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.

Popoyo Nicaragua showed a building overhead swell today during the morning high tide. Conditions improved later as the tide got lower – beautiful and sunny with light offshores. We had our guests Dan, Morgan, Nick, and Jimmy out getting one last session before heading to the airport. Also an inspiration to see JJ out surfing Popoyo on his birthday today, killing it. He has a unique style – aggression and flair that has always reminded me of a mix of Andy Irons and Cory Lopez.

Our surf guide Gerald was on the beach to capture the action. Check it out!
