South Costa Rica Surf Report & Forecast

Surf Forecast Brief Outlook:  As the old SSW energy eases, a new SSW swell (215-195°) will build in over Thursday, maintaining surf in the waist-chest occasional shoulder high zone at the better exposures. Watch for occasional sets to hit head high+ before dark at standouts. The new swell tops out for Friday, offering chest-head high surf at many spots with good exposure, and occasional sets running 1-2 feet overhead at standouts, especially during the more favorable tide windows. Select magnets will likely see occasional plus sets each day during the best tides.  Most areas will see a typical diurnal wind pattern through the next couple days. Look for calm to very light/variable to locally light offshore wind for the early to mid mornings (depending on the specific spot), before a moderate onshore seabreeze gradually develops over the late morning hours and into each afternoon. Good chance for the wind to back off in the evenings for a glassoff at many locations before dark, especially the more sheltered/tucked away spots. Most of the region will see partly cloudy/sunny skies each day. However, there will be occasional passing showers and T-storms scattered about, especially offshore. Keep in mind that passing or nearby showers and thunderstorms can temporarily affect/change local wind conditions.Check the premium forecast for the extended outlook!
