When I saw the first photos of this little Waikiki photo shoot from Daeja Fallas herself [via Instagram] I couldn’t help feeling like I was in intermediate school again. I felt the same exact way I did when I decided to start surfing. I was completely inspired by Roxy’s ad campaigns and wanted to wear a hula skirt at the very birthplace of surfing. I totally bought into that whole lifestyle. I would be lying if I told you I didn’t feel the same way right now. Here I am feeling like a 12 year old girl.. ready to buy a $75 beater surfboard and brave the whitewash. I might even have to go to Queens tomorrow for good measure. But we’ll see.
I love seeing images like this. It even makes me a little envious and a part of me wishes I was there with a lei around my neck too! Which means the photographs were depicted perfectly. Rightfully so. I recommend checking out the rest of DF’s photographs. She’s an amazing photographer with a unique [but relatable] point of view.
For those of you dreaming of an endless summer in Waikiki.. find it here.
