Private Icon: Blue Crush

Looking back at the style in the 2002 surfer film.

Can you believe it's been 18 years since Kate Bowsworth invented surfing? The time flies. Bosworth, along with Michelle Rodriguez, Sanoe Lake, and Mika Boorem graced the big screen as kickass surfer girls back in 2002 with Blue Crush, and the film is just as cool all these years later. Whether you've picked up surfing as a quarantine hobby or you're more of a lay-on-the-beach type, Blue Crush is full of summer style inspo.

Kate Bosworth's character Anne Marie spent the film dressed like a pro in surf brands like Billabong.

Almost two decades later and Billabong is still a go-to for surf essentials, like rashguards and wetsuits.

You don't need to be waking up at dawn to hit the waves to wear this itty-bitty bikini bottom, though more power to those who are.

The longer the board short, the more professional you look, imo.
