      Plenty of East swell hitting the Caribbean coast straight on through til midweek next week. On the Pacific, a WNW swell shows up Wednesday bringing up the headhigh+ set count, and a WSW swell arrives on Sunday to put the surf back overhead. Larger SW swells are starting to ply across the ocean, and will bring waves late next week.

      ** From Louis at Hotel Las Tortugas in Playa Grande (1/13) -

      AREA WAVE HEIGHTS AND CONDITIONS - Tamano de las olas y condiciones: We are enjoying head high, good waves every day now that our early morning high tides are kicking in.

      WHAT TO EXPECT THIS WEEKEND (weather and waves) - Que va a pasar este fin de semana (clima y olas): The morning conditions are perfect as long as there is some swell.

      BEST PLACE TO SURF THIS WEEKEND IN YOUR AREA - El mejor lugar a surfear este fin de semana en su area: There are waves all up and down the bay - even in Tamarindo .

      ** From photographer John Lyman, Lyman Photos in Playa Negra - (1/15)

      The surf has been in waist high range for a while now. Sunny weather with offshores in the morings and some hard onshores in the afternoons. Water temp hovers at 80 degrees. Things will be changing for the better starting tomorrow as a new SW moves in with headhigh plus waves with a bit of NW added to the mix. The shape will be good to excellent. This swell should last at least a couple days before it starts to backslide. More swell on tap for this weekend. Alot of surfers around Playa Negra right now and with high tide in the morning you might want to check out Avellanas beachbreak or Marbella.

      Fun Head high surf, long wait, but its coming. Yeah!!! Calm before the storm day here in Nosara, as we have a good one headed our way late tonight... All of the forecasters are agreeing on this one, so I am hoping they are all correct. Good tides, good winds... sweet!!!

      AREA WAVE HEIGHTS AND CONDITIONS - Tamano de las olas y condiciones: Swell has dropped.  Chest high at best.

      WHAT TO EXPECT THIS WEEKEND (weather and waves) - Que va a pasar este fin de semana (clima y olas): The weekend looks like it'll be the same, but we might get a bump on Tuesday or Wednesday for a few days.
