Tamarindo Beach – Costa Rica

Surfing in Tamarindo

Costa Rica is well known for its miles and miles of beaches with amazing surf. Both the Caribbean and the Pacific produce great waves with top surf spots. Probably the most famous, yet remote surf spots, are Witch’s Rock and Ollie’s Point in the northern region of Guanacaste. Although difficult to reach by land there are several Tamarindo tour operators who offer weekly boat tours.
Tamarindo surfing was first made famous by the movie Endless Summer II. Tamarindo’s surf has consistent good swells and offshore winds, and is one of the more popular surfing destination within Costa Rica. During the dry season months the offshore winds blow hard shaping large waves.

There are many surf schools where beginners can take surf lessons. For those who do not wish to bring a surfboard with them, surfboard rentals are available. Tamarindo’s most popular surf spots are Pico Pequeno, Pico Grande and the river-mouth. Surf breaks are also found at Playa Grande and Playa Langosta.
