Heartbreak Bikini

Heartbreak Bikini

This newest series is my document of the intimate surfing community around Eric, one of the main surfers in Sayulita (Mexico) where I spent part of my winters the last 10 years. The beach is controlled by local surfers on the threshold of their adulthood.
Eric's nickname is Bikini because of what he collected during his wild younger years. Tourist girls fall in love with him, but when they have to go back home, unwillingly he breaks their hearts. So I named him Heartbreak Bikini.
(Eric is now engaged).
