Go to playa negra. There is a resort right in front of the break. You also have several good options a short drive away. Avellanes grande etc. World class right when it is on. For a sketchier option take a day trip to playas del coco and set up a boat to take you out to witch's rock. Around the corner there is a right barrel called labarintho. Take a good leash!
