Nicaragua Surfing and Travel

Surfline wrote an article calling for the best surf of the 2012 season to be found in NICARAGUA!   And 4th of July did not disappoint – though we were beginning to wonder…  All the models called for an epic southern swell arriving the first week of July with good direction, perfect seconds, and just the right amount of offshore lift from Nicaragua’s ever present offshore winds.  What we got in the days proceeding was a lake effect of sorts – in that it was just about as flat as it ever gets in Nicaragua followed by howling offshore winds that produced massive white caps and blown-out waves…

We went to bed to howling winds on July 3rd – with disappointed and equally bummed out Columbian guests who had flown in at the last minute for the predicted swell… We woke very early July 4th with the moon shining bright on the Pacific to very still winds – a perfect light offshore – the howling winds had laid down and let the swell do its thing…

And do its thing it did – Nicaragua does NOT disappoint!  Who needs fireworks on the 4th of July when the waves are bombs?  Marsh surfed the OUTERREEF with Robert and came away with only a sliced toe, and Auggie initiated local St. Augustine surfer and best buddy Ben Basili to the infamous and firing POPOYO!!  It was a good day…

 

Yes, there may be some things that are worth giving up today – five dollar cups of coffee, two hundred dollar designer jeans, ten dollar movies… But as families are finding ways to save, they are also finding better ways to spend their money and spend time together. When was the last time you had breakfast, lunch, and dinner with your family? For that matter, when was the last time you caught your dinner! I have to admit, my family is quite lucky… We live in Nicaragua for 6 months out of the year and every day feels like vacation. We wake every morning without an alarm clock to the sun rising over the volcano. The first order of the day is simply walking out on the porch and checking the waves. I make a fresh pot of Nicaraguan coffee (which costs less than 5 dollars for the entire bag of beans!) The family spends the largest portion of the day TOGETHER, usually surfing, swimming or hiking – but most importantly, whatever is it, even if it is nothing or simply reading – we are doing it together.

We invite you to bring your family to Two Brothers Surf Resort on Nicaragua’s Pacific Coast. It is a short flight from the United States and you will probably spend less on your vacation than the money you would spend at home during the same time!

Bienvenidos!
