Brisas Has A New Water Tower

water tower

Brisas has made some serious upgrades to it’s water system. In this photo you can see the older hand-dug well (covered by the green roof) that is already connected to the lots in Phase 1 with underground pipes. Brisas has recently installed several new machine-drilled deep wells (one of which is visible in this photo – the concrete block with white tube sticking up) to ensure an ample water supply for all lots.

The new water tower is also complete which will be outfitted with a 10,000 Gallon tank that will provide gravity fed water to all the lots in Phase 1.

Transworld “Go There” – Northern Nicaragua

Ok, ok, the secret is out. While the Northern stretch of Nicaragua’s coastline is still much less packed with dudes dragging boardbags than the South, it doesn’t mean it’s a secret anymore. The boys at Transworld Surf visited sometime last year with a crew of pros and filmed a few sessions out at the Boom. Thankfully they don’t actually mention the name of the spot, leaving a little effort required to potential followers. It doesn’t look like they totally scored, but put the best surfers in the world out at a punchy beachbreak and they will make it look fun! Check it out.
