Surfing in Costa Rica
Saturday September 5th 2015. Surf was very good today in Santa Teresa. Waves were slightly overhead, with some sporadic bigger sets at exposed breaks. New SW swell keeps filling in and waves got bigger during the day. The beach break upfront Blue Surf Sanctuary was very good in the morning, when some clean open waves rolled in. Suck Rock was a bit lully and there was quite a lot of waiting between sets. Nevertheless, when it came it was worth the waiting. Some waves walled up and rolled down for over 300mts!
Thursday September 3rd 2015. Very good surf in Costa Rica today. Really fun waves at the beach break upfront our boutique hotel and at Suck Rock. New S swell reinforcing the existing SW swell and waves were on the head to slightly overhead high range. Another SW swell will start to move in tomorrow with more energy and much larger period. Swells arriving back to back this month maybe due to EL Nino weather phenomena. Conditions were predominantly clean almost all day and waves were open and sometimes even barreling over the sand bar.

Tuesday September 1st 2015. Very good surf in Costa Rica today. SW swell peaked but waves were not much bigger than yesterday. Surf was on the shoulder to head high range with occasional bigger sets. Clean conditions made the morning session a very fun one, with long, steep and playful waves rolling in at the beach break upfront Blue Surf Sanctuary. There were some solid rights staking up over the point break. It was lully and good sets were far apart, but when they came in it was worth the wait. The lower periods arriving tomorrow should make it more consistent.

Saturday August 29th 2015. Very good surf in Playa Santa Teresa and nearby breaks today. Waves were on the slightly overhead to overhead and a half size with quite a lot of power. Lot more people in the lineup as the word spread, yet Suck Rock, the point break upfront Blue Surf Sanctuary was very good and there were some very fun solid grinders rolling in. Swell is slowly easing and perhaps we’ll see a significant drop in the size tomorrow. Nevertheless, the direction of this swell is very good for most of the breaks in the area and we should get a few more really good sessions before it is gone.

Conditions were clean in the morning when tide was high and waves were opening. Some good fun waves were rolling in at the beach break upfront our surf school and hotel. Amazingly strange weather in the afternoon, with a storm moving out seas. Waves were still clean, but not too far from shore, a tornado was generated by the moving storm that didn’t last long enough to go get the camera…

Wednesday August 12th 2015. Epic surf at the south facing breaks near Santa Teresa today! S swell built in further and the beach break down from Blue Surf Sanctuary hotel was very strong with too much water moving around. However, the south facing point breaks near our surf camp were perfect. Waves there were smaller, yet in the head to overhead high range with bigger sets. Long pealing waves one after the other for almost all day! Some more exposed but less accessible breaks seen waves well double overhead.
