Things I wish I’d known before travelling solo for surf as a woman

Friday, September 22, 2017

Hi there! Finally back after a very busy summer, made of (little) surf, (lots of) work, surprises, sun and joys :) I admit I missed writing here, but this summer I decided it was time to spend the spare time left just enjoying the season. I hope you're not mad at me!

To start this new season, I would like to introduce you to Amy from Unleash, a remote working experience for surfers with wanderlust.
Today she will share a few tips for female solo travelers I'm sure you'll find useful :) Trust her, she speaks from experience !

Why you should choose an organic sunscreen for your summer (and all-year-long)

Tuesday, July 25, 2017

Years back I talked to you about the risks of sun exposure (here - please don't judge my pictures eheh) and the damage UVA and UVB rays can have on our skin.

As surfers, we spend a lot of time under the sun. Its reflection on water and sand accentuates the danger of sun rays, which are responsible for the majority of sunburn and premature aging of the skin (wrinkles aaah!!!!), as well as of the big ugly C.

Luckily most of us use sunscreens regularly and protecting ourselves from all this has become a good daily habit. Also, with the green trend, many of us are opting for natural and organic options.

But what are the real reasons why we should prefer organic sunscreens?


A day at the beach with Zephyr Image + itw

Wednesday, June 28, 2017

Hello there!
Recently the weather and the waves have been so good here in South-Western France - a little European corner of paradise for the surfing addicted like me :)

A few weeks ago I had the chance to model for a photoshoot with the beautiful Cece from Zephyr Image, a two photographers' company based in Hawaii. They are a couple in business and couple in life!
It was super fun and interesting to spend the morning with Cece and chat about life in Hawaii and future goals and plans.

I wanted to know more about this couple who travels the world and turned their passion into their full-time job. This is another example of self-made entrepreneurs who rock it!

Have a read at their interview and at (some of) the pictures of the photoshoot in Biarritz.


Pollution // The hidden face of Maldives

Thursday, May 25, 2017

Hello there! Sorry, it's been a long time since last post, but I've been busy... ehm... surfing. But what is a surf blog without surfing, eh? 
Spring swells have been consistent lately and blessed us with some longboard clean peelers and offshore winds. What else could we ask for? 

But today I'm here to talk about some important issues: water and beach pollution and marine litter. Some time ago I was talking with a surfer friend of mine who had recently come back from a surf trip to Maldives. A dream come true! But as usual, often Paradise has a dark face, hidden under a layer of golden sparkles.

Looking at his pictures, I could understand that even in this dreamy place something was wrong: a beautiful tropical landscape was the background of piles and piles of trash that had been dumped on local beaches like no-one cared. But we do and today Andrea is here to show us the hidden face of Maldives and explain what we should do to prevent what's going on in there.
