Surfing Shipwrecks, Baja
Shipwrecks is a right point break that wraps into the sandy cove in Cabo. Although Shipwrecks holds a large swell, it can also be fun with a smaller swell. Waves also break on the other end of this bay (east end - left breaking) the shape is not as consistent. Shipwrecks is also a great beach for just hanging out! Most people at Shipwrecks are camper from the U.S. and Canada. Some people confuse Shipwrecks with Punta Gorda which is a right reef point break just Northeast of Shipwrecks. Punta Gorda needs to have a really big swell to break.
