The Roxy Womens Longboard event during the Ron Jon’s Easter Surf Fest this past weekend was a huge success with thousands of girls lining up to meet and greet 2007 and 2009 World Longboard Champion Jennifer Smith and catch some amazing surfing. East Coast girls were excited and inspired to chat with Jen and get advice on how to have a successful career as a surfer and get free posters and autographs from some of the Roxy team on the beach and at Ron Jons in Cocoa Beach, Fl! To back that up, Jen put her own advice to good use by winning the Easterfest Longboard contest in front of thousands of fans. Roxy surfers Amy Murphee and Savannah Bradley also met Jen in the finals and placed second in Longboard and third in Shortboard respectively. Way to go team Roxy!

“It was like six minutes to the end and feelings just all washed over me and I was tingling. It’s such an amazing feeling to win. I had some pressure though when I paddled into a wave and left Kaitlin (Maguire) on her own because she can pull a world championship out of her hat anytime.” - Cori’s words after taking home the title in LA COTE DES BASQUES, Biarritz, France (Sunday, July 11, 2010). Cori (33,California USA) defeated fellow finalist Kaitlin Maguire (22, California USA) in a 100% American heat. A huge Congrats to Cori Schumacher, making us proud!

Surfer Style

Today I checked in with a few girls from our surf team who were in town and asked them about their ”summer style secrets.”  They did not disappoint! Bree is a fan of “off-the-shoulder shirts,” while Jen always carries a little “salt in her hair” to look stylish. And Amy? She swears by a “hot pair of earrings.” My advice: try all 3 at once!

Amy, Jen and Bree (L. to R.) share their style secrets
