Nicaragua Surf Report | Photo from October 30, 2005 at 2:44 PM

I woke up this morning and caught the local news which said that Hurricane Beta has been upgraded to a Category 3 storm with 115mph winds AND that it turned around and is now heading SSW TOWARDS the atlantic coast of Nicaragua. The last and only time Nicaragua was actually hit by a hurricane was Joanna in 1988. So, today we still have decent weather, light onshores and head high sets. We went to Maderas to get what might be our last surf for a day or two if this thing hits us.
