Southern Coast

This area has very strong N to NE winds from October to March caused by a high-pressure gradient between the Gulf of Mexico and the North and Pacific Ocean. These winds blow in ranges of 25-35 knots almost every week, and blowout the surf in the area, but from April to October the wind diminishes to less than 15 knots. From April to October is when consistent 4-6 ft swells wrap into the region with strong 6-12 ft swells arrive almost once every two weeks.

There are 10 different surf breaks to choose from, so crowds are hard to come by. Most of the spots are so remote and unknown that rarely do you even see other surfers.

The surf camp is located in Salina Cruz that's in this region. Salina Cruz is an industrial town with an oil-based economy featuring a large refinery and commercial port. There are only very few surfers in the town, so the waves are only for you and your friends. Surfing In Mexico Spring BreakThe weather in the region is very pleasant year round with mild temperatures and sunny days the majority of the time. The average temperature is 80-90°F with little variation between night and day, summer and winter.

November through May is the dry season. This means no rain, not even a drop. June through October is the wet season. This means a lot of rain, normally in the evening or at night, leaving the day free of rain and excellent for surfing. This is also the best time of the year for the larger, more consistent surf. The Water temps range from 70-80 degrees in the surf season.

Northern Coast

This area is in the Huatulco surroundings and it’s located about 1.5 hours north from Salina Cruz. There are some 5 different surf breaks in this region. The area has wind protection and offers year-round good surfing conditions, best in the mornings, however many of the points hold their shape throughout the day. The most consistent swells are from March to early November when the surf turns into 4-6 foot swells with bigger 8-12 ft swells possible.

This area provides a reliable option when the swell is small or wind blown in the southern region. The North Coast generally has the same climate conditions as the southern coast but without the strong north winds from October to March.
