Bocas del Toro - surfing in August

I´m planning to surf in Bocas del Toro in August, but I'm not sure if there are good waves in that

season (I've heard the best period is from December to March, but  I wont be able to go in this season)

I´m a intermediate surfer. Would i be dissapointed with the size of the waves in August?



RE: Bocas del Toro - surfing in August

I am here now (August 2014) and the waves are amazing. Had a few days of 5-8ft. Barreling waves, and now it's a bit smaller but still barreling and fun. Definitely good surf. I have heard it can be a bit of a risk at this season, but July august are your best bet. I don't see an end to the swell in sight on the surf forcast. Good luck!
