Jaco was real fun this evening if a little fat and mushy , clean light winds and so many people on the beach ! Friday should also be quite fun with the afternoon high tide , I heard from a friend that corners was real fun this am as well !

Bigger today for sure , looks like a wsw direction and Ill bet the Islands going to break at low tide this afternoon , Esterillos Oeste in the morning is the call as well ! Hermosa is going to be suck up hard hitting barrel if you want any of those and there are those that get just that ! Weather is beautiful , light clouds showing up the last couple of days and the cicadas are going crazy calling for rain ! Could we be getting close to some rains already ? Even the Cortez Trees haven’t flowered yet but the Cicadas are truly going crazy and that’s confusing this old school CR traveler for sure . One says too early and the other says just around the corner ! Lets see what happens , come by the shop for some first class treatment and a free surf map after all we are still here because of you ! Pura Vida , A Friend in Costa Rica ! Free hat to the first traveler who knows where that came from and sends me an email telling me the answer !

3/5 ft faces and a bit bumpy in the afternoon , ist a nice long swell , lines are looking Esterillos Oeste to me , let me know if you surfed there today ! Shop has been pretty decent as of late , I guess having some of the best surf boards in the country helps and you know for the real deal were not too pricey ! New pads by ProLite and DaKine are pretty bitchin too ! A bit of skate additions in the shop if you want to drop into the mini bowl at the Civic Center , we have pads ,helmets and parts along with some decent complete skateboards too ! We are not Arenas but that’s the point I think we are not Arenas were still just [hahaha] WOW SURF ! Thanks for your visit and hope you enjoyed Jungle Jam ! I did ! Pura Vida from the CREW and I !

October 6, 2016 : Surf Report

 Beautiful day here in Jaco , sunny with a light breeze and high tide in the afternoon at sunset so that evening session could be great . Its not very big some chest high sets I figure but condition are clean a nice !

I bet Hermosa is going to be on fire!

First ever WSL event in CR is on today ! Conditions are really good for that event , Diego is working real hard with his team on this so stop by Esterillos Este and see the action ! For just 1 week{ Fri 7 thru Thursday 13} I will give a free WOW SURF t-shirt to anyone who comes by the shop and makes a 20$ minimum purchase but you have to say I SAW THIS ON CR SURF !

October 6, 2016 : Surf Report

Looking pretty solid out here today , 2 directions and if you choose well you can get a bomb ! Some 5-7 ft faces not perfect but way surfable ! Winds are really variable with the feeder bands passing thru so you gotta be on it ! No crowds to speak of they are heading to Este for the WSL event this week ! Be some talent in town for sure ! Best days of the year to buy a board from us great deals on great boards , an example is brand new US made SuperBrand only 500$ in cash !!!! And some other great deals too ! Come on in and see us at Chucks WOW SURF ! PURA VIDA and Happy Surfing !

Fun waves here in Jaco , some wind on it with the early afternoon high tide but fun none the less , Hermosa had some bombs come thru the last few days and I hear the Boca was good as well ! Hardly raining , just some afternoon stuff and you cant beat not having crowds either . Im doing a 20% off in the shop on everything but you have to mention you saw this here or on our facebook page . Great time to buy a new board for sure ! Best quality boards in the country ! See ya soon , Happy Surfing , Chuck and the CREW at WOW SURF !

March 3, 2016 : Surf Report

Right out front was that 2’4 ft faces and super fats but really clean too ! I took out a Tom Carrol SUP I just got and had a blast ! I hear that the swell is going to pickup and abit more south which should give us a bit more of a shoulder to work with . I will probably start thinking about Oeste here in the next couple of days as the tide moves into midday and with a bit of push it could be fun , shortboard riders will want to check Tulin and Centro thru Bejuco area I figure . Not much special happening here , life and business as usual , Jaco has the art festival this weekend and should be pretty packed with people and good music and theres is a big parade Saturday evening with some 15 marching bands form all over CR invited to march thru town and add some action and fun to our nice town ! In other news I was invited to a meeting with the judicial department of CR as member of our growth and development community group and thye gave us some pretty nice news . Jaco or the county of Garabito is one of the very few counties in CR with a dropping crime statistic and an improving arrest and conviction rating . It took awhile{5 + years} and hard work and lots of police presence but along with community involvement we are actually becoming an even better place to live and visit . More infrastructure , better services and a safer community , hows that for success ! Anyways see ya soon right here in Jaco ! Pura Vida y saludos or greetings from Chuck and the crew here at WOW SURF !

Jaco fun a bit smaller but still overhead and powerful , appears to hold its size thru tomorrow and then drop for the CNS finals but Saturdays rounds should be exciting as all get out , direction is good tides okay and theres plenty of power , look for the best of our CR surfers to put on a show tomorrow !Weathers been pretty decent afternoon rains but nothing too crazy and its beautiful out there right now , sunny and clear . We just received Summer O’Neil clothing and Lycra so you may want to stop by and see it and maybe get a new pair of boardies or a new BOARD even , some great deals mixed in the rack there and the fresh batch of Haydens also arrived this week . Thanks and happy surfing , Chuck and the CREW at WOW SURF !

It is a longer wait than expected for a slowly arriving South swell, leaving the weekend with chest to head high surf. The waves won’t pick up until Tuesday morning and then build a foot a day through Thursday when it peaks at 2 feet overhead on the sets Friday. It fades a foot for next weekend, but there’s more South and Southwest on the way!

Bueno Barrilito was on fire yesterday

October 17, 2011 : Surf Report

Bueno Barrilito was on fire yesterday p.m. overhead sets and barrels to be had along with some nice bowls , still crossed up and such but the peak was really good ! I even took one on the head that made it even more fun ! Jaco looked pretty good too a bit more dumpy but a couple of good ones out there.

Looks like more rain in the forecast for the coming days but the waters warm and the rain as well , surf should be very similar and you just have to check a few places and keep on eye on the wind .

Still running specials in the store if you need anything it’s a good time to buy right now . The new Cocomat NSPs are due in this week and you should see them, especially for the ECO minded surf school this is a great idea, reducing resin and fiberglass use by 30% and weight reduction by 15% and adding who knows how much thru the use of natural fibers from COCONUT HUSKS! Here’s a link to the technology which is only available here in Costa Rica thru PURE SURF DISTRIBUTION or your best local retailers – Coco-mat technology. You will be able to see the boards here and not even have to go to SURF EXPO in January. But if you also want to meet us there at the booth we will all be happy to show you the complete new Global Surf Industries line-up. PURA VIDA and Happy Surfing, Chuck and the CREW at WOW SURF!

Luz de Vida announced their annual contest will be from July 15th to 17th in Santa Teresa.
That weekend will also be our 600th surf report (CR Surf Report) since we started in August 1998. (Thanks Chuck and Louis, who have been there from the start!)

One of biggest sales from wow. See why they say; “WOW, go to Chuck’s for, wow, what a sale.”

Your welcome and that’s kind of cool its Louis and I, (Louis, you and I need to get together and do the GURU thing someday soon! It’s been way too long!)

Anyways waves have been too big for our local beach breaks but today had Jaco really good in the afternoon , I imagine that Oeste was really good as well , its like head-high on sets a bit straight on but plenty of shoulders out there if you paddled hard and found the right position on sets !

Back to the slow month of May, business wise, but that means we have to do some really nice deals because its local boys and residents doing the shopping. So guess what its LETS MAKE A DEAL time at WOW SURF . Any new regular priced board and get a leash and board bag for FREE. How’s that for a nice local bro deal !!!! PURA VIDA and Happy Surfing!
