These images are from the end of April….I posted a video of this swell which only claimed one of Sean Kane’s boards.  I don’t know that we ever put up the stills, but here’s a few that I found in the archives.  It was definitely one of the better swells of the year so far and we spent most of our time out front, at Punta Miramar.  While Puerto Sandino is a fine wave, no doubt, Punta Miramar, being a reef tends to be consistently hollow and handles larger waves better than Sandino.  Of course if we ever get some rain to bulk up the sandbar at Sandino, we might see the larger swells getting more hollow there.  You can see from the photos though, there was no shortage of hollow waves on this day…April 20, 2014.  More tube time than a tapeworm;-)

We can still use some love on trip advisor….take a moment when you can…I’ll buy you a Tona!

…and a little progress on getting photos posted with the new word press version.  I’m not exactly sure how I did it, but I’m going to try again and see if I can recreate the accident.

Our lovely Word Press blog hosting program was nice enough to release a new version!  Yayyyyyy…except the new version isn’t letting us upload photos?  So stand by while we get the glitch sorted and can get back to torturing you all with daily surf photos.  

Just so you know you’re not missing much this week.  The forecast is for small to nothing until Friday when we have a nice pulse showing up.  It’s a nice time for a break anyway, so we’re busting out some chores and getting the Managua runs done so we can get back here this weekend and get back to work…which is surfing, hammock consciousness, Tona downing, and sunset watching…

In the mean time if you haven’t seen our latest video, you can watch it on Youtube here:

We’re looking for some trip advisor reviews from our faithful blog followers.  Help us in our crusade to climb atop the competition and leave us a TripAdvisor.com review right now…wait, that sounds funny.  We don’t really want to climb ‘on top’ of our competition…we more want to ‘crush’ them and with your help we can do that.  

Anyway… if you follow the blog, love us (either in a creepy way or in a good way), log into TripAdvisor.com and say something (good) about us.  If you have nothing nice to say, then stop breathing now and take a long walk off a short bridge…or something like that.  The more the merrier…you know it takes two to make the cookie crumble.  Just spill the beans out of the cat’s bag… ok…enough…you get the idea….help!

So I’m sitting on the rancho this morning shooting photos of people surfing Punta Miramar and I see a huge splash to the north, between the house and pipes.  I thought it was a shark or something so I started shooting photos.  Later when I uploaded the shots I saw in one of the frames the distinct ‘rooster comb’ of a BIG rooster fish that was mauling some helpless baitfish.  That was the best I could do….a vague, fleeting photo, but there was just not enough time to get a fishing rod and run down the beach to try to catch it….it was gone.  Some of you may know my history with the elusive Rooster and how they’ve gotten away from me…all I know is that I’m closing in on them… stay tuned.

On the other hand the waves were pretty darn good today!  The swell is filling in nice, a little slower than we expected, but we still had multiple great sessions, some good barrels,  everybody is happy!

oh yeah…Nick Sucks!

Craig, Dan and Bill have been surfing for more than 30 years.  They travelled the world  during the 70′s and 80′s,with the aim of surfing the better spots alongside the 5 continents. They met beautiful women during their travels, I suppose…  After a while, they got married, then they carried on surfing and travelling,  this time under their wive’s supervisions… Dan and Craig met in Mundaka, Spain, in 1977. This is such a small world… I am from a town which is just 40 min driving from there, and they have been friends since then. They are staying with us, catching up  and having a good time together again by the sea.  We are so glad to have them here. Surf’s up boys!

Greg have  just confessed to me that he had his best  surf session ever today.  Below you have today’s  Greg surfing epiphany  explained with his own words, don’t miss it…

‘ Adan- he said- The longboard felt as an extension of my feet, it glided so amazingly well, it was like organic butter  melting on a hot pan.  I felt as if the ocean and me were merged together, as a  unity… I could feel the breeze blowing my face as I crossed feet… and, it looked as if time stopped …’

He came back from the surf and locked himself in the room, I could see some longboard surf porn  covers under his arm…

One California Day, Single Fin, September Sessions, Sprout and the Last Summer… to name just a few… Folk music was coming out of his room as I finished writing this post.

Ah! he is selling his shortboard quiver guys…

We are so spoiled because we are used to have good waves everyday and  now that we don’t have them we get a bit anxious…  With the time,  we  have learned to mitigate those disturbed feelings having a cold beer at sunset… and it works!
