yes in pto la cruz you got a few good spots, but if you really want to get a good surf trip and vacation, take the ferry to margarita wich cost a few dollars like 20 or 30, and you get the best beaches of this country there.

Im going to be visiting my girlfriend in caracas. From there I am staying at her house on margarita in porlamar. I want to know If it would be better to bring my board or just buy one there. My girlfriend says to buy there but, Im scared that It might be a mistake not to bring one of my customs.Or bring the wrong type since I have never been there and dont know what to expect.Any advise would be great. Thanks

You could bring your own surfboards for 50$ a piece, or you could buy one here for a price around $300. There are good shapers in Venezuela, and they know the business of shaping custom boards for the venezuelan wave.
If you'd still prefer to bring your personal's, i strongly recomend any board not over 6'2'. You won't find any big or scary barrels in Venezuela; still, in January you sure could have lots an lots of fun, since is by far the best surfing season in the whole country.
See ya around,

Thanks, I talked to some surf shops today and One guy said he only had Chanel Island boards inported and selling them for around 650. So I have decided to Have a local shaper shape me a board. Im a big guy so on Short boards and small waves I like to ride a 6 '10 and somthing with a little thickness. Again Im a big guy. ( can someone give me the number to some Shaper with a good reputation )
