SeaMade: Dog Beach Work Out

Working out with a friend can keep you motivated and hold you accountable on your path to reaching your fitness goals. But what do you do when you can’t find a consistent work out buddy? Find a dog. Doesn’t even have to be your dog. You can borrow aforementioned noncommittal workout buddy’s dog and take them for a workout.

The right breeds of dogs (for instance a beautiful golden retriever named Marilyn) can be the best workout companions, especially since exercise is a necessity in their lives. So find a furry friend, preferably one that likes fetching, and head to your nearest beach or park to do some cross-training. Read on for the Dog Beach Workout…

SeaMade: Bikini Review | Lolli Swim A series on surf, cross training and lessons on all things salty by guest blogger, Madison, with swimsuit review by Shelby Ling

Lolli Bikini Chris Grant

Should be common sense but hey, some of sladies (ladies who slide) are so focused on their surfing assets they won’t even consider tapping into their natural assets to score some waves. As much as surfing should do the talking and prove set wave worth, a little decorative accessory, like say- a bow on your butt, doesn’t hurt either.

Which is why I recruited my stylin’ friend, Shelby Ling, to test out this adorable Lolli Swim bikini. Upon first look at the suit she was a little shocked by the bow but I told her, “Just think of your beautifully bowed butt’s presence as a present to the lineup!” And that it was.

So we headed out with Chris Grant and friends for a fun Beacons evening sesh and the Lolli suit proved its worth as Shelby got all the best south peak waves of the evening. (more…)
