The 200 + km of coastline stretching between Salina Cruz and Huatulco in the state of Oaxaca in Mexico is one of the last great surf frontiers in Mexico. This stretch of coastline receives some of the most consistent swell in the world with 1 of the largest swell windows, picking up powerful southern hemisphere generated swells. This area is dominated by right-hand, sand bottom point breaks and jetty breaks, and some rocky reefs, very few lefts are found here as this is the land of right-hand point breaks.

The region is broken up into 2 specific areas, Northern Oaxaca and Southern Oaxaca.

The Northern area is more tropical from around Huatulco up towards Puerto Escondido. The surf breaks in this area typically feature morning off shores switching to afternoon sea breezes with the occasional evening glass off and year-round good surfing conditions and many of the point breaks offer good wind protection in the afternoons and so therefore don't blow out like the more exposed spots often do in the late afternoon.

The most consistent season is from March - November when waves average 3-5 feet with bigger days in the 8-10 foot range. Rainy season runs from May - October but most days begin sunny with late afternoon thunderstorms. The winter season from November to March conditions are typically smaller but still fun. Conditions during this time are very dry and stiff morning off shores are the norm. Water temps range from 85 degrees March to November and about 75 degrees May - October and generally wetsuits are not needed but maybe a good lycra for breezy winter mornings.

The Southern area is much more arid and dry and begin halfway between Huatulco and Salina Cruz. This area has strong, dominant N to NE wind condition caused by the high pressure gradient between the Gulf of Mexico to the North and the Pacific Ocean to the south. For much of the year between October and April these winds will blow in excess of 30-40 knots and can easily blow out the surf. During the wet season between May and September, the wind diminish down to around 10-15 knots, and the wind direction is variable with offshore in the morning and then after it rains, the winds will sometimes die off altogether and cause glassy conditions again. There are between 12-16 different surf breaks in this region, most of them remote and uncrowded with no more than 2-4 guy's surfing on any given day and a good vehicle and knowledgeable guide are a necessity to access the better hidden gems.
