I just returned from Nica on the 24th, and its true, there is usually a decent crowd. We stayed around Playa Madiera in San Juan, which was badass, but there were days of over 35 people in the water.  It's nothing worse than what you'll experience by any pier at any of your homebreaks, though.

Everyone just needs to pipe the phuk down. Everywhere is more crowded, so what, paddle out in heavier surf when less guys are out and that will solve most of the problem.  Paddle out at an easy break on an easy day, guess what, it's easy for everyone else too.  Every surfer thinks that they were there first, they're local, or because they paid a bunch of money, that they're entitled to waves.  Not the case!  No matter if you're at your home break, drove to the nearest popular point or reef, or travelling half way around the world...your surfing ability dictates how many waves you get, especially when it gets heavy.....period!!!  If you don't think so, go to Hawaii and see who gets all the waves...not the cool guy, or the arial master....it's the person taking off deeper and later all the time.

yeah, nica has gotten much more crowded. but there are lots of places to surf that are always empty, you just need a boat. i'm glad it's getting crowded, i can't wait to finally build on my land and make some money boating you folks out to the places i'm talking about. or maybe i should just talk about how crowded it is so you'll stay away! maybe that's what earlier posters were doing? anyways, compared to costa, the nica lineups are pretty sparse. if you don't want to see a crowd, explore, you're a damn fool if ou go to popoyo expecting to have a wave lke that to yourself, it's been in all kinds of articles etc., go explore! isn't that what you came for? and huge props to jj and dale, they are living the dream!

I' m sure you find many more people in Florida or California than in Nicaragua. The world is modern now : airplaines, many young locals, no chinese for chance.
Profit of the chance you have to visit a virgen country, meet locals people, taste all the class of food they have, watch the volcans, practise snokling. Now, if we can't be alone, we need to try to be happy.  A french guy.
Try the Guaro may be it's good for what you have.

@ nitas:

My last post here...reflects negativity? I stated a couple things that are happening nowadays pure and simple...right on. Note where I said the whining thing...THAT'S FINE...? Me personally no, I am not a "surf tour operator" down in Nicaragua. I am a designer in CA and frequent NI to help out my pops with NSI. And as far as I know already the tour operations have been going great. I'm sorry you believe I have a negative business attitude and what-not for my perceptions of things of this issue. Can't please everybody.

@ Mark:

CE would be Colin Eberly. I work in the design/pr department...not a johnny come lately tour operator. When I go to Nicaragua, I surf and help out my father, Tom Eberly, who's been down there for about 5 years or so. FYI so far, I've made $0.00 off "the industry" or NSI. Sorry I'm not the bloodsucker you wish I was. I think I said somewhere before about venturing farther North, which is something we are working on I believe. Sometimes it costs money to make things happen, so it may not be instantaneous...also pretty sure I never said "surfing all alone with offshore winds all day long" anywhere. The original quesion was about crowds...and compared to Costa Rica.

Nitas,i also agree, it's amazing how these folks try and market thier surf camp by telling you that they have found paradise and want to ' share ' it with others. B.S. they should say that they have no other viable means of support and are opening a surf camp in hopes of making a living
