Surf Mama

 

 
Just debuted is the Roxy x Lisa Andersen collection, celebrating a quarter century partnership with this legendary surfer. The first woman on the cover of Surfer magazine in 1995, this 4-time world champion (1994–97) became the face of women’s surfing in the 90’s, renowned for her super charging surf style and sun kissed good looks.

The Roxy x Lisa Andersen collection features a range of chic surf staples that pay homage to the era and the woman. From a modern take on the first female boardshort that Roxy created specifically for her in 1994, to surf-ready bikinis and one-pieces, the collection is full of Lisa Andersen inspired classics.

I first met Lisa as an editor at Conde Nast’s Sports For Women right after that cover debuted. The image of her cutting mid-air and dropping back into the wave, with the coverline “Lisa Andersen surfs better than you” was such a defining moment in women’s sports. Surfer was not a women’s magazine, but the dude’s surf bible. When it made that declaration it leveled the playing field and created a surf icon.

Surf Shack

 

 

“A surf shack is not built around what you think you need, so much as understanding all the things you don’t”, says writer Nina Freudenberger in the introduction to Surf Shack:Laid-Back Living by the Water, a beautiful new coffee table book that takes us inside the bungalows, trailers, cabins, and beach homes of those lucky enough to call themselves surfers. 

Surfing is a way of life reflected in the homes of those who live it. Freudenberger moved from New York City to Venice Beach, California in 2012, and became so enamored of this relaxed and easy going lifestyle she traveled to 18 cites in 4 countries to bring us inside the homes of such lifelong surfers and dedicated newcomers as: Blake and Heather Mycoskie of TOMS; hotelier Sean MacPherson and family; Jawbone founder Yves Behar and Sabrina Burell; and longboard pro Kassia Meador.

“Surfing is a natural filter for life’s nonsense”, says Freudenberger, and what these homes have in common is a style that prioritizes “ease over elegance, good vibes over any grand vision.” They are less about impressive architecture and more about cultivating truly authentic spaces that embrace the life spent in between surf sessions.

With vibrant photographs of design details and bright beaches — from Malibu to the Rockaways, from Japan to Australia — this book captures the soulful milieu of a lifestyle we all aspire to, in and out of the water.
