Behind the Brand
Two months into my freshman year of college in San Diego in 2010, I found myself in a class with a tall, green-eyed surfer. He was fresh off a flight from Bali where he'd planned an endless summer before being accepted to the only school he had considered. (The #3 surf college in the US.)
We were two young, reckless, and overly tan kids who spent our days fishing, surfing, and riding our moped to In-N-Out between classes.
Our first summer together, he invited me to stay with his family on Oahu where we adventured around the island for three months.
A few weeks in, I came across a little shop selling Brazilian bikinis in Waikiki and decided to give them a try. It took some serious tanning to catch my booty up from those full coverage Roxy bottoms I'd packed but I never looked back.
In August, we returned to school where I realized my cheeky bottoms were way smaller than most California beaches had seen at the time. There was no going back to those full bottoms though and Midori was born out of my college dorm room after a failed attempt to sew my own.
We opened our first office in 2015 and are now working from a lazy little beach town in Encinitas, California. That tall, green-eyed surfer and I got married in Lanikai on Oahu in 2016 and welcomed our baby girl in 2019.
Today you'll find me playing with our sweet June at our local beach, out riding our horse Bonita, or lounging under the sun in the backyard with a great book.
Outside of my family and hobbies, I live and breathe bikinis and am so thankful to wake up excited to work and serve amazing babes like YOU each day.
