Island Living in Island GLOW

San Lorenzo Bikinis had the amazing opportunity to work with Maui based photographer, Karim Iliya. Karim travels to breath-taking Tonga for 3 months out of each year to capture the humpback whales who migrate there as the weather gets colder.

He was joined by Models Charyse & Brianna who wore bikinis from our newest collection – Island GLOW – click here to shop the collection!

How gorgeous is our NEW Triangle Sport Top & Belt Brief Bottoms in Coconut? Such a fun, sporty cut, perfect for surfing, swimming, and diving! – click here to shop the top & here to shop the bottoms.

Another brand new style from our Island GLOW collection is our Retro Strap top & Retro Short set – shown here in our ‘Mango’ colorway – click here to shop the top & here to shop the bottoms.

Tonga’s calm shallow waters look like something out of a dream!

But it’s the underwater scenes that really blew us away! Can you imagine being this close to one of these majestic animals?

Since Karim has gone out to see the whales so often, (and we’ve only ever seen them from the shore) we understandably had a few questions to ask!

Q: You grew up in the Middle East and Asia, but what brought you to the islands? Why did you begin spending 1/4 of your year shooting whales? Was it a particular experience that drew you to them?

A: My primary work is underwater photography and video with a focus on whales and documenting their lives. To me they are the most interesting subjects to photograph underwater, very rewarding to photograph, and are highly intelligent with dynamic behavior.

Q: What was the overall mood and weather like in Tonga the day you shot San Lorenzo in the water?

A: The weather can vary quite a lot throughout the day when you are on an island in the middle of the ocean! Sunny, cloudy, then stormy – you get the full spectrum.

Q: How did you find the models, and what were they most excited about that day? Did they have any feedback on the bikinis they wore? Were they a little anxious or scared to be around the whales?

A: One of them is my girlfriend, and the other is a friend of ours. Charyse, my girlfriend, has spent over 100 days, and hundreds of hours in the water with the humpbacks so there was no anxiety there. They thought the bikinis were very comfortable!

Q: How many whales did you see that day or was it over 2-3 days?

A: We saw two whales, a mother and her calf. Some days we see more, some days less.

Q: Lastly, what was your favorite shot and part of the day?

A: It’s a shot of Charyse relaxing just beneath the surface (below) the colors were beautiful and the place I enjoy most is being underwater.

& here is the video that Karim and the models got that day! Doesn’t Tonga just look like a dream??

M O L O K A I

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.
