Heather Finlayson is going through a transition period in her life. She’s in her last year of law school, just got out of a serious long-term relationship, and needed a break from real life to evaluate where she wants to go from here.
She had learned to surf as a kid, but hadn’t kept it up regularly. During her week in Nicaragua she fell back in love with surfing. She started in the whitewash on day 1, but by day 6 she was charging into some seriously big waves and coming up with a smile every time. Even after only horseback riding once in her life, she took off galloping down the beach and gained new perspective on life.
