It was a breakthrough 5 days for me... maybe Karen too I think. At Bahaia Majaugual there are mostly surfers, camped out in tents in dorms. A fire every night on the beach, hammoks, a bar, and not much else. 15 minute walk to the break. Every day for the last 5 have been about the same - Get up around 6:30, walk to the beach with surfboard and shorts only. Surf for an hour or two, come back for some breakfast. Read, lie in the hammok, lunch. Go surfing, another couple of hours, chill out, dinner. Sleep. Every day. Extremely relaxing. San Juan now seems like a bustling metropilis.
The breakthrough involves the action of surfing - I caught many waves. Progressively improved a little. Surfing is by far the hardest sport I've done, and now Im hoplessly addicted. Every day I w ould improve a little... yesterday I caught about 6 or 7 waves... there is nothing in the world like that experience, mountains of water moving you, gliding exhiliration. Anyway, were off to some tourist sights around Nicaragua, but have another week planned at a beach in Costa Rica for surfing, looking forward to that a lot.Posted by choppen5 at January 13, 2003 05:34 PM
