El Buey is a big wave arena, 700m (2100ft) offshore from the modern beach scene of playa El Laucho. Even though it can break both ways, the left remains the better option, as it’s always hollower than the right. The left will focus S-SSW swells into booming barrels, while the right will wall up anything with more W in it and offer roller coaster walls. The spot can hold 20ft (6m), but is quite wind sensitive.
Breaks with medium consistency and is rarely-crowded over a large, shifting peak playing field. Set dodging experience and big lungs required when it heads beyond the triple-overhead mark.
