Cushe Ambassador Sophie Hellyer recently took a quick trip to Dubai with Lynx to try out the worlds most advanced man-made watersports facility – a completely programmable surf pool with six settings, where even the wave height can be adjusted from 1ft up to 11ft. Sophie’s fleeting trip was just long enough for her to spend a little time sunbathing and get a few perfect waves in.
Aside from enjoying surfing in this super technical wavepool in Dubai’s blistering desert heat, Sophie captured her session on film by mounting Go Pro cameras on her board, and you can check out Sophie’s moves on the Lynx Youtube channel.
The WADI Adventure resort in Dubai sounds like the perfect Cushe destination – it’s also home to whitewater rafting, climbing and kayaking facilities, so all we need now is a Cushe trip back to Dubai! Sophie gives us her top five things she plans to do next time she heads to the UAE…
- Surf my little heart out
- Relax and sunbathe by the pool
- SKY DIVE!
- Check out all the other activities at WADI Adventure, like white water rafting and high ropes
- Have a night out in Dubai…
As a Cushe ambassador, Sophie has already enjoyed a trip to Costa Rica to surf and shoot photos for the brand’s SS13 footwear lookbook, and has her very own Cushe shoe in next Summer’s collection called the Cushe Slipper Hellyer – a light, comfortable surfy slip-on in a colourful Moroccan style canvas. The Cushe Slipper has a moulded EVA sole with Cushe’s signature honeycomb grip and is made from super-light materials, so you can barely feel it on your foot. Perfect for anyone who likes to travel light and stay comfortable, the Cushe Slipper is also available in the brand’s current Summer collection in a range of relaxed, surfy blues and sandy beach tones, perfect for keeping cool on hot summer-surf days.
