Carly Hougen is the artist behind these stunning photos from Nicaragua. She’s a lovely soul inside and out, with a knack for photographing life in a raw, real way that makes you feel like you’re part of her adventures, part of her happiness. She’s a natural talent whose creativity was fueled by her midwest upbringing with, “three gnarly brothers, a cowboy dad, and an artist mamma.”
Carly and her friends headed down to San Juan Del Sur to surf the days away in the hot sun of Nicaragua. Her photos leave you wishing you were part of the effortlessly cool surf culture that rides waves around the world. This is probably the closest we’ll ever get to being so rad. Soak it in.
