GC Surf Week

Thursday 6am update I called the wrong day for the clean up. Wednesday am was the clean-up. Yesterday looked like barrel fest 2016. That guy on the yellow railed board in Captiva made it look Chocolate Kirra, long, deep barrels and making them, so sick I was pumped checking those shots. Captiva has some barrels. 6ft at 10 seconds has always been a magic number for WFL barrels. Thanks el nino. Much smaller today I would desk guess knee high for the DP this am. You can find a LB wave later on incoming tide. Next window of waves is not far off. 15knt plus west winds could put a ridable wave on the beaches tomorrow afternoon esp from Manatee Cnty North. Then Saturday will have a 2ft, thigh high NW line with offshore winds at best cold front spots. Stoked for you guys.


Wednesday Morning at Tres Palmas:
I really love this wave. It is such a good spot. I’m only surfing it on small days but it’s so easy. I can paddle out at Tres with hair dry and work my way up to the peak instead of getting 10 on the head at Marias. I’m riding a 6’8 X 20.5 X 2.75 and it was catching waves like nothing, battelship cruiser, love it, stoked. Come surf it with me!

Costa Rica
has been a favorite destination for surfers for decades. Easy access to perfect surf, friendly locals, natural beauty and amazing tropical wildlife are all easily available. Uvita is one of the up and coming areas in SW Costa Rica. It is desirable due to it’s close proximity to the consistent waves of Playa Dominical and it’s an easy striking distance to Pavones, one of the world’s longest, funnest lefts. Casa Uvita features comfort in new construction minutes from the surf breaks of Dominical with an awesome view of the whales tale. Check into Casa Uvita for your next Costa Rica surf trip.
