Tasty waves

Day two of school was just as hard. Class got out at noon and I ran a few errand waiting for the tide to come in. It was worth the wait; I caught 4 waves body surfing. Nice size waves, about a California 1 foot or a Hawaii half foot to one foot. There were a few really good sets. One of the local Ticas told me I was good, being nice, and then gave me some good tips. Samara is a gentle sandy break, no rocks or coral, and the break slowly pulls long shore as the tide moves in. When the tide is out, no waves. When the tide is in, nice sets curl in gently and break a little distant off shore, enough to hinder non swimmers.

Today I signed up to play in tomorrow's soccer futbol game, as well as a bicycle tour thursday, and Friday I will leave for a 3 day excursion to monteverde and arsenal volcano tour.

  1. Oooh Arenal was awesome! If you want to treat yourself, when I was there the resort had massages for like next to nothing. Even if you don't do the massage having a drink in one of their hot tubs while watching the volcano is amazing. Another side trip that's fun is La Fortuna waterfall in of all places La fortuna.

    Also if you can get a tour for Monte Verde I recommend it. It's like .....a thick jungle and if you don't know what you are looking for you'll miss seeing the critters.
