      SURFING NICARAGUA WITH LA BARRA SURF CAMP

      Remote, uncrowded surf is what you will find when surfing in Central Nicaragua. This region of Nicaragua Surf is by far the most under-utilized and hard-to-reach surf in the country; boat access is necessary to get to the good stuff. Adventure Sports Tours offers two super Pangas at your disposal with the exception of day of arrival and departure. We do not charge for our boat trips, as it is part of your Surf Tour Package when traveling with AST in Central Nicaragua.

      We have several left point breaks, reef breaks and a beach break which are very similar to the southern end of the country without a soul in sight. Our surf guides know exactly what will be breaking, as this area is very tide driven. The reefs and beach breaks are good to epic on the higher tides with the points following at the lower tides.

      SURF SEASONS

      SURF SPOTS

      When is the best time to go surfing in Central Nicaragua:

      This region of Nicaragua enjoys 280 days a year of offshore winds providing perfectly groomed surf. In the rainy season the winds will turn onshore around 1:00 PM but normally glasses off in the evenings before your happy hour. You will want a boat during your stay to hit the remote uncrowded surf spots; this is a must in Nicaragua

      Our main attraction La Barra, otherwise known as Puerto Sandino is a 300 meter left, breaking on sand just outside a large estuary. This wave has several take off zones but you want to be at the main peak, as this wave will barrel without fail. La Barra is not for a beginner, you must be intermediate to advanced to surf this wave, don’t let anyone else tell you different.

      While you have several critical waves to choose from out front of La Barra Surf Camp, there are super fun waves that are accessible by 4×4 and boat. Beginners to intermediate surfers can enjoy beautiful beach breaks with long trips through the estuary onto a secluded beach with just a short walk through the jungle.

      Early Surf Season Central Nicaragua

      Beginner Surf Lesson Season

      January-February are the months of the year that surf becomes very inconsistent and the waves are small (2- 4 ft) however the climate is perfect with cool evenings and bright sunny days.

      TESTIMONIALS

      "Our trip with AST to Nicaragua was unreal! Perfect"

      "Wave rich set-ups of all variety were right out front of the house providing clean, offshore conditions all day… what more could a surfer ask for! From the moment we arrived until the end of our stay, the hospitality was top notch. The knowledgeable guides were able to bring us to the best waves utilizing AST’s ability to travel to secluded spots by car and by boat. With a perfect right and left just a short stroll down from the house, we had the freedom to surf anytime we wanted. AST in Nicaragua is truly something special. Anybody looking for a perfect surf retreat, look no further. All in all, great food, such wonderful people, and insane surf without any crowds. Thinking back on the trip, it was like a dream, all smiles."

      Professional Surfer Jesse Heilman, Holly Cobb, Nick Smith & The Alpinestars Team

      "The AST camp at Sandino was awesome. It was smooth sailing from the moment we got there"

      "Marcos was on it the whole time with anything that we needed. It seemed like we ate amazing food before and after every surf, which was crucial. The Toña was always cold, and if you’ve never had one, it’s worth the flight down just for an ice cold beer. We went surfing too… The waves were some of the best I have ever surfed. The river mouth at Sandino was all time. We must’ve been riding waves for a half mile. After long mornings out there, we would come back to camp, eat an amazing meal, then head out front to surf again. We were literally steps away from a few different peaks, so we had our choice depending on the tide. Staying at AST was an awesome experience, and I can’t wait to go back! Thanks so much to everyone at the camp, as well as Dave!"

      Dane Zaun

      "The rooms were amazing, the showers were great and the food was amazing every meal"

      "This was the first surf trip I went on paying out of my own pocket. They were very accommodating and helped me find the cheapest flights and travel. I got picked up from the airport in a van and felt very taken care of right off the plane. Once I got to the camp I saw that it was the best place to stay in the area, they had cold beers or soda or juice waiting for me to show they knew how to welcome you. The rooms were amazing, the showers were great and the food was amazing every meal. The surf guides were the best and had the best knowledge of the surf and where to go when. There were four waves within walking distance of the camp. They are all world class waves. I have never gotten so barreled in my life. Jumping off of a boat into clear warm water and paddling out with just me and 4 other people was the best thing in the world. They took care of us like family. If you are thinking of going to Nicaragua and don't consider staying here then you are not going to be doing Nicaragua right."
