When i found out my girlfriend had booked to go to the south coast i was bumed that all th surf spots are on the north, we stayed at the riu bambu and was put in touch with a local surfer, robert (the guru) if you go, look out for him, he's the boy and loves surfin! the surf was too big for me jan 02 2009 but robert and his pals were catchin some awesome rides in 5ft surf. An american lad told me it gets massive some days when the storms come and that he'd been bitten by a baby shark, but who knows. They were all really frindly and we got trolley'd on the beach afterwards with the sun setting and jimi hendrix blasting. Happy days!

It was pretty bad today. The strong offshore wind kept pushing the whole lineup away from the break, the swell wasn't all it was cracked up to be today, and it was pretty crowded too.
All told, I got a few waves in and a bad day of surfing is better than a good day at work. I'll take it.

There was supposed to be a decent swell coming from the north west so I went to check out tracks and it was totally flat. I took the 20 minute drive a little further north to the rec center just to see what was up and, apparently, the swell started to come in during the drive. They were still a little small and there was a lot of waiting going on between sets but, no matter what the conditions, I have a hard time saying I had a bad day surfing.
The lineup was pretty sweet today too. There was me, a guy on a paddle board, and some dude named Jack, and then one other guy came out a little later and hung out for a while. A couple of paddleboarders came out a little later but they left pretty quick. All told it there was never more than five people out there at any time.

The waves were kind of junk today. The first hour was right before the super bowl. That was pretty sweet cuz the wind was light and the waves were pretty fun. The second hour was after the super bowl so the wind had picked up and the tide had come in a little. The waves were pretty choppy but they were rideable. It was better than nothing!

After having missing the good sandbank yesterday, I get early this morning to go there. And I found the big right not as good as yesterday but still a really good wave !
I missed the 3 first waves because I was alone and it was hard to find the right take-off. Then I started to caught good ones with big carves and a lip on my head.
After surfers came. It was fun but really physical. Then we saw 50m south a incredible slab: it was Teahupoo !!! just perfect !! But the rip was too strong to take the wave (and I didn't have the level in fact)

9 AM Blackies Newport Beach, water was a cool 58 F but the air was sunny and warm, 80 F by noon, not a cloud in the blue sky. Indian Summer in Southern California! Offshore Santa Ana wind blowing from the desert through the mountain canyons to the sea.
Surf was small but fun with lots of 'birds' winged and otherwise to look at!

The swell was big. And all the sandbanks have moved because of the tempest Klaus which have devastated my region. I found a solid swel. As the tide was low, I paddled outside and get some fun rights, powerful, hollow, but not too hollow.
After one hour, as the tide rose up, I came to beach. But the nightmate began: The waves were only big, thick close-outs. I caught only one wave more.
I was smashed by big sets...Exhausted I went out. I saw a beautiful peak: I jumped into the water again. I get smashed harder than before and didn't managed to go outside.
I came back. Then I saw surfers 500m up to the north on the most incredible right I ever seen here in ten years ! A guy (a really good surfer) caught a big stand-up tube, stayed 5sec completely hidden by the tube then went out !
I was too tired to go again...

It was a small day at Tracks today but it was a place I've been wanting to surf for a while. The lineup was empty again, there were nine of us out there, but that's why I like surfing during the weekday instead of on weekends, most people are at work.
I was surprised at how short the rides were too. I didn't realize Tracks broke that close to shore. All in all, a bad day of surfing is better than no day of surfing.

Coolest thing about the morning was the seal coming out of the water just as I was going in. I've seen the thing sitting around sunning before but I've never seen him come out like that.
Other than that, the lineup was pretty bare and the surf was okay. Nothing spectacular, just another day at White Plains. Better than working though.

THis spot can be EPIC!!! and treacherous-not for the faint of heart. Beware of Giant rocks and sweeping currents. The wave looks amazing to surf but hard to get to

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.

