What’s the secret to making Punta Mita one of the world’s favorite surf destinations? Well — we actually have a few! First, the area has surf breaks that hit during differing weather and tide conditions, which means surfers are able to catch waves basically all year round. Second, the naturally-blessed geography surrounding the Punta Mita peninsula offers a variety of breaks: from shore breaks with gentle waves to reef breaks with larger and faster rides — as well as several of the longest and least crowded point breaks in Mexico. Third, the diversity of the types of breaks means there is something for every experience level, style, or expertise — from beginner to experienced surfers, short-boarders, long-boarders, paddle-boarders, body-boarders, and even kitesurfers!
