sharks!! - we tried to surf at sierpe a few different times and it was closed out and on shore all every time... but the third time we saw a good sized shark fin, that we thought to be a bull shark... we have surfed alot in southern pacific c.r. and this would be the first really solid shark sighting we have seen...i dont think we will go back...it is a nice area but a little difficult to get to...the beach is basically uninhabitable due to no-seeum bugs so try to stay in the water and not on the beach....
