It’s been nearly a week in “reality” since I have returned from the grand climbing tour of the American Southwest and I should be somewhat ashamed to admit that I haven’t done anything but surf. More appropriately, I’ve been rabidly hunting for surf. The few swells we  had were consistently inconsistent with most sets in the ankle to waist department, one rogue head high wave would roll through as a teaser on occasion. This allowed for plenty of chit chatting in the water.

One session, I rode with a friend from Odina Surf and got caught up on their environmentally friendly swimsuit line. Being a girl who surfs, I appreciate what this company has done with swimsuits – sexy and functional. They are coming out with some really cool color combinations, so keep your eyes peeled.

Between paddle exercises, I snapped some shots of my water buddies doing their thing and getting their shred on.
