10/14 - The swell size is perfect for Playa Grande - a little overhead on the better sets.  However, the weather conditions are still unpredictable with some full blown rainy season days and blown out waves.  

There are ocassional good sessions mixed in.  These are becoming more prevalent as we move out of the wet season.  Watch the weather reports and look for morning high tides.

Tamarindo

Seafari Costa Rica

Alejandro at Seafari Costa Rica

10/14 - Rainy season took over Tamarindo and the north pacific coast, shifty winds, chopy ocean and murky water is the usual when we get a tropical low pressure system after another, do not get me wrong, We Do Need this water for the coming soon dry season, so its a bless that keeps us out of the water few days of the week. 

Playa Negra is not affected so bad, but the road to get there is very affected, waves and water are cleanner than other breaks, because the estuary is not on the same area whre the wave breaks, holding an average 2-3ft on the best sets this point break can and does get crowded. Winds do switch in the mid mornings along the the higher posibility of rain.

“Try out Surfing” is an entry level class that can be held privately, or in a group. Participants can be sure at all times that they will be supervised by a capable and encouraging instructor, in one of the safest and most beautiful places for beginners to learn, Tamarindo beach, Costa Rica. New restaurant El Oasis in Playa Grande.

Steve Fergus at Jazzys River House

10/13 -Outreach Surf Report from Santa Barbara California:  'Coal Sands Beach' today had 1' - 2' waves - well formed, slightly peaky with equal rights and lefts.  Small and not consistent but fairly clean when the wind slows.  Small mid-tide crowd.  Mostly longboarders.  Blue skies and bright sun.  

Hotel Roca Verde is the live music spot on Thursday featuring Dave Bohn with his popular selection of oldies.  Come for dinner and request your favorite tunes.  Check www.jazzysriverhouse.com for low season deals and specials.  Or come by and visit Ruby in her home studio/gallery.  View her latest fine art creations and ask about her popular class.  See Steve if you are troubled with aches and pains as his East/West massage therapy can be most helpful.  Steve also teaches surfing and sells and rents boards.  See Steve also for individual yoga instruction.
