Adler was once a town and now the main settlement of Adlersky City District, situated in Sochi, Russia. Adler is now a resort on the coast of Black Sea and it stays in the mouth of river Mzymta.

Adler is popular due to the long coastline and the endless beaches, creating perfect conditions for one of the most popular water sports, surfing. Khosta Rica is one of the beaches that when weather conditions are right, it is almost like most European surfing spots, but without the crowd.

As any of the surf spots in the Black Sea, on the Russian Federation territory, it doesn’t break so often. But when it breaks, you shouldn’t be missing out. Khosta Rica or as you might hear it X.Osta, is one of the public beaches that are in the city and very easy to find.

The point-break waves come from the right with fun power, creating short normal length of waves about 50 m/164 ft and on good days waves can reach up to 150 m/492 ft. The bottom has boulders, so be very careful.

The main wind direction, as given by the Sochi-Adler airport weather station, is coming from many directions and the average air temperature is medium. Best swell direction comes from the east and northeast.

The swell starts working at 1 – 1.5 m/3 – 5 ft and holds up to 3+ m/10+ ft. There are some dangers in the area, such as rips/undertow, some man made dangers such as buoys and pollution.

For the specific spot, it is suggested to check the weather before you go and double check with the webcams. If you see proper lines on the webcams, then it is totally on! There are several descent locations in the Black Sea that are more than worth checking out and this is one of them.
