My Brothers and I surfed this place for ten days. This shot gives you a little better of idea of the line up and paddle. Looks like a real good six foot and hollow day. This place is considered a good "Beginner" spot.
I read about La Liberdad in "Searching for Captain Zero" by Allan Weisbecker. I saw pictures of it in Surfer Magazine but, they never named the spot. It took some googling but we found it.
The best Salvadorian surfer is a local named, Jimmy Rotherham. He was mentioned in the book as well. The week we were there, he was on the cover of Surfing Magazine. We met him and gave him our copy, as he hadn't seen it yet. He was a really nice guy. Kelly Slater (multi world title surfer) called him "one of the best surfers he had ever seen."
I got food poisoning the third day and ate one power bar a day for four days. I was able to surf, but I was not a happy gringo.
We had an epic time.
My brother Dennis broke his collar bone Friday, skiing. I am thinking of you bro, feel better, lets plan a trip!
