Larry at Playa Negra Realty

7/22 - ​​Hope you are all well. There is a massive South swell on the rise. This morning, early, conditions should easily overhead at the standouts. Most of the area South swell spots require a high tide. High tide is early all week long. The next couple of days should easily have double overhead waves. This swell drops off and another will begin.​​

Wind conditions will continue to be unseasonably offshore. There is always the distinct possibility that winds will come onshore by midday. Get out there as early as possible to take advantage of the high tide/good wind in the mornings.​

Don't forget to get a SalveMonos T, mug, or sticker at Azul Profundo Boutique or Luna Llena Hotel in Tamarindo. All proceeds go towards helping Howler Monkey's in the area. Thanks and be safe.​

7/22 - Classic high tide conditions this morning. Well overhead with clean shape and lines. Not many peaks but plenty of fast thick shoulders and a strong offshore. Blue sky, overall great conditions and a small crowd. Dominical tops the list of local spots as usual but Playa Hermosa South has been clean and fun lately and Dominicalito has had some good high tide sessions as well. With the increase in size the Point could be working today.

Last weeks' Costa Ballena Lifeguard party at the Roadhouse in Uvita was a success with a big crowd and good food and fun music thanks to Kenny & Chuck. This Friday night catch Ben Jammin' and the Howlers with Nancy Buchan on electric fiddle to put some spirit into your evening of fine food and music at Hotel Roca Verde.
