I thought about not saying anything more about this, but my good friend Jeff Davidson is coming down for this swell…I haven’t seen him in at least a decade! He was asking me what boards to bring and I told him I rarely use more than a 6’4″… but he might need a little bit more! I’m not sure if I should loan him my boards…maybe I’ll loan him Seans;-)
To see him off we took a trip down to GP and surfed our little secret spot. I got some fun video I’ll put together for you. We cooked up some mean New York steaks….we found a great source for good beef in Managua. We also did some drunken yoga and generally caused mayhem and destruction (all photos of that have been deleted). We’ll cherish the lingering hangover as Josh flys away into the sunset… Que Te Vaya Bien Amigo.
The offshore winds have returned this weekend with chest to head high plus sets, just 3 guys out this morning at Miramar point, plus another 2 at Pisangs getting some nice rights! There was even a family with their pet parrot on the beach today, I feel bad for pet birds but he seemed to be happy to be out!This little guy above fully shacked in a waist high wave!
Everybody deserves 15 minutes of fame, even Sean Kane. Here’s a minute and a half in hopes of adding to his. Featured surfers are all experts in the discipline only taught at Sean Kane’s School Of Surfing. You will see how his most talented disciples are advancing the sport. With a professor like Sean, how could they not be among the best at what they do.
While Nicaragua isn’t know for “huge” waves, we do get an occasional pulse that brings some more challenging size…and the beauty of it is that the waves out front at Punta Miramar are some of the best in Nicaragua and probably some of the best in all Central America. It’s not always an easy A like Desert Point, but it’s still pretty amazing.
Ahhh yes the gods are good to us. Even when the waves are small it’s possible to have an incredible session with lots of barrels. I hope this video helps you visualize as you sit dreaming away about your next surf trip. I know I owe you all video from the big swell a few weeks ago…it’s coming…I’ll get right on it…right after one more barrel…
