A few pics of my two week trip unfortunately for you guys they are all of me so you don't get to see the better sailors.
Punta San Carlos is a tiny Mexican camp 3 hours Cessna flight south of the border pretty much consisting of a dodgy airstrip, a few tents and a bar full of tequila.
The waves weren't big mostly waste to head high on the sets pretty clean and forgiving protected by a small island jutting off the coast.

Film clip mainly of Jem Hall and Jamie Hancock (British sailor on the AWT)
The big waves were out on the bombie on the best day, pity we didn't get more of it but then I was pretty happy with what we got.

What ever made you think that Damo .........yes I do have a shark fear, but I love the ocean too much to let them scare me away, I've become extremely efficient at waterstarting out the back of Goats The Derwent & Dorans I'm not too worried about because I think what intelligent shark is going to swim in poo infested waters, not like us desperado windsurfers.
