I Believe in the Good Things Coming!

Good morning, 2015. Happy New Year of promise!

Even though my husband David shot and put this particular edit together a year ago, it still holds true and this Nahko and Medicine for the People song resonates today more than ever.

“I believe in the good things coming”, Nakho sings. It’s a song that truly is medicine for the people. It’s been with me for the past few days and echoed in my mind once more when I woke up this morning.

This gorgeous selection of ocean, waves, surfing, portrait, fashion, landscape, sunsets and beaches were shot mostly in and around our beautiful home of Ventura.

Enjoy, listen and be inspired by the lyrics and eye candy.

Luz Del Mundo by David Pu’u. Music: Nakho Bear

 

May your new year be inspiring, wet and wonderful!

Love,
Donna

Triangle Love

My husband is right. I really need to start blogging more. I’ve been posting a lot on my Instagram and Facebook (@Bettybelts¬† follow me!) but not very much at all right here on my very own website. And there is so much to share, to fill you in on.

For starters how about some pretty pictures of some of my new designs? I’ve got a plethora of them in my upcycled surfboard resin collection.

The “Tay” triangle collection is my current favorite. This design is named after Taylor Bruynzeel of Team Betty. Yes, our very own surf team! (I name many of my designs after team riders and other women who inspire me.)

Taylor just turned 17 and she’s quite a talented stepper on the waves. I’ve taken to calling her “Switchstance Tay” because she’s so good at riding both ways and switching stance several times on any given ride. she’s a joy to surf with, always smiling when she glides past you perched on the nose. She’s one to watch! Check out her website and follow her on instagram @taylorbruynzeel .
