Frequently asked questions

The wave size varies by time of day, seasonality, and other factors. The waves here are usually a bit larger than they are in Sayulita. We still have plenty of small to medium 2-4 foot waves, but more frequent larger ones as well.
Not at all! This beach is great for intermediate surfers as well. It is however recommended that you have some basic surf experience for this trip. For beginners, we recommend starting off in Sayulita.
