El Salvador surfing is roughly divided into 2 surfing
zones, LA LIBERTAD area in the Northwest which
encompasses about a dozen different breaks of high
quality starting at the coastal town of La Libertad
(only a 30 minute drive from the airport) and
extending for about an hour's drive northward along a
mountainous and scenic coast. The other area is known
as the WILD EAST and lies about 3 hours drive south
and eastward down the coast. This remote area is less
trafficked and boasts the world class righthanders Las
Flores and Punta Mango.
Because of its classic point set-ups, El Salvador
surfing doesn’t close out even on the biggest swells.
While at least 2 of the spots could be considered
serious barrels when on, the majority of spots offer
classic down the line surfing. Though waves up to
double overhead+ are common, gunny boards are
generally not needed. 6-0 to 6-10 thrusters are ideal.
Funboards, longboards and fish also work well in the
El Salvador lineups. El Salvador's waves are just so
lined up and machine-like, with so much open wave
face, it is like a skate park.
El Salvador has two seasons: Dry Season (Nov-March)
and Rainy season (April-October). The Dry season on
summer has solid waves around the 2-4 ft., and the
Rainy season which is actually dry and sunny almost
every day with occasional storms during afternoons and
evenings averages around 6 ft. with days around
the8-12 ft. We combine the surftrips with sightseeing
tours like Mayan Ruins, City tour and Eco-Tours like
volcano climbing, Canopy over Coffee plantation in the
mountains or visits to beautiful lakes.
