This is Toro from Blue Surf Adventures Costa Rica Surf School with your Santa Teresa Surf Report for this week. This is the surf report for Santa Teresa and nearby breaks Playa Hermosa, Playa Carmen and Mal Pais, located in the South Nicoya Peninsula in the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica.
During the week of June 19th / June 26th, Costa Rica Surf was excellent and very big. Few times a year Costa Rica Surf gets as big as it was these days. Waves were reaching triple overhead at the most exposed breaks with some good 15 to 20 foot faces. Suck Rock, the point break upfront Blue Surf Sanctuary hotel in Santa Teresa was working perfect for almost all week. Solid, clean waves rolled in with barrels that could easily hide a car! Conditions were also helping the surf with many glassy mornings and some days holding clean through out the day. There were not many surfers out, probably due to the huge amount of water moving around. Paddle out was tough and many preferred to drive South to the more sheltered breaks that were lot more user friendly. The Southern breaks near Cabuya and Tambor only got the energy that was able to wrap around the Cabo Blanco point at the tip of the Nicoya peninsula. Some point breaks there were going off with shoulder to head high waves rolling for 200 yards. Nevertheless the show was happening upfront Blue Surf Sanctuary Hotel at the point break. You could feel the sand vibrating with each bomb downloading it’s weight on the reef.
Swell started filling in slowly on Monday and Tuesday, with waves reaching overhead high to overhead and a half. Conditions were good and although there were some nuggets over the rocks, the best peak that was working on these days was at the beach break upfront Blue Surf Sanctuary Hotel and Costa Rica Surf Camp.
Wednesday got big. Very big. Double overhead plus sets were rolling over the reef early in the morning. Conditions were a bit messy and there was a lot of water moving around. Later conditions glassed out and surf went epic. The right handed point break upfront Blue Surf Sanctuary Hotel and Costa Rica Surf Camp was firing bombs that will roll open for long while. Very clean and playful canvas on the wave face was reaching the 15 to 20 foot tall range by noon.
Costa Rica Surf seemed to linger a bit on Thursday and the waves behind the rock upfront Blue Surf Sanctuary Hotel and Costa Rica Surf Camp got a bit more user friendly. Still some bombs would roll in more sporadically. Clean conditions and lots of first class rides!
New reinforcement of the swell put the waves back on the double to triple overhead on Friday. Very clean conditions and spectacular waves rolling in at the break upfront Blue Surf Sanctuary Hotel and Costa Rica Surf Camp
Swell slowly started fading over the weekend with still some good left overs and very fun surf.
