Nicaragua Surf Report for Sunday, January 21, 2018

Hey guys!  Kevin here with the surf report today.  Not my normal day, but we out here getting some good karma so its all good!  In any case, today was a pretty strange day in terms of swell, but there were some windows for good surf.  Check it out!

So I checked the beach this morning, and it looked like the only place with swell was panga drops. I put the camera gear in the bag and took off on the moto

This is what it looked like early in the morning. The waves looked a bit soft, but there were some corners on the right waves

As you can see, when it hit a certain spot, the wave kind of stood up.

Just cause there's swell doesn't mean the wave is good. Case in point right here. You can tell the difference between this wave and the last picture right away

this wave looks good, but it closed out on the guy

it can be tough to read out there, especially when there is less swell. the pelicans are the true wave riders out there, riding the air currents that the waves generate as they break

The effects of the lower tide. Glassy sand

It's been a bit cloudy over the last few days.

Not that I'm complaining though. It seems like it's been getting hotter as the days go by. The clouds are a nice respite

Here's Kevin finding a corner

There was a guy out there riding some sort of fat twin fin plank. Seemed like a fun board given the conditions

Not enough hold with two fins? Put it on rail

Here's a good example of one of the better waves today. This wave came in at an angle and then wrapped around producing this right. Lately, these swingers have been the good ones

Tubes at Pangas?

If we don't see your fins when you turn you're not doing it properly

Even when there's no waves at Playa Colorado it's still somehow picture perfect ... 

So after that morning sesh, I went about my daily business, and as often happens in Nicaragua, found myself at the beach again near sunset

The waves looked a little better at this time of day

The corner was still working, but it was a little steeper now

The wave definitely had better shape this time of day

Plenty of unridden waves coming through

Good day for a paddleboard

Right or left?

Such nice colors this evening. Panga Drops has been this color the last few days

The water was so nice that even if you didn't surf it was a good day for a swim

Who says there's no swell in January? I'll take it!

That's it for today guys! Thanks again! Hope you all had a great weekend! If you guys are interested in photos, feel free to shoot us an email at [email protected] See you guys next time!
