The season starts in early December and begins to fall off in early April. The peak of summer can also produce a mini season during the months of June and July. There are some epic days during these months and the waves are usually cleaner due to more favorable weather conditions. While there can be some big days during these months, the summer season does not compare with the winter in terms of duration or consistency.
We do not like crowds so if you have the ability we will take you to rarely surfed breaks all over Bocas. We are the only ones to surf the world famous Silverbacks and are not scared of surfing the biggest waves that Bocas can produce.
