Local Surfers in Nicaragua

Here’s a nice video showing what life is like for local surfers at the Boom.

Filmmaker, Tim Davies describes this video as,

“A short film I made on a trip to Nicaragua, I was fortunate enough to make friends with the local surfers who were kind enough to tell me their story about where they live.”

Elton Sanchez is a local kid from Asseradores that has only been surfing a little over 5 years. With constant exposure to good waves and pro surfers, he is one of a handful of local kids in the area pulling stylish airs, trying flips, and getting super sick tubes.

The difference between Elton and some of the others is that he always has a smile on his face in the water. He’s watched his homebreak transform from a secret spot to a sought out surf destination but he doesn’t mind. He’s stoked no matter what.

He’s also an artist with prints, canvases, and murals available.
