nicaragua early july

« on: June 24 2012 01:06:00 »

i plan to be in nicaragua to surf 8 days in the beginning of july and was looking at the south part. specifically popoyo. is it worth spending some time in the playa maderas area as well? or would the popoyo area be sufficient. i was thinking of just skipping it, since what ive read is that its crowded... i shortboard goofy and have been surfing for about 8 years. swell forecast looks pretty decent on surfline. advice would be appreciated. thanks !

I would recommend staying in the Popoyo area for all 8 days if you are just looking to score surf!  There are a lot of great spots in that 15 mile + stretch of coastline and it wouldn't be hard to spend a week there surfing all the spots.

I've been to Nica a few times. It's true, the south is way too popular now and getting expensive with boat charters and camps. The north is opening up and still real chilled. I stayed in this cool cabin. Pretty basic but so cheap and an unreal experience. I hung out with the kids next door (the family look after this property) and practised my Spanisha lot. Ate a heap of mangos and fruit. Surfed epic barels most days and went on some good fishing trips. This was a true adventure. I wouldn't recommend it to any pampered surfers who expect to be waited on. But for adventurous surfers, it's the real thing.
