It’s a new month, and as such it’s time for a new flipbook from Surfing magazine–this one about groms in Nicaragua. “There are many trips for young surfers, but very few trips specifically for groms. Groms get shots now and then–they sneak onto a boat-trip, they have Nationals and a few specialty events. But rarely do they get a feature in a mag. Surfing associate photo editor Jimmy Wilson was aware of this cruel and unusual fact. He also knew there were a few groms in the 14-year-old range, who given the opportunity, would give a certain wave in Nicaragua some real hell. So he called some team managers, booked a place, basically arranged the entire trip, and the boys flew in from California, from Hawaii, from Barbados.” To see what happened, click the photo below to open the flipbook.
