About this property

Beachfront Surf Camp in Northern Nicaragua
At ThunderBomb surf camp, you will have a once in a lifetime, mind blowing surf experience. Experience uncrowded waves with luxury accommodations.

The Property
ThunderBomb Surf Camp is directly located on the beautiful beach of Santa Maria Del Mar and was designed to have an appearance of a small resort without taking away the home away from home feel. With 5 separate houses on a small property you will have all the privacy in the world with only steps away from the large tiki bar and ocean. For our chefs we have a separate house holding a large restaurant class kitchen.  Our Camp was designed for the addicted surfer keeping in mind a great ambience for a family vacation or group surf trip. With our green surroundings and great sunsets we hope you make it home yearning to return to ThunderBomb Surf Camp

The Accommodations
With the exception of the unique tiki bar loft all our rooms have the luxury of A/C and television. Did I mention the tiki? It is our center point and located directly on the water. This large space houses hammocks, a yoga platform for practicing or learning, large round tables for dinner or playing games and an inviting bar with friendly helpers.

Waves and Surfing
Here you can surf world-class waves, get barreled at "The Boom", carve epic points, or even learn to surf without the crowds that plague the beaches of Costa Rica and southern Nicaragua. With our surf vehicles and local boat captains you will have the freedom to surf more than just the beach out front. Here's more details about some of our favorite (and closest) waves.

  • Santa Maria - This peaky beach break is located right in front of the tiki and is perfect for beginner and intermediate surfers.
  • The Boom - Slowly gaining recognition as a world class beach break, this thundering wave can be heard from quite a distance. Compared to Hossergor without the crowds and Puerto Escondido without the size capability. Many peaks set up along a sandy beach throwing tropical A-frames in shallow water allowing for some epic barrels.
  • Island Point - Only accessible by boat, this left-point can handle any size and works on all tides with rippable walls that go forever!
