Yes, yes it is. Think back on some of your best stories, memories, laughs, pictures…my bet, is the majority of them have something to do with travel. Whether it was a weekend road trip or three weeks in South Africa, getting out and seeing what this big ‘ol amazing world has to offer is one of the more amazing and exhilarating things you can do.
If your idea of travel happens to involve a board that incurs a rather hefty baggage fee, well then let’s say that type of travel hits the jackpot. Surf trips get you in the water, give you a ton of exercise, and are great for your mental and physical health. Yes, even if there is an obnoxious wave hog in your group. Or a boat of them following you wherever you go.
So, my theory is this: if travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer, well then, a surf trip is like winning the lotto.

I am always in need of the perfect pant. A pant that makes you feel as if you never stepped out of your pajamas. Ones that can withstand saltwater, wet sand, and an occasional spilled acai bowl. Pants that you can wear around the campfire or pull out of your gym bag when you forget your yoga pants. Pants that are best friends with your flower crowns and can be worn with just a simple bikini. RVCA did it right with these embroidered beach pants. With their comfortable fit and bohemian details, I love wearing these perfect pants just about everywhere.
