Atmosphere

calm, friendly locals, really good food, a lot of mosquitos, but in good conditions it worth it
is hot in summer, very hot and some rain too, in december there is a nice weather but small waves. water cold in spring cause the
current of north but in general you only need a trunk and sunblock.

Mathchan Bay, Mexico - Does any one remember the old man that lived in the tree house on the point at Mathnchan Bay in San Blas Mexico?

By Migosurf , 24-11-2015

San Blas 1969-1976 - The first time to San Blas from Corpus was in 1969 was in a 1950 Chev turquoise panel van that i traded a new board for, with 5 guys. Many trips after that and always got some waves, thought not all good. We have some old super 8mm film. Became great friends with Lalo and Nacho. Lalo came to see me in Port Isabel 1974 surf meet. The river boat ride we got some film of that. I have scars from the worlds biggest mosquito lol. Wonderful memories. I will I had email address for Lalo and/or Nacho. If anyone does please send to me. They use to call me Marciano lol.. Thanks Migo
