There were some really fun little waves breaking today. In Tamarindo it was SMALL, only about waist high, but down at the other end of the bay it was a little bigger with some chest high + sets coming in at times. The winds were awesome, staying light offshore [&hellip post

Friday AM surf report – June 29, 2012

Friday morning swell forecast update

I woke up early this morning and drive down the coast looking for some waves. Avellanas was waist high, with some little peaks that looked like fun. Further south I checked out Playa Negra and it wasn’t even breaking. I came up to Tamarindo after that, where I found clean waves in the thigh-to-waist high range, pretty much only surfable on a longboard. Winds were offshore yesterday, and now today they have shifted onshore but only very lightly. It is sunny, warm, and the water is super clear. Despite the lack of swell it is a perfect time to grab [&hellip post

Hey there Tamarindo! The surf in the Tamarindo area the past 3 days has been small but fun, here are a few pics of the Tamarindo Rivermouth doing its thing on low tide today:         The winds should stop blowing onshore after today. With any luck, we’ll start seeing more offshore wind conditions as is typical in early July. Wave size has been a little small here in Tamarindo. Expect bigger surf at Playa Grande, Marbella, and Witch’s Rock. Its looking like we’ll have a big swell heading our way over the next 5-7 days, and it [&hellip post

Playa Avellanas Surf Report – Friday morning June 22nd 2012

June 22.Still007

There was a little bit of surf early this morning before the tide dropped out.  These photos are from around 7am in Playa Avellanas, with local surfers Paco and Trey getting a few nice ones despite the drop in size.  In Tamarindo the wind was on it from daybreak and it wasn’t very good.  These winds have been pretty strong the last few days, which is very unseasonal.  The surf forecast looks like we’re going to continue to get some poor winds, so try to wake up early and hit the beachbreaks as the early AM high tide creeps up [&hellip post

Hola Tamarindo and the rest of the surfing world.  Yes, the wind is onshore, but we still have some waves.  This afternoon the high tide is bringing a few sets in the stomach to chest high range at best.  Its pretty junky, but you can still get a couple decent rides.
