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
When traveling the world ROXY Outdoor Fitness ambassador and surf team rider Sally Fitzgibbons always has her fit ball, providing the focus for a great workout. (Fun Fact: Sally literally will bring her pump and ball everywhere –even a catamaran off the coast of Tahiti!).
This piece of equipment provides endless options when developing workout routines. Take a journey through Sally’s personal morning workout routine in her Fresh Water Tee and Enhance Capris straight from her beachside backyard in hometown Gerroa, Australia.Each of the 4 fit ball exercises has a balance element, making them perfect for simulating being on a surfboard, while also being great for building power and strength in your day-to-day living and activities.
Remember to smile while exercising to help distract yourself from any pain or fatigue you may feel…smile and go the mile!
Grab your fit ball and Dumbbells and here we GO!
Dumbbell Shoulder Press – Stabilize yourself on the ball then alternate your arms for shoulder press. Use weights that suite the level you are at and think tall and strong through your mid section. Do 10 reps each arm x 3
Hammy Curls – Start on your back with legs straight on the Fit ball and hold a solid plank. Don’t let your back lower or sink and pull your legs back toward your butt. Slowly release back to straight. You will feel this in the back of your legs, great strengthener for your hamstrings. Do 15 reps x 3
Single leg Squat- Grab your dumbbells that suite your ability and place one leg up on the Ball. Without having your front knee bend beyond your toe line, lower the back knee toward the ground for a single leg squat. Do 10 reps each leg x 3
Plank on Bench - Use your surroundings, find a wall or bench that is close to the same height as the fit ball and challenge yourself in doing a raised plank. Build up from 30seconds to 1 minute holds.
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).
Today we’re throwing it back to our ROXY Fall shoot in Santa Cruz, California, where stands HAUT Surfboard Shop and where we scored our newest ride (hang on we’ll tell you more about our fancy board shortly).
Consequentially, HAUT is a throwback in itself, making its home in a one-story old building with a graveled driveway dating back to 1969. Its quintessential surf charm cannot be mistaken…fin adorned windows, resin filled rooms, plastered walls chronicling tales of times past, and of course, Doug, the shop’s main man and legendary west-coast shaper, who brought out one of his mini-gun designs to make a special board for the girls.
Our new board is perfect for bigger, hollower waves that we see in CA in the Fall and now is part of our collection for road trips and secrets spots around the world.
Enjoy a glimpse into Haut Surf Shop! Also, Doug wanted us to tell you to follow HAUT’s Facebook page!
Join our ride…this is the story of where ‘car meets board’ and for us that journey begins fresh off flight from California to Oahu where ROXY professional surfer and photographer Kassia Meador catches a ride with teammates Bruna Schmitz and Honolulu native Kelia Moniz.
Just think…3 girls, 5 days, and 1 mind blowing adventure that will have you daring to do the unthinkable. This 5 part series has the girls exploring the Island’s waters, waves and mountains, capturing rarely seen images while on Kassia’a editorial photo assignment…tag along as the gang meets some of the Island’s icons while touring in their ROXY Ford Fiesta. Stay tuned for a new ‘ROXY Hawaii: Kelia’s Ride with FORD FIESTA’ episode each week on Tuesday (for the next 5 weeks! Yeow!). #FiestaMovement
A few months ago we invited our friend and New York fashion blogger Kimberly Pesch of Eat.Sleep.Wear. to California for the first time and give her a taste of the ROXY way of life – early morning surf checks, beach bonfires, the team, sunsets for days…the list goes on…
Well, we guess it was enough to make her pack her bags and make her ‘California Dreaming’ a reality since she now calls CA her home!
Enjoy this ROXY Style Spy vid from our shoot in Santa Cruz, CA where Kim breaks down some stylish options with Monyca Byrne Wickey and Kelia Moniz and get inspired for some great Summer-Fall transitional looks that will keep you HOT FOR FALL!
The Inaugural ROXY Montauk Classic event was held this past weekend at Ditch Plains in Montauk, NY. The event brought in locals as well as avid surfers all the way from Florida, Illinois, Hawaii and beyond! Over 100 participants competed for prizes including Paul Mitchell product, local shop Air & Speed gift cards, and tons of Roxy goodies. Five time World Champion, Stephanie Gilmore, World Longboard Champion, Kelia Moniz and Monyca Byrne-Wickey were on site signing autographs, handing out awards and schmoozing and taking pictures with the elated crowd.
Saturday brought clouds and wind but that did not stop the contestants from braving the chilly weather and rippin’ while Sunday was a perfectly, quintessential summer, bluebird day for competition. Kudos to the on-lookers as well those who cheered on our participants and enjoyed the fun!
Event sponsors included Paul Mitchell, activating and offering ‘beachy’ hair-dos which was a non-stop line, Sun Bum sunscreen, which helped keep visitors protected from the New England sun; HeartBeet Juicery joined in and gave out their amazing concoctions of juices; Vitacoco water kept everyone hydrated; and Beachcomber Resort, kept us well-rested!
Huge thanks to the Ditch Plains and Montauk locals for letting us hold the event-hope to see you next year! #ROXYMontaukClassic
