Tropical Storm Nate left this wave in Dominical

Today's Date: Oct 17, 2017

The passage of the most devastating tropical storm in the history of Costa Rica, NATE, formed in spite of everything; a perfection of right wave that breaks before the mouth of the estuary in Playa Dominical, thanks to the accumulation of a new sandbar.

However, the version of the premises is that the depth of this is quite low, which is why the wipeout, becomes a consideration for those who decide to surf it with size.

"That wave was formed there recently. It made a sandbar after the storm and it was perfect, only it is very dry, you can not "wipe". Everyone leaves scraped, "said Erika Valverde, surfing the area.

"That wave comes out in the winter always, but this is the first time it looks perfect. Bankruptcy from the mouth, to Tortilla Flats (restaurant known in the area). This does not envy anything to Kelly Slater, it is very tubular, "he added.

Dominical WaveRider said: "The wave has been epic for a week, it changes a little every day and right now, the left is crazy. However, the right is the one that works best on the dry and filling tide. "


Tormenta Tropical Nate Dejó Esta Ola en Dominical

El paso de la tormenta tropical más devastadora en la historia de Costa Rica, NATE, formó a pesar de todo; una perfección de ola derecha que quiebra frente a la boca del estero en Playa Dominical, gracias a la acumulación de un nuevo banco de arena.

No obstante, la versión de los locales es que la profundidad de esta es cuantiosamente baja, razón por la cual el wipeout, pasa a ser un tema de consideración para los y las que se decidan a surfearla con tamaño.

“Esa ola se formó ahí hace poco. Se hizo un banco de arena después de la tormenta y quedó perfecta, solo que es muy seco, no se puede “wipear”. Todo el mundo sale raspado”, comentó Erika Valverde, surfeadora de la zona.

“Esa ola sale en el invierno siempre, pero esta es la primera vez que se ve perfecta. Quiebra desde la boca, hasta Tortilla Flats (restaurante conocido en la zona). Esta no le envidia nada a la de Kelly Slater, es muy tubular”, añadió.

Por su parte, la escuela de surf de la zona que documentó con estas primeras fotografías, Dominical WaveRider, comentaron lo siguiente: “La ola ha estado épica por una semana, cambia un poco cada día y justamente ahora, la izquierda es una locura. Sin embargo, la derecha es la que trabaja mejor en la marea seca y llenando”.
