WAVE

Zippers in Costa Azul is mainly a right point Beach break, it breaks best on solid south swell and a medium tide, it has it best shape at 4 to 5 foot, the bottom is sand over boulders.

The take off is a short steep fastdrop and then it’s a fast lippy wave with a few good sections to hit! The inside is shalow over the rocks with a nice quick barrel section at the beach. The best board to beach break through the channel. On a big day sit way outside! Be careful...if you wipe out on the take off you will end up on the rocks! The best spot to bust an air ir on the second section towards the middle as the wave picks up speed.
