Panga Drops, August 2014

Panga Drops: Shoulder High, CleanForecast not spectacular, but should hold head high tomorrow through middle of the month. 2010, 2011 and 2012 August had the biggest swells and most consistent overhead surf of the year; August 2013 was a failure. Will be interesting to see if August 2014 lives up to expectations.
Panga Drops: Head High, CleanConsistent head high & clean at Panga Drops today. Makeable barrels on the right and lips to smack.
Panga Drops: Head High, CleanDecent size & great form today at Panga Drops through the low tide. Best on the right with swell coming in from SW.
Panga Drops: Head High, CleanSwell angle tickling the Panga Drops horseshoe just the way it like it; great form (especially on the rights) and a good deal bigger than Colorados. Swell angle expected to maintain a lot of westerly which bodes well for the next few days.
Panga Drops: Head High, CleanGood size and form at Panga Drops this morning. Barreling on the rights. Head high plus.
Panga Drops: Shoulder High, CleanSize down from yesterday, but still some fun ones to be had... if you go the right way?!
Panga Drops: Shoulder High, CleanConsistent shoulder to head high. Fresh swell expected to start filling tomorrow, Thursday.
Panga Drops: Shoulder High, Clean3-4ft clean. Winds down and looking like we get some rain.
Panga Drops: Shoulder High, CleanPanga Drops more fun today on weak swell.
Panga Drops: Shoulder High, CleanConsistent shoulder to head high. Should pick up through the weekend.
Panga Drops: Head High, GlassyDecent size and form esecially through low tide. Clean with light offshore wind.

Playa Colorado, August 2014

Playa Colorado: Waist High, CleanGreat weather, small surf.
Playa Colorado: Head High, CleanHead high & glassy, 2mph offshores.
Playa Colorado: Head High, CleanShoulder to head high, working best on the right.
Playa Colorado: Overhead, CleanSolid overhead rights coming through all day today on 15 second south westerly. Nothing spectacular on the forecast, but shouldn't dip below head high the next few weeks.
Playa Colorado: Double Overhead, CleanColorados doing its thing. Lefts and rights cranking dawn to dusk, sunshine and light offshores.
Playa Colorado: Head High, CleanRun of not-so-big yet perfectly formed surf continues. Super fun on both he lefts an rights today, both side dolling out makeable barrels through all tides.
Playa Colorado: Head High, CleanWelcome to the weekend and the head high barrel fest continues. Appears it will roll on through the weekend & most of next week. The forecast has a strong (peaks out 20 seconds @ 4ft) due in Thursday 14th. August 14th produced the best surf of the year 2011 and 2012 so watch this space... Following this it will settle back to the head high background that bathes the south facing beaches this time of year.
Playa Colorado: Head High, CleanSmaller than Panga Drops, but punchy and perfectly groomed with light offshores. All the action on the right with plenty of west in the swell. Thursday's swell has been downgraded, now peaks out at 2.5ft 18 seconds. August usually hosts back to back stomping southerlies; seems there won't be any this year as the forecast is indicating 220+ through the end of the month. t
Playa Colorado: Shoulder High, CleanShoulder high, fun with light offshores. Thursday 14th should see the arrival of fresh swell. Unfaltering good weather expected through the end of the month.
Playa Colorado: Shoulder High, CleanConsistent shoulder to head high, light offshores. New swell expected tomorrow or Friday.
Playa Colorado: Shoulder High, CleanConsistent head high, light offshores and perfect sunshine. Should get bigger as swell fills in.
Playa Colorado: Shoulder High, CleanSolid shoulder to head high. Either the swell will fill in late or this is the best we're going to get. Looking good through the end of the month both on the swell & weather forecast.
Playa Colorado: Head High, CleanMostly closed out today with a few decent shoulders coming through on the right. The swell direction this August has been and is forecast to continue SW. Looks like we will round out the month without any significant southerlies. Finally getting some rain.
Playa Colorado: Head High, Clean3-4ft, glassy with light rain and zero wind conditions.
Playa Colorado: Shoulder High, CleanWaist to shoulder high surf. Nice and clean with light to zero wind.
Playa Colorado: Shoulder High, CleanSmall today. Looking small for the rest of the month.
Playa Colorado: Shoulder High, MessyMuch needed rain and light onshore winds this morning. Weather and surf cleaned up midday. Small.
Playa Colorado: Waist High, CleanSmall today.
Playa Colorado: Head High, GlassySize held through the weekend and looking promising tomorrow Sunday and through the early part of next week. Onshores threatening midweek and looks like we'll finally get some rain.
Playa Colorado: Head High, GlassyConsistent shoulder to head high, glassy. Overcast early cleared up mid morning after rain shower.
Playa Colorado: Head High, GlassyPerfect weather and form. Shoulder to head high, best on the mid tides.
Playa Colorado: Shoulder High, StormyWaist to shoulder high & messy with light onshore winds. Rain!
Playa Colorado: Head High, GlassyShoulder to head high perfection, clear skies & light offshore wind...
Playa Colorado: Shoulder High, GlassyShoulder to head high once again. Messy early, glassed off as the day progressed. Zero wind.
Playa Colorado: Shoulder High, GlassySwell strength up a click and perfect weather / wind conditions. August coming to a close and has been a disappointment with only one noteworthy patch of significant swell August 6th to 8th.
Playa Colorado: Shoulder High, CleanSmall surf to round out what has been another disappointing August.

