Pistols is the wave in the north section of El Transito. The beach is a crescent shaped cove book-ended by lava rock formations. There is a wedging right that comes up off of the north rocks and a left that is formed off of the south rocks. There are 1 to 2 shifty peaks in the middle of the cove, depending on the swell conditions. For intermediate to advanced level surfers. Fun for short, heavy barrel rides, air sections, turns and a short paddle out. Sand – bottom.
