Well, that was awesome.
Our last group said they keep coming back to Giant’s Foot Surf—and they’ve been back every summer since their first visit six years ago—because every time they do, they score great waves at a diversity of breaks… and this summer was no different. The surf was pumping from Yanqui to Playgrounds and …Continue Reading »
The water’s warm. The wind’s calming down. Fun waves are consistently coming through. Some of our favorite guests are returning to Giant’s Foot for their 6th year in a row. It seems like there’s only one thing missing for it to really feel like the surf season has started around here. That’s a solid swell, …Continue Reading »
With some solid surf coming our way next week, the Giant’s Foot Surf Camp crew rolled out on Vale La Pena and scored a fun warm-up session at Panga Drops this morning. The water was warm, the sets were peaking a little over head high, and there were more than enough waves to go around. …Continue Reading »

We’ve had two days of head high sets pounding into Amarillo. It has been the early season, immature swell that makes …Continue Reading »
And this is pretty much what we expect out of February. The farmland and jungle dry up, the wind whips pretty hard (offshore, but gusty), the water gets chilly thanks to upwelling, and sets tend toward few and far between. Honestly, it’s the time of year that almost makes us expats down here …Continue Reading »
The southern Nicaragua surfing season starts in just one month! We are anxiously waiting for the southern swell to start building and these gusty winds to chill out a bit. It’s always tricky to predict, but my gut instinct having been in Nicaragua for six years now is that we are going to be in …Continue Reading »
We got a new roof on the house this low season which means we can finally put in a new ceiling! The living room already feels bet. Vale is completely sanded and starting to get a fresh paint job to go along with her fresh Suzuki 140 this season. We can’t wait to take her …Continue Reading »
Small southern swell filled in this weekend here’s some photos. Waves picked up again today (tuesday) but not as peaky. Supposed to stay about head high all week.
