Under the Summer Sun


New REEF rashguard and bikini bottoms – c/o Swimspot, bracelets – c/o Poshlocket, sunnies – Charlotte Russe

A few years ago I saw a few people stand up paddle boarding in Hawaii. It was serene. The water was smooth and they were quietly rowing under the summer sun. I had to try it…

So FINALLY this summer in Hawaii I got the chance, and let’s just say, it’s NOT serene. It’s tough! My sister fell in 5 times 😛 And if there’s wind, it will make you work hard not to go past the buoys.

It’s a great workout though and super fun too 🙂

I love that Swimspot was able to send me this awesome rashguard and matching bottoms from Reef while I was still in Hawaii. Last minute gift 🙂 Rashguards are great for protecting you from the sun, keeping you a teensy bit warmer if the water is cold, and also keeping the sand on a boogie board or surf board from scratching up your tummy.

    I always see people stand up paddle boarding. It looks so fun! I would have never guessed it was hard!

    I love paddleboarding! The first time my family tried it, we got a lesson, and my brother and I both were able to do it but both my parents kept falling off haha! But once you're up, it's so fun, right?? I LOVED paddleboarding when i was in HI. i didnt look as good as you do though…that swimspot outfit ROCKS! :)Roryp.s. Did you try doubling up on a paddle board? That's VERY tricky but pretty fun once you get the hang of it. My brother and I were both able to stand for quite a while on the same board before both falling off! HAHAwww.WearAboutsBlog.com Amuse Me Boutique Giveaway !

    I love vacations with adventure! I'd love to try stand up paddle boarding someday!! It looks tough but fun! I'm sure a good work-out too. I love that top by the way. I need one like that for the beach..for sun protection and the chilliness sometimes. MemoriesOfTimesPast
