Racing the Emerald Curtain
Located on the south side of the headland Reventazón picks up plenty of swell, but is more exposed to the winds. A dirt track parallels the beach for endless kilometres, surveying unappealing, usually out of control beachbreak with no break in the monotonous, straight geology for 50kms at least. Only worth a look on the smallest days before there is any hint of wind.
Solo surfing and sweeping currents mean it is not a place for newbies to take a funboard for a float.
