Nicaragua Surf Report for Monday, August 11, 2008

First things first - we got so many good photos today and they are all available to view, purchase, print, etc. We were out all day taking both water and land shots. Maybe we got a killer shot of you. All you have to do is click on the image above and you'll be able to search today's and past galleries. Try it out!

Hi folks, we are Lucha Libre and Come Pan Panic bringing you the action of the Monday surf report from somewhere up north. Yeah friends, today we headed out to a couple of different spots around and scored some fun waves. It’s head high on sets with some occasional over head sets coming through, with offshore wind and warm water. Check it out.


Today Lucha Libre was booked for these two guys from Texas.  On the red shirt we have Austin Reinhart and Ty Brockhoeft with no shirt on.  These two guys were so excited about to have an NSR Photographer on the beach all day long to take some great pictures of them.

Here was caught Austin about to cut back on a sweet looking left on the big panga.  Actually this guy had many good shots that it was really hard for me to pick the best one for today’s surf report.

As I said before, Austin got many good shots.  So we want to share this one with all of you guys.  This is not an easy wave to do this kind of stuff.

Later on, we changed our spot for long boards and went around to test out the short boards.  Here is an unknown rider bottom turning a small but sweet wave.  He was catching plenty of good waves today.

Some other surfers were just trying to rip on this powerful wave.  Here is Mike with a cool slash from a nice perspective.

Other ones were just waiting and taking off on some of the bigger set waves of the day. Here comes John from Ecuador hand dragging on this nice right hander.

The last shot of the day goes to this little kid who was flying all over the place today.  The swell is supposed to drop a little bit tomorrow but it might be still pretty fun out there.

Later on in the afternoon, Jairo swam out with the water camera and got some killer shots.  This is Caleb "Kalib the surfboard kisser" Cooper making his first REAL appearance on NSR.    After this wave Caleb decided to stick the point of his surfboard through his lower lip and give himself 4 stitches.  Don't worry, it was nothing a couple of cold Tona's couldn't fix.

The facial expression on this guy was too good not to post this pic.  You can see how epic today was - crystal clear water, light winds and hollow waves.  This is paradise.  Yo homie, if you see this and you want to download or print this photo, all you have to do is click on it!

Jairo is getting really good at the water shots.  If you've never done it before, you can't truly appreciate how hard difficult it is to get yourself in this position - while not killing yourself or the surfer.  This is Hot Carl, on the foamball and looking for a way out.

This is our new friend Larry - Getting drained.

Here is another unknown Pale Rider getting shacked on a nice Right.  Jairo got so many killer shots at the beach today - click on the photo to see if he shot you!

Everybody who lives here was calling this one of the "Top 5 Sunsets" of all time.  I have to say I agree.  The rain pushed through without dropping any water, the clouds lit up like they were on fire and another beautiful day came to an end in Nicaragua.  Check back tomorrow! 

Happy 60th Dad!
