We are located right in front of 4 different waves. It’s uncrowded, with consistent, offshore winds nearly all year round! The “swell” season starts in March and ends in September/October with chest to overhead waves. From November to early March, waves tend to be a bit smaller: waist to head high.
El Transito Beachbreak is one of the most consistent, if not the most consistent, wave of Nicaragua. It breaks from 1 to 6 foot and works best between mid- to high-tide. The wave breaks left and right and has something for every level.
This wave is located right between the Mainbreak and La Vuelta. It is a bit longer, steeper, heavier and barrels from time to time. It also works best from mid- to high-tide and has a long left and a shorter right. Can take a bit more swell than the Mainbreak.
Right on the south end of town you will find a left point-break called La Vuelta. It needs a bit more swell and works best around low tide. It will offer you an easy take off with one of the longest rides in El Transito, perfect for your first green wave or to just improve on your cutbacks.
