In collaboration with label.m's global campaign, We Are Two, we are sharing inspiring stories from all kinds of people, in all kinds of relationships - from a husband and wife, to best friends through to a dreaded haired dude and his pure love for surfing.
Our second story is with Beau Walker and his relationship with surfing. Here, he shares his beautiful relationship with the surfing and how he maintains that incredible (natural) hair.
You have incredible hair, is it natural?
Hahaha why thank-you :) I was adopted by the most incredible parents ever and look absolutely nothing like them!! However, I was left cards and descriptions of my birth parents.
My heritage is Half African (Nigerian) with a birth dad as dark as they come. The other half is a red headed Australian fair skin lady with Irish decent - so, my hair is a perfect combo of the two and completely natural. Even when I surf it naturally goes blonde.
Which products do you use to maintain your hair?
I’m obsessed with label.m soufflé, label.m Sea Salt Spray and label.m Protein Spray. They're perfect for hydration, hold and texture. I love them because it stops my dreds from going fluffy whilst maintaining that beachy look.
What is your idea of the perfect wave?
My idea of the perfect wave is down the line at my home break called “The Pass” a point break, when it’s 4 foot, peeling perfectly with a morning sunrise (so suns not in your eyes) and with bunch of your best mates watching on cheering as you line up for a guaranteed barrel!!
What are your top tips for aspiring surfers?
Practice getting up in one motion on the floor at home, on a foam board or on the grass, where ever you can! Also learn how to read the ocean; for example, where to sit, picking land marks, watching the tides and winds. But the best thing to do is simply ask people who know to help you out.
What is your biggest lesson from the ocean?
Stay humble, never take the environment for granted and stay in the present moment!
