  • It’s finally here! The beginning of our 2015 season has arrived! The last few weeks have been busy to say the least but hard work pays off and we’re stoked on the adventures to come! Our head surf guide Conrad is currently putting the final touches Vale La Pena (our boat) and we’re sure she’ll live up to her name in in the proceeding months. Surprisingly, the winds are still howling but it looks like they’re going to calm down within the next few days. We already have a fantastic lineup of guests including a few familiar faces! We greatly appreciate our seasonal regulars, and hope to gain a few more this season. Whether or not you’ve stayed with us in the past, you’re guaranteed to feel right at home! We’re getting only good vibes from our new staff and there will be no shortage of energy- they’re just as surf hungry as you are! There are still some openings, but this season is gearing up to be a busy one so book now! You only regret the opportunities you don’t take! We welcome all levels of surfers and our location lends to that. Nicaragua’s waves are extremely diverse, offering something for everyone! Keep an eye out for deals and updates as the season progresses and make sure to follow us on Instagram, twitter, and Facebook.

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • 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,…
