The crew

Our Nicaragua Family

Playa Gigante Crew

Talking about Room to Roam without mentioning the heart and soul of our crew in Nicaragua just couldn't/wouldn't be right.  Our flagship location in the heart of Playa Gigante is home to some of the nearest and dearest friends we have ever come to know, and that you will ever come to know.  Some things cannot be described enough in words, and the feeling of "family" and "home" that you will feel instantly with this crew is one of them.

Professional Photographer and Videographer

Andres Weishaupt

The salt of the earth. Andres grew up in a tiny mountain town in Bavaria, Germany, where at 12 years old he became a pioneer of snowboarding during its initial days in Europe. Combining his early interest in photography and videography with the thrill of shredding the slopes, he became a self-taught photographer who excels at capturing the essence of the moment + the candid joy of the experience.

First surfing in France in his early twenties, it wasn’t long before he swapped his love for snowboarding to an unquenchable thirst for shredding the waves instead. Now residing in Encinitas,CA since 2015, Andres exemplifies living life always stoked with a smile, a positive attitude, and a genuine kindness and goodness that magnetically draws people to him. Catch him surfing all the inside lefts, buying used surfboards daily, and making friends wherever he goes.
