Chicama is known as longest left in the world. Chicama’s not often working at its best, which is a south or southwest swell anywhere from 6 to 12 feet. But it’s often working, catching southerly and westerly swells of a meter or more and pitching them up to be sculpted by nearly constant offshore winds. There are four breaks and gaps between them, so it’s not the one wild ride.

This year Slater and Hurly Executive took on Hawaiian Airlines in the fight and we moved them down to Kook status.
Driving though those dirt road towns that felt like the wild west, I would always be transported to a mythical time—at the very least I would be able to surf some sick waves without tons of OC kooks in the line-up (no offense to you if you live in the OC, that's where I grew up).
Recent research has proven beyond reasonable doubt that one road to happiness is traveling. The happier you are, the healthier you are. And the healthier you are, the more creative and productive you can become. So why is traveling so important for happiness? Experts agree it boils down to these factors:
Pascuales spits like a dragon and swells slam the coast, twisting and raging as it unleashes it's deepest inner desire to be free.

Do you feel like surfing in some warm waterc while throwing back a few cold ones? Then Cabo might be the right trip for you. Cabo is one of the few spots on the planet where you are exposed to two major swell directions within a one hour drive. I am not sure how many places there are like this on the planet, I am guessing only a few. Stoked.
I had just finished four days of Unleash the Power Within and I was ready to surf. I opened Google and typed in Bells Beach and learned that it was located an hour from Melbourne. Then I learned something else; the south swell hitting Bali was also hitting Bells Beach. They both have the same swell window from the south, my bell was ringing.
Located in mainland Mexico at the entrance to the Sea of Cortez, the area is a magnet for south and southwest swells. Ranging from hollow A-frame beach breaks to incredible world class point breaks, surfers of all ability levels will get a thrill of a lifetime—or at lest Mexico-time. The point breaks offer truly remarkable waves that can wrap for more than 500 yards. This wave can be both a hollow and thumpy—offering some barrel time and fast shoulders to race into the inside.
