Im a noob learning to surf.

I get to galveston as much as I can; about 2x a month.

I can get up and follow a line... but... its usually more like a washing machine out there.

My reason for asking, is me and my girlfriend are going to Tamarindo for a week in April.

Im hoping that Ill get more out of the conditions than I can in Galveston.

Is is easier to surf in clean conditions; Galveston vs CR?

Thanks for your time,
