At 1 hour from Panama City, Panama Private Tours takes you to the "Gulf Area" with more than 6 different surf spots to choose from that range from 3ft to 10+ft faces. The Bay Area includes a variety of sand bars, beach breaks and point breaks that are perfect for beginners or intermediate surfers as well as fun for the more experienced surfers, don't miss out! Playa Malibu
Panama Private Tours takes you to Malibu. Malibu is located directly in front of a river, and is a sand bottom right and left break best during medium to low tide. The right is good at low tide, and the left is good at medium tide going up. This spot is one of the best and most consistent spots in the Panama Bay area and you can get some good tubes and long rides when there is a good swell. Playa Serena
Panama Private Tours takes you to Serena. The break is a right point break with good tubes at the point, then after the rocks, the wave tends to mush out but keeps a long rippable wall. You can get rides as long as 200 yards. There must be a good swell for this spot to work well.
Playa Teta – This spot has 3 different breaks
The Front (Frente de Teta) is the rock/sand bottom break that is located directly to the right of the river mouth, or in front of the river mouth, depending on how the river is flowing at that time (it changes from time to time). The front has long lefts at low tide, and rights and lefts at medium to high tide.
The Point (Punta de Teta) is the point break that is located directly to the left of the river mouth. It is a point break over rock bottom that breaks left and right, with good tubes at the peak and long rides. It is best at medium tide going up.
This spot is named after the famous break in California called "Rincon", so the Panamanians called it "Little Rincon", or "Rinconsito". Rinconsito is the rock bottom point that is located directly to the left of Punta Teta, and it is a long right break. You can get rides of up to 200 yards on a good swell.
Playa El Palmar – This beach has 3 breaks
Frente Palmar (Palmar Front) is a beach break with rock bottom on the left hand side. This break tends to become very crowded due to the surf camp located nearby. The beach break is a close-out and is mainly surfed by beginners.
Punta Palmar (Palmar Point) is a rock bottom point break directly to the right of the beach break, and has right peeling waves at medium to high tide. There must be a good swell for this spot to break well, but when it is good, it can get very powerful and fun.
PictureLittle Hawaii (Hawaiisito) is a rock bottom point break to the left of the beach break, down to the left of the concrete wall at Palmar. It breaks to the left at full high tide, and can be fun, but this spot is quite weak, and can only handle a small swell of about 3 to 4 feet, otherwise it closes out.
Playa Rio Mar – Rio Mar has 2 breaks
Rio Mar Front (Frente de Rio Mar) is the beach break, with rocks spread throughout various parts of it. It is best at medium to high tide, and has rights and lefts.
Punta Rio Mar (Rio Mar Point) is the point break down to the right of Rio Mar Front. At low tide, you have to walk down the beach for about a mile to the point, and then walk through the rocks, and paddle out where there is a long rock ledge that sticks out into the ocean. The wave breaks right and left, but the rights are best and it only breaks at low tide. This wave is usually hit hardest by swells in the gulf area and thus usually has the most size and crowds. On a very good swell this wave resembles Catalina in the sense that it has a strong, well formed right, and a weaker shorter left, breaking over rocky bottom.
