Whether you’re the ultimate parrothead or not, you can’t deny the fun-factor that Jimmy Buffet brings to the stage and all of his adoring fans. We were lucky to witness that up close and personal tonight at the ASP ROXY and Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast in an intimate beachside performance.
Quiksilver athlete Kelly Slater and Roxy’s own Stephanie Gilmore both graced the stage and performed alongside Mr. Buffett for their own individual jam sessions before joining back up for the ultimate Margarittaville finale.
It was a great way to end the night and await for what hopes to be a pretty good swell. Stay tuned for more from the #ROXYpro right here.
The quarterfinals kicked off today on the Gold Coast with ROXY team rider ‘s Stephanie Gilmore, Bianca Buitendag and Sally Fitzgibbons all in the mix! The call was made bright and early for the #ROXYpro and after a day like yesterday you could feel the excitement in the air.
Local favorite, Stephanie Gilmore, shined today against yesterday’s standout, Courtney Conlogue, in the first of 4 heats run today at the ROXY Pro Gold Coast. The biggest upset was in the 3rd quarter final heat when ASP Rookie Bianca Buitendag took to the water and dominated against number 2 in the world, Tyler Wright. A beautiful display of back-hand surfing saw a shock elimination of last 2013 ROXY Pro Champion.
The next call will be made by the ASP at 6:30 AM (local time) tomorrow, so stay tuned…we could be crowning the 2014 ROXY Pro Champ! In the meantime, check out what else we’ve been up to on the Goldy!
Day 1 of the #ROXYpro was blessed with perfect waves for the beginning of the 2014 ASP women’s Championship Tour.
High scores and pristine summer conditions saw the ladies of this years ASP tour show the surfing world that women’s surfing is the best its ever been, with some of the tours top seeds missing out on taking a win & be forced into tomorrows round two (elimination round)
For the rest of the ROXY team it was sunrise surf sessions at Dbah with Lisa Andersen and a little afternoon longboarding excursion with Kelia Moniz showing us how it’s done. Even the matriarch of surfing herself Lisa was taking a few stylish notes from the recently crowned 2x World Longboarding Champ (see nose-ride below and you’ll see what we mean).
Action item for the evening – ASP red carpet and awards show for the Roxy girls…which means a little styling, makeup and hair to help celebrate and congratulate these girls on 2013 well done! Plus, it’s just fun to get dolled up and styled up with your friends so we had to make it happen.
Accepting her second consecutive Longboard World Title was none other than Roxy’s own Hawaiian beauty Kelia Moniz – who was an absolute showstopper in her #POPsurf neoprene cropped top and flowy skirt. The best part, was Kelia left it up to her fans to pick between yellow and pink…and the winning color turned out to be her favorite too (but of course she couldn’t have gone wrong in either!).
The first stop of the 2014 ASP World Tour, the ROXY Pro Gold Coast, officially kicks off March 1st. It’s summer in Australia so expect sunshine, bikinis and some epic surfing with surprises along the way (you’ll see).
This also marks the first time the ASP is officially taking over the tour and we’re excited to see the changes to support women’s surfing around the world. Roxy team riders Stephanie Gilmore @StephanieGilmore , Sally Fitzgibbons @Sally_Fitz and Bianca Buitendag @BiancaBuitendag will begin their season alongside other familiar faces on the new Women’s ASP World Championship Tour [WCT]. A favorite spot of the WCT for more reasons than one, the Gold Coast – Snapper Rocks (better known as Australia’s Super Bank) hosts a perfect right-hand point and boosts the premier amphitheater setting to experience the action firsthand (just see the pictures for a taste)…And the weather looks in our favor as well!
Roxy’s very own Rosy Hodge will also be taking over as part of the core commentary team for the ASP. Nothing beats the South African beauty and her quick witted reporting (nothing – period), so we’re stoked to see her representing the tour.
New year means new adventures for ROXY Outdoor Fitness ambassador Rosy Hodge who will be joining the ASP as an official commentator. What else is on her 2014 to-do? After nonstop surf this winter and enjoyable winter weather, Rosy is keeping the adventure alive and exploring her new California backyard.
As a light, and great all around workout Rosy has gone into full discovery mode, looking for new trails along the California coast whenever the waves are crowded and the old shoulders sore.
One of her favorites, situated along the north end of Laguna Beach is Crystal Cove State Park. The backcountry is filled with miles of trails for hiking and boosts a beautiful view of El Morro State Beach. Rosy likes to begin with a light stretch when deciding which trails to take and reading up on the dangers around each location. Paired up with her On The Run Capri Pants and Embrace Bra, Rosy can enjoy the sunny terrain and picturesque views. As the day wares away, the Featherlight Windbreaker goes on for a brisk walk down the hill and back to the car. This lightweight jacket (which packs into itself), is an absolute must when traveling light.
An easy way to widen your horizons is to follow Rosy’s lead and research your local hiking trails for a quick afternoon or morning walk with some friends.
Dive into fitness & the fresh adventures all around you. Change is in the air – full of new beginnings and new chances to push ourselves to the edge. Whether we’re charging up trails, stretching into sun salutations, or paddling out over glassy waters, we live to be outside channeling the strength that comes with movement. Our beauty radiates from within but we pull off sweaty with style! As far as we’re concerned, the possibilities are endless. Let’s go!
