Nicaragua Surf Report for Wednesday, July 10, 2019

Parker NSR

Good afternoon everybody and welcome to the mid week report with Parker! I apologize about the late upload… we were too busy surfing fun waves all morning. We have some shots from our home base and another spot so enjoy!

Parker NSR

Yesterday was pumping!! I saw some great waves out front (some even great slams) yesterday. It's a good feeling when you know this entire Esmeralda Coast is firing!

Carl, Nigel, and I watched all of the incoming and I think this photo sums it up. Some sets showed (especially one perfect set!) but there was some waiting in between. It’s like this guy: checking into the tube but something wasn’t totally right and perfect.

Parker NSR

Ok out he goes to regain balance and set back up…

Parker NSR

Take two! It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish, right? Well, I think you'll like the back half of the report too…

Parker NSR

If that isn’t perfectly slowing down for the clean exit, I don’t know what is!!

Parker NSR

We didn’t see any gaping freight train right barrels for the time we were there. Bummer! But, seeing this muchacho stuff one under the lip and bash the wave apart wasn’t a horrible way to start the day. Preferable to have barrels but the fun factor is still at an all time!

Parker NSR

Next week should be a different story...

Gotta share the love for those backside turns too!

With this direction and a dropping swell, we love to see those rights steam through. But, the down days in Nicaragua still feature head high waves. Horseshoes and hand grenades or nah?

Parker NSR

Me: Sooo ummm Carl, I bet you really wanna surf, huh? Carl: yeah I could go for a fun boys session. Me: I have an idea and you have a car…

Hot Carl snagging one half way through the slabby shallow section. I bet he wasn’t even thinking of the home break at this point (pun intended).

Parker NSR

Carving up the face but leaving plenty of room for four more turns down the line. How long do y’all think this wave runs for? Maybe 150 yards in total? That equals how many more turns, carves, hacks, and floaters?

Parker NSR

Pancho, slightly celoso that Hot Carl got the first, showing off what tricks he has up his sleeve. Haha surfing with these guys is a blast! I can always rely on Carl for some tips and pointers while Pancho always holds you to the highest surfing standard. As I write this, that actually applies for these two hombres in and out of the water.

How’s the contest been today? You see, we have our own JBay here. There is a fun barrel section and plenty more of real estate to tear apart. However, the water is warm and you don’t have to worry about great whites. For the goofy footers, you will instantly fall in love with this spot as I'm sure any regular footer there.

Parker NSR

I crept up a little farther on the rocks to get another angle. Pancho following suit and snapping one under the lip.

Parker NSR

Pancho shared memories he had at this spot 15 years ago. Y’all might remember the names Roberto and Codo?!? Pancho remembered how those three drove up here, surfed all day, camped out over night (exactly where the beach club is now), and surfed all day the next day. In those early NSR days down south, Carl chimed in how “every day was a surf mission.”

Parker NSR

Pancho completing his mission and starting the dreaded shoulder burner paddle out. Come down and stay with us! We’ll put you on a surf mission to score the type of waves you want get and we’ll even help you out with an in-home massage to relax those exhausted shoulders.

Parker NSR

We surfed, and we surfed, and we surfed some more… What a fun a morning! A huge thank you to Hot Carl and Pancho for facilitating and making it happen- these are the days I will fondly look back on. Time for a cold frosty Victoria (sorry Tona!) to watch the rest of these low tide sets come through. Thank you everybody for checking out today’s shots and we hope you have a great rest of the week!
