Surf spot for beginner and near-beginner in Chiapas/Oaxaca

Looking for a place to surf, with mellow waves and in a mellow town. We're in Tapachula now, and heading up the coast towards Puerto Arista. Also, we need to rent boards. Any suggestions? Anything would help . . . thanks.

Did you get any good advice?  Did you find a good spot for beginners?  I need the same information.
Gracias,
Eric

Go and check Punta Conejo which is near Salina Cruz. Great longboard wave however, needs a solid south swell to turn on which is really only reliable during rainy season or summer. Your best bet is to hit the peaks of playa ventosa which works better on smaller southwest swells. Good luck.

Ironically, just the other side of town from the board-breaking carnage of Mexi-Pipe in Puerto Escondido, is a very low key, learn type wave. So if you're in town, ask about or jump in a taxi and you'll find your way.
Checkout www.coastroadproject.com for more surf-travel specific info from Mexico and around the world, plus tons of photos, videos and more.
Good luck.
