I had the chance to surf Playa Hermosa at sunset with School of the World instructor Carlos. Playa Hermosa is beautiful: black sand beaches, glassy clear blue water with a temperature of 80 degrees, lush green palm trees, and an occasional army of pelicans flying overhead. Carlos is an amazing shortboarder and gave me great one on one lessons on improving my surfing skills. Since I already have some experience surfing, he taught me how to spot the perfect wave and when to pop up on my board while reading the tide and understanding the ocean.

I have to admit though, the best part was testing out some of my new favorite bikini purchases for the season! So girls, if you are planning to surf some place tropical, I recommend first hand these bikini options that stay in place but that are still feminine and stylish.
