Endless Prints Style Post by Guest Blogger, Leah.

As I’ve gotten to peek into all the summer collections headed our way, it’s obvious that we all are embracing prints a little more this season. From animal prints that remind you of African safaris, to vintage Hawaiian prints and colors that make you wish you had a mango and coconut in hand, there’s a print for everyone. And if fun prints don’t make you happy, then pom pom shorts will… but the combo of these two screams salty hair, sand everywhere, and no worries or a care. I wore mine with a crop top and a simple necklace. They are a perfect summer staple and a good pair of shorts to own and mix in with all the denim cutoffs I will be wearing this summer. Pom pom shorts and happy prints make me smile.

In the documentary ‘Beyond The Surface’ Ishita Malaviya, the first female surfer in India, joins five unique and talented women: Crystal Thornburg-Homcy, Liz Clark, Lauren Hill, Emi Koch, and Kate Baldwin. 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.

When I saw the film at the San Diego Surf Film Festival, I was extremely inspired and not one bit surprised the film won the award for best documentary of the entire fest. This is a story you don’t want to miss.
