Tamarindo/Nicoya late May - Hi everyone, I'm coming from the UK down to Tamarindo/North East area for the last 10 days of May. I'm planning on hiring a 4x4, surfing around Tamarindo a bit, before working my way down to the Nicoya Peninsula. If anyone else is planning anything similar, and wants to meet for a surf or a few beers, send me a mail.Also - does anyone know how frequent the buses are from San Jose airport to Jacó on a Saturday evening at 7ish? Cheers,Dave

A recent re-visit to Costa Rica... - In mid-February I spent 10 days on the Pacific side of Costa Rica. The last time I was in Costa Rica was 1994 and even though I knew things had changed I really wasn't prepared for how MUCH they've changed. I didn't revist every spot I went to in '94, but the spot that I revisited that has changed the most was Nosara. In '94 I didn't see anybody in the water; this trip it was absolutely mobbed! As crowded as most popular U.S. east coast breaks in the summer. No bad vibes though. Tamarindo... well, everybody knows it's crowded there, but even the breaks to the north (Grande) and to the south (Negra) were pretty thick this time.Ollies and Witches were zoo'd as well. On the day we went the swell was small and there were a lot of novice surfers taking EVERYTHING on longboards. Judging from the ability of most of the people though I believe a larger swell would've thinned out the crowd considerably. Part of the crowd was a woman with some of her surf school students. The students ended up sitting on the boat watching their instructor routinely drop-in on people and generally make a nuisance out of herself.All in all it seems to me that Costa Rica's blessings (people, food, scenery, surf, etc) are becoming it's curses (crowds, rude visitors, pollution, etc) as well. I just hope that "Pura Vida" will survive the onslaught of the current popularity. Lastly, the best thing about Costa Rica is really it's people. I was always treated better than I deserved and the people just made this last trip so special. I remember more about them than I do of the surf.
Brasilian Surfrboards - I represent some of the best surf companies and shapers in Brasil.I'm loking for someone to be my representative in Costa Rica or any contact in surfshop. We just work with the best material in the market and the price is very competitive because of our currency is depreciate. Tks, Eilon.
