Surfing in Cornwall // Part 1

Friday, March 24, 2017

A few weeks ago I received an email from a super stoked fellow surfer girl. Emma Fraser-Bell from the blog Salty Skin Sandy Toes was excited to share her passion with me and I asked her to tell us here more about her surf life in Cornwall.

Cornwall is a South-Western area in the United Kingdom which creates a peninsula. Surrounded by the ocean, the Celtic Sea, its coasts are renowned in the UK for welcoming oceanic swells all year round.

I was so happy to learn more about Cornish waves and Emma put all her stokedness (this word actually exists, I checked!) in this tale of her English surf experience. It was quite long, so we decided to split it in three parts, all of them equally enjoyable!

Have a read and enjoy these amazing pictures.

How to pee in your wetsuit // 8 rules

Tuesday, March 7, 2017

Hey there! Today I would like to repost here one of my favorite articles from the blog Allons Rider. The original post is in French, but I thought you would have enjoyed it. So I translated and shared it here with you today.
(*UPDATE: I would like to add a mention to this article - which I found after writing this post - as a source of inspiration)

The topic could seem gross to many, but not to surfers. Peeing is commonplace in our community, especially in winter. So, have a read and stay warm!

The question no longer arises between surfers. Pissing yourself is a normal thing. And yes, on a winter morning after drinking a huge coffee, peeing in your wetsuit keeps you warm. 
There are, however, two types of discourse: surfers who openly admit to pee in their wetsuits (about 90%) and others who do that, but do not dare to admit it (9%).

Winter day at the beach

Wednesday, February 22, 2017

A few months ago my friends at Comptoir Des Cotonniers and Princesse Tam Tam spoilt me with some pieces of their new winter collection. As you can see, I'm all for basics and comfort and couldn't be more excited to be wearing such high quality clothing that would suit my everyday style as well.

I asked my friend Filippa Edghill to take some pictures at the collection and I thought of sharing them with you today.
It was a lovely sunny winter day. The beach was deserted and the landscape around us stunning. The perfect location for an adventurer's photoshooting.

The best surf books to read this winter

Wednesday, February 8, 2017

When it's so cold outside and surfing or simply have a walk by the beach is not possible, one of my favorite activities is snuggle on the couch and relax with a good reading.

Winter is the perfect time for cozy afternoons under the blanket or in front of the fireplace, with a cup of hot chocolate and your favorite book in a hand, don't you think?

I am a huge fan of fiction and easy-to-read books that are meant to relax and make you escape from your ordinary life. Add some surfing to this and I'm sold!
Today I'm sharing with you my favorite surf-fiction books that you can't do without during these long rainy winter afternoons.

So, put some warm socks on and choose yours!
