El Tunco has 3 different surfing areas that are surfable in most conditions from 2-15ft. Due to the towns popularity, it is a busy location with crowded periods at times (though certain times can still be uncrowded).
The 3 surfing areas break in a variety of conditions and tides, generally speaking:
La Bocana (left) - best in medium (3-5ft) swells, this river-mouth left is much sort after as it is the best left in the country (rides up to 150 metres with great shape). Experienced and respectful surfers only (due to crowd and competitive nature).
The beach breaks (lefts and rights) - best on small (2-3ft) swells, can be fun for intermediates
Sunzal (right) - a very popular wave due to it's consistency, long walls and ability to be surfable from 2 to 15ft. This right hand point break has many different moods depending on the swell and tide. It picks up a lot of swell and is surfable most days of the year.
The waves are suitable for experienced and intermediate surfers.
