The best surf spots in Puerto Rico

Since the dawn of time, or maybe since surf spot hunting time, there have been countless of lists published on the best places to surf in Puerto Rico.

While most of those lists are fine, they generally, if not exclusively, mention beaches in the west of the island. Although beaches like Crash Boat in Aguadilla, to the most popular beaches in Rincón like Pools, Sandy Beach, Antonio's, Tres Palmas, Maria's and Domes, to Isabela's Jobos and Middles are amazing and should be recognized for their powerful waves and beauty - Puerto Rico has a lot more to offer.

Are you ready to ride the Golden Bull in El Salvador?

Nowadays, the notion of secret spots for waves does not carry much substance. Surfers take pictures of themselves riding these great waves, and they post them with a caption that they will not reveal the name of the spot because this is a secret spot in this particular country... like they are doing this great favor to humanity.

When you post a picture on the internet, anyone with a little bit of gray matter, Google Earth and GPS technology, will find the exact location of the place in a few hours, if not minutes.

El Salvador is a relatively small country similar in size to Israel. It only has a little bit more than 300 kilometers of coastline.

It's not just the land of potatoes, rain, and Guinness, you know. One of Ireland's best-kept secrets has been out of the bag for some time now: this country has world-class surf.

There are 3172 kilometers of coastline, and the southern and western shores are the first point of contact for waves originating in the remotest parts of the North Atlantic, kicked up and driven on by the relentless Gulf Stream; shaped on arrival by pristine reef.

Kelly Slater and the Malloy brothers braved the bluster, and with too many great surf spots to name in one article (and more being discovered all the time), here are five to get you thinking about following suit.
