Surfing in playa del coco?

I will be in playas del coco the first and second weeks of february. I know there are plenty of surf spots in the general region. But are there local surf spots within playas del coco. Or will I have to travel to playa hermosa, tamarindo, playa negra , etc. Also is there a surf shop in town and do they do weekly rentals?

Surfing in Playas del Coco is really for beginners - there's not a lot of big waves. You can take a boat trip to Witch's Rock for world-class surfing or head for one of the other excellent beaches -- Playa Negra or Playa Avellenas, south of Tamarindo. Both of these beaches have been featured in surfing movies.

The closest surfing beaches reachable by road would be Playas Grande,Tamarindo,or Avellanas, or those a bit further south as mentioned by Hattie.
