Stormrider Description
Stormrider Logo
Ollie's Point, Witches Rock, Playa Grande, Tamarindo, Playa Negra, Mal Pais, Jaco, Hermosa, Matapalo, Pavones are the famous and familiar names on the Costa Rica surf map. Being the first Central American country to embrace US surfers, with the first surf tours beginning in 1985, many areas became a victim of their own success. There are still some amazing places lurking off the surfers beaten tracks and the area that extends east of Dominical to the Corcovado Park on Osa Peninsula still offers a lot to explore in lush tropical scenery. The wet season from May to November, is synonymous with consistent S-SW swells hitting a variety of quality rock and sand waves.

+ Dominical surf town
+ Great exploration potential
- No world-class waves
