Guided Surf Excursions

Every morning at daybreak we are checking the conditions to make decisions where to spend our day surfing with you.. After 20 year of drinking coffee on the same beach at the same time, we have this part of the day down to a science. Red Frog Bungalows boasts the most experience in the region and our surf guides know when and where to strike daily. Our daily surf excursion departures depends on tide, wind, swell direction, swell size, your ability as well as your specific wants and needs. These surf services are not open to the public and provided for only guests at the resort. We have a maximum of 10 surfers in the resort at one time and the surf trips last for 4 hours. However, if the waves are good… we want nothing more than to stay on the water most of the day. Our goal is to make sure you are surfed out by the time you leave Red Frog Bungalows Resort. Our guided surf trips are not included in the room rates. The cost is $65.00 per person per day.

Outer Dumps

Slab left hander breaking over volcanic rock. The approach for this wave is behind the peak. Take off really deep and you have a better chance of making the barrel. Intermediate and advanced ability.

Inner Dumps

Fast, rippable wave breaking over a sharp volcanic rock ledge. . Drop in, draw your line and start racing the wave. Goofy footers have an advantage here with a long drawn out barrel and a big air section on the inside. Advanced ability required.


This is a fun wave that offers 3 very different sections. The top section is fast, shallow and can be pretty hollow with the right tide. The middle section slows down a bit and its more maneuverable. The inside section is a hollow and fast barrel so once you get up you better start racing it!
