On the color and form opening of Eye Yi Yi May 25th at Vintage Market Place in Malibu. The opening was a blast, plenty of color, pink flamingos, live music, yummy snacks and drinks. Friendly non-snooty crowd, nice seeing old friends and making new ones. Andy generously auctioned off one of his works to the highest bidder giving the proceeds to West LA/Malibu Surfrider. YAY! There is a variety of so-cal cool paintings and fairly priced prints. Show is running May 26th- July 1st, 2017.
Andy’s playful and colorful style reminds me of the word frolic and leaves much up for the imagination in a positive way. These new works do not disappoint. One of my fave’s is the “Wife Aquatic” because a) she is wearing a big hat. I love hats! Or even if I really hate hats, I have surrendered to waring them for sun protection. b) We are aquatic wives, women and girls at SLAG. Check out the show after a surf day at the beach or doing a local hike.

Calling all co-sailing, surf, adventure enthusiasts. I have been following Captain Liz Clark’s voyage on Swell since she set sail back around ten years ago. At that time she was not a Patagonia Ambassador nor a Nat Geo Adventurer but boy has she earned both those titles. We are so excited to have her stop in Santa Monica. Join us if you can. For her 10 ways to make a better world, click the link above. Hope to see you there!
This Saturday 4-18-2015 come join us at Paradise Cove, CA for the annual SUP4cleanwater fundraiser. There will be races, raffles and a big beach party after. You can even rent a board from Pro-SUP and all proceeds go to keeping Santa Monica Bay clean.
My favorite for surf and everyday is from Beauty Counter (here’s my shop, http://www.beautycounter.com/anniewalton-teter—and you can help support this surfer girl with purchases!).
Thirty years ago, a group of surfers from Malibu, California, took action to fight the environmental health risks associated with escalating coastal development. Since its inception in 1984, the Surfrider Foundation has evolved into one of the largest nonprofit grassroots organizations dedicated to protecting and enjoying the world’s oceans, waves, and beaches.
To celebrate, they have launched the organization’s first-ever timeline and an opportunity for the public to submit a design for their 2015 membership tee.

Camp Koru helped me through the most difficult time of my life to date. This weekend (July 11-14 2014), on the Hood River in Oregon, Athletes4Cancer’s founder Tonia Farman hosts her Kiteboarding4Cancer event. This provides funding for cancer survivors to attend her snowboard, surf, kite outdoor adventures and move as gracefully as possible beyond the diagnosis. She has been a pioneer and champion ocean athlete and boarder in her own right. Go Tonia! Mahalo, camp Koru. Today I pledged in memory of one of the beautiful spirits I met at my Camp Koru session, Angela Zahniser.
