In love with a surf bikini
From way too much material to total freedom
I love surfing, but what the hell am I wearing?
"Six years ago I stood in Por tugal the first time on a surfboard. With a badly fitting wetsuit that made me shiver, and on top of it a faded and baggy Lycra from the surf school. Despite old booties, the sea urchins mistook the ball of my foot for a pin cushion. And yet: my love for surfing was inflamed! But I already knew then: As a summer child, I wanted to surf waves in warm water and do without a bulky wetsuit. To go surfing only in a bikini ... a dream! At least in theory. "
Tropical warm water ... and unwanted insights
“In the following years I was drawn to surfing in warmer areas - for example to Sri Lanka and Costa Rica. Although I only came to surf on vacation, I became a little more skilled with each surf session. There was only one thing that I learned very slowly about: how to best dress as a woman in the waves. My friend asked, aghast, “I've been surfing with board shorts and a rashguard for years. And everything is good. Why is it so complicated with you girls ?! ”Well, we surfer girls have curves that are harder to pack than an angular male body - and on which stretchy items of clothing are only too happy to flee in the wrong direction. Unwanted insights do not scratch a man or the line-up, but with girls everyone takes a closer look. I also tried countless board shorts and lycra shirts and kicked them all back in the bin. "
