general information

Paunch Reef is located on Bocas' main island of Isla Colon, the closest good break from Bocas Town. It's also popular as it is a fun wave that is usually not as gnarly as Dumpers or the Bluff further north. A long left walls over a coral reef on north to northeast swells. Can have hollow sections in bigger swells, but mostly it's fun. Shorter rights may be on offer as well, but the left is the preferred wave.
