The Surftorialist - Rhea Cortado

You know how you go to a website and all the little pop up windows and descriptions are talking to you? That’s Rhea’s day job — the written voice behind brands. She also shops, reads and converses an unreasonable and obsessive amount, and reports on said discovered personalities, culture, and trends in the fashion industry. While traveling to coastal paradises around the globe where watching the sunset is a daily ritual, she was inspired to start her blog,, as a personal project to share the stories of stylish creators that also schedule their days based on the tides and swell. She lives in Venice Beach, California and doesn’t do winter.

We met up with her a couple weeks back for a hike down to the beach to learn a little more about a day in the life of this sea loving lady.
