A Slice Of Life | From Surf’s Up to Turn Up

tallow-bikini
Usually, when I refer to a versatile bikini top, I mean that it can be worn surfing, laying by the pool, or as a cute bralette… but this MINKPINK tank bikini top takes it to a whole new level: It doubles as a going out crop top! It is supportive enough for any beach activities, and covers enough to be worn alone or under a sweater or kimono when going out. The funky pattern will have you standing out in a sea of little black dresses, and the mesh back and inserts add edge. Take your style from beach to street – from surf’s up to turn up!

A Slice Of Life | The Ladies of the UCSB Surf Team

ucsb-surf
As I have mentioned before, I am in my second year at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Here at UCSB, we take our surfing pretty seriously. Our surf team competes in the National Scholastic Surfing Association, and over the years we have accumulated 14 national titles! Our team is filled with some amazingly talented and intellectual individuals, and together we have some really fun times, be it surfing, hanging out, or studying in the library (well, as fun as studying can be). While both the boys and the girls on the team are totally rad, we couldn’t convince the dudes to pose in little bikinis… so today, I wanted to introduce you to some of my best friends: the sunkissed ladies of the UCSB Surf Team.

A Slice Of Life | Suits for the Season

crop-wetsuit-jacket
Autumn is a confusing time for surfers. I mean, in summer you trunk it, in winter you’ve got your fullsuit/ steamer situation, and of course they’re called spring suits for a reason. Does that mean in fall, you just put on your spring suit, and call it a fall suit? This is one of life’s great mysteries. While the temperatures seem to allow for this, fall suit just doesn’t have quite the same ring to it. So maybe, we can think of a different name… lets go with “transitional suit.” Transitional wetsuits can come in different shapes and thicknesses, but usually involve 2mm neoprene, instead of a fullsuit’s typical 3/2, or a steamer’s 4/3 (sometimes 5/4/3… for extra frigid winters.. yikes). My favorite way to wear 2mm neoprene is in the form of separates! For example, Billabong Women’s cropped jacket paired with their wetsuit leggings makes for a fun and unique wetsuit “outfit.” These pieces have been keeping me nice and warm, but not too hot, while the water is starting to cool down.
