Day 1 Arrival
Welcome to the heart of Central America, where our tropical jungles, quiet colonial towns, eco friendly coffee plantations, smoking volcanoes, and the secluded beaches of El Salvador will simply take your breath away! Our instructional adventure tour begins with a scenic journey from Comalapa International Airport to the beautiful beaches of Costa del Sol in the department of La Paz (only about half an hour drive - 35 kms away). Costa del Sol’s gentle beach break, combined with the smooth waters and breathtaking scenery of the estuary are the ideal setting for our surf clinic.
Upon arrival, we'll head to our beginner’s break (which is right in front of our base camp). Our professional instructors provide proper surf boards which will help you get started in one of the most exciting and popular sports our country has to offer. The equipment consists of a longboard that has been chosen according to your size and ability level, a leash, and a bar of wax. Before we get in the water, you’ll learn surf basics: water safety, reading the ocean, proper standing, proper foot positioning, balance and paddling techniques, surf etiquette and much more. These practice drills are first carried out on the sand until everybody gets comfortable. Instructors always check with our guests to find out individual comfort levels. At night we’ll enjoy dinner at one of our selected seafood restaurants.
Day 2 (Morning session)
Shortly after breakfast we’ll hit the water and resume with our surfing lessons. On this day you will be encouraged to practice fluid stand-up movements on your surf board, as well as correct positioning and body movement for turning. Most probably we’ll have the beach all to ourselves, therefore, there’s always plenty of space available so you can focus on your surfing instead of worrying about the crowds. After the surf session you’ll we’ll have a break before it’s time for a well deserved lunch at one of the local restaurants.
Day 2 (Afternoon session)
After our meal, you can relax on one of the hammocks at our pier, or relax by the pool. Your afternoon schedule takes you wake surfing through amazing mangrove forests. The views of flora and fauna are spectacular, especially during October, which are home to many migrating birds. This popular part of our surf clinic will build your confidence as you get to spend more time on top of the board; while teaching you how to properly turn from rail to rail. This method does wonders by guarantying a fun packed experience. As our day ends, you will get to see some of the most beautiful sunsets El Salvador has to offer. We can’t get enough… For dinner we will visit another great seafood restaurant.
Day 3 (Morning session)
We'll start our day with some basic surf drills in the resort’s swimming pool. Here you will learn how to perform an efficient “turtle roll” (if riding a long-board), or a “duck dive” (if using a shorter board). You will also be encouraged to practice correct paddling technique as well as good positioning on the surfboard. These exercises will not only build up your confidence level in the water, but they will also build a solid base needed to efficiently catch and ride waves. After our class we’ll have our usual break and then enjoy lunch at a local restaurant.
Day 3 (Afternoon session)
The afternoon will be spent again at the estuary. We will immerse ourselves in the unique ecosystem of the mangrove forest; wakesurfing through the channels or just relaxing in our boat till sunset. We will have dinner at your favorite restaurant.
Day 4/7 (Morning and afternoon sessions)
During the morning you’ll have the chance to practice all the skills you’ve learned over the last few days one more time on the beach break, before heading towards our next destination: world-class Salvadorian point-break, El Sunzal.
This is one of the most popular surf spots in the country, mainly due to its consistency and quality. It is a long rideable right breaking wave with multiple take-off zones. Sunzal is always a good call when everywhere else is flat, and it’s considered by many to be the perfect beginner’s point break in El Salvador due to its mellow and forgiving wave.
At high tide, long boarders will feel right at home at this spot. At low tide, short boarders will find a hollow and rippeable inside section. Being a deep water break, the place can hold up to any swell size and it’s definitely a must in any Salvadorian surf trip. Our instructors will be right there beside you all the time, giving you expert advice on how the point-break works, and encouraging you to start catching and surfing your first unbroken waves! You will have two surf sessions with instruction each day for the next few days, visiting some of the other point breaks that have made El Salvador famous throughout the international surfing community. We will enjoy delicious meals at many local restaurants, and enjoy the entire friendly atmosphere that El Salvador’s surf scene has to offer!
