Ecuador - solo female surfer

I am hoping to get to Ecuador in April, around Manta area, any ideas of what the waves will be like and the size, slightly concerned it could be a bit big for me. Also I have the blonde hair going on and wondered about my general safety, ie should I dye my hair black.

I'm also arriving in ecuador early April.  Maybe we can meet up and catch some waves.  Mid April I'm meeting some friends in Chicamas Peru.

Hi, I can't advise you about the surfing(went to montanita myself and it was fine for me then-a beginner), but for the hair: if you like you're blond hair, leave it that way... I tried to die it myself, a bit brownish-like colour, but they'll see anyway that you're not from ecuador. So be it! Good luck with it

Hi!, no definately not that big, the north swells did not were that big, we are hoping the souths will hit , call me or e mail me as soon as you hit the beach in Ecuador, I live in Salinas and on south of the bay and specially the Army base we get good waves almost all year round, bigest is around 6 feet, so do not wory. Manabi is more dangerous than Sta. Elena, but in general all area it is pretty save. Have a save trip.

Hey - I was in Ecuador for almost 3 months - a lot of it on the coast - I have red hair - and had absolutely no problems with safety - you draw some extra attention but its more admiring than anything  - the people were awesome - I'd worry more about dressing simple and not carrying your family's fortune on you... as far as the surf - I'm not sure how it is in April - but from what I understood there was generally a variety o f different spots along the coast that should have something to work for you - goodluck! I'm jealous - I can't wait to go back...

Thanks Jennifer!, really, so far I know it is one of the safest and easy going surfing places around.

Looking for surf spots in Ecuador ?
