If you’re not a beginning surfer and you want a little more challenge in your surfing life, you can check out the main break at Playa Langosta. A short drive or a 20 walk will get you there on the only road from Tamarindo, and once you get to the beach you’ll have to walk down to the river mouth, but it can be worth it. Langosta has the waves you’re looking for if you’ve been surfing for a while. There are multiple peaks, but the two I’ll describe here are Racetrack, and the Main Rivermouth Peak. Racetrack is on the right side of the river mouth (if you’re looking out from the shore) and is named so because of the immediate dilemma that surfers are faced with. Racetrack is a wave that goes to the right, but just inside the spot where you would be dropping in, is a nice shiny jagged cluster of rocks. Once you drop in, you’ll have to “race” down the line to get past those rocks. Not as dangerous as it sounds, but there is always that present danger. The main river mouth peak to the left is much safer, thankfully, but not less challenging. It’s a heavy peak that moves back and forth, and it does get pretty big from time to time. It can be a lot of fun, with both lefts and rights, but it can also get a bit competitive when there are a lot of surfers. Langosta works any time between mid and high tide. Well folks, there you have it. You should now have all the knowledge you need to make an informed decision as to where you’re going to go surf. Have fun, be safe, and always remember to look both ways before you drop in on a wave. Happy surfing!
