We couldn’t resist posting this video starring Gisele Bündchen and Game of Thrones hottie Michiel Huisman. It is directed by none other than Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge; The Great Gatsby). And that old familiar Grease song? Crooned by Lo-Fang. Gisele certainly looks gorgeous, but we are more curious about who is really shredding those waves. Whatever you think of the ad, it is a fun three-minute fantasy.

We are huge fans of Bethany Hamilton—you better believe we are DVRing this season’s Amazing Race—and we are even more excited about the film Surfs Like a Girl (great name!), which Bethany is working on with Aaron Lieber about documenting her life and water skills. Bethany and Aaron are raising money on Kickstarter. We have donated—have you?
Alison Teal takes us back to the Maldives where she shot the Discovery Channel’s Naked and Afraid series to highlight their plastic trash epidemic.

How cool is this? I got to talk to students on the USC surf team, as well as the instructor for the surfing class (yes, surfing class!), for the USC Trojan Family magazine‘s Fall edition (online now).
