This is Toro from Blue Surf Adventures Costa Rica Surf School with your Santa Teresa Surf Camp 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.
This past week, Aug 29 th / September 4th, surf was very good in Santa Teresa. Mix of SSW swells kept the surf on a fun size with waves ranging from shoulder to a little overhead size. Conditions were good and fairly clean. The beach break upfront Blue Surf Sanctuary Surf Camp was working very well and there were lots of fun waves rolling in.
Monday: New long period SSW swell slowly filling in and waves ranged shoulder to head height. Clean conditions in the morning and very good surf at nearby point and reef breaks. South facing point breaks as Mar Azul and Cabuya were mellow but very fun and user friendly. Sunset reef was hollow and had many spitting barrels. The beach break upfront Blue Surf Sanctuary Surf Camp was also working well and lots of fun waves rolled in. Afternoon got some onshore wind and the surf turned messy.
Tuesday: Easing SSW swell and mid to short period southerly swell. Generally mixed up waist-shoulder high surf at exposures, while standouts hit head high. Conditions were good in the morning and The beach break down at la lora, 10 min walk South from Blue Surf Sanctuary Santa Teresa Surf Camp, was very good with some clean barrels over the sand bar.
Wednesday:Old SSW swell and new, SSW swell forerunners fill in all day with some short period swell still mixing in. Slower start with the surf in the thigh-waist-chest high range at exposures through the morning, with sets to shoulder high at top breaks in PM. Conditions were messy and unorganized with lots of side waves and shifting peaks. Probably due to the strong storm last night.
Thursday: New SSW swell fills in further as short period southerly swell likely continues. Look for waist-chest-shoulder high surf at exposures, while standout spots see sets head high range. Conditions were rough and messy in the morning while a black storm was moving in. weather cleaned up in the afternoon
Friday: Very good surfing at our Santa Teresa Surf Camp today.
Saturday: Modest SSW southern hemi swell continues as shorter period southerly windswell mixes in. Look for mainly waist-head high surf at good exposures, while standout spots hit a little overhead on the best sets/peaks.
