Heading down to the beach the other afternoon, I decided to break out my new L*Space Wild & Free strappy bikini. I love the print and cut, which are both unique and stylish. Paired with some old school aloha shorts and camel hat , I probably looked ready to go on surfari with Wingnut and Patty O from Endless Summer.

They travel through Southern India exploring the ways surfing, yoga, and ecological creativity can bring hope to the people of India, and the rest of the world.
