Breakdown:

Caribbean Coast - Continued run of ENE swell (11 second period) pushing in sets 2 feet overhead through Monday and then dropping to overhead but still pumping all of the way to next weekend.

Pacific Coast - Small Southwest swell (15 second period) arriving Sunday with head high sets, but the Galapagos are blocking a lot of the bigger waves. Then it's quiet through the rest of the week with max waves at head high on the right tides.

The Long Shot - The next Southwest arrives on 7/9 with overhead sets and builds to 1-2 feet overhead by the 11th. The angle is such that the northern beaches will see the bigger sets. Also, keep an eye out for tropical storms forming off the northern Pacific coast.

* The forecast is made using 16 years of wave model and report analysis, but can't be accurate 100% of the time. To do your own, use our links.

Playa Grande

Hotel Las Tortugas

Louis at Hotel Las Tortugas

6/25 - Conditions with perfect off-shores are great for the small surf we are enjoying here in Playa Grande. The bigger sets are head high and very clean and makable. So far the crowd has been light but we are expecting more surfers as the waves drop in size and only Playa Grande has good surf in our area. Costa Rica’s “spring" break is about to begin and Tamarindo, Flamingo, and Playa Grande should be popular. The water drought is becoming more severe so be prepared to drink beer instead.

Tamarindo

Seafari Costa Rica

Alejandro at Seafari Costa Rica

6/24 - Tamarindo has been fun early morning sessions with glassy and clean waves 1-3ft in the best sets, off shore winds are back and stay for the whole day, giving some good times in the sunset sessions at the river mouth. Its been crowded by schools, hope they all are teaching surf etiquette and safety tips so we all have fun when in the water.

Langosta got the best of this SW swell, 2-4ft within the incoming tides, off shore its on and blue sky gets every body out, been partially crowded with more experienced surfers and more critical waves.

ADIT organize the new cleaning day at Oneida Park. Please bring gloves and tras bags.Saturday 27th from 8am to 12am.Please help us sharing this event between your contacts and friends. Contact us for further details info.seafaricr@gmail.com.

6/26 -Morning high tide sessions have improved with size holding around head high. Conditions have been fairly clean with well formed peaks and strong offshore breezes. Crowds light. Mid-day lower tides have been inconsistent but often decent conditions right through low tide.   Dominicalito and Playa Hermosa South have maintained fun conditions - waves smaller and mellower than Dominical but crowds smaller as well. Friday night at Hotel Roca Verde find Ben Jammin' and the Howlers featuring Nancy Buchan on electric fiddle keeping the place hopping and a nice addition to the excellent dinner menu - great pizza and fresh fish are some of the highlights.
