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. Read our individual bios below.
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
Hi I am Jake Zlotnick and I come from the East Coast of the US. I grew up surfing frigid winters in NJ and spent the last two years studying oceanography at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. I specialize in in-water surf photography and cant wait to link up with you in the barrel. You can see my work on Giants Foot Surf Tour’s Instagram and my Surfline page.
Hey, I am Julia Read from Vancouver, Canada. I am a recent graduate from the New Media, Web Design and Development program at the British Columbia Institute of Technology. I have a passion for all kinds of boarding, especially surfing. Unfortunately, the closest surf to Vancouver requires a ferry ride to the island or a trip across the border. This led me to decide to take a working vacation in Gigante, Nicaragua. I will be handling Giants Foot Surf Tours web presence for the next few months. So if you want to help me out, check out Giants Foot Surf Tours on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Google+. I hope to see you soon in this little piece of paradise!
