Alejandro at Seafari Costa Rica - 9/6 - A funny weather in Tamarindo, some overcast days and some sunny mornings, small conditions as south swells are fading away, 1-2ft within the incoming tides, perfect for beginners to work their new skills. Usually for the green season we do not have many tourists, giving us room to play with long boards or SUP along the sand bars.
Eli at SurfingNosara.com - 9/7 - Beautiful sunny morning, with good waves and a little offshore wind. The size is chest high to shoulder high and sometimes a good set coming. The low tide is at 3:19 p.m and the High tide is at 9:00 a.m. Stop by Surfing Nosara office and ask for Brayan, Wentyn, or Eli, if you would like to book a private photo session or by any of our pictures. Pura Vida!
Eric at Kina Surf Shop - 9/6 - Eric from Kina surf, Friday morning. Waves- very small, clean SW/SSW swell combo. Glassy peaks, still rideable but pretty small. Should improve at the beachies once the morning high tide drops out.
Christina at Surf Inn Hermosa - 9/7 - New longer period SW swell filling in 3-5ft – Low tide mid afternoon – Overcast makes for a great day at the beach here in Playa Hermosa.

Steve at Jazzys River House - 9/7 -
Surf consensus this morning was 'pretty fun'. Small: 3' – 4', mostly peaks, mild offshore and quite clean and orderly. Long time between sets but overall good conditions and not very crowded. That was the higher tide session this morning. Too small for the Point or Dominicalito but Playa Hermosa South was reportedly small and fun as well.
Hotel Roca Verde is taking low season breaks from their usual Friday night live music depending on who is available. The food, however, is always good and the beach-front family atmosphere is always a treat.
