Keeping Up with Bree Kleeintop

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!

Big Wave Surfer Makani Adric gets ready for Winter

[Heat Wave Indo Breeze & Magenta Boy Short]

 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!”
