I just got back from hermosa yeterday. i was there for three weeks. Nothing but onshore, waist high closeouts. Ive never seen it that bad. I go to CR alot. and Hermosa is usually a sure thing. Its their summertime and it sucks. dont go until april.thats usually when the wet season starts and it gets real good. Then sep-dec rainy season is huge everyday. crsurfcam.com is a good link to the live cam on hermosa. You can check it out for yourself. And the water is never that blue.
