Raised in the Virgin Islands and now living in Kauai and Malibu, Gabrielle Reece, 42—fitness guru, former model and beach volleyball champion—is all about surf and sand. "Being in the water is such an important part of life for people here," says Reece, who is married to pro surfer Laird Hamilton and has two children, Reece, 8 (left), and Brody, 4. "For others, the fashion is about trying to get a piece of blue sky or the ocean or coconut trees for themselves."
