    Playa Maderas, Nicaragua

    February 20, 2015 in Nicaragua ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Van de stad gaan we naar een vissersdorpje ( inmiddels een toeristen party dorpje ) San Juan del Sur. Omdat we niet in de party modus waren zijn we naar een klein strandje verder op gegaan. Playa Maderas. Hier was helemaal niks anders te doen dan eten, zwemmen (jaaaa... we hebben onzelf getrakteerd op een hotel met een zwembad, wat een luxe ) en surfen. Naja surfen... we kunnen op het surfboard staan zeg maar terwijl het surfboard mee gaat met de golf. ( voor de goede orde.. we staan dus niet op het droge.. maar echt in de zee ;-).Read more

    Cerro Negro - Volcano Boarding!

    June 2, 2015 in Nicaragua ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C

    Amazing breakfast this morning for only $3! Lindsay is running late - she is locked in her hostel and the night guard had to remove the glass louvres so she could crawl out the window hahahaha

    Its already stinking hot and humid as we set off in the tour guides cruiser to Cerro Negro. The drive is rather scenic as we head through the villages passing numerous horses and bulls carrying wagons of timber and other misc goods.

    We arrive at the black mountain which stands in contrast to its scenic surroundings. Our cool guide 'Chris' hands us our boards and bags with overalls, goggles and gloves and we start the descent.

    Its a rather steep ascent with numerous stops to rehydrate. Half way up were met with a beautiful panaramic view of the surroundings of the adjacent mountains.

    At the top its time to get down to business. We don on our full length demin overalls, cotton gloves and clear (but badly scratched) goggles and pose for numerous gangster style photos. We peer over the crest and cant even see the bottom due to the increase in slope. Its taken 60 minutes to get up and now 90 seconds to reach the bottom.

    The adrealine rush is insane! Its difficult to stay in a straight line as you put your feet out to balance. The slope of the volcano steepens and the speed of descent is thrilling. Rocks are smashing into your body and face from all directions. As you approach the bottom we lose balance and crash the board and roll sideways until the momentum stops. It takes a few moments to conprehend what has just happened.

    What an epic experience! Easy to see why its rated no. 2 in CNN's thrill seekers bucket list!

    Playa Maderas

    September 10, 2016 in Nicaragua ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    Der Strand Maderas ist sozusagen einer der Surfspots hier in Nicaragua. Die Surfer hier darf man sich natürlich nicht entgehen lassen. Pascal hat sich dann gleich ein Board ausgeliehen und seine ersten Versuche auf dem Brett gestartet (gar nicht mal so übel^^), ich bin lieber am Strand geblieben und hab in den Wellen geplantscht :D zu viel Respekt vor den Wassermassen..Read more

    Playa Maderas

    March 9, 2018 in Nicaragua ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    Ein kleiner Ort mit wenig Infrastruktur aber wunderschönem Strand und großen Wellen. Hier war zur Abwechslung das Wasser arschkalt, weshalb wir uns immer zwei mal überlegt haben reinzugehen.

    Maderas, Nicaragua

    June 19, 2017 in Nicaragua ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Waking up to a beautiful sunrise and pumping waves below at Playa Maderas. What a great way to wake up after 24+hours intransit. After breakfast we went for a surf at Playa Hermosa then later sunset beers at Playa Maderas!
    Welcome to Nicaragua!

    My kind of Sunday Funday in Maderas!

    June 25, 2017 in Nicaragua ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    Uncrowded waves, beers on the beach then cocktails by the pool while watching a beautiful sunset. All with a great crew - way better than a $30 pool crawl with pissed gringos in San Juan!

    Perfect way to cap off a week at Rapture Surf Camp!
