Welcome to Tahiti Summer 2013 #DAREYOURSELF

It’s Summer…time to heat things up in French Polynesian fashion! Tahiti called and your wave is waiting, so let’s ride (we did!).

The Roxy team including Sally Fitzgibbons, Kelia Moniz, LeeAnn Curren, Monyca Byrne Wickey, Justin Mauvin, and Bruna Schmitz boarded an easy 8 hour plane flight on Air Tahiti Nui from LAX and arrived to a warm flower-filled welcome at the Intercontinental Resort in French Polynesia (PS we can’t wait to show you our Polynesian Lei DIY vid).

What we woke up to was nothing short of a Roxy dream. We quickly boarded a boat and drifted off to the secluded island of Moorea, with bikinis in tow and sandals in hand, we got ourselves ready for a swim with some friends. After that, we dove right in with a lagoon full of stingrays (Kelia’s little buds), sharks and other sea friends that were welcoming and waiting.  Fast forward and we’re living on Tahiti Yacht catamarans a short ride away from one of the biggest and best offshore breaks in the world – Teahupoo. In true Polynesian fashion, we got the lay of the land with Raimana (aka the mayor of Tahiti) who showed us the best breaks, pineapple groves, sunset points, coral reefs, and most delicious Poisson Cru in town (yum!).

This is the Roxy way of life and we’re just starting to heat things up…Here’s some of our favorite pics from the beautiful Polynesian Island. #DAREYOURSELF to keep dreaming big…
