Santa Teresa is a year-round swell magnet. No matter the time of year there is always amazing consistent surf, warm water and sunsets to make every evening session worth it. The rainy season of June-October is when south swells really light up the area. The dry season months of November-May capture exciting combo swells with light offshore winds to make for superbly clean conditions.
