About Silverbacks

Bastimientos is home to 2 radically different breaks. Silverbacks is Bocas' big wave spot and it's the only right reefbreak in the zone. The ride is short, but the drops are long as the wave ledges up into a large barrel. Boards over 7' are recommended to surf this spot. It needs a good size swell to start breaking and will hold over 20 ft (6m).
