Estamos en Ecuador! We have arrived in Ecuador for the 2014 ISA World Junior Championships. It’s such an awesome contest as the whole world sends their top junior surfers to compete. I have met so many amazing surfers from Australia, Brazil, Great Britain and so many other cool countries. I’ll have some fun interviews with these surfers next week!

Photo Tip of the Week from photo contributor, Kelsey Finn…
A tip for the underwater models out there. To be truly successful, especially when having your portrait taken underwater, you need to hold your breath – without looking like you’re holding your breath. The best way to achieve this is by practicing holding your breath and get comfortable being underwater!

A Slice of Life | New Guest Blog Series from Stephanie Schechter

Stephanie-1
Meet SWELL’s newest guest blogger…Stephanie Schechter! You might know her as the “Watermelon Girl” if you’re social media savvy, but there’s more to this San Diego-raised water baby than her fruit-themed Insta-personality.
So why do we thing she’s so…SWELL?
* She’s a true beach baby. She began competing and picking up sponsors while most of us were still picking up Lego pieces.
* The girl has style, by sea and by land!
* She had us at “Watermelon.”

Look forward to travels, cross-steps, and, of course, all things watermelon, with Stephanie on her new SWELL Series, Slice of Life….
