Behind the Tan Lines

posted by / News / February 9, 2010


It was an idea. A good idea. Idea A. But after a while we got idea B. Which was good too. But while trying to complete idea B, we ended up with X, then Y and what you finally see, which is obviously Z. Does that make sense? It doesn’t to us either, which is exactly what we were going for anyways. Viola!

It began in Malibu with a vision. An artistic vision. Cali cooperated beautifully. Perfecto! But then Puerto Rico called. And we answered. Vamos! A talented crew was assembled — one that included super hot model girls in 2010’s most fantastic swimsuit styles — and we trekked to Puerto Rico. The girls were perfect. They laughed. Smiled. Glowed. They were the kind of girls you hope to see when you look in from the surf. And they were in Puerto Rico with us. The air always smelled of rum punch. There was some rain, wild horses, bikinis and warmth. It was delicious. What follows is a preview. But remember you can go all the way with our very first stand-alone swimsuit issue, available on newsstands March 2, 2010. This is only a tease.

    Looks much better than last year when the “self-proclaimed” best photographer in the world, DDump, worked his anger and bitterness. What happened to him? I thought he was the best photographer in the world. Isn’t KARMA a beautiful thing.

    Totally agree with last year my friends….. much vomiting was necessary!! But on a side note….. do we actually have to go out and buy this thing on march 2nd??? Im a subscriber and the current contract does NOT say we get thirteen mags this year? rather perplexed.. added to which im in colorado and dont believe the standard news stands will be stocked with this gem!
