Nicaragua Surf Report

 

Nicaragua Surf Report

We generally see the first of the Southern Hemisphere swells in early April.  Swells run consistently through November and we even get infrequent offseason swells from December – April.  Although we are not located in a position to get hit by hurricanes, we are effected by the tropical depressions and hurricanes that tend to form off our coasts during hurricane season.  September/October tend to be the most active around here so those two months can bring some unsettled weather (more often in October).  For this reason October rates are generally more affordable. Those who have rolled the dice and booked October have occasionally scored all around with cheaper accommodation rates and less crowds.

Producer, singer­-songwriter, drummer and poet, Jameson Hodder, has released “Sound Waves”, his first solo album.

From an early age, Jameson started listening to the world—from catching a glimpse of the explosion of music and breakdancing on the streets of LA as a 7 ­year ­old while en route to Baja, to changing trains as a nine ­year ­old in Jamaica/Queens and realizing the over­ flowing of art and life in this world, and now traveling around the planet with his surfboard and cajón celebrating the creative spirit of true freedom.

Son of Jimmy Hodder, acclaimed original drummer for Steely Dan, Jameson began developing his musical foundation at an early age. Influenced by all­ night jam sessions in the family living ­room with the musical legends and exposed to multiple styles of music and creative communications, his music bridges the boundaries between impossible and the imaginable. He knows art is formless and exists in each unique moment, so he embraces the firm roots of his foundation while always yielding to the possibilities of the universe.
