Surf

Surf

Nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the mountains of Oaxaca along the coast of Southern Mexico, Playa el Mojon is in the center of a true surfing paradise.

We provide surf guiding between the areas of Huatulco and Salina Cruz, consisting of approximately 8 right point-breaks. 5 of these well-known waves are easy to score with most South swells. Some waves require more specific conditions, are not well-known to most, and are impressive in the peak season.

Huatulco, (the nearby resort town) is a 30-40 minute drive from Playa el Mojon and has its own international airport allowing easy access for our guests.  The hacienda is just 2 hours from Puerto Escondido and 2.5 hours from Salina Cruz.

Typically, the waves range from long, mushy and mellow, to fast, hollow and full barrels.

Swells can range between 2’-4’ and 6’-8’+.  With favorable summer rains, the sand shapes the sea floor, resulting in a perfectly shaped sand point wave.

Due to geographic variations, there are options to ride smaller or larger waves during a given swell. For example, if the top spots are 8’+, there are other spots that would be in a 4’-6’ range, allowing us the flexibility to cater to various levels of surfing ability.

The right point break at Playa el Mojon is a short, walking distance from the hacienda. Guests can easily keep an eye on the wave from the comfort of the hacienda.

The season in this particular region of Mexico is April through October when the south swells consistently correspond with favorable, or at least workable, wind conditions.

Seasons & Weather

Seasons & Weather

Mexico divides into two surf seasons, and they both have their advantages: March to October is southern hemisphere swell time and Mexico is swept with energy from the southern hemisphere. November to April provides a sunny, warm-water escape for frigid refugees from the upper 48, with surf that is generally smaller, but with dry offshores and perfect conditions. WaterWays has designed packages to take advantage of the variety of conditions available throughout the year, and offer a variety of Mexico surf packages.

Northern mainland, the area around Mazatlan, is best during the wet season months of April through October. During these months surf is generated from both the southern hemisphere and local hurricanes that spin up the coast from Central America and usually dissipate around the tip of Cabo San Lucas. Do not let the rain discourage your trip to this area. The showers are usually brief, occurring in the late afternoon, when you most likely will be taking a siesta after surfing all morning. The rain will lull you to sleep.

Central mainland Mexico, the area around Puerto Vallarta, picks up swells from the northwest to the southwest. Best months in this area are typically the dryer months of November through May. Surfers whose tans have faded and can no longer feel their fingers and toes surfing north of the border, flock to Mexico this time of year to shed the rubber and defrost their bones.

Traveling out of the bay of Puerto Vallarta and heading south, the coastline turns to the east by southeast and faces a more southerly direction. The south coast around Puerto Escondido is best during the south swell months of April through October.

Southern mainland Mexico is the location of our newest surf packages. Punta Escondida Surf Tours covers the Huatulco and Salina Cruz region. This section of coast begins to bend southeast into the Gulf of Tehuantepec making it an ideal location for the strong south swells generated during the wet season, April through October. This newly discovered and difficult to access area is host to numerous world-class sand-bottomed points and hollow beachbreaks.
