Roxy Outdoor Fitness: Get Beach Abs on the Beach

ab8

Next time you’re catching a few rays and enjoying a summer beach day, get your outdoor fitness on without even leaving the sand. You can get creative and have beach abs on the beach. In the sand. Sitting down. Literally. Here’s how’s we did it in our Hot Competition Shorts and Cut Back Tank:

Bring your hands behind your head, legs crossed (if you’re not already relaxing comfortably there). Now here’s the challenging part. Lift your legs a few inches off of the sand, while lifting your shoulders off the sand and inhaling. As you exhale, pull your knees in, lift your shoulders higher, and engage your core. Return to starting position, and repeat.

In the same starting position, open your legs about hip width distance, and return to crossed legs, keeping your legs hovering over the sand and shoulder blades lifted. Keep your chin off your chest and pull your belly in as you repeat the motion.
ab1

Have a seat in the sand with your hands by your hips. Lean back until you feel your abs working, then dig your heels hard into the sand, using the soft sand as resistance.

With your bum still seated comfortably in the sand, roll onto your right side using your right forearm for support and left hand behind your ear, elbow out wide. Bring your legs to a 45 degree angle hovered above the sand. As you exhale, pull your knees into your chest and pull your upper body towards your knees using your obliques. Return to starting, repeat, and flip to the left side!

And there you have it! Jump in the water for a cool down.

Surf To Snow: Episode 3 Snow Adventures with Torah Bright Colorado with Olay Fresh Effects!


It’s off to Aspen in the 3rd episode of the ‘Surf To Snow’ series, and no snow adventure would be complete without the queen of snowboarding and Olympic gold medalist Torah Bright in on the action.

Ice skating (or something close), toboggan riding, hot cocoa drinking and a day packed with snowboarding help round out this episode in snowy Colorado.  We know the previous episode had you looking forward to warmer weather, but we’re thinking the cold might be winning back our hearts…how about yours?

It was only befitting that today’s Twitter giveaway was a Roxy snowboard (yep, the one Torah rides), a pair of Bright Edition goggles and an Olay Gift Pack!

Kassia Meador Wetsuits: Fresh Suits for Fancy Footwork Fanatics

Kassia Meador is one of the most recognizable longboarders in the world, known for her smooth styles both on and off the board. Kassi has developed a passion for surfing, shooting film, and tripping around the globe in search of perfect peelers and radically random weirdness. Meet Kass and check out her inspiration behind the wetsuits that have set the bar and led the way in new flair and wetsuit design and technology…

I’m Kassia Meador, and I’ve been surfing for Roxy for the last 13 years. Since I was young I was always interested in wetsuit design and fashion. I’ve always felt as surfers, what we wear in the water is really a reflection of our personal style. But with wetsuits being the way they were, black on black, there wasn’t really anything out there to let us show our personal style or stand out. About 5 years ago, I thought it was time to change the way the surf world thought about wetsuits, and I worked on my first collection with Roxy.

My inspirations for the first designs came out of my love for the history of surfing and surf costumes, especially bathing suits trends in Europe during the 40′s and 50′s. I wanted to make something that was flattering, comfortable, and would make us women feel like the best versions of ourselves in the water. That first collection sold out. Since then, I’ve developed 5 different colletions of wetsuits with Roxy. Growing and selling out every season helped to start a trend the rest of the surf industry would follow—but more importantly, it was a new way for women to look good and feel great in the water all the while having comfort, flexibility and warmth.

This newest collection is infused with the warmest and most comfortable materials, as well as the grooviest colors and lines to keep our female bodies looking strong and fit. I’m the most excited about this collection than any of the past to date, and I know you will be too. So get out there soak up some sunshine, be bold, live large, follow your bliss and glide the day away….

Welcome to Tahiti Summer 2013 #DAREYOURSELF

It’s Summer…time to heat things up in French Polynesian fashion! Tahiti called and your wave is waiting, so let’s ride (we did!).

The Roxy team including Sally Fitzgibbons, Kelia Moniz, LeeAnn Curren, Monyca Byrne Wickey, Justin Mauvin, and Bruna Schmitz boarded an easy 8 hour plane flight on Air Tahiti Nui from LAX and arrived to a warm flower-filled welcome at the Intercontinental Resort in French Polynesia (PS we can’t wait to show you our Polynesian Lei DIY vid).

What we woke up to was nothing short of a Roxy dream. We quickly boarded a boat and drifted off to the secluded island of Moorea, with bikinis in tow and sandals in hand, we got ourselves ready for a swim with some friends. After that, we dove right in with a lagoon full of stingrays (Kelia’s little buds), sharks and other sea friends that were welcoming and waiting.  Fast forward and we’re living on Tahiti Yacht catamarans a short ride away from one of the biggest and best offshore breaks in the world – Teahupoo. In true Polynesian fashion, we got the lay of the land with Raimana (aka the mayor of Tahiti) who showed us the best breaks, pineapple groves, sunset points, coral reefs, and most delicious Poisson Cru in town (yum!).

This is the Roxy way of life and we’re just starting to heat things up…Here’s some of our favorite pics from the beautiful Polynesian Island. #DAREYOURSELF to keep dreaming big…
