Beach Hat Hack Attack

One of my best friends has finally gotten me into wearing hats when I’m on the beach and when I surf. I’ve had skin cancer twice, once on my face, once on my ear. When I had it removed on my face, they sent me to a plastic surgeon. I remember seeing all the pics on the waiting room wall of various women with cartoon boobs. And after my surgery, I would constantly get emails about “enhancements” available. Yikes.

Guess they know nothing about surfers. Every scrape, bruise, stitch and staple goes up on Instagram, and scars are worn with pride. “Leave that scar! I’VE got a story to tell!”

My stylin’ hat

Whateves. Alls I know is that any surgery hurts, it’s freakin’ expensive, and it always seems to keep me out of the water during a fun swell. So, got myself a nice beachy straw hat to match my Jams that I don’t want to get crushed like my other unfortunate hats.

Yep, this is what happened to my other beachy hats

So, I grabbed a plastic pants hanger from the closet (like you can pick up at any Big Box store), shoved the clips closer together, and used BOTH clips to hang the hat. This will reduce the stress of hanging it up by one point only, AND the belt hook even holds a couple of hair ties that I constantly seem to need. Bonus.

I think the Shakers hung up their surf gear like this…’Tis A Gift To Be Simple..

Gotta watch out not to get tan anymore, especially as I’m getting older. I’ll be sporting a hat, rash guard and leggings to surf I guess….no tan lines.

Now that FB is dead, will tan lines come back in fashion?!?
