October is shaping up to be an excellent month with El Nino producing late season South West Swells. Surfline.com is forecasting two back-to-back swells from Oct. 3rd-10th and the conditions are looking great. There is no better place to experience a late season south swell than at Chicama Surf Resort.
Built in 2006 directly on the beach at one of the longest waves in the world, Chicama Surf Resort is the epitome of comfort and class. The resort has 19 tastefully appointed bedrooms with balconies, an infinity pool overlooking the point, trained chefs, steam room, plus massage and spa facilities. So when you aren’t scoring the longest waves of your life, you’re able to truly relax and enjoy this South American dream destination.
Hey Sean and Bryan, Hope you are both doing well. Thanks again for the help with Africa. The safari experience was unreal, Cape Town was awesome as well, and J-Bay was probably the best right point I’ve surfed. See a couple of pics from my first full day there—it was firing all day!!
Got a little smaller the next few days, but still fun as hell. So many barrels and long fast rides. Loved it! And the dolphins are just ridiculous in how playful they are in the line-up—special place. Can’t wait to go back there one day as the crowds were not nearly as bad as I anticipated for how good of a wave it was. Surfed my brains out this day. Stoked!
Last weekend one of the best swells in the past decade arrived in the Mentawai Islands, and Kandui Left (NoKandui) was the premier wave providing some of the most amazing barrels seen in ages. A number of big barrel chargers arrived on Kandui Villas on Friday just in time to get some of the best waves of their lives. This amazing 9-minute video from this mega swell was shot by Kandui Villas videographer, Rodrigo Zeni.
After a grueling year on the World Tour in 2014, the Smith Optics International team rider CJ Hobgood wanted to get away and press the reset button before another big year in 2015. The team made a mid-winter strike mission to the Caribbean side of Panama for some of the punchy, tropical beach breaks and a little relaxation at Red Frog Bungalows.
