Surfing is one of the most popular water activities in San Pancho. San Pancho's beach is more than one kilometer long, so depending on conditions there are various choice spots to launch from. Most days a number of surfers can be seen lined up to catch the best waves. Both locals and tourists alike can be seen at various spots, and there are definitely some quality surfers! Late afternoon is a popular time for locals after they finish their day's work, and they definitely add to the scenery for all the people who head to the beach to enjoy their favorite drink and take in the famous San Pancho sunsets. 


For those in the know it is possible to catch point breaks off the headland at either end of the beach and there is a beach break in front of the lagoon closest to the south end of the beach. Waves obviously vary, but can be very large on certain days. It is very important to always remember the strong undertow and currents, and put safety first.

Although the San Pancho break is sporadic it attracts a number of neighboring surf communities who are always watching the reports and dropping by to see if the swell is happening at that moment.
