At the tail end of August, Nicaragua received some killer swell which coincided with the explosion of a fuel tank at the Puma Energy facility in Puerto Sandino. The smoke from the fire billowed over the Pacific for almost two weeks, but that didn't stop anyone from missing out on the near perfect waves at Shacks and Shifties.
