Rip Curl My Bikini: Behind the scenes by Cos We Can

Check out these three great video shorts produced by Cos We Can; the creative duo of Clare Plueckhahn and Fran Derham. Promoting Rip Curl’s My Bikini product range, starring female surfer/model Alana Blanchard & Alejandra Guilmant. "You never get to really see Alana’s personality — but as we were stranded on Namotu Island, Fiji during the Rip Curl photo shoot we had a lot of time to get to know her."

The crew got stuck in a cyclone! "It was crazy. Everyone went a bit nuts – which is always exciting when your task is to put together a behind the scenes video for the campaign photo shoot. However, before the sun went AWOL we managed to get some pretty spectacular footage. Learn about the inspiration behind the design of the collection… or simply oggle the beautiful Alana Blanchard & Alejandra Guilmant modeling them!"

The bikinis are amazing. As a surf photographer constantly swimming for hours in the surf it’s really hard to find a good bikini.
