For those of you using an underwater housing, ever have trouble with water spots? to get that perfect half-in-half-out photo, without water spots, the best thing to do is use your spit! It sounds gross…but it works! Spit on the housing’s port and give it a good lick to distribute the spit!

SeaMade: Surf Cross-Training Circuit Workout

Wednesday was a tragic day for summery California beach fanatics like myself. Rain, wind, and lightning (oh my!) marked the first day of fall in my books. The surf was blown to shreds, and sorry, I’m not pushing the level of surfing that makes me like onshores in order to boost high and mighty. So although a day of curling up on the couch in my favorite loungewear with a steamy hot mug of cocoa sounded so nice, I decided to pound some coffee and get my butt in action. After all, it’s supposed to be a toasty 75 with combo swell for the next week…always gotta be prepared. Read on for the workout…
