Do you know who made your jeans or where they came from?

Thanks to Fibershed’s “Grow Your Jeans” campaign, I do know who made my jeans and where they came from…

And the lovable and meticulous Daniel DiSanto measured twice, designed and sewed a pair just for me at his studio in Alameda.

While this is sadly not me… this is how happy I look when I put on my new sustainable/local/custom made jeans… now I just need some tops to go with them…

Surf Mama is Born…

Leslie Santos, a single mother living in San Francisco with her four-year-old daughter, wanted a place for girls, women, mothers and children, who are interested in surfing, sunshine, laughter and good company, to come together. When she couldn’t find such a place, she created her own and a few months of planning later SF Surf Mama was born.

Today we celebrated this new community with a SF Surf Mama Launch Party in Bolinas. The party included a welcome gift package, a yummy lunch, surf lessons, and of course a dynamic community of women. We didn’t find the sun, but we did find lots of laughter and waves perfect for all ages.

Here is a quick sneak peek of what you can expect when you join this brand new Surf Mama community…

If you are a girl, woman, mother or child, and you want to be a part of a fun surfing community then visit the SF Surf Mama facebook page to learn more.

Sorry fellas, I know these ladies are irresistible, but no guys allowed in this club.
