Witches Rock (Roca Bruja) is a world class wave. If you've been surfing Tamrindo all week its worth the 50 bucks just to see it and say you went. Its a huge sand bottom beach and your paddling from the boat into the line up so at you'll be spared an ass kicking paddle out for your first wave. Was there twice a few weeks ago and even when its small its still real fun and both days I went it was almost empty. Plus it cost me 250 to rent the boat so 50 ain't too shabby. Good luck!
I drove there with friends from Tamarindo, which involved around 7 hours of traveling (including the 5 mile 'road' into the national forrest, which took the majority of our time). It was totally worth it. Scored my first legit barrel there. It was just perfect reeling overhead barrels, almond shaped and forgiving.
dont you need a solid swell in order for witch's and ollie's to be worth the trip? and if so isnt it always smaller there then more exposed beaches? trying to learn because i leave for longosta on friday. also where is the best website to check the surf in costa. swellinfo is killer for my local break but for costa they split the entire west coast into only 3 sections. surfline doesnt update more than a few times a week and magicseaweed always calls it bigger than it really is. they are good with period prediction though.