Playa Santana, August 2014

Playa Santana: Shoulder High, CleanNot much going on over at Santana on continued weak swell.

Playa Colorado, August 2013

Playa Colorado: Head High, CleanInconsistent, but the odd head high set coming in every half hour or so. Overcast early, sun came out midday for a few hours and heavy rain later in the afternoon and into the evening. More of the same expected tomorrow, Friday. Saturday will see the arrival of a long period pulse that will deliver solid conditions thorough the weekend. An unseasonal, extended lull looming through the middle of the month.
Playa Colorado: Head High, CleanConsistent head high, mostly lefts.
Playa Colorado: Overhead, CleanSteady overhead and clean. Swell angle has veered more westerly opening up more rights today compared to Friday. Sunday should be OK and swell will fade Monday/ Tuesday. There's an unseasonal lull looming large and extending through into the long range.
Playa Colorado: Head High, CleanSize fading, generally 2ft. Occasional bit of juice coming in. Fun day for the smaller kids to paddle out! Wall to wall sunshine.
Playa Colorado: Head High, CleanFun to be had as tide pushed, including makeable micro-barrels on the right out front Altos. The rest of the week looking small but holding hope for head high surf Thurs, Fri and Sat. If the current forecast model is correct, next week will be a write off. Mid August 2011 & 2012 hosted the most powerful swells of the year; 2013 could see it do something equally unique: go flat...
Playa Colorado: Head High, CleanThe canicula is happening: rains have ceased; offshore wind every day; clear skies... conditions would be perfect, oh SO perfect... if only there were waves?!?!
Playa Colorado: Shoulder High, CleanOnce again small waves and set to get smaller: shoulder high surf should linger through the weekend. Next week looks nothing short of dismal. I never would have believed an August lull of this magnitude was even possible... Until now.
Playa Colorado: Shoulder High, CleanThe August lull...
Playa Colorado: Shoulder High, CleanAugust lull.
Playa Colorado: Shoulder High, CleanSome pop to it today, but basically small. The rest of this week looks dire; its threatening to go completely flat. Decent waves should be with us once again Tuesday, August 20th with an 18 second swell expected to give two or three days of solid surf. The weather has been good and winds are forecast to hold offshore through the end of the month at least.
Playa Colorado: Shoulder High, CleanShoulder high, wind light onshore. Went to have a look at the animal park in front of Rancho Santana. Not sure whats going on there exactly... if the animals are destined for the restaurant? Or if RS are moving into the Zoo/ amusement park sector?
Playa Colorado: Head High, CleanNot great... but a LOT better than flat, as forecast. Steady shoulder high, occasionally head high nugget.
Playa Colorado: Shoulder High, CleanA welcome respite from the ongoing saga of the August lull. Good swell direction and the sand banks are all where they need to be - meaning lots of makeable barrels in both directions. A long period blip holds promise for the middle part of next week as the first, last and ONLY longer period swell of the fortnight is forecast to arrive Tuesday.
Playa Colorado: Head High, CleanOnce again decent size; in the shoulder to head high range. Heavy rain and light onshores cleared through the morning to make way for a fun, uncrowded afternoon session.
Playa Colorado: Shoulder High, CleanAugust lull back in effect with the biggest sets coming in shoulder high. Beautiful, perfect weather and light offshores all day.
