Galapagos Islands Surfing

The Galapagos is in an ideal geographical location to pick up the brunt of North Pacific ground swells which pound Hawaii but bypass Mexico and Central America due to their south-facing orientation.

As such, the Galapagos islands are on a short list of locations which really amplify and harvest the power of North Pacific ground swells and enjoy ideal weather and wind conditions. At the same time, the year-round southerly swells spurned by storms off New Zealand, Antarctica and Chile, provide a factor of consistency even when North Pacific swell is in a lull so that it is rarely below head high at the Galapagos Islands during the surf season, and often substantially bigger than that.

Under the new regulations of the Galapagos Marine Reserve, surfing is permitted within the boundaries of this second largest marine reserve in the world.

Also included are kayaking, windsurfing and sailing, a group of environmentally friendly activities.

Under certain conditions it is legal to surf near five of the islands of the Galapagos Archipelago. Rules have been established to avoid disturbances on the natural environment, as well as accidents, and to guarantee a good enjoyable experience to all surfers.
