Costa Rica News – (Surf Report July 25th and July 26th) – We are going to give you the surf forecast for Costa Rica and we have our new Model of the Week. The Pacific side this weekend is great for surfers looking to get out in some good size learning waves and should be good for the surf tournament in Playa Hermosa. The Caribbean side is boasting some sets over 1 meter overhead. We have also added surf video from Playa Hermosa, Costa Rica. Brought to you by The Costa Rica Surf Zone
