My son and I stayed at Rise Up in mid August and scored overhead waves all week. The first three days at Puerto Sandino and the rest at the beach break and river mouth by the house. It was double overhead the first day at the point but got really good a little smaller(two feet overhead) when it lined up for super long rides. Although the waves were sick all week the best part of the trip was the beautiful desolate beach and the wonderful hosts. Phil and his crew are super chill and will make sure you are taken care of. It is also nice to know you are staying with an operation that really is in tune with the locals and is looking to be a positive influence in the community. If you are looking for great waves, very little to no crowds and a trip off the beaten path Rise Up is the spot. Thanks Rise Up and we will be back!
