Teaching, Waves, and the Weeks to Come.
In the last week I have gotten the wave of my life. Not once but multiple times. But I diverge from that. I have been having the time of my life while I am not working. Some things that I would never imagine doing or people I would never really think of spending time with, I have done.
This last swell was good, really good. Some double overhead barrels. Barrels spitting. And the Ultimate VISIONS.
Top Left is my buddy JJ getting a sick one. On this day we surfed for a couple hours then got out of the water only to paddle right back out because it started to turn on. I paddled out got a sick barrel that spit me out and went straight in. Turned around and JJ was on a bomb so I ran to the house grabbed my camera and shot this photo his next wave. I met JJ through a mutual friend of my brothers. He is down here for another two weeks with another new friend of mine Zack. On my off time we have been having a blast trading tubes and splitting peaks. The other are just a couple photos for the viewing check the Nica page for larger versions.
Below is a video of the waves for a short hour on the morning of June 2nd. The middle part of the video is JJ with three sick ones.
Today I went with JJ and Zack to the Local school and helped teach English to the local Nica Kids. It was a really great experience and one I will definitely remember. We were pleased to be invited back and we will be helping teach english Monday(Lunes)-Thursday(Jueves) for the next two weeks. It was honestly so much fun. These kids are so stoked on learning and having a higher determination than most kids I have talked to in the states. Education is a luxury and should not be thought of as such a mundane exercise. I can not wait to go back.
