Nicaragua Surf Report for Thursday, October 22, 2009

Hi folks, this is Miguel bringing you the Thursday surf report from one of our favorite spots down south.  Today we went to the beach with the incoming tide hoping to catch some waves but unfortunately the wind was onshore.  It was raining pretty good last nigh as well and we still had some during the day, we actually had to take photos inside the truck.  Check it out!!!


The waves were very mushy, running about chest to shoulder high on sets.  Here we have this unknown rider taking one of the better set waves of the day.

There were a few waves to ride out there but it was really hard to catch them.  This is Mitch from Fl trying to make it around this section to ride this one as long as he can.

A couple guys decided to stay out of the water and warm up with some run.  Salud amigos!!!

We had some chicks trying to learn how to surf in the inside.  This is Mariel from Canada riding a mushy one.

On the last action surf shot of the day we have Rick with a cool frontside snap on this nice looking right.  Nice move pal!!!

Today the Nicaraguan Surfing Team headed out to Salvador to participate in the 4th Central American Surf Contest where 5 different countries will to try to win this tournament.  This year the nica team is structured for the following surfers:
Junior Category: Pedro Florez, Joel Chavez and Rex Calderon defending his title from the last contest in Panama.

Best of luck for all these guys in the contest.  Here we have this shot from the last contest, after Rex won his last heat in the final round.

At the end of the day we had this beautiful rainbow. Hopefully the waves should be fun tomorrow so make sure to check back with us.
