    El Zonte, El Salvador Surfing

    El Zonte, El Salvador Surfing:

    The super chill town of El Zonte has a good variety of surf from Beach Break, Right Point and Hallow Left Hander. The beach breaks work at all tides, point at low to med best and inside left hander we call baby Green Bush works at low tide just grinding off the sand bottom… One of the first spots to max out on an incoming swell, not good for anything over 6’

    K59 / K61, El Salvador Surfing

    K59 / K61, El Salvador Surfing:

    Super high performance wave, two right points lined up next to each other and sometimes runs all the way through on a perfect direction and swell size. K61 a bit more critical wave than K59 but offers barrel sections, fast racing lines for medium to advance surfers. K59 also a high performance wave but less critical than K61 but just as fun and more ride able for the intermediate surfer.

    • Performance:  4 Stars
    • Direction:  S,SSW & SW
    • Tide:  All Tides
    • Wave Size:  4-6″++

The area of Mizata is a bit of a hike but definitely the go to spot when the surf is in the 2-3’ range. This area has a good right hander outside the Rivermouth, Beach Breaks and a Slab for the Loco Surfers…

    TESTIMONIALS

    "My surf trip to El Salvador with AST Surf Hotel"

    "Was cautious about going to El Salvador in the fist place, so I checked with many surfing friends about the best place to stay and everything else I could think of. After hearing about the AST surf camp from everyone I asked, we finally decided to do it. I had spoken to Dave the owner and arranged to have us picked up at the airport and taken to the camp. Man, nothing like smiling faces when we arrived and I already felt at peace. When we go to the hotel it was even more beautiful than in the photo's and overlooked the amazing right point break just down below. The food was amazing and the hotel was really first class all the way. Fresh towels, great air conditioning and kind and considerate people working there and oh ya, epic waves. Trip of a lifetime and we will for sure be going back for many more years to come. Thanks AST for such a great experience. A+++"

    "Fun Times Surfing In El Salvador"

    "I’m a travel agent in the San Francisco Bay Area. I was touring El Salvador on a mission to find new destinations to send my clients. I always knew Punta Roca in La libertad is a great place for surfers but I had no idea where to send my clients and have a peace of mind. After talking to some people, I heard of AST Surf Hotel in La Libertad. I spent two nights there and I had a great time. The Hotel was very comfortable and clean, I was able to hear the waves crashing just laying on my hammock. My room was just a few steps from the beach where I learned how to surfed in 85 degrees water in the beautiful Pacific Ocean. The food, the ambiance, and the service was great! Yes, I will recommend AST Surf Hotel La Terraza to my clients. California"

    Marcus Fender

    "La Roca Front & Center"

    "The AST accommodations at La Libertad are EXCEPTIONAL, if you want to be front and center to the best waves in Western El Salvador - this place can not be beat. Rooms are really nice, restaurant is not only really well done, the staff are EXCELLENT!!! I go every year, and even though I have friends who would be more than happy to have me stay with them; I book with AST, 'cause I can beat my local friends to the best waves, and have much nicer accommodations with AST."
