Surfing and living on the Pacific Coast of Central America

Welcome to the surfing site hosted by me, Patrick Smyth - this is the sister wite of my website tracking my time in Whistler British Columbia.


“The best surfer out there is the one having the most fun” Unknown



 Imagine waters that are 84 degrees (29c) - the warm tropical breeze on your back - and to be surfing!  The white sands at Tamarindo  create the best conditions for all levels anytime of the year on waves made famous by the movie, "Endless Summer". That was my life for most of the y2k decade.


A lot of my time has been spent in Costa Rica, Panama, Nicaragua, Peru and the Caribbean including the BVI, Caymans, Bocas del Toros and Puerto Rico.  I generally spent time on the breaks of Playa Langosta and south of Witch's rock surf club in the Tamarindo Estuary.  Weekends we try to visit Avellanas (my favorite beach), Marbella or Playa Grande.  Past surfing advertures include Bondi Beach, Surfer's Paradise (Aussi), La Jolla, Malibu, Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, Huntington Beach, Nosara, Tofino, Chicama (Peru), San Juan del Sur, Playa Yankee, Baranca, Playa Venao, Pedasi, Santa Catalina, Cambutal, San Bartolo, Manuel Antonio, Vancouver Island and Ventura.  And of course...Ollie's Point and Witch's Rock!!!


This site documents some of the breaks centered around Central America, and any comments and input are much appreciated.
