15 yr old to surf in puerto

« on: May 22 2014 06:05:00 »

I'm a mom sending my 15 yr old son to learn to surf in Puerto Escondido in June. What's the vibe there, is it safe?

Pretty heavy surf there in that time of the year. Puerto Vallarta region is more suitable for a beginner

Don't send your son to learn there! Better to send him to Hawaii  Oahu  is I great place to learn, in Waikiki  the beach boys give surfing lessons great guys! I have been to puerto the surf can jump from 6ft. To 18ft. And the current and shore break are very dangerous there have been  guys from the states that live there and have died there surfing ! The is a spot southern end of playa Zicatela that is mellow but as far for first time no way!

I would try Troncones in Mexico. It has 7 different breaks all within 1 hour and a it has a great hostel for your son to stay.

June in Puerto escondido is heavy for a 15 year old.
