The ROXY Team takes home 2 Surfer Poll Awards

The ROXY Team takes home 2 Surfer Poll Awards

The Roxy team, including newly crowned 2x world Longboard champion and Hawaiian Kelia Moniz, Stephanie Gilmore, and Bruna Schmitz all took to the red carpet at the 2013 Surfer Poll awards doting glammed up attire. Meanwhile, the pride of South Africa, and the best commentator we know, Rosy Hodge, ran the red carpet alongside another memorable staple at the Surfer Poll awards, Sal Masekela. The girls made their way over to fellow teammate for a quick chat and photo snap before taking to their seats and watching the show.

2x Surfer Poll Winner and 5x world champ Stephanie Gilmore took home #5 at this year’s Surfer Poll and didn’t disappoint the crowd who was waiting to see what she’d be wearing. Her one-piece plaid jumpsuit was sporty, classy and all the rage on Twitter. Kudos to Steph for always surprising and never disappointing which translated to her gracious acceptance speech where she congratulated fellow teammate Kelia Moniz on her recent World title win along with a lovely tribute to friend Buttons. You’ll find Steph finishing the year off right in Hawaii at the Quiksilver House at Pipe.

…And Women’s #2 Surfer Poll went home with Roxy team rider Sally Fitzgibbons. Sally accepted the award all smiles and oceans away in the freezing , snowy, and extremely cold waters of Nova Scotia. Looks like her Roxy wetsuit was helping her bare the cold for some surf sessions and a quick acceptance speech.

Kelia Moniz wins her second ASP World Longboard Championship

Kelia Moniz wins her second World Title

Roxy team rider Kelia Moniz has done it again by claiming her 2nd consecutive ASP Women’s Longboard World Championship after winning the Swatch Girls Pro China 2013 hosted by Wanning in clean 3- 4ft surf peeling across the point break at Riyue Bay. For the third year in a row this event has crowned the ASP Women’s World Longboard Champion, and also for the third year in a row the same two surfers have made the final, with Williams winning in 2011, and Moniz taking the title last year.

Kelia Moniz, just 20 years old, has cemented her place in surfing history by becoming a two-time ASP Women’s World Longboard Champion. Moniz struggled early in the event, but came into form when it counted on Finals day using her trademark elegant style, power and flow to lock in some excellent scores and take the win.

“It doesn’t feel real yet, it will sink it when I go home and celebrate with family and friends,” Moniz said. “I don’t feel like I was surfing my best at the start of the event, and I was a little shaken up going into the final because Chelsea (Williams) was getting 8-point-rides all event. Then I just pulled myself together, listened to some good music, said a prayer, went out there and tried to just stay on my board and it worked. Winning back-to-back ASP World Longboard Titles is unbelievable! I couldn’t be happier.”

Dare Yourself Adventures in Tavarua, Fiji with 5 lucky winners from around the world

We took our five lucky DARE YOURSELF winners from around the world to Tavarua, Fiji for an adventure of a lifetime to hang with ROXY athletes including Kelia Moniz, Bruna Schmitz, Monyca Eleogram.

We were inspired to give back to the community, learn about the Fijian culture, swim like mermaids, surf the longest waves of our lives, workout with world class surfer Sally Fitzgibbons (and somehow keep up), but more importantly, we made lifelong friends. #DAREYOURSELF 

See how the winners spent their time on this little heart-shaped island in this video!

Roxy Hawaii: Jam sessions & back country road trippin’ in Honolulu with Ford Fiesta! Episode 5

Watch the final episode of the Roxy Hawaii #FiestaMovement series!!

Goodbyes are always the hardest (we’re really not very good at them), so in the last episode of the Ford Hawaii series, it only makes sense to take the long road with Kelia Moniz, Bruna Schmitz, and Kassia Meador on a scenic drive across the island and down into Honolulu in their Ford Fiesta. First stop in Honolulu, a little jam session with Ukelele maestro Jake Shumabukuro at a local recording studio, Island Sounds Studio. Next up, a car ride filled with island trippin’, picture flippin’, and reminiscing on the past 5 days in Oahu. What were your favorite parts of the Roxy Hawaii series? The athletes have theirs…Sandy’s Beach, coconut ice cream, shark cages, canoe racing, Waikiki views, Pineapple field rally races, and the list goes on…

Roxy Hawaii: Rock jumping & racing with Kelia & Ford Fiesta! Episode 4

ROXY Hawaii: Join Kelia’s Ride with FORD FIESTA

On your marks, get set….JUMP!?

In episode 4, Kelia Moniz (aka Sister), Bruna Schmitz, and a slightly timid Kassia Meador roll up in their Ford Fiesta for a little cliff jumping off the notorious ‘Jump Rock’ in Waimea Bay. The first jump is always the hardest; remember these girls are surfers…not skydivers.

After some turtle-filled free diving the girls fill up at a special place on the North Shore where the surf snack menu includes the famous Chocolate Haupia Pie at none other than Ted’s Bakery.  Next stop, the motocross track, to meet up with Kelia’s brothers for a little red-dirt action in the Ford Fiesta! We can’t tell you how badly we want to take this thing for a ride like that again #FiestaMovement

ROXY Hawaii: Dive with sharks on Oahu with Kelia and Ford Fiesta! episode 3

SP14_Ford_Feinblatt_02885

How does a day turn from a healthy Acai bowl breakfast type of morning to potentially being shark bait in the afternoon?

Take a ride in our ROXY Ford Fiesta as the team (with Kelia in the driver’s seat) ‘goes for a snorkel’ with famed local waterman and shark whisperer Mark Healy in Day 3 of our Hawaiian adventure.

It doesn’t get more daring than 1 massive aluminum cage, and over 20 Galapagos sharks followed by a sunset photo shoot with Kassia Meador in Oahu’s famous Dole Pineapple Fields (a view that few tourists ever get to experience).

ROXY Hawaii: Experience Oahu like Hawaiian royalty with Kelia and Ford Fiesta. Episode 2

There’s nothing like an sunrise surf session with the ‘Queen’ of  Queen’s (Beach, that is) with Kelia Moniz.  Take the tour to another side of the island with the team in their ROXY Ford Fiesta

There’s nothing like getting up early and enjoying a morning sunrise surf session with the Queen of Queens (Beach, that is) – Kelia Moniz (plus, we like to take advantage of an open lineup).

In episode 2, Kelia takes teammates Bruna Schmitz and Kassia Meador around to some of her local favorites as they catch a ride in the Ford Fiesta. With bikinis in tow, they head to the ‘local’ side of the island Makaha Beach – Oahu’s true playground. Enjoy this week’s road tripping adventure and get inspired to try something new – maybe even a SUP Squatch? (just watch…you’ll see what we mean!).

 In Kelia’s words “It’s always nice to give a little piece of your heaven to your friends”. Join the movement #FiestaMovement
