Surf Report for Sunday, August 28th 2011



Saturday was a a pretty rough day here in Tamarindo.  The winds were racing onshore in an apparent effort to get over and join the hurricane over on the Atlantic side.  The water stayed pretty choppy for most of the day and the waves stayed close together with very little organization.

Today started about the same with onshore winds and a lot of chop in the water.  The waves did clean up a bit and managed some organization in the late morning with the tide coming in.  They were mostly in the waist high range.

In the early afternoon the winds started moving around quit a bit, and the water cleaned up considerably.  Once the wind finally managed to kick all the way around and stay offshore the waves took on much better shape with a few lefts and rights staying open for some long rides.  The currents were pretty strong pulling over to the River Mouth while the tide was still coming in.

Most swell forecasts are still predicting the swell to hit late Wednesday and stick around for a few days.  We´ll most likely still see the waves drop slightly before the swell.  With the water cleaning up there will hopefully be some solid waist to chest to get us warmed up for the head high plus that´s on it´s way!

Low at 8:33am/8:53pm
