When you need a good one, head over to the guys at 6/5/4 – a lifestyle store with clothes, surf gear and other cool products. These guys loves to surf… and drink coffee in their cool espresso bar… and eat Acai bowls all the time… just like I do when I’m in L.A.
Warning! This is an old post that I’m posting again… just because its worth reading again, the article i mean.
I read this article the other day and i thick its great! The now Santa Barbara local Kelly Slater talks about his food philosophy and the way he fuels his body with clean foods. Kelly Slater (9-Time ASP champion) and one of our biggest pro surfers of all time is still in the game at age 42 and he is crazy about chia seeds. Also, check out his Insta account, he is sharing pics from all over the world. Mostly places with huge waves.
“Eating clean to me means not eating too many different types of foods all at once. I also try and eat a wide variety of the same nutrient. For instance, if you are into eating protein, I don’t think you want to always eat the same protein. You want to vary the types of amino acids you are eating. I’ve been eating chia for a number of years, but last year I was working out with a friend in Hawaii who said you can soak chia in coconut water overnight and eat it for breakfast. He said it has all the essential fats (Omega 3) you need and the amino acids. So I started doing that, then added berries and some nuts. It has become a staple for me“
I just picked up the latest issue of C Magazine (California Style) and came a cross an article about this couple, the legendary big wave surfer Laird Hamilton and his wife, the former volleyboll pro Gabby Reece. Their approach to life is very inspiring and i met both of them a few month ago at Malibu Farm Cafe during a photoshoot-lunch. Sitting down at a table, enjoying Helens delicious food and talk surf, Hawaii and health with these too was fun. Gabby is a amazon goddess and she has such a presence and a way about her that’s very appealing. And Laird couldn’t be nicer. Remember that he was shooting the Malibu pier during the huge swells we had this fall?
