Located in Central Puntarenas Province, Costa Rica, Quepos Jetty is a quality left-hand jetty break that relies on good sand build-up to create some barreling peelers. The waves here can be challenging to surf and break for up to 150 meters over a sand and boulder bottom. Mushy and great for longboarders until about chest high, when it really turns on into a fast barreling wave. Don’t surf after rain and watch out for boat traffic.
