Man, it is getting cold out. Don't you sometimes just sit back and shiver, wishing you were somewhere nice and warm with that special someone? Preferably a tropical beach somewhere in the Southern Hemisphere where right now as it is actually summertime and the waves are epic. Don't you miss not having to wear your Arctic level protection wetsuit when you go surfing? Well stop dreaming, tell mom you aren't going to be home for Christmas and buy a ticket already!
What to Pack?
Once you get to your island destination (Australia counts as an island, doesn't it?) you are definitely going to need some sweet open toed footwear. Nothing too fancy but definitely durable and something that makes a statement about your individual style. Well that's easy to find. The Reef Fanning Flip-Flop looks like it could handle years of gnarly beach adventures and still look none the worse for wear. In fact they are so dressy and comfortable you could probably wear them on the plane. That sure would make it easier when you go through security and have to take off your shoes, now wouldn't it?
But Which One Should I Pick?
Available in six different flavors ranging from the somewhat muted and classic to utterly outrageous, picking a pair of Reef Fanning Flip-Flops is like picking which of your kids to save from a burning building. Okay, it might not be that hard but there really isn't a bad style in the bunch.
We all know surfing attracts a wide array of people nowadays. Surfers can be businessmen, aging hippies and metal-heads...all sharing waves. For the surfer with a prep mentality the Tan/Brown/Red is a fine choice while the Brown/Gum color scheme is best left to natives or pro-surfers. Grey/Glow is for mack-daddies, Black/Reefix is for cyber-geeks while Black/Turquoise/Ray-Gun is best left to anyone who is a hippie/CEO of a dotcom. Lastly, the Black/Silver is perfect for anyone not looking to stand out and just wants to find that perfect wave.
