Caribbean Coast - East swell keeps the surf in the chest high range through Wednesday morning, and then drops to waist high by Friday and then knee high by Sunday. Not much relief on the radar.
Pacific Coast - A SSW swell arrives Wednesday pushing waves up to 1 foot overhead but not lasting more than a day. What follows is five days of small surf from the Southwest, not getting over head high at the higher tides.
The Long Shot - The next big surf sesh will arrive from the straight South on the 21st and max on the 23rd with sets reaching 2-3 feet overhead. Some breaks will not get big due to the angle but other point breaks will be firing.

6/8 - This is a big butt swell. A few daredevils have actually paddled out and caught a few. Yesterday some tow-in guys were dropping into 15 plus monster waves on the outside reefs.
A hand full of surfers enjoyed the head high plus waves. Unfortunately the Florida-like weather never allowed the surf to completely smooth over and conditions have been bumpy. There are OK waves at the protected breaks in Tamarindo but it is a healthy hike after crossing the estuary. We'll move into morning surf in a few days as the swell drops back to normal.
At the same time the weather reports look encouraging for off-shore conditions as we begin our "little summer" of off-shore winds. Watch the weather reports for the off-shore wind.
6/7 - We are enjoying a run of some of the largest swell this area has seen in years. The long periods are bringing waves to life that are almost never seen. In fact, many spots are closed out or too difficult to access. This leaves a few spots for the brave hearted.
This big swell should begin to drop down on Saturday but will likely still be double overhead through Sunday for standout locations. The swell should last with good waves through Thursday. The absolutely best bet is to get out there early. Persistant and daily onshores have been occurring lately from mid to early morning.
6/9 - Head high and a little mixed up this Sunday morning. Yesterday’s evening session was the best of this swell offering clean conditions at a few feet overhead.
The size is definitely dropping and the conditions aren’t looking that great early morning. Matt Vaughan captured most of the swell at our local Nosara beaches.
Our staff photographer Alfredo Barquero who also works for CNS (professional circuit of surf in costa rica) is in Nicaragua for the Billabong ISA Junior Championships held at Santana (http://isawjsc.com) . Keep posted for some great free surfing photos from him.
6/14 - Fun surf the last few days with good tides and favorable winds and fun shoulder to overhead surf. We’ve had rain but we like the rain and it's so nice to not get fried by the tropic sun all day long.
Sunny am today and it's a bit cloudy now but no rain yet. Here's hoping for the glass off!
Just got some new sticks in for surf season and we as usual have real nice discount rack to move the last models out so if you need a board of quality proudly built and distributed then just come on by and see us! Tuanis Chuck and the CREW at WOW SURF ! Oh by the way Happy Surfing !
