Travel Diary - Charging & Recharging in El Salvador
Posted on May 10 2022
Don't you love when a last-minute trip turns out to be just what you needed to reset, recharge, and return to "real life" ready to conquer? We recently met up with Tony Silvagni in Central America to explore the coastline of El Salvador and checked all those boxes.
Prepping for the trip, it's all about the boards! Here's the quiver that covered all the bases, from classic to high-performance: 5’7 Retro Fish, 7’6 2Fun, 9’0 CMP, and a 9’4 Tipster.
The surf wasn’t by any means ‘pumping’ but when you wake up to glassy waves each morning rolling down the points, it puts a few things into perspective. Wasting time checking multiple spots didn’t cross our minds -- we rolled up our sleeves and got to work!

It didn’t take long before we spotted Tony perched on his Tipster coming down the point.
We got a nice escort each morning from the local security guard. Pretty sure the $4 he demanded every day to park was just because he liked us.
Those boards sure are pretty. 9’0 CMP and a 9’4 Tipster.
The lovely little weekend party town, El Tunco, provided a couple of rideable waves not too far from the restaurants and bars.
The 2FUN proved to be too fun in the water!
Nothin' feeds the soul like a few days of sun, surf, laughter & good food! Until next time...
