Chacahua is an Afro-indigenous island community just off the coast of Oaxaca, Mexico. The island is protected as a Marine National Park, surrounded by mangroves. The main source of income for local families is either tourism, artisanal fishing, or gathering pebbles from the shoreline to sell for construction.

 

Coast 2 Coast supplied participants with GoPro cameras to view and record one of their daily activities from a different perspective, light, and angle. Every afternoon after school, a group of local kids jump into the sea for a surf session with their friends. With GoPros in hand, kids documented fishermen, their friends, and the fun of their time in the ocean.
