For many surfers located in the United States and Canada winter is coming, which means wet suits and cold ocean. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Take the classic example of our friend and resident legend, Robert August, who lives the Endless Summer year-round here in Tamarindo Beach. No matter what time of year in Playa Tamarindo there is sun, relaxed tropical vibes and of course, waves.
We want to give you something to look forward to during these cold winter months. Come January, you’re going to be begging the surf gods for board shorts and blue water perfection. So why not plan a winter surf trip to Costa Rica this February or March. It is a perfect half-way point to get you through the remaining winter months. And we found some great flights to Costa Rica you can check out below.

North Swells & Barrels:
You didn’t hear it from us, but Tamarindo loves the big Northwest swells this time of year. The combination of offshore winds with these perfectly angled swells allows for day after day of perfect conditions at some of our favorite local waves. Witch’s Rock, the Tamarindo Rivermouth and Playa Avellana are just a few of the waves that work so well during the winter.
For more information on these waves or others that we regularly surf during the winter months, take a look at our Local Surf Guide.
