We live and breathe surf here at ThunderBomb Surf Camp in Nicaragua. Our team is comprised of dedicated people that want to ensure you have the ultimate surf adventure, beginning with the owners, Jonathan Griffin and Albertus Valkenburg. Jonathan Griffin (who moved to Nicaragua to feed his surf addiction) was born and raised in Boston, MA and will be your host in and out of the water. Albertus Valkenburg grew up across the Atlantic in Holland, and will be managing your stay to perfection.
Additional team members include, Xiomara our local chef, German our Guide and manager. Don Ever, security guard/gardener, who is always smiling and willing to offer a helping hand. He keeps things running at ThunderBomb surf camp while we’re out doing what we do best – surfing! Maryines in housekeeping, she ensures that things stay tidy and neat. Last, but not least, we have Antonio(Father of Alex local surf champ), our boat-captain and local fisherman who knows ‘his waves’ better than anyone!
Our camp is fully equipped to provide the maximum surf experience. We have Toyota Safari 4x4's for getting to our destinations and work closely with local boat captains to surf all of our prime locations and conditions. Of course you’ll enjoy a lot of your time at ThunderBomb in the water, but we have designed our surroundings to be a perfect place to relax outside of the water as well.
We hope you’ll enjoy drinks on the beach, lounging in an oceanside hammock, and everything that paradise has to offer. You’ll feel right at home...or far from it! We strive to make your experience as memorable and enjoyable as possible. We mainly use local (and seasonal) produce and other products for your culinary delights. Our team members Strive to keep our area clean, green and treat the locals with the same respect as we treat our guests. We would love to share the beauty of Nicaragua with you.
See you in the water. Yeeeeeeeeew!
