Giant’s Foot Surf Nicaragua was founded in 2004 with the vision of offering a one-of-a-kind surf vacation experience found nowhere else in Nicaragua. One that makes our guest feel at home, and makes us feel like our guests are more like our friends than our clients while still providing a high level of service. Our team has really made this dream a reality. When you come to stay with us we are your friendly hosts, knowledgeable surf buddies, and hard working staff all rolled into one.

The Giant’s Foot Surf Team
Bryce Kuklok – Camp Manager
My name is Bryce, and I studied International Relations and Political Science at UC Davis. I drifted around Nicaragua for a year, trying to decide where I should spend my twilight years and came across Gigante, Nicaragua.
After falling in love with the town, a deep depression set in due to the fact that it already had an awesome surf camp; Giant’s Foot Surf. When I was on the brink of giving up and moving to less paradise-like environs, the staff of GFS opened their loving arms to me, and welcomed me home.
I now spend my days maintaining pipes, maintaining air conditioners, maintaining the roof, maintaining engines, (you probably get the idea by now) and when time permits, surfing.
El iguano, aka wave whisperer, aka oracle, aka conrad, aka tortuga, aka el capitan, aka Rad, this is my 5th season here at GFS and 4th as head surf guide. That’s over 2000 surf sessions, fishing and spearfishing trips in this area.
Whatever size, shape or color wave you want I will find it (conditions permitting). I’ve been in Central America for over 10 years. I worked as a guide and boat captain in Panama prior to Nicaragua doing surf and fishing charters and also in Indonesia for 2 years doing the same.
I’ve settled down here in Nicaragua, it is a unique place with a variety of wave sizes and conditions available everyday and the winds are always offshore. I look forward to showing you around this special place!
Conrad Kozlowski-Noguera – Head Surf Guide
Conner ‘Mahalo’ Wagner – Surf Guide
What’s up everybody! My name is Conner and I was born and raised in Hawaii, on the North Shore of Oahu. I’ve been surfing pretty much my whole life and I love to travel and surf new waves. I just graduated from college in Lake Tahoe, with a degree in Entrepreneurship and Outdoor Adventure Leadership (yes that’s a real degree). After four years in the mountains snowboarding, and surfing cold wind swell on the lake, I was ready to get back to the ocean. Snowboarding is awesome… you just can’t get barreled. One day I plan on owning my own surf camp, so that’s why I am down here learning from the best…..and to surf my brains out.
Favorite movie is Point Break, which is obviously the best performance from The Swayze and Reeves the world has ever seen. I also like 80’s music…. maybe a little too much.
(Editor’s note: He doesn’t even get here until March and the poor kid is already saddled with a nickname.)
My name is Ryan, and I am from Canmore, Alberta. I recently graduated from the University of British Columbia and have spent the last year traveling in California, Mexico and Vancouver Island. Along the way I have caught a serious case of the surf bug and am now completely hooked. I have put my skiing and snowboarding on hold to keep chasing the surf! I am in Nicaragua to explore a cool new surf locale and take care of all the social media and marketing here at Giants Foot.
