las islitas

Edit Spot

i like it very much i think people there is great and locals some are really good surfer, i mean with world competition level
its a great a place to beginners in december-febraury but in a good season it can take a shit out of you.and it helps you to work in your moves but in not a powerful wave, matanchen it is but when the season it`s on
but its long enough to get tired, and its a very good tube(rights)

calm, friendly locals, really good food, a lot of mosquitos, but in good conditions it worth it
is hot in summer, very hot and some rain too, in december there is a nice weather but small waves. water cold in spring cause the
current of north but in general you only need a trunk and sunblock.

Additional Info:
you can use from a 5´8 to a 7´0 surfboard, san blas(rights and lefts) is hard when it grows there is the time to go to matanchen when san blas is big, it wont let you get in, so you have to go to the other beahes, (matanchen , platanitos, santa curz or stoners - rights), they are very close.


go to tepic, a take a bus to san blas and then to matanchen it`s only ten minutes away.