Playa Colorado: Shoulder High, CleanHeavy downpour and storm front winds messed up the already small waves. Conditions became almost decent late afternoon as weather cleared and the tide dropped off high. The one and only longer period pulse of the second half of August was expected to arrive today - but didn't. Maybe tomorrow...
Playa Colorado: Shoulder High, CleanSwell filled in through the night and delivered mid-size and great form all day. Wind veered east (side shore) messing things up late afternoon as a storm front approached and heavy rain early evening.
Playa Colorado: Overhead, CleanGlassy start to the day with 1mph offshore breeze. Size down from yesterday, but still some head high to overhead sets coming in. Clear skies and perfect sunshine through most of the day; convective clouds bubbled up late afternoon and early evening thunderstorms.
Playa Colorado: Head High, CleanOvercast and winds variable (offshore/ side-offshore) with multiple storms passing by. Pro surfer Timmy Reyes in the line-up today managing to get his fix. Nothing exciting on forecast through end of August. Long range prognosis not so good with MSW calling for the winds to come onshore Friday, September 6th.
Playa Colorado: Shoulder High, Clean1pm, Saturday: While Miguel was in the office doing the FB update I dropped by The Wave Garden to welcome a group of guests. On the short drive down I was trying to formulate some positive news for the week ahead, but without lying. There's NOTHING on the forecast!!! When I got the the house the surf out front at Colorados was FIRING?!?! No idea how. Unsurprisingly, the guys (who were fully expecting to get skunked) were totally STOKED!
Playa Colorado: Overhead, CleanThanks to the forecast we had a load of cancellations... NO complaints!!! Empty line up! Moral of the story, if you're going to surf... SURF. Don't go trawling the web tying to predict the future!
Playa Colorado: Overhead, CleanOnce again good size today in spite of the pathetic forecast. 4-5ft, clean as a whistle and all in all a Happy day here at Colorados. The rest of the week looking, err... weak. But then anything could happen as the forecast has been undercalling it lately.
Playa Colorado: Head High, CleanOnce again, actual conditions outperformed the 'flat' forecast and plenty of fun to be had. Steady shoulder high, occasionally head high on sets.
Playa Colorado: Head High, CleanMystery swell has run its course with surf running waist to chest high at best. Beautiful day, so took a ride round to Agua to snap some photos. Amazing views from up there.
Playa Colorado: Head High, CleanSunshine and showers, typical for late August. Small waves, not to typical.
Playa Colorado: Head High, CleanLast day of the month, adios August 2013. The smallest August on record. Outlook unsettled as we move into September.

Playa Santana, August 2013

Playa Santana: Head High, CleanMystery swell had Colorados firing. Not so good round at Santana, where Miguel was taking photos today. Monday/ Tuesday next week should see a brief respite from pitifully small waves and another bump due in at the weekend. Looking small next week and into early September.
Playa Santana: Head High, CleanSunshine and showers order of the day as we close up the most disappointing August on record. Who would have guessed it were possible for the mid winter South Pacific to be so calm for such an extended period of time? August has seen ZERO significant swells. Typically, August is constant barrage of 16 - 18 second energy. This year August maybe had a day or two where the swell was tickling at the 16 second range.

