May 05, 2016 Surf Report

May 05, 2016 – Woke up this morning to overcast, drizzly skies and light onshore winds so the low tide spot out front looked a little sloppy. No worries as we are in much need of rain here on the central pacific coast. I began preparing the shortboards for some ding repair but then the wind turned around offshore at about 11. The water surface was cleaning up real nicely with fun sized swell in the waist to head high range. I did not get to paddle out until about 1, when the wind flopped back around onshore, but still found some mounds to ride on the turbo banana. Since the tide was super full, I started out on the mellowest peak that gave up some easy right-handers. As I was paddling out, 2 locals who were repairing a porch deck on a beachfront house in front of the peak, stopped what they were doing and walked down to the beach to watch me surf, hooting at me as I would take a wave to the inside reef section. It felt so nostalgic as I remember this when I first arrived in this area in 2009, opening GSN first in Playa Hermosa and then the 2nd location at the Pistols surf break in El Transito, before the competition arrived and the soul was still pure. Even before opening GSN and inviting traveling surfers, I remember surfing El Transito with nobody around, just a couple of locals. Now that El Transito is busier than ever, with 3 or 4 newer surf camp options and more surfers in the lineup than ever, we are very content to return to our roots. So as the tide began dropping, I simply paddled 5 minutes over to KP´s for some longer lefts until the tide got too low. Here in Playa Hermosa, it is still pretty much off the grid so typically no other surfers around, unless staying with us. The surf forecast is showing more favorable wind conditions beginning on Friday the 6th and then it looks like we will have very good conditions with some solid swell. We finally got the new internet and WIFI up and it seems to be working great. That being said, please allow us 24 hours for email reply as I am continuing to kill my addictions, including being connected to the internet 24/7. We usually have room, so go ahead and stop on by. It is super easy to arrive – just get to Puerto Sandino or Miramar and ask any moto taxi and they will charge you about 10 dollars for the ride here. Call us on the phone for the quickest response! Thanks for looking. Will get some better photos and video up soon. THANK YOU TO ALL FOR THE RECENT SUPPORT, ESPECIALLY TO OUR FAMILY AND STELLAR FAN BASE.20160505_133352 20160505_133510 20160505_141807 20160505_141812 20160505_142145 20160505_142149
