Alex Beh is as full of laughs as his head is of hair. Basically a Pantene commercial of humor, we're talking big, full volume, possibly just got out bed like that, slash, no, actually just got out of bed like that and spent six minutes in front of the mirror styling to make sure said situation was perfectly secured in place, kind of laughs. A respectable amount of tousled humor mind you, not full on Robert Pattison a la five years ago - because that shit was just out of control. But we digress. Alex is funny. He likes to write and say things that are funny. And if you watch them, you just might laugh.

Kassia Meador has got the whole Endless Summer thing oh so enviously down pat. A more than rad surfer, she splits her time between catching waves and designing for them with her collection of almost too cool to just wear to the beach wetsuits. Her new tie dye line of full length suits? Obsessed.
Former freelance journalist Alisa Gould Simon is a poster child for the power of the entrepreneurial spirit. The former Co-CEO of Pose, a fashion tech platform boasting over 2 million users, these days she's killing it as a consultant / adviser to a variety of startups. Keep doing you, girl.
