Friday January 16th 2015. Surf was good today in Santa Teresa. Waves were on the chest to shoulder high range as the old swell starts to fade away. There were quite a few waves closing out at the beach break upfront Blue Surf Sanctuary this morning, but every now and then a very good, hollow wave would come in. Santa Teresa surf conditions were clean in the morning but a bit choppy in the afternoon as a strong rain was building up. A bit strange to get heavy rain this time of the year, but it is very welcomed!

Wednesday January 14th 2015. Surf was good today in Santa Teresa beach. Waves were on the chest to head high range with some bigger sets at exposed breaks. The beach break upfront our Santa Teresa hotel was very fun in the morning. A very strong wind blew onshore at noon and spoiled a bit the afternoon session. However, there were still some fun rides out there. New energy moved in from the west and Suck Rock started throwing some barrels from time to time!

Tuesday January 13th 2015. Surf was very good today in Santa Teresa. Waves were on the shoulder to head high range with some bigger sets at exposed breaks. Very clean conditions in the early morning and late afternoon, and quite windy and choppy at midday. Clear skies in the morning. And, believe it or not, we had a slight rain in the late afternoon right before sunset. Not much water fell but still enough to get the road wet! Some fun and hollow waves rolled in at the beach break upfront Blue Surf Sanctuary hotel for a very fun sunset session!

Saturday Jan 10th 2015. Good surf conditions in Santa Teresa today. Waves were on the waist high range in the morning and reaching slightly overhead on the late afternoon as the new S-SSW swell started to build in. Forerunners were getting more consistent throughout the day. Conditions were clean in the early morning, although hot and a bit cloudy, and back again during the last hour of sunlight. After midday the side shore wind calmed down. Some fun waves rolled in at the beach break upfront Blue Surf Sanctuary and we are expecting better conditions tomorrow morning!

Sunday January 4th 2015. Surf was fair today in Santa Teresa. Waves were on the knee to waist high range. They were very hollow and fast in the morning, with the low tide at the beach break upfront Blue Surf Sanctuary and down at Playa Hermosa not much better. Surf got more open near midday hours, then a light onshore wind picked up. Since the waves were small the surf got spoiled until late afternoon when it cleaned up again.

Saturday December 27th 2014. Surf was good today at Santa Teresa beach. Waves were on the chest to shoulder high range with a few bigger sets. 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.

Clean and glassy conditions in the morning and afternoon. Slightly choppy at midday hours. The beach break upfront Blue Surf Sanctuary was very fun all day, and a bit hollower with the low tide in the morning, and mushier with the high tide in the afternoon. The point break started to work from time to time. There were long lulls between sets at Suck Rock, but there were some little nuggets rolling over the rock that made it worth the waiting!

Saturday December 20th 2014. Good surfing today in Santa Teresa. Swell held it’s energy and waves were on the shoulder to head high range with a few bigger sets. Conditions were clean but waves were a bit messier than they had been the past few days. Many would close out or break too fast to be ridden. However, there where still many fun rides and some amazing tube rides at the beach break upfront Blue Surf Sanctuary. W and SSW swell combo builds in further tomorrow and waves might get slightly bigger.

Thursday December 18th 2014. Super tubos at the beach break upfront Blue Surf Sanctuary! Very good surf in Santa Teresa Costa Rica today. Waves were on the chest high range with some bigger sets. Conditions were nice and clean all day long, although from time to time the beach break would get a bit fast and close out. The sunset session was perfect just a few steps from our surf camp. Hollow clean barrels would peal off on our sand bar, which has been collecting sand through the S swell season!

Monday December 15th 2014. Very good surf today at Santa Teresa beach. The waves were on the head high range on the sets. The mixing of two swells–the old one from the SSW and the new one from the NW–made nice peaky conditions at the beach break upfront Blue Surf Sanctuary. Clean and glassy water in the morning and back again in the late afternoon.

Waves were in the chest to shoulder high range, with some bigger sets reaching slightly overhead faces in the late afternoon. Good and clean conditions through most of the day made for a very fun session in the late afternoon at the beach break upfront our Santa Teresa surf school. A thunder storm moved in at the end of the day but the rain didn’t last long. Hopefully the surf will not get spoiled tomorrow morning by this weather.
