“Smoke and ash from field-clearing fires curled up here and there in the middle-distance like riptides; the air smelled like burning wood and diesel fumes, and reminded me of every Central American trip I’ve ever taken. It was comforting and also a bit exhilarating. I’ve scored way more good waves to that acrid smell than I have to plumeria and gardenia.”

- Matt Warshaw, Surfer, November 2004
