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.
A little bit bigger swell on Saturday with 5 different waves working today, for the beginners, intermediates and the advanced surfer. The south bay had a nice long peeler at the full tide, The REEF was good at the lower tide. KPs was delivering at mid tide. The Louvre had the best waves. I surfed alone at The Louvre. Thanks to my wife for making the walk with me and taking the still shots. Lots of swell on tap for the next 10 days and there is plenty of room available.
The surf started building this afternoon with inconsistent head high sets. Pics are of the REEF out front some time today. Empty lineup painfully beautiful to watch the building sets as I take photos. Inconsistent but good sets at times so what more could you want. Lots of swell in the forecast. All local surf spots will be really good on the right tides if the wind forecast holds. It may get big enough next week to ride some big barrells here…plan on surfing Los Playones a lot during certain times so if you are an experienced surfer and love surfing unknown left points you may wanna stop in.
It has been almost a month since posting surf conditions but thankfully we are up and running again. June was rainy and with more onshore winds than typical, so we decided to utilize the time and concentrate on property renovations. The big pool has been resurfaced and now has fresh paint. We will begin filling the pool with water this week, testing the pump, etc. As for the surf conditions, well, this has also improved over the last week or so. The offshore winds have returned and the waves have been very good. After the biggest swell of the year passing, the waves have settled into the consistent head high range with nearly perfect surface conditions. We are in a pattern now with calm wind early giving way to light/medium offshore winds lasting throughout the day. After not surfing for over 3 weeks I finally was able to make the walk to Los Playones and surf our local rocky point left yesterday…and, wow, it was really good. The inside peak was putting a barrel that reminded me of meatgrinders. Every now and then there were some closed out sets, but the majority of waves were lining up beautifully with a relatively easy take-off for a quick barrel and then 10 seconds of mellower wall for some turns and then an inside race-track section over some shallow rock reef to punt a big air for a nice finish. Of course I was not surfing that great, but the waves were providing opportunity after opportunity. I would rate the current swell an 8 out of 10. So currently in our local beach there are 4 distinct and separate breaks offering a variety of wave types good enough to please surfers who are beginning, or longboarders or aggressive and experienced shortboarders. There are currently 5 beds available up until July 14th, so go ahead and stop by and we will be happy to accommodate you and help you surf some of the better unfrequented waves in this region. If you like the point left at Miramar, but do not like the crowds…you will love it here. Give us a call, shoot us an email or just drop in.
