Nicaragua Surf Report for Thursday, December 07, 2017

Kevin here with Thursday's report!  I've got an interesting report for you guys today.  NSR teamed up with surf guide Chris Connor from ADL (A Day in the Life), to take some of our guests on a day trip outside of Hacienda Iguana to escape the crowds.  Needless to say, we scored.  Scroll down for the trip notes.  Hope you guys enjoy the collab.  Hopefully more epic linkups to come

NSR x ADL   

Started out early this am. It's always tough to leave a good wave for hope of a better one, but the boys had already had two days of great conditions and the surf thirst had been placated enough to convince them to explore some of Nicaragua's other breaks.

The boys had considered a boat trip but decided on travel via land instead. Whatever method of transportation has its advantages and disadvantages, but each method is worth attempting at least once.

Chris has been surf guiding in this area for 13 years. He is the man to call if you want to explore and score.

Showing us how it's done.

Right as we paddled out, this wave came through the inside. As soon as it came through I knew it was gonna be a fun session

One of our guests, Robert, shapes his own boards. He was bummed since he elected to rent boards down here instead of bring his own.

Doesn't seem to be messing with him too bad. Such awesome style. The more I keep doing these reports the more I wish I had a longboard.... If any of you guys are thinking of coming down here and are unsure of whether you should bring one, the answer is YES

The sun was in the perfect position this morning. Here's a backlit little tube

Super glassy. The more I shoot the more I love this angle.

Alone and unridden. One of many

When the sets came, they were beautiful. Considering the swell was supposed to be dropping, it was surprisingly big.

Time had originally missed the first wave of the set, and he almost got caught inside for this next wave. He paddled his ass off though, and he made it to the outside with just enough time to whip it and go

Yeah. Need I say more?

The light at the end of the tunnel

Deep enough?

There were some tricky ones though!


This dude was a wave magnet. Catching everything

Another super stylish shot. I feel like I'm in the 70's or 80's right now

We ran into Billy Cruze, from Surfari.  Super stylish surfer.  The guys from Surfari always rip.   


That's it for today! The waves here at Hacienda Iguana are no doubt incredible, but there are also a lot of really good, beautiful waves in the surrounding area that are absolutely worth making a trip to visit. Whether it's by boat or by truck, the guys here at NSR and ADL can get you on some amazing waves if you give us a chance. And if you're gonna make the effort to make the expedition, why not hire a photographer! Hit us up at NSR and we'll get you dialed in!


As always, feel free to contact us at [email protected] if you're looking to see if we've got any photos of you. To the crew that we saw out in the lineup today, yes, I do have photos of you.


Thanks again!  See you guys next week!
