LAS FLORES:

This is an incredible wave breaking on a picturesque point lined with palm trees. The wave starts in front of the rocky outcrop at the tip of the point with a fast hollow section as the bottom changes from rock to sand. The wave then bends through the sand bottomed inside keeping an open face and offering more barrel sections. It’s a fun wave for medium to experienced surfers. Tides play an important role at this wave and some currents can be found.

PUNTA MANGO:

Also known as Punta Silla, this is a fast hollow wave breaking down a cobblestone point surrounded by beautiful mountains, a tube addict’s paradise. Seldom will you see a local here other than your surf guide. Get ready for a lot of speed and some unforgettable tubes. Punta Mango is the east coast’s version of the perfect wave.

LA VENTANA:

Pure fun in the 2 to 5 foot swell range, La Ventana is a nice beach break for the smaller days. At La Ventana Beach the mountains meet the ocean taking the shape of a giant window making this beach a special spot to rip some waves.

There are more right points for you to discover in the east coast, such as La Vaca, El Toro, and others, come along and see them for yourself.

Seasons & Weather

Seasons & Weather

El Salvador has two seasons, dry and wet.

The dry season of November through April/May typically sees offshore winds, sunny skies and consistent surf in the chest to head high range.

Although less frequent than during the wet season, large swells do roll through this time of year and it is not unheard of to get overhead waves by late February.

The wet season months of May/June through October see the largest and most consistent swells with average wave height in the head high+ range, with the larger 8’-12’ swells coming through consistently. The weather patterns during this time of year typically have glassy mornings with a light onshore flow starting in the late morning to early afternoon.

Although these months can receive a lot of rain, rain showers usually start in the late afternoon, often raining through the night. Mornings and early afternoons often have sunny skies and perfect peeling surf.

El Salvador is a year round surf destination with water temps in the low 80’s and air temperatures in the mid to high 80’s year round. Do not be discouraged by the rainy season with its afternoon onshore flow of wind. El Salvador has miles of coastline riddled with right points and beach break. The points are so good, that even with a little wind they still break cleaner than most beach or reef breaks around the world.
