HOW TO GET THERE
Fly into Panama City and you will be met at the airport and taken to the isla by bus and then a bus.
Reef, sandbar and beach breaks. We are up to 10 breaks at this time within a short distance of the camp. More discoveries are being made all the time. Some break best on high tide, some on low tide. Here’s a description of each:
In front of camp left point break, often described as playful. When there’s a good swell, getting double barreled on the same wave is possible. With a swell, wave is generally, head high to two feet overhead. Surfed at medium tides.
The Point, left point break about ˝ mile from camp. Generally breaks, 3-4 foot bigger than previously break. Fast and hollow and easy to get barreled on. On a big swell, has been compared to a Pipeline type wave. Quite often I have heard people say, "That was the best wave of my life!". Best surfed at medium tides.
Sand bar break, south of big island. A 400 yard ride on the sand bar. This wave breaks both left and right. Has been described as the perfect wave you draw on your notebook in high school that just keeps going and going. Not a fast wave, but a long, long playful wave. Surfed at low tide only.
Bouncing wave break for sometime different. On the big island and goes left. Best described a Newport Beach Wedge Wave. Swell bounces off a large volcanic rock formation and then connects with the next incoming wave to double up.Surfed at medium tides.
Inside small island break. Goes right and is an island wrapper. Best on low tide and needs a large swell to surf. Nice barrel here.Four breaks are on outside island. One is a big wave left reef break, next is a smaller, but very fun left reef break, the other a right break reef pass and the last is a island wrapper going right. Only to be surfed at medium to high tide. With a good swell, can produce double to triple overhead condition. Average swell, generally produces 2-4 ft overhead conditions. When swell is right, has been described as a "G-Land style wave". We’ve seen surfers get standup barrels at these breaks with spitting tubes.
We also have a two mile long sandy beach breach that is good for beginner surfers and for warming up
