The drone view of Brisas Del Alma starting with Lot #14. There are lots available with good title, easy building, water and power access, walking distance to the great waves at the Boom. Own your dream.
Just a typical August week of waves. Check it out.
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.
We’ve built a few houses/structures in Nicaragua so far, but none are really baby friendly. Either too small, no power, no water, or both, we had been planning the true family house for a while. Once we found out there was baby on the way, we finalized the plan and broke ground on a 1400 sq ft, (1900 including workshop), 2.5 bedroom, 2 bath home on lot #22 at Brisas. We’ve let our team know that the pressure is on to finish the house before September when the baby is due. Will it happen? follow along on our blogs: hipEhabitat.com and saltwatermama.com
A tour by Kim Obermeyer of a couple of lots in the Brisas Del Alma development. This clip was filmed on a windy day in the dry season, soon after the land was burned to clear brush. In a month or two it will be nice and green again, but this gives you an idea of what the lots look like.
Woke up before 5am, pounded some coffee, waxed up, snuck through the shortcut in the barbed wire fence, ran down to the beach, paddled out, and pulled into a few quick little tubes. It was small and gray but it was a good test of my GoPro Camera tail cam setup. Can’t wait for more swell and bigger tubes!
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.
Since buying our lot a few months ago we’ve started making some improvements. The fence and some tree planting came first. Now we’ve hooked into the community water, have planted some non-GMO corn and have begun building our caretaker’s house. Check out the progress!
