Wave size continues to pick up as the tide drops with some bombs out the back. The offshore winds are gusty at moments. Waves are forecast to increase in size the next few days!

Good evening surfers, today we have a fresh swell filling in. We have been tracking this swell since about 10 days ago. It’s arriving right on time as forecasted. Offshore winds are super strong since last night and should remain healthy all weekend. Fortunately, the coastal hills of Popoyo do a great job of diminishing these winds at the peak when the direction is straight offshore. Check out today’s photos.

When I showed up, Wil was out ripping one wave after another. Here is Wil floating…

Often times the offshores in our zone will blow ENE with a heavy Easterly element. Even though the wind is extremely strong today, it was a more NE direction. The hills provide more shelter from this direction, and that wind direction blows slightly into the left. That wind direction along with the westerly angle of swell was creating a hollow section on a certain spot on the reef.

popoyo

Popoyo is a wave with many different faces. Here’s another example of that wind blowing into the SW swell creating a thick little bowl section.

The tide dropped quickly and the surf started to pulse. This surfer is checking his fins after coming  straight in rather than toward the channel.

There were some beautiful waves coming through as the tide continued to drop.

Good afternoon surfers, the waves continue to increase today with good conditions prevailing. There was a lot of action in the water today with all the regulars ripping the fun peaks.

Outer Reef had a couple sets almost working with this southerly angled swell. Four guys did paddle all the way out the back to have a look, but no waves were ridden on the peak.

Dayton was the standout surfer of the morning. He was catching everything and ripping with a smooth style.

Good afternoon surfers, Mike here with your Thursday Popoyo surf photos. Fresh swell building this morning on incoming tide. The nice southerly angle was providing plenty of waves at Lejana (inside corner of outer reef) and the main peak of Popoyo.

Beautiful offshore lefts were reeling down the point. Here’s Yan scrambling to get into position for this left.

Juan was out catching everything in site. Here he is coming around the corner on this beauty.

Juan said he was getting hot so he found some shade in the lineup.

Jamil popoyo surfer

Jamil always finds some of the best waves and smashes them. Did I get the tag right this time buddy?

… and boosting on the inside oncoming right section. Is he beginning to look like a ripping action figure?

Beautiful lefts coming through. As the offshores picked up, the coast hills of Popoyo continued protecting the surf, providing glassy conditions even through moderate to gusty offshores today.

There were plenty of nice rights coming through as well. Juan made sure to smash a few of those as well for good measure.

Luis was out and surfing really well today. Smashing rights and going vert on the lefts on his backhand.

Luis, you are out of control buddy, that is way past 12 o’clock. I think it’s time for you to go in and get lunch now  🙂

Gerald took a break from shooting to get his piece of the pie.

Some video footage from this morning. Contact us if you would like photo or video services of your surf sessions in our area.

Plenty of surf coming in toward mid-day and holding nice shape with the offshores. January is typically our smallest month for surf of the year, but it has been very fun. Check back soon. We will be seeing our largest surf of the year so far this weekend.

Good afternoon surfers, Mike here with your Monday surf photo report. We have fun glassy waist to chest, occasional shoulder high surf on this morning’s dropping tide. There were three distinct peaks working this morning. One guy out at Lejana, a half dozen at main peak, and one guy at the river-mouth. Check out the photos and read about a nice offseason-swell on it’s way!

A little birdy told us the waves are going to go off this week!

surfline nicaragua

Respectable storm system has passed by New Zealand this weekend and will be providing 2 to 3 foot overhead surf by late week. This is the strongest southern hemi swell maker we have seen since November. The smaller storm off Chile pictured here will provide a preceding fun-sized southerly pulse mid-week. Overall, this swell run is worthy of an off-season empty surf strike mission. The offshores are currently forecast to be light to moderate. Many of our area’s spots will be working with this swell. Contact us regarding discounts we are offering this week! 🌞🌊🌴🤙🏽

Popoyo had perfect conditions today with a new southerly overhead swell being groomed by light to moderate offshore winds. Peaks were cracking up and down the beach under sunny skies. Outer Reef was working during the morning’s high tide. Gerald and Mike were on hand to capture the action. Check it out.

Popoyo was graced by an nicely angled overhead south swell groomed by moderate offshore winds today. Outer Reef had a couple sets at the early morning high tide, but the largest sets were inconsistent and the offshores were gusting through Sardinas valley and tattering the peak. The peak at Popoyo was throwing the occasional barrel and rippable walls. The north end of the beach was throwing slabs as well. Overall a gorgeous day with an excellent variety of waves at Popoyo.

Popoyo surf photos of today’s overhead clean conditions.  Yesterday we saw a rapidly building swell and this morning had clean conditions a couple hours after low tide. Conditions were clean with offshore winds 10-15 miles per hour with sunny skies and intermittent clouds. The peak had hungry surfers jostling for position and the set waves cleaned up unlucky surfers every 15 minutes or so. Our guests John, Jay, and Jeff were up early  to enjoy a last session at Popoyo before flying home to Florida tomorrow. Gerald our surf guide was on the beach to shoot. Check out Gerald’s photos and let us know if you’d like to line up a photo shoot! The Nicaragua surf forecast is looking promising.
