Surf near Puerto Lopez

I will be going to Language school in Puerto Lopez and want to surf.  Where is the closest surf?  Can I walk?  I have been surfing for many years and am not a begginer, and want to find some fun waves?  Any info would help!



RE: Surf near Puerto Lopez

YO buddy there iis plenty and i mean plenty of breaks around that area. Go to las tunas, probably the best break in the area, ayampe is the neighboring beach break which reminded me of hermosa beach. There is also by bus montanita which they say is theyre premier wave on coastal ecuador. The bus is 1.00 and its about a 30 minutes from actual puerto lopez. There is plenty of breaks and nice people to show you the ropes. I have been there 2 times and the galapagos once. I think the galapagos is your more surf indo expedition type wave which gets really good. Man i dont know just have fun and treat the locals with respect.  GO north if you can and south if its not breaking there, salinas playas etc......
peace   k-man
Let me know how it turns out !
