Located in Guanacaste, Costa Rica, Samara is a fun and fast reef break that offers up speedy walls to rip into. The waves here can be challenging to surf and break for up to 100 meters over a rocky bottom.
What are the best surf conditions for Samara?
Gets good between chest-high and overhead. We recommend riding a longboard when smaller and a shortboard then a 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 generally be uncrowded (3/10). The best winds are from the Northeast. The best swells are from the Southwest. Works on a mid-tide best.
We recommend wearing board shorts or a bikini year round as water temperatures range between 29 and 27. See the temperature chart below for more data on this.
