SeaMade: Surfing 101 | Longboard Paddling Technique

unflitered-by billy watts645
A longboard isn’t called a log for nothing. Even maneuvering a heavily glassed 9’0 noserider makes a petite little lady like myself feel like I’m coasting on a 300 year old redwood tree. For how fun they are to ride, they sure can be challenging in terms of getting around, especially getting around waves bigger than 4-5 feet. Save yourself the frustration of getting caught on the inside with a few simple paddling techniques… (more…)

I love overalls, I could live and sleep in overalls. There is nothing better than when I find a pair of great overalls that look even better on me than they do hanging on the rack. It doesn’t matter which brand, where they came from, or how old they are, they just have to fit me like they were designed just for me. Not only are these overalls the perfect fit, but they are jungle print. If you know me, I do not wander far from loud, fun prints. So my favorite print combined with my deep love for overalls, makes for a match made in outfit heaven. The great thing about overalls is, unlike dresses and skirts, you can jump and run around in them. These overalls brought out my inner tomboy. I completed my laid back look with a matching backwards hat and dreams of climbing around a lush jungle. Tie on some converse and you’ll be back in grade school, only this time you’ll be cooler. If you really want to get a little wild, I sometimes pair these overalls with a leopard coat. While that may sound too wild for some, my excuse has been that both prints are “jungle theme” that counts for something right?

Whether you’re learning to surf or are a total veteran, there is nothing quite as good as having a lineup to yourself. The only way to become a better surfer is time surfing- literally standing up and riding a wave. Paddling around to scrounge for waves will make you stronger but time on your feet is what you really need to improve your surf skills. (more…)

This Just In: New Billabong Surf Capsule

billabong-surf-capsule-crop
Once again, the design team at Billabong has struck the perfect balance between traditional, “scrumptious baby seal” black neoprene, and a “maybe if I tie it super tight it won’t fall off” bikini. Introducing the Spring ’14 Billabong Surf Capsule Collection. The retro-inspired line features Billabong’s tech neoprene in bold color blocks, south of the boarder stripes, and a neon safari print mix. Combine the cheeky cuts with Summer-in-January weather*, and you’ll most-certainly be able to look past the 60 degree water temps towards long beach days ahead.

*To the rest of the Northern Hemisphere, we’re sorry to rub sweet Pacific Ocean salt in the wound.
