Time to search for waves: Nicaragua! 11:45 a.m August 20, 2012.

About a week ago I got the call from Matt Oberman that we were on alert to pack and go to Nicaragua based on the swell models.  With my schedule, I was not able to leave when they did on Friday of last week, so I am waiting a few days to catch my flight down there.  As Matt and crew were in the Southern Region until yesterday we are all meeting in the northern region late tonight to meet up to chase it.  Look out for a post on our first day chasing it on Tuesday evening!  Coming along with me is mini grom, Noah Flegel, who just came off winning the Jr. Pro World Wakeboard title yesterday!  So this is gonna be a littlecelebratory trip for him.  Congrats Noah.  Below is a shot from our February trip to a similar spot on the map.
