Discovering the Beauty and Spirit of Surfing in Nicaragua


When my family and I moved to Nicaragua, it was for the promise of adventure, the allure of a new life, and the dream of rolling waves and endless summer sunsets. As someone who had spent years snowboarding, I assumed I would take to surfing effortlessly. I quickly discovered that the ocean had other plans for me, and my journey into surfing in Nicaragua became a beautiful dance of resilience, spirituality, and connection with nature.





The Spiritual Side of Surfing

Snowboarding had always been my go-to for that adrenaline rush, so I was confident that surfing would come naturally to me. But each attempt to ride the waves felt like a humbling lesson from the ocean itself. The sea has a way of thrashing you around, making you question your strength and resolve. But there's something incredibly spiritual about this process. It's a dance with nature, a lesson in persistence and humility.

Despite the countless wipeouts, there's a serene beauty in feeling the power of the waves, learning their rhythm, and finding moments of stillness amidst the chaos. Surfing in Nicaragua isn't just about mastering the sport; it's about connecting with the ocean's energy, understanding its moods, and embracing the journey, no matter how challenging it may be.


A New Home and Endless Discoveries

Our move to Nicaragua opened up a world of beauty and opportunities. Every day, as the sun dips below the horizon, it feels like the first time. The sunsets here are simply unbelievable, painting the sky with hues of orange, pink, and purple that take your breath away. Each evening, as I stand on the beach, watching the sun disappear into the ocean, I'm reminded of why we chose this place. It's a constant reminder of the beauty and magic that surrounds us.


Roller Skating Retreats in Paradise

While surfing became a spiritual journey, roller skating remained my passion. Here in Nicaragua, I've been able to combine my love for skating with the stunning natural backdrop of this incredible country.
