Quiverito Surf Shop in Sayulita is a mindfully curated boutique surf shop located on Calle Marlin, just meters from Sayulita's main beach & break. A laid-back and charming shop, it is a classic "Mom & Pop" type of surf shop, proudly selling handmade, hand picked items, and often playing vintage vinyl on their record player. Quiverito Surf Shop is an essential shop to visit while exploring Sayulita or looking for surf lessons and rentals. Owners Brian and Cristina tell me more about their shop and what makes it unique, in a surf town saturated with places for surf lessons and rentals.

If you take beach walks in Sayulita, you might encounter dogs wearing strikingly colorful beaded collars as they run, wrestle, and swim in the ocean. You might also see people around town wearing similarly styled beaded bracelets, and designers working on the streets creating these pieces. These works of art are hand crafted by members of the native Huichol tribe. One Sayulita couple recently launched an online store called Boho Mango to help support local Huichol artisans by marketing these beautiful collars and bracelets to the world.

Today I was craving a nice light pizza for lunch that was not too doughy. In this hot Sayulita weather, I often want a meal that will fill me up while still feeling light and fresh. Do you feel that way sometimes? For the longest time I have been trying out different pizza crust options; I have made the Napoli style organic unbleached wheat flour crust, and it is my actual favorite, but I am trying to stay away from carbohydrates as much as I can. I have also tried the keto fat-head crust; I personally like it, but my husband finds it too rich & heavy. Then, for awhile I made cauliflower crust pizzas, but they are so labor intensive. Thus, last week I came across a recipe for a Crispy Cheese Crust. I tried it and was pretty impressed with the results. This recipe is the perfect option for when you are in the mood for a very fast, crispy crust!

This month’s recipient of Sayulita Life’s $5,000 donation is Ser Su Voz, Sayulita A.C. (Association Civil). Ser Su Voz Sayulita A.C. is a local community group which was formally created this past March of 2019. The initial founder of the group is Sayulita local and passionate environmental advocate, Tracie Willis, but the group includes five other members: Erik Luna, Luisa Viteri, Candelario Salaz, Cesar Gonzalez, and Enrique Michel. Along with assisting in local causes related to helping preserve and protect our environment, Ser Su Voz has created several initiatives for our community and in helping our eco-systems. Ser Su Voz received an official new office last month, in July of 2019. This is a huge step forward for the group in order to better function and manage as a proper association, however the office was in desperate need of supplies and materials in order to be proficient on a professional level. The $5,000 donation from Sayulita Life will go directly toward purchasing office supplies and materials to help the group to attain their goal of efficiency and to help them run their association more smoothly.
