Tomorrow is the first morning for a decent daybreak session as the tides move back to our morning window.  Today there were fun, uncrowded, head high waves toward the evening as the shoulders glassed off.  

This week could be really good as the “Indian Summer" moves in with less rain and more off shores.  

If you want to help protect the turtles and don’t come by motor boat to Grande and avoid the motor boat tours in the estuary to conserve the salt water forest in the park.

Bring insect repellant, sun screen, and rain gear - a girlfriend/boyfriend wouldn’t hurt.

Take the ferry boat to Tamarindo and avoid the toothy wildlife.

Super fun South swell combo, perfect for Tamarindo and everybody here are stoked with the good waves, 2-3ft solid, clean, long rides all along the beach, nice lil breeze in the mornings and light SW wind in the afternoon. very busy line up on the inside and the point breaks, but no problem since the time among sets is fairly short. Over cast days and really big tides moving in and out, be aware of the currents and other surfers specially on the inside, where the beginers practice.

Avellana's point breaks are on fire 4-5ft and Lil Hawaii seen some 6-7ft pretty solid swell, some what stormy due the short period among waves and the 3 different angles of South the swell is coming from. Not so busy for what this waves are looking so good, but I guess is because the direction activates all the best breaks around here.

If you shop at AutoMercado & are not saving the stickers for yourself, please ask for them anyway & bring them to Jaime Peligro book store. We are trying to donate them to the schools in the community. Thanks in advance!
