Perfect Reeling Left Hand Point

The wave is excellent for both longboards and shortboards. Greg Noll and Rabbit Kekai’s annual Legends events were held here. This is where surf legends from the past came to catch up,  ride, and compete in longboard championship events. Henry Ford (President of the Long Board Association of America) and International Surf Properties partner, already calls Boca Barranca Beach and Surf Resort home.

Boca Barranca

Surfers refer to this area as a secret paradise and one of the best waves in Costa Rica. This is a truly epic point break with every wave wrapping flawlessly into the bay. The property sits directly across the estuary is protected national parkland and will never be built upon.
