It seems like everyone is long overdue for some travel and a proper surf trip. Ever since the pandemic started we’ve been thinking about warm water and empty waves somewhere far-off and tropical. El Salvador was the perfect spot to bring our dreams to life. There’s nothing like that surf trip feeling when life slows down and all that matters is what the waves are doing and where to find your next taco. We got lucky with a solid swell and glassy conditions all week, which we hear isn’t the norm in this part of Central America. With 80° water and 90° air it was perfect temps for some boardshort testing. We spent our days surfing reeling right points and taking boat trips to remote reef breaks down the coast. Here's a collection of photos from a week off the grid in nothing but Maui Rippers.
