Surf Careers: Luna Scherpenisse, owner of Mermaid Private Boat Tours in Moorea.

We are back with a new edition of the 'Surf Careers' Blog Series. This one is a particularly exciting one for me, as I used to live and work in French Polynesia before setting up Seafoam. So, when I came across Dutch beauty Luna Scherpenisse on Instagram, I was in awe of what she has achieved already at such a young age in such a beautiful place. Building a 'career' we will all envy...  Read on and you are likely to consider selling up and moving.    Hi Luna, can you tell us a little more about yourself and where you are from? I’m 24 years old and born & raised in Amsterdam in the Netherlands. I have been living on Moorea,...

Surf Destinations: Barbados by Sofie Forton

While surf travel might still be restricted to certain destinations, it doesn't mean we can't start planning or dreaming away to our next destination. The latest entry in our 'Surf Destinations' journal is written by Sofie Forton who visited Barbados last winter. Get ready to start searching for flights! :)  The destination of our trip to Barbados was easily decided, my boyfriend was raised here and knows the place by heart. It’s a small island in the Caribbean, it’s not big at all (only 34 km (21 miles) in length and up to 23 km (14 mi) in width). But so worth a visit, I fell in love with yet another island. The Island is surrounded by white sand beaches, warm clear...

Salt Gypsy Bespoke Hibiscus Range

The new Hibiscus Collection by Salt Gypsy is here! Salt Gypsy switched back to On-Demand manufacturing, which means for a few days each month they will open the gates for bespoke orders, make your ♻️surf garment/s to order in limited editions and then ship out 3-5 weeks later. Why? Great question! It’s actually how Danny kickstarted Salt Gypsy back in 2012 and is a shift that we’re seeing other brands talk about transparently and making a part of their core business structure. It's also part of the global #fashionrevolution that’s been gaining traction for the last several years.It’s a way to reduce the overproduction of inventory that ends up discounted (which is not conducive to a sustainable business) or in landfills/incinerators.On top of this, by ordering through...

Surf Destinations: Nicaragua with Magdalena Zielińska

When Magdalena Zielińska sent me an amazing photo of her recent surf travels in Central America, it reminded me of my long bucket list of surf destinations. While we still have to be patient for a little while before travel will return to normal, now might be the ideal time to start planning your next destination. Why not make it Nicaragua? Magdalena Zielińska wrote about her experience in Nicaragua for us.Get those notebooks out!      EL GIGANTE   El Gigante is definitely still a hidden gem of marvellous Nicaragua. Even though the country is visited by roughly 1.9 millions tourists each year (statistics from 2017 - a year before the protests emerged) Nicaragua is still one of the countries in Latin...
