Cannot be more excited. We get there Tuesday and leave following Monday. Haven't paddled out in well over a month. Forecast looks big to start. The board choices, the rum choices, the break choices, the food choices and even the nap in the hammock choices. So choice.

We're in Santa Teresa now. Staying until Friday. Haven't been here in a few years. The current swell is a little wonky but have been able to get plenty of waves. Lots of new little restaurants along the road. This is still my favorite part of the world.

It's changed a lot. I think there are four supermercados now. Still, suck rock behind roca mar is one of the greatest waves in the world to me.

I used to camp at Playa Carmen back in the day. Has anyone met the rich German Drunken Andreas Schneider? He had some cabinas north of the liquor store but south of the ditch. fathered a son, Sebastian, who lives north by the grocery store. I helped him out back in the day and he gave me a house. He introduced me to a king pin was was building me a technical school. Maruchu Ramirez. Of course I sure it's changed drastically since 05. I check google earth a lot and the place looks like Va Beach.

Yep fun barrel at high tide, low tide watch out for the "spine". Stayed at Casa Cecelia on the beach just south of suck rock. Highly recommend that place to anyone going.

This is my favorite spot in ST. It's south of the main road a 1/4 mile. Available at low tide. All sort of critters. The last time in it, as I was taking this pic, I saw a yellow "eel". When I got to a yellow bellied sea snake.

That's funny. Casa Cecelia's don has moved on to other endeavors in town. I see him there still.

On your way to Puntrenas, you should try to find Guacalillio. It's a cove like break where one can get out by jumping off a cliff. It's in between Tico Tico and the ferry. If any of that is still there.

I surfed it once. It was very good. I tried and failed to find three times since. Got very lost with the gps.

I missed the turn to go up to the top of the cliff and ended up at a dead end at a rivermouth. I thought it was Tarcoles since the other rivers weren't flowing yet. We turned around there and I saw a elevated ramp a few meters in and went to investigate. I went from the river and way into the brush that I didn't see where it ended. When the wind stopped blowing, the clacking of the palm frons(?) stopped and I heard drumming and chanting. There was a big azz croc floating at the river end. I started thinking Juju. On the way out, people were lined up along the road giving us stinkeye.

Funny you mention that croc. The one hanging out there on the time I did make it there was at least 15 feet. There were some ticos surfing there and we paddled out because they were there and we hadn't seen that croc yet. They were pretty indifferent to him. I was not.

One came out on me and a Tico from the river that feeds the N side. I look at the Tico and he shrugs. Told me "He lives here".

I camped up there for a couple days. You can walk along base at low tide. There was a hole going inside and I tried to get a mouthy Canadian to crawl in there because there was something glowing like a TV screen way back it it.
The wall face made me think Pyroclastic flow. It looked like there were burnt rocks encased cement.

I was catching the left right next to upwelling rock pile. A very good wave. Tomorrow it's on. I am going to try to get some drone footage. Forecast looks good.
