Back to Baja

It has been a while since I was in Baja. The last time consisted of a long drive starting from Lake and winding all the way down the 800-mile peninsula. That trip ended badly. So it was finally time for a refresh.

An easy flight from to Cabo San Lucas, and then a 1.5 hour drive north to Cerrito, put me right on a south, southwest swell that pumped all week. It was a good off point to visit Todos Santos, La Paz, and the numerous breaks radiating out in all directions.

Because and the Pacific Plate continues to separate from the Mexican mainland like a zipper, this geologic phenomenon will only continue to widen the of Cortez by about 2 inches per year, leaving plenty of room for whales and waves – and you – to up and down both sides of its tip.
