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;-)

…and so all good things come to an end. Our buddy and comrade in arms, Josh Orwig, has taken a position in Hawaii and is moving on to build his empire. You might know him from that other camp…Pisser it’s called. Of course we truly believe that after he gets a few slaps from some friendly locals, he might come running back. Hopefully he’s not working so much he doesn’t have time to enjoy the beauty of the islands. We wish him the best either way…but we secretly hope it sucks and he comes running back.

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!DSC_0588This little guy above fully shacked in a waist high wave!

We have fun every day regardless, but we have a quick break without guests, so we’re having fun without you! We got a little hiatus and we’re taking advantage in every way we can. In light of that…we’ve not really been shooting photos, but I found some good ones from the archives (I’m not sure why they didn’t make the original cut…the other photos must have been good!) and as well we got a new moped with knobby tires and a big motor for checking surf and getting stuff from the pulperia. I took it for a spin on the beach today…don’t tell my mom I wasn’t wearing a helmet!

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.

We’re just not getting rocked by those big southern hemi swells like we love, but we still are getting consistent surf. It’s like a really good winter around here. Offshore all day every day… smaller size waves…light crowds. I’m not sure if I have my calendar set right, is it August or November? We’re having a great time to say the least. Fun, rip able, low risk factor waves are letting us try new tricks and keep our shoulder muscles from exploding…all in all, these small waves aren’t exactly a bad trade off for the big swells… except on the forecast we see something coming;-)

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…

The winds were pretty strong for late afternoon and the tide was low at 4:30… in our infinite wisdom we figured the winds would be dying in the evening and with a slow tide change the current shouldn’t be too bad…so we called for the boat and headed out to Sandino at 3:15. The current was definitely running when we got there, but that didn’t diminish the quality of the waves…in fact it seemed to improve them. The hard part was getting into position in the current to catch the wave…it was like a treadmill! With burning shoulders we caught a bunch of good little drainers and we were really happy to have made the call to go out. The winds never died…they were still blowing strong at sunset when we had to come back. No complaints though…
