There are lots of bikini brands on the market that advertise their “surf bikinis.” Some of these so-called “surf bikinis” do work (remain in place even during the worst wipeouts), but others are only good for wearing on the beach.
That’s why more and more ladies are favoring the one-piece bathing suit over the surf bikini. They are, of course, very practical in the water (you don’t have to worry about losing your bottoms or flashing the lineup); but they can also be cute and classy.
Pura Vida Adventures team member and Argentina native, Andy, is one of the many local surfer girls that rocks the one-piece swimsuit. She has an impressive collection that she has built up through her travels. Recently, I asked her about her extensive collection:
“I love this type of swimsuit. I won’t leave any place I visit if I don’t buy a one-piece first! I love cool brands like Volcom, but I also love to get them at garage sales. These [garage sale finds] are my favorites. I [also] have some [swimsuit] designer friends who send me models to test for surfing.”
Haven’t tried the one-piece yet? You should. Stay tuned…our summer bikini review will be coming soon!
