Reef Surfer – Beach Bound

I know that the Reef Surfer flip flops aren’t really made for and worn exclusively by surfers. I get that that the image printed across the flip flops of a silhouette of a surfer shredding it on a curling wave is a bit over the top. But I don’t care. These flip flops don’t take themselves too seriously so neither will I. They’re fun; in the same way that silicone can be fun. You know they aren’t real but sometimes that’s ok. Similarly, they’re nice to look at, but feel a little unnatural when you make first contact.

The ink used to print the sunny California surfer dude image makes for a very slick footbed. It’ll catch you off guard as they slip, almost completely off your feet, with the first step. But once you know the risk it’s not such a big price to pay to be able to spend a few weeks on the beach in these fun-loving flip flops.

The rubber straps are a bit too loose and the best option when strolling along the beach; the water just rolls right off them. They won’t absorb the sea and turn into sand magnets as you make your way from the shore to the beach-side bar. The traction excels on the beach and pool-side. Honestly, you really can’t expect much more from these good-time flip flops. They’re not the flip flops you’d bring home to meet your parents but are exactly what you want from a bleached blonde, silicone enhanced, summer fling.
