Add a New Surf SpotRegional Overview
Guatemala and El Salvador, the former famed for its black sand beaches and the latter for long right pointbreaks like Punta Roca. Facing south-west the region makes the most of the swells swinging up from the pacific. The best swell arrives during the dry season (December to April). The extreme heat and lack of precipitation contrasts sharply with the wet season, guaranteed to rain heavily every afternoon making spot access occasionally tricky. Dominant wins are offshore from the north-east with morning offshores and afternoon onshores. After years of instability the countries are now relatively safe to travel through. The area was first surfed in the 1960s by Peace Corps volunteers. Water temperatures rarely vary, hovering around 27-28°C or 81 to 82°F.

News Image Surf the Amazon
Imagine surfing the world’s longest wave, up the world’s greatest river, miles from civilisation and deep within the most impressive rainforest on earth. Adventure tour operator Ativa Adventures wants to make that image reality by offering trips for advanced surfers to ride the mighty Pororoca tidal bore on the Amazon River in Brazil. This is an extreme adventure, with real dangers, and miles away from civilisation. Crocodiles, snakes, piranhas, and a wall of white water tearing up everything in its path... But if we get it right, and we have everything in place to ensure that we do, you will experience the most beautiful sight a surfer will EVER get to see. Amazing lefts and rights, barrels that last for minutes, all while surrounded by the stunning, ecologically diverse and completely fascinating Amazon rainforest. Here is an extract from a journal kept by one of our first travellers to the Pororoca:
