Basta Surf

Samantha August and her best friend, Emily Ford, set out on a mission to create a swim and lifestyle brand inspired by their world travels, Samatha’s surfing and their love of the ocean. Based in New York City, Basta Surf has grown from a few essential swimsuits to a luxury resort brand gracing the cover of Sports Illustrated and worn by celebrities such as Jessica Alba and Heidi Klum. Basta Surf prides itself on creating pieces that flatter every woman’s curves with luxury Italian fabrics, attention to detail and seamless fit. Samantha and Emily wholeheartedly believe in giving back, which is why a portion of every online sale is donated to Waves4Water, an organization providing clean water all over the world.
