  • Hey guys its Will again. So the swell has arrived and the waves are looking great for the weekend. All the reports are showing 4-6 FT waves with plus size sets always rolling through for the next couple of days. The wind will be offshore like always and the surf is going to be perfect. The Jersey boys enjoyed their stay at Giant’s Foot and took off back to the states on Wednesday. They surfed numerous breaks all up and down the coast including Colorado, Santana, Panga Drops, Amarillo and more. The beginners who are still here are definitely enjoying their time as well and are getting better every day. South Amarillo is a perfect beach for any new surfer to work on their technique and style. This weekend there will be a huge festival in Playa Gigante that will certainly be action packed. The Full Moon Party that happens every year attracts locals and tourists from all over and the beach is full of thousands of people. Between the festival and the swell, there should be plenty to do this weekend! This will be my second full week here and I am definitely enjoying my time. Nicaragua is definitely a place I recommend every surfer to visit! We just finished up breakfast and are heading out to surf so enjoy your Friday and have a great weekend!

  • The lake effect of southern Nicaragua is surely one of the largest advantages to surfing in this region of Central America. With consistent swell, these strong off-shore winds groom the surf all day long, giving you the ability to surf multiple sessions and choose ideal tides without being compromised by afternoon on-shores. The Lake effect…

  • Playa Colorado is by far one of the most famous spots in Nicaragua and rightly so. The name itself conjures images of deep cavernous Nicaraguan barrels and broken boards. This beast of a wave breaks over a shallow sandbar, left and right, depending on the condition of the sandbar. To really score it the river…

  • I know, life is pretty rough for us down here. But our short break of over-rich american food, TV shows about famous people whose soul source of fame is that one same show, and explaining to family that ebola isn't a 'thing' in Nicaragua has come to an end. Things have been pretty flat and…

  • Ok. That's a lie. We can't promise that. But... There's a lot you can learn from video review. Ever wonder why your frontside turns just aren't making tight arcs like the pros? Look at your arm placement. Now look at the pros. See the difference? You get the point. In addition to video review, our…
