Surfing in Quepos
Located in the northern part of Costa Rica’s Puntarenas Province on the Pacific Coast, the small town of Quepos is world-famous for being one of the best fishing spots on the globe. Blessed with an abundance of break points, consistently large swells perfect for surfers of all abilities, Quepos is also one of the most beautiful locations to surf. Located on the edge of the famous Manuel Antonio National Park, Quepos is the regional gateway to a variety of outdoor adventure opportunities.
Conveniently situated just two hours overland from the capital San Jose, Quepos has steadily become one of Costa Rica’s biggest surf meccas, drawing in surfers from every corner of the globe. The small town boasts about 22,000 permanent inhabitants and features excellent bars, cafes, and restaurants.
Waves offshore of Quepos are famous for always breaking to the left, making it easy for surfers to prepare for incoming waves. Less heavy and choppy than the waves at nearby towns like Dominical, the waves offshore of Quepos can often be ridden for several hundred yards. Depending on weather conditions, barreling waves can be found off of Quepos as well. There is a large jetty in Quepos that combines with the exit from the nearby river to provide a smooth wave perfect for fast peeling but no cutbacks.
The Manuel Antonio Surf School and Camp (MASS) is the premier surf camp and school for the Quepos region. With over a decade of experience in helping both first-time and experienced surfers master and improve the ancient sport of surfing, MASS has exclusive access to some of the best break points and beaches in the region.
MASS employs experienced local coaches who will work individually with surf students using advanced surf mechanic techniques and video analysis to make the most out of every wave surfed. All of the coaches employed by MASS have extensive water safety and first aid training. Every morning, MASS coaches survey the weather, waves, and tide to schedule the perfect surfing location for that day.
For travelers who want to explore other options on the water, MASS also organizes fishing tours to pursue species such as roosterfish, yellow fin tuna, big eye tuna, wahoo, sailfish, snapper, marlin, and amberjack. Quepos is the unofficial sports fishing capital of Costa Rica, and anglers can also enjoy productive fly fishing from the coastline as well.
MASS also organizes outdoor adventures such as hiking, bird watching, iguana tours, white water rafting, horseback riding, and kayaking in the nearby Manuel Antonio National Park.
