A strike mission is pretty simple. First check the forecast to make sure the waves are still going to be good (swells have a tendency to not live up to hype). Then book a ticket 24–48 hours before your flight. If the reports are still sticking to the size, you’re safe to pull the trigger.
Get to your destination early. Sleeping and eating are compromised, and you surf a ton.
My trip to Nicaragua had all the ingredients of a perfectly planned strike mission, and it played out better then expected.
I shared waves and laughs with amazing friends and made some new ones.
Four days of sun and fun reminds you just how life is suppose to be lived.
