Forecast (week of 4/11)
This week we have a few possibilities of swell. Today (Tuesday) we have leftovers from a weak windswell in the water, with knee to thigh waves, occasional waist with the right tides. Wednesday an E/SE swell fills in for Thursday, when the winds should swing offshore and clean things up. This weekend is looking to have some fun waves as a front blows through.
Summer’s coming quick and so are the flat spells, so get your wave time in. While the North Atlantic calms down, the South Pacific lights up, so if you’re thinking surf trips, Central America’s never a bad bet. Costa Rica turns on and with a lot of other activity, it’s a great family friendly spot, too. If you want more waves and less dudes, do some research and try El Salvador, Nica, or Panama, which dish out pumping surf during the Northern Hemisphere summers.
