1st of Trip - Got off the plane at 5:20 am and in the water 2 hours later to some great surf. A great way to start off the trip and there were 10-15 guys out, but Sunzal holds a crowd really well with lots of peaks and even a little left.

longboarder wave - yeah, it is indeed a longboarder wave. quite flat and really slow, you have to bring a bigger board. on low tide it's a bit faster, but it needs a big swell to be good! some say it's world class, but i think that's overrated. locals are no problem here, never had any in el salvador for 4 weeks.

El Salvador for Sheezy - I recently returned from a month long trip to El Salvador. The waves were good and the people were nice. Surfing El Salvador can be summed up in one line..."Surfing is good in El Salvador if you like 'locals only' signs". peace
