She’s a professional surfer, model, bikini lover, one of our new favorite girls to shoot, and she always seems to inspire us in one way or another. Can you guess who we’re talking about? If you guessed Bree Kleintop, you’ve got it! We wanted our SL girls to get a chance to know the gorgeous blonde bombshell, so Bree sat down with us to talk about her experience living in different places, how she keeps her amazing bikini-ready body, and of course to give us a few words of inspiration.
Hi Bree! Thanks for joining us. Tell us a bit about yourself.
B: I’m originally from the East Coast, now residing on the West Coast in the cool little town of San Clemente. I was a competitive surfer when I was younger, which gave me amazing opportunities to travel the world and shoot campaigns with my sponsors. As I’ve gotten older I’ve been lucky to be able to transition into a lifestyle / free surfer. I also signed with a few Modeling Agencies and get to work with amazing clients like San Lorenzo! I love to travel, dive into new experiences and do things that put a smile on my face… Laughter is key!
Living in SoCal and being in Hawaii all the time, you know all the ins & outs of both places. What is your favorite part about Hawaii and California?
B: Hawaii is such a beautiful magical place…Every morning I wake up to the sound of the waves crashing and I can jump right out of bed and hop into the warm water for a fun surf. I love going for runs along the bike path, and grabbing my fav lunch at Pupukea Grill, so yummy. You wear bikinis everywhere and there’s not really a care in the world or any stress, you’re just happy living the life. California on the other hand is much faster paced but so many more opportunities. There’s always a new place to explore or some fun event going on in LA. It’s good to have the juxtaposition between the two…they are total opposites but both inspiring and good for the soul in different ways!
When you’re not surfing or looking pretty in pictures, what do you enjoy doing?
B: When I’m not working or in the water, you’ll usually find me outdoors doing something with friends, reading a good book, cooking a yummy meal or messing around on my guitar. Filming surfing and cool lifestyle pieces is also a passion of mine. I have an amazing boyfriend who always keeps me laughing, goofing around and up to something fun!
Surfing, modeling, traveling the world and your personal life, it all sounds so exciting! How do you keep a balance of it all?
B: I have some really great people who manage my schedule and keep me straight! But for sure there are days that I have to push myself to fit it all in and making sure I take time to do something for myself helps keep everything in perspective, even if it’s just a redbox & froyo
We know you love sweets (ehemm.. snacking on some Cinnabon before shooting last December!) How do you keep your body bikini ready all year round?
B: Haha I love to cook for my boyfriend & friends! Of course I had to have some sort of goodie for you guys to start the shoot right. It’s important to splurge every once in while and enjoy life. I just make sure to go to an extra spin or barre class, which I’m addicted to lately! But I listen to my body and give it what it wants, I just try not to overindulge and always being outside getting active is the name of the game!
Do you have a favorite bikini from the La Boheme collection?
B: I have many! But I have a lil extra love right now for the Braided Thong…the Ruby Red color pops & makes me summertime happy!
Okay, last but not least. Can you share some words of inspiration for our loyal SL babes?
B: The trick is to enjoy life! Don’t wish away your days waiting for better ones ahead. One of my favorite quotes that always rings true is…’And above all…watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you. Because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic…will never find it.’
Thanks Bree for the interview! We love to watch you do your thing. Your positivity and great attitude towards life inspires us here at SL. You are truly beautiful, inside and out. See you at the beach!
Bright and bold, those are the words that come to mind when we think of the place that encompasses BAHIA, our pre-summer limited edition collection. This collection is inspired by the beautiful white sand coastlines of Brazil, combined with the energetic atmosphere of rich culture and music.
Escape with us to a vibrate state of euphoria that will have you feeling the spirit of Brazil with every print and style. Which includes all new vibrant prints, including five new designs, along with two of our favorite classics.
The Mini Knot 3 strap is one of our top favorites from BAHIA. This bikini is the ultimate pick for a girl who wants to show some skin, or barely anything! It’s sexy and alluring, and pays close attention to detail.
THE KNOT 3 STRAP
The Knot 3 strap, another barely there bikini. This one is for the girl who wants to keep it playfully sexy; it’s similar to the Mini Knot 3 Strap but the bottom has a little bit fuller coverage in the front with its diamond shape.
THE PADDED RUCHED HIPSTER STRAP
The Padded Ruched Hipster Strap is another new style. This bikini gives you that hipster strap fuller coverage in the bottoms while offering more support in the top and accentuating all those curves.
THE PADDED THONG BRIEF
The Padded Thong Brief, another new style. This bikini is for the girl who wants fuller support in the top as well as the tiny bottom Brazil is famous for. A perfect combination!
THE SPORTS BRIEF
The Sports Brief, one of our all time favorites! If you love to surf or explore in the ocean, this is the one for you! The bottoms are a little thicker and the top has a cross design with keeps the bikini from going anywhere, unless you want it to!
THE STRINGY BOW BACK
The String Bow Back. It’s back & better than ever! This bikini is so playfully sexy, with a sliding triangle halter and stringy bikini bottom with a flirty bow.
I had been on Oahu for two days when I got the call from San Lorenzo Bikinis that they wanted to send my best friend Amber and I to the island of Molokai to shoot. The moment I got off the phone with SL, I was so excited. I had never been to another Hawaiian island before, and Amber (who’s been to many) hadn’t been to Molokai either. It would be a new experience for both of us, and I was anxious to get there. San Lorenzo booked our tickets, and we were set to leave a few days after. Since we were only staying a couple of days, we packed really light. Here’s what we brought.
