Greetings mike m: If flying into MGA with boards, a rental car is preferred. If you are staying at G.P., they can arrange transportation for you. If you need to go by bus, taxi to Mercado Israel Lewites and take a bus to Pochomil. Before getting to Masachapa/Pochomil, get off at km 49 and you can probably hitch a ride or eventually a taxi will pass by on the highway and you can negotiate from there.
I’ve taken Farmstay guests there on daytrips before too. There are surf guides that can do this too. My friends at NicaSurfing.com are headquartered in Managua and could get you on a run to G.P.
Now to get to SJdS from G.P. on bus, you can take a bus to Jinotepe, and from there a bus to Rivas, and then to SJdS. Alternatively, you can go back to Managua, get to Mercado Huembes, and take an expresso to San Juan del Sur.

Cheers, Mike @ Farmstay El Porton Verde, Managua
