Drive north of Ixtapa for about 40 miles then you'll see a turnoff for Troncones, then you'll go down a long bumpy road and you'll see a sign for the Playa Kandahar Surf Club.

This spot is very good for bodyboarders and shortboarders. The wave is very clean and can get pretty big.
You can park anywhere along the beach! Simply find a peak as there are lots to choose from! Heavy beachbreak wave when it's big! Bring a good board but be careful not to break it!
This spot is very relaxed, there's usually not many people out and the people at the surf club are friendly.
A heavy beachbreak wave when it's big! A laid back atmosphere with few crowds! This area has great surf potential. Drive a little north and you will find more great spots!
Great spot for beginners in the low season, very good all around.

Big, fast, heavy/thumpy barrels - Doesn't show it on the map but this spot is the beaches just south of Troncones point. I thought it was way more of a bodyboard wave than surfboard. The A-frame peaks look great and from the road, but they're actually a lot faster breaking and pound super hard on the sandbars. It's Pretty dangerous, especially if you're not used to this kind of speed and power...have you're paddle on before you get there. DO NOT eat the food in town...you will die for a couple of days.

Troncones - I just got back from Troncones. We scored good head high waves. The last 2 days we surfed out front of Mi Casa Su Cas. I posted some tube pictures. Thanks to Osman and the crew at Mi Casa Su Casa.
