Last weekend, I thought for some reason it wouldn’t be freezing to jump into the pacific without a wetsuit, in California, in the middle of winter. I was wrong. It was cold. But, it was totally worth it! After the initial shock of the frigid waters (and after my extremities went numb…) I sort of got used to the temperature and really enjoyed feeling free to swim around without any neoprene restricting my movements! I exited the ocean feeling fresh, renewed, and ready to face any challenges that come my way this year.
How? I found a happy place. (more…)
SeaMade: Bikini Review | L*Space A series on surf, cross training and lessons on all things salty by guest blogger, Madison
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.
Every spring, female surfers face a major challenge. No, not finding a lineup that isn’t blown out by 11am… but finding some bikinis that actually stay on while surfing- that still look, you know, cute! There are plenty of bikinis out there dubbed “Surf Swimwear,” but often times their fabric is stiff, their cuts are unflattering, and behold: they STILL fall off. Personally, I have found that for bikini bottoms, cheeky cut, seamless suits actually stay on, and flatter the form of any body type! Of course, for women who want to look awesome while remaining modest, there are plenty of seamless cut full coverage bottoms, which also flatter all shapes and sizes! As far as tops go, coverage can be key. Really, finding tops that stay on while surfing truly depends on body type. As a surfer on the bustier side, I have found that the more coverage and support, the better. Usually sports bra style tops stay on the best, but it is definitely not worth sacrificing style… Fortunately, there are some super rad brands that make some pretty rad tops that provide plenty of sporty support!
