June 07, 2016 – After a few days of some steady rain that is very much needed, the skies have cleared a little bit. The estuaries are filling up slowly and the natural life surrounding us seems to be happier –  singing, chirping and chattering. As far as the surf goes, the last long period swell has faded and we now have short period swell along with calm to light onshore winds. Normally, the winds onshore really mess up long period waves, but with the short fetch of wind off of the ocean combined with short period waves, the surf quality is still okay for fun sessions –  that is if you have the right board. I would not have paddled out today on a 6´thruster, rather, a 5´6´´ quad fin board better for surf that has a softer lip. That being said, the inside section was catching underneath waves coming in at about shoulder high with a perfect wall for hitting the lip hard. Plenty of availability right now in the new place and the pool is almost ready! Thanks for looking… IMG_1425 IMG_1426 IMG_1427 IMG_1428 IMG_1429 IMG_1430 IMG_1431 IMG_1432 IMG_1433 IMG_1434 IMG_1435 IMG_1437 IMG_1439 IMG_1440 IMG_1441IMG_1362 IMG_1375 IMG_1386 IMG_1405 IMG_1412 IMG_1415

June 02, 2016 – Today the sun returned along with some fresh offshore breezes. We enjoyed the glassy surface conditions until about 11, when the wind turned onshore. Consistent head high swell slowly fading today, with fair to good form. Some underlying wind swell is doubling up some waves and making a little weird at times, but fun, 6 out of 10, I would give it this morning. Surfed the low tide reef first for about an hour then moved over to the mid tide session at KPs. Los Playeros point working nicely too with 150 meter lefts bending into the little bay. Photos are from the reef and KPs. Will post more photos of other breaks walkable from our compound so you can see the variety here. Just Marco and I surfing. 5 beds available currently.IMG_1221 IMG_1229 IMG_1232 IMG_1236 IMG_1237 IMG_1243 IMG_1246 IMG_1250 IMG_1251 IMG_1256 IMG_1259

June 01, 2016 -Yesterday and today similar with consistent head high + surf with fair to sometimes good form with the winds being calm to light and variable up until mid morning. Now the wind is onshore but not too fast, so if you have the right board, very surfable on the right spot locally. Some secret peaks working okay today with 5 beds available currently.IMG_0939 IMG_0947 IMG_0998 IMG_1028 IMG_1031 IMG_1037 IMG_1041 IMG_1063 IMG_1092 IMG_1127 IMG_1133 IMG_1147 IMG_1159 IMG_1168 IMG_1169 IMG_1174 IMG_1191 IMG_1197

May 30, 2016 – The camera finally arrived a long with Marco last night. Thanks so much, Marco! We woke up to increasing swell in the head high range with overhead sets with new long period swell filling in. The winds came cross onshore funking up the surface conditions a bit. KPs was not wanting to work with the conditions so we walked to a spot I thought might be better…and it was. A bigger rock reef set up with a left that has a couple of peaks, the first peak offering a sketchy, but makeable barrel and then a couple more sections of reef for shredding and then another shallow inside section. Besides the point left at Miramar, this is one of the better high tide options in this region, especially when there is consistent head high + swell. Due to difficult land access the wave is still quite hidden, so we are going to enjoy these days, even though the wind was not perfect offshore. We will see what happens tomorrow morning. Gonna be checking some other spots. There are 4 beds available right now. Thanks for looking…IMG_0817 IMG_0842 IMG_0847 IMG_0860 IMG_0868 IMG_0872 IMG_0873 IMG_0883IMG_0908IMG_0805IMG_0799IMG_0887

To help celebrate our relocation, we will be offering a 20% discount on our Simple Green surf adventure for groups of 2-3, 25% discount for groups of 4-6 and a 30% discount for groups 6 and larger.

You can reserve your dates from now until the end of the year, depending on availability. We are really looking forward to serving our clients here in the future and, as always, appreciate very much your support! If you have any questions at all, just send me an email or call the mobile … 505-8154-0337 (Movistar).

Note – There was a couple travelers that put a deposit on our S.C.L.A.T. package back in November of last year and then completely lost touch with me.  I had sent multiple emails with no response within FaceBook and personal email.  So…Courtney and Sam, wow, I hope you 2 are okay! We will apply your deposit to the next travelers who would like to experience the S.C.L.A.T. So on that note, those of you who are interested in the fullest experience that we have to offer (Surf, Culture, Love & Adventure), you will receive a $500 discount, thanks to the cancellation.  

Book your all-inclusive SIMPLE GREEN adventure – and we actually take you places!!! Finally, I am still reaching out to photographers – surfers. I have been looking for a decent camera set-up for a while now and due to ´whatever circumstances´, I have not been able to acquire one.  My wish is that someone reading this has some decent equipment that is not receiving the use it is capable of and so I would like to offer 1 week accommodations, all meals and a few special surf excursions (based on the quality of camera set-up that I can find). I have no specific requirements as I will trust the right person knows what I need anyway. I am really wanting to get some epic footage up this year.  It has been too long….

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

In 2016, we are continuing to fine tune our surf adventures, adding more eco/adventure tours, making improvements to the GreenSurf services, a community project to help educated and organize the citizens of this beautiful paradise to become more self-motivated and creative with trash management and 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!
