Rappelling in Playa Gigante - Nicaragua

Playa Gigante is tucked between a super fun surf spot and a towering rock formation called Pie de Gigante (Giant's foot) - The foot that looks over Playa Gigante, Playa Amarillo, Colorado, Panga Drops and Rancho Santana to the north. The view from the foot extends past these places, and the ocean sunsets are breathtaking. The foot's south side offers a 289-foot drop that that sets the scene for the ultimate rappel in Nicaragua.

Rain is starting and June if finally here.  The swells are 5-7 feet with short intervals.  Some of our favorite surf spots are popping off.  Amarillo is super peeky with makable barrels and long rides.  The hardest thing is the paddle out but well worth the work. 
   Snapper and Dorado are biting so the fishing is salty.  Capt Rob Plath and the spirt of Mukul just places 2nd in the fun fish catagory in the Mukul tourniment last week.  Now the preasure is on to raise mosnsters from hell for the Flor de Cana tourniment in San Juan del Sur this weekend. 
  Rappels are turning wet and fun but the sickest new shot is the Night Rapple.  300 feet into the darkness, thats our kind of fun. The kitchen specials are savory and the bar specials are a deal. The full moon party on the 14th has a confirmed 1000 people, should be unforgettable.
