On my first trip to Nicaragua I met a man who shared just a few minutes of his time with me, but his words have stuck with me ever since. He came from my hometown in The Netherlands and left for a year of travels when he was 18. But now, about 30 years later, […]
Surf leggings … never heard of it before? It’s a trend that came over from America and is not about to dissapear anytime soon! They’re designed as a protection against nasty sun burns, but are functional on way more levels! No need to worry about losing your pants, without having to wear a steamy hot […]
Monday morning. I wake up in my favorite room, overlooking the ocean out of bed. Those couple days of rain has turned Nicaragua into a completely different world.

KiteSista wrote about Girls in Business, and met Sensi Graves: professional kite surfster and owner and designster of Sensi Graves Biknis. Although 3 years old, read Sensis thoughts on her business at the time it just started, knowing that […]
Imagine living in a country where no-one is ever in a hurry.. Could you do it? As I’m filling up a pot of water for my oatmeal breakfast, I’m thinking of the words of my friend: “You should give Surfbikini a face on instagram, share details of what makes it a Nicaraguan life”. Isn’t this […]
