Has anyone ever surfed off of Punta de Mita?

I did a Mexico trip with 3 other NON-surfers. It took forever to talk them to go with me to Sayulita. We traveled by bus, so it was rather a pain to go from break to break. What I saw of Punta de Mita was GOOD. Way better than Sayulita, depending on your skill level. If you're going to be in PV, I'd recommend it.

Punta Mita has some good surf.  Salyulita can also get some good surf but you have to compete with a lot of long boarders who catch the waves 50 yards out before they begin to break! I have caught Burrows head high on a few occasions  and have had a lot of fun there!  You can get a surf report for PV and surrounding areas at

Surfed de Mita 30+ years ago!
great wave and other than a few sharks and some cuts
it was a great place.
Now i understand it is completely developed.
Anyway, your post brought back great memories.
de mita used to be pickup point for many large dope deals.

There is two things you need to get this area good.

1. a very large swell. 2. a boat. The effort and luck required to get the area around P.V. good makes it simply the most OVERRATED surfing zone in mexico. The locals may try to tell you different, but it's the truth. We run our huge boat through this zone a couple of times a year when large WNW swells are coming. You can see some amazing waves and where to get it for PV at surfpv com.

We're making a family trip to Neuvo Vallarta later this month. All this info has helped a lot. Does anyone know about the availability of renting boards in the area? We're hoping not to have to take ours.

this is a really big area. there are tons of places to rent boards, you just have to look for them or ask around. each area has places to rent from. it all depends on where you want to go around PV.
