The surf

The ideal swell direction in El Salvador is S-SW and breaks year round with double-triple overhead head waves often during the winter season (May - October). The main and most famous wave in the country is Punta Roca in the town of La Libertad (5 minutes drive from El Tunco). This world-class wave peels fast and perfect over shallow black boulders with hollow tubes and speed sections. La Bocana shapes the sand of Rio Grande into powerful hollow lefts and short rights. This is the main lefthand wave in the town of El Tunco. You can surf this spot out in front of Tortuga Surf Lodge. Sunzal (across the beach) is a very consistent right-hand point with a mellow wave and long paddle. It can produce fun walls and holds any size of swell. It is a popular place for beginners and longboarders.
