Mexico sings sweetly in your ear whenever the winter mornings feel a little too crisp, or the spring winds a little too relentless. I’ll never understand how just south of the border, the surf conditions can be that much more superior, but alas. Offshore all day, pumping right point breaks and all the empty beach break peaks you could ever want. Welcome to where you’re gonna get surfed out.
A few friends and I headed down for the beginning of south swell season and were delighted to find ourselves triple seshing, burning to a crisp in the hot sun and happening upon perfect point breaks I'd never heard of before. Often taking boats, hikes or long paddles in order to escape the other wave-hungry backpackers. I brought two of the Bing Surf Shop demo boards: the 5'8" Sunfish for the beachies and the 7'6" Collector which was my board of choice for the point breaks. The Collector lived up to it's name - I could milk the inside then paddle out for a couple leg burner set waves. The board flew- connecting sections, making it through flat spots and being all around really fun-to-surf board. If you had to surf one board forever (or just bring one board on surf trip), this would be a solid choice.
The Sunfish was nimble and quick. Paddled into waves better than I was expecting and thankfully helped me duck dive under some closeouts that I wanted nothing to do with.
A good amount of the crew (myself excluded) extending for another week to surf the following swell, which Surfline dubbed “La Bomba”. I don’t think I could have surfed any more if I tried. It felt good to come home to the fog and let my sunburned eyes settle after a week of perfect lines coming in from the horizon. God it feels good to be surfed out.

Name, hometown, and surfboard brand.
Josh Peterson, hometown Virginia Beach (born) Haleiwa (currently living), and my brand is Peterson Surfcraft.
When and where did you start surfing? Describe your first surfboard.
I started surfing when I was about 15 in Virginia Beach, and my first board was an old funboard from WRV that was about 7’6” and had glass on thrusters and an insane airbrush.
