Seea in Sayulita: Point Break

We may have come to Sayulita for the Mexi LogFest contest, but what we remember the most are the down days off — scrambling barefoot through the jungle, the salty hot wind as we zipped on a panga boat to find point breaks in the nooks and crannies of the vast Mexico coastline, and the waves. Oh, the perfect rights all to ourselves until the sun sank into the horizon.

The Seeababes rolled 10+ deep with friends to the Festival Sayulita in the Riviera Nayarit area of Mexico, held Jan 14-18, 2015. Rules stated: “Judging is based on traditional longboarding with heavy emphasis on style."

When we weren't roasting on the beach to cheer on our frends during the contest — Congrats to Seeababes Hallie Rohr and Mele Saili who placed third and fourth, respectively in the Women’s Division! — we filling up on glassy point break stoke. Hop on the panga boat with us the rhythm of dark water flowing into whitewash curls.
