Soul surfing Ireland....Colombia - Where I surf its so cold your head hurts and the suits are 5:4 mm - I meet my friends who are farmers, carpenters, writers, marine biologists in the water (none of whom wear surf-brand clothing - wooly jumpers more like) and we socialise in the rain / and depend on each other too. We have green mountains in the background and rainbows and dolpins.....and no travelling surf trash with their competitiveness and aggressiveness.

ColOmbians and ColOmibianas...I hope to share your waves with you soon and any information you could give me about your Pacific coast would be greatly appreciated. I would love to surf in ColOmbia this winter.

choco - Just got back from Choco. Took ferry-Buena Venturea(hole),24hs+ no bed, no freeboard(100mil). Stayed "Nativos" El Valle, Rosa good cook(15 mil-night). High tide beaches, gets plenty swell, but b grade. Got burgled in Nuqui from hotel (i think owners son). Had to leave. Advice: Beg, borrow or steal boat go to sw side of Cabo Corrientes, camp out.

Where to Surf - Go to Nuqui, Dept. del Choco - The Pacific side would be your best bet. Contact El Cantil lodge outside of Nuqui. Memo Gomez runs the place and knows all of the spots. Colombians are very friendly and loving people until you do them wrong and then you get the Colombian necktie. Let us know how it goes.

Are there Waves? - Hay Olas? - Apparently, waves do make it to Colombia's Pacific Coast. See below. This is an e-mail exchange I had with a surf forecaster from California.

Question: I can’t find my e-mail on this, but about a year ago I asked what you thought the wave potential was for Nuqui, Colombia (Departamento del Choco) and I think you said okay but not great. How about Cabo Corrientes (see attached map)? I ask because a local surfer has been telling me that it gets really good waves with some size too. He says you have to take a 45 minute boat ride which I think is to Cabo Corrientes. I ask since Colombia sits behind the “bulge” of the west coast of South America and wasn’t sure if the storms off of Chile or other south swell generating areas would be reaching it (i.e., wave shadow). Before heading down there, I wanted to get some expert opinion on what the swell potential would be during August. Any information would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Good Question!
I did some comparative analysis and it looks like the southern cutoff is about at 212 degrees, which actually provides a pretty good window covering a large portion of the Southwest and South Central Pacific. The Southeast Pacific is totally shadowed from Cabo Corrientes but the entire storm corridor under New Zealand south to the Ross Ice Shelf looks open as well as a pretty good stretch of ocean under Tahiti. Take a look as the link below and shift the enire series of paths over towards Colombia. Doing that it looks like any storm passing through the area north of the 212 degree line with winds aimed parallel to that path will push into the point you are interested in. Sounds like a fun trip. Now all we need is some storms. It's been real quiet down south lately. But I bet by August (later rather than earlier) things will again start becoming productive there.

Okay brothers, now its time to check it out. Later.
