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

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




Torah Bright: So Long Spring…

Pretty sunset at home in AUS. Going to miss you!

After a couple action packed weeks in New Zealand riding the pipe and jumps and airbags up at Snow Park everyday I’m back in OZ for a quick family fix before heading back north for the start of that winter season. So for the past few days I’ve been drinking it all in.

Hanging out with my nieces, going on bush walks and getting styled by my little sister. She’s my hair stylist, I know I know, a long way to go to get your hair done but she’s amazing and worth the trip!

Definitely going to miss this place and the long Australian summers but am also getting really excited for winter to start hammering us with pow!

Cheers, Torah


Torah Bright: Back in New Zealand

Scotty James, Benny and I at TC.

After a few fun weeks in the states, I’m back in the southern hemi for round two of winter. Well, actually springtime. I’m back in Wanaka with my brother Benny and fellow Aussie Scotty James to ride for the last bit of spring shredding. So far so good. We’ve been having heaps of fun in Wanaka, riding at Treble Cone and Snowpark and just being back in the scene. Cardrona is hosting private halfpipe and airbag sessions the first two weeks of October so a bunch of the international riders are also making their way back to New Zealand for slushie spring pipes and jumps before winter starts up again in the northern hemisphere. Should be fun to ride with everyone again!

Cheers, Torah


Torah Bright: HP Commercial

I’m really excited that the new HP ePrint campaign has launched and the commercial is playing in Australia and NZ.   Have a look and let me know what you think!

The whole campaign was a lot of fun to shoot and I’m getting a lot of use from my printer lately – whoever thought I’d be able to send stuff from my phone to my mum’s printer on the other side of the world… Oh and I love love love that my mum has a cameo in the commercial! Hope you enjoy the commercial as much as I do and stay posted for more….there are a few versions in the mix.

Cheers! Torah

Congrats to Roxy’s Stand Up Paddle Team at the Battle of the Paddle, CA

Doheny State Beach was packed over the weekend with SUP fans and competitors alike for the fourth annual Battle of the Paddle September 24th & 25th.

The morning started with a 9am Elite Race and the newest addition to the Battle of the Paddle this year. This elite course is a multiple lap circuit that includes paddling through the surf and beaching equipment for a short, flagged sand run.

Only the top ten women advance, and Roxy’s Stand Up Paddle team did not disappoint. Advancing to the finals in the afternoon was Roxy’s very own Talia Gangini, one of the youngest riders out there, who came in with a 3rd place finish, while fellow Roxy’s Gillian Gilbree was right behind her.

Both girls moved on to the afternoon finals and Gillian overtook the 5th position from Talia who took 6th in the last round.

Roxy’s stand up Paddler Vanina Walsh also participated in the 2011 Baddle of the Paddle over the weekend. Vanina took two 1st places in the 13-14 girls and a 4th in the 18 and under girls stock board race.

Vanina was also given a special award for being the most inspirational female paddler!

A huge congrats to the entire Roxy SUP team!


9/7/11: Free Roxy Sunrise Yoga with Joseph Encinia- Yogi Life

Join Roxy & Bikram Yoga Long Beach (BYLB) on the beach for FREE Roxy Sunrise Yoga!

In anticipation of National Yoga Day on September 10th we’ll be stretching our muscles and our minds at the Roxy Sunrise Yoga special happening at the Quiksilver Pro, NY right on the beach! We’ve always appreciated the relationship between yoga and surf, with yoga having been known to improve balance, flexibility and core strength which is much needed in Surf. Kelly Slater is a notorious fan of yoga – and that’s all we need to hear.

From Sept. 7th (pending rain) through Sept. 10th from 7am-8am, Roxy will be celebrating a healthy, fit lifestyle with Yoga instructors from BYLB and special guest instructor Joseph Encinia.

BYLB located in Long Beach, NY opened its doors in October of 2010 by co-owners and certified Yoga instructors, Anne Hayes and Colleen O’Rourke. Since its inception, the state-of-the-art facility has welcomed over 2,600 students, athletes, as well as countless international yoga champions who have shared their knowledge and passion with the Long Beach, NY community.

A frequent visitor of BYLB and yogi extraordinaire Joseph Encinia will be a guest instructor at Roxy Sunrise Yoga! As the current and 3 time National Champion and 2011 Male International Asana Champion it’s obvious we’ll be learning from the best!

Born and raised in Dallas, TX, Joseph began his life with an unpromising diagnosis of Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis leading to countless visits to the hospital and a struggle to strengthen his joints and muscles. After a major knee surgery, Joseph later suffered an unexpected heart attack at 13 years old. In an attempt to regain control of his health he learned about Bikram Yoga and has inspired millions since.

Please join us on the beach by the Roxy Surf Camp. Roxy Sunrise Yoga is FREE and open to ALL.

Arrive early, bring plenty of water, wear exercise clothing, and mostly importantly SMILE. We’ll take care of the rest…

Nameste & see you there!
