The irregular coastline of  Ecuador offers points and beaches, reefs and rivermouths facing directly into the Pacific Ocean. Many of these spots are open to swell from northerly and southerly directions. 

 

The coast of Ecuador gets hit by all directions from which swells can be generated. The south coast faces south-west, the central coast faces west and the north coast faces northwest.

Given the curvature of the coastline, southern Ecuador has mainly right points and northern Ecuador mainly left points. In between, there is a great mix of beach breaks that offer miles of empty peaks.

 

The best surf time in Ecuador is from December until June. This is the time of the year when the weather is best, offering glassy/offshore winds in the mornings and good swells from the central and north Pacific. 

 

EC Surfer Team


The team has 4 members: Sebastian Florido (Surfer, Guide), Sergio Eastman (Surfer, Guide), Juan Gomez (Surfer, Guide) and the local chef.

 

A typical day on tour goes like this: Wake up early in the morning and have coffee + fruits, then go surfing with your surf guide on a 4x4 truck. On the first session, the guide will take you to the best available spot depending on conditions and your level. After the morning session, come back to the house for a complete lunch, rest for an hour or so. You can also watch the footage form the session, skate on the bowl or visit any touristic spot along the coastline. In the afternoon, you will go for the second surf session (usually finishes with a couple of beers). In the evening. you will have dinner (usually BBQ), review the day's footage and have a good sleep for the next day's session.

 

If you want to go for a party to town (Montañita), they can take you there and organize a taxi to get back.

Simón Doe (Australia) 

My stay with EC Surfer was AMAZING! It was my first time to Ecuador and coming from Australia I didn’t know much Spanish or where to find waves. Sebastian really looked after me from the moment I hoped off the plane to the moment I hoped back on. He drove me to surf spots I would have never found by myself, through beautiful countryside and coastal roads, we got pumping uncrowded waves! After every surf Sebastian took me to try different local cuisines and local tasty gems!

Lachlan

I have travelled to Ecuador twice from Australia, both times having stayed with EC Surfer. On each trip, they have hosted me and taken me to the best waves in Ecuador, often waking up well before dawn and driving along deserted beaches to make the most of early morning conditions. Thanks for all your help, Sebastian! I'm looking forward to coming back.
