#SeaMade: A Dive Into ‘Beyond the Surface’

bts_2

Take a moment to think about India. What are some of your initial thoughts? Surfing pristine peelers and cultivating social change may not be the fist thoughts to come to mind but for Crystal Thornburg-Homcy and her filmmaker husband, Dave, that’s exactly what comes to mind.

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.

DIY: How To Fix A Broken Sandal

how to fix a broken flip flop
If you’re a fan of the rubber flip flop, you know that blow-outs are inevitable at some point of said flip flop’s lifespan. And as experience tells us, major breaks rarely happen when you’re flopping around the house or on a nice soft-sand beach. Nope. They happen when it’s 100 degrees out and you have to traverse boulders before walking home on scorching asphalt…up hill, both ways. Which leaves us to think that anyone posting a quick fix for a broken flip flop with materials found at your house (but rarely in your purse/beach bag), may not be the rubber sandal-wearing DIYer they claim to be.
Read on for a few choices for the emergency DIY – for when you don’t have access to a shed full of materials… (more…)

Summer Cues Style Post by Guest Blogger, Leah.

Summer always gives us hints of its arrival. The sun peers through the windows earlier and sticks around long into the evening. The water becomes bearable and little bugs you forgot about start reappearing. Strawberry stands start popping up, watermelons are sweeter, schoolwork decreases while airfares rise. I pack away my pants and sweaters, leaving only bikinis in my drawers. If there was ever a hint of summer in my wardrobe it would be the sudden obsession and overabundance of rompers and overalls. This romper is one of the many you will find in my closet and see me wearing all throughout the summer. Perfect for a skate to the beach, coverup over your bikini, and can be worn at all the summer festivals and concerts you’ll find yourself attending. I like to think that summer is a romper’s best friend.
