Probably going rent a board in jaco, you gotta drive by it on the way there and back right???
unless you take the highway of death ???


Go to The Back Yard and ask for "Fat Boy" Mike price. He shapes there and may have rentals. He's got a house in Krypt Rd. Tell him the guy who put his ceiling fan in suggested you find him. If he's dead, don't tell me.

LoL on the above post. Reads like a "In Search of Captain Zero" book.

Never made it to Pavones last week. But the surf was fairly big where I surfed. Costa Rica is still a surf destination. Go!

I didn't go either. my buddy told me about Pan Dulce, which would be perfect for the kids. he was right. Both my kids caught waves so long they were out of sight. The Matapalo side was awesome, really , really in the jungle.

The OSA is pretty incredible. I stayed in Dominical. A certain point break there was working when it got big. Didn't feel like making the drive. I did see photos/vid from last week and it looked great on the southern points.

Ironically my best surf session was at jaco beach the morning before I flew out. Early morning, the swell had dropped so Jaco was only 4 foot'ish, but oh so fun. Glassy and holding up pretty good. Plus, super easy short paddle out, unlike dominical that was hellish' paddle and drift mania.

There used to be a hotel just north of Esterios, and south of Jaco. One had to know the turn off through a field to get to it. It had a giant wall of hardened lava jutting out a hundred yards or more and lefts just pealed for too long, considering the walk back. What's the name of the left North of Jaco and South of puntarenas?

There are a few of them. Boca Barranca is the most popular, Guacalillo is big but dirty water, and some other harder to reach spots.

That's the one. I was heading to Mal Pais and saw 1 guy out there, once. I thought I had time for a wave there before the ferry left. Getting out and catching the wave took a few minutes. I caught it across the cove and had a long walk back through sketchy vegetation. I miss the boat but was well worth it.
