SeaMade: Get Up, Get Out A series on surf, cross training and lessons on all things salty by guest blogger, Madison

The other morning I woke up at the witching hour of 3:15am. Even my usual playlist of Ludovico Einaudi couldn’t lure me back into dreamland. So by four I was up and brewing a mean grind of french pressed coffee and contemplating what to do next.

Being that it will still pitch black out, I got into some creative projects, like making collaged cards for friends & family. The last thing you want to do when you wake up early is get sucked into the interwebs of your computer. Next thing you know it’s 10am and all you’ve done is lay around, Pinteresting, tumblring, and online shopping…not that those aren’t fun but you can’t go wrong by starting your day with some movement.

So as my mug was drained and my caffeine buzz settled in, I hit the road to check out Encinitas by dawn. (more…)

SeaMade | 5 Reasons Not To Fear Sharks

madison-olson-jaws-chris-grant-jettygirl-1961
People ask me all the time, “Aren’t you afraid of being eaten by a shark?” Well, as a surfer and frequent ocean frolicker, my chances of encountering sharks are pretty high. But no, I’m not afraid. Sure the thought of having my body ripped to shreds by the pearly knives of a great white disturb me, but it’s not a thought that frequently crosses my mind. If I were to constantly dwell on the thought of being attacked, I probably wouldn’t get in the ocean as much and that definitely would bum me out. Need some reasons to ditch the shark fear? Read on for my top 5…

SeaMade: Dog Beach Work Out

dog-workout-1
Working out with a friend can keep you motivated and hold you accountable on your path to reaching your fitness goals. But what do you do when you can’t find a consistent work out buddy? Find a dog. Doesn’t even have to be your dog. You can borrow aforementioned noncommittal workout buddy’s dog and take them for a workout.

The right breeds of dogs (for instance a beautiful golden retriever named Marilyn) can be the best workout companions, especially since exercise is a necessity in their lives. So find a furry friend, preferably one that likes fetching, and head to your nearest beach or park to do some cross-training. Read on for the Dog Beach Workout…

SeaMade: Bikini Review | Lolli Swim A series on surf, cross training and lessons on all things salty by guest blogger, Madison, with swimsuit review by Shelby Ling

Lolli Bikini Chris Grant
Did you know that looking super cute while surfing is one of the best distraction tactics in order to get waves from agro dudes? Well now you do. Should be common sense but hey, some of sladies (ladies who slide) are so focused on their surfing assets they won’t even consider tapping into their natural assets to score some waves. As much as surfing should do the talking and prove set wave worth, a little decorative accessory, like say- a bow on your butt, doesn’t hurt either.

Which is why I recruited my stylin’ friend, Shelby Ling, to test out this adorable Lolli Swim bikini. Upon first look at the suit she was a little shocked by the bow but I told her, “Just think of your beautifully bowed butt’s presence as a present to the lineup!” And that it was.

So we headed out with Chris Grant and friends for a fun Beacons evening sesh and the Lolli suit proved its worth as Shelby got all the best south peak waves of the evening. (more…)
