Howzit piranha,Sorry to hear about your loss and Costa Rica is one of my favorite places to go and the people are great as is the surf. Spent quite a bit of time in Jaco Bch at the Jaco Bch Hotel and for $40 a night ( last time I was there) you can't beat it except foe hotels on the Nicoya Pen. Aloha Kokua
Wow kokua you must have been here quite a wile ago $40.00 a night, well the Jaco Beach Hotel is the Best Western Hotel now. But Joco is still a little surf town but with big hotels, I live on the other side Herradura beach. But I keep loading up the car to set up the surf school with the remaining brother in law to keep the family business going.There is a web page that manfurd had before he dided it needs a little working on I think its purdavidajocosurfschool.com not to sure about the web address.
Thanks W1978 that's the facebook part but theirs a web site that he was working before he dided www.pudavidasurfjaco.com Its not working now for some reason just called the guy that did the web page it should be right .Yea then you know W1978 the Island is a cool break it's kinda of fat and slow but it can be surfed on any large swell and it well always hold up it could be a possible tow-in break on a monster swell.
Yes the Island realy is not good intel it dubble over head OK there is a real good left just north or west from were I live playa agujas if you cought it chest high to head high it would have been a real big swell its a left zippering wave perfect right before Boca Baranca there is a kind of port town called caldera way out at the end of the jetty there is a absolute awesom left that again takes a large swell..
Howzit piranha, I have gotten some great waves in Costa Rica and Playa Hermosa has always been good to me and that was on a longboard. The Nicoya Penninsula has some great wave also and to tell you the truth I can't remember ever having any bad sessions in the whole country. I was offered a couple of jobs but I was involved with my own businesses on Kauai and just could't break away. You are very lucky to live there. So how much does it cost to stay at a nice hotel there these days at say Iguana Azule Aloha,Kokua
Howzit going kokua Iguana looks like a good deal during low season which is high season for waves May-Nov 45.00 to 125.00 here in Jaco and Herradura you could get a cabina or a room for a lot less and food is cheaper.You could live for 20.00 a day if you eat of the beaten path but it is getting like Hawaii here, Your from there I know because you were giving a Hawaiian name.Pay here in Costa Rica is at best bad put if you get a contract for surfboards or for sure boats and yachts its good money but trainable help is hard to find
