ISA World Masters Surfing Championships Puts Nicaragua on the World Surfing Map
PLAYA COLORADO, Nicaragua, July 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Nicaragua, home this week to the ISA World Masters Surfing Championships, is quickly winning the hearts of the world’s best surfers. Former world champion Sunny Garcia, who won his morning heat yesterday, told The Nicaragua Dispatch that he has surfed extensively in Costa Rica, but that after one day of surfing in Nicaragua, he likes Nicaragua better.
“The country is beautiful, the water is warm, the waves are good, the people are nice, the food is good–you can’t ask for a better place to come,” said the Hawaii native. “The surfing conditions in Nicaragua are perfect for tourism, because surfers don’t need to be professional to look good here.”
ISA Contest Director Marcos Bukao, of Brazil, said that Nicaragua is privileged to have great year-round conditions, a consistent off-shore wind and a sandy ocean floor.
“Lots of people from around the world are going to tune in to watch the surfing championships this week,” said Bukao. “They’re going to see a warm, beautiful, peaceful, safe and friendly country with good waves – perfect for a surfing vacation.”
