    Love that wave, scored it couple years ago with just my buddy and one local, the biggest sea lion I’ve ever seen. Good times.

    • Peter

      hi there, whats the name of the spot? i am going to be in baja in february 2014 and i love rights, would be good to surf there

      • HumboldttoBaja

        Peter….you’re not going give it up. Plus you don’t want to surf there in the winter. Go to Califia or K-58 and save some gas money

  • Markus

    Nice

  • Imakook-fo-sure

    Kalani Robb! Great surfer, great actor too! Love the Pacifico beer ads

  • Peter

    whats the name of that surfspot?

    • HumboldttoBaja

      No one in their right mind who knows where that wave is would nor should ever tell you its location. Get in your car and find it yourself Peter

        Hi there, I am from Peru, I am traveling from California to Peru by car surfing along the american coast for about a year. I am traveling alone, not with a bunch of brazilians hahaha. so dont worry about the crowds

  • Senator

    Yeah, what’s the name? Will someone please open that door and let us in?

    • Peter

      isla natividad, not that hard to figure out, just a 15 minute search on the web

  • rico

    SWEET!!! Typical baja:)

  • jodiego

    Pretty boring stuff.

  • bigfrog

    badass

  • Sarah

    Great song. You should give credit to the Allah-Las for this one.

  • HumboldttoBaja

    I wonder what Santiago, Castillo and Snips think about this? I’m sure they’re stoked on the exposure. Be sure to draw a map highlighting how to get there with a big red X marking the wave next time. Can’t wait to have to surf Alaska and Nova Scotia in years to come to get away from Orange County goons ruining perfection. Thanks Boneheads…..

      i was hoping they would post chatty’s phone number in the credits. i’ve already lost hope though, last time i was there two boats full of brazilian spongers were occupying the line up.

      • Peter

        just the name of the spot, or a nearby town wont make any crowds. i have seen that wave in many videos, i dont know how secret it is.

      • Peter

        got the name allready!

    • vegansurfersuperathlete

      Who gives a fuck man? You’re acting like we’re gonna run out of waves in the world? Your whole secret spot mentality distracts you from the supreme realization that you are on a board, surfing a wave on a planet rotating around a goddamn star. Excuse me what secret spot? This whole damn planet is our secret spot stop acting like you can cut up the planet into spots for locals, spots for beginners, spots for foreigners, enjoy life man. Your though pattern within public consciousness needs to end on all levels. For real.

      Who gives cares man? You’re acting like we’re gonna run out of waves in the on planet earth? Your whole secret spot mentality distracts you from the supreme realization that you are on a board, surfing a wave on a planet rotating around a goddamn star. Excuse me what secret spot? This whole damn planet is our secret spot please stop acting like you can cut up the earth into spots for locals, spots for beginners, spots for foreigners, enjoy life man.

        Dear Vegan Man,
        It’s obviously not a secret spot. However, each time a person figures out where a spot is, the more crowded it will become over the years. For example, you find out about a wave, tell your friends how much fun you had, and the next time they get time off to take a trip maybe they go with friends who end up telling their friends and it spider-webs and snowballs from there to become a crowded San Juanico. All I’m saying is that I hate crowds and take pride and pleasure in crossing that imaginary line into Mexico. I drive those long hours and spend the gas money to get away from everyone. This wave is a gem and those who know of and who’ve surfed it will understand where I’m coming from. Enjoy your bean sprouts and carrot sticks hippy. Peace and Love

    I miss camalu, and Costa Brava. However I am paddling out tomorrow morning for some tropical storm surge that made it’s way up to Rhode Island. Love Hurricane season in New England. If you’ve never surfed Rhode Island don’t worry; just move along, there’s nothing to see here you lookey lous.

  • Martin

    I think that the spot is on the north of Perú.

    • Peter

      there is one similar place, el golf in talara, but is very fickle

  • jay adams

    funny how humbolt man is acting like no one knows where this place is..Stop being a greedy lil surfer kook and share a few,theres more than enough just have fun and stop crying you sound like greedy lil kids who wont share their toys

    • lurk

      HA

  • Mike

    Apparently this spot is only secret to people outside of SoCal. Even if you didn’t know by now, there are more than enough clues to figure it out on your own. There is not reason to ask someone to “out” this spot on some message board.

  • shlonky

    Weak! I guess if you are 5 foot tall scummington fag this is cool enough to post.
    Glad you didn’t get it when it was on. Suck it easy.
