Mal Pais- Costa Rica for Novice

Postby Don Logan » Wed May 01, 2013 3:40 pm

Hi, i'm going to Costa Rica in July and will be spending some time in Montezuma and also Mal Pais area. Just wanted to find out some recommendations for beginner/learner breaks in Mal Pais/ Santa Teresa if anyone is familiar with the area?

I'm not a complete beginner but don't get to surf much being in the UK, so could do with some easyish waves to improve on.

It's mostly beach breaks around Mal Pais, will depend on the banks but as long as the swell isn't thumping it should be great for you.

No need to figure out the different breaks there. Just ask someone at the hotel you're staying where to go and they'll point you to both Santa Teresa and Mal Pais. If not, there are plenty of surfers in the area that can help you. It will be easy enough once you get there. I've had plenty of fun at both over the years.
