awesome spot - This place go's off. One off the best spots for guys who want to step it up. Super ez take off and a real nice set-up for getting tubed. If you surf any spot in Costa make sure you surf here.

Escon - I lived in Herradura for 8 years BEFORE they built that shity marina. I had my own panga I surfed Esondida alone for years. It's a shame it's over run by kooks like Pablo? If these gringos did not come down and show you the beauty of surfing you would still be riding on a burro idiota.

Gringos go HOME!!!! - I dont know what make gringos think they are welcome to Costa Rica!!! The whole world hate your asses!! Escondida es un excelente spot, uno de mis lugares preferidos en este pais!!! Costa Rica para los ticos!!
