Puerto Escondido

Finally we arrived to Puerto Escondido even though the buss from Tapachula ended up taking 12 hours instead of 8. We got here at noon, and then spent the rest of the day waling around to get to now the place a bit. The next day we figured out what beaches that had any waves and then walked to one of the smaller once since the main beach “aka” Mexican Pipline were suppose to be huge. We got the a beach called Carizarillo. It is probably one of the cleanest and most beautiful beaches I ever seen. Especially after all the dirty and almost black beaches in Guatemala. To bad the waves wasn´t as good as the beach was clean. In the afternoon the wind picked up a lot since a smaller Hurricane hit south of here, and I didn´t go out at all. We can defiantly feel that it´s hurricane season now.

Tomorrow we are planning to wake up earlie and try out “La Punta” or the point down at Zicatela.

Erica and I spent a couple of days in Paredon. I only surfed twice there since the waves were kind of closing out. After that we went up to northern Guatemala, another small fishing village called Tilapa. On the way to Tilapa we passed through Doles and Chiquitas banana plantation. Endless fields of banana trees.
In Tilapa we stayed at the beach once again. Unfortunately the waves was even worse here and I didn´t go out at all, we still had some good days with a lot of tanning. I also got some time to get restarted with my old alwaysinwater project.
I snaped some photos of some driftwood covered in fishing net. Seems like it´s a lot of ghost net floating around there in the ocean…

At the moment we are sitting at a internet café in Tapachula. From here we going to catch a ten hour bus to Puerto Esondido. If the surf isn´t good there I don´t think there is any surfable waves anywhere 😉

Guatemala – Paredon

After some more days of travelling and a night in Escuintla Erica and I finally arrive to Paredon a small fishing village in Guatemala. We are staying in a two floor bungalow with a perfect ocean view. The only thing we are waiting for now is the waves. Last night was a night off thunderstorms rain and wind, so the water is still a bit rough after that.
Well i guess I can´t complain since the surf actually starts to look better now 😉

Close to the surf

After one night up in the mountain we are finally back on the coast again 😉 The place we are staying at now is probably the hostels closest to the surf I ever stayed at. It literally breaks against the hostel and the surf is just out there. Erica snapped the surf photos sitting in the hammock. She might actually enjoy taking photos from now on 🙂

After the surf I walked up and down the beach taking photos. The house on the cliff might be our future house if the price is right 😉 I also meet this guy who collected oysters. Hi sells them to restaurants for 10$ a dozen, and he had oysters worth about 30$ when he came in. For El Salvador that’s a really good income for two hours work.

Viajeros de El Salvador

Ericas and my plan were to leave the El Cuco area Thursday morning to head up north. Wednesday morning after my morning session the owner of the hostel Tom, the same person that I normally surf with asked us if we felt like hitch a ride up north. Since traveling with car instead of bus makes a big different over here we decided to go, the fact that we were heading for volcanic lake didn´t sound to bad either.
Since Tom has his own TV show here in El Salvador, Viajeros de El Salvador, traveling with him always gets interesting. Before sunset we left shore on a proem which they normally use for diving excursions. The only thing I have to say is that it was an interesting night 😉

Later today Erica and I are catching a bus from San Salvador to El Tunco, and from there our final destination is El Zonte for the next and last four days before we are of for Guatemala.

Erica haven´t been surfing since we got to El Salvador, but yesterday she went out twice. During high-tide the river mouth close to our hostel works really great. I tried to go out and catch some waves myself, but I tell you that Erica did a lot better then me 😉






Well at least I had some sick rides earlier in the morning. Ill make sure to make a movie soon again with all the new material I got.

Long rights

After some days without surf, trying to get to El Salvador I finally scored. The owner of the hostel we are staying at is a cool older american duder. The night before he told me to wake him up if I wanted to go surf… so I did 6:30am.

-Hi Tom!!
-Ehh WHAT!!
-You ready to go surf?
-I have been waiting for you (still in bed sleeping)… lets go!

Well it was worth every single hour getting here. I got the three longest rides of my life for sure.

This is just some of the pictures. Ill make sure to put some video up when the internet getting better

Traped in Potosi

It has been a couple of days since last time. What happened is that Erica and I left Las Penitas Sunday morning to get to a place called Potosi. From Potosi which a small village in northern Nicaragua we were supposed to take a boat Monday morning to El Salvador. On Monday morning 9AM became 10PM and 10PM came 11PM, and this went on the whole day. We ended up calling the hostel in El Salvador who planned the route and promised us that it would be a boat there Monday morning. They said that there was nothing they could do and that we would get a night for free when we showed up the next day. Well same thing happened the next day. Erica and I spent another day waiting for a boat to get to El Salvador. The guy working at the border, (which probably is the least busy border in the world) told us that there wasn´t any boat because there wasn´t any fish to trade. Now we know the real meaning of the expression “mana mana”.

We called the hostel again that night and they thought that we left and went somewhere else. They couldn´t believe that we were still there and promised that we could stay for free for ever at their hostel when we got there. So we spent another night but the same thing hapend again, no boat.

That was enough. We decided to travel back to Chinadega and go to El Salvador by buss, and that’s what we are doing right now. At the moment we are at a hotel just across the border from Nicaragua, 45 minutes into Honduras. Tomorrow we are going to wake up early and catch a bus to the El Salvadorian border and try to get to Las Flores asp, and cash in one free week.

Big thanks to a local family from Honduras who more or less helped us across the border and then drove us and checked us in to the hotel we are staying at. Amazing what some bad jokes in pore Spanish can do 😉
