Located in Guanacaste, right on the border of Nicaragua and Costa Rica, Ollie’s Point (named after the colonel who delivered weapons to the junta in Nicaragua) is a wonderful right-hand point break. It is featured in “The Endless Summer II” and is a world-class wave. It offers up performance walls and barreling sections for those that rent a boat to arrive, which are many. The waves break for up to 200 meters over a rock bottom. There are some other good peaks nearby that work at high tides. Watch out for Crocs and big old mosquitos. Not easy to access through the national park, impossible in the wet season.
What are the best surf conditions for Ollie’s Point?
Gets good between waist-high and triple overhead. We recommend riding a longboard, shortboard or step up as the size picks up. This break is suitable for intermediate and advanced-level surfers. The surf here is somewhat consistent (6/10) and will get insanely crowded (9/10). The best winds are from the Northeast. The best swells are from the South, Southwest, and West. Works on a low to mid-tide best.
We recommend wearing board shorts or a bikini year round as water temperatures range between 29 and 27 degrees. See the temperature chart below for more data on this.
