Loving Lost in Bali: Mt. Agung Sunrise Trekking Part 1

Mt. Agung, Bali

Welcome to Mt. Agung, the tallest and holiest mountain on the island of Bali at 9,944 feet above sea level! Famous for it’s picturesque sunrise vantage points and breathtaking panoramic views across the entire island of Bali, we couldn’t help but sign up for the full moon mountain hike to see for ourselves.

Bamboo Indah, Bali

To prepare ourselves for the challenging day ahead, we took the afternoon to physically and mentally prepare with an afternoon yoga session in the Minang house at Bamboo Indah. Overlooking Ubud’s rice terraces, this was the perfect place to mentally prepare for the exciting journey ahead.

Rosy Hodge, Kelia Moniz, Lee-Ann Curren and Bruna Schmitz enjoyed a private lesson from a local yogi, complemented with a stunning visual of bright green leaves and the soft sounds of chirping birds in the background.

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

ROXY Hawaii: Experience Oahu like Hawaiian royalty with Kelia and Ford Fiesta. Episode 2

There’s nothing like an sunrise surf session with the ‘Queen’ of  Queen’s (Beach, that is) with Kelia Moniz.  Take the tour to another side of the island with the team in their ROXY Ford Fiesta

There’s nothing like getting up early and enjoying a morning sunrise surf session with the Queen of Queens (Beach, that is) – Kelia Moniz (plus, we like to take advantage of an open lineup).

In episode 2, Kelia takes teammates Bruna Schmitz and Kassia Meador around to some of her local favorites as they catch a ride in the Ford Fiesta. With bikinis in tow, they head to the ‘local’ side of the island Makaha Beach – Oahu’s true playground. Enjoy this week’s road tripping adventure and get inspired to try something new – maybe even a SUP Squatch? (just watch…you’ll see what we mean!).

 In Kelia’s words “It’s always nice to give a little piece of your heaven to your friends”. Join the movement #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”

Tidal Waves and China Days

Roxy Professional Longboarders Jen Smith and Chloe Calmon are jet setting on an experience of a lifetime to surf the Silver Dragon, a tidal bore in Hangzhou, China. This is only the fourth time China has ever allowed anyone to surf in the river, and our very own Roxy girls will be competing in the Silver Dragon Shootout Surf Contest! Chloe’s been lucky enough to surf in the river before, so she knows exactly what to expect and has a head start against the competition, but Jen’s done her research, and it sounds like she’s ready for the adventure! This is one of the most unique surfing experiences we’ve heard of, so we caught up with Jen and Chloe as they were getting ready to leave, and they filled us in on everything we need to know about surfing tidal waves and traveling to China.

Chloe’s Travel Tips and China Tricks

Last year, when people saw me walking on the street with surfboards, they thought I was crazy and tapped me to see if I was real! Ha! This time, I’ll make sure learn a phrase in Chinese that I can explain to them!

I suggest packing comfortable clothes. I know I won’t be leaving without my  1. sun skippers, 2. easy tees, 3. savage dress, 4. a cross body purse , 5. and some easy boots.

I’m also bringing a 1. lightweight springsuit, and my 2. favorite bikinis, for the river. More importantly, the 3. surf essentials for the competition. It’s a must to bring a spare leash in case it snaps and all the other basics including fins, and wax which are easy to forget when packing for a trip. Plus sunscreen and sunnies!

The most important thing to know about before traveling there is the culture. The Chinese have an ancient culture that cherishes small details and gestures, from giving a business card to eating with them. So it`s helpful to watch some videos on the internet about Chinese etiquette and respect!

We packed our surfboards and bikinis, and left our wetsuits hanging in the closet for Playa Jobos for the Roxy Puerto Rico Classic! The free surf contest brought girls of all ages and skill levels together for a day of surfing at the 1st Annual Roxy Puerto Rico Classic.

The event ran both Saturday and Sunday and was packed with contest surfers and beach goers looking for a chance to enjoy some free surf lessons. The surfers enjoyed chest – shoulder high waves on one of Puerto Rico’s best reef breaks.

Congratulations to all of the wahine finalists in the Open Pro division, who claimed the $2,000 prize purse, and a special congrats to Marissa Shaw from San Clemente, CA, who was crowned with the 1st place prize!
