Yo David,
The cenral coast of CR breaks all year round.  It is probably the most consistant year round than any other area of Costa Rica.   There are lots of places to surf in Playa Hermosa such as The Tree, Pig farms, and lots more.
I went last year (Dec 29th-Jan10) and the surf was averaging around chest to shoulder high.
I am going back again this winter around end of Dec and looking for some people to travel with!
hit me back
ciao

Salsa Brava! After 5 full days and your body needs to heal, or if it's too big, go south a few miles and look for another right 1/3 of the size.
A few good spots near Limon. Playa Hermosa also has the ability to test  your limits. A left.

Try the Nosara area. Specificly Playa Guiones. Lots of surf just like you said you wanted, but not as hectic/crowded as the Jaco/Hermosa area. Fly into Liberia, not San Jose

Yo David,
stay in Playa Hermosa (just south of Jaco)
I'll be there with some friends December 31st - Jan 13.  The weather last year was hot, sunny, no wind.  The waves were around chest + and the water was in the high 80's.  
email me if you wantt to hook up with my crew and we can hit some gnarly surf down there..
later brah
