Isaac is from a small fishing village in Nicaragua and works with his friend Elton fixing surfboards for guests at a resort in the area. Occasionally, when visiting surfers break a board, they leave the board for the guys to keep.

Very rarely are they given boards that are in tact.

Isaac and Elton put these boards back together, making them their own and ride them until they break again. This is how they continue to surf and improve their surfing.

Shot handheld with a Canon 7D and a Nikon prime 50 mm lens.
