Surf in Escollera - There is a local surfing association that belong to the National Surfing association, there are many members actually from tampico, the best consistent season is in fall and Winter, when the ‘Nortes’ North Cold Wind came down, commonly is necessary to wait one day after the wind hit the are, in order to see nice rideable waves, and also sometimes is necessary to use wetsuit, the other season is at the end of spring or during spring break, with many South wind influence, the wave is good but faster. There are several days per year that you can rid a wave easily more than 150 yards, right side, is my favorite, there are two Surf shop in town where you can rent or buy a board, or lease a surf trip. Locals are friendly, just respect them and you will find yourself into a nice friendly ambience.
