There’s nothing like spending the holiday season in Hawaii. The streets are filled with lights, wreaths, and lots of palm trees. It’s sunny with not a cloud in the sky and if you’re lucky you’ll run into the Hawaiian Santa Claus walking around in flip flops and a Hawaiian print Santa suit. While doing a little Christmas shopping in town I wore this beautiful Billabong set. The red colors reminded me of Christmas and made me wanna do a little Christmas dance. (more…)
To California surfers, winter means northwest swells and less-crowded lineups! Of course, even in the land of sunshine, the temperatures drop… sometimes even below 70 degrees. Frightening, I know.
Fortunately, a steaming cup of joe, a cozy pair of UGG boots and a beanie, plus the perfect surf check jacket can protect you from the horrors of the slightly below average weather. Just in case perfect waves aren’t enough motivation to get you out of bed and to the beach in the mornings.
As most of you know, I live for the long days in the sun, endless swims through the salt water, sandy feet, and living out of a bikini. During the winter these happy sunny days seem to dwindle, but lucky for us we can hop on a plane and escape the winter cold even if just for a few days. Taking a break to catch some much needed sun is always good for the soul. (more…)
Autumn is a confusing time for surfers. I mean, in summer you trunk it, in winter you’ve got your fullsuit/ steamer situation, and of course they’re called spring suits for a reason. Does that mean in fall, you just put on your spring suit, and call it a fall suit? This is one of life’s great mysteries. While the temperatures seem to allow for this, fall suit just doesn’t have quite the same ring to it. So maybe, we can think of a different name… lets go with “transitional suit.” Transitional wetsuits can come in different shapes and thicknesses, but usually involve 2mm neoprene, instead of a fullsuit’s typical 3/2, or a steamer’s 4/3 (sometimes 5/4/3… for extra frigid winters.. yikes). My favorite way to wear 2mm neoprene is in the form of separates! For example, Billabong Women’s cropped jacket paired with their wetsuit leggings makes for a fun and unique wetsuit “outfit.” These pieces have been keeping me nice and warm, but not too hot, while the water is starting to cool down.
