in the area:
Our local wave, Punta Mango is a powerful right cobblestone point break w/200yds rides when on. Punta Mango wave offers a fast take off with a hollow barrel inside section. Wave starts working on a 3ft+ swell and all tides, but 4-7 ft SW is best, on big days be prepared and bring your step up.

El Salvador Surf season:
In El Salvador we have waves all year round, but here we have a brief description of the different surf seasons:
March-May: very consistent and clean waves (6- 12 ft). During this period there are many days when conditions are great to surf all day long. Be prepared to get some of the best waves in your life.
June-October: during these season waves range from 6 to 12 ft, originating from the South Pacific’s swells. Some days with epic conditions with amazing surf all day long.
November-December: There still good waves, a little bit less consistent, but when waves arrive they’re just simply perfect (4- 6 ft). Water and temperature drops a few degrees (78-degree) but still wetsuit not needed. Offshore winds allow perfect surfing conditions all day long.
January-February: These are the less consistent months of the year, waves get smaller (2- 5 ft), however the climate is perfect with cool evenings and bright sunny days. This is the perfect time of the year to learn how to surf or to score clean backbreaker peaks.
