Central Costa Rica Surf Report & Forecast

Surf Forecast Brief Outlook: SSW swell eases with chest-head high surf at the better exposed breaks. Standout spots see sets running a bit overhead. Very long period forerunners of new SSW swell will steadily build through the day. Look for the surf to build into the overhead range for many breaks through the afternoon/evening hours. Standout deepwater spots that can really focus the swell will see well overhead to double overhead+ surf by sundown. For most areas, look for light/variable wind for the early mornings. Then a moderate SW seabreeze develops over the morning hours and into each afternoon. Possible evening glassoff for some areas before dark. NOTE - Passing showers or thunderstorms can temporarily affect/change local wind conditions. Solid SSW swell peaks on Saturday and continues Sunday. Check the full premium forecast for more details and the longer range outlook.
