“The ocean is the one place I can go to, for peace.” Did you know that surfing brings an explosion of feel-good chemicals in your brain? It starts with the anticipation. Before every new surf session our brain start producing Dopamine. That’s what makes surfing so addictive. Giving your brain another activity to crave for, helps to recover from heavy addictions, like opioids addiction.

today April 16th, the governor of Nayarit inaugurated Sayulita’s new Sewage Treatment Plant and Emissor. This is great news and even bigger news is that the beach of Sayulita has already been declared safe for swimming.
