Last week, Nowak was fortunate to bring the Faces of Surfing collection to Nicaragua for the International Surfing Associations World Masters Championship. Nowak was greeted by a crowd of ecstatic nations that were proud to be apart of the 26 countries and 150 athletes competing. During Nowak's five day stay at Mark & Dave's in the stunning community of Hacienda Iguana at Playa de Colorados she was engulfed by the landscape and lifestyle of surfing, yoga, and meditation. During her visit Nowak appeared on Nica TV to discuss her Faces of Surfing project, and to give light on being a female within the surfing community. Staying with the United States team, she cheered them onto winning the silver medal, beat out by the fierce Hawaiian team who finished first.

Nicaragua hosted the fifth edition of the ISA World Masters, where surfers aged 35 and over came from all over the world to broadcast their talents and bring recognition to ISA's motto " For a Better Surfing Future." ISA's intention is to use surfing as a vehicle to bring people, countries and cultures together. During the closing ceremony ISA's President Fernando Aquerre explains, "Nicaragua proved to be the ideal partner for a successful event. In this, their first surfing world championship, the organizers provided an impeccable event from all operational points of view, coupled with the warmth of its people, on top of that, we experienced some of the best waves in the ISA's history, with 24-hour offshore winds during the duration of the event. This was an A-class event from all points of view"
