If you’re ready to make the move and start surfing in Sayulita, here’s a list of the top spots. Our locals have been surfing these waters for years and we’re here to share the best places to hit the waves.
First on the list is Sandbar – the beach Sayulita is most famous for. With its mellow waves and protection from the open ocean, it is a great spot for beginners to find their feet. This beach faces North which reduces the odds of getting any big swells. The popularity of this beach does come with a catch – it’s often packed. Seriously though, it’s a busy place to be. Regardless, Sandbar is awesome for newbies looking to take a crack at surfing.
Next up we have Sayulita Left – a sweet wave if you catch it on the right day … and season. During the summer when the swell is heavier, you can expect to have a great day on the water. Neighbouring Sayulita Right, this spot is great for beginners/intermediate-level surfers. The waves permit a quick and super fun ride, perfectly suited for all you goofy ‘boarders out there! When the conditions are prime, you’ll be able to enjoy a pretty long ride gazing at the coast of vibrant Sayulita.
Finally our list concludes with Sayulita Right – S Left’s more consistent neighbour. Breaking at the mouth of the river Nayarit, this spot is perfect for longboarders and beginners. With waves that scarcely ever climb overhead, it’s the perfect mellow condition to ride. For best waves, go during low to middle tide and be wary of its busyness.
If you’re new to the surf scene or are unsure of the best time to hit up the renowned beaches this colourful town has to offer, don’t worry. We have all the info you need to succeed in your surfing passion. Take a look at the list below to find out everything you need to know about surf seasons in Sayulita.
Winter in Sayulita (November through to March) offers a series of chilled-out waves and calm ocean conditions. Wave height usually maxes out around head to chest height during these months. With the weather being consistently warm and sunny throughout this time of year, there’s no better season to enjoy a fun but mellow surf.
Summer in Sayulita (April to September) is a totally different story. It’s the peak season for surfers and tourists alike. Beginners be warned, as these months boast a much stronger and more powerful swell. With a heavy force coming from the South to South-West direction, conditions are great for experienced ‘boarders looking to shred some lofty waves. You can expect to see wave height getting into the double and triple overhead range during this time of year. The weather still dances along with the thirty-degree range, with the later months getting gradually more humid.
