SeaMade: Bikini Review | Rip Curl

A good bikini is essential for fair weathered surf sessions. You can’t be troubled with checking your bikini over and over again to make sure it’s in place when the waves are pumping and the sun in shining. Even if you aren’t surfing and are just practicing your beached whale bronzing skills, worries of nip slips shouldn’t be concerning you.

Luckily, we live in a pretty rad place, so this doesn’t mean our only option for our daily workouts require a gym membership.

SeaMade: #CityWild 3rd Point Stories of native wanderings by blogger, Madison

bhbsurf_SeaMade_CityWild_3rdPoint
Exiting the canyon and making our way down Las Virgenes Road, I couldn’t help but reflect on how far we had come. From the campground to our makeshift trail to cliff jumps and stream paddles, we were all feeling really psyched and ready to jump in the ocean. The panoramic ocean view kept our minds off the heat mirages coming up off the pavement to lick our ankles.
