The 3rd annual Roxy Waikiki Classic comes to an end!

The 3rd Annual Roxy Waikiki Classic comes to an end!

Close to 200 girls came out to compete in the 3rd annual Roxy Waikiki Classic and since it’s origination, it has become the event all the young girls of Hawaii wait for in grand anticipation. It’s a favorite weekend amongst the girls who relish the opportunity to surf with friends, meet surfing idols like Lisa Andersen, Kelia Moniz, Rosy Hodge and Bruna Schmitz and just surf the fun waves of Waikiki.

While conditions we small with the south swell already fading from earlier in the week, girls still managed to showcase their skills throughout this weekend’s contest. The girls who took the podium for the awards ceremony were greeted on stage by host and professional surfer Rosy Hodge, along 4x World Surfing Champion Lisa Andersen. We have to admit, it’s not a bad reception to receive an award by surfing’s elite. Wouldn’t you agree?

Between surf breaks, the girls took to the beach where the Roxy staff loved hanging with all the competitors and their families. Girls lined the beach for poster signings, got their hair sun and saltwater ready at the Paul Mitchell tent, and kept their skin protected at the Sun Bum tent. There was never a dull moment beachside or in the water and we were lucky to enjoy beautiful sunny weather both days!

Surfing has come a long way and this event gives girls the opportunity to show how far the sport has advanced here in Hawaii. The smiles on all the girls’ faces are what make us truly realize how special the Roxy life is for these young surfer girls.

Don’t forget to check out some pictures from Day 1 and Day 2 of the Roxy Waikiki Classic and see the full list of results below.

Aloha from the 2012 Roxy Waikiki Classic

The 2012 Roxy Waikiki Classic took over Queens Beach, Waikiki, on June 16 & 17 (Fathers Day weekend)! The free amateur surf contest included both longboard and shortboard divisions for girls and women of all ages. This year the event also hosted the one and only ASP Women’s Longboard Qualifier in Hawaii, giving the local girls a chance to compete for a spot on the 2013 World Longboard Tour! Honorable mentions in the ASP event include Crystal Dzigas who was crowned winner of the professional longboard final Roxy Team Riders Kelia Moniz who took second, and Vanina Walsh who finished fourth.

With 173 competitors in the amateur division and 24 ASP pros… along with their friends, families and supporters on the beach, you could say there was an impressive turn out! While the surf contest showcased new and returning talent, there was also a ton of action on the beach! Paul Mitchell was on site with their very own hair styling pros and they kept the crowds busy by conditioning/braiding girls’ hair! Anyone who was dry or just out of the water could stop by the Paul Mitchell tent for a beach “do” and learn about hair care and special products for the beach.

There was always something fun going on at the Roxy Tent with customized flip flops, raffles, giveaways and athlete signings with Roxy pro surfers Rosy Hodge, Kelia Moniz, Lisa Andersen, Jen Smith, Monyca Byrne-Wickey, Amy Murphree, and Vanina Walsh! These girls were hanging out all day long getting into the spirit and meeting all the competitors.

Jamba Juice stoked out the beach with free smoothies and the Kokua Hawaii Foundation got on board to share their knowledge and “how to’s” on making recycling fun! They set up recycle stations around the beach and encouraged people to get creative by making their own sea turtles out of bottle caps! The Roxy Initiative joined forced to share the importance of recycling and set up a water station with re-useable bottles for a donation. The Roxy Initiative raised just over $2000 for the Kokua Hawaii Foundation which will be matched and rounded up to $5000 to help fund the Plastics Free Hawaii initiative.

With tons of stoke and Roxy love going around (in and out of the water), the event was for sure a favorite! Roxy hopes to spread the love around the USA one day soon with more events just like it! The Waikiki Classic aims to become a series that will continue to grow in the upcoming years! Stay tuned for 2013 dates coming soon…

“[The Waikiki Classic] is all about having a good time and giving back to the sport. We want to teach the youth so they can learn how to surf and enjoy it like we did! The more events we have like this the more we can inspire the next generation.” – Lisa Andersen, 2012 Roxy Waikiki Classic
