Surfing has become one of the most important sports in El Salvador, and no wonder the country has great potential to create perfect and consistent waves all year round. The difference to other countries, however, is the location of the surf spots and the expansive extent in the country, that is, many perfect waves very close together. In addition, easy access to the beaches and hotels, which have gradually developed over the past few years and now offer a better service.
Since surfing is becoming increasingly important in the sports world, the curiosity grows a little more to learn about how, where and why not? What is this sport, is it for everyone? May I try that? Well, we have asked these questions to several people here in El Salvador. Here is something about surfing here
The most popular place for surfing are Playa El Tunco and Playa El Zonte as well as Playa La Paz in the town of Puerto de La Libertad. Many local surfers offer surfing lessons and surfboard rental, but is it really so easy to find a teacher and "go surfing"? After some research, it soon becomes clear that there are special programs with international certifications for surfing instructors to teach the sport, which make it easier for surfers to learn and, above all, to be sure to be well informed. Unfortunately there are very few trainers in the country who are professionals in the field and have visited these savvy programs. But precisely this training makes the difference between learning in a short time, and in the attempt to learn to surf its time to waste and to endanger its physical security.
