I am headed down to the Mazatlan area in August. Does anyone have any boat recommendations? Is there anyone in particular you have dealt with for arranging daily rides to the breaks?

Anyone know how the surf is around Christmas and if a boat trip in Mazatlan is a good idea around the holidays?

Boats are fun, but there is not really much of a reason to go surfing with the aid of a boat around Christmas time. There are usually only small to moderate south swells that mix with daily windswells that blow very strong from the north west of the Sea of Cortez. This makes for very consistent 3 to 4 foot surf every day, but no need whatsoever for a boat. Wait until the first big south swells start, in February or March.

In the winter there is a strong, predominant wind that blows down across the Sea of Cortez from the northwest. In the winter, Mazatlan gets some amazing, leftover windswells every morning with super-glassy conditions that mix with the small south swells making for great, fun surf every day. Then when spring comes, the windswells get even better and begin to mix with powerful south swells, creating dozens of great beach breaks, reefs etc, which allows all the surfers to spread out over about a hundred miles of Coastline. Most people don't have a clue that the Sea of Cortez is actually a wave machine. At the
you can see a perfect example by clicking on the surf school page.

You're right! We surfed the "Bruja" beach break all week.
Surfline called for anke to thigh high waves. But we were getting head high surf at the Bruja Beach. Good info!

Can anyone tell me how the surf usually is around Christmas? My kids were planning on taking some surfing lessons in Cancun but now we have to make other plans.
