The surf break at Las Gaviotas is an exposed reef break that has reliable surf. Autumn and winter are the favoured times of year for waves. Offshore winds blow from the northeast. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the south. Waves break both left and right and are surfable at all stages of the tide. The best part – It very rarely gets crowded here.
Surf almost perfect waves with No Crowds! Las Gaviotas can be your personal, private Baja surf spot. Stay at Endless Summer Villa or Point Break Villa and surf right outside your door. Plenty of space to store your boards and park your car where it is safe right inside the walled, gated community where there is an hourly, walking patrol of security officers.
The surf conditions are similar to Southern California. During the months of October to April, surfing in Baja, the water temperature ranges between 50 and 60 degrees, so it is always best to wear a full suit and booties. Swells during the winter period typically come from the West to Northwest and are fairly consistent. Summer months offer great surfing with spring suit to trunk conditions with temperatures ranging from high 60’s to mid 70’s.
The Las Gaviotas break, sometimes referred to as “Gavs” is mostly fast power rights (with an occasional lefts) and holds into the afternoon with kelp beds helping just outside the break. The height is head high to double overhead with a regular consistency. The skill required is from beginner to pro. When you stay at Point Break Villa or Endless Summer Villa you can sit on your patio and watch the conditions and head out when you and the break are ready.
