13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Rapa Nui surfer community

This picture was taken on Easter Island. I was walking in the town of Hanga Roa on Easter Island when the style of houses changes suddenly. I was told by a local that this area of town is the sufer community where all the passionate surfers live and share their love for the sport which is very popular on the island alongside diving. I found very interesting the contrasting colours of the house and the color of the sky.
