Continuing with my little series about shopping at our beach – today, I’ll tell you a bit about Namiko!
Namiko offers a range of ladies’ and men’s swim wear – cute bikinis and hot boardies along with wetsuits too! The textures and prints are great and were inspired by the textiles found in worldwide surfing destinations. Namiko also sells surfboards that sport beautiful designs and are a unique size – between a traditional short and long board in Second Life.
Keala Mimistrobell, Namiko’s owner+creator, is a long time Second Life’r who was a pioneer in the Second Life surfing community. She set out with a plan to not only support SL surfing but also pass on a portion of her profits to the real life Surfrider Foundation. The Surfrider Foundation, is a grass-roots organization founded in 1984, dedicated to keeping our oceans, waves and beaches protected and enjoyable. Namiko’s line of beach/swimwear work great for both surfing and diving, so be sure to check it out!
’til next time, keep surfing, shopping, and exploring!
