You don't have to worry about the surf. 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 are like four superbanks that get groomed during the rainy season. Surf these rivermouths and your surf trip will be made.
Just go to surfmazatlan.com, or learntosurf.info
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. Guys like Alister and Charras rip.

Water is somewhat cold during winter. Specially if you are used to 80 + degrees. Go to mazatlansurfcenter.com is right on the main street next to a dairy queen, cant miss it. This guys know the area perfectly, they are friendly and will show you every spot close to mazatlan. Ask for patoles, or km. 69... This spots have waves year round..

I'm going to be in Mazatlan either the first or second week in March. My board is an 8' gun.... would it be better to bring it down or rent one for the week? Not sure if I'll have a car if that factors in.

We have been to Maz in December...in the winter it was hard for us to find a good spot for the Northern swell. However, Playa Bruja works well for that. Now we are returning in June and are planning on focusing on Olas Altas and Cannons as we didnt get them last trip. But I do hear that there might be some great breaks just south of town. Of course, there's San Blas but I hear that it doesnt break that great anymore. Any chance anyone could steer us in the right direction? Or dispell some rumors? Thanks a ton, and if you havent been to Maz, you are missing more than you know. WONDERFUL surf, people, and the locals are awesome! We ran into the local champ and he was more than willing to share his beach and knowledge. AWESOME!

I surf a 9'2" Harbour Bannana that is a Bisect (Break down Board) airfaire is $150.00 just for the board. Is it worth bringing it or could I rent one? Is there any longboard breaks close to El Quijote Inn?
Any info would be appreciated.
