Zadda’s Blue Leg Saga

The guys went in with a small boat – not the usual boat that Polly drives. ( Polly usually has a med kit ) Swell was solid, 15ft – up to 20ft sets. The guys were towing, and local surfer Dustin Hollick was on the ski. Zadda got towed into this beast, and lost it on the step at the bottom.

I want to do what he does

I am a 38 y/o family physician who has been surfing since I was 5. I recently flew down to Nicaragua to chase a swell (got some really fun waves). While I was in the country I serendipitously was called into action. A young 17 y/o got smacked in his eye with his board-thankfully the injury did not effect his cornea or other important structures. He did however cut his lower lid and was scared he lost his eye.

Nose of board vs face

Then felt my chin and once again ended up feeling my teeth, this time not via my mouth but via the second newly created mouth just below by original one. Better get off to the hospital I thought…

Pumping waves claim victim in the jungle!!

Back to the jungle. What a feeling. Arriving Monday, with a new swell on the cards. Since then it’s been 3 days of cooking Money Trees, with the odd launching pad & speedies sets on the high. A solid swell arrived this morning, with the first dosage of carnage! Broken boards, leggies, & plenty of […]

The hungry reef…

Waves have been pumping 6-8ft and Speedies has been on too, the froth is on. The camps are puzzlingly quiet so the surf has been extremely uncrowded- I’d say with the next swell on it’s way, it’s a good time to get out here…. The reef has been eating boards and skin pretty relentlessly… Some […]
