Even though we’re only about 48 hours shy of kicking it into full gear for September (which happens to be one of our most joyous months of the year for surf) I’m happy to let you know that the waves were firing in the 3-5 foot range all day today.
I don’t think I saw Ryan at the recent “White Party” at Malibu Popoyo, which hosted some of the best music I’ve heard in Nicaragua for a while; but I can tell you one thing….. he’s gotta have some pretty sick dance moves!
On a serious note though, he loves this wave as it’s been his home for a few years now. You might have even enjoyed some of his delicious Mexican cuisine as he was the mastermind behind Vana Tacos and he dabbled a bit in the shaping and ding repair world as well and has fixed many a broken tablas for many people here. If this is indeed your last year here, I solute you hermano! But I know you’ll be coming back.
If you have a drone, or are planning on bringing (smuggling one in) you might be pretty bummed to know that now you cannot fly it here at all thanks to the new GPS firmware from DJI and the new “red zone” that won’t even allow your drone to operate being that we’re in the path of a real working airport that bring live human beings here safely. I’m not a fan of restrictions, however, you know there’s aways that “ONE” person who will mess things up. So until then we’ll keep the flying low and under the radar like Oscar’s doing here. (**this has been your friendly drone update from yours’ truly!) :)
