The Happiest Hour with Team Roxy at SeaLegs Wine Bar

Last night, the ROXY team riders took a much-needed break with amazing food and tasty wine to relax after a long day of heats. SeaLegs, our favorite local wine bar in Huntington Beach, invited our team to serve as guest ‘wintenders’ for the night as part of their celebrity bartending series during the US Open to help raise awareness for Boarding for Breast Cancer. B4BC is a non-profit foundation dedicated to providing education, prevention and support programs for young people and the action sports community at large.

4x world champion surfer Lisa Andersen led the charge behind the bar, serving up wine to all of the fans who came to the event to meet her.  Rosy, Monyca, Bruna and Stephanie also came out to support the cause!

Get Ready for Bali’s Big Eco Weekend!

We believe that every ROXY woman wants to do her part to help protect and care for the environment on and off the beach. The Quiksilver and ROXY family has teamed up with Coca-Cola and Garuda International to host a weekend dedicated to educating the public about the environmental challenges facing Bali and how we can work together globally to protect our beaches both near and far.

Bali Big Eco Weekend

This year, Bali’s Big Eco weekend will be held at Legian beach with environmental and beach activities for everyone.  Since 2008, the Bali beach clean-up program has employed a crew of 75 locals who help keep Bali’s beaches clean everyday—from the Kuta, Kedonganan, Jimbaran, Seminyak, and Legian beaches. Due to the efforts of volunteers and the local community, over 24 million tons of trash has been collected and 80,000 sea turtle eggs have been protected!

Bali Big Eco Weekend

Our team riders Sally Fitzgibbons, Kelia Moniz, Bruna Schmitz and Rosy Hodge will be joining us in Bali, helping us clean up the beaches and educating the public about the environmental challenges facing Bali. 

Tune in to Facebook, Twitter & Instagram this weekend to see what we’re doing each day and what you can do to help keep Bali’s beaches clean! #KeepBaliClean

Official ASP commentator Rosy Hodge makes her way down to the #ROXYpro finals – Get ready to tune in Live

Official ASP commentator Rosy Hodge makes her way down to the #ROXYpro GOLD COAST Women's Finals

The only action isn’t happening in the surf, it’s also on the beach where ROXY team rider, former CT competitor and ROXY Outdoor Fitness athlete turned ultimate reporter, Rosy Hodge, is taking the charge as one of the official ASP commentators and the only female in the ranks! Go Rosy!

Breaking down the boards this week, asking he tough questions after some competitive heats and everything in between keeps Rosy a busy girl and someone we absolutely love seeing share her thoughts.

We caught up with Rosy on her regular route to the #ROXYpro Gold Coast and asked her about what she’s looking forward to most this season and how the first stop of the World Tour has been so far.

Official ASP commentator Rosy Hodge makes her way down to the #ROXYpro GOLD COAST Women's Finals

 

How’s it being the only girl in a group of guys?
Its pretty funny. I’ve worked with everyone before and its a bunch of people that I respect so its easy to work with them and its been pretty entertaining.

What was the word on the street about the women’s surfing after Day 1 at the ROXY Pro?
Everyone was calling the girls performance the best they have ever seen and there were a lot of comments about how all of the girls are the ‘complete’ package. I think this is going to be an exciting year for the girls with the prize money increase and the new stops on tour.

What stop(s) are you most looking forward to in 2014?
J Bay for sure! I love being on the Goldy at this time and I think the first stop on tour can be one of the most exciting because of the build up and anticipation around it.

We’ve heard you’ve had a couple great surfing days so far. Tell us about the BEST wave you’ve has this week?
Haha I have snuck in some sneaky sessions. I think the day they called the girls off after the 1/4s was the best. We had a commentators cup and I actually found a good rhythm and got some waves in the thick crowd. Best wave is any wave I get to myself out there:)

PS. We’re crowing a ROXY Pro winner today. Get ready to tune in here at 12:00pm AEST (local time).

The ROXY Pro GOLD Coast Quarterfinals Recap

Recap from the #ROXYPro Quarterfinals

The quarterfinals kicked off today on the Gold Coast with ROXY team rider ‘s Stephanie Gilmore, Bianca Buitendag and Sally Fitzgibbons  all in the mix! The call was made bright and early for the #ROXYpro and after a day like yesterday you could feel the excitement in the air.

Local favorite, Stephanie Gilmore, shined today against yesterday’s standout, Courtney Conlogue, in the first of 4 heats run today at the ROXY Pro Gold Coast. The biggest upset was in the 3rd quarter final heat when ASP Rookie Bianca Buitendag took to the water and dominated against number 2 in the world, Tyler Wright. A beautiful display of back-hand surfing saw a shock elimination of last 2013 ROXY Pro Champion.

Recap from the #ROXYPro Quarterfinals

The next call will be made by the ASP at 6:30 AM (local time) tomorrow, so stay tuned…we could be crowning the 2014 ROXY Pro Champ! In the meantime, check out what else we’ve been up to on the Goldy!
