Does it get any better then this? Three friends — Finn McGill, Eithan Osborne and Kei Kobayashi — cruising bikes through the jungle to get to perfect surf.
The check trail sure got a lot of wear and tear from our crew. On days like this, the wear and tear increases exponentially.
I was really impressed with Kei Kobayashi’s air game — he stuck this thing without much of a problem.
Kellen Ellison was in rhythm this session. No matter where he sat, the sets kept funneling right into him. Probably doesn't hurt that he surf the best beachbreaks in California on a daily basis.
The Boys decided to enter the ring for a closer view. They all second guessed that decision after watching the bull rider get kicked in the head.
I think this guy needed to get laid and he figured that if he rode a bull backwards, it was sure thing. Hopefully it worked out for him.
Steffi Kerson is going to be a force in the future of women’s surfing. She has a lot of power on the rail and is definitely not afraid of the tube.

A few months back, I got a call from my favorite grom Eithan Osborne about doing a trip to Nicaragua with Steffi Kerson and Kellen Ellison. As the trip got closer, we ended up adding Finn Mc Gill and Kei Kobayashi to the roster. It was the first grom trip I’ve done in a very long time. I was a bit skeptical at first, but I must say that I’ve never laughed so hard in my entire life. The trip was full of pranks, shit talking and general shenanigans. There were waves every single day for a 10 day stint, and offshore winds to greet those waves. All in all, we couldn’t have asked for anything better — I really think I could do this trip ten times over and it would never get old. —Seth de Roulet
