We’re just wrapping up Semana Santa here in Gigante Bay. Semana Santa is ‘Holy Week’ for the people of Nicaragua, and by ‘Holy Week’ they mean ‘Chill On the Beach and Drink All the Toña You Can Drink Until We’re Doing Backflips Off of the GFS Panga Boat Week’. The beaches, breaks, and streets get pretty crowded, which is not typically the norm for Gigante, but it’s been amazing getting to experience the culture of the Nica people this week alongside a full house of guests!
The staff here at GFS have been busy working very hard this month. Taking guests to the ultimate breaks and surfing our brains out can be quite tiring, but also very rewarding. There’s nothing else we’d rather do!
Aside from Semana Santa, this week has been one of the smallest weeks of swell we’ve seen since the season kicked off. It’s about waist-high for the week, but we’re not stressing it! MagicSeaweed predicts an insane overhead swell next Tuesday after a month-long surfing streak and a much-needed lull. “We’ve had time to hike, fish, and explore this beautiful beach.”
The season is really starting to pick up and we’re getting super excited! After a nice little break we’re ready for the Pacific to Bring on the Swell!
