I've actually been to Manuel Antonio at that size...go to playa espadilla at the north end and it should be working. Not epic (shoulder-head high), but the other side of the trade off is that manuel antonio is one of the prettiest places in the world, lots of good lodging and restaurants.
Thanks Imperial thats kind of what i figured. I surfed Hermosa @ 1-2 overhead and its was heavy enough. My bud is set up at Las Ohlas so we'll prob be cheering from the deck with a cold one. Ive surf Santa Theresa a lot and when its been pumping all I've seen is mega closeout. Barranca sounds like the best bet since its close to where we are. After this flat spell I'm stoked to get some decent waves and with any luck the East Coast will turn on when we get back!
