Fully shacked to perfection
Our last week at Macas was truly awesome, a trip to remember. We had the best time shooting the crew from Sanbah. Hope to see you all again next year.
Ending and starting the year in Bocas, Panama.
I practically live in a bikini, and a bikini is just like a surf board… you need one for every occasion. But more importantly, you definitely need one thats going to do the trick, i.e. STICK! Especially when your surfing.
So far i have come to love 3 brands; 2 have been tried and tested and the other will be ordered very soon.
Karina Mattos Bikinis
I love these itsy bitsy Brazilian style bikinis. Karina’s bikinis have been one of my favs since i started surfing. They have that perfect Brazilian cut butt so you don’t have to worry about those unwanted tan lines, and a draw string around the waist, which makes these bottoms not only super sexy but also super reliable in those bigger waves.
Maggies tops are just the best. I don’t know what it is, but they just seem to STICK! Its hard to find a good bikini top that holds you in after a strong wipe out or a duck dive. Making sure your boobies aren’t poking out is the last thing you want to be worrying about when you can see that next set wave is going to be landing on your head, thats why i adore her brand. Not to mention all the adorable colours and prints she has available.
This is the next brand to be tried and tested and I’m excited to place my order very soon. I have absolute complete faith that i am going to love these bikinis. Katie, the owner of IMSY Swimwear, is so delightfully charming that it shines through in her slinky yet tasteful designs.
Not to mention that all of these lovely ladies are great surfers, which means they are all able to fathom the importance of a firm and durable bikini. Whats your #1 choice?
Daily workout tip…
I have already had my 3 hour surf session. This afternoon i have some spare time sooooooo, today i am going to challenge myself to the UFC Fit Fat Fighter. Wish me luck and remember… we are not here to look pretty, so lets get sweaty! Here is a little motivation to get the blood pumping.
Do it like Adriana is watching.

Whats the point if its not for fun?
Me and my mate, Pedro, joining forces. You CAN surf with us!
The ocean can be unpredictable, so can people. I left the island for a few days and my handbag was stolen, from my hand, by a passer by on a motorbike. NOT cool (sad face).
Next time i’m sat at the resort with not much going on, waiting for the swell to ‘turn on’, kinda wishing i could be in the city somewhere so i could attend a yoga class or go out to the movies… i’ll remind myself that the grass is not always greener.
Island Life is where its at @PlaygroundSurfResort
Determining ones future is never easy. I ask myself many questions everyday; Where will i be in 5 years from now? What will I be doing with my life? When should I start a family?
The more often we see the things around us, even the beautiful and wonderful things, the more they become invisible to us. We need to stop focusing on the things we don’t have at this very moment in time, and start focusing on what we do have.
So, here we are, 2.5 years into a loving relationship, nomadic living, exploring all opportunities and capturing every moment through a lens… Welcome to IndoVibes.
