Costa Rico SUP Opportunities!

Can you say "Hurry and get off the boat!"
This is a pre-SUP trip to CR. A left hand, rock reef that was basically unsurfable due to the inconsistant take off point. The wave had an 8-10 ft. face. A SUP surf would have been perfect! And no need for the boat, it was breaking about a 1/2 mile offshore on the point of Tamirindo's bay. I believe it is Langosta point. Just paddle 10 minutes and your ther from town. To the right of this picture is a small island that no one surfs. There are so many opportunities awaiting that I never realized before SUP.

Warning: Objects in Pictures are Smaller Than They Appear! Today AM

Dredge Pipe Right Hand Magic!

It was only ankle to knee high but you can see the benefits of the beach renourisment taking affect.

The B.B. (Butchy Bear) #1

B.B. #2 same wave


We just missed epic conditions. The wind never did it's abrupt turn around that frequently occurs while the swell was still in the water. Maybe next time?

Leaders, Followers and Those That Lead and No One Follows

Sunday Surprises. Good surf with a NE wind swell in the water today. A lot more than expected. I SUPed Masonboro with sets in the chest high range if you were in the right place. About a dozen surfers out just across from the dune walkover. I paddle out to the left of them but the north swells were running further down the beach. So I paddled past them, caught some lefts and found the honey hole about 200 yards down the beach. The swell was sweeping down the beach, about chest high and consistent. It was only thigh to waist where everyone else was.

No one follows a SUP.
