Good Spot - I surfed this place when it was head high and offshore. First of all its not a beach break but rather a lava finger reef and secondly I saw some nice barrels out there. Needs to be surfed at high tide as the rocks become exposed at low tide. Also, I didn't notice any kooks out in the line up but rather four or five locals that did catch most of the waves and have a very "local" attitude. Show respect and wait your turn and this is by far the best wave in tamarindo (not including grande)

A good Wave??? - Hey buddy...pico was a DECENT wave about 15 years ago. What is your brain fried from all those low quality drugs that flow through those sewage infested streets?? For all the punk-ass losers that claim Tamarindo, dont worry...you can have the sorry excuse of a wave, We dont need your arm flapping, loud mouths at our Northern spots. Stay home.... ViVE LA PEña BRUJA, Potrero Grande, Y CARBONAL!!!!
