Video: Surfing in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

One of the advantages of currently being based in Puerto Vallarta (Mexico) is that I can often enjoy my favorite sport: surfing. The area might not be one of the top surfing destinations in the world, but there are plenty of waves during the year to let me surf more days than not, and enjoy the sun, sea and natural surroundings this great sport allows (find more info about surfing in Puerto Vallarta).

Some of the best surf sessions in Puerto Vallarta I’ve had include one in which a group of us surfers enjoyed the show displayed by two humpback whales jumping less thank 1km from us on a sunny day, another in which a huge school of fish swam right to where I was and suddenly I found myself in the middle of a feeding frenzy where dozens of pelicans and Bobby birds were diving around me to catch the fish, joined shortly after by 2 dolphins, and spotting turtles that come up for air plenty of times too.

The video was filmed mostly with a GoPro Hero camera, mounted on the surfboard, and shows me having plenty of fun in the water. I hope you enjoy it!
