Surfing early March

« on: November 30 2005 15:11:00 »

I am currently planning my spring break trip, but I am a fairly new surfer (I have experience but not much travel) and am planning this trip around surfing spots.  Where is good this time of year (early march)?  I would rather go to FL or Mexico, but is the surf the best on the east coast of FL or in the Gulf?  and same for Mexico- on the Gulf, or the west coast?

I was thinking something like FtLauderdale/Miami, Acapulco or Cancun- somewhere big so it'll be cheap.  I'm willing to consider South Carolina, Texas or even Cali.  Let me know if anyone has any ideas.  Thanks in advance!

the gulf can get good but it is to inconsistent to plan a trip there. Your best bet for waves in march out of the places you mentioned is the pacific coast of mexico. Acapulco has lots of crime but Ixtapa, Manzanillo, puerto vallarta all have lots of waves near and nice warm water.

you obviously aren't a surfer in Texas.... I have been fortunate enough to learn how to surf in Texas and travel the world refining my skills. Kelly Slater grew up surfing wind chop and attributes his ability to surf any conditions to this. Texas is a great place to learn and come hurricane season, you will find me in the water surfing 10+ foot storm surf!

On no, Tom again under another 1000 aliasses- suggestion: use the hemhorroid cream orally and quit posting anae info. on the Gulf; because of the 'dead' (anoxic) zone due to oil refineries sludge killing the ecosystem and perpetually increasing (onshore) winds from global warming, only seasonal hurricane might provide reliable swell. Guess the rednecks will have to depend on passes and freighter originated waves when not running over armadillos.
