Discription of surf spot: El Zonte, El Salvador

A long Righthand Point. Fairly consistant. on the right conditions there are two lefthand peaks aswell, which in El Salvador is quite hard to come by. El Zonte is more secluded than near by breaks so crowds are rarely a problem. theres an excellent hostel called Surfcamp Horizonte worth staying at, there are some sodas and shops in the village.
