RYAN and ERIN
Born and raised on the beach in Ventura, Ca. Ryan is a husband and father of three amazing kids. He grew up surfing, fishing, and sailing. He fell in love with the ocean and the beach life style at a very young age. After many years of working in the states, his kids and him set a goal to own a surf camp where the waves were perfect, the fishing was unreal, and the mood was mellow. When you come you will surf with Ryan out front, have jam sessions at night on guitars, and drink a cold Tona or two as you share your love of the search. Ryan and Erin are back and forth from states as they have 16 year old and 6 year old daughters in Cali. His son Carter is running the camp full time.
Carter is our camp manager / owner and a strait up surf rat. Carter is currently living and running the camp full time. A California life guard with EMR and CPR certification. Carter is an old soul and finds the best in every single person he comes into contact with. He is always the 1st up and ready to get every guest into the best waves of their life! Most likely you won’t see him much in the water since most of his time is spent deep in the barrel. He’s always up for a trip to Leon, the volcano, or anywhere else our guest want to go. Link up with Carter to get video footage of your trip and possibly make the cut in the weekly video’s he makes.
Alex is our camp Manager. A true professional all the way around. He is the best host you will ever meet, he’ll show you around, cook you the best food of your life, talk story, and show you the hidden magical secrets of Nicaragua. Alex is fluent in English and Spanish. He knows and loves Nicaragua as good as anyone. His love of life, surfing, travel, and culture is top notch. We honored to call him our brother for life!
Bradley is our head Surf Instructor. He has been teaching surfing for years and knows how to get you surfing during your stay. At night, if you are feeling lucky, grab a ping pong paddle and challenge him… he is rarely beaten! Always up for a surf and loves the water!
At 29 years old, Marvin already has 16 years of ocean fishing experience under his belt. Since he was a boy he was launching pangas from the beach at sunset and spending the entire night up to 15 miles out at sea, through wind and rain, hauling nets and long lining. He would return at dawn, to haul the panga, pull the motor, clean the fix, mend the nets and prepare for the next nights run. He has the amazing ability to navigate the panga through overhead shore break and he takes a huge amount of pride in his job. Always the first to greet you with a handsome smile, he’s also great at keeping the boat ship shape and ready for use at a moments notice. If you’ve got a ding, hit him up and he’ll have it fixed up in no time.
GISEL, MARIA AND MARTHA
Gisel grew up in Leon but moved to the coast when she started a family. She takes care of the food preparation and provide the Nicaraguan part of our menu. Maria and Martha also live in Miramar as well as contribute a whole lotta love into the food. Thanks to these ladies, we eat like Kings and Queens.
Zanito the cat, a reliable mouser and the sweetest kitty ever…. except when he’s stealing fish out of the pond. We have three turtles in the pond too, but as we can’t tell them apart, we call them all Pedro.
You will be sure to see this kid around in and out of the water. We often have him over to help out with daily chores in exchange for surfboards and school supplies. Don’t be surprised if you see this kid on the cover of Surfer magazine in the near future!
Buoy is our camp dog. Born in 2016, his mom and brother’s all live in town and he’s a little bro. He’s either hanging at camp, playing on the beach or out surfing with the guides.
