    You nailed it. Even in Madrid fakin' it. You should stay home, though. More waves for me.

    Just got back from 2 weeks in Nica. Santana/popoyo area. Surfed everyday only got in a car once walked everywhere. Got rid of my winter gut. Waves were a C. There was a chest or maybe at the smallest waist hi wave tk be found everyday but the wind was really out of control a few days. Also the crowds at popoyo still kind of suck even though there were almost no tourists around... The locals have it dialed... Still got plenty of waves but a lot more hassling then I'd like to do on a trip. The five days that Santana were working were much better... Surfed it with just one dude out on the last day and there were some great barrels coming in.... F spirit Airlines they wouldn't let us take our boards even with a fee what a load of crayp. Overall, had a great trip but don't think I would go there at this time of year again....maybe I've been spoiled by all the epic uncrowded/empty surf in Mexico and standards are too high though. Was debating between Rivas area and closer to chinendega and chose Rivas because I thought the crowds would be light for once but the wind really messes things up... The north area has much lighter winds this time of year and some of the beaches are best on a tiny swell... Then again I bet finding a board to rent would've been tough up there...hope everyone has a good 2019 and gets to travel and catch some waves...

    Ya spirit was supposed. To be 100$ for two boards each way.. Then we go to check in and they had a "luggage embargo" going for the holidays.... They said we could fly back with the boards though... Cause that helps

    buddy said he got a CR trip to Nosara in several weeks as a xmas gift. naturally, another buddy and I upon hearing the news figured we should get a trip going- at the time he's going so we didn't have to be real jelly. plan is last wknd of January - either St Aug - hotels on the beach - or Flagler - Topaz Hotel likely - thanks for the recommendation by the way. Also, PR likely first wknd of March. Less of a surfing trip but more of a nudge for a buddy to get off the Continental US. would be San Juan for a couple days and down to Ponce for the fest. my non-surfing trip is in between - NBA Allstar game in CLT mid Feb. hopefully 2019 fares well for me

    embargoes suck. thankfully I'm type A and was on top of things but there were a ton of people who got screwed in CR.

    I see it in her eyes.......a reflection of the Tri-Color, and I hear the music in the background....La Marseillaise....
    Looks as if we may be returning to France, this time to include Hosegor, Biarritz, and San Sebastian in Spain.
    Aww shucks dear, bring me to my knees...make me go to a surf spot!!

    Killer! San Sebastian can be very crowded... but if you're on it early, you'll get a few to yourself.

    Had a few fun sessions at Anglet. Maybe you'll even trade waves with Curren :eek:

    Either Barbados or Rincon. Can’t make up my mind, but departure will be in 10-11 days. Whatever one I don’t choose, I’ll go to later in the year.

    What say you, swellinfo friends? I’ve done Rincon once, last January. Haven’t done Barbados yet, but have been wanting to get there for a while now.

    My best friend and I are particularly leaning one way, but I won’t say which, so not to sway anybody!
