 Additional Information

Park at the access alleys before and after Capitan Suizo. Great place to get away from the Tamarindo crowds. This beach has better form than others nearby. Theres also a really good left that breaks further outside off a reef. Best for the longboard or learning.

South wind secret spot - When the whole coast is torn up by southwind, its clean and fun here. Usually 1/2 the size of Tamarindo but better clean faces with smackdown lips going off the ricter. Aireal heaven when its going off. Easy to be top guy out. T.G.O. Thieves all over it though. Bring nothing but your board and trunks or its gone when you come in.

Best at southwind - when tamarindo is not so good check out this spot. Sometimes its twice the size and way better shape. Watch out for the little kids who paddle in front of you, cut you off and hop hop swing the arms like the rest of the tamarindo rippers. They have very high voices too. Tamarindo has the best rippers around, just ask them. Leave nothing in your car and they will still break your window to get in. Best to walk from your hotel and not risk it. Crack central. Crack = thieves

breaks very infrequently - south winds rarely blow too
