Tres Palmas is the big boy in Rincon and only breaks when there is massive swell coming. When you see shots of 20+ waves in Rincon, you’re seeing Tres. This is a reef break far from the shore and can have a powerful current. A great place for experienced surfers and big wave riders. Rideable from 12’ to 25’. Swell NW, Wind E.
The water and shoreline at Tres Palmas is now officially a marine reserve, allowing for protection of the endangered elkhorn coral stands and fish life that inhabit these waters.
