It could’ve been while witnessing our new friends, the unbelievably gracious locals, pulling in Mahi Mahi from the shores of one of the most breathtakingly beautiful beaches while using only a hand line. Or perhaps it was following a day of a seemingly endless session of 3-5 ft. surf aided by the undying offshore winds that this part of the country is blessed with (all the while being serenaded by the resident Howler Monkeys). In fact, in the short time that I have been here, there is an already limitless amount of moments that I could choose from to pinpoint the moment when Nicaragua officially opened up her arms and welcomed us.
For an indefinite period of time the 5ones Surf section will be produced from the vibrant city of San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua. Needless to say, the 5ones team couldn’t be more excited about this new venture. The city of San Juan Del Sur is truly the ultimate surfers melting pot. On any given day you will run into people from Brazil, Argentina, Hawaii, Italy, France, Peru, Australia and so many others….All who have come experience the perfect Nica surf, most of which is aided by the infinite offshores. Speaking with surfers from all over the world brings a truly unique perspective on not only the sport of surfing, but also the issues that matter most to the surfing community.
We will be taking the perspectives of all who speak the universal language of surf and combining them with the 5ones take in hopes of bringing an even more distinct and fresh look into what it is that makes a surfers world go round. As always we welcome feedback, commentary, shared knowledge, and for those who are willing and able, a visit to us here in Nicaragua to experience some of what she has to offer.
