Mazatlan Superbank

I heard there are a lot of incredible rivermouths around Mazatlan and one of them is called the "Superbank." Can anyone tell me how I can find it?

The rivermouth you want to check out is located between Mazatlan and San Blass.  Talk to the local surfers like Javier or Alister.  They will probably show you or leave you for dead.
No just kidding! Their good guys.  You can find them in front of Joe's Oyster Bar.  Just go to the banner that says Victoria Beach Club and ask for Javier.

The rivermouths here get really good when the rainy season kicks in.  They work until the end of october.  If you surf the area in the spring you will get good reef waves and long point surf. Mostly lefts.

In the winter the rivermouths are not as good as the summber but after October, there is a strong, predominant wind that blows down across the Sea of Cortez from the northwest during the days. Mazatlan then gets really nice leftover surf the next mornings with super-glassy conditions that mix with small south swells, so it is never flat!! When spring comes, the windswells get even better and begin to mix with powerful south swell surf, creating dozens of great beach breaks, and the reefs and points start going off. Most people don't have a clue that the Sea of Cortez is actually a really good surf machine. At the  webpage,

you can get a good impression of what the winter windswells look like in Mazatlan by clicking to their surf school page.
