Sayulita Surf Breaks: Great Waves for all Surfing Levels!

Javier Chavez Wildmex

With over 19 surf breaks in Sayulita and around this tranquil surf town, it’s no wonder that many of Mexico’s professional surfers started here. Sayulita's main beach is great for beginner surfers but intermediate and advanced surfers... don’t think this beach is not for you; when a large swell rolls in the surf is pumping.

The lineups in the areas of Sayulita and Punta Mita are very friendly for all surfing levels whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced surfer. Don’t be surprised if you are sitting in the lineup with some of Mexico’s best surfers sharing waves, laughing, getting surf tips and sometimes swapping boards! Last week I was surfing one of our local surf breaks and swapped boards with one of Mexico’s top longboarders and wow I had no idea what my surfboard was capable of until he rode it. So if you are looking for an amazing surf destination, look no further and come to Sayulita.
