A Little Place Called Nicaragua.

small-wave-nicaragua / Nicaragua

Boom. Proof that when the creative crew goes on a surf trip down south, you get a whole lot more than the standard pics of a bunch o’ dude holding Victoria cans or the occasional sub-par sunset shot. Behold, some sizable shots from photographer Jorge Salas in the land of waves and honey (you’d be safe to assume we’re talking about Flor De Cana at this juncture), where empty breaks out-populate drivable roads….a little place called Nicaragua. Enjoy- you know these lucky mofos did. Then come back soon for more to come.
