Length of the surf session: 180 min
I surfed Banzai for years and it was always fun to surf. The wave is a short, but extremely powerful bowl that breaks into a hollow tube for 15-20 meters. The takeoff is tough, as only late takeoffs will access the wave, it is a matter of standing and turning right away, to travel inside the hollow tube. Alternatively, you can go straight and do a powerful bottom turn, but beware of shallow corals full of urchins. After the bottom turn and maybe one visit to the lip, your wave is pretty much over, it is that short. It is located on the East side of a deep canal that allows ships the access to the port of Boca Chica and to get there, you must paddle across that canal. The West side of the canal has another break called La Boya, which is also listed on this site. Banzai is great when all other spots are too small, as waves here are about 2 feet higher than other breaks.
