Libby, the owner and head designer of Indah Clothing, grew up watching her mom sew clothing for her family, she spent years traveling around the world, and is now settled in Bali with her sweet family…it is pretty clear why she designs such amazing pieces! Inspired by her travels and family, and her beautiful home in Bali, Libby is constantly creating the most sexy and simple clothing with little hints of bohemian vibes in each piece. Enjoy this lovely conversation with the beautiful and inspiring designer and the fun snapshots of her life, designs, and the sights of Bali.

Roark has surfaced again. A package with postcard and a few Bintangs showed up at our Swell office last week. Correspondence reads: “The trip was long. It was religious without following, sacrificial without loss, and by the time it was over, it was 8-10 feet again.”
It appears Roark has been meandering throughout Indonesia, breaking through the disorientation of Kuta, exploring outer atolls, foreign states of mind and frivolous amounts of Bintang. The Volume 4 “Bali High” collection features sweaty, jungle-tarnished garments and new trinkets that could only fall out of Roark’s pocket.
Dive into the season’s first shipment of Roark’s new styles.
While practicing for the third stop on the 2012 World Championship Tour, Kelly Slater’s right heel suffered a 1/2 inch deep cut from a coral reef. The world’s top ranked surfer then dropped out of the Billabong Rio Pro noting, “I can pull into the tube but that’s about it. I can’t turn with the stitches in my heel, and with the small waves (in Rio de Janeiro). It’s probably going to turn into an air contest.”
The coral reef that punctured his right heel embedded small pieces, infecting the area and requiring additional procedures. Last week commentators at the Nike Lowers Pro marveled at Kelly’s (40) lack of injuries during his 22 years on tour, but this injury will not affect, nor was caused by the longevity of his career. Coral lacerations and resulting infections are a very common surf injury in the South Pacific. Last year, 19th ranked Matt Wilkinson was sidelined with Golden Staph Infections after bouncing off the reef at the Billabong Pro Tahiti.
Kelly visited Bali with girlfriend Kalani Miller, where her swimwear company, Mikoh Swim is headquartered. While surfing the beaches around Bali, Slater tweeted about the polluted state of the beach posing major health risks to beach-goers.
Damien “Dooma” Fahrenfort snapped this picture of a wheelchair-bound Kelly leaving the Indonesia Airport wearing his favorite new travel gear from VSTR Clothing. Slater is back surfing (at right, barreled in Duranbah) and expects to recover in time for Tavarua, continuing his 12th world title campaign.
