Surfing in Santa Teresa and Mal Pais

Santa Teresa is an incredible place to surf particularly during the summer season. There are hardly any crowds and surfers don’t have to wait for their turn in long lines. The two most popular surf spots are La Lora Amarilla and Suck Rock.There are remote and glorious beaches that support excellent swells and waves. 

 

In Mal Pais, popular surfs spots include Mar Azul, Playa Carmen, Punta Barrigona and the Sunset Reef.

 

Surf spots

Suck Rock

Located next to La Lora Amarilla, Suck Rock is a famous right-hand beach break.  Before closing out, the waves can get double overhead. The waves are quite fast, large and steep often rising up to 20 feet!

 

La Lora Amarilla

La Lora Amarilla is considered one of the top five surf spots in Costa Rica. Its name is derived from an oceanfront bar which was called La Lora Amarilla by the locals. The wave is hollow; A shaped and breaks in both directions during the low tide. When the currents are strong and the tide is high, the wave can create a large wall of water up to 150 meters! La Lora is free from rocks; features perfectly shaped consistent waves making itself a most favoured surfing destination.

 

Playa Carmen

Playa Carmen has sand bottoms and waves with a longer right break and a short left break. The waves are very easy to surf making the beach a suitable place for novices and beginners. Playa Carmen features amazing beach breaks with various peaks that break right and left. The swells are of excellent height and are headed from both south and north. The multiple peaks help in dispersing the people making the pointless crowded. 

 

Mar Azul

The swells have both right and left breaks and multiple peaks. Rock formations, overhead swells and infrequent breaks make Maz Azul really appealing to pro surfers who are looking for a daring challenge. The beach break is only recommended to professional surfers.

 

Punta Barrigona

Punta Barrigona is a rocky reef break with a long left hand that turns into a massive hot dog wave. It is only suitable for advanced surfers.

 

Sunset Reef

Sunset Reef is a left-hand rocky reef break which is very rapid at first and then results in the large ride-able wall. The reef is shallow and surfing can be dangerous.
