Giant’s Foot Surf Tours is one of the longest running surf camps in the country and has been giving surf tours of Nicaragua for over ten years. We provide unlimited boat rides to 14 different breaks in the Gigante area, and our boat usually goes out for three boat surf trips per day. You will get the best waves in Nicaragua when they are firing at their best. If Manzanillo will be working at six in the morning, we surf Manzanillo at six in the morning. Some other Nicaragua surf camps’ boat captains don’t even show up until 8:00; by then we have already crushed out dawn patrol and are refueling with one of our surf lodge’s delicious homemade breakfasts for another surf tour. At Giant’s Foot Surf Tours, we are surfers, and we want to bring you to surf Colorados, surf Popoyo, surf Lance’s Left, and surf Playgrounds when they are working, because we want to be there too!
When you’re not surfing Nicaragua’s world class waves, our beachfront surf hotel is the perfect place to lay back and relax in a hammock with a cold beer. One cold beer not good enough for you? Don’t worry your wallet, with our all-inclusive surf tours beers at the house and on the boat are included in your package. In addition, the town of Playa Gigante boasts a variety of small restaurants and bars where you can safely mingle with other surfers and travelers passing through town.
If you only have one week to make your surf vacation count, want to be on the best waves in Nicaragua when they are working at their best, and demand the best surf tours Nicaragua has to offer then Giant’s Foot Surf Tours is the best surf tour around. For your dollar, no other surf camp in Nicaragua offers the value our all-inclusive does.

There are a few basic hostels with mainly surfers, travellers and locals. A few times a week the bar fills up and regularly hosts live music and open mic nights. There are activities to do including sunset horseback riding, rappelling and fishing.
Surfing Southern Nicaragua…. World-class waves without world-class crowds!
Southern Nicaragua has a large wave selection best experienced with minimal distractions, and even fewer people. With GFS’s beach-front location and experienced surf team, we’ve mastered how to experience maximum fun with minimal crowds.
Surfing the Rivas province of Nicaragua is our specialty. When you ride with GFS you are in for unlimited boat trips to over 14 different breaks, and our guides know the best tide and swell conditions for all of them.
Southern Nicaragua is perhaps the only place in the world where virtually year-round off-shore winds and a wide swell window combine to produce consistently good waves – Spring, Summer, and Fall.
Nicaragua is exposed to pretty much all southern swells, which guarantees a lot of waves throughout much of the year.
There is a considerable increase in the power and frequency of swells starting in April, which corresponds to the wet season and the slackening of the offshore winds.
Beginning in May or June through October we get tropical showers several times a week.
In late September or October the rains pick up a bit for a few weeks which is the warning that the wet season is nearly finished.
The “Lake Effect”
Lake Nicaragua provides a geographically smooth passage for the north easterly trade winds to pass through the Central American Isthmus. This results in consistent offshore wind along the pacific coast of the lake region.
Like the trades, the offshores intensify going into winter and moderate going into summer.
