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

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.

New Year of Adventures Style Post by Guest Blogger, Leah.

This New Year I decided to get out and do the things I love ALL the time. Traveling is my love and so within the first week of the New Year I already planned a way to get up and get out each month of 2014. Most of these adventures will require a plane, but what I always forget is that there are adventures waiting for me here and I can always explore right where I am. This weekend I went for a hike in the back bay during sunset and loved walking through nature on my own little adventure in my “backyard”. Wild adventures and crazy travels are no excuse to look sloppy, brands like Billabong make it easy for us adventuring type to dress the part. Vintage denim shorts, moccasins, and flower crowns are always a good idea. And with this fringe cardigan and dreamy tank, it got me wishing for some summer festivals. If you can’t travel far, try stepping out right where you are… and dress cool while you are at it.
