Come join us in this lesser-traveled part of western Ecuador where surfing is still the way it used to be. Uncrowded point breaks, warm water, predictable waves, friendly locals, great food and cheap drink…this is a real surfer’s paradise!
Ecuador’s prime surf season is from December to April during the season of NW swells that are generated by winter storms in the North Pacific ocean. Winds during this time of year are predominantly glassy to offshore along most of the coast resulting in often good to epic conditions. During this season Ecuador is a world-class surfing destination and one of the most consistent places to score tropical waves during the Northern hemisphere winter.
Ecuador’s coast offers outstanding surfing and adventure opportunities but few luxury services. ROAM, in conjunction with local surf legend Sol Funk, has built the ultimate surf house right on the beach in Mompiche. Each room has gorgeous beach views, large balcony and en suite facilities. The best beach break in the area is outside your door and we are situated one mile down the beach from Mompiche’s famous left-hand point.
Mompiche is a sleepy fishing village turned surf Mecca but still offers a raw and authentic adventure in one of Ecuador’s most spectacular coastlines. Your local host, Sol, will treat participants to the best surfing, great organic and whole food meals, local seafood and a host of other experiences beyond the surf.

What to Expect on the Ecuador Surf Safari
We pride ourselves in running a relaxed and flexible schedule. Every trip is different depending upon the group, other trips in the area, and sometimes the weather. The following is a sample of what your trip might be like.
Day One – arrival in Quito
Today you will arrive in Quito and take a taxi to your hotel. Here you will rendezvous with the rest of the group and get prepared for morning transfer to Mompiche via the beautiful village of Mindo.
Day Two – Quito to Mompiche
Your driver will pick you up after breakfast and take you on a scenic drive to Mompiche. We’ll stop for lunch along the way and visit the town of Mindo. As we approach the coast we will quickly adjust to the tropical climate of the tiny fishing village of Mompiche. The town is still primarily a fishing village but is slowing becoming recognized for Ecuador’s best left-hand point break. Tonight we’ll have a welcome dinner and prepare for tomorrow’s surf sessions. Overnight Casa Surf
Days Three to Six
A typical day will start with tropical fruit, rich coffee and healthy breakfast before heading to the water. Massage and yoga classes are available as well (at additional cost). Long stretches of white sand and warm waters are an added attraction to one of the world’s best places to learn surfing. In addition to miles of beach break, there are 4 distinct sessions at the point with the latter 3 being over sand. Predictable waves up to 4 meters are easily accessed. Beginners will revel at the opportunity to ride long waves into a gentle beach while more advanced surfers will be able to catch massive rides for up to 400 meters. Overnight Casa Surf.
After a morning session in Mompiche, it’s on the road for a two hour drive to Esmeraldas and flights back to Quito. Overnight Hacienda La Jimenita.
Breakfast and transfer to the airport or onward for your next adventure in Ecuador.
