Tulum surf

« on: November 07 2006 12:11:00 »

I wanna go to Tulum this december but I can't find anything about waves there. Is there surf? I heard there is in Cancun, but what about Tulum, a little more south or just around there. Any waves?

i don't think so. the long reef prevents waves from getting large enough to surf. i've been from cancun down to punta allen and have never seen a large wave although my trips have been in Feb. try cozumel, the island east of playa del carmen, 45 min north of tullum. it is very popular with windsufers and i hear they get winter waves. ask on a windsurf forum.

Did you find any surf in Tulum? I'm going there this January, and hoping to surf somewhere along the Yucatan...

war da, ab und zu haste an der riviera maya ganz passable wellen, aber es ist jetzt nicht in dem sinne ein richtig geiler spot....wieviel zeit haste denn?
wenn du paar wochen in mexico bist, dann nimm dir die zeit nen trip ├╝ber palenque nach puerto escondido zu fahren!
Einer der besten beachbreaks der Welt!
aber manchmal mit bis zu 15ft bisschen heftig..

I was in Tulum a few weeks ago and will be back next week.  There is surf potential, though poor quality given the short-period nature of the surf that hits that coast.

Surely the barrier reef, a 20-min paddle from shore, must have some decent waves wherever there are passes or irregularities.  

Also, I did see a small right peeling along the Tulum beach strip, at a spot where there's a break in the reef and swell gets through.

If I see anything on this next trip I'll post.

Theres is a snokeling place called Xel-Ha on the Yucatan Peninsula.  a fresh water lake flows into the ocean like a rivermouth.  waves there were about 4 ft when i was there a couple years ago, if you don't mind barracudas and jagged rocks this might be for you.
