Playa Gigante is a location with two beautiful and relatively empty sandy beaches, providing a tranquil and secluded atmosphere. GFS has been in operation since 2004. Giant's Foot Surf appeals to those seeking a more authentic and off-the-beaten-path experience. GFS guests benefit from the local expertise of a staff that has been with the lodge for over a decade, giving you an immersive experience. GFS offers a great chance to experience the uniqueness that Nicaragua has to offer, committed to showcasing the local culture, traditions, and natural beauty. Giant's Foot Surf's knowledgeable local surf guides and instructors provide quality instruction and guidance for surfers of all skill levels.

18 Years of Experienced Surfing in Nicaragua

We are proud to be one of the longest running Nicaragua surf camps.

You'll get the best waves for surfing Nicaragua when they are firing at their best.

If Colorados is working at six in the morning, our boat is at Colorados at six in the morning.

By eight, we've already crushed out a dawn patrol session. We're refueling with a delicious homemade breakfast back at the surf camp when other boats are just heading out for their first session.

If you want an experienced Nicaragua surf camp, you want Giant's Foot Surf!

"Amazing Surfing Vacation in Playa Gigante"

"My sister and I spent a week at Giant’s Foot Surf Camp Nicaragua a little while ago and we cannot stop talking about it. Waking up every day to the waves crashing, drinking our morning coffee in a hammock on the beach, taking advantage of all the unlimited Tonas we could drink – we had such a great experience. The surf guides (Spencer, Kyle, & Diego) are all great. They are not only fun to hang out with but we are beginners and they did a great job picking spots for us that fit our surf experience but were not super crowded. They really try to tailor the experience to your surf level & how much you want to surf."

~ Rachel 

"Sarf all day, Tonas all night!"

"I just got back from the trip a week ago, was down there with a big group for a week and had a blast!! We had waves and got in the water 3 times everyday. Food was great, beers were cold, rooms were comfortable. This is definitely a real surf camp, you will be very comfortable, for the price its golden, but don't expect the four seasons. Show up ready to surf, bring plenty of sunscreen, be prepared for strong offshore winds, powerful surf and you will have a blast."

~ Alex

"Epic first surf trip"

"A mate recommended GFS to me from his trip a couple of years ago and now I can see why. The swell gradually dropped off during the week I was there but we always managed to get good, fun waves. Kyle and Justin were awesome guides and felt like they were constantly trying to make sure we had the best sessions possible. We hit a range of breaks and they offered just the right amount of guidance/encouragement when necessary. Couldn't have asked for much more from them - thanks lads!"

~ Tristan 

"Perfect Surf Camp!"

"This place is exactly what you are looking for with a surf camp which is why I keep going back. The kitchen staff is incredible making some of the best food I've ever had, and always keeping the place clean. Having the boat take you to any surf break on the coast is a dream and I have gotten the best waves of my life at the spots they've taken me. You can't beat the fact that the winds are always offshore and there is always some good swell in the summer months. Luke and Christian are the current surf guides and are not only great people but also great surfers and made this trip a blast. The new camp owners Trevor and Tara really care about the camp and have made a ton of improvements to it and they are really fun people to hang out with. Couldn't recommend this place enough."
