On Surfing Nicaragua – Wave Tribe Product Review

On Surfing Nicaragua – Wave Tribe Product Review

Lucas is our youngest member and we are stoke to have him represent the younger generation.

He is an awesome shredder and also has a great appreciation for the environment.

Recently he went on an epic trip and this is what he shared with us . . .

Recently I went on a surf trip to Nicaragua with my dad (doug) and my sister(anna), it was a trip to last a lifetime.

After spending about 26 hours traveling with three stops it was a mission just to get there. When we were there the waves were not all that promising head high onshore shifty beach break, I could not help myself and be a little disappointed.

That morning we woke up to pristine overhead barreling beach break with peaks up and down the beach we were stoked!

That is how it was prefect mornings with onshore afternoons kicking in around eleven o’clock. being there I had a lot of time to try out my new Wave Tribe products.

The leashes held up and worked great only breaking one for the whole month I was down there after being caught inside by a seven wave set.

The deck pads had tons of traction to where your foot would not slide around until you would have to wax it like I’ve had to do with other deck pads I owned.

The board bags had great padding and neither of my boards were dinged on all those flights. While we were down there we met Holly Beck who we spent a lot of time surfing with because she lived near to the camp we were staying at, It was very nice to watch her shred and to hang out with her, Ryan, and the dogs.

The only thing that bothered me there was the amount of trash on the beaches and all the plastic you would find floating around in the water it really made me sad to see a place that beautiful ruined by trash everywhere. I would try to help by picking up trash every time I went to the beach but it was not enough to make a difference.

That is why I think that it is so important for companies like Wave Tribe to care more about what they are making and how they can make it recyclable and decomposable instead of looking for the cheapest way to make the product.

That is the story of my trip we had a really good time met a lot of cool people and hopefully I’ll be back as soon as possible.

Thanks for reading!
