So the first half of November has passed, it seems, nearly at the speed of light.  The surf has been smaller and less consistent but there is no reason whatsoever to complain as it is still surfable on a shortboard outback at Pistols.  And there is nobody around…I’ve been surfing alone, period.  For example, the past 2 days (14 & 15), the swell measurements according to magicseaweed were about 1.5 feet @ 12 or 13 seconds.  For most surf breaks, this reveals itself with very small surf – longboardable only…or on a little Al Merrick biskit or similar.  But with patience, outback at Pistols, there are some decent peaks coming through and providing enough speed to do some technical surfing.  The tide pool feeding the wedging peak off of the rock is critical as it provides that extra boost of speed off of the peak that is so crucial.  Sometimes I sit for a gruelling 10 – 15 minutes waiting for a set, but they always come.  Meanwhile I get lost in the gorgeous scenery.  There are small but hollow, makeable barrels and plenty of sections for turns, hacks and airs.  For those of you in Northeast Florida, it is like surfing Vilano or Micklers or South Jax Poles on a fun summer day, waist to chest high with an occasional larger peak, but some critical differences – a consistent, light offshore breeze and….just 1 person surfing….what!!!????  And dare I say that the view 360 degrees is breathtaking and I will never get bored of it.  The main beach is suitable for longboarding with some super mellow lines.  I haven’t surfed over there in at least a week though as there has been no need to take the 5 minute walk.  All photos are from the past couple days.  Finally, I would like to encourage you to take a look at the GreenSurf & Modern Yoga Retreat that is scheduled to take place next year.  We are super excited about it, so check out the details.  Thanks again to all who have wrote such nice reviews on TripAdvisor.  We really appreciate it! And thanks for checking out the GSN website!  Happy holidays, peace and love to all…and beans and rice and surf!!!!!!!!!!!

“We went to GreenSurf Nicaragua (GSN) in august, located in a small town El transito, away from the tourism crowd, with a lot of charm and with genuinely nice people. We wanted to try the SCLAT package (Surf, Culture, Love & Adventure Tour). Turns out we are the first one to take that package, and seriously, we don’t understand why it wasn’t selected before, it’s really worth every penny. Your days are pack with plenty of surfing, visiting, organizing a community activity (we repaired and painted the local park), hosted a lunch for the local children, visited a sugar can farm, climbed the cerro negro, milked the cows and did a horseback riding tour. Everything that was included in the package was offered to us. This package is perfect for those that want to surf and want to live the local Nicaraguan experience. Also, we weren’t expert surfers, and Dave really understood our needs, I took us to the perfect waves for our level. Dave is a passionate guide, and he was an important part of the great experience we had at GSN. We definitely recommend GSN and we will definitely come back.”  – THANKS SO MUCH EMILIE
