SeaMade: Bikini Review | Lolli Swim A series on surf, cross training and lessons on all things salty by guest blogger, Madison, with swimsuit review by Shelby Ling

Lolli Bikini Chris Grant
Did you know that looking super cute while surfing is one of the best distraction tactics in order to get waves from agro dudes? Well now you do. Should be common sense but hey, some of sladies (ladies who slide) are so focused on their surfing assets they won’t even consider tapping into their natural assets to score some waves. As much as surfing should do the talking and prove set wave worth, a little decorative accessory, like say- a bow on your butt, doesn’t hurt either.

Which is why I recruited my stylin’ friend, Shelby Ling, to test out this adorable Lolli Swim bikini. Upon first look at the suit she was a little shocked by the bow but I told her, “Just think of your beautifully bowed butt’s presence as a present to the lineup!” And that it was.

So we headed out with Chris Grant and friends for a fun Beacons evening sesh and the Lolli suit proved its worth as Shelby got all the best south peak waves of the evening. (more…)

Heading down to the beach the other afternoon, I decided to break out my new L*Space Wild & Free strappy bikini. I love the print and cut, which are both unique and stylish. Paired with some old school aloha shorts and camel hat , I probably looked ready to go on surfari with Wingnut and Patty O from Endless Summer. Beacons here in Leucadia is full of retro cats and this outfit fit right in with the best of them.

Photo Tip of the Week from photo contributor, Kelsey Finn…
Get inspiration from other photographers and artists. Use them as a source of inspiration, but do not imitate. If you limit yourself to recreating other works of art, you prevent the opportunity for your creative mind to grow.

SeaMade: Bikini Review | Rip Curl

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…)
