December 09, 2016 – Much love……..

Read why GreenSurf closed and our last goal here

If you are considering staying at Solid Surf Adventures click here and DO YOUR RESEARCH FIRST!!!

If  you would not like to support the international drug trade and those who traffic humans and weapons, do not go to El Transito, Nicaragua. ALL of the foreign-owned hostels / surf camps / hotels there are associated with a Canadian criminal named Aaron Chad Helferty (just google his name) to launder profits made by trafficking cocaine.

Here is a link to a great photo of the group of criminals – starting from left to right – Allison (professional thief and plagiarist – and that is only the beginning), Jhon (thief and possible rapist / murderer – subject of a little known rape allegation regarding a minor in Venezuela. others have noticed his affection for minor-aged girls also), Aaron Chad Helferty in the ballcap (kingpin coke trafficker, woman-beater and all-around piece of shit sociopath), along with his poor wife that is completely controlled by him and lastly, Joel (Jhon’s brother who was one of the biggest crack dealers in N. Florida in Orange Park and currently a big-time player in Puerto Rico) there along with his wife.

Every foreign-owned hospitality business operating in El Transito (some owners profess their love for Jesus Christ and actually do have an arts center/library and/or superficial community program) is ultimately involved with the criminal kingpin who has bought protection from the corrupt police and government.

Here is a link showing just 3 of Aaron’s associates – look on the bottom right-hand corner. He clearly owns the Free Spirit Hostel operating in El Transito as well. The NICARealty website had gone offline after I started documenting their actions on my blog HERE. Since then it has returned online briefly and now is offline again. NICARealty is a partner of a larger corporation called Bien Raices who also associates with Aurora Realty. Aaron probably bought his real estate ‘license’ from this weird guy named Jordan who works in Leon, I am just assuming my speculation is right on the money. The larger the transaction (like real estate), the easier it is to wash large sums of money. I believe that Bien Raices uses Bancentro, which is owned by the Montealegre family – infamous for money laundering and part of the Amador family – which is why many of them call my ex-partner – ‘Uncle Frank’ (Amador)

http://web.archive.org/web/20150504035730/http://www.nicarealtysm.com/

Just in case Allison deletes the ‘real estate’ page off of her website (just like many others she has deleted in an effort to cover her tracks), here is a link to a screenshot of her ‘real estate page’ (it isn’t on the current menu of Solid Surf any more, but the page exists as of 01/08/2017)

There is also reason to believe that him and his associates have done terrible things to CHILDREN in other central american countries. If you consider yourself to be a good person DO NOT SUPPORT THEM WITH YOUR MONEY. Below is a video of Jonathan Ocanto – partial owner of Solid Surf Tours.

you know this is gonna be my house next month (speaking of the GSN property after I had called the owner notifying him of our 30 day departure plans),  MY HOUSE, YOU’RE OUT NIGGA!, HAHAHA, MY HOUSE! YOU OUT!!!”  Those of you who support Solid Surf Adventures or ANY surf camp located in El Transito should think twice. Even if you support the international drug trade – you should think twice.

A solid tidbit of love

Bless those who persecute you and pray for those who despitefully use you. I love all of you.

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?
