A good bikini is essential for fair weathered surf sessions. You can’t be troubled with checking your bikini over and over again to make sure it’s in place when the waves are pumping and the sun in shining. Even if you aren’t surfing and are just practicing your beached whale bronzing skills, worries of nip slips shouldn’t be concerning you. So the saying goes “out of sight, out of mind”, as should your nips.

As a busty petite slady (that’s lady-slider, Lauren Hill’s recent contribution to the surfing lexicon), tops with good support and coverage that don’t look like a bra are essential to my bikini arsenal. Of course, I have tops that are less practical but a good surf top is like gold in my wardrobe. (more…)

Photo Tip of the Week from photo contributor, Kelsey Finn…
Opening your eyes underwater can be painful to most. But closing your eyes underwater, and looking elegant while doing so is difficult. Throw on a mask! Although I don’t mind a model wearing snorkel gear underwater, some find it unappealing. If you feel that way, have your model wear sunglasses underwater to hide those squinting eyes and frowns!

With summer almost here, it’s about time to find a pair of denim cutoffs that you love and that fit you perfectly. I love these Element shorts because not only are they super flattering, but they have little unique flower details on the front.  I brought mine to the beach to slip on over my one piece. I’d also pair them with some converse high tops and a crop top – perfect for this crazy hot weather. When you’re always hopping from beach to beach like me, a fun pair of denim shorts is a necessity!
