Pacific - Powerful, almost straight south swell arriving today and building in strength Sunday. Waves will be 1-3 foot overhead Sunday morning with bigger sets and a 14 second period. Monday is the peak, sets breaking every ten minutes double overhead. Beaches not facing south will be 3 to 4 feet smaller so you can still find fun surf in Tamarindo Bay and a few point breaks. Swell lasts through Wednesday, dropping down to a foot overhead Tuesday and overhead Wednesday. Thursday looks smaller still, dropping another foot, and for Friday and the weekend expect surf chest to head high with infrequent sets. Next swell on tap is next Monday afternoon from the SW pushing surf up to 1-2 feet overhead.
Caribbean - The weekend has some fun waves in the waist to chest high range, but the real deal starts up Monday morning from an ESE swell pushing in overhead surf at dawn and building to 2 foot overhead by dusk. Tuesday it maxes out at 2+ foot overhead with plently of set waves and by Wednesday it fades fast - down to head high for the evening and Thursday morning. By that afternoon though, another ENE fills in with 2-3 foot overhead surf that will build and continue through next weekend.

** From photographer John Lyman, Lyman Photos in Playa Negra - (6/22)
AREA WAVE HEIGHTS AND CONDITIONS - Tamano de las olas y condiciones: The surf today is on the small side with waist to chest high sets at the right tide. Beautiful sunny skies in the morning, clouding up mid day and raining by mid afternoon.
WHAT TO EXPECT THIS WEEKEND (weather and waves) - Que va a pasar este fin de semana (clima y olas): The waves will stay on the small side for the next few days. A very steep South swell is expected by the biginning of the week but don't look for much here at Playa Negra. Too South for this part of the Gold Coast.
BEST PLACE TO SURF THIS WEEKEND IN YOUR AREA - El mejor lugar a surfear este fin de semana en su area: The high tide is running through the mornings this week and with the South swell you should look at Little Hawaii or Langosta.

** From Erik at SurfingNosara.com in Playa Guiones - (6/23)
It is showing on the Bouys at 5 ft, at 13-14 seconds, but this swell may have too much south in it for Guiones. I bet Pavones is firing today. The good news is, that there is a a lot of current flowing North, which sometimes comes before the swell, and if it does fill in today, the South Swells usually have a real good shape. There will still be surf today, with sets in the chest high range, kind of mushy at the incoming tide, we have a high around 9AM. Wind is offshore, and the surf is nice and clean!
** From Chuck at Walking on Water Surf Shop in Jaco -(6/22)

Big Swell and it's the direction for the LEFTS ! Choose one and go ! Weather is going to be a factor so stay on it and be ready ! Could this be the INVIERNO BRAVO that we havent seen since 19-- ?
