Discription of surf spot: Salsa Brava, Costa Rica

Is pretty fickle, but when it hits look out. A perfect right reef break, called the pipeline of the carribean. Quick drop into a heaving, fast pit that speeds you down the line for a multiple in and out(if you can). Heaven on earth. Regular footers prepare for your dream wave.

Stay at Purto Viejo Hotel, $6/ night, Kelly cooks killer burritos. Great atmosphere and little restaurants that are cheap and tasty. If salsa isn't beaking you can walk down to Puerto beach break just south and ride some little fun ones.
