How To Rule The Beach: things to remember

Do you want to be King or Queen of the shores? Then you’ll need to remember these buzzwords – all part of Malibu’s A to Z guide to having the Best Summer Ever!

The first episode of this year’s Malibu’s Best Summer Ever project is all about learning how to surf like a pro, look the part, and catch it all on camera. 

After spending an immense day doing all these things, our four fun YouTubers – Mike, Maddie, Ceara and Tom – picked two letters from the alphabet that stood for their highlights; S for Standing on a surfboard and H for Hitting the beach.

And now, we've put together a list of words starting with the very same letters for you guys; take note of these points and you'll soon be a Beach Legend…

 

S is for… 

Slang

Shred, stoked, shakka – these are all words you Need. To. Know. Well, if pro surfer Shawn Dollar uses them, you know they’re cool. 

Style

Keep it suave, keep it real, and keep it old-school by sourcing all your attire from a chic vintage shop. Think: bright shorts, floral print skirts and oversized shades. 

Skills

Whether it’s licking your camera lens to keep water marks at bay, or pushing up on a surfboard in style, you’ll need to learn some raw skills to cement your reputation as a beach aficionado.

Snaps 

From sunsets to selfies; Action camera sticks to drones… the ways in which to document your time on the beach are endless. Go capture your adventure!

 

H is for…

Headgear 

Must be worn. Day and night. From Fedora hats to flowery headbands –don’t forget to keep a cool head in the sun and look dreamy under the stars.

Hanging out 

Whether you’re kicking back together on the sand or huddling around a campfire with your pals, you ain’t no beach legend without a posse.

Heat 

From the sun’s intense rays to the sizzling flames where you toast your marshmallows; time to lap up the holiday hotness.

Happy hour

What better way to celebrate watching the sun sink into the sea than with a sweet, ice-cold glass of Malibu and pineapple? Cheers to THAT.
