  • 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 is caused by extremely strong winds coming from the Caribbean being funneled between the land north and south of Lake Nicaragua and directly toward the Pacific. These trusty off-shores have blessed southern Nicaragua with a massive advantage when it comes to surf.  Thanks to the lake effect we are able to focus on which spot to hit and at what tide versus constantly worrying about onshore winds.  If you miss the dawn patrol or mid morning session luckily in southern Nicaragua the wind will stay offshore all afternoon and into the evening so you can catch up later in the day. If you want to rip perfectly groomed wave faces and stand in non-crumbling barrels the south of Nicaragua is for you!!! nicaragua

  • 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…
