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

Having a Maine Moment with Shana of The Ropes Maine

 

Moments before we set off on a journey with the Roxy surf team to the Mentawais and Bali for our Summer 2012 shoot, we fell head over heels (and borderline obsessed) with The Ropes Maine and have been completely hooked since.

Thanks to Maine Ropes designer Shana, we packed a bag full of Ropes, which now grace the pages of our Summer 2012 catalog and countless other pictures from the Surf Team’s epic adventure…and some of our co-workers even sports some Ropes too!

We caught up with Shana and had her share some ‘Maine Moments’ with us, because let’s face it, something about her Ropes and Maine quaintness completely entrances us.

Roxy: What is it about Maine you love most?

Shana: I always found the cities to be inspiring in a cultural sense but stifling from a creative and design stand point.  I like the idea of visiting different metropolitan cities but then coming home to Maine to interpret and digest everything.  Maine does not have all those big cities comforts or conveniences therefore I believe it pushes you to be more creative.  Things are not so straight forward or obvious; you have to look outside the box and that is where creativity flourishes.   

Roxy: How would you define a quintessential Maine moment?

Shana: Spending the entire day on my husband’s lobster boat exploring different islands off the coast. 

Roxy: What is your favorite Roxy memory?

Shana: Growing up, I vividly remember my babysitter giving me hand-me-downs of her super cool clothes. I remember labels like Benetton, Espirit, OP, Body Glove, etc. But one item I remember in particular was a pair of boardshorts from Roxy that I wore every single day that summer.

Roxy: Where will your next adventure take you?

Shana: Hopefully on the next Caribbean location with Roxy!…realistically a trunk show/reunion with my college friends in the Hamptons.

Roxy: Can you give us a sneak peek or inside scoop on what we can expect next from The Ropes Maine?

Shana: In the future you can expect to see many more great jewelry designs, as well as a few new accessories – all incorporating rope of course!

Roxy: As you know, we’re looking for 3 girls from around the world to ‘Live the Dream of a Roxy Girl’. Can you give us an inside perspective on what it’s really like? How does the Sea Set You Free…?

SF: I’ve just launched into the 2012 ASP World Tour season. I’m so excited to be competing none stop for the first part of the year. After training hard in the off season I’m feeling strong and ready for a great year. Next stop is Bells Beach, the wintery location is the longest standing World Tour event. It is an iconic event, so many of my Heroes are past champions of the event. For that very reason I’m very keen to get down there and start hooking into some fun waves.   

Roxy: You’ve seen so much already, but we want to know…where are you headed next and what are you most looking forward to on the journey of your life?
