Craving a beach day? A whole beach holiday? An entire lifetime by the ocean? Us too. We’re all about surfing in winter (it’s a winter sport here in SA, BTW), so we’ve come up with a lust list of must-haves for those of us braving the waves in the chill, and those of you waiting for sunnier days.
RAspect Surf Salvation Sunscreen, R199, Zando
Even if you’re wanting to catch a tan, sunscreen is essential. Protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays not only helps prevent skin cancer but also keeps your skin bright and even-toned.
Roxy Fitness Crop Top, R250, Boardriders.co.za
A cute crop that keeps those tatas in one place while you’re being sloshed around in the ocean? Yes please! One more bonus: it doubles as a workout crop, so you can rock it at SWEAT 1000, too. You’re welcome.
FIVE Clouds Bikini, R370, Pollywog
Get more wear from your suit this summer in a reversible piece like this one from FIVE. Bonus: 50% of profits go towards African wildlife & marine conservation.
Pure Beginnings Hydrating Body Lotion, R109, Faithful To Nature
After a long day in the ocean, there’s nothing better than a hot shower and lathering up with a moisturising lotion. Your skin’s already pretty exfoliated from the salt water and a good lotion helps your body retain extra moisture, leaving it super soft.
Billabong East Coast Jacket, R950, Zando
Keep the stoke alive with this cute zip-up jacket, embroidered with palm trees. Pairs well with a sunny ‘tude.
