Ten surf breaks less than 30 minutes away from true comfort...
From west swells on Punta de Mita's Faro, La Lancha and Burros to Sayulita's longboard right and San Pancho's beach pounders, you'll find yourself in the middle of some great choices.
Sayulita offers a great right break for beginners and longboard riders, and a speedy left break for rippers. Nayarit's waves are smaller in the summer months -- the area's off season -- but even 3-foot waves can provide 20-second rides.
Punta Mita offers six slowly peeling breaks perfect for lazy-day longboarding. The beach-pounding breaks at San Francisco -- known locally as San Pancho -- and Lo de Marco are much less crowded but demand a bit more skill (hint: Bail early or eat sand).
