Life is a Beach on St. Patrick’s Day!

A lineup of Lucky Limericks

Written by SurfWriter Girls Sunny Magdaug and Patti Kishel

A limerick is a funny, five-line poem popularized in Irish pubs in the 1800s.

In the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day, SurfWriter Girls Sunny Magdaug and Patti Kishel wrote these beach limericks for you –

 

Surfer Dave

There once was a surfer named Dave,

Who went looking for the perfect wave.

But, just when he found a winner,

A whale ate him for dinner

And Dave’s surfboard was all they could save.

**********

Lotion Commotion

There was a young lady who went to the ocean.

She sat on the sand and put on her sun lotion.

But, her yellow bikini

Was incredibly teeny

And this caused a major commotion.

**********

Surfer Girl

There once was a surfer girl named Jasmine.

Like a magnet, she attracted all the men.

When she went out to compete

In any surfing meets

It’s so crazy how she always would win.

**********

Rude Dude

There once was an arrogant surfer dude,

Who would hog all the waves and act rude.

He’d steal waves away,

Keeping the angry surfers at bay,

Until they realigned his attitude.

**********

Beulah’s Hula

There was a shapely lady named Beulah,

Who could really shake up the hula.

The men would all gather

And get into a lather

And Beulah would rake in the moola.

**********

For each petal on the shamrock
This brings a wish your way –
Good health, good luck, and happiness
For today and every day.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Famed surf artist Ron Croci is a multimedia artist with over 40 years of commercial and fine art experience whose paintings are in galleries around the world.

Ever since meeting Ron a few years ago at the International Surfing Museum in Huntington Beach SurfWriter Girls Sunny Magdaug and Patti Kishel have been big fans.

 

A true waterman, Croci’s love of surfing and diving comes through in all of his paintings, which are energetic blends of color and movement.

So, when Croci told SurfWriter Girls that his new book, The Illustrated Atlas of Surfing History (written by Joel Smith and Illustrated by Croci), was out, we were excited to see his latest creation.

For the Illustrated Atlas, Smith (a documentary filmmaker and TV writer-producer)) and Croci speculate on just how far back surfing goes. To before the early Polynesians.

To ancient Egypt and Syria 10,000 years ago. Or maybe even to the Stone Age.

With each page in the book, Croci’s illustrations vividly bring the history of surfing to life.

Croci, who got his start in advertising and film, helped design over 200 ads for the likes of 7-Up, Swatch watches, and Quiksilver’s Roxy division and worked on the design teams for close to 50 films from The Blues Brothers to Planet of the Apes and Ghostbusters. He’s also been in high demand as a book illustrator.

When it comes to using a pencil, brush or stylus, there isn’t anything Croci can’t do!

The Illustrated Atlas of Surfing History shows just how talented Ron Croci is… taking you right into the barrel of the waves.

Find Your Fall Fashion Style!

Classic Tips from Belinda Barnard

dsc05475-a

Written by SurfWriter Girls Sunny Magdaug and Patti Kishel

autumn-leaves-fashionWith autumn leaves on the ground and the smell of pumpkin spice latte in the air, it’s time to think of fall fashions. Even in laid-back SoCal – where no one dresses formally or needs winter coats – it’s still nice to pull off a little style.

So, SurfWriter Girls Sunny Magdaug and Patti Kishel went to a fashion expert to get some style tips – our friend Belinda Barnard, a former high-fashion model with photo credits in Glamour and other top fashion magazines.

dsc06724dsc06726

 

Barnard, a competitive swimmer who grew up in Tacoma, Washington, and studied and worked in Seattle, started modeling at thirteen and was represented by the prestigious Wilhelmina talent agency.dsc06737

photographer-with-camera

She worked with some of the world’s leading photographers, including the highly respected Jim Hadley and internationally-known Billy Pegram.

She also did something almost unheard of in the youth-obsessed fashion industry – maintain a successful modeling career for 30 years.

dsc06730

The secret to Barnard’s success is something we all can do – developing her own look. Rather than trying to copy others or going with the “flavor of the month” styles, she was herself, unique and one-of-a-kind. That made photographers and designers want to work with her.

dsc06725

 

“I always tried to add my own twist to a look,” Barnard told SurfWriter Girls. “A ‘Belinda twist’ that made the fashions stand out. It could be a hat, a flower in my hair or an accessory. A look or stance that caught people’s eyes.”

