Surfing and living on the Pacific Coast of Central America

Welcome to the surfing site hosted by me, Patrick Smyth - this is the sister wite of my website for the times that I visit Whistler British Columbia.


Watch for more updates from Panama and I am now based just west of Panama City in Playa Coronado.


A lot of my time has been spent in Costa Rica, Panama and the Caribbean.  I generally spent time on the breaks of Playa Langosta and south of Witch's rock surf club in the Tamarindo Estuary.  Weekends we tryied to visit Avellanas (my favorite beach), Marbella or Playa Grande.  Past surfing advertures include Bondi Beach, Surfer's Paradise (Aussi), La Jolla, Malibu, Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, Huntington Beach, Chicama (Peru), Baranca, Playa Venao, Pedasi, Santa Catalina, Cambutal, San Bartolo, Manuel Antonio, Vancouver Island and Ventura.  And of course...Ollie's Point and Witch's Rock!!!


This site documents some of the breaks centered around Central America, and any comments and input are much appreciated.
