Trends from Down Under I The Beach Ritual

I via I

In Australia, going to the beach is more of a daily ritual than it is an event or special occasion. Much like the gym, Aussies try to carve out 30 minutes to an hour each day for a tan, a surf or a quick dip in the ocean. There is something about the sun, the sand and the salt water that helps us reconnect to each other and to ourselves.

Due to the routined nature of our beach outings, we believe that less is always more. There is no need to lug around a big esky (cooler) full of drinks, beach chairs or an umbrella. The flexibility of being able to beach hop all day long, or just quickly pop by is simply more important. Pack a towel, your favourite hat, an oversized button-up, thongs (flip-flops), some sunscreen and some tanning oil into a bag and leave it in your car so that you are always ready to go. I am assuming that you are already wearing swimmers under your clothes and sunnies on your head, as most Aussies would be, just in case.

As the winter months approach down under, the most committed beach goers will continue their daily surf or swim, but for the most part, we will be forced to mourn our beloved ritual until it begins to warm back up again. So in the meantime, here are my top 5 Australian summer essentials. Please indulge me, as I attempt to live vicariously through you, all (American) summer long.
