For everyone who bitches that the surf industry is run by kooks who don’t surf, come on over to our house. Our men’s buyer, Christine, won the commitment challenge over New Year’s when she and her posse rambled 13 tough hours past the boarder to San Juanico’s legendary Scorpion Bay. What used to be a super sleepy, semi-secret fishing village is slowing growing into one of Baja’s more popular surf destinations, complete with a camp, a small restaurant and bar, and handfuls of trailer-living ex-pats enjoying life on the outskirts. But the surf itself is still holding strong, with three point breaks that offer consistent right-handers, especially during big south swells. Christine was nice enough to let us post some of her photos, as long as we swore not to reveal their secret spots.
