For many years I have wrote in my journal and made vision boards about a magical place, on a perfect left point break, with amazing food, people, music, fishing, and friends. I would draw this image out over and over and over ….for years in the journal that I write in everyday. A place where people could go to get away from the hustle and bustle of concrete land. Last year on a surf trip, my son Carter and I ended up at the front gates of Surf Tours Nicaragua ( on accident by the way, we thought we were staying somewhere else ) The second the gates opened, we looked at each other and just smiled.. This was it! As we got out of the van, we were greeted by kind people that gave us the tour of the surf camp ..the normal stuff…”we eat 3 times a day when the bell rings, no toilet paper down the toilets, the rad old school library of books up stairs, how the ac worked in the rooms, we met the lovely staff Martha, Gizell, Maria, Beto, and Marvin, and then our guide walked us up onto the Rancho overlooking Punta Miramar….a perfect, barreling left point break about 30 steps on the sand from the rancho! As Carter and I were looking out to the pacific ocean (listening to a steel pulse jam coming from the speaker) we just kept seeing these sheet glass, slabbing left barrels spitting out into the channel! WHAT!! and there was nobody out! We quickly ran and grabbed our boards, threw on our trunks, and had our first dream session together right out front. There is nothing better in life ( for me ) than surfing and snowboarding with my kids! We surfed our brains out until the sun went down then sat up on the rancho with nice cold Tona’s and just smiled. This is where we would start the next chapter of our lives! Since that day, we have had many trips back to this magical place and our now blessed to say, we are the extremely grateful and proud new owners of Surf Tours Nicaragua!
Whatever you can perceive and believe, you can achieve! If you want something in life, get very laser focused on it, set goals, and do things every single day that will get you closer to your goal. There is a lot more to life than just working every single day to pay bills and survive. Your life begins where your comfort zone ends. Get out there and try things, find your passion, and most importantly, find your “why” When you find your “Why” and live doing what your are passionate about, life becomes very very amazing! We are forever grateful for the opportunity to be living our passion, meeting amazing people from all over the world, building a business together as a family, learning about a whole new culture of people, and surfing our brains out as much as possible. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! ~ Ask- Believe – Receive ~ Ryan
