Wave Chaser: Monika

Over the years, eco-friendly surf swimsuits and female surfers have gained popularity in the surf game. More and more women are sharing their passion for the outdoors, the environment and they are enticed to surfers. Just like Monik, a wave-obsessed person based in Bali where its a norm to chill under the sun with their longboard swimsuits or surfing bikinis.


I had a chat with Monika to find out about her views on surfing and of course a little in-between.

  • Tell me about yourself. Where do you live, what you do right now?

I try to follow the waves, mainly in Bali but traveling from time to time somewhere else where I can use my bikinis for surfing.

  • How do you learn to surf?

I learned it with friends, my first time I was cut by a fin from huge foam board, also I thought it would be easy but it took me a little while to really like it and enjoy it, even that I was happy using my foam board and on my longboard surf swimsuit all day.

And, I don't take surfing as a competition it is more like a meditation. I can be in the water without catching any waves just floating,  be in the moment for myself and I want to feel disconnected for a while.

  • Do you have a morning routine?  

Usually off to surf and (If I can) and then having coconut water on the beach     post-surf.

  • Favorite Ninefoot ecofriendly swimsuit outfit? Why? 

I like one piece surf swimsuit because I don't have to worry about anything :)

 Wax, sunscreen and towel.

In my surf closet, I own both, depends on the surf conditions and how I feel that day ;)

Taiwan and  Ecuador
