Montañita has great waves all year round suitable for those who have never been on a board before right through to surfing pros. There is also a world famous surf break at “la Punta” (the Point).
Throughout the year there are surfing competitions, including big name, sponsored international contests where you can see pros do some amazing tricks while you enjoy the party atmosphere on the beach. The Ecuador surf team is currently ranked 10th in the world and at least half of team come from our home town so you will get to some crazy good surfing displays most days!
Better still is to have a go yourself! Lessons and board rental are available at various places in town but if you’re interested in some Spanish and surfing this can be organised through Montañita Spanish School.
In 2013 the ISA World Masters Surf Championship comes to Montanita!
