All quiet down in Hacienda Iguana/Playa Colorados - things have been intense up north. Other than shortages with gas - things are normal. A lot of people - tourist and ex-pats have bailed for the time being - so the lineups have been all-time empty for this time of year. Waves still pumping has been 8'-10' on the sets the last couple days - conditions absolutely epic.
On another note - the Barry Synder WPF - has been amazing! Reminds me of his twin keel - but with the pulled in rounded pin tail - easier on the backside and holds amazing. Had one late drop this morning - near vertical - well overhead - the board just so smooth. It does draw a different line - wants to carve - i've learned less is more and let it draw out the turns a little more than i usually do and it just flies.
Are your guests bailing at all? Or at least the ones in early August?? Website calendar says it's crowded.
Are you recommending against Chinandega zones at this time, or just keep a low profile around Managua?
Thanks and really appreciate the reports from down there, stay safe and pack as many of those empty kegs as you can!
