    BEACH FREELY DIARIES: SAN FRANCISCO, CA

    BEACH FREELY DIARIES: SAN FRANCISCO, CA

    JOHANNA ANGELA GALANG SHOWS HOW SHE CAN BEACH FREELY IN THE MIDDLE OF A BUSTLING CITY

    Everyone loves the healing, care-free vibes of the beach, but face it: you can only physically visit the beach every so often, especially if you live and work far from it.

    Johanna Angela Galang, a full-time social media influencer and co-founder of the first-ever Filipino-American blogging community, lives in San Francisco but still finds ways to bring the fun, freedom and spirit of the beach with her everyday. Her colorful content and constant positive vibes scream sunny days and beach fun.

    “For me, Beach Freely means the ability to express myself creatively and comfortably in my own fun little way,” said Johanna. “Letting go whenever, wherever and embracing the island girl in me.”

    Johanna believes that you can find beauty throughout the urban jungle by simply looking past the busy streets of the bustling city and focusing on the picturesque buildings and colorful street murals around every corner.

    “San Francisco can still be a perfect place to chill,” she said. “I fell in love with this city the first time I laid eyes on it.”

    Johanna’s key to bringing the beach vibes with her wherever she goes is remembering that life is too short to focus on negativity

    “Your are the pilot of your own life’s choices and decisions so drive yourself to enjoy life, have fun, let go every once in a while, and appreciate life’s wonders and beauty.”

    She also uses her personal style to help bring the beach throughout her daily life.

    “You can always play around with colorful and comfortable outfits, anytime, anywhere,” explained Johanna.

    She wears her Reef sandals as a part of her beach ensemble.

    “I love the idea of embracing the summer beach vibes in every pair.”

    Johanna explained that anyone, anywhere can bring the beach vibes with them wherever they go just like she does.

    “You don’t need to be physically present at the beach to chill and have fun under the sun,” she said. “Even if you’re living is a busy city, always grab the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of life through Beaching Freely.”

    11 TRAVEL TIPS FOR ROME AND AMALFI (FROM BEST FRIENDS)

    11 TRAVEL TIPS FOR ROME AND AMALFI (FROM BEST FRIENDS)

    Rome is filled with so much history and of course amazing food but at the end of the day the beach is our sanctuary. Here are few tips from our wanderlusting best friends on their journey from cobblestones to the sandy beaches of the Amalfi coast.

    1. START YOUR DAYS EARLY SO YOU HAVE TIME TO ENJOY YOUR MORNING ESPRESSO WITHOUT THE CROWDS.

    2. WISH FOR POSITIVE VIBES AT THE TREVI FOUNTAIN.

    3. CHANNEL YOUR INNER GLADIATOR. BOOK PRIVATE TOURS FOR THE VATICAN AND COLOSSEUM THROUGH AIRBNB EXPERIENCE SO YOU CAN GET MORE OF A CULTURAL EXPERIENCE RATHER THAN A HISTORY LESSON.

    4. PLAN ON A LOT OF WALKING. LACE UP WITH YOUR MOST COMFORTABLE SHOES.

    5. DITCH THE MAP. YOU'LL STUMBLE UPON ARCHITECTURE, ART AND MAYBE SOME HIDDEN GEMS. DOWNLOAD THE MYTAXI APP TO TAKE YOU BACK AT THE END OF YOUR EXPLORATIONS.

    6. MAKE SURE TO CARBO LOAD. ALL THE WALKING MAKES YOU HUNGRY AND ITALY HAS SOME OF THE MOST AMAZING FOOD. TREAT YOURSELF WITH SOME SPAGHETTI POMODORO AND A GLASS (OR BOTTLE) OF WINE.

    Now that you've experienced the history, culture and culinary delights of Rome, it's time for a beach getaway to Amalfi wear the water is crystal blue, the views are breathtaking and the beach freely spirit is in full effect.

    7. FIND A BEACH SIDE VILLA WITH A VIEW. THIS ISN'T VERY DIFFICULT IN AMALFI, WE STAYED IN A SMALL TOWN CALLED MINORI WHICH WAS A BLOCK AWAY FROM THE WATER.

    8. EMBRACE THE BEACH BUM LIFE. AMALFI IS QUITE PEACEFUL SO TAKE DOWN TIME AND SPEND ALL DAY BY THE WATER.

    9. FREE YOUR FEET. TRAVELING THROUGH MAJOR CITIES CAN BE EXCITING BUT ALSO EXHAUSTING. NOW THAT YOU MADE IT TO THE BEACH, PACK YOUR SHOES BACK IN YOUR SUITCASE AND LIVE IN YOUR FLIP FLOPS FROM HERE ON OUT. THE AMALFI BEACHES ARE VERY ROCKY BUT LUCKILY, WE HAVE LOTS OF WATER FRIENDLY STYLES. ;)

    10. SHARE A GELATO (AND MAYBE A VESPA RIDE) WITH YOUR BEST FRIEND. THE STREETS AREN'T AS CROWDED AS IN THE CITY SO IF YOU'RE FEELING ADVENTUROUS, RENT A SCOOTER AND CRUISE THE COASTLINE WITH YOUR BESTIE.

    11. HOPEFULLY YOU DON'T GET SEASICK. BOATING IS BY FAR THE BEST MODE OF TRANPORTATION IN AMALFI. WATER FERRIES ARE CHEAPER AND QUICKER TO GET AROUND THAN BUS OR TAXI, PLUS THEY ARE MORE FUN AND FREEING.

     

     

    MASON HO'S PARTY TIPS

    MASON HO'S PARTY TIPS

    Mason Ho, pro surfer and Hawaii native, embodies fun party spirit and there's nothing more fun than a party. The holiday season brings a lot of festivities so to prepare we caught up with Mason to get the inside on his party tips and tricks.

    Q. Would you rather host a party or go to a party?

    I’d rather go to the party so I could blow the place up and dip out. I’m not ready to be a host yet.

    Q. What was the last party you went to?

    My friend’s house by Rocky Point.

    Q. How many people would you have at an ideal party?

    Depends on what kind of party you want. You could easily have a fun party with 2 people or thousands.

     Q. Beach party or house party?

    Most house parties in Hawaii are right on the beach so you can get the best of both worlds. Those are my favorite.

    Q. What’s your ideal party food?

    Fish and poi

     Q. Open invite or friends only?

    Open invite if you plan on blowing the place to smithereens.

     Q. How do you get the word out about your party?

    Tell everybody you see to spread the word ...and ask your sponsors to blow it up.

     Q. Best party companion?

    Mick Fanning’s sandals are the best so you can crack open your chicks beer without fumbling trying to do it on a lighter or something.

     Q. Do you have any party tricks?

    Not sure if it’s a party trick but I always end up going surfing during the party.

    Watch this video for some amazing moments in the most transformational power we have access to, LEWATLE in translation (ocean) in the indigenous Solo Language. Using the surfboard as a vehicle for WAVES OF CHANGE, Reef is donating all proceeds of auctioned surfboards ridden from this project back to Waves for Change and a better life for the indigenous people of South Africa.
