December 01, 2016 – Thank you to all of the travelers over the past 7 years, for the memories and support. GreenSurf was an epic ride, but I could never recover from personal mistakes. I thought I could fight the drug mafia and organized crime in Nicaragua, but that was just a fantasy. So now it is time to make a change in order for me and my beautiful girls to live peacefully. Much love……..

The cow says ”the waves are good and the price is right, come to GSN, eat more chiken and fish and surf good uncrowded waves”. What are you waiting for?

And special thanks to Cesar Medina at SurfNica Magazine for helping us to promote responsible tourism in the north – central pacific region.
GSN SurfNica1

In 2016, we are continuing to fine tune our surf adventures, adding more eco/adventure tours, making improvements to the GreenSurf facilities & services, a community project to help educate and organize the citizens of this beautiful paradise to become more self-motivated and creative with trash management / recycling while promoting alternative opportunities to achieve individual independence, especially for the young. And of course continuing random acts of love and working hard to increase your chances of epic memories while providing a safe and comfortable experience. Thanks for checking us out…

Book your trip of a lifetime now!
