Get the Surfer Look
Whether you're a sweet surfer or just a shubee, get the goods on how to pull off the surfer look!
Surfer Look - Look Like a Local
Surfers wear T-shirts and boardshorts both on and off the beach. That's why the surfer look is a way of life rather than a fashion statement. Their style is very laidback, with lots of logos and lots of colors. For great surf gear, check out Quiksilver, O'Neill, Rip Curl and Billabong. You should also drop by PacSun at your local mall - it carries many different brands of surf wear.
Surfer Look - Be an Accessory Man
Slide into a pair of flip-flops - they're the preferred choice - and strap on Oakley sunglasses to reduce the glare of the sun that reflects off the water. In case you wipe out, the lenses have holes around the edges for fast drainage and quick de-fogging. At $250 US, it's more of a splurge than a steal but come on, how cool is that?