What’s your style? Beachy? Casual? Button-downed? Punk? Glam?

big-group-ladies

Harper’s Bazaar agrees that it’s up to you, whether it’s retro chic or heavy metal. Style is personal. It’s nice to have so many choices.

Whatever yours is, with California’s sun, surf and salty breezes taking a toll on everyone’s skin, SurfWriter Girls know skin care is critical. Talking to Barnard about this, we were surprised to learn what her favorite skin care product is. Nothing upscale or fancy, it’s Oil of Olay. “The glycerin in the cream keeps the moisture in your skin,” Barnard explained.

dsc06721

“And always keep it simple,” Barnard advises. “Think of Grace Kelly. She was always elegant without appearing to try. One time she went to the Oscars with just one simple necklace as her accessory, while most of the other actresses were covered in jewels.”

Throughout Barnard’s modeling days she was always open to new opportunities. This includes representing Neiman Marcus as its Essence of Giving Model. Barnard also helped other models build their careers, giving them tips and advice. And, when she wasn’t modeling, she explored other creative careers. As a theatrical makeup artist for the Long Beach Civic Light Opera Youth Conservatory and the Courts Manager for the John Wayne Tennis Club in Newport Beach.

dsc06732

dsc06727

Helping others has been a common thread throughout her life, dating back to her college days when she majored in pre-med. Now, after many detours along the way, Barnard has come full circle and returned to the medical field as a physician’s assistant, helping patients prepare for and recover from surgery.

Belinda Barnard is living proof that true beauty is internal more than external. And, when you have your own style, fashion is ageless…especially when you add a “twist of Belinda.”

Party Aussie Style!

Fashionista Kathryn Porritt Shares the Look

Presented by SurfWriter Girls Sunny Magdaug and Patti Kishel

Say “G’day!” Throw a shrimp on the barbie and get ready to party in style the way they do in the Land Down Under.

Australia-travelers-map

With summer parties still going strong in the Northern Hemisphere there’s always the question “What to wear?”

vintage dress up

When it comes to fashion, guys are lucky. Just pull on a classic T or Hawaiian shirt and you’re all set. But, what’s a gal to do?

SurfWriter Girls Sunny Magdaug  and Patti Kishel just heard from Aussie fashion stylist Kathryn Porritt, the owner of online beach fashion website Bondi Lifestyle, that the answer to that is easy.

In a word, she says,”Kaftans!”

1024x1024m-white-EPxmJBgmwV8KSL92FjkIfSETm1H6tO30_adj

bondi lifestyle logo

Whether it’s cotton or silk, casual or chic, there’s a style of Kaftan that’s just right for any party occasion. Take a look at this story Kathryn wrote for Surf’n Beach Scene Magazine and channel your own summer fashion fantasies.

Kaftans are your Ultimate Summer Party Choice

Written by Kathryn Porritt

Emerald-Grove-Maxi-Kaftan-009

The famous set are all wearing them at LA pools.  The glitterati are swanning around yachts in the Mediterranean in them.  The glamorous at the beach resort are all relaxing with a cocktail in them.

They’re everywhere, and they’re chic.  They’re kaftans and they’re your ultimate summer party choice.

For a Summer wedding or a party around the pool, a Kaftan embellished in crystals and sequins in the color of your choice, is the ultimate in party glam.  You’ll be ultra comfortable and incredibly chic all at once – and how many pieces of clothing do that for you?

A Maxi Kaftan in Silk

Feathers-Silk-Maxi-Kaftan-002Kaftans come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, but the most chic are maxi kaftans that fall to your ankles – either plain or embellished – and have sweeping batwing sleeves and low necklines.

This shape suits every size and shape, from the petite among us to plus size divas.  Showing off your décolletage with encrusted jewels at the neckline and floating in a silky maxi dress is the ultimate in summer chic.

The maxi kaftan evokes glamour and style – effortless resort chic, that never clings and always feels cool to the touch.  From hand painted kaftans that would look at home in a Grecian resort to a rainbow of sunset colors sparkling at dusk, your pick of hues that suit your mood and the theme of your soiree is unlimited.

A Little Bit of Indie Party Chic

Indie and boho chic is everything right now, and if you want to get the boho look, but you left your inner hippie in the 70’s, kaftans will bring the look you want to your party style without compromising on your contemporary glamour.

