Surf Description

Yes, it is true: South-western Nicaragua receives 300+ days of offshore winds per year. The constant South swells, warm and pristine water, and the beautiful untouched surroundings, make our region a true surfers paradise with countless waves to explore. Surf all day long and on any tide. See below for a summary of some of the local breaks:

Playa Santana – our front yard - 1 minute walk
A super fun, peaky, barrelling beach-break with three well defined peaks. Santana is a very consistent wave that breaks on most days throughout the year. Works best on a higher tide. Just walk out of your front door and get shacked!

Playa Rosada – a 10 min. walk around the rocks
A short walk south around the rocks gets you into another dream set-up: Playa Rosada. Rosada’s lefthanders break fast and powerful over rocky reef. Watch out for the really shallow, thick lipped section on the take-off. This is not a beginners wave. Works best on a low tide.

Outer Reef – a 20 min. walk along the beach (or 5 min. drive)
A Heavy, big-wave slab. Very big, very shallow and very hollow. Starts working at 10ft.+ and holds anything, as long you are prepared for it. Bring your gun.

Playa Popoyo – a 30 min. walk along the beach (or 5 min. drive)
A local classic. Clean and fun waves breaking over a rock reef bottom. The left is usually longer and cleaner but do not forget to keep your eyes open for the occasional perfect right that might sneak through. Breaks throughout all tides and is rippable from 2 to 10ft+.

The breaks mentioned above are just the ones within walking distance. Our area is very wave rich and once you hop in a car or in a boat, there are many more options. There are waves here for every taste, make sure you talk to us about your needs, we will do our best to help you find what you are looking for.
