Introduction to the city:

Located in the Gulf of Tehuantepec in southern Mexico, Salina Cruz is a city with one of the most important commercial and oil ports of Mexico.
The name of the city, Ike Sidi Biá ("Red Saline" in zapotec), it's due to its salt landscape, as it was formerly a fishing village that they lived only from the sea. Today we find the notable presence of the Refinery Ing. Antonio Dovalí Jaime de Petróleos Mexicanos, of its construction caused the people were replaced for what is now the city of Salina Cruz, whose most of the inhabitants are refinery workers who were coming in search of job.


Yet, the essence of the life of a coastal fishing village is still present not far from the city , where much of the salt and fishing families that once lived on the beach in Salina Cruz moved around the city, creating small and humble fishing villages.
In these peoples inhabit many indigenous cultures like zapotecs, ikots, waves, mixe, chontal and mixtec.

Salina Cruz is a dream for surfers, with many perfect spots and long solitary waves under sunny skies. The pointbreaks are those places where surfers seem dreaming: a place not inhabited, no restaurants, hotels or houses on the beach, a dream come true, an incredible adventure for those looking for a place to return to the true spirit of surfing.

Aspects

The best swell direction ranges from 160° to 230°, from the southern hemisphere. In this area, from autumn to winter, the winds often reach 80 km/h. In the months of March to October winds become soft with a north wind more constant, reaching gusts of 20 to 50 knots, perfect to kitesurf, and leaving the sand bottom ready for the south waves, perfect to surf.
The wind here is who decides the best place to surf or when kitesurfing.
