CARDON RESORT, SINALOA, MEXICO

Discover the epic left point that sits directly out front of Cardon Surf Resort. No driving or crowds allowed, just good times with a fun group of surfers. Surf, eat, sleep, repeat.

THE LODGE

Cardon Surf Resort is a small boutique hotel that sits directly in front of a sandstone reef point. No need for a car or stress. The surf is steps away from your room and the line-up is exclusive to the guests of the hotel. Crowds are never an issue.

The spacious rooms are all air-conditioned. Each room has two double beds, large bathrooms and all of the rooms are equipped with Flat screen LCD TV, DVD, satellite service, refrigerator, coffee makers and more. All rooms have a patio or balcony overlooking the Infinity Pool and Jacuzzi and an expansive view of the wave out front.

The on-site restaurant  is a classic Palapa style building with A/C. The dining room has an amazing view of the point and the sunsets are spectacular. The dining experience at Cardon Resort is top notch with a menu that combines elements of Mexican, European and American cuisine designed to meet the needs of the hungry but health conscious surfer. The Restaurant-Bar area is equipped with 3G wireless internet and satellite TV.

All inclusive trips run Saturday-to-Saturday (all meals and rides to the resort are included).  With only eight rooms on site, this resort tends to fill up quickly. It always best to book six months to one year in advance during the prime south swell season (April-October).

Prices per person start at $1295.00 per week for a double room.

Tune out and tune up. This is one of TSS’s best priced surf trips.

Why is this is a personal favorite of Terry Simms?

“I have never been so happily satisfied after surfing Cardon. Pure fun, no fear, no worries, easy breezy. The only downside is your legs will burn after twenty rides that are 200 yards long. With 16 surfers maximum on site, the vibe is intimate and family-like. The finale of the day is drinking Margaritas in the pool at sunset reliving the great surf session with new friends.”

– Terry Simms

THE SURF

Directly in front of Cardon, Tiburon is a classic sand bottom point set-up. This wave works well given any southerly swell direction (south through southwest), consistently providing rides in the 150 -200+ yard range. This long wave provides for a diverse range of abilities. With the small crowd on hand and the high wave count that comes with each session the set-up is perfect for coaching.

“The enchantment of Cardon draws me back every year.  It’s a contrast of variety:  Great surf out front–a long user-friendly left, stellar accommodations and outstanding food, a wonderful staff geared to make your visit perfect and always a great gathering of friends, old and new.  I’ve surfed for over 40 years and Cardon is as perfect a surf resort as you can find.”

The proximity to the hotel and the long lefts make Cardon a mind-blowing playground where you will find waves and kickers all within a riding distance. The launch is just steps from your room on a sandy beach, the wind kicks in around 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m., leaving plenty of time to catch some morning surf. The kite sessions end late in the afternoon around 5:00 p.m. just in time for a sun-down cocktail or beer. The winter and spring seasons see the windiest and most consistent conditions.
