Central Costa Rica Surf Report & Forecast

Surf Forecast Brief Outlook: Overlapping SSW swells build in over the weekend, topping out by Sunday afternoon and holding strong through Monday. Expect overhead surf on Saturday at many exposures, which increases to well overhead for Sun/Mon. Standout spots will offer sets in the double to triple overhead zone over Sun/Mon, with select big-wave spots that can handle it seeing even larger sets. Most areas will see a typical diurnal wind pattern through the next couple days; calm to very light/variable to locally light-moderate 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 into the evenings for a glassoff for 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. The new/solid SSW swell that shows over the next few days will start to ease by Tuesday the 5th, then continuing to slowly fade thereafter. More SPAC swell due for May 9th-14th+.