The lineup was me and some guy on a stand-up. I struggled with the 7'6" so after paddling around for 20 minutes, trying for four or five waves and catching one of them, I decided to paddle back in and grab the 8'6". Once I got out there with that one things started looking up. Got to grab whatever I wanted because there was noone out there competing for waves. Rode a handful of rights and called it a morning. Not too shabby.

so i got up, walked out to where i catch the boat, got a boat, arranged a pickup time, and jumped off into an empty reef with no affects due to tide. head high swell, and i couldnt be more thrilled. 3 weeks later i was still suffering from the severe sunburn I recieved these couple of days, but nyway, I jump off the boat almost right into a wave. I surf for the following 5 or 6 hours, Im not really sure. but long story short, the boat never came back, no one ever showed up, and the tide never turned, so essentially it was sick, epic, out of control,.....until it was time to go home. fortunatly there was land close by, but we were seperated by an urchin encrusted reef. when I couldnt stand to paddle anymore I decided to give the reef a go, nd try my luck on land. caught a wave in, rode the whitewash on my belly through the shallows. the water receeds for the oncomming wave, and im left high and dry on this reef. the wave breaks, and im tossing around in a few inches of water. I ride that backwash back out past the reef and curse to myself for trying that. but im still faced with the challenge of getting back. i ride acouple more waves, and give it another go. this time i find the pass, and safley paddle all the way to the beach. I jumped on the back of a dumptruck, made small talk with the workers in back and got off when they took me as far as they could. I walked the rest of the way. ended up with some serious gouges in the bottom of my board, but nothing I couldnt handle fixing.

so its saturday, i think independece weekend for costa rica, lineup is packed. waves suck. out of nowhere I see a bump, i paddle towards the peak, other local snags it...im a little bumbed but as soon as I make it over the lipline, i see right behind it is another. i glance around and Im the only one in the spot. i drop in, hit the lip acouple times get acouple quality turns in and kick out right behind the dude who took the first one. behind me, there are no more waves, just like 3ft, bullshit slop. i paddle out right behind the first guy, and as soon as we make it out to the peak, 2 more freak waves come, he grabs the first again, and i see that there is someone else looking like there gonna paddle for the second. so from the second I saw the 2nd set shape up, i knew this wave was mine. dude paddles for the wave, hes got priority, drops in, behind the peak about the time im dropping in right at the peak, he pearls and im left free and clear. with the adrenaline pumping from the first wave just acouple minutes ago I surfed the second about the same as the first, again kicking out rigt behind the first guy. and that was it, the rest of the day was crummy mush. but for sure 2 sick waves on an otherwise crappy day with very little swell.

This place is usually out of control, the whole coast is really exposed to both swell and wind. the setups around the reefs here are pretty sketchy at best and don't really produce quality waves very often. Unless your a local and know the area and conditions i wouldn't bother there are better waves to be found a few kays down the road

Our last surf here and it just turned on. The arvo glass off was like liquid oil/gold on the surface and the sunset was reflected pink off the water. 8 of us out, shoulder high + on the sets, just perfect. An awesome wave, can't wait to surf it at a proper 6ft+!

WAVES: 4ft messy - AIR TEMP: 6'c - SEA TEMP: 9'c - DESCRIPTION: Same excellent conditions as yesterday (20.01.08) only a little bit bigger, and slightly messier due to more wind. The conditions provided some brilliant, powerful rides. Only 3 surfers in the water today, which ensured everybody had their fair share of waves. Thanks to motivational Teddy for saying "WETSUIT UP!", it was absolutely worth it! Awesomeness defined! :D

First of all, the place is called hollywood beach. it ain't fuckin called hollywood by the sea. and after this last weekend im here to declare that as a fucking local we don't need websites like this shit. we don't need all you fuckin kooks crowding up are beaches and pretending you're a fucking local. if you think you could come up to a local and for a second pretend you live here you're wrong. we know everyone that lives here it's not that small of a town.

