Great Wave - GREAT WAVESurfed it two days in a row, one evening and one dawn patrol. There were a few cool locals out during the evening session, but I didnt see a soul for 5 hours during the morning session(besides the odd barge and turtle spearers). You can catch a rid to the island for $10 a head. When you get to limon, go to playa bonita and ask around for a guy named "Roach" (juan carlos officially) he will take care of you.
