Surfing School and Equipment - Bocas Del Toro
Learn To Surf in Panama
If you want to go surfing in Panama, Bocas del Toro is an excellent choice.
Due to its wide range of easily accessible great surfing spots for all levels of experience, Bocas del Toro is a carefully guarded secret.
Best time to surf is from November to April, with another peak in summer. In the area, the waves are usually fast breaking and left sided. Swell from the right direction forms hollow tubes at many surf spots around the islands.
There are two excellent beginner spots to start your surf experience.
You will find a gently, long wave just in front of Carenero Island. Together with your surf instructor you will have all the time in the world to fully enjoy your first long ride on a surfboard, the beautiful reef right underneath you.
On Wizard Beach, Bastimentos Island you will find perfect conditions to learn surfing right next to the beach.
Of course these two spots are not only great for beginners, many local and international surfers spend hours take pleasure in riding the tranquil waves during shorter swell conditions.
Let the positive island vibes carry you away and explore what kind of surf options Bocas del Toro has in store for you!
