#SeaMade: A Dive Into ‘Beyond the Surface’

bts_2

Take a moment to think about India. What are some of your initial thoughts? Surfing pristine peelers and cultivating social change may not be the fist thoughts to come to mind but for Crystal Thornburg-Homcy and her filmmaker husband, Dave, that’s exactly what comes to mind.

In the documentary ‘Beyond The Surface’ Ishita Malaviya, the first female surfer in India, joins five unique and talented women: Crystal Thornburg-Homcy, Liz Clark, Lauren Hill, Emi Koch, and Kate Baldwin. They travel through Southern India exploring the ways surfing, yoga, and ecological creativity can bring hope to the people of India, and the rest of the world.

When I saw the film at the San Diego Surf Film Festival, I was extremely inspired and not one bit surprised the film won the award for best documentary of the entire fest. This is a story you don’t want to miss.

Day Trippin’ in Venice Style Post by Guest Blogger, Leah.

Venice is one of those places that no matter how many times you visit you will never get tired of it. There are always new street vendors, designers, wall art, and vegan cafes to explore. I visited this fun little city this past week and loved cruising around, eating good food, buying new clothes, and posing next to the cool signs and art. These Billabong pants are by far the coolest piece of clothing I have ever owned. They are perfect for a wild child like me and go great with a crop top… and yes stripes were meant to be paired with shiny pants. I got so many compliments on this outfit while running around Venice, I guess pants this cool were meant to be worn on the streets of the coolest city around.

diy-t-back-bikini-text
The best bikini top style, says me at least, will always be the classic triangle top. Depending on what you’re in the mood for, and your creativity level, it can be a bandeau, a wrap top, a cross front, a or a traditional shoulder strap top. You can change up your preferred ‘kini top style mid beach-sesh for a style made for bronzing or beach volleyball. For all-around beach frolicking, you can’t go wrong with the T-back tie.

Sayonara, Saguaro!
After a perfect 90 degree day in Palm Springs, full of bikinis and poolside Modelo buckets, the Bikini Truck is heading back home to restock for Coachella. A few road trip home thoughts:
1. Steep slides > normal slides
2. Any slide exit > No slide exit
3. The Billabong Surfside Bralette may be the best swim top ever created (so says almost every girl who has tried it on)
4. Sunscreen is your friend…
5. ….a friend who likes to say “I told you so” way to often.

Didn’t get a chance to visit us in Palm Springs? Come see us at Weekend 1 of Coachella! We’ll be posted up in front of the beautiful Saguaro once again.
