Stormrider Description
Stormrider Logo
Costa Rica is best known for the perfect small waves found around the Guanacaste area but it was actually the Pavones area that made the country famous, thanks to photos of some of longest lefts in the world. Add in the wonderful tropical scenery and plenty of great waves to choose from and you have the makings of a good surf trip. Another major surprise comes from the Caribbean, which has revealed some unexpectedly powerful waves. The Osa Peninsula close to the Panamanian border is the place where surf trip fantasies become a reality, with spots hidden away behind lush curtains of rainforest. The Golfo Dulce provides a watery divide between Pavones lefts and Matapalo rights, whilst the surrounding jungle hides many other spots.
