Surfing Ixtapa / Troncones

January 1st, 2004 | Posted by rob@baja3000.com in 2004 Ixtapa/Troncones Mexico | Past TGT Trips - (Comments Off on Surfing Ixtapa / Troncones)

Troncones is about one hour north of Ixtapa. Familiar surf spots are Manzanillo Bay, Boca, Burros and the elusive “The Ranch”. We had an increadible pad to base out of, with bats and wicked surf right out the back door. Horse shoe and massages were plentyfull and be carefull not to let the burro in to the gate. The trip was during July…HOT, HOT, HOT!!! but the pool right on the beach was the cure.
Surf…. well it was good. One day at Manzanillo Bay was a solid 8′ and another day at The Ranch was about the same. Solid surf…. The other days were b/n 3-6, GREAT trip, good fun.
Here are some surf shots… (No full time photogs on this one)

An incredible trip…. Neumann was the FIRST Honored Mate, the ceremony was established and the rest is history. Great waves, great pad, incredible adventure. We had funky bugs, bats, great chow, bald parrots, the Chevy Autos and Glen the host. Goooood times.
