Top tip(s) for being an eco conscious beach bum:

  • Packed lunches always win - we use our @stasherbags everytime we go to the beach
  • Natural zinc products (@back2nature)
  • Practice the #take3forthesea policy

Ideal weekend plan:

  • Friday: takeout Col'Cacchio pizza for sunset on Camps Bay beach
  • Saturday: GreenPoint parkrun, OZCFM for breakfast, coffee and picnic supplies. Home to assemble the picnic and collect our surf boards and beach essentials. Head down to Llandudno around lunch time and spend the rest of the day reading, listening to podcasts and lazing about followed by an evening of Film Club (either a surf film or Wes Anderson)
  • Sunday: morning paddle, smashed avocado at home, yoga, afternoon BBQ
