Surfing Silverbacks at Red Frog Bungalows, Panama from WaterWays Surf Adventures on Vimeo.

2008 footage of Team RVCA on a guided trip to Silverbacks, a right reef that hucks a big barrel right on takeoff, and can get Hawaii big, a challenging wave by any standard. This wave is for experienced surfers on serious guns, and tow surfing is getting popular here. Just one of many spots you can surf when traveling to Bocas del Toro Panama, and staying at Red Frog Bungalows.

There are over 10 good waves within 20 minutes from the resort. Some of these, like the wedging right at Silverbacks, are world-class and challenging; others are beginner and intermediate-friendly. Co-owners Scott Balogh and Scott Beck have surfed all over the world, and now they explore all corners of these islands in 26-foot fast boats: Drop you in the lineup then wait in the channel with cold drinks, food and cameras while you surf your brains out.
