Nicaragua Surf Report for Saturday, May 21, 2005

The Popoyo Surf Torneo is ON! And over 250 spectators are fighting through it despite the onshore, stormy conditions. The swell is pushing in solid overhead crumblers and many of the competitors, who are not used to imperfection, are having trouble.

Here is a surprise set wave.

Since the waves weren't much to write home about, we thought we'd run through some mugs of the Heat Winners who are going to advance to the semifinals tomorrow. First Heat Winner: Kike from Limon

Heat 2 Winner: Samir from Las Salinas

Heat #3 Winner: Erol de Limon

Heat 4 Winner: Gerardo, from San Juan Del Sur

Heat 5 Winner: Denis from Limon

Heat 6 Winner: Elvis from Popoyo

Heat 7 Winner: Oliver from San Juan Del Sur

Good luck to everyone in tomorrow's semifinals and finals. We're all hoping this storm blows through and gives us some good surf. We'll be there to see what happens. Check back tomorrow night for the results.
