SURF TERMS/SURF LINGO IN SPANISH - DICCIONARIO DE SURFEAR


If you are surfing in Sayulita, and you are trying to learn Spanish, and you want to talk about surfing in Spanish, you should check this out. With the help of my amigos here I have put together a basic diccionario of surf terms in Spanish.

Please note that:

  • This is the terminology in Sayulita. In Puerto Escondido or Spain or Costa Rica it could be different.
  • It may not be 100% accurate. I'm still working on it.
  • The list is obviously not complete. I'm still working on it.
  • Contributions/corrections are welcome.
