About K59 Surf House
The Bustamante family has owned the K59 property since 1971, when it was originally built as their vacation home. The family now host surfers from all over the world, using their local knowledge and to transport you to the best breaks and to visit the best places to see in El Salvador.
When they first came to the area, the family didn’t realise the surfer’s paradise they found themselves in, and for many years, young Gerardo Bustamante would have the break all to himself. Little did he know he would one day help his family run a world-class surf resort.
Eventually news traveled about the perfect right-hand point break located directly in the property’s front yard. As word got out, the Bustamante’s property soon became a surf destination, and the family transitioned their vacation home into K59 Surf House.
K59 is known as one of the premier right-hand point breaks in El Salvador, rightly earning its reputation as the land of magical right-hand point breaks. The country offers the highest density of quality point breaks in Latin America, and is a natural-footers dream destination. Though lesser known than its more high-profile cobblestone counterparts Punta Roca and Punta Mango, K59’s point is one of the best right-handed waves in El Salvador.
Situated in a gated community with limited public access in order to maintain the privacy and comfort of K59’s owners and guests, the set up is designed to keep crowds to a minimum. Just a short walk down the rocky beach is k61, another cobble-stone-bottomed point break that can be slightly more challenging than k59. You will earn your afternoon siesta paddling out at k61! Taking a walk into the jungle-covered mountains or rocky headlands above the ocean is also a wonderful way to pass the time. The views from the mountains around k59 are breath-taking.
When to go?
El Salvador has two seasons: Winter and Summer.
Winter season runs approximately May through October. This is the time of year when you can expect the biggest, most consistent swell, often in the double-overhead range. Local winds trend offshore in the morning, and side-shore later, giving the afternoon session a bit of bump. Winds slacken off again late afternoon, with the surf normally glassing off by dark, thunderstorms are possible around this time.
November through April marks the summer season, which brings lots of sun and dry days. The water is clear and the wind is mostly offshore. The swells trend smaller, but conditions are calm, and the surf is more playful and inviting than the big, wintertime southern-hemi swells. No matter which season you choose, the waves at k59 are consistent all year long.
