  • Hey guys, is there any special discount for a local Nicaraguan? I´ve been dying to learn how to shape boards but here in Nicaragua nobody shapes anything! I would love to be the first Nica to do it.
    I´ve been surfing for 16 years, 6 years ago I founded the National Surf Circuit and I´ve been the President of the Surfing Association and the Manager of the National Team since then.

    It is really hard for me to get that kind of money to participate in the workshop, maybe you can give me a discount? I don´t have to spend the nights at Los Cardones, I´ll be just for the workshop… call it Community Service or something.

    Please, let me know if this is possible.

    Thank you so much and… Welcome to Nicaragua!
