Surf, Swim, Skin
By ELLEN LEWIS
That’s me pictured above! Hanging out at Cerritos, one of my favorite beaches in Baja, Mexico. Cerritos is well known for its surfing vibe and general laid-back attitude. We ‘gringos’ go there to escape the Cabo party scenes and the treacherous surf for which most of the area is known. Surfing, a big-time activity here has never appealed to me. I fear some crazy sea monster will swallow me up. (Strange since I have absolutely no fear of a 1000 lb. horse, me astride, cantering through the desert). However, my friend Ann, is just beginning surfing lessons at the ripe young age of 60+. She takes me along to sit seaside during her board lessons. I don’t mind, because afterwards, we commiserate at Barracudas food truck with tacos and margaritas (mines a skinny).
All of this brings me to the Skin 2022 swimwear collection and today’s highlight, Skin’s rash guards, cat, and surf suits. Made from the softest Italian fabrics, Oeko-Tex certified, UV protected and ranging in sizes XS-XL these styles emulate everything Skin does. They are easygoing silhouettes made with a respect for nature, the pursuit of quality and a desire to empower women. That puts Ann directly in the Skin wheelhouse.