MOLOKAI PACKING LIST:
Cameras: Both Amber & I have Canon 5D Mark II’s. Sapphire& sunscreen: I love this sunscreen because it’s organic and it’s made with coconut oil. Maui Babe: This gives you a perfect bronzed glow. LOTS of San Lorenzo Bikinis Beach towels: San Lorenzo makes the cutest & brightest beach towels. Good books: My all time favorites are The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle & The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. Cute beachy clothing & jewelry: Whenever you do bikini shoots, it’s always important to bring accessories and cute clothes to mix it up a little bit. Tea: Amber & I always try to keep it healthy and detox no matter where we are. Tiny tea by Your Tea is awesome. We bring this everywhere, and we’re always sipping on it. A good playlist: Amber and I spent some time the night before loading some new songs onto our I-phones. It’s important to have good tunes to listen to on the plane ride. And also to jam to while we’re shooting photos for San Lorenzo. Journal: I always bring my journal everywhere I go. It’s special to document your life no matter where you are.
Amber and I packed our bags that night and the next morning we were up early and off to the airport. Since Molokai is so close to Oahu the plane we ended up taking was really small. It was only a six-seater plane, and there were only two other people on it with us. The plane ride ended up being a little bumpy since it was windy out and in a small plane you can feel any kind of movement in the air. That’s where good tunes and cameras come in handy! Amber and I distracted ourselves by taking photos from the plane, and jamming out to some good songs.
The plane ride was so quick; we landed in no time at all. After Amber and I landed we had to get groceries since we were staying at a house, so the first thing we did was drive to the grocery store. The whole ride there was so beautiful. Molokai is known for how reserved and untouched it is. We enjoyed a 30 min peaceful ride to the store, and maybe saw 1 or 2 cars the whole drive there. Thanks to Google, we were able to find a really cool all natural grocery store owned by a sweet local of Molokai. We spent about fifteen minutes there and loaded up on a bunch of fresh fruit. Fruit is great because it’s so healthy, delicious, and it’s even good to use for props while shooting. After we stalked up on fruit we went to the other main grocery store to get a few more necessities. There we found a little farmers market, and we bought a few more healthy snacks such as avocado and a pineapple. All the locals in Molokai were such sweet, down to earth, loving people. Amber and I loved their energy and how welcome they made us feel.
After getting all our groceries Amber and I got back on the road and headed towards the house we were staying at. The whole forty-minute drive there, Amber and I listened to good music with the windows rolled down. The island was so raw and beautiful. It felt like we had gone back in time to some of the earliest days in Hawaii, there was no traffic, no buildings taller than a palm tree, dirt roads. Even the beaches we drove by were vacant of people. As we were getting closer to the house, we drove down this very narrow road that curved around a black sand beach, it was so beautiful and untouched I could hardly believe it. We were in for another surprise when we arrived at the house. Where we stayed was a hidden glass cottage that not only had outdoor bathtubs overlooking the ocean but it even had it’s own secret beach. Amber and I were in heaven. We spent the majority of our days lounging in the warm bathtubs, shooting photos around the house, laying out on the private beach out front reading good books, and exploring the other beaches on Molokai. No matter what we did, we were always in a San Lorenzo Bikini. The weather was off and on, and it was rainy and stormy for most of the trip but that didn’t stop us! We adventured around the island, found some stunning beaches, a cool palm tree grove, and tried to capture the simple and raw beauty of Molokai the best we could.
I’m so thankful the San Lorenzo team sent Amber and I to this gorgeous island to shoot and explore. It was an experience I’ll never forget. Molokai really taught me to appreciate natural & raw beauty, and I’ll always remember the Aloha the locals there showed us.

The opening of our Malibu store was kicked off with some amazing babes last week & we thought we’d give you a little glimpse into the decadence that went down.
Any perfect day starts with a flower crown on your head, a beautiful view overlooking those gorgeous blue waters, and a delicious brunch at Malibu Farm. And so obviously, that’s exactly what we did!
Once the babes ventured over to our little gem of a store, they were greeted by the amazing LA based Henna artist Deepali Deshpande. Getting babes festival-ready with her amazing designs, she’s the go-to henna artist for stars like Shay Mitchell & Pia Mia. We were so honored to have Deepali come to our event and share her work!
Check her out on Instagram @GloryOfHenna and book her for your Coachella Weekend 2 needs by texting 925-699-3353 😉
Thank you to all the merbabes that came out to share in this journey of ours, we are stoked that a dream of ours has come to life before our eyes! Come down to visit us & checkout the blog before this one for more info on our newest SL Malibu store!
Daydreams of a summer breeze, yearning for the kiss of the sun, and lusting for the salt on your skin? These are three essential components that make up each of our Brand Ambassadors. Our teams stretch across the Pacific and now for the first time across the world. As varied as the babes who make them up may be, they each have one commonality: the love of being in a bikini on a beautiful beach.
We strive to exude a carefree attitude, wielded by our intuition and surroundings. Empowering females to be more than what meets the eye and not to hesitate in life, whether it be in regards to their bodies, lifestyle or adventures. Each of our Brand Ambassador’s embody this mindset whilst expressing individualism through their day-to-day SL bikini looks.
Being passionate about our mission and brand and wanting to share that with other merbabes like yourself is exactly what we’re looking for! Representing San Lorenzo Bikinis at designated events, through social media channels and being involved in projects on and off the beach are just some of the shenanigans our babes participate in.
If this sounds like you and you’re over 18 with open availability, who lives & breathes the beach and bikinis then post a recent bikini pic on Instagram , tag us AND use your designated area’s hashtag:
