Kelia Moniz wins her second ASP World Longboard Championship

Kelia Moniz wins her second World Title

Roxy team rider Kelia Moniz has done it again by claiming her 2nd consecutive ASP Women’s Longboard World Championship after winning the Swatch Girls Pro China 2013 hosted by Wanning in clean 3- 4ft surf peeling across the point break at Riyue Bay. For the third year in a row this event has crowned the ASP Women’s World Longboard Champion, and also for the third year in a row the same two surfers have made the final, with Williams winning in 2011, and Moniz taking the title last year.

Kelia Moniz, just 20 years old, has cemented her place in surfing history by becoming a two-time ASP Women’s World Longboard Champion. Moniz struggled early in the event, but came into form when it counted on Finals day using her trademark elegant style, power and flow to lock in some excellent scores and take the win.

“It doesn’t feel real yet, it will sink it when I go home and celebrate with family and friends,” Moniz said. “I don’t feel like I was surfing my best at the start of the event, and I was a little shaken up going into the final because Chelsea (Williams) was getting 8-point-rides all event. Then I just pulled myself together, listened to some good music, said a prayer, went out there and tried to just stay on my board and it worked. Winning back-to-back ASP World Longboard Titles is unbelievable! I couldn’t be happier.”

According to ROXY Outdoor Fitness ambassador and professional surfer Sally Fitzgibbons, the key to an early morning workout is putting on an outfit that ‘makes you feel like you’re invincible and can run at the speed of light’. Her outfit of choice for a cold winter morning? Standard Running Tights and the Ambition Running Tee paired with the  Down and Ready Jacket.

Here are Sally’s morning workout running tips that every girl should abide by (trust us! This girl is so in shape and on her game it’s inspiring!):

Warming up and warming down is absolutely key in preventing injuries.

Put on your favorite #ROXYOutdoorFItness outfit & go on a run with professional surfer Sally FitzgibbonsMake sure you have an active and lively warm up including; leg swings, lunges and only hold any static stretches for a short moment.

Post exercise take your time in doing a slow cool down jog and hold your stretches for an extended length of time. Make sure you sync your breathing with the stretches to go a little further.

Make your run fun and exciting…Go on an adventure! Look off the beaten path and try to always keep moving forward and not go back the same way you came!

Have someone drop you at a destination where you are just running to make it back home or to a friends’ house or your favorite cafe to meet up with everybody.

Use your surroundings wherever you may be in the world. Study your environment and find little challenges like a steep hill and create a super set around it.

3 sets of 5 sprint hills will send the heart rate through the roof and get the legs burning.

Dare Yourself Adventures in Tavarua, Fiji with 5 lucky winners from around the world

We took our five lucky DARE YOURSELF winners from around the world to Tavarua, Fiji for an adventure of a lifetime to hang with ROXY athletes including Kelia Moniz, Bruna Schmitz, Monyca Eleogram.

We were inspired to give back to the community, learn about the Fijian culture, swim like mermaids, surf the longest waves of our lives, workout with world class surfer Sally Fitzgibbons (and somehow keep up), but more importantly, we made lifelong friends. #DAREYOURSELF 

See how the winners spent their time on this little heart-shaped island in this video!

Congrats to Sally Fitzgibbons on winning the Roxy Pro France 2013! #ROXYPro

Congrats to Sally Fitzgibbons! Winner of the ROXY Pro France 2013

Sally Fitzgibbons (AUS) 22, has won the Roxy Pro France today in Seignosse Le Penon narrowly defeating fellow Australian Tyler Wright (AUS) 19, in clean 3-4Ft surf.

Penultimate event on the 2013 ASP Women’s World Championship Tour, the Roxy Pro France marks Fitzgibbons’s first event win this season. An absolute standout today, Fitzgibbons was the first surfer to net a perfect 10 in France, and holds three of the highest wave scores of the event.

“I’m so stoked, it’s been a long road this year and I wanted to finish strong,” an ecstatic Fitzgibbons stated. “In that final we switched peaks and I was just sorting things out when she got that 10, and I couldn’t hear anything after that. I got that last good one and I was hoping it would be enough. It’s the most amazing feeling! I’ve got my brother and my dad here and all my family watching online, they’ve been there for me every step of the way!”

