Lunchmeat - I sent a reply so I know more about what kind of waves you want. Backyard has nice rooms and local contests on the weekend that bring in tourists (local and foreign) to their bar/restaurant. I've stayed there and at the bungalows near the tree, about 1/4 mile south near 'The Tree' surf break. Those are individually owned and since it's the low season I know some owners who have deep discounts.

I just was surfing there today. There was a short window for good waves, ones that didn't close out or break to close to the beach - it was chest to overhead and slightly onshore at 7 a.m. and then around 10 it started raining and the winds turned offshore as it went to high tide.

Hey Sherp, sent you a PM the other day. I've tried to contact your cousin, haven't heard back yet. Are you able to contact him?

Why are you ruling out Mexico? If it is concern about crime. Most of the crime is not in the in or around the tourist and surf locations. September and October are usually very good for surf in Mexico.

The girl doesn't feel comfortable going there and I've been several times, plus Costa is pretty cheap right now.

you could do the whole Texas Surf Safari. New Park opened in Wack. From the few video clips I have watched looks kind of fun. Do the Parks then book a boat to surf the Tanker wakes in the Houston Channel. Yes it is a real thing. Sand bares form in the channel Big manga Trankers come by and you get some nice looking waves. A fast boat passes the Tanker gets you to another sand bar and you hop your way from wave to wave.

I used to go to Playa Guiones/ Nosara all the time but after my last trip in January I'm not going back. It has gotten so crowded and over developed. one afternoon sesh I counted >250 surfers and >150 people on the beach, 99.9% gringos. Luckily I have found a place that is a dream come true in CR, Maybe September wont be so crowded in Nosara, but know that large swells can come in that time of the year

What ever happened to Jamaica? A while back there was a guy on here posting daily reports and "come down to Jamaica"



Are you talking about Jahmeyka Surf Camp started my Kurt Masinello from Liquid Addiction? That's done. There's Jamnesia Surf Camp, owned/operated by Billy Wilmot. But Billy doesn't really post on here..
