"Wavehunters booked us an amazing trip to the Las Flores surf resort in El Salvador. They helped to pick the appropriate destination for our surfing skill level (and our accommodation requirements) and planned all the logistics. Everything was flawless, and the resort was exceptional! It is highly recommended."

"I just returned from a trip I booked through Henry at Wavehunters to Tavarua Fiji. I highly suggest anyone looking into a surf travel vacation book through Wavehunters with Henry. Not only did he take the time to answer questions I had regarding the accommodations and specifics of the trip, but he also booked our plane ticket and extra night at a hotel when our official trip was done. He took care of everything. He even emailed me information about the type of plane we were flying and a diagram of seating, so I could tell what type of seats we had and where it was located on the plane. He even gave us a great parking suggestion, so we could save money and made it super convenient to park and fly. Wavehunters got me the dates I wanted and for less expensive. Go with Henry and Wavehunters!"

"I've heard some surfers complained that premium surf trips organized by Wavehunters go against the spirit of the global quest for the perfect ride. In some regards, such notions aren't completely off the mark, but if you're a working stiff like me who can't spend a month away from the office, Wavehunters will plan your trip for you with surgical precision. No matter how romantic the concept of the noble savage is, I prefer an air-conditioned room over a mosquito net and working toilets over digging your own hole. And frankly, I work too damn hard to have to worry about bringing enough water purification tablets with me when I go on vacation. When the plan for a snowboarding trip to Argentina began to unravel, I looked for other opportunities to ride in an exotic place where the dollar was still worth a damn. A half day's brainstorming and web searching led me to Henry Morales at Wavehunters and the Las Flores resort in eastern El Salvador. Henry was extremely helpful and very responsive to each phone call or email I sent. Confirmations came quickly and my week's stay was finalized with zero complications. The resort itself was damn near perfect in every way. I scored two days worth of really fun surf (anyone who has gone on a surf trip knows how fickle conditions can be and how easy it is to get skunked), the staff was amazingly kind, and the food was great. Maybe one of these days I'll drop off the grid and spend months roaming the world and living in 5 USD shacks. Until then, I'll be utilizing Wavehunters to plan my week long sabbaticals for the type of spiritual renewal that only a good barrel ride can provide."
