Maldives Surf Trip with Roxy

Playful right-handers and crystal-clear waters—the Maldives almost seems like they were made for our Roxy Surf Team. The tropical paradise has three key surfing zones spanning over 300 miles—that’s 300 miles of pristine point breaks as well as colorful, shallow reefs. Whether it was Sally Fitz slashing a front-hand right, or Kassia Meador dancing on her longboard, the Roxy girls were chasing dreams and catching waves just in time when spring fever set in. They grabbed their spring bikinis for single-fin cruises and reef explorations. Check out a snapshot of their Maldivian adventures.

Get out there, your wave is waiting…#DAREYOURSELF
