WAVES YOU'VE MISSED
The first half of 2018 brought with it a fair share of fun waves. While there have only been a few very sizeable swells so far, the real swell season is only just getting started. Mid-April through mid-May blessed surfers in Costa Rica with plenty of SSW swells that lit up the Pacific coastline. As it is seasonally characteristic, all the swells that did show up this past month were SSW swells averaging three to six feet. Three to six feet of swell looks very different from surf spot to surf spot, as is apparent in Playa Hermosa and Playa Avellenas. While most afternoons the wind did switch to the unfavorable onshore, early morning surfs were often glassy and gorgeous. There were a few days when the wind didn't really affect the surf too much though, especially further down south.
