We love surprise visits, especially if it includes the likes of the self-dubbed “Three Amigos”, Bruna Schmitz, Kelia Moniz and Monyca Byrne Wickey. So when the US Open of Surfing rolled into our Huntington Beach backyard, our Roxy girls couldn’t wait to stop by to see everyone (or, more like shop!).
And perfect timing too as our Fall collection hit stores that day! Luckily it gave us all a chance to admire the new threads and see our favorite looks for the season come to life.
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.
She wore flowers in her hair. It’s all about flowers no matter if it’s the tropical print on your Tropic Paradise Bikini (like the one Kelia’s wearing), in your hair, or on your head.
Recently, the Roxy team traveled to Tahiti where there’s no lack of tropical treats and beautiful flowers scattered pretty much everywhere you look. It’s a well-preserved paradise and in between surf sessions served as the ultimate downtime DIY treat for team riders Monyca Byrne Wickey and Kelia Moniz.
Watch the Roxy Style Spy to get the basic how-to on making your own crown this Summer. Have fun getting creative with whatever flowers and natural elements you have available to you.
Luckily for us, Summer is upon us and we’ve got plenty of days on the beach, boardwalk and everything in between to wear our shorts around in. Not doubt we’ll also be sporting these all weekend long at the upcoming Roxy Waikiki Classic!
So, here’s to making a scene in some printed shorts! PS…here’s some outtakes of team riders Monyca Byrne Wickey, Bruna Schmitz, Kelia Moniz, and Justine Mauvin making up some dance moves and making a scene of their own on the island of Moorea!
