Costa Rica Picture of the Day – Each day the Costa Rican Times will be including a picture from around Costa Rica to see the natural beauty and amazing things that we get to see each day in the land of the Pura Vida.
Have you hit the waves and tried surfing in Costa Rica?
The Playa Jaco and Playa Hermosa areas of Costa Rica on the Central Pacific Coast are world renown for their great waves for both beginners and experienced surfers.
The first time I paddled out in the heavy waves of Playa Hermosa it was a bit frustrating as I was pounded repeatedly until I went in and decided to try it out in Jaco to have a little easier time getting past the break.
There are pretty much two ways to dismount your board after a ride, under or over the wave. This high flying dismount was shot by Scott Alexander.