WAVES: 4ft clean - AIR TEMP: 4'c - SEA TEMP: 10'c - DESCRIPTION: Mathieu and me headed down to the pier this afternoon with zero expectations after watching the webcam for a couple of minutes. However, crispy clean sets of 2-4ft waves of awesomeness were rolling in! Nice... Had my first tubelike wave today, which was simply aaaaamazing! (It ended with the wave crashing over me at the end though) Looks like we'll be seeing the same conditions tomorrow (hopefully!)

Beautiful, sunny sunday session. Good sized waves with lots of power ensured some pretty sweet rides all the way to the bank. However, the wind was a constant factor, which ensured a drift that kept you paddling to stay in place, but it wasn't too bad though. Boscombe paradise pier, gotta love it on days like these! So fresh after a rough night out!
Peace, love and happiness to all my fellow surfers. Have a surfelicious week. :D

me, my bro and a friend went to pyramids yesterday.
the waves were very small when we arrived, so we opted to paddle around the rocks to the groin (because it was our first time and didnt want to jump off the rocks).
As usual the locals were "owning" the beach, there was only about 10 out all together which made it very crowded, the locals stared us down early but as the session went on they left us alone. The locals were absoulutely owning us, catching the leadge and using the wave as a ramp for inverts and air 360's, ohh by the way stay out of their way cos they get very amgry if you steal there wave (they do it to you lots) and they run over you with great speed its very easy to get hit by there boards or fins. the waves were crusing in about 1 1/2 metres and were perfect for barrel riding, while my friend was doing 360's and barrel rolls. we stayed about 1 1/2 then moved back to pyramids which was starting to pump some good catchable 2 metre sets, it was ultra crowded with young bodyboarders and surfers, so take care. After 45 mins there we paddled back round the rocks and were happy to see the most of the locals had left, the waves pumped out 2 metre sets which were quite hard to catch luckily there were 1-2 good barrel rollers in between sets. i better mension that while we were out we saw a bronze fin about 10 metres from us crusing back and forth, i thought it was a bronze whaler (i know what sharks look like) and caught a wave to the rocks to be safe, while the locals didnt care.
i then spotted 4 more "sharks" futher out and they were splasing around, if you look at bronzies they have big thrashing tails which would do that.
the swell was great fun and probly my best session so far

I went to Le Porge but it was only a big close-out . I checked to the south and to the north: nothing, the period of the swell was too long.
I went to Le Pin Sec. It was a good option. I have surfed a strange bowl. it was a left which started very slowly, powerless (I even took of in the foam, in the close out, wait to be at the bottom of the wave before to stand up), then a long, hollow bowl started. I get several cover up with a lot of speed !
A great session.

Andri and I went up to Jalama, found a good spot and got a wave. It was freaking cold and shortly after we got there the tide dropped out below us and the surf got small and mushy. We tried to wait out the low tide, but the onshore wind came up and blew out allt he surf.

Got there by about 3. The set was big. 9-13 or 14ft. Pretty crazy for around here i'd say. A few people out, maybe around 10. BBoarders and surfers. Some good waves were to be ridden. But with cut feet i was stranded near the beach. A great break, pretty clean too. A decent session.

It was cold but perfect. The session started slowly with a fun 1m-1,20 m. It was long fun rippable walls. I had a lot of fun (cut-back, roller, etc,)
Then people started to come (and auto-proclameted anry locals ). The swell rose up and we got 1,50 m, very beautiful.
I surfed a good tube, and small ones. A good session

Got there at about 12-ish. Waxed my board and went out for a look. Came back a little dissapointed at 1st. Waves weren't all that flash. Tide started moving in and the set just got bigger and bigger. 7ft consistant which is excellent for Brunei. Tide reached peak and mellowed out. 30mins later the tide was goin back out and suck back all the water with it making these mad centre break barrels aorund 6-8ft. Excellent stuff.
