The Surf Lodge is located on the beach, walking distance to all restaurants shops and bars. There are four spacious, air-conditioned rooms, each with a private bathroom. They have an eight person capacity, and normally room friends together. The Lodge has a safe, Wi-Fi, satellite TV, iPod dock, and DVD player. There is no swimming pool, but who needs one when you’ve got the ocean in your back yard?

There are 14 different breaks within their little coast line that their boat travels to; with the furthest being an hour away. They vary from world class sandy bottom barreling beach breaks, to horseshoe shaped reef breaks, to cobblestone left point breaks. The good news about southern Nicaragua is that they always have waves and it’s offshore all day. The best swell is south and southwest and we pick up north swells as well. They have the advantage with the boats of surfing private beaches that face all different directions.

Swell period around here is always super long, which means that one and a half feet at 16 seconds (for instance) means chest to head high. Even if it’s dead flat everywhere, they have some open water reef breaks like panga drops, that break way in on the inside chest to head high, fast, and fun. The fourteen breaks within their range vary between beach breaks, reef breaks, and point breaks. The most famous point breaks there are lefts, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be any fun for the regular footed folk.

Frequent breaks

  • Maderas: rights and lefts, sheltered beach break, near San Juan del Sur – usually crowded
  • Manzanillo: perfect left point break only accessible by boat
  • Amarillo: rights and lefts, (north-point has a great right wedge) beach break
  • Colorado: lefts and rights, world-class barreling beach break, private beach
  • Panga drops: left and right long open-ocean reef break, private beach
  • Santana: rights and lefts almond-shaped barreling beach break (great left wedge off the rocks)
  • Popoyo: perfect right and left reef break
  • Lance’s left: perfect left point break, sheltered from the offshore, boat access only
  • Vera cruz (playgrounds): cobblestone reef break, similar to lower trestles, boat access only

Included in this surf camp is two one-hour long boat trips.

Dale Dagger Surf Tours is based in a tiny fishing village that rarely sees life from the outside world. People live in shanty’s and shacks, and make a living off of fishing. They are kind, wonderful people and extremely friendly. As most surf camps may leave you feeling isolated inland, Dale Dagger Surf Tours gives you the option of having a cultural experience in their sweet little village, or simply just chilling in one of their hammocks on the beach in your back yard.

Dale Dagger Surf Tours serve just about anything you want (that they can get there), and are open to suggestions. Breakfast, on average, consists of homemade granola with raisins and yogurt, fresh local fruit, steel cut oats, golden pancakes, smoothies, cheddar and bacon breakfast burritos, gallo pinto, and peppered eggs. Lunch is snapper tacos with homemade Mexican flour tortillas, mamas chicken soup, quesadillas with fresh pico de gallo and taco salad, Nicaragua favorite arroz con pollo, fresh local ceviche, and hearty chili with a kick. Dinner can be grilled garlic and lime local fish, home-made vegetable lasagna, zingy caesar salads with fresh homemade croutons, barbecue chicken and dill potato salad, beer battered lobster tacos, whole fried fish with the eyeball and everything, fried plantains, and sometimes the biggest pile of sashimi you’ve ever seen (depending on their fisherman and boat captain Walter). They've also got snacks, cookies, popcorn and soda for you junk food lovers.
