The Delta Surf Guide

The Delta in Sucre is an exposed point break that has pretty consitent surf. Winter is the favoured time of year for surfing here. Works best in offshore winds from the south southwest. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell direction is from the northeast. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Take care of coral and sharks.
