Nicaragua Surf Report for Friday, March 13, 2009

Hi there, this is Roberto “Lucha Libre” Garcia and Jairo “Come Pan” Ramos bringing you all the action for the Friday surf report.  Today we decided to drive up north to catch some sick waves with the new swell.  It was a couple feet over head on sets, the wind was a little bit lighter than yesterday and the water is still a little chilly.  Check out the lineup.

We had a solid swell out there in the water today and mostly all the beach breaks around were closing out but there were still some really good waves to be had in between.  Here we have a shot of this unknown rider bottom turning a nice sizeable left.

The lineup was not very busy at this spot, so everybody was taking plenty of fun waves.  Check out this guy cutting this wave all the way in to the beach.  This is a nice looking shot from one of the most popular surf spot up north.

Later on, we checked out another beach break but the tide was already too high for this spot when we got there.  There were still a couple of nice ones rolling through with no takers because nobody was out.  Just think about this place with the right tide with this kind of swell.  Smokinnnnnng!!!

We moved around a little bit to see what was going on at a few other places.  At this spot the bigger set waves were closing out but there were a few sick waves coming through.  Check out this killer left with nobody on, what a shame!!!

Armando “El Codo” Lopez made the trip with us and he was charging on the bigger set waves of the day.  Here he is with a late take of on this right.  He’s practicing a lot the late take off because he wants to get ready to charge outer reef when it gets big.

There were a few guys from Boston having a good time out there.  This is Shame working on his backside style.  He comes down every year to score some good waves, and today he already scored a few.

We don’t know who this guy is, but he was trying to get barrel on every single wave he took.  Here he is looking good and trying to get some speed to make it through this section.

We also had some Floridian surfers out doing the best to make it on NSR.  This is Troy looking down the line on this left at the wedge.  He used to live in Hawaii and now he is charging on some mini bumps down here in Nicaragua.

Did we say mini bumps?  Check out this guy about to kill himself on one of the bigger set waves of the day.  Ay, ay, ayyyy - Toilet paper?

Norwin “El Chulin” Estrella was definitely going big today.  He paddled out through big waves and huge currents.  We have to give him a special shout out for been out there taking the risk.  Here he is with a sweet bottom turn on this killer left.  That wave looks like double over head for him.

There are always some amazing wipe outs when we have solid swell in the water.  “El Codo” Lopez didn’t make this one and went straight down to the bottom.  Actually he ate a little bit of sand and almost lost his fake tooth again.

Alright folks, that’s all for today.  The swell is supposed to be running about the same size than today but hopefully the wind is going to be lighter so maybe the surf can gets even better tomorrow.

Lucha and Come out!!!
