Surfing the East Cape
Immersed in the bowels of La Baja desert Nine Palms is a Mexican jewel, a true oasis of surf in Cabo. From March to October (Spring/Summer) the swells coming from the south bring with them fun surfing sessions at this point break, a good option if the day is not windy.
The popularity of this spot has grown slowly due to more accesible roads being constructed but remains friendly and accesible regarding locals welcoming tourists to surf its waves.
The wave is a rocky bottom one from 3 to 10-feet high that breaks to the right and consists of 2 sections; the first section (where the wave starts) gives local and international surfers a friendly water ramp with a very simple drop for a long distance, enjoyable by surfers of every level with any kind of surfboard.
The second section comes across a rock coming out of the bottom, when there is low tide you will be able to see the rock and position yourself to the right of it and catch the water ramp of this section, it has less height than the first one but equally fun and long.
It’s recommended to use long sleeve rash guard and lots of sunscreen due to the high temperatures of the desert (in hot seasons) that may get more than one surfer sunburned.
