its getting so damn crowded all th popular breaks are holding 30+- surfers every single day. all gringos. if you aint a ripper willing to fight for your share in the line up then dont even bother. there are lot of mellower, mediocre breaks that are completely empty, but the good spots... damn!! its over....

i agree, i came to find relaxing mellow surf line ups, away from all tha california surfers and all i got was california and brazilian surfers,,, waves are good, but most all are short rides, nothing really stands out like pavones in costrica or the long waves of el salvador like punta mango.
If you do get lucky you might surf alone a day maybe....countries beautiful though.

you hit the nail on the head. look no further than the surf camps and tour operators who load the boats full and send them to the same 2 or three spots. not uncommon to see 5 or 6 boats anchored up on one break. why don't they find other spots? the guys at nsr.com didn't do us any favors either when early on they were naming all the spots. now every person on the web wants to surf "the best beach break in the country." trust me, its over. if you show up be prepared to be elbow to elbow with 40 or 50 of your fellow gringos.

Koolerthanu... more like kookerthanu...
"relax in my land in gigante"... you dont own land in nicaragua, they just pretend like you own it. how much you wanna bet in about five years you wont be going back down there? trust me i know what im talking about, especially in gigante village where ortega and his mafia have their eyes well set and a master plan to reconfiscate every piece of land next to the Pellas´s`project...

The government just blocked a project north of gigante, arenas tola,,, All the people who own land there are from the states, now they cant keep on bulding. then the exxon (esso) companies largest refinery was confiscated for not cooperating in receiving oil from venezuela. on a saturday they came in and at gun point took all the personal out, on sunday they were filling the tanks with venezuela oil...i know this is about surf, but this is just 7 months after they are in power...and beach property is as valuable as oil in this country now...
