Need good location for beginner surfers in Oct« on: July 16 2008 13:07:00 »
A few of us are heading to Mexico but are open to which region to go to. We just want to find a good region that offers some good surfing for beginners to learn.
Also, do you know of any good surfing schools or camps?

You know, playa zicatela in puerto escondido is perfect for beginners, one of the best beginner coves in the world.. aside from say Paia in Maui in the spring or summer... :)

Mark, dude really, you trying to get this girl and her friends killed??? Do you really want beginners out in the lineup in your way? You must be a kook

We do want happy kooks in the lineup.... but not at Zicatela. That (and Pascuales) are the two places you DO NOT want to learn. It is a really heavy wave.
If you can get to Saladita, just north of Ixtapa, I would go there. It is an easy breaking point that is great to learn on even when it picks up size. There isnt much for surf schools there though, but somewhere to camp and rent. Chicahua is a paradise north of escondido, it is a mission to get there, nowhere to rent, but a great wave and a great place.
Salulyta, not to be confused with the above mentioned, is a decent wave with lots of tourists/surf schools around. It might be a good option if you arent bothered with crowds and would like to party a bit. It is easy to find a place to stay and people to chill with.

OOOOOPPS, I meant to say we DO want happy kooks in the lineup!
Have a great time learning to surf! The best surfer is the one having the most fun, remember that and you will be always smiling in the line up. Learn about positioning and not dropping in too, so everyone can have fun if they want =)

I'm planning on heading to Mexico in October too. I'm just learning too, and am flying solo. Have you found out any more information on good places to start, etc.... I'm a little late in the game planning my trip.
