Discription of surf spot: Playa Hermosa, Costa Rica

It's a very long beach. Only went there once. Beautiful environment. You're surfing with the rays at sundown.
huge beach with loads of different breaks, the bigger the wave the further apart the different waves break, tendency to close out due to the sand bars. Big crowds and nasty rips, but a great place to hang with friendly people. Good variety of wave and comps are held here. Pura Vida.
