"Shoulda Been Here Yesterday.." Highlights from the Nicaragua Swell You Wish You Hadn't Missed

10 days ago there were epic waves in front of La Barra Surf camp.  Truth be told, there are always epic waves (and all - day offshore wind) at our Nica digs, but these were of epic-er than normal proportions.

And odds are you missed it.

The sun went down on that swell, but there is more to come.  Do yourself a favor!  Keep track of forecasting for Miramar, keep updated with our newsletters and Swell Watch announcements, and catch the next one yourself.

    Our group was there the week before. Scored some fun waves and great times. Very memorable experience. AST and La Barra rocks! Great staff and facilities. Waves don’t need further mentioning- pics say it all. Thanks for an awesome trip!
