Casa Surf (Costa Rica)
Since 2004, the Swiss-Tico couple Eve and Giovanni have been running Casa Surf in Playa Avellanas. It consists of a surf school,
surfboard rental, small basic rooms as well as a bakery (don’t forget to try Giovanni’s fantastic chocolate coconut cake).
From there you can reach many surf breaks - for beginners and pros - by foot.
The surf camp
Casa Surf offers perfect accommodation for the low budget surfer: the five rooms, two shared baths and the kitchen are simple
and small, but also safe and clean. Furthermore Eve, Giovanni, the two dogs Wellech and Coyote, the young cat Speedy as
well as some hammocks guarantee for an amazingly pleasant and relaxed atmosphere. You can enjoy Giovanni’s delicious meals
as well as participate in drum and, of course, also surfing sessions.
Both Eve and Giovanni are very experienced surfers and surf instructors who are happy to teach you there passion.
The Spots in Playa Avellanas are perfect for all kinds of surfers. You can easily walk from Casa Surf to the beach break with
various peaks, to a river mouth as well as some reef breaks (rights and lefts).
breaks (like Playa Marbella) or world-class spots (like Playa Negra) can all be reached by a short drive. Furthermore,
Eve & Giovanni are happy to organize boat trips to Olli‘s Point and Whitches Rock; both, as well as Playa Negra,
were shooting locations for the surfing movie “Endless Summer 2”.
Here’s a short collection of the spots:
but there are lots of less frequented peaks. Conditions are best just before high tide.
Be careful when the tide is falling, best surfing just before high hide
called Turtles Paradise.
Just as at La boca, be careful with the rocks when waves are low and with the stream when waves are high. Best at mid tide.
Costa Rica has two seasons: in the dry season (from December to May) waves are usually high to shoulder-high, quite often
with an offshore wind all day. The bigger waves come in the rainy season (June to November), normally with a light offshore
breeze in the morning and after the rain.
