Both Quinn and I constantly promote on Life Out of the Box that everyone should follow their passion and pursuit their dream. Because, well, why wouldn’t you? Since living in Nicaragua we have aggressively chased our dream and in doing so we have met others that are in the same pursuit of their own dream. Chasing a dream is never easy and often requires one to take a moment to reflect on what direction to go next. For me, the ideal place to relax and reflect on our life, our company and everything else in between is conveniently located in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua.
Surf Ranch Action Sports Resort is place that was once a crazy dream that has now became an awesome reality. Lucas Boychuk and his brother Travis left their jobs in Canada to create the first action sports resort in Central America at the ripe age of 19 and 21 years old.
It all started one night, over a case of beers in their parents hot tub, as they discussed their dreams. Before they knew it they were on a flight to Nicaragua with an idea to purchase a plot of land so that they could start a business and create their ideal life. They had a plot of land, a business plan and a dream to build a resort unlike any.
Apparently, that’s all you really need because five years later the, dream is still in full pursuit.
They have built an amazing resort with seven villas, thirteen condos, a beautiful pool and a fun skate park, which I thoroughly enjoy using.
I love this spot. Not only because it is a place I would create for myself to relax, but because it represents making your dreams come true. Two skater kids drinking beer in a hot tub decided to create something bigger than them. Just like us. Make it happen. If all of us crazy kids can, you can too.
