We are so happy with our new home on lot #22 at Brisas. Here’s a quick little tour looking at what life is like living in Nicaragua with our 5 month old baby girl Luna.
It’s been almost two weeks and we’re loving our new home at Brisas Del Alma. We’re still very busy settling in, putting finishing touches on the house (building shelves to store all our stuff mostly), and embracing our new lifestyle. It feels so good! Here are a few quick pics I snapped the other day to give you a taste. Gorgeous sunrise volcano view. Lobo waits patiently to head to the beach.Walking from home.Kim stretches it out before paddling out. A small but super fun day!
If the Boom isn’t happening or you aren’t into thumpy beach breaks, the island point is a fun left accessible by a very short boat ride. Check out these ladies enjoying the point on a fun swell in December.
The waves aren’t perfect every day. Sometimes it’s small and kinda closed out, lumpy, and plagued by riptides. That’s just a part of surfing. But the sunrise is beautiful, the beach is empty, the water is warm. Even if the waves aren’t firing, the surf lifestyle is awesome. On this day, I took my two dogs for a sunrise surf session, caught a few little waves, and just appreciated the moments.
On a day with good offshore winds and solid swell, Holly and her friend Nadia ran down the beach, paddled across the estuary, and out into the lineup at the island point. Luckily, there was a photographer on hand to capture a few moments from the session.
Holly Beck owns a lot at Brisas and runs Womens Surf and Yoga Retreats at a beach nearby. In between surf retreats, she surfs right out front at the Boom. BOOM!
This is life in Nicaragua. Grab the dogs, run down to the beach, pull into some super fun tubes!
Elton Sanchez is a local kid from Asseradores that has only been surfing a little over 5 years. With constant exposure to good waves and pro surfers, he is one of a handful of local kids in the area pulling stylish airs, trying flips, and getting super sick tubes.
The difference between Elton and some of the others is that he always has a smile on his face in the water. He’s watched his homebreak transform from a secret spot to a sought out surf destination but he doesn’t mind. He’s stoked no matter what.

He’s also an artist with prints, canvases, and murals available.
