Surfing and the live easy lifestyle is in Rose Machado's DNA and she is making big waves in the modeling industry. Last month we shot our most recent collection in her home city of Cardiff, CA. She is the daughter of surfing icon Rob Machado of HBO's recent documentary Momentum Generation and the new face of Vaya's "Under The Sun" Collection. We were beyond stoked to have her headline our most recent campaign! Here is our latest Q&A with #VayaGirl Rose Machado.
