El Zonte - An Almost Perfect Right Point

El Zonte - An Almost Perfect Right PointEl Zonte, is a right hand pointbreak breaking over sand and rock bottom.

The long right point is fairly consistant. With the right conditions there are two lefthand peaks out north a bit from the river mouth. In El Salvador, a left is quite hard to come by.

El Zonte is more secluded than near by breaks so crowds are rarely a problem.The locals like Teco run the lineup. Sometimes groms on sponges can get in the way, but it's relatively empty.

Beware of water quality, as the point is right off a river mouth and can get gross post-rain.

The best times to visit are winter and summer.

Also, go to Horizonte Surf Camp, the last hotel on the left at the end of the road. It's owned by Panamanians Carol and Saboro. They've got a great poolside big screen to watch games or movies and they sell bottles of beer for $1 each. It's the ideal hangout in between sessions.
