Yupp !!!  The first night I went there I was at this bar, and I was dancing with this girl Linda Lue and her Hubby Walks in. I almost pead in my pants this guy was lean and mean and big and bad, and he was pointing his gun at me.  I said wait a minute Mister, I didn't even kiss her, Don't want know trouble with you.  Now if you could please put that gun away, and let me ask a fava from you.  I said Gimmie 3 steps, gimmie 3 steps , Gimmie 3 steps towards the door, Give me 3 steps gimmie 3 steps mister and you'l never see me no more.
   Next day in the lineip, I saw him paddling for a wave, and I snaked him because I knew he didn't have his gun.  Yes he did have his gun because he shot me in the back and I'm Parralizid from the knee caps down/

You don't have to worry about the surf being good in this area of the Mexican Coast.  I surf the area every spring. I did surf Baja a lot in the past but it is too barren. No shade and it got crowded. Mazatlan has way more breaks. More reefs to surf, more points, and a there is a classic superbank that get created during the rainy season. Surf the other rivermouths around Mazatlan and your trip will be made. Mazatlan is a good call for surf because the area gets the same surf as the rest of Mexico but there is so much more going on in the area. It is just a good place to have a beer, enjoy the food and the culture.  The surf scene is very laid back, but don't get fooled by the mellow locals. The surf gets big all the time. They're on it. Local surfers like Alister and Charras rip.

Any thoughts on brining my boards to Mazatlan?  I have a couple of boards I may bring, but I've heard it is pretty easy to just rent and the boards are decent, which would obviously make it easier to deal with than packing.
