Local surf coach goes viral and hopes to shine light on her filmmaking dreams! Watch the viral video here. Full name: Risa Mara Machuca Where are you from and how did you arrive in Sayulita?The first time I visited Sayulita was back in 98’. It was a pit stop on the way to Puerto Vallarta while hitchhiking with some girlfriends from Canada and New York. They were visiting me in San Blas, where my family is from. The entrance to Sayulita always caught my attention and we discovered so much magic here…back when the fishermen and locals outnumbered foreigners. When I…

Hi! Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?I grew up in a big family and as a child I always found myself at the piano leading people in song and laughter.  I have fond memories of playing music at old folks’ homes and feeling the tears of nostalgia and joy elicited by the songs.  I remember the first time I played a pipe organ at the Polish Catholic Cathedral in Delaware where I grew up, those notes echoing off the high ceilings and filling me with awe at the beauty and power of the sounds.  These early experiences…

Once upon a time, not so long ago, in a small town named after another small town (Sayula), lived a small girl foreign to the land. This little girl spent her days running around barefoot, swimming in the ocean and exploring the surrounding jungle. Sometimes she was chased by a Guacamaya (a big beautiful Macaw, this one was red, blue and green) on her way to school, and she would flee, running as quick as her little legs could carry her. The source of the Guacamayas anger was her jealousy of the little girls friendship with its owner, another kid…
