Summer is the stormy season in Sinaloa, which means huge well formed swells are rolling up on the beach pretty much on a daily basis.

    If you are on your Mexico vacation, staying on Mazatlan’s Golden zone, there is some decent Mazatlan surfing within walking distance. Check out the point break at “Punta (point) Camaron” next to Valentino’s disco castle between Playa Sabalos and Playa Marlin. The surf can get fairly large here; it’s not uncommon for there to be a 4-6 foot swell here with a left or right point break depending on where the swell is coming from.

    Playa norte…
    Small swells mostly, but rideable.

    Playa los pinos
    There is a point break between North Beach (Playa Norte) and Playa los Pinos beaches that offers some pretty good surfing, long rides if the surf is coming from the right direction. This point is along the boardwalk between the “Fisherman’s Monument and the lighthouse.

    Point Camaron
    Located at Valentino’s disco. Decent surf, pretty good shape.
