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.
“I love surfing during the winter. Whether it’s surfing fun little sandbars around the North Shore or dropping into big waves at Waimea Bay, you always have to be prepared for any surfing conditions you are about to surf in.” Makani tells us that she loves how every day is different out in the water, keeps the thrill alive!

STAYING FIT ALL YEAR: “The first and most important key to surfing during Hawaiian Winter’s is always being prepared mentally and physically. That means eating the right foods and making time for daily physical activities. Cardio is very important if you are thinking about surfing big winter waves. Some of my regular cardio workouts include running, burpees, mountain biking, swimming, jiu-jitsu and anything else to get my heart rate up and pumping.”

SAFETY IS KEY: “Surfing for me is very exciting, but before Iʻm about to paddle out I always stretch in the gym or on the beach. I prefer stretching on the beach because it gives me time to scope out the line-up, see what rip currents and dangers there are and especially to check the overall conditions of the water. If you don’t feel comfortable by looking at the surf from the shore, then do not get yourself into trouble by paddling out. Better to be safe than sorry!”
TIPS FROM MAKANI: “Having the right equipment to surf with is just as important as being prepared physically and mentally. Talk to your shaper, get the right size surfboard and try it out in safe surf before you take it out in high-level surfing conditions.”
WHAT SHE LOVES ABOUT SLB: “I LOVE my San Lorenzo Bikinis, there are so many different styles to choose from, makes it easy to have a bikini for every activity! With San Lorenzo there’s a lot of different and unique colors. My friends and I always get the best compliments with every session we surf. Surfing isn’t all about being the best surfer or catching the biggest wave … it’s about having fun. Smile a lot and have fun with the people you are around, always do the things that make you happy!”
