solo surf trip to CR

« on: February 08 2005 16:02:00 »

i'm thinking about taking a solo surf trip to Costa Rica (not by choice...but my friends are either too broke or don't surf....or both).

Thinking about going in March....

Wanted to see if there were other people heading out there to hang out with...and/or if anyone advises against going to Costa Rica without using the "buddy-system".

Im doing a solo trip, March7-15. Im not an experienced surfer but i do appreciate a good break. I will be exploring some surf spots just to enjoy the view, the techniques and the free spirit. From what Ive heard, its safe as you can get in Central America.
