It's hard to put into words how amazing my first trip to El Salvador was, but here goes. We did a surf tour and Walter was with us for 7 days. This was almost a year ago and the K-Lodge hadn't been completed yet. He picked us (mom, dad, two brothers, a friend, and myself) up from the airport. We dropped our stuff off and immediately went surfing with Walter. It was so nice to have him in the water for my first go out in El Salvador. While on the west side we surfed El Zonte, Punta Roca, Playa el Tunco, K59, K61, and a couple others that slipped my mind. This was in the span of 4 days. Every session was solid. Head-high to over head and perfect. K59 was my favorite. Just a perfect wave. Room to do about 10 turns and get barreled. It was so fun. Walter drove us to and from every spot and surfed with us. He gave us the run-down and all spots regarding where to sit, hazards, and local factor. All the locals were very nice to us when they knew we were with Walter. My family and I had this saying while we were down there..."You know Walter? Of course, everybody knows Walter." We truly had every place dialed because of him. It was nice not having to worry about driving or parking or where we were going. If a spot wasn't good (perfect), we'd drive for a little and get to a spot that was perfect. Then we went to Las Flores. Scored there too. We stayed a little ways from the beach since all the places on he beach were booked. Not a problem though. Walter would have us on the beach whenever we wanted. Even when we woke him up at 4am to get to a boat to score the best waves of my life at Punta Mango, Walter was as fired up as we were. I could go on and on. The bottom line is that because of quality of the waves, the beauty of El Salvador and most importantly our friend Walter, we will come back every year. Can't wait to stay a the K-Lodge and surf K59 all day, every day. Thanks Walter. Cheers.
