Where is the best place to surf in Costa Rica in August?
All along the Pacific coast is blazing now with great surf in Jaco, Playa Hermosa, Montezuma, Malpais, just about everywhere right now.
Mentioned in this answer:
Pavones, Witches Rock, Mal Pais, Hermosa, Camaronal! Huge swells this week..huge!
If you're an experienced surfer, you should try Witch Rock (Roca Bruja) inside of Santa Rosa National Park. It is a world class surf spot with great waves!

You should check out Tamarindo. I remember a lot of surfers there, but if you are a Pro waves might be too small. Maybe Montezuma has better waves, I remember the water being quite rough down there.
