  • Yup, we are freakin excited. You wanna know why? I could give you hundreds of reasons. The squad is complete, the boat is in top form, the water is perfect, waves are getting better and and and... As I told you hundreds of reasons. And guess what? The season has only just begun. If you haven't put on your boardshorts yet something went wrong. Or you're just overworked. Well we have the medicine for you, SURFING!!!! Another solid week went by as we surfed up to head high Amarillo with a bunch of beginners. Seeing beginners surfing is always a big inspiration for me. The stoke they feel when they ride their first “real” wave. Priceless. You see their smile and feel their happiness from miles away. My first real wave is 5 years ago now. Summer day in Biarritz, France. We surfed Cotes des Basques this day, a long beginner friendly wave. After days of distress at Grand Plage, my friends took me to this wave saying it's gonna be my day. First wave, easy pop up, rode it to the beach. Looked like shit but I felt like Kelly Slater. 25Th of April 2011 will ever be reminded as the day I learned what stoke is. And the day I realized it will never let me go. Never. Dreamin of your first wave now? Want the feeling again? Join us now, we all know you can't wait to get into warm water again. Barrels waitin for you, Boardshort time Baby! written by paul

  • This week was another evidence that local knowledge is money. While everyone tried to score the overhead swell at overcrowded Colorados, Conrad our Head Surf Guide boated us to breaks you only had dreamed of before. Long walls, wide open barrels and no one out. Damn! You're the Man Conrad. With the new week beginning…

  • “The flattest week in decades” is even the nicest description for what we have experienced this week. I mean flat in Nicaragua still turns out to be at least chest high surf and some fun little barrels but maaan you don't see this a lot around here. A week without head high surf, you kiddin…

  •   The staff here at GFS have been busy working very hard this month. Taking guests to the ultimate breaks and surfing our brains out can be quite tiring, but also very rewarding. There's nothing else we'd rather do! We're just wrapping up Semana Santa here in Gigante Bay. Semana Santa is 'Holy Week' for the…

  • The Food at Giants Foot Surf Tours is not just Rice and Beans! The inspiration for this blog post came when I heard a local Nicaraguan band playing a song at our neighbouring Hostel’s open mic night that essentially consisted of the following lyrics, “Rice and Beans, Rice and Beans, every day it’s Rice and…

  • 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. Our last group of guests from…

  • 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…
