Costa Rica Surf Report July 3rd, 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.
WEDNESDAY: New SW shifting SSW swell peaks with waist-shoulder-head high waves at well exposed spots, as standouts see better sets. That surf slowly eases on Wednesday.
WEATHER/WIND: Look for calm to very light/variable to locally light offshore wind for the early mornings, with a light to moderate onshore SW sea-breeze developing over the mid to late mornings and into each afternoon. NOTE – Passing or nearby showers and thunderstorms can temporarily affect/change local wind conditions.
