Nicaragua Surf Report for Thursday, July 21, 2016

Parker NSR

Hey everybody and welcome back to the NSR surf report! This is Parker logging in to upload today's action. Check out the goodies!!

A new swell filled in with a new direction. The previous swell had a lot of west of in; however, today had a touch more south in it.

Parker NSR

Pancho Sanchez liked yesterday's barrel fest report so he wanted to get another piece of the action. Rinse and repeat, right?

Parker NSR

Yeah jefe!!! He was stoked to start the day off with a tube.

Parker NSR

This new swell has more juice to it. The waves today were consistently head high with sets a touch over.

Parker NSR

Say no more... Kai DeLorenzo was back on it. It's his last day so he's now three times as hungry!!

Parker NSR

Kai has two standout talents: sniffing out every makeable barrel and catching honeys.

Parker NSR

Kai, teach me something man... How do you squeeze into and make them?! He's a bigger guy but he'll do whatever it takes to make it.

Parker NSR

This is the take off section of the wave. Make sure you make the drop or you'll be dodging a guillotine and bouncing off a sharp reef.

Parker NSR

It isn't exactly softer down the line... but it's still perfect! The inbetweeners brought consistent nuggets.

Another Nicaraguan legend, Lincoln Gardner, was out this morning. Look at the slabby beast he's about to tame!

Parker NSR

My Dad always tells me that age is merely a number. Gray, I have big post retirement barrel riding expectations for you bro!!

Parker NSR

Nikita Panderosa joined us again. As usual, he was unleashing a furious rail game.

Parker NSR

Yeah hombre!! Great to meet you man and hopefully see you up north this winter!

Parker NSR

Nikita was shredding all morning until an unknown surfer showed up. After a quick effective chat, everybody was happy and sharing waves again. If you don't have a respectful mellow surf culture, leave it at home when you visit NICA.

Parker NSR

As the tide filled in, so did Pancho's tube count. Check it out.

Parker NSR

Bro!! Turn around and look the other way!!

Parker NSR

Lincoln validates that time in Nicaragua and barrel riding is a positively correlated relationship. Also, skipping lunch to take photos and surf doesn't hurt either.

Parker NSR

We met a new friend who is visiting from Portugal. On a later wave, he fell and unfortunately experienced the reef first hand (no pun intended).

Parker NSR

Pancho, thanks for taking us out today and stoking out the DeLorenzo family!!

Parker NSR

Alright chicos, it's time to sign off and go get some more surf!! Thank y'all for checking out the barrel fest reports and have a good weekend! Adios amigos!
