A Slice of Life | SWELLebration

sliceoflife
A wise young woman named Dorothy once said, “There’s no place like home.” Even though she was fictional, the Wizard of Oz is an AWESOME musical… and her words ring so very true. As the holidays approach, for college students, that means finals, finals, finals… and not much else. Even though the surf was firing, my head was buried in books all last week, and I could only look out the window and sigh, wishing I were in the waves. Fortunately, the stress came to an end, and the embrace of my home, the Pacific Ocean, greeted me in SWELLabration.

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.
