Creating the Best Surf Camp in Nicaragua

Living the Dream

   I created Liquid Sessions because I believe surfing is not a sport but a way of life. Its a lifestyle centered on being outside in nature living in Aloha, the presence of divine breath and the connection of land, water and people. Through the Aloha Spirit we find purpose and with purpose we find dedication. Through dedication the cosmos sing and heaven is made on earth. All great things are made through dedication like art, music, architecture, love, life and SURF.
