Adventure in Costa Rica - Part 1.

6-28-00
A new SW swell is filling in - the faces are about 6 to 8 feet with some good hollow sections. The weather is hot and beautiful. John O'Toole at Cabinas Las Olas (in Hermosa) has been very hospitable and a wealth of knowledge. We will be staying there, until this weekend when we leave for Mal Pais. This SW looks to be holding through about Friday.

With some well appreciated local knowledge from John O┤Toole of Cabinas Las Olas - a beaten, unpaved road led us to some Costa Rican perfection. This rarely surfed left hand point break is still a well kept secret, and no - its not Barranca. Waves today were in the 2 feet over head range with some plus sets. Just mechanical, easy, fun rides up to about a quarter of a mile. The SW is holding, and should begin fading by tomorrow. Mal Pais is our next stop.

We surfed an excellent A frame reef break with overhead waves - just North of Jaco. The Swell still had some West in it, but is turning more SSW and fading a bit.

7-1-00
We surfed hermosa right out in front of Cabinas Las Olas hotel with overhead thumpin waves still being caught. We then took the ferry over the the Nicoya Peninsula and took a pretty gnarly road to Mal Pais - where we are now.

7-2-00
We surfed out front at Mal Pais in the morning with what seemed to be a little more pulse from the South. In the afternoon we surfed a fun left point just around the bend from Moctezuma - about 20 minutes from Mal Pais.

7-3-00
We surfed a firing beach break at Santa Teresa with great hollow sections - seemed to be the last of the South swell though.

7-4-00
We surfed Santa Teresa beach break again at about chest high with some overhead sets - still super fun.

We are travelling to Playa Grande as we are in between swells. Thanks go out to Douglas of Mal Pais Surf Camp - check them out at www.malpaissurfcamp.com - great accomodations and great food.

7-7-00
We just got to Playa Grande with minimal swell - still some fun waist to chest high high tide only stuff. Small 14 second SW expected sometime tomorrow, with a bit of reinforcement mid next week. Lots of rain today, we drove down to Avellanas and Negra, Avellanas about waist to chest and kind of ugly looking - negra not working obviously. We may check out Roca Bruja with the beginning of this swell - I'm sure we'll get some waves out front at Playa Grande - we always do, but have to fight the rising crowds. Thanks go out to Las Tortugas Hotel as Louis has a great establishment running.
