Costa Rican Surf Trips

Perfect surf year round
With predictable surf year round you can visit at anytime and all you need is a pair of boardies. The West coast is home to perfect barrels and beach breaks with the bigger southern swells arriving in April - October, if you’re too busy during these months then don’t stress, the rugged and beautiful Pacific coast will keep you ripping from November all the way through to March.
The best surf can be found in popular zones such as Golfo De Nicoya, Guanacaste or Mal Pais with its peeling pointbreaks and idyllic scenery. Limon on the Caribbean side is host to 2ft breaks ideal for beginners but is also known to bring in the big boys – 12 footers for the pros, here you will find all opportunities for coastal exploration and maybe even some rivermouth waves if you know where to look. Guanacaste has consistent swells with good offshore and clean breaks suitable for beginners and intermediates. Here the sunshine and stunning scenery during the dry season make it a surfer’s paradise with endless options rolling in from the north and south.
