About Troncones

Head north from Ixtapa during the spring, summer and autumn months and you're guaranteed to find some great surf, including one of Mexico's best lefthand pointbreaks. Troncones Point marks the first elbow in the Pacific Coast's northwest bend, so it's positioned to pick up plenty of swell energy from the South Pacific. The wave will wrap hard around the cobblestone shoreline, which makes for long but shouldery peelers. As a result, you will hear more longboarders rave about Troncones Point then you will shortboarders. Nevertheless, it's a great pointbreak when there is swell, plus there are a plethora of other good (and sometimes better) beach/pointbreaks nearby including La Boca, Saladita and The Ranch just up the coast.
