Surfing  Quepos Jettysurfing  quepos

Although not always the most popular choice for surfing, Quepos jetty has can have some great surf and some amazing lefts.  Like with most surfing, surfing Quepos jetty has a lot to do with tide, swell, and water conditions.  The jetty is best to surf during high tide and when the time is right, surfers find a very long left that can be fun for hours at a time. Waves are not huge around the jetty but they are smooth slow braking, and easy to ride.  A downside to surfing the jetty is that the water is pretty polluted by the city of Quepos and during low tide, a lot of dirty water is released into the ocean near the best surf location (best time to go is high tide, when the water is being pushed back up stream).  Getting to the surf break is not as easy as many other beach breaks. To enter the water you need to go to the end of the molle near the marina wall. From  there you have to paddle out pretty far to the main surf break. Many surfers find it to be too much work but others say it’s worth the trouble because the long left is that amazing. Surfing Quepos is overall a fun place to surf.
