10 Summer Essentials
Local surf photographer Zak Noyle recently released his own fin design and we're swooning over the intense color features. With these strapped to your feet, you're ready to get your (mini) dive on or hit the breaks at Point Panic.
We know it's not easy finding the perfect pair of slippers (what you might know as flip flops). After years of searching, we're happy to say that we've found them! Havaianas - for men and women alike - with their slim fit and fun design, are ideal for a day spent lounging on the beach or a lunch date with friends.
When summer comes around, we find ourselves spending even more time outside enjoying the hot Hawaiian sun. That also means we're spending more time exposed to the sun's harmful rays. To keep from getting a bit too sun-kissed, we're using this nifty roll-on sunscreen from Neutrogena. It's not too greasy and works wonders, even if we hit the waves. Trust us, your skin is worth the investment.
Following a long day at the beach, it's important to take extra care, ensuring that your skin remains healthy. Apply a dab of these small-batch lotions to your face each night to leave your skin nourished and glowing. Plus, they come in an array of scents!
You've all heard the term 'beach bag' before and for good reason. When you're lugging around sunscreen, a water bottle, and oversized beach towel, you'll need to store the goods somewhere. Look no further! This bag produced by the Greenroom Hawaii will leave your friends swooning.
Not only do these trunks from Penguin bode well for a day spent surfing or just hanging at the beach, they dry quickly and can double as walkshorts. For gals, one-piece swimsuits have been big in fashion as of late and are also a must-have for your summer wardrobes.
Whether you're spending the day at the beach or ready for a night out on the town, this hat from 'Ōiwi Ocean Gear literally has you covered—best of all, it's made in Hawaii. So you're not only looking sharp, but you're supporting local manufacturing in the Aloha State.
Like so many of you, we too have a soft spot in our heart for poi. Show your pride in our culinary heritage, while hitting the refresh button on your summer wardrobe with this tee!
We're happy to be helping to buck the trend of plastic water bottles. Every year, it's staggering to see just how many of them end up in our landfills and waterways. To help keep our planet free from plastic, we're using a reusable glass water bottle this summer to keep us hydrated at work or at the beach.
We like to think that here in Hawaii, we know a thing or two about the proper aloha shirt. From a day at the beach, to sprucing up for a late night on the town, Aloha Shirts are essential for a convenient day to night look.
