Beautiful Surf in Santa Teresa

Beautiful Surf in Santa Teresa

Tuesday February 17th 2015. Good surf in Santa Teresa today. Waves were bigger in the morning, reaching overhead a few feet at exposed breaks. Conditions were good and clean, however there was a bit of a current from North to South making it hard to stay on the peak. Beach break upfront our Costa Rica surf hotel was fun. Suck Rock was not barreling often but some long rights rolled over the point break.

Monday February 16th 2015. Surf was very good today in Santa Teresa. Waves were a few feet overhead/ high range with very sporadic big sets. Suck Rock was working very well at dawn but slowed down once the sun was up until late morning when it started getting more consistent again. Clean conditions and lots of good waves rolled in at the beach break upfront Blue Surf Sanctuary.

Saturday February 14th 2015. Very good surf in Costa Rica today! Waves were on the few feet overhead range, bigger in the afternoon. Excellent conditions all day long with offshore wind blowing all day. The morning session was more shifty and peaks were moving around the beach break. Yet some very good and long waves broke at the peak upfront our surf school.

Friday February 13th 2015. Very good surf in Costa Rica this morning at Playa Santa Teresa and Playa Carmen. Waves were head high and slightly overhead on sets. More NW swell added to the SW swell and the forecast looks quite great for the next week! The beach break upfront Blue Surf Sanctuary was hollow with the low tide and there were some good nuggets barreling over Suck Rock!

Wednesday February 11th 2015. Good surf today at Santa Teresa beach! Waves were on the head to a few feet overhead high range in the morning when the SSW swell peaked. Conditions were nice and clean, and there were some nice, playful rides rolling in at the peak upfront Blue Surf Sanctuary hotel. The point break Suck Rock was also working but the lack of size and power in the waves was not letting the barrel get very deep and it was more of a steep drop and a little cover up fading into the channel.

Monday February 9th 2015. Fair surf in Costa Rica today. Waves were on the waist to chest high range with old SSW swell fading out. Long and strong rain last night came in along with weird weather for this time of the year. The ocean was messy and unorganized throughout the day with random peaks all over the place. However, there were a few nice rides that rolled in at the peak upfront Blue Surf Sanctuary, our Santa Teresa surf school, and the surf was really fun!

Friday February 6th 2015. Excellent surf in Costa Rica today at Santa Teresa beach and nearby breaks. Waves were on the head to few feet overhead high range and conditions held perfectly clean all day until almost 2pm! Some very good waves broke at the beach break upfront Blue Surf Sanctuary and the point break at Suck Rock, a short walk away from our surf camp, was firing all morning! It was very good early on with the high tide, and got better at noon when deep barrels rolled over the rock one after the other.

Tuesday February 3rd 2015. Good surf this morning in Santa Teresa beach. Waves were on the waist to chest high range as old swell continues to fade away. The beach break upfront Blue Surf Sanctuary Hotel was working good in the morning when conditions were clean and glassy. Some waves were closing out with the low tide due to the direction of the swell and the amount of sand on the beach. However, the waves that opened allowed for some very good tube rides!

The water was glassy and the air was still. Surf was more open and mushy at Playa Carmen, where the waves were rolling very long all the way in. Santa Teresa was hollow and there were some closeouts, but some very nice barrels too! Afternoon was a bit more unorganized and messy.

Saturday January 31st 2015. Fairly good surf today in Santa Teresa beach. Waves were on the waist to chest high range and the old W swell is fading away. Still some bigger sets would come in from time to time, as this swell has had very long lulls.

There is a lot of sand over the banks and the waves are hollow and fast with the low tide.

Thursday Jan 29th 2015. Santa Teresa surf conditions were very good this afternoon. Waves were on the head high range, with sporadic bigger sets very far apart from each other.

Lots of energy from the south kept the inside current towards suck rock all day long.

Friday December 26th 2014. Very good surf in Santa Teresa Costa Rica today! Waves were on the chest to head high range at the most exposed breaks. Conditions were very good in the morning with howling offshore winds that lasted until early afternoon. This winds, called “Vientos Papagayo,” are the result of cold air fronts descending from the north and pushing the wind through the low lands in the south of Nicaragua and north of Costa Rica. Vientos Papagayo is the most significant event to the locals, since it determines the beginning of the dry season or summer. The waves were standing up and breaking into spiting barrels, especially around noon with the low tide. The air was still by late afternoon, although the ocean answered back with messy conditions and a bit of chop.

Friday October 3 2014. Surf was very good today in Santa Teresa beach. Waves were a few feet overhead as new SW swell is filling in. Conditions a bit messy in the morning and during the high tide, kept the surf choppy and unorganized. Conditions cleaned up after wind switched offshore in the afternoon and there were some long and playful overhead walls rolling down at the beach break upfront Blue Surf Sanctuary hotel.

Monday September 29th 2014. Surf was fun today in Playa Santa Teresa. Waves were in the shoulder to head high range with bigger sets at exposed breaks. Long period S swell started to fill in and there was a bit of current on the beach break towards Suck Rock. Nice and very long lefts rolled in down at the beach break in La Lora, short walk South from Blue Surf Sanctuary Surf Camp.

Friday September 26th 2014. Surf was poor today in Playa Santa Teresa. Waves were on the waist to chest high range product of local wind swell with no predominant direction. Some S swell is slowly adding to the mix and will hopefully bring more energy tomorrow. Conditions were stormy and messy most of the day, however there were still a few nice playful rides at the beach break upfront Blue Surf Sanctuary.

Thursday September 25th 2014. Surf was poor today in Santa Teresa. Waves were on the waist to chest high range, and most of the energy comes from local short period wind swell. Conditions were stormy and messy. Not many good rides at the beach break upfront Blue Surf Sanctuary. Certainly better in the morning.

Wednesday September 24th 2014. Surf was good today in Santa Teresa. Waves were on the waist to chest high range. Day was rainy and there were some moderate side-shore winds blowing from time to time that would mess up the surf for a while. For the few keen surfers that went out despite the weather, there were some fun peaky rides down at the beach break upfront Blue Surf Sanctuary Hotel.

Monday September 22nd 2014. Good surf in Santa Teresa today. Waves were on the chest to head high range as the old SW swell continues to fade away. Morning conditions were a bit messy but there were some fun peaks at the beach break upfront Blue Surf Sanctuary. Waves were not rolling for long, just enough for a couple of turns holding very nice shape, then they would mush out or close out.
