Add a New Surf SpotRegional Overview
Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands offer contrasting surfing environments. The Galapagos are quiet, remote quite fickle and rocky whilst Ecuador can be party-mad and offers a multitude of accessible sandy beach barrels through to long points and reefs. They do however share the same exposure to both north and south swells; both will suffer decay before reaching their shores but what does arrive, as a consequence is of high quality, losing much of the short period associated with locally generated swells. November to march being the primary swell season. Ecuador's surfing is focused around the northern reaches of the country and the famous surf town of Atacames. Water temperatures between the Galapagos and Ecuador are also divergent (20-25ºC or 68-77ºF), the former being in the path of the Humboldt Current and a good few degrees cooler. Tradewinds blow from a southerly direction all year, swinging more easterly for the Galapagos and westerly for Ecuador, though mornings are typically offshore on the mainland.
