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.
If you follow us on Instagram or Facebook you’ve probably been inspired, enthralled and even emoji heart-eyed by our girl Amber Mozo’s photographs. Her travels are frequent and thank the Sea Goddess Heavens, because our thirst for wanderlust is never fully quenched. We are so lucky to have Amber on our team to document the true SL lifestyle that she lives day-in and day-out.
Since Amber travels so often we asked her to create a packing guide for fellow travel bug inhabitants of the world. This list contains her absolute essentials that she’s learned (the hard way) are necessary for tropical destinations frequented by merbabes like yourself.
Whether you’ve played the role of a minx all year, cuddled up to your bae throughout the holidays, or see this upcoming V-Day as an illusive over-commercialized ploy … We have a gift that babes of all types will jump through hoops for!
So get to stretchin’, tighten that kini up and get ready for the jumpin’!

One of our all time favorite photographers, Daniela Quinlan, was craving a candid, colorful, yummy shoot with our forever-muse Mahina Garcia. Colorful and bright? Then to incorporate the Heat Wave pt 2 collection was a no brainer!
Daniela was inspired by a photograph of Natasha Poly where she was eating ice cream for Vogue magazine a few years ago. Instantly she thought adding a fun fearless twist. She thought that a midnight dip in the ocean would be a great addition to what she had in mind.
It was fun and bright night, until Mahina suddenly rushed out of the water because she saw A SHARK in the water. Oh, that’s the island life!
Winter is Coming … and unlike Game of Thrones, there’s no Jon Snow riding to the rescue. HOWEVER, we’ve got babe Makani Adric surfing some massive waves. Showing us that she doesn’t need men, she beats them! Makani tells us what she does to prepare for Surf Season and how she stays in shape all year-round.
One of our favorite photographers, Shannon Cummings & her friends went on a trip to the French Polynesia for an adventure of a lifetime. 21 days, countless hours in the crisp Polynesian ocean & great memories. We think that for you to feel what she experienced, Shannon will have to tell you herself:
Meet Sacha Kalis aka Bahamas girl – born on a little island in the Bahamas. There’s a list of things why Sacha & her mom, Elena Kalis inspire us so much. They bring out the beauty of the bluest blues from the Bahamas, and get the most beautiful dreamlike underwater pictures.
In expected SL fashion we are reluctant to see summer begin to fade away. So, in honor of our endless summer state of mind, we are thrilled to release the HEAT WAVE Collection today! We want you each to encompass the free-spirited beach babe attitude you’ve carried around these last few months and let summer linger just a bit longer.
The collection consists of 6 new styles, each with multiple prints, and made of some of the softest materials we’ve had yet! You will literally never want to take some of these off, and hey we won’t judge you!
The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2014 Extra has hit news stands! We are delighted to see all the never-before-seen photos from the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 50th Anniversary edition. And best of all, we are thrilled to see our favorite babe Nina Agdal wearing our Reversible Thong on the COVER & our all time favorite Bow Back Brief in the inside spread!
