Sit and think about this for a little: When are you the happiest? My guess is that it’s when you are enjoying something that is simple. Coffee, ice cream, going for a walk, swimming, fishing, drinking coffee, I’ll even go out on a limb and say if you’re reading this, surfing might be on the list.

Suitable for Summer Style Post by Guest Blogger, Leah.

Although summer in California means warm sand and sunny skies, it doesn’t always guarantee the luxury of warm ocean water. So when I am planning on spending all day in the ocean I find that it’s a good idea to have something strong enough to keep me warm in the ocean whether I am snorkeling, surfing, or just floating out to sea, but also light enough to allow me to float, dive, and jump to my feet seamlessly. I love this wetsuit as it is not as restricting or nearly as hot as a full wetsuit. It’s perfect for quickly slipping into as you head out to the water. And as fall quickly approaches this suit will stick around through the warm fall days and help make the transition into winter water temperatures a little bit smoother.
