During the late February and March the Northwest Pacific coast was fortunate enough to experience a couple good surf swells and were very consistent with some offshore days at northern spots like Avellanas and Playa Grande. The strong winds that the province experienced have been great for the surf community. Early morning was the best best for surfing as the onshore winds would arrive early afternoon.

The full moon of mid March combined with the East coast snow brought a fairly strong SW-SSW swell producing some good chest high to overhead waves up and down the coast from Playa Grande south. Moderate to locally more offshore flow continued for northernmost CR (north of Playa Grande) for the next few days, strongest in the mornings before peaking on March 21st.

Playa Grande was clean and perfect in the morning high tides in mid March. The water warmed up into the low 30’s after a cold spell and the swell was running between shoulder and overhead on the sets and peaking at over 7 feet. In Tamarindo the waves and wind were back with the offshore winds producing some great breaks at the river mouth.

However due to spring break many spots tended to be crowded. Some fun days were had at spots further North like at Witch’s Rock and Ollie’s point with great weather and conditions being offshore all day.
