Surfing Daydreaming

Last long weekend I saw a number of friends head off to La Union, Zambales, or Baler to surf. Alas, I staycationed in Manila and the only surfing I did was on my laptop. *sniffle* I wish I had gone surfing for real, though. It’s been years since I actually surfed in the ocean (Club Manila East wave pool is nice, but not as romantic as the real thing).

Also, I’d just been sent a Quiksilver watch fresh off the Spring/Summer 2012 line. Maybe I’ve just watched Blue Crush one too many times but wearing this watch makes me feel like I’m Michelle Rodriguez in the movie.

This is the Quiksilver Speedway. It has an analog clockface which I love because it’s so retro, but also has the digital time on display. Its plastic case and polyurethane strap make for a hardy and rugged construction, so if it gets banged up on the coral it won’t look too much the worse for wear. It’s also got a chronograph with lap operation, an hourly chime, a built-in calendar, and a temperature reading.

While this watch doesn’t look out of place on this internet surfer’s wrist, I really do need to schedule a surf trip with the gals just so I can once again embody being a real surfer chick. (I can dream, can’t I?)

Check out the rest of the new Quiksilver and Roxy watches at Quiksilver stores in Alabang Town Center-The Gardens, Abreeza Mall Davao, Nuvali Solenad 2, SM North EDSA-The Annex, SM Cebu, and Harbour Point Subic. You can also keep track of promos on the Quiksilver Philippines Facebook page.
