K-38 is a good right hand point break and one of the best-known spots in Northern Baja. If there are waves you will definitely find a crowd at K-38. K-38 is a fun mushy right reef break at high tides. During low to medium tides K-38 get fast and hallow, also the giant rocks that are normally covered get exposed so take caution. K-38 is easy to check out and easy to get to, which is another reason why it gets so crowded. Booties are recommended when surfing K-38 due to the rock reef, booties will help you get safely back in. Make sure that you lock your car up good; a few people have gotten their cars broken into here.
