The Inertia

Let’s make no bones about it, Puerto Escondido is an absolutely terrifying wave. Careers can be made or destroyed in this part of Mainland Mexico. As you can clearly see from this 12-minute cut from the SoCal Surfer YouTube page, and image maker Maria Fernanda. This wave takes so much knowledge and experience. And even then things can go wrong, as it looks like something went wrong in the middle part of this video when you can see a surfer waving his board at the water patrol. To surf Puerto, one needs said skill and a healthy dose of courage. And that certainly doesn’t guarantee success.


Only the best. We promise.