A dominant surfer in previous heats where she comboed her opponents several times, Fitzgibbons had to fight through a tight back and forth battle in the final when Wright caught an inside righthander to score the only other perfect 10 point ride of the event.

“It was a tricky situation, I had priority and a sneaky right came in and I was looking for the lefts,” Fitzgibbons continued. “She went for it and really stepped it up, I saw her do that little air out the back and I thought game on I got to do something big now! Patience and perseverance and just keeping your head down, I kept going and I’m just so happy!!”

Tyler Wright (AUS) 19, consistently advanced through the rounds to earn her spot in the final. Off to a great start in the opening minutes of the exchange, Wright was chasing an excellent score when she found the little righthander that earned her a perfect 10 point ride. Suffering another assault from Fitzgibbons, she unfortunately couldn’t find a last opportunity to ameliorate her backup of a 7.00 point and eventually placed runner-up.

“I didn’t really have expectations, I’ve come here to surf, have fun and enjoy myself !” Wright said. “It was awesome to see Sally go out there and win her first event this year cause I know it means a lot to her, and she surfed awesome, definitely the standout of the event. She smashed it and that’s great for our sport to have a surfer like her on tour.”

Posting a third runner-up finish on the board, Wright consolidates her current second place on the rankings and sits an incredibly low 200 points behind current leader Carissa Moore, making for a spectacular finish next week in Portugal.

“I don’t plan on doing anything special like that I just do it, it’s the way I surf. That was a really entertaining final with Sally getting that last one too. The points and numbers don’t really matter to me, they never have. I’m just here surfing and having fun that’s what I do best. This year was never about that, I’m just happy to be on tour and living the life I live !”

Carissa Moore (HAW) 21, placed equal third today, adding yet another excellent result to her season tally, and will be looking to finish strong in Portugal to keep her dream of a second World Title alive. The powerful Hawaiian who earlier today defeated local surfer Pauline Ado (FRA), couldn’t match Fitzgibbons’s sizzling form in their semi-final matchup.

“Of course I’m bummed I wanted to make the final and have a strong performance, but that’s competition I just have to stay happy and focused and get excited for  Portugal,” Moore stated. “I think the biggest key to winning in a place like this is being able to adapt very quickly cause it’s always changing out here. I didn’t find the waves that really built up and allowed for good surfing.”

Lakey Peterson (USA) 19, reached the semi-finals for the second time this season, narrowly defeated by Tyler Wright. One of the most progressive surfers on the Women’s World Championship Tour, Peterson put on a spectacular show for the French crowds and took things to the air in a promising preview of what the future of women’s surfing holds.

“I’m just a little bummed the waves did not cooperate in that last heat, the tide got a little to low,” Peterson said. “But I had fun, it’s nice to get a good result it’s been a little while. I love it here in France, now I can just enjoy it a little bit and head to Portugal for the last event of the year. I might stick around and surf a little more here, and watch the guys tomorrow, we’ll see it’s my birthday so I kind of want to hang out.”

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

Kassia Meador’s Artistic adventure at the La Casa Artist Residency in Aus

With Kassia Meador’s latest and most magical wetsuit collection to date dropping next week, we thought we’d share one of her colorful adventures from down under. If you don’t know Kass yet, get to know her…like now. She is truly one of a kind and is constantly evolving and adding to her already magnificent repertoire of artistry – whether it be longboarding, photography, music, filmmaking, or painting, she’s not one who just dabbles, she masters. We are grateful to have her a part of the Roxy family, so sit back, and enjoy this rad little adventure and stay tuned for more next week!

In Kassia’s words:

“I recently had the opportunity to stay at the La Casa Artist Residency  with a few of the members from our performance art group UFO2012. It was a magical 2 weeks filled with good vibes, wonderful people, music making, surfing and just all around creating magical moments and living dreams. I also teamed up with one of my most favorite people and filmmakers Taylor Steele, to shoot a commercial for my most recent Signature Roxy wetsuit collections. It’s always so great to work with people you look up to and vibe with, that’s when the magic happens. And the icing on the cake was the track that Paz and Aska made specifically for the commercial while we were all together at La Casa, the house of dreams!!! Enjoy”
