Although summer in California means warm sand and sunny skies, it doesn’t always guarantee the luxury of warm ocean water. So when I am planning on spending all day in the ocean I find that it’s a good idea to have something strong enough to keep me warm in the ocean whether I am snorkeling, surfing, or just floating out to sea, but also light enough to allow me to float, dive, and jump to my feet seamlessly. I love this wetsuit as it is not as restricting or nearly as hot as a full wetsuit. It’s perfect for quickly slipping into as you head out to the water. And as fall quickly approaches this suit will stick around through the warm fall days and help make the transition into winter water temperatures a little bit smoother.

For how fun they are to ride, they sure can be challenging in terms of getting around, especially getting around waves bigger than 4-5 feet. Save yourself the frustration of getting caught on the inside with a few simple paddling techniques… (more…)

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…)
