get the right attitude - with the attitude that some of you portray....go ahead and go to colombia, chances are you will get decapataded and get thrown off a cliff...colombia is one of the most gorgeous and mysterious countries on the face of the planet. It does have world class waves on the pacific side, which most are unexplored and will stay that way. The caribbean side also has excellent surf ive seen the surf ive been there numerous times on vacation, my mother is colombian. Get the right attitude and youll be okay, but if you guy continue with your childish ways, forget about colombia---its off with your head. Anyways its more swell for me when i break out my board and hit the tropical, soothing, gringo-free country with WAVES and COLOMBIANAS----vive las colombianas!!!!
Stop Talking and Go Surf Colombia - I read most of the posts from 2002 to present and laughed at some of the negativity coming out on both sides (i.e., colombiano vs. gringos gringos vs. gringos, etc.). Look, we all want to get some unspoiled waves with few if any crowds. So, go to Colombia. From what I've read (in Spanish and English), the local guys are saying "hey, come down and surf with us, but be cool." Who would reject that? As far as safety is concerned, Colombia has problem areas, but the entire country is NOT overun with FARC, etc. Bottom line: Go and explore if your gut tells you to. Otherwise, skip Colombia for now and surf it with the crowds later...Gracias a todos los colombianos por habernos dado informacion sobre sus playas y olas lindisimas y la bienvenida a gozarlas con Uds. Uds. siempre estan bienvenidos a mi casa aqui en Los Angeles, California. Si desean realizar un viaje, escribame en: email@example.com. Ciao
Surfing en Colombia - Soy colombiano-americano (mi papa es paisa y mi mama es gringa) y quierro realizar un viaje a colombia este ano con mi esposa (la mas linda guatemalteca que hay). Si tengo entendido bien, las mejores olas del pacifico estan en Nuqui. Es esto cierto? Me encantaria recibir informacion y fotos si seria posible a: firstname.lastname@example.org. Vivo en Los Angeles, California. Si quierren realizar un viaje aqui, escribame. Vivo cerca de la playa. Muchas gracias y viva colombia, es la beraquerra!!!
- in colombia there are waves but we don t want gringos to come, so drugbuster yu are right don t even come here cause we will take yu to spend sometime in the mountain and yu will regret your wordsfuck the states, no gringos in our country i must said there are some exemptions... but very few.
Message to Christo - That season you can go to every surf spot in the caribean coast: San andres (Left), Tayrona and around, Prado mar (Barranquilla). In the Pacific side you must choose a spot looking to North....Like El Cantil at nuquí. i have an litle Eco-lodge there (7 rooms). Other seasons are very diferent. If you read spanish I can recomend to you some web sites. Just tell me.Memo Gómez
Specific surf spots - HolaI am 23 from Australia and i am comin to Colombia, to check things out and wanna surf there. I have read some comments on where to surf but would like more details on where these waves are. I am goin to be there from late Jan through to Feb and March.If any generous people out there who would like to share some info that would be great.Ciao
coast as seen from the air - Once I had one of those experience's that imprints permantely in your mind.I flew over the Columbian coast on my way to Ecuador once and saw perfect 20 foot swells peeling flawlessly off long points, rivermouths and beach breaks. The breeze looked offshore and there was an island off the coast with wave peeling the entire length and even wraping around the south end a long ways. The island must have been at least 5 miles long. You can imagine what a ride that would be. Anyone interested in forming a long duration surf expedition there?
FACT - Check the buoys and see for yourself. As I type the Pacific coast is getting 5' to 10' swell at 16 Seconds. Which means the waves are breaking anywhere from 6' to almost 15' faces at the premier breaks. But please do not come here you might drown!
TO "drugbuster" - Very interesting atittude!...I bet you have never even travel otuside the United States!...If so it seems like you are not a respectufull traveler. If you ever grow the balls to go to Colombia and do some "searching" I will bet you will eat up your words and not with your dirty little mouth! Grow some balls and show some respect. Or else ask to anyone that has visited Colombia. Two coastlines definetly give you something to wait for all year round. Jose Gonzalez.
CO surf sucks - to all gringos- don't waste your time coming to Colombia, there are no "world class waves" here, you'll be very dissapointed, and more violence and drugs than you will ever imagine. Better off hitting Brazil Chile Peru Argentina and Uruguay, where there ARE world class waves without the drugs and violence. to eurotrash who come here for the cheap coke, and all critical of the states, do what you like...
