Description:

Went to surf at the "Tree" in Playa Hermosa, Costa Rica at 6:00 AM. The tide was going to low tide, which was at 10:00, so the waves were getting faster and more hollow as closeouts. I stayed out there until I got a descent ride to satisfy the hunger I have to ride nice line. Caught a good fast left did a maneuver and got in the barrel to get everything I could out of it. After that there wasn't much to get so headed out and was walking to leave when a aquaintance that I hung out with a couple times came up to me. It was another surfer named Magoo (for some reason) and he's mentioned being in the WQS in the past. "Dude, you were surfing with some crocs out there man. I was like this kid is crazy. You were right next to them too," he said excitenly. I didn't know what to think and I told him how I always keep an eye out because Costa Rica is a naturally wild place with a lot of free roaming wildlife. "If you look out at the school of fish you can see them poppin up every once in a while. You can see them moving too doing S turns. I thaught I saw something so I went back to my house and got my binauculars and those are crocs, clear as day. Look I'll show you," he continued to explain and point out the dangerous creatures. Sure enough there they were "Clear as day" as he said and I felt that much insecure as I always do surfing by Myself. The one day that I finally feel comfortable being bymyself I get shotdown to being insecure of the natural dangers this wonderfull destination offers.
