Surf’s up in Belize

By Slickrock Adventures on June 11, 2014

If you are wondering where to find Belize surfing, look no further! Our super-popular surf sports on the island often take center stage with our guests, after they find out that you don’t need to be an expert to experience the thrills of rising the breaking weaves right in front of our island. Long Caye enjoys the only viable surf break in the country since our wave does not break on live coral and the configuration of the shoals create a long running break.

Most days find the surf break at a nice, easy 3-4’ height, and we take people out on our surf kayaks and paddleboards every day. However, some days we wake up to truly large surf pounding on the reef outside the island, which has been created by exceptionally strong winds far out to sea. Since we are sitting at 2’ above sea level, these 10-12’ waves are higher than the island and it is always exciting to actually look up at these waves as they break on the outside reef. We still surf the remnants of this swell as it breaks on the surf shoal area, but these type of waves are considerably more powerful than normal.
