Billabong x John Frieda: Sun, Surf, Sand, Souls
A visual journey showing the soulful connection Billabong Women surfers have with the sun, surf and sand. The short film series is inspired by John Frieda's Beach Blonde Collection.
Products that give beach daydreamer's that sun-drenched, wave washed, sandy beach hair effect without the time spent at the beach.
Join us for days filled with road trips, surfing and adventures around the Australian Coast #BILLABONGxJohnFrieda
Bright, sun-drenched, summer days spent at the beaches of Byron Bay road tripping the Australian coast making pit stops at some of the most iconic breaks with four girls on a singular mission – to have a little fun and maybe find some surf.
We made the trek, packed tight with five or so boards in our 1980s Jeep Wagoneer from Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast down to Bryon Bay. Exchanging newfound impersonation talents by Felicity Palmateer with our playlists on full blast and forging new friendships along the way.
We surfed the iconic break, Snapper Rocks in Coolangatta, with Alessa Quizon prepping for her next stop on tour. Afterwards, we jetted down to the Point at Lennox and visited local garage sales, because naturally, shopping is always a must. We surfed Tallows and the Pass off Watagoes in Byron Bay and let our hair down for a bit while Josie Prendergast gave us the local treatment along with a hi/hello to everyone in Byron.
We threw on swimmers, switched to wetsuits, back to basics, stayed up late, got up early and did it all over again, changing from top knots to huns, beachy waves to braids, sea salt spray back to detangling conditioner. Day in and day out.
It was a consistent stream of stopping by the best bakeries for a little breaky (mostly Top Shop for some really good coffee and flat whites), letting Pacha Light bust out some epic dance moves and freestyling midday while wave watching Creed and Rasta. We hung with the locals, snapped pictures with some German tourists, smiled a lot, laughed until our bellies hurt, did some rain dancing at Killen Falls and surfed a little more. And we can’t forget about learning how to ‘Chuck a u-ey (aka make a u-turn) and somehow managed to always find our way.
As everyday ended we mastered the ‘I’ve Surfed All Day Look’, and as every pitstop began we gave our beach waves and upgrade with the help of John Frieda.
Stay tuned for more. #BILLABONGxJohnFrieda
