Colombia

Lots of breaks to surf and plenty more to be discovered! The best season is the dry season from Dic-March and during the hurricane season(wet season) from July- Sept when a lot of low pressure systems form right off the coast. During

the dry season is more consistent and in the wet season conditions are better. Very uncrowded area and surfer are very friendly and respectful except for the occasional "garuya" that drops in your way. The swells don't get too big. They barely pass the 8' range on the biggest days but and occassional bigger "Mar de leva" is not out of the question. On average you will find chest to a couple feet overhead surf. But like I said it is very consistent and powerful. During "El NIño" and "La Niña" years we had a very active season and the waves seemed to never end. But the last couple of years is been quiet than average.

Seasonal swell & wind variations:

Most of the swell we get comes from the N and NE direction. But if we get any from the NW or W direction means big swell and good conditions somehow.

board rentals and surf camp - I am just leaving Santa Marta after staying in Casa Grande for the weekend. Rented a board and stayed for the weekend. The place was relaxed and really friendly. Here is the link if you want to check it out yourself www.costenosurf.com

Re-located to cartagena - Hola,

Jusat re-located to Cartagena for work. Spent the last week frothing because the wave set-up in front of my hotel, The Hilton was working. the right was winding around and looked great. And guess what! I DIDN'T HAVE MY STICKS!!!!!! Okay. I am looking for a nice longboard and/or surf contacts here. Gracias

Board hire on the Coast - If you're in the Barranquilla area, good luck. I think the hotel/bar at El Bolsillo has 1 (one) board for rent, but it's just a beat-to-hell old Bic. There is one "surf shop" in BAQ, which has only one or two boards, and I don't think they rent those out.In Cartagena there is a new surf shop, but I'm afraid I don't know what they're carrying, though i have a feeling it's just apparel and the like.Good luck!
