I know that the photos don’t scream Mundaka, but that’s just because as the tide filled in, it was impossible to keep the boat in position to get shots of the waves. Before the magic Mundaka hour we were groveling or shoulder to head high peeler and then the planets aligned and shit got real!
Just read this in the tambor of a grandmother from the deep south saying “MMMMMMMMMM Good!” I mentioned in the last blog that we were going to give Freight Trains a try this morning and we’re glad we did. I’m not what the best part was. We were alone and by that I mean just
After a long wait, kind of like the night before your parents take you to Disneyland for the first time, it was our moment to get on the Matterhorn. Luckily the lines are short and we’ve got the never ending ticket too! The swell arrived pretty much on time, which is rare, and it’s been
While the rest of the world is getting hammered by XXL waves, for once we’re on the short end of the stick and groveling for the occasional knee high wave. Today was a bit better and actually threw a few shoulder high sets, but in the absence of real power we opted to rest and

What you’re not seeing is a fairly substantial flat spell…nothing to see there anyway. This is a compilation of pictures from while I was gone…except that last photos.
What’s up my friends…after a few weeks in beautiful, sunny , rainy, trafficky, freezing California…I’m back in Nicaragua and ready for some action.

After a lot of fireworks on New Years and a big bonfire we’re ready for 2016! this year we’re hoping to do a lot more surf school and yoga retreats! plus the guided surf trips you all love. The sand bar at Puerto Sandino is making a good recovery and could be better than ever!
What’s up friends? Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and all that! Some of you know I’ve been home spending time with the family. I left Keith and John in charge and they’re seeing to it that the guests are getting their wave time. It doesn’t look like it’s been all that great, but probably some good
