Costa Rica's most renowned break would have to be Witch's Rock (roca bruja), made famous by Bruce Brown's 1994 footage in Endless Summer II. Surfing the break then required a long four wheel drive followed by a long hike and paddle through a crocodile-infested river. While one can still drive to the break, several boats can be chartered out of Playa del Coco. Nick, Drew, and I were lucky to have internet at our Tamarindo hostel in early August (maybe not lucky, seems like everywhere in Tamarindo has internet). After studying the surf forecast for a couple days, we decided to find a boat to take us to Witch's Rock. We made plans with two Spanish surfers to charter a five-person boat and awoke before dawn to make the nearly two-hour drive to Playa del Coco.
