Nicaragua Surf Report for Monday, October 13, 2008

Well, it seems the world is coming to an end back in the US.  We have an economy in turmoil, the country is dependent on foreign fuel, our budget deficit is the biggest it's ever been, banks are failing left and right, home prices are plunging, you can't get a loan and the government doesn't seem to have a clue about how to lead us out of this mess.  I can't even bear to watch the news anymore.

Has there ever been a better time to plan a surf trip to Nicaragua, spend some time in the warm water, catch some waves and clear your head?  Or better yet, jut close up shop and move yourself on down for good!  Either way, it's important to keep a positive attitude in times like these and there's nothing like a good dose of surf to keep you sane. 

After a seemingly endless run of bad news, it always helps to check out past surf photos like this one to remind myself of the "good days" that we've had in the not so distant past.  Here is one that Roberto just entered into the Surfline Photo Contest.  (click on the photo to view Roberto's other entries)

Hi everybody, thank you for joining us for the Monday surf report.  Unfortunately the wind turned ONSHORE today and we are expecting the same conditions for the next few days, the waves were running around waist to chest high on sets, and the water was murky.  Check it out.

Today hardly anyone paddled out, but our good friend Roberto “Lucha Libre” decided to practice his surfing skills.  We got this photo of him ripping it up.  He told us that he going to win the next national surf championship.

We wanted to give everyone a sneak peak of our new line of custom fit NSR team surf trunks. Our design crew is still working on some of the prints but we will let you know they become available to the public.

We also wanted to show you this seasons Tee shirt line, so if you are in Nicaragua and would like one for yourself or you would like to take some home for your family and friends as gifts, please be sure to get in touch with us and we will hook you up. 

Here is a shot of one our team riders showing off his entire trophy collection.  He is one of the most successful surfers in the country with nine National Tittles and two International Titles.  If you have ever been here to San Juan del Sur or checked out our site we are sure that you have seen him busting huge airs.  His name is Luis “La Baloy” Chamorro and we are proud to have him as a representative of NSR.

For the last shot of the day we wanted to share a shot from the archives of our founder “Pancho Sanchez” throwing everyone the “Shaka”.  We here at NSR have decided that for the remainder of this month we will start posting one shot a day from this seasons archive. These are shots that we have not posted before.  We want to remind everyone out there how good the waves can get here in Nicaragua.  We hope you enjoy what you see. Please check back with us tomorrow and we shall see what Mother Nature has in store for us.
