How to surf Puerto Escondido

Off 1

Puerto Escondido is a laid-back coastal community located in Oaxaca, Mexico. It is the home of one of the heaviest and most dangerous waves in the world.

The town’s most famous surf spot is Playa Zicatela, a pounding and temperamental beach break capable of producing big, powerful, and bone-breaking tubular waves.

Surfers discovered Puerto Escondido and its beaches in the late 1950s, but it was the explosion of shortboard revolution in the 1970s that really opened the town to the surf world.
