Surf Nicaragua

Surf Nicaragua is an EP from Arizona thrash metal band, Sacred Reich. It was released on October 4, 1988 on Metal Blade Records and follows the band's debut album, Ignorance, released the previous year.

The EP contains a cover version of the Black Sabbath song, "War Pigs", which also appeared on the band's next EP, Alive at the Dynamo in 1989, in live form. The song "Surf Nicaragua" contains a part from the song "Wipe Out" as well as the drum part from the Hawaii 5-0 theme song. The live tracks "Ignorance" and "Death Squad" were only supposed to be on the CD version, but due to a pressing error, they appeared on all formats.

Heavy metal band Soulfly covered the song "One Nation" on their 2002 album, 3.
