Surf has been off and on lately, good winds in the morning that usually flop around onshore for the afternoon. Some days stay offshore. We have been receiving rain 2 or 3 days a week. The best wave has been the point left at Los Playones – The Louvre. Nobody has come through in weeks so been surfing all alone. We are reserved full for most of October so call or email for availability. October should be similar with up and down conditions but with consistent swell, there are sure to be some great surf sessions.
A great weekend of surf in Playa Hermosa. Sunny tropical conditions, light offshore winds, waves chest to overhead with all spots working. The point looked so flipping fun with perfect sets arriving about every 6 minutes and a crazy amount of perfect unridden lefts. Of course nobody surfing. Painfully beautiful to watch with my only shortboard just broken. The wind turned light onshore early afternoon for a couple of hours, then a shower passed before dark, cleaning up for a sunset session. Enjoyed the seabreeze cooling off the ocean. Surf forecast is to settle a bit then the biggest swell of the year is headed this way. We are looking for talented surfers to help us. We can lodge AND feed you ”gratis”if you can help us show the potential of the surf here. Experienced only. Email us for details…
Sunny and offshore winds this morning with consistent head high swell in the water. Overhead sets are frequent and the Louvre was perfect this morning with nobody out. I took the longboard out at the mellowest section of Playa Hermosa for a few rides before finishing off at the low tide reef out front. Nice variety today before the wind turned light onshore early afternoon.
A ghost borrowed our camera for a while, so havent put photos in too long. After almost a week of smaller waves, swell is increasing, looks to be in the chest to head high range with fair to good form and nobody out. Photos are of the reef out front. Looks mellow but fun…gonna check the other spots at the fuller tide. Nice here with rain off and on and some light onshore winds in the afternoon, but typical for this time of year. The rain is very much needed and the locals are taking advantage catching yummy shrimp and crabs from the estuary.
This morning on an outgoing tide, light and variable winds at report time and mostly waist to shoulder high waves breaking over the low tide reef out front. Sets coming about every 6 or 8 minutes. Our place sits directly in front of this break, just on the other side of the estuary. I have not seen anybody surfing in days. Although the winds are not perfect offshore, the weather has not been overly rainy here. The winds are typcially onshore here in the late morning to early afternoon, but the reef holds the wave form and if you have a fun board you like to ride in onshore conditions…still potential for fun surfing without a crowd.
After a couple of days of really fun overhead swell, the surf has dropped a bit, although still lots of waves in the chest to head high range. Every now and then a bigger set pops through. Pics are outback at the low tide reef with some good lefts working and, once again, nobody on it. Thanks for looking at our report and be sure to contact us if you are planning a surf trip to Nicaragua. We can help you score!
The swell size is holding nicely today, just a bit less consistent and not as heavy as yesterday when the swell peaked in size. Sets are still providing solid head high to 2 or 3 feet overhead on the biggest ones. The wind again perfect all day like yesterday. Playa Hermosa Central handles strong swell much better than El Transito and so that is just one of the reasons we moved our surf camp here. Also, there was NOBODY surfing here and the waves were really, really good all week. If you are planning a surf trip and you like the idea of discovering new waves and experiences, let us know. This is one of the last seldom-touched stretches of coastline of unridden quality surf that still exists in Nicaragua and it will not last forever. Call us or email us for reservations / availability and thanks for looking…
5 different waves working today in Playa Hermosa with the Reef looking fun early. As the tide filled in the other spots were turning on nicely. Mounds was making a long rolling A frame and there were 2 or 3 different peaks looking fun at Kiddie Pools…..with nobody surfing all of this. I told my fiancee as we were walking to the rocky point left that with the conditions today there were so many waves and spread out different peaks that the beach could handle 50 surfers or more. But there were ZERO. It is still like a dream walking this beach and seeing nobody surfing on a day like today. Just one local fisherman handlining off the beach. This small stretch of beach is still as quiet and untouched as ever. We arrived at the point and I was super pleased to find consistent head high lefts with some sets up to 2 feet overhead. I was the only one surfing with my choice of waves. Some sets were arriving with 8 or 10 waves and the bigger, the better. This is what I love about GreenSurf not being located in El Transito any more. The surf closes out in El Transito much of the high wave season because the small crescent shaped beach just cannot handle long period waves. Almost every wave I took today provided room for at least 3 turns…..and I surf slow, there are 2 distinct barrel sections on the wave and it can be longgg…..I had 7 turns on one wave that ran from the peak all the way to the far inside bay. 8 out of 10 today and jelly legs from a sweet 2 and half hour session. Thanks to my beautiful fiancee Janeth for taking photos. more swell in the water, maybe a bit more energy for tomorrow Thursday and still energy in the water for the coming week.
After the first pulse of swell filled in yesterday, the current swell has settled in and the waves are running in the chest to head high range and quite consistent. I did not see anybody surfing in Playa Hermosa all day. The wind was perfect today until about 11 30, then it turned very light onshore. The next several days should be offshore all day. We will see…Tomorrow will arrive a new pulse of swell that should provide a couple of days of overhead energy.
