Nestor Tello had a dream of creating a surf culture in Colombia like those found in Australia, Peru and Brazil. He bought a second-hand board, taught himself how to surf and now teaches the kids in his village because, as Nestor puts it, "surfing offers good values for life."
In this mini video series we meet with some persons from the Colombian Chocó region who live on the Pacific Coast, south of Nuquí.
In Chocó exists a big contrast between the wealth of natural resources and the few opportunities of what we call development for its population.
Same as in many rural areas in Colombia, corruption and violence are reality. Nevertheless, the visitor experiences an impression of freedom, tranquility and solidarity. Here, you (re-)connect with nature – you almost dissolve into it – and you feed on the philosophy and dreams of the Chocó people.
