Surfing in Ecuador

Good surfing is possible in Ecuador on the Pacific Coast, and also on the Galapagos on San Cristobal Island.

The coast gets swells from both north and south, so the direction of surf is variable. Winds are generally light. The most popular surfing base is Montañita which has become a laid back surfing centre with its long beach and turquoise seas. The town has many relaxed bars and restaurants, as well as parties on the beach, and there is an international surf competition in February at carnival time.
