The fellas over at Nicaragua Surf Report recently posted a few shots that illustrate the benefits of surfing in under-developed countries. They call it the rainy season right now, and they’re not playing around. It rains…and rains….and rains…but even then, the waves keep coming. When the un-godly amount of water coming down is combined with roads barely suitable for donkeys and cattle, the result is this slice of perfection captured by N.S.R. A wave that at times in the dry season is filled to it’s capacity and then some…now completely empty. All you gotta do is find a way to make it there, which, if you scroll through any of the shots taken by N.S. R. in recent weeks, is much easier said than done.
Nicaragua Surf Report has been at it since 2004. Since then, they have been capturing at the very least a taste of the magic Nicaragua holds on a daily basis. Based out of San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua, N.S. R. started with the simple concept of taking a few shots with a basic digital camera and posting them online. It has since become a blossoming business that has been huge in propelling the local economy. What has struck me about N.S.R., more than anything, is their rapidly growing grassroots following of those who have experienced Nicaragua for themselves. If you have yet to see for yourself just what the Nica-hype is all about, take a few minutes and scroll through past N.S.R. reports. Nicaragua is really that good…
