Get 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?

Surfer Look - Learn the Lingo

You can't walk the walk if you can't talk the talk! So brush up on your surfing terminology with this quickie lesson...

  • Epic - When the waves are epic, the conditions are pretty much perfect.
  • Stoked - Excited, full of enthusiasm!
  • Baller - Someone who cries on the beach when he breaks his board.
  • Nacho - A surfer says this when he messes up.

Dear  Dish-It I want to Impress my Boy Friend by wearing a sleeveless top but the school has a stupid dress code that says: tanks must be 3 fingers wide, No Sleeveless tops!!!, Your skirts must be as long as your finger tips!!! If I don't follow all these rules then i will be suspended from school or sent home to get new clothes. What Should I Do?  ~SchoolDressCodeDisFollower~
