surfing around Playa Santana

« on: February 12 2010 08:02:00 »

I will be staying at the buenas ondas resort in Playa Santana from April 2nd to April 10th .  I'm just wondering what the area is like, how crowded the lineups are, etc.  Any information would be greatly appreciated.  And if there is anyone out there who is going to be in the area, let me know.  Cheers!

Hi, I have a house on Playa Santana in the Rancho Santana community. The Santana break is not very crowded. There are two peaks. There are usually 5 to 7 guys out at each peak on a busy day. Some days there are only zero to 3 guys out. It's a high-tide break so you will want to catch some sessions elsewhere on the off-tide. There are a number of breaks in the area. It's off-shore winds about 350 days of the year. You will have a great time.

It's crowded . . . way more than 5-7 guys per peak when it's working. It's fun despite the crowd,  just don't go there thinking it will be uncrowded.

Make that two votes for crowded.   The Santana beach break is open to the all.  It does spread out but there are is almost always more than 5-7 people out.  Rosada is point break so after a few people get out there it can be tight.    Between the houses, the casitas, and the surf camps you get quite a few people in the water, especially in the spring and summer.