Playa Colorado, August 2012

Playa Colorado: Small But Surfable, CleanNothing beats a beach clean-up to start the month. Its everyone's responsibility to keep the beach clean and THANK YOU to Hacienda Iguana for helping out this afternoon. Small waves again today; 2-3ft, sideshore wind. Got a little better in the afternoon as the wind reduced and the swell picked up half a notch. MACCA SWELL still not here... maybe tomorrow...
Playa Colorado: Overhead, CleanThe swell is here BUT its kinda junky; super stirred up, rippy and sideshore wind not helping. Should get stronger & more organized tomorrow, Friday.
Playa Colorado: Overhead, CleanAlready MACKING southerly cranks up a notch. THUMPING 20 seconds @5.5ft now showing on the long range. Wind due to shift onshore for the next few days.
Playa Colorado: Head High, Slightly ChoppyI guess it couldn't last forever; the offshore wind which has been blowing EVERYDAY since June 28th finally gave up. 5-10mph ONSHORE today. The forecast shows the offshores REESTABLISHING Sunday and due to hold for the midweek MEGA-SWELL (5.5ft @ 20 seconds)
Playa Colorado: Head High, Slightly ChoppyBlat of tiny waves and onshore wind coming to an end, hopefully. Although it was still onshore yesterday, it was light and there was some chunkiness to the waves. Got fun late afternoon as the wind calmed. Looking MONSTROUS for the week ahead....
Playa Colorado: Head High, GlassySwell filled in a little through the night and sets were running head high from first light. Although forecast to come onshore, the wind managed to stay OFFSHORE all day... and the offshores look set to hold for the next two weeks at least.
Playa Colorado: Head High, Glass PerfectionClean, juicy and fun on the right today. Swell angle will be backing through the 200 mark tomorrow/ Wednesday as Chilean monster swell fills in. The sparking up of the left will mark the arrival of the new swell, probably Weds afternoon/ Thurs morning.
Playa Colorado: Head High, CleanPlentiful supply of makeable micro-tubes on the right today. Will be going XXXL soon, maybe tomorrow. Winds & weather forecast to cooperate.
Playa Colorado: Overhead, GlassyFirst pulses of fresh southerly tickling in. With period maxing out at 22 seconds, this swell will test the limits of what Colorados can handle.
Playa Colorado: Double Overhead Plus, CleanFunky weather through the morning with the wind drifting onshore a couple times with passing storms. Late afternoon the swell cleaned up, the wind direction stabilized and the first much anticipated XXL lefts of this swell came in.
Playa Colorado: Head High, CleanChunky but nothing spectacular. The peak of the swell slipped us by thorough the night. Forecast for next 10 days looking fun. Offshore everyday, moderate swell; probably shoulder to a foot or two overhead.
Playa Colorado: Overhead, GlassyLooks like the canicula is over. Storms through the night cleared up for a fun mid morning session on the low tide. Got messy in the afternoon with sideshore wind. Thunderstorms and rain at sunset.
Playa Colorado: Chest High, GlassyPERFECT weather, but tiny waves. Should be a new swell coming in anytime now.
Playa Colorado: Overhead, GlassySome juiciness today. Mother-of-all-storms through the night, but PERFECT weather once day broke. Light offshore and sunshine all day.
Playa Colorado: Overhead, GlassyJuicy again today and good weather. Swell coming in at 210 degrees has several peaks working good.
Playa Colorado: Chest High, CleanSmall today and not feeling overly optimistic about the forecast for the next few days. Things looking up for the end of the month thru first part of September...
Playa Colorado: Chest High, GlassyTiny today but sunny weather and light offshore wind made it bearable. Wind due to switch ONSHORE for the weekend. Powerful southwesterly showing on the forecast Thurs/ Fri next week by which time the wind will be back OFFSHORE.
Playa Colorado: Chest High, GlassySmall again but, as always, some fun ones to be had. Wind was light all day and generally ONSHORE, though it did swing offshore a few hours at low tide (midday). Sunny day :)
Playa Colorado: Overhead, GlassyHeavy rain through the night and early part of the morning gave way to a bonus glassy session between 9am and midday. Messy through the afternoon with light onshore wind.
Playa Colorado: Head High, CleanComo se dice 'OFFSHORE' en español??? 'Viento hacia el mar'... muy largo... No hay una sola palabra? Otra pregunta mientras que estoy tocando el tema... como se dice 'ONSHORE'?? Pues, sea lo que sea el viento hoy fue 'OFFSHORE' TODO EL DIA y las olas aunque no tan grandes eran buenas :))
Playa Colorado: Head High, CleanBeen a good few days on a southerly that delivered more than expected. Hopes are high for a THUMPING southwesterly due to be coming in on its tail today. Weather forecast looking good with the offshores (which can start getting fickle this time of the year) expected to hold.
Playa Colorado: Chest High, CleanSwell supposed to be coming in today, but as of 3pm no sign of it.... Maybe tomorrow.

