About K38, K38.5, K39

K38, aka El Morro, is a famous but very crowded right, peeling fast and hollow over an urchin farm. Best on a S swell, or a stronger W to NW pulse at low to mid. Working on similar swells but higher tides, K38.5 is another fast, walled-up right reef plus a left across the bay. Escape the thicker crowds by paddling to K39, an outside-breaking reef able to produce quality lefts and rights in any sizeable swell.
