Course Area Punta Cabras, Baja California

Outback Adventures has been conducting surf trips in Baja California for several years now and we have fostered many positive relationships with our friends in Mexico and have developed an extensive working knowledge of the area. Punta Cabras is a point of land jutting into the Pacific about 5 miles north of Ejido Eréndira. North of the point is a long bay, to the south is a south facing bay perfect for those learning to surf as well as those already skilled. Ejido Eréndira is a small community located in the municipality of Ensenada in the state of Baja California. It is 100 km south of the city of Ensenada. It has a population of about 1,170 people most of whom make a living by fishing.  Erédira is an isolated and undeveloped beach. While it has areas with the rough, cold seas common on the Pacific side of Baja California, there are rocky outcroppings that form pools of seawater that are protected from the open ocean. Nearby there is an area that had been used by pre-historic peoples that gathered seasonally here to collect shellfish such as clams, sea snails, mussels and other. They left a layer of shells over eight meters thick that Canadian archeologists have dated back over 10,000 years. The first Europeans arrived here in 1542 when viceroy Antonio de Mendoza send Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo. Wildlife to be found in the areas, aside from shellfish, include migrating whales, dolphins, seals, pelicans, seagulls, sea anemones, limpets, sea snails and small fish.
