This is Toro from Blue Surf Adventures Costa Rica Surf School with your Santa Teresa Surf Report for this week. This is the Santa Teresa surf report and nearby breaks Playa Hermosa, Playa Carmen and Mal Pais, located in the South Nicoya Peninsula in the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica.
This past week, July 24th/31st, surf was mellow and very user friendly. Old SSW swell fading out at the beginning of the week and waves were on the waist to chest high range. Clean and glassy conditions prevailed and lots of fun waves at the peak upfront Blue Surf Adventures Santa Teresa Surf School. Surf was lot more fun on a buoyant board preferably a longboard for me. Clear water as the surf was mellow that looked a lot like summer time. Swell built in for the weekend and surf was epic on Sunday with overhead and a half waves rolling mostly empty at the point break! Just the local crew paddled out, like in the good old days!
Monday: Old SSW swell that peaked last week was fading fast and waves didn’t reached over shoulder high. Conditions were nice and clean and surf was fun and user friendly at the peak upfront Blue Surf Adventures Santa Teresa Surf School.
Tuesday: Small SSW swell leftovers, strongest Tuesday with waist high surf at exposures, while standouts go chest high during favorable tides.
Wednesday: Surf kept small in the waist high range. Lots of mellow waves, were easy to catch and fun to ride. conditions were clean most of the day water was clear and it was easy to stay for a long session.
Thursday: Small Southerly swell mix offers waist high and under surf.
Friday: Windy onshore and messy surf almost all day. There were still some kin surfers that had the patience to wait and got some good ride at the beach break upfront Blue Surf Adventures Santa Teresa Surf School.
Saturday: New SW-SSW swell showed up late Friday and built overnight. Waves were on the head high range in the morning with some bigger sets coming in. A bit of action at the reefs and over at the point break.
Sunday: Larger sets become more frequent and Surf rose further on Sunday with sets pushing 2-3’+ overhead for standouts. Epic session at the point break with some perfect and pretty long nuggets peeling all the way to the beach break. Not many paddle out, just the old crew. It was like a flashback from the old days! Lots of chatting, joking, laughing and epic surfing!!!
