Popoyo Nicaragua Surf Report March 19

 

Popoyo Nicaragua Surf Report. My old friend Tony Silvagni is in Nicaragua and came up from San Juan on his first trip to Popoyo. I hadn’t seen Tony for a while; he’s been quite busy travelling the world, not to mention placing 9th in the world for the 2010 World Longboard Professional Tour. He’s also a ripping shortboarder. We paddled out shortly after the full moon low tide and caught some fun ones even though the tide was still too low. Some fun sets started pouring through as the tide started moving in.

Tony was getting hungry after snagging so many peaks. We went back to our restaurant and had a few NicaWaves burgers, fries, snickers and Cokes for him and his crew. They’d never been to the area, and I wanted to show him a nearby beachbreak. I really enjoyed seeing the look of stoke come over Tony’s face as we drove up the beach looking sideways into hollow barrels beginning to pour through the beachbreak with the incoming tide.
