Surfing in Nicaragua ranges from world class to open for beginners. Additionally the waves are largely empty. Long board surfing in Nicaragua is particularly excellent with dozens of mild beach breaks that are easily accessible, many of which have hotels and resorts nearby for overnight stays.

In the curl in Northern Nicaragua – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingI want to say there aren’t any surfing spots in Nicaragua because I like to keep it as low-key as possible, but Nicaragua has some of the best surf spots in the world. You can see that by a lot of the pros who have come into the country in the last 3-5 years and shot and produced videos that were then sent out for sale.
 
If you get up to northern Nicaragua, there are more waves within a 5-mile coastline than anywhere in the world. You can compare that to the Seven Mile Miracle on the North Shore in Hawaii. We’ve got what I call the Five Mile Miracle in Nicaragua. Nicaragua has super heavy powerful waves like The Boom, and the super easy learning waves like Nahualapa Bay or Playa Saint Maria. 
 
Also good surfing spots are Madera Negra, Punta Punta Aposentillo, Rocky Point, and Coco Loco Surf Break. All of those are packed into the 5-mile stretch of coastline in northern Nicaragua up by the Marina Punta del Sol in the state of Chinandega.
 
Surfing is a pretty important part of the culture in Nicaragua. The surfing culture of the foreigners are also coming in, and the young kids are coming up and are really starting to rip it up. The foreigners moving in are bringing in surfboards and teaching the kids in Nicaragua how to surf. We’re at the point where the kids are actually teaching us how to surf. A lot of kids 14-22 years old are surfing really well and are having fun doing it.
