Nicaragua Surf Report for Wednesday, September 27, 2017

Parker NSR

Que tal amigos?! Welcome to the midweek surf report with Parker. The waves are pretty similar to yesterday: we have a few glassy bowls to show off plus some bonus shots. Check it out!!

So. The surf wasn’t ideal this morning. Remember, we are in the offseason months. As the pressure in the Atlantic changes and produces storms, we get affected. Bummer but we’ll make the best of September and October!

Parker NSR

And there’s still a fun wave to rip. I shot in the morning right after high tide. Forecasts predicted onshore winds by mid/late morning. That mean 2 hours of surf then an hour of photos and I’m off to breakfast happy.

Parker NSR

The tide was pretty high… But more peaks and waves than surfers in the water.

This guy is practicing his footwork before tomorrow night! Tomorrow night is dinner and salsa lessons at Casa Ananas. If you want to eat some tasty food and hop on the dance floor, check them out!

Parker NSR

As TR would say: schralllppppp fest!! There were some fun sections on the waves to smash.

Parker NSR

Rent one of the NSR surfboards. That will give you access to our entire quiver. A fast fish to cutback or long longboard would be fun to trickle down this right.

Parker NSR

I would have called the waves chest high but I think this surfer chick might have called them head high. In Nicaragua, we have incredibly consistent surf so there is always a spot working and it never truly goes flat (even if the weather isn’t great).

Parker NSR

I hope you muchachos and muchachas got some waves in before the wind switched! Keep scrolling down to see what we do when the winds switch…

Parker NSR

Thanks for asking! We play Hacienda Iguana’s 9 hole course.

Parker NSR

Alright, starting off on hole #4: Oldenberg’s folly. This is a tricky one so we asked Ben to get us started.

Parker NSR

Christian, AKA hand drag McGee, stuck a solid drive straight down the fairway. In today’s Scramble, it was Christian and me (the JV squad) versus Luke and Ben (the All-American D1 golfers). Let’s see how the day unfolds…

Parker NSR

Like I said, yes, we have a beautifully maintained 9 hole course. To play 18, play the same 9 over again (but from different tee boxes). You’ll find every type of pars, dog-leg rights/lefts, more sand traps than you’d appreciate, and a couple gorgeous views. Trust me (even though I only shoot in the mid 90’s), it’s a really fun course!

Parker NSR

Ok Papi, looks like we’re playing your drive. What are you using? A pitching wedge or probably a 9? Because you have to get us one hundo yards plus up the hill.

Parker NSR

Bro, that isn’t what I was talking about… but we’ll play it…

Parker NSR

My buddy Christian was more concerned about nailing the GQ shot than sticking this chip in for par. But, he nailed the shot so it’s ok.

Parker NSR

Luke got us out of the sand and into the hole! I was switching clubs and putting the camera down but Ole Reliable didn’t wait for us. He wanted to stick it and hit the next hole. Nice shot Luke!

Parker NSR

All business and all beard. Luke would like to acknowledge his sponsors: Taylor Made, Salty Crew, Flor de Cana (7 year only), JBL boombox speakers, and Black and Mild (wood tip only).

Parker NSR

Alright steezy, start us off on hole #5.

As a side note, these guys are down here working on an aquaponics system with Michael Lindsay at Waves of Love. The idea is to create a sustainable food system that consistently provides food and jobs. It’s an ingenious plan: the fish tank creates waste which fuels to produce and the clean water from the produce filters into the fish tank. Good work guys and we’re excited to see it come to fruition very soon!

Parker NSR

And they’re down here to hit the longest drive and enjoy 1 or 2 fine cigars. Yeah Luke!!

Parker NSR

Alright a 5 iron up the fairway and we are lying 2. Let’s get a nice chip onto the green and tap in for birdie…

Parker NSR

Ahhhh Christian!!! If you sunk this put, you would have been invited on the next trip. #sorrybro

Parker NSR

That goes for you too Luke… Despite all the serving, preparing, and helping, we’re going to invite Cheeks (God forbid we invite The Chad too) as your replacement (and bartender replacement too).

Parker NSR

There it is!!! Pastor man sinks the put for birdie!!!

Parker NSR

Ok guys and gals, a little bit of surf and a little bit of golf- not a horrible set up, huh? Thank you to Hacienda Iguana, the golf committee, Dan Springfield/Bill Chapman, and the grounds crew- we appreciate all of y’all’s hard work behind the scenes so we can enjoy the course! And thank you guys too for checking out today’s shots! We’ll see you guys tomorrow.
