Head high swell
Day one: We finally arrived at the border, La Union and Nicaragua.  We waited two hours for border inspectors to let us go.  We drove south, about 80 miles to our first stop, Las Flores.  Great beach break, nice waves, but crowded  We parked alongisde the road and rented a "champita" or a leaf-hut with hammacks and rested for a few hours. W gathered enough information about swells and got a snese of the local vibe by walking around the area talking to people and kids.   We went out and surfed in what seemed wakiki, crowded, and every wave was a party wave, two, three at a time.  There were beach resorts and travel guides everywhere catering to those who have paid their 1K dues.  We felt like outsideres.
My fiend, Milton
We packed things up and headed to La Paz to Milton's place, a freind of mine.  We arrived late at night, 9pm or so.  There was Milton, his two young brothers and his four dogs, one dog, a female pitbull, named Paris, after the Hilton.

Day two: Las Flores, another beach, not the same one.  Milton took us just two miles away from his house a placed known by the locals as "Fishermans Pits", a secret spot only known by the locals.   A dreamspot for any surfer, and wave quality was that of a perfect score, heaven, eureka!  We surfed all morning, got out, had lunch, "pan dulce" and coke, and surfed all afternoon.   Smotth glassy conditions all day, everything working in our favor.   After the day-long session, we headed down town, wehre we ate the famous pupusas, yum!  Each of must have had five of them, our bill came to $20 for a super size meal for four people, including drinks!
