Now that we live in the best surfing town in Canada I think it's time I pick it up. I tried it once about 7 years ago when family from Europe was visiting and I can't say I enjoyed it all that much. All I really remember is freezing the whole time I was in the ocean and how absolutely dead tired I was when we were done. I'm not the most coordinated person around so I'm not surprised that a sport that revolves around me standing on a board wasn't for me. However, Dave managed to get me back in the water a few weeks ago and it was actually lots of fun. He gave me a quick lesson on the beach before heading into the water with me. I didn't go anywhere near over my head, I'm definitely not there yet! But as he pushed me into each wave I started to understand why people like it so much. Even if I don't want to go out each day like Dave does, I definitely want to keep trying. After all it is one of the best workouts I have ever done!
I drive by this SURF sign every day coming into Ucluelet and I always thought it would be a fun spot for a photo. While my photographer friend Dani was in town from Toronto she wanted to capture some photos of me in the 'golden light.' She helped style this entire look after going through my wardrobe. I bought this American Eagle jumpsuit last summer and can definitely imagine myself wearing this exact outfit to a music festival or date night later this summer. I love the idea of jumpsuits for summer because they're so low maintenance. You have your whole outfit right there and can accessorize it for the look you're going for. I have quite the collection of jumpsuits but this one is probably my favourite as it's both comfortable and flattering.
