Video: There’s never any doubt that each summer Puerto Escondido, one of the world’s most feared big waves, will go off. This season it’s been a blur of pumping swell!

Swells hit the Puerto Escondido sandbars at Zicatela Beach in such a way that the waves jack up in size, which is often emphasised by a backwash. Magazine photos of this place are misleading – the waves close-out often and the paddle-out can be severe. Usually the rights break best. The wave is fickle, and will often be blown out by 11am. There’s large numbers of skilled surfers in the water hoping for the bomb that stays open long enough to escape. Despite all this, it’s still a year-round Mecca for big barrel hunters!
