David from Las Palmeras Surf Camp just can’t let the super beetle go. Still makes it’s way all the way down to some of the most difficult to access points. This day was light north winds and firing. Let’s go…
David and Karla from Las Palmeras Surf Camp just sent through these photos of the construction project on the beach. It is going to be amazing to be right on the water in between Punta Chivo and Punta Conejo. If all goes well they should be open for the 2016 season on the beach.
This is a good example of why surf trips can never be predicted. I bought a ticket to go down to Las Palmeras Surf Camp towards the middle of October, and ended up cancelling my ticket due to predicted bad winds. A couple of clients were troopers and headed down even with the predicted North winds and scored a super rare spot that turned on with full tube rides across a random headland. We went the following week with good winds and swell, but this spot was done. Sand had changed, bar was gone. Sometimes you got to just go with the flow. Mother nature always wins.
Last Blast Take 2: Another Window of Opportunity
The Salina Cruz forecast looks good again – David and Karla were planning on closing the camp down but will stay open if anyone is interested in heading down to Salina Cruz last minute for a Surgical Strike.
I just got back last night and we got good waves at the points. Not huge but really good shape. The wind turned on us Sunday, but is going back to offshore starting Tomorrow with medium sized swell in the forecast. Tides are good, lows in mornings and evenings with really good sand.
If you are interested let me know and I can help get you down there for a last Mexico mission.
Chris Burkard just sent me a bunch of photos of Salina Cruz and Las Palmeras Surf Camp from a last year. Can’t wait to get back down there!
Our good buddy Todd Thorton just took his kids down to Las Palmeras Surf Camp and reported a wonderful time via this email:
“David, Karla and Josh –
I want to extend my thanks for helping me make this happen. As i have said before i wanted my children to experience the best of Mexico culture and get some surfing in too. The hospitality was superb with excellent cuisine prepared with love. We truly felt at home with you guys. Oliver and Armando are very professional and really helpful with everything.
Thank you is not enough! My door is always open to you here in California if you decide to make the trip.
Love getting emails like this… Thanks Todd!
A couple of friends from home just recently got back from Las Palmeras Surf Camp and scored pretty hard. Can’t wait to get back down there in July. Coming up soon! Let’s go…
