Costa Rica Surf Report July 29th, 2013 – The Costa Rican Times is entering surf reporting for everyone that want’s to experience one of the best surf destinations in the world. We are starting with Playa Hermosa. We will give a daily forecast a day in advance and a video from the morning sets.
Costa Rica’s Playa Hermosa 7km long black sand beach break at Hermosa is another version of Mexico’s Puerto Escondido with less shore break drama but enough power and rips to scare on double overhead days when closeouts rule. Ultra reliable, favors high tides.
MONDAY: A solid dose of fresh SW-SSW groundswell will continue to build in on Monday with increasing surf through the day. This swell tops out Monday night.
WEATHER/WIND: Look for calm to light/variable offshore wind for the early mornings, with a moderate onshore SW-WSW sea breeze developing over the mid to late mornings and into each afternoon. Northernmost CR will see light to moderate offshores in the mornings. NOTE – Passing or nearby showers and thunderstorms can temporarily affect/change local wind conditions.