Playa Maderas, August 2012

Playa Maderas: Head High, CleanA BIG THANK-YOU to Christian Surfers SJDS for organizing yesterday's 'RIDE NATURE' event. And a massive 'FELICIDADES' to Tola boys Oscar and Jackson for bringing back the trophies!! Buenas olas y buenas amistades; un dia muy tranquilo :)
Playa Maderas: Overhead, CleanUn dia bonito y amanecemos con ganas de ir a San Juan del Sur. Hayamos unos picos SALVAJES y casi nadie surfeando...

Lance's Left: Overhead, CleanFun morning session at Lance's before the wind started HOLWING.

Popoyo Outer Reef, August 2012

Popoyo Outer Reef: Double Overhead Plus, CleanPopoyo Outer Reef showing signs of life on moderate SSW swell. Strong side offshore not helping, but some gems coming through nonetheless.

Gigante, August 2012

Gigante: Chest High, CleanOver at Playa Amarillo was the NicaTime hosted Encinitas Groms V's Locals. Southwesterly swell and rights will give way to a more southerly swell and the LEFTS will be cranking from midweek when the swell about to light up the PICO ALTO BIG WAVE EVENT in chile arrives in Nicaragua...

Playa Colorado, August 2011

Playa Colorado: Chest High, CleanWas best at dawn on the falling tide. After low tide the wind shifted round and was blowing side-shore by mid morning. Occasional decent sized waves popping up.
Playa Colorado: Chest High, CleanSunny day with light offshore breeze. Chest to head high waves.
Playa Colorado: Overhead, GlassySunny day, light offshore breezy, fun waves on tail end of strong southerly swell.
Playa Colorado: Head High, CleanYet again another sunny day with great waves and light offshore breeze. Strong swell due to hit Friday, currently stirring up the waters of the Galapagos Islands.
Playa Colorado: Overhead, GlassyFirst signs of a strong new southerly pulse lighting up the left a treat. Slightly overcast, light offshore breeze.
Playa Colorado: Overhead, Glass PerfectionLong period southerly swell holding up nicely through the afternoon, always on the left. 18 seconds at 3ft. Light offshore wind.
Playa Colorado: Double Overhead Plus, Glassy4 foot, 18 seconds swell generated in the icy waters beyond Chile meets shallow sand bar in sunny Nicaragua.
Playa Colorado: Chest High, Slightly ChoppyThe weather & waves have been awful the last four days - rain, onshore wind, not much swell - and the forecast for the rest of the week isn't good. However, the wind swung round to the west (cross shore)and blew very gently though the night. Though not great, there was at least a reason to get wet for the morning session...
Playa Colorado: Overhead, CleanFirst signs of Tahiti monster swell rolling in. Forecast indicating 22 seconds at 4ft making this the strongest swell of the season - if it lives up to expectations.

Playa Colorado, August 2010

Playa Colorado: Overhead, GlassyPlenty of overhead sets this morning. Blue skies, gentle offshore breeze. Not many people about this week.
Playa Colorado: Small But Surfable, Glass PerfectionWhen the waves get this bad, people sometimes forget etiquette in a desperate bid to catch a ride... Looks like we've got a spell of onshore round the corner too.
Playa Colorado: Double Overhead Plus, GlassyGood at dawn, but as the tide dropped the swell strengthened and the wave started to close out. Big, hollow, heavy.
Playa Colorado: Head High, GlassyGood this morning. No wind at all at dawn and a gentle offshore breeze throughout the morning. Everyone seems to have given up waiting for the onshore to break, so hardly anyone about.
