ABOUT THE BRANDS... Tired of seeing the SAME big (over-sold?) brands, in ALL the surf magazines? Ready for the new Roxy to emerge? Us too! That’s why we are happy to bring you summer fashions from the emerging brands of the surf industry. The brands created by lovers of surf and the lifestyle that accompanies our sport, who are digging deep in their artistic souls, to bring you fashions that compliment your lifestyle, trick out your wardrobe, and help you define your new, summer style. Now, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so if you see something you like, we encourage you to visit their websites and check out all the other great styles they offer. They’re ready to serve you... they WANT your business, and it’s up to all of us, to support these up-and-coming companies, giving them a chance to be the next big REAL surf brand! WE THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING THEM! MODEL TALK... Because we realize that not every woman is a size 2, and most of our readers are active women that appreciate seeing strong, healthy women showcasing clothing that can be worn in daily life and not just on the runway, we choose models that are athletic and strong water women and men. They come from all walks of life and occupations, and patiently dedicate their energy and time... taking time off from their “regular jobs” to be a model for a day, to make this issue’s fashion come alive for you. We hope you enjoy WSSM’s (unique?) and realistic approach to beach & lifestyle fashion. A special thank you to: Dan Olson, Megan Bridgeman, Katie Cousin, Holly Hino, John Olson, Kyle Eckstrom, Robbie Guht, Deborah Anne Olson, John Helm, Paul Goo, Trisha Edwards, Stan & Debbie Olson, for an amazing job well done!”
