Always Seeking The Best Waves
Surfing in Santa Catalina is world class. Kept secret for years by Panama's surfing elite, as Santa Catalina offers the most consistent, easy to line up, big wave in Central America if not all of the Americas. Even still, because of its remote location and the number of options, surfing is relatively uncrowded much of the time.
Most of the surf is for experienced surfers with the exception of Estero, where beginners can practice on smaller, yet consistent waves and a sand beach.
For experienced surfers, Santa Catalina, Panama offers powerful hollows that break both left and right. The bottom is rocky and the volcanic rock can be tough on feet, heads and boards! The waves roll in year round and typically range 4 to 15 feet, with the largest between February and August when faces can push 20 to 25 feet.
The water is warm year round. Wetsuits are not needed. Bring just the sunscreen, warm water wax and a pair of reef shoes to protect against the volcanic rocks.
