The Paredon Surf Camp
We work with the founders of the camp to
bring you the best in Surfing in Guatemala.
Basically we have beach breaks and sandbars
and the height of the waves vary in a range between 3-12 feet
depending on the swells.
Our biggest waves can be surfed during our rainy season, between
June and October, although the sandbars are constantly moving
(due to the power and speed of the waves themselves), which
makes them a bit technical. Between the months of December
and April (although the average height is 5-6 feet) the sandbars
are quite stable, offering the cleanest sessions.
Our waves can be catalogued as Fun Waves, but for
Guatemala our spot can be catalogued as Regional Classic.
During the mornings we normally have offshore winds, which
turns the ocean glassy and creates nice and constant hollow
left and right breaks. Around 11:00 a.m. the wind changes
and blows south, which diminishes the quality of the wave,
sometimes surfable, sometimes not. Most days at
around 4 pm the wind slows down a bit and we have good conditions
the rest of the afternoon. There is also a river mouth
at some 600 meters from our camp.
Some surfers have reported stingrays, marine turtles, and
dolphins, among many other species while surfing. It is quite
common to see Pelicans "surfing" over the waves'
lips early in the mornings and during late afternoons.
