La Juanita, El tunco

We started the year with an amazing Art-Surf residency thanks to Estacion Arte y Surf and the Comite de Desarrollo y Turismo Playa El Tunco, in the Pacific coast of La Libertad, we spend 3 days painting, surfing and enjoying the tropics. El tunco changed my life, I learned to surf here when I was in high school, this was my spot, and for me, painting a mural was a great way to thank the locals who share their beautiful space and waves, the mural honored Doña Juanita, the Pioneer of this town, the first person who offered a little "champita" with fresh food and a good smile to surfers and tourist. Five generations of her family can see her now as a local hero.