Teal-Pearl-Garden-Maxi-Kaftan-Red (2) A

A linen, cotton or silk kaftan in a midi or maxi cut can be worn with sandals or brightly colored heels for an elegantly indie party look.  Add as much bling as you dare to your necklaces, wrists and ears with boho accessories that offer romantic sparkle. Natural loose hair in waves is just perfect with a fun plait on the side to bring a little bit of cheeky fun to the look at night.

Kaftans for Beach Weddings

Circus-Circus-Maxi-Kaftan

A destination or beach wedding always brings excitement!  Planning the perfect outfit can be a disaster, though, if you’re not mindful of cool fabrics and easy to wear pieces.

A kaftan can be the perfect choice because the shape is flattering to every shape and size from petite to plus size, and the fall of the fabric never clings, so you’ll always feel cool, no matter if you’re scorchingly hot!

Depending on the time of day the wedding is being held, and whether it’s a resort or beach ceremony, wear your kaftan with high beaded sandals or low slung flats, masses of gold jewelled necklaces, stacked bangles, and a big statement cocktail ring.

SurfWriter Girls Sunny Magdaug and Patti Kishel love seeing all the animals out in the water having fun. Our friend Huntington Beach surf artist Dave Reynolds is a sight to see when he goes surfing with his best buds Nacho and Lance, a Chihuahua and a Labrador mix. Nacho may be little, but he holds his own against the big dogs.

Announcing its presence with a pre-opening bash July 7th, the event benefited the non-profit Surfrider Foundation Huntington/Seal Beach Chapter.

Featuring Brandon Boyd, Mike Einziger and Ben Kenney from multi-platinum-selling rock band Incubus, The Bungalow was jammed with people waiting to get inside.

Located in the trendy, beach-themed Pacific City mall (21058 Pacific Coast Highway), The Bungalow is the vision of owner Brent Bolthouse, who has another The Bungalow lounge in Santa Monica.

Bolthouse says the goal of both lounges is to provide an “intimate setting” that’s like being in someone’s home. The 6,000-sq-ft.space is divided into separate rooms with sofas, comfortable chairs, pool tables, fireplaces, and a patio overlooking a million-dollar view of the beach.

Warm and welcoming, The Bungalow is just steps from the sand, making it an ideal watering hole for beating the heat and savoring the lounge’s craft beer and signature drink selections.

Add in an assortment of tacos, sliders and flat breads brought in from the lounge’s culinary partner The Bear Flag Fish Co. located downstairs and you’re all set.

Surfwriter Girls can easily see whiling away an afternoon or evening with Greg Kishel watching the beach action from The Bungalow’s patio or taking in one of HB’s picture-perfect sunsets.

Pink Flamingos – Colorful and Fun!

Birds are In the Pink

Caribbean_flamingo

Written by SurfWriter Girls Sunny Magdaug and Patti Kishel

Lightmatter_flamingo

The word “flamingo” comes from Spanish, meaning flame – an apt choice for the brightly-hued birds. Whether wading in the water or in flight, flamingos are a sight to see.

Flamingo_flying

The long-legged animals themselves are native to parts of Africa, South America, the Caribbean, Mexico and other temperate-to-tropical locales.

flamingos wading in water

But, their plastic namesakes – the garden décor variety – are likely to pop up anywhere, especially in beach communities. In fact, there are probably more of the hot-pink plastic flamingos than the natural ones.

Don Featherstone

A garden accessory as popular – and some would say as essential – as the garden gnome and tiki torch, pink flamingos came to take up roost on our lawns and patios because of one person – Massachusetts artist and inventor Donald Featherstone, who developed them in 1957 as a product for his employer Union Products, a plastics manufacturer.

What better way to showcase the company’s plastics than to mold them into the eye-catching birds?

Plastic-pink-flamingos garden box

Both praised and put down by art critics and everyday people alike, pink flamingos have stood the test of time and become iconic symbols of a fun-loving lifestyle that isn’t afraid to be flamboyant (another word that means flame).

SurfWriter Girls Sunny Magdaug and Patti Kishel have caught sight of the pink birds at the beach and throughout the OC. In fact, Patti even has a pink flamingo in her own back yard.

Offering the promise of South Seas adventures and tropical paradises, the cruise line commissioned top artists and photographers to create advertising posters that would lure travelers to book passage on its ships traversing the Pacific Ocean.

 

Artists Frank Macintosh, John Kelly, Eldridge Logan, Louis Macouillaird, Richard Moore and Eugene Savage all painted iconic island scenes for Matson.
