The river is still flowing which means that there is still a lot going on at the bottom of the ocean, sediment and sand still moving but, as everyone expected, the sand bars are bringing alive the REAL Santana.
Now there is a shore break that looks really good for skimboarding. Does anyone has one so we can try? I used to have one in San Juan del Sur for those flat days at the bay but who knows where it is now.
How about a new beginner’s wave… at Santana?? Yes, there is a little wave right were the beach used to be that looks amazing to give surf lessons. Santana has it all now! You need to come see it for yourself.
Let’s not forget that away from the beach there are still a lot of people that got it really bad with Tropical Storm Nate. These are donations delivered at El Remate community, an hour hike from the road where the river washed away houses, contaminated wells and left people without food, potable water, clothes and beds to sleep.
Spanish Book Drive still underway! One of the many losses for the local community was over 3,000 Spanish children's library books. This is a devastating loss for everyone, especially for the many kids who would frequent the library after school to check out books or get help with homework. If you would like to help, here is a link to the Amazon wish list that has been created to help refill the shelves or feel free to look for other Spanish books: https://www.amazon.com/…/2XPKWYRGI55…/ref=cm_sw_em_r_d_g__wB
Please email Heather at [email protected] for a US shipping address where Spanish book donations can be delivered.
