Currently in Manta ' just after being in Ireland!
The surf is still good in May in Manta Yes, there are boards in Manta. The main contact is Roberto ask any surfer on the beach - they all know him! He will give you the low down.
Manta is a good choice for May as the waves are still running. Late June it goes flat for a couple of months.
It has the only Spanish school on the Coast and its a good school so it also your ONLY choice to combine surfing and Spanish!
The surf is right in town, so no need to lug a board around! Roberto is also really good to catch a ride with in his pick up!!
Manta is NOT a gringo hang out. To become immersed and to really see the real Ecuador it is great. Montanita IS a gringo hangout but also has great surf!
Hope that I have helped

There is a very good language school in Manta providing the Surfing and Spanish program, Academia Surpacifico. I studied 8 weeks with them, amazing learning experience, i discovered my passion for surfing and improved my Spanish skills. Good luck!!

Ecuador is the place to be for surfing in april!
I was in the Manabi area in between Manta and San Lorenzo one month ago and planning to go back shortly too. If anyone is looking for an awesome Surf Hideaway spot. Check out Hostel Mar de ensuenos. It's at the top of a hill, very secure and economical. The Food is awesome and the owners treat you like family. We met Surfers there from Puerto Rico, Australia, US and locals. My fiancee and I had the best dream vacation and our new surf friends couldn't get enough of the waves in San Lorenzo, they ended up staying three days longer than they planned. This is an awesome place to enjoy the great Ecuador Wet Season. We hope you all get to enjoy this place as much as we did! call them up at (593)5 2615 106 ask for Monica and Rocky!
