Stormrider Description
Stormrider Logo
Baja California is a 3,200km (2,000mi) long finger of rugged coastline with hidden coves, white sandy beaches, rocky bluffs and crystal-blue waters teeming with wildlife. The W coast of Baja California is exposed to Pacific swells whilst the Sea of Cortez, dividing the Baja Peninsula, from the Mexican mainland remains relatively calm. The 1200km (750mi) long Pacific side of this peninsula is a major surf destination for Californian waveriders, who follow the MEX1 as far S as they can go to Cabo San Lucas. The north part of this zone, up to 5h drive from the California border, is a well-travelled area that produces major big waves like Todos Santos. These break on N swells in cool water, due to the upwelling currents. The middle of the zone, around the epic Seven Sisters, swarms with good right-hand points, but these have difficult road access. In the south, the tip of Baja is washed by warm seas and offers a 200° swell window from the NNW around to the SE. It also has a better road system and a few well developed seaside resorts. Los Cabos favours S swells from either long distance lows or nearby hurricanes, but the W coast also receives a fair amount of N swells.
