surf in august

« on: June 26 2006 03:06:00 »

I'm interested in going to nicaragua in august, but don't know how big it usually is there then.  I realize each spots is different, but I can only bring one board and I don't want it to be a gun.  Is it shortboard weather or is it just too big for a shortboard in august?

I was going to Costa Rica on August, but me and my friends start looking for Nicaragua`s spots instead of C.R... I`m not sure about how big it can be... I have been once in Mexico and it can really get big.... Nicaragua is not far!!!! If I find out something I tell you... Good luck!!

Where are you from?

Take the magic length 7'6" (or the other magic length 6'10"). One can surf 2ft to 6ft.(hawaiian) or 3 to 15ft faces.  When you get down to it,  It doesn't matter which length you have unless the wave is really mushy.  Most travelers I know take two boards--not only to accommodate wave size, but to have a back up.

Hello Laura,
I plan on being there after the taking my 6'7" Senate swallowtail, & enough repair materials for a single break.

The same  storm systems that throw South swells to SoCAL send some gnarly big waves to Southern Mex & Central America. [The only drawback is the weather, as rainy season means a greater potential for muddied waters.]

I'm old, so I don't mind mud; but after double-overhead, I prefer to watch- so the 6'7" will work just fine in anything I'll paddle into.

Take care, Larry_A
