Summer is officially here, and with it comes long days, cold drinks, and, of course, soaring temps.
And while you may feel like spending everyday inside escaping the sun, we believe that the summer weather can be the perfect excuse to get outdoors and find yourself a new adventure.
So to help you shake things up this season, we've compiled five of our favorite Maui-inspired ideas on how to get outside, have some fun, and successfully beat the heat this summer.
5. Picnic at the Beach
Who doesn't love kicking back by the water? Setting up a righteous beachside spread is a classic warm weather idea that the whole family can enjoy.
Fuel a whole day's worth of fun at the beach by preparing easy-to-eat meals and snacks like sandwiches and baked goods that can be enjoyed straight from the cooler, or at room temperature.
Bring along some good tunes and a quality beach umbrella, and you've got yourself a great way to make some lasting summer memories with your favorite people.
Stay extra cool and comfortable all day long in our premium quick-dry Women's Boardshorts, designed with lightweight fabrics that provide the best combination of strength & strength for any activity.
4. Hike to a Waterfall
See some beautiful views and snap a few stunning shots by taking a calming nature walk to the nearest waterfall for a dip!
Walking is a great way to stay active during the summer, and as a reward for your hard work, treat yourself to a refreshing swim at the end of your journey.
Make sure to bring some comfy hiking shoes, a pair of binoculars, and of course your newest pair of buttery soft Maui Rippers boardshorts in your favorite print so you can go from the walkway to the waterway without skipping a step (or having to change your shorts).
As a bonus, miss the heavy crowds by trekking out in the early morning or late evening for an even more exclusive outdoor experience.
3. Cool Things Down With Something Sweet
Whether you prefer to surf the web or the waves this summer, don't forget to treat yourself! While you're out and about, pop into your local snack shack to pick up a delicious fresh fruit smoothie, an extra-colorful shaved ice, or a Instagram-worthy acai bowl.
This summer standard is the perfect way to not only cool down, but also try something new, and support your neighborhood small business. Make all your seaside adventures even more seamless by wrapping things up in our vibrant women's sarong wrap skirts, available in two flattering lengths for women of all sizes.
2. Get Your Fins On
Snorkeling is a safe and environmentally-friendly summer activity that is easy to learn and even easier to love. Get more in touch with nature this summer by strapping on some fins and diving into all the beauty the ocean has to offer. You never know what you'll run into when you're exploring the ocean!
Be sure to not disturb the corals and sea life, and do your part by using only reef-safe sunscreen, that way the sea's wonders can be preserved for generations to come.
Or, you can cut down on your sunscreen use entirely, and get increased UV protection by rocking a pair of our long-length 9" Women's Boardshorts or our 24" Extra Long Men's Boardshorts on your day in the sun.
1. Go for a Cruise
An oldie, but a goodie.
Summer and bike rides go together like two pieces of a puzzle.
If you have a little extra daylight on your hands, hop on your 12-speed and enjoy the summer breeze, see some new sights, or just cruise wherever the day takes you, all without breaking the bank (or a sweat).
And if you really want to keep things short and sweet, bring along a pair of our modern 18 or 19" Men's Boardshorts, designed for premium performance and ultimate comfort, and equipped with an extra large zipper pocket for secure storage while you're on the go.
No matter how you choose to spend your summer, make sure to make the most of it!
