  • 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. In fact, when we pulled up, we were so stoked to get wet we forgot to take the time to figure out how to properly mount our new GoPro! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hvIBEujas50

  • The first real glimpse of the southern swell has come right on schedule. We always tell people that it turns up around the first week of March, and 2014 kept us to our word. We've had two days of head high sets pounding into Amarillo. It has been the early season, immature swell that makes…

  • 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 pine for…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • 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. [slider_pro id="3"]

  • An 18 second period is supposed to be showing up aaaaany time now, and we are supposed to be getting a little swell later in the week. Nothing crazy, but more than we've had. The entire pueblo is on standby. We will get a few pictures up when it gets here. In the meantime, here's…

  • First off I would like to thank our AMAZING guests from this week, Kirsten and Leslie. We got a little too busy at the camp and left your guys hanging on the Giant's Foot Surf Report. Amarillo has been fun and consistent with knee to waste high waves and consistent offshore winds. It's been great…
