just out of Curriousity: surfing in nicaragua

« on: March 07 2007 16:03:00 »

are you for or against ex pats owning and promoting surf camps that make money selling the nicaraguan waves/land?

Is this an insult to local surfers? Does it disrespect their right as surfers when a camp brings in five or more surfers into the line up where there may be only one local?

Should ex pats ever be considered locals? Isnt this defined by how much money you have? If i can buy the land and build my business what does this mean? Should the locals thank me?
What about promoting and visiting local establishments? they are way cheaper... and that could really be considered helping.

do you realize how cheap and easy it has been to create surf camps here in nicaragua. and the country has been cursed with only a small amount of local for crowd control. this has left it open for foreigner to claim regions as theirs: to name the spots, claim the spots, sell the waves... etc. buy the land sell the land etc etc...
i used to surf popoyo when it was empty, now i havent gone in more then a year, its frustrating the crowd growth. i have now moved to new and better spots but they too are being spoiled.

is this good? its really confusing. i dont know whether to embrace it or fight it...

It's a free world. Don't forget Nica's are also enjoying the US via Fla. Cali, etc. Them getting mad at an American is the same as an American getting mad at a Mexican  for cming over and "taking their job".
