SeaMade | Get Wet A series on surf, cross training and lessons on all things salty by guest blogger, Madison

You know those days where you have a lot on your plate but all you desire is getting in the water for a surf? But low and behold you show up and it’s flat and blown to smithereens. Suddenly your mind flashes back to your to-do list and excuses start flowing.  You just have to go for it though.

There has hardly been a time when I went surfing in less than ideal conditions and felt worse than before I went. No matter how tired you are or how many excuses you have, just getting in the water will recharge you and make you happy you went after all. Regardless of conditions, the ocean has a way of supporting us, so do what you gotta do, but don’t forget to get wet somewhere along the way.

I just got back from a trip that involved over 22 hours of in air flying time, each way. And what’s one of the first things I did when I got home? Started thinking of where I want to travel next.

There’s just something about traveling somewhere new, whether it’s within driving distance, or across the globe in a country where you don’t even write in the same alphabet, that is invigorating, exhilarating, inspiring, and educational. This is a combo that is quite addicting. In a great way. (more…)

New at SWELL: Issa De Mar

iss de mar one piece
We’re constantly on the search for a solid suit. One that doesn’t slip in the surf or stretch out after one season. One that mixes into our bikini wardrobe seamlessly and that follows through with the promise of “swim”-ability. Introducing THAT suit….the bikini version of the Little Black Dress from Issa de mar.
Born on the North Shore of Oahu, and raised in a tiger painted ice cream truck turned mobile marketplace, Issa de mar has finally made its way to SWELL. For designers Marissa Eveland and Melissa Jasniy, surfing, sewing and creativity is as much in their bones as there is salt in their hair. And needless to say (but we’ll say it anyways), their bikinis follow suit.

Pants On Fire Style Post by Guest Blogger, Leah.

Tie Dye Pants
We’ve all been caught buying exercise pants with no intent to actually exert any energy while wearing them. I’ll go all day wearing my yoga pants because they are comfortable, but can’t even remember the last time I stepped into a yoga studio, sad I know! Maybe it’s just me, but I find myself shopping in the exercise section for cute pants that I can wear out and be comfortable in all day. Well instead of continuing this habit and feeling guilty at the end of the day as if I am not letting my exercise pants live to their full potential – I can buy cute gypsy pants like these. Comfy and cool go together and these pants make life a lot easier. You can wear them with running shoes or pair them with awesome high tops. So save the yoga pants for outings that end with “namaste” and invest in a stylish pair of gypsy pants for your comfy days this summer!
