ROXY hearts NY! (Video)

ROXY and our team riders took NY by storm! Sally Fitzbiggons, Rosy Hodge, Lisa Andersen, Kassia Meador, Kelia Moniz, Monyca Byrne-Wickey, and Torah Bright came to NY for the Quiksilver Pro 2011.

A lot of fun times were had! Between the ROXY Beach House, Surf Camp, packed athlete signings, the Quiksilver Pro NY opening ceremony, the premiere of The Art of Flight, Fashion’s Night Out and the super session charity face-off between Sally Fitzgibbons and Quiksilver’s Steph Gilmore, we had a BALL! See our pictures here!

History was made, and we were happy to be able to bring a little bit of our west-coast surf culture to the right coast. Thanks Long Beach, NY!! <3

Watch the video, for our little love letter to NY!

Torah Bright Interviews Travis Rice @ The Art of Flight Premiere! (Video)

Travis Rice being interviewed by Torah Bright!

Friend of Roxy, Quiksilver rider Travis Rice, has a new snowboard movie due out September 2011. ‘The Art of Flight’ is a follow up from the producers of ‘That’s it, That’s All’ and features Travis Rice along with 8 of his snowboard buddies in a global trot from Jackson Hole, Alaska, Aspen, Patagonia and to British Columbia, to name a few. We asked (more like begged and pleaded) our brothers at Quiksilver to see if they could somehow help us get into this awesome premiere.

Apparently asking nicely worked for us, because we got our Roxy Team Riders into the premiere. Our very own snowboard queen Torah Bright, is a good friend of Travis. We armed her with a mic and sent her on the red carpet to interview T. Rice. Afterwards, we joined a very excited crowd in the Beacon Theater on Broadway, to watch this very-much buzzed about movie. One word: AMAZING.

Watch our video, as our ROXY Team Riders – who are in town for the Quiksilver Pro NY – get beautiful with Stila to walk down the red carpet for the Art of Flight premiere.

NEXT ROXY girl presented by Stila Casting Call Attracts Huge Crowd! (Video)

Fore MORE pix on Facebook, click here.

Last night we came out in support of  Fashion’s Night Out to our Roxy store in Soho.
The turn-out was amazing! Lines formed before we even opened our doors! Our guests got to mingle with our friends from Stila, Minx Nails, Seventeen, NEXT modeling agency, the Roxy athletes, and surf photographer Jim Russi.

Jim Russi was there to sign copies of his surf photography book Flying Through The Clouds, which also features many ROXY girls over the years.

Attendees were treated to Stila make-overs, get their nails did via Minx Nails and had the opportunity of a life-time: to get screened by NEXT models (one of the TOP agencies in the world!) for our casting call. As we are on our search for the “NEXT Roxy girl presented by Stila”, we asked applicants some tough (ok maybe not so tough) questions. Since the girls were there to become the NEXT face of Roxy we wanted to know, “What makes you a ROXY girl?”

To see their interesting answers and to check out our FNO festivities, watch the video. Are you in the video? Did you try out to be a Roxy girl?

East Coast Beach Style with Monyca & Kelia! (Video)

We. Love. Beach. Clothes. Obvi!
If you couldn’t tell already, we live for the beach. The ocean, the waves, the feeling of sand in your hair and on your skin…we can’t get enough. Spending that much time at the beach requires us to look and feel good in our beach clothes & accessories.
It’s also made us a little bit of experts in the subject of beach fashions.
We sent our stylish Roxy team riders Kelia Moniz and newbie Roxy girl Monyca Byrne-Wickey out on the boardwalk of Long Beach, NY while we were at the Quiksilver Pro 2011 to see what the fashion is like. Watch below!
