Caribbean - Knee high surf is expected through late Saturday and then Sunday a ENE swell arrives (3 feet at 9 seconds) which pushes in waist to chest high surf. It will stick around through Tuesday, but afterward leaves more knee high waves.
Pacific - Currently there is a SSW swell (3 feet at 14 seconds) pushing in chest to head high surf with a rare overhead set. It drops slowly through the weekend down to waist to chest. Then on Tuesday a new SSW swell arrives that reaches 4.8 feet at 14 seconds by Thursday so expect overhead surf with sets 2 feet overhead.

Luis at Manuel Antonio Surf School - 11/9 - Greetings from Manuel Antonio Surf School, the waves in Manuel Antonio have been great these days wave height is around 4 to 6 feet and the conditions are good this week with almost no riptides, high tides and rains make Manuel Antonio Beach a little choppy but we still have some good waves coming down, the best spot to surf this weekend in Manuel Antonio is Playitas beach.
Steve at Jazzys River House - 11/7 - Five straight days of steady rain left us with some pretty ragged surf. High tide morning session today featured 5-6' peaks with an occasional overhead bomb. Muddy, debris filled water was discouraging and no one has paddled out for nearly a week. Inside was a whirlpool of crosswaves, mud and logs. Interesting but not inviting. First partial clearing today with some welcome blue sky and bright sun. Afternoon session yesterday at Playa Hermosa South was 4-5' with decent post-storm conditions and a small crowd. Dominicalito was smaller but also decent. No Point action worth noting.
