Giant’s Foot Surf

Surfing the Rivas province of Nicaragua is our specialty. When you ride with GFS you are in for unlimited boat trips to over 14 different breaks, and our guides know the best tide and swell conditions for all of them. We drop you off right in the line-up of great waves you can only get to by boat.  Once you and your buddies wrap up your session at one of our beach breaks, reef breaks, or point breaks, you can throw out a few lines and troll your way home. It’s always nice to haul in a little dorado for dinner.

The Giant’s Foot Surf is an intimate surf lodge on the beach in Gigante, Nicaragua. There are a trickle of tourists, a few ex-pats, a few locals, and a lot of cows and pigs. Otherwise it’s just us and our guests hanging out. See photos and descriptions below.



Round trip transportation from the Managua International Airport (MGA)to Gigante, Nicaragua in an SUV or tour van.  It is approximately a 2.5 hour drive.  Gigante is located on the coast of the Rivas province between San Juan Del Sur and Popoyo. The nearest city is Rivas (45 minutes).


Double occupancy room with A/C and private bath located directly on the beach at Playa Gigante.


Total surf transportation by sea. Our boat runs to the surf breaks from pre-sunrise dawn patrol until the sun sets. Distances range from 5 minutes to one hour depending on the wave being surfed. There’s even a sweet little left right in front of the house when conditions are right. We run 25 foot boats (6 passengers, 2 crew), with a Canopy, 115hp Suzuki 4 stroke, and all necessary equipment.

Meals & Drinks

Three well balanced meals are served daily (as well as dawn patrol cereal and coffee), camp-style. Unlimited soda, beer, and rum drinks are included. We try to combine local culinary traditions with more typical American cuisine. We also buy fresh fish from the local fishermen who bring in their catch daily. We eat 1 or 2 dinners per week at local restaurants.
