Where should newbies go in late Nov/early Dec?« on: October 26 2010 12:10:00 »
Where should 2 female newbies (we have both stayed up on a surfboard but that is about it - I can't even catch my own wave yet) go for:
- best beginner waves
- good 1 wk lessons
- safe, interesting location
- safe, cheap accommodation
Thanks for any recommendations!

Firstly I should say that Nicaragua is not the ideal place to learn to surf as gentle waves can be scarce and many are rocky. You need to find a surf guide you trust to keep you safe. San Juan del Sur offers many lesson packages but the sea is crowded. Our surfcamp is located further north where you do not have that worry. We take experienced surfers to other locations but have a nice gentle wave over sand outside the camp. We have a good relationship with the community so it is very safe here, we have had no problems at all as there is little tourism. Miramar is quite remote, but we have 4x4s to get around and collect you. We also have 20 percent off at the moment! www.surftoursnicaragua.com (don't be put off by the huge wave pics, we have mellower waves too!

Both Playa Maderas and Playa Remanso are good beaches for beginner/novice surfers. We do surf lessons, surf trips and have accomodations. Check us out at www.Ranchocecilianicaragua.com
