general information

SilverBacks is located on an outer reef off the north western tip of Bastimentos Island. It is Boca's premier big wave spot and Panama's answer to Sunset. On large north swells, waves jack up from deep water to produce massive slabs of water parading as a rideable wave, and if you have the capability offer ultra thick right hand barrels and an intense video worthy ride. For big wave specialists and pros only.
