Nicaragua Surf Report for Wednesday, July 17, 2019

Parker NSR

What’s up everybody?! This is Parker wishing you a happy humpday and welcoming you to another edition of the NSR surf report. Guess what? The waves are fun so I recommend you clicking “read more.”

Parker NSR

Sooooo the ocean is still pumping and the waves are great. Let Ethan Penn start you off on today’s report.

How many of y’all that come here from Florida take that cheap Spirit red eye flight? Probably a good amount, yeah? How many of y’all get off that red eye then lock into a sick one an hour after checking in?

Parker NSR

I’m stoked to have him down here again! He’s a good buddy from the JAX area and his crew is amped for a fun week ahead (Pili’s beach bar, happy hour nachos, boat trips, photogs, in house massage… the whole nine yards). Ohh yeah, and I told y’all Marisombra would be a killer house!

Parker NSR

Bro, I don’t believe that you haven’t surfed in a few months. I mean, East Coast summers do get rough, but you’re acing this one!

Parker NSR

Henry is part of the crew and toughed it out for the morning session (cough cough Parker #2 and Alec cough cough). Good to see your legs still work after all the cramped traveling.

Parker NSR

A good finishing stamp for good measure. After their morning session, these boys hit Pili’s for breakfast. I had trouble watching Carlos serve them the Pili’s Perfect Plate, Breakie Burrito, and the SLO breakie sammy (and a pina colada for good measure)… soooo tasty!

Parker NSR

I think those dudes hit the reef for the midday session. Not a bad call if you’re looking for long roping lines. But, the beach break is the pride and joy here.

Parker NSR

Ok I’m still thinking about Pili’s breakfast two photos later… Back in the water. Yeah.. the swell is fun! Good SW groundswell with plenty of keggers to race and corners to smash. The wind has been offshore all day today and the crowd has been light. What were we saying about those brutal Florida summers? Get down here ASAP!!

Parker NSR

To be honest, some of the waves weren’t perfect. But, lots of surfers were packing em and getting good shots! Hit me up at [email protected] to get your sequences.

Parker NSR

Ohhh buddy that is a racer… We’d need Kevin, Lesther, Carlos, or Kai to make it out of that one.

Parker NSR

Outside of the water, it was a picture perfect morning! Moose and Ziggy from the Kerson clan had their own fun enjoying the beach.

Parker NSR

Have y’all ever heard the expression “hang up and hang out?” Maybe somebody could share the wisdom with this muchacho. In his defense, I think (I hope) I saw him 20 minutes later with a board.

Parker NSR

With this direction (and being a biased regular footer), the rights are awesome! Don’t sleep on the left though- especially if Rick Briggs is in the spot with his water housing or GoPro.

Parker NSR

I saw this guy get a total of I think 3 lefts and a couple extra turns in there. Think against the (minimal) crowd and you’ll get your lion’s share.

Parker NSR

Here is one of my favorite shots today with one of my favorite residents. Johnny G pig doggy dogging this wave. Sorry John- I wish I had the focus set better! Still a sick “artistic” picture.

Parker NSR

I really like this picture: a gorgeous right hander, Rick snagging an equally gorgeous shot, and hopefully setting up for some frontside perfection.

Parker NSR

But, we are in Nicaragua where the lefts are seemingly endless so we share the love with the goofy footers. Coincidentally, all three of NSR’s owners are goofy footers (only one of them is goofy though). Do you see a correlation there?

Parker NSR

Adam I Forget Your Last Name is another great resident in Hacienda Iguana. He is an electrician from Maui who just built a house for him and his family. The cool thing is how much solar is used on the property!

Parker NSR

Another cool thing is how hard he rips. Beyond that, he’s a great guy I always look forward to sharing a line up with. Now Lila, his youngest, on the volleyball court is whole different animal.

Parker NSR

Alright guys and gals, I don’t know about you but I’ve surfed a ton this past week and we still have a few more fun days ahead of us so it’s time for us to get back out and on it! I’ll be back tomorrow with a new round of shots so y’all stay tuned. Gracias amigo!
