I was so hesitant to leave my Midwestern palace of an apartment to move to New York where I knew I would be exchanging paradise for a shoebox at a higher cost. Being an east coaster and having the ocean so close by has made me realize that it was totally worth it. I didn’t even consider the fact that my teenage dreams of being a surfer was only a $2.50 subway ride away.
The first few months here were somewhat stressful, but surfing definitely takes care of that! I’ve only gone twice but I feel like I’ve been doing it forever. I felt more pro the second time around in this amazing Triangl bikini made of neoprene which is similar to a wetsuit. I used to be very sporty as a teen so this bathing suit makes me feel younger but still very chic and fashionable atop my surfboard.
