Alejandro at Seafari Costa Rica

7/28 - With a new swell showing up, there is good surf even in low tides, morning sessions with 1-3ft at the River mouth had been really fun, winds are blowing off shore until noon, then again in the mid afternoon, crowed but enough waves for all.

Playa Langosta got the best of the last South swell, mid lo tides were better to catch some 2-4ft fast, clean and long rides; more crowded than usual probably due the summer vacations.

Cabana Blanca its run by new owners/ neighbors in Tamarindo, they have a great buffet lunch for $10 Monday to Friday, Italian food at its best.

7/31 - Mixed conditions lately with overhead surf at higher tides. Due to illegal and highly destructive work by heavy equipment at our river mouth and estuary our sandbars, beach profile and surf conditions have altered drastically since the government began it's ill-advised project last March. Surfing and swimming conditions have been unusual and erratic. Currently we have overhead waves, mostly rough and closed out at all tide levels. Some windows at all tide levels have cleaned up with nice shoulders and even some shapely peaks offering good sessions with small crowds. With Dominical erratic and irregular Hermosa South and Dominicalito have offered a decent alternative.

The newly formed 'Costa Ballena Lifeguards' has scheduled a lifeguard party for August 29th at 'Patron's' restaurant in Dominical. More details next week. Meanwhile 'Ben Jammin' and the Howlers with electric fiddler Nancy Buchan provide hot rock and roll originals and covers each Friday night along with great food at Hotel Roca Verde in Dominical.
