The South Swells Have Arrived!
For all of you surfers out there, this is the time of the year to think about heading down to Costa Rica to catch some epic waves. Starting in late March or early April, the southern hemisphere starts to produce a lot of wave activity. These “south swells” travel thousands of miles across the ocean until they finally reach our stretch of coastline.
The breaks of Santa Teresa, Mal Pais, and the surrounding areas really come alive with these south swells. There are reef breaks and point breaks that are flat for 6 months and then all of sudden these surf spots begin to work. Mal Pais and Santa Teresa offer all types of waves depending on the swell size and direction. You will find everything from soft beach breaks for beginners to fast hollow reef breaks for advanced surfers. As always, the best plan of attack is to get some local knowledge so contact us if you’re looking to come down on a surf trip.
