This San Diego knockout lets us into her life for some one-on-one, poolside.
TheNug (N): So Lindsay, what are you into? Where did you grow up?
Lindsay (L): I’m a San Diego girl through and through. I grew up on the beach and camping all over the West Coast and Baja, enjoying everything this amazing place has to offer. I love surfing, hiking, rollerblading on the boardwalk, biking and having bonfires with my amigos.
(N): What are you up to?
(L): I’m always up to something. ;)
Im getting on a plane in a few hours to head back to Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands to meet with Richard Branson and his team to consult on his nature conservation program on the island. My company has been doing branding and consulting for several nature organizations over the past few years and being a nature lover myself, this is really a dream opportunity to work with one of my idols!
I also have a lifestyle blog that is all about traveling, giving back and living more happy!
(N): It looks like you travel a ton. What is the most exotic place you’ve been?
(L): I have been to a lot of exotic places including India, Thailand, Cambodia, Taiwan, Peru, Costa Rica, Colombia and the Caribbean. I continue to seek out Indiana Jones adventures around the world!
(N): Any crazy travel stories?
(L): I was volunteering at an orphanage in Peru and brought a bunch of gifts and cake on Christmas and then trekked the Inca Trail through the Andes Mountains for five days to Machu Picchu. It was a magical experience.
(N): What's the best thing about modeling?
(L): Anytime I get to travel and meet new people I am happy.
(N): Turn ons?
(L): I love adventure and spontaneity.
(N): Turn offs?
(L): Laziness and a lack of drive. I need someone who is motivated and inspires me and most importantly can keep up!
(N): Any famous crushes?
(L): Jason Mraz is super cool. He is a talented singer and guitarist as well as a humanitarian and uses his celebrity to be a positive influence and spread the message of love, peace and living up to your potential. He also is a surfer, nature lover and lives here in San Diego and is an active member of our hip little community. What up Jason!
(N): Perfect night out?
(L): I love live music, dancing and getting high with my friends! Good food is always enjoyed as well, of course.
(N): Favorite Drink?
(S): I don’t really like alcohol so I always order ice tea or a fresh squeezed juice!
(N): Favorite food?
(L): Mexican! It is the food of my people. (San Diegans!)
(N): Guilty pleasures?
(L): I love eating chocolate in bed while I watch The Simpsons.
(N): Bare bottoms or bikini bottoms?
(L): Bare bottom? Might be painful on a surfboard. Bikini babe!
(N): Who are you listening too right now?
(L): Vokab Kompany, a local group from here in San Diego that is one of the best live shows I have ever seen.
(N): Festival or Nightclub?
(L): Festivals for sure! I have been to Coachella four years, Bonnaroo, SXSW and my favorite so far, Life Is Beautiful in Las Vegas. I love the energy at festivals, the community feeling and how people seem to really get into the spirit for days, whereas nightclubs are crowded, dark and a drunken madness that only lasts a few hours.
(N): Best job you’ve been on as a model?
(L): When I modeled for my friends’ company, Irie Ride (some of the photos are shown) on the beach here in San Diego. I was shooting with one of my best friends, the weather was perfect, the water was warm and we were drinking mimosas and laughing the whole time having a blast. It didn’t even feel like work and the photos are some of the best I have taken! Working with friends is always the best.
(N): Any random fun facts that most people don't know?
(L): Most people don’t know that I smoke weed. Surprise!
(N): Favorite time of day to smoke?
(L): I love enjoying a toke watching a gorgeous sunset over the ocean. And 4:20 of course! I always try to pause for the cause.
(N): Blunts or Bongs?
(L): Vape Pen! It is so convenient, clean and inconspicuous.
(N): Indica or Sativa?
(L): Sativa! I am so active and have so much going on all the time, I love the energy and creativity that sativa gives me. It actually balances me out and often times I get high before working on a blog or a brainstorming session. I'm a very productive stoner.
(N): Ever tried oils (dabs)?
(L): I have not.
(N): Want to give any shout outs?
(L): Shout out to my dad, Ranger Randy, for being a badass single dad, raising me to be so cool, to love rock n' roll, to respect and protect nature, for teaching me to surf and camp and for being my favorite smoking buddy.
