Discription of surf spot: Las Peñitas, Nicaragua

This spot receives good swell all year round, breaks with the occasional barrel, and has off-shore wind most of the time due to the Lago Nicaragua effect. Nice local crew, competitive but respectful and warm. Just treat them like you want to be treated, and everything will be fine. Dont get pulled into the Rocks by the current, which can be strong when its big.
