The 3rd annual Roxy Waikiki Classic comes to an end!

The 3rd Annual Roxy Waikiki Classic comes to an end!

Close to 200 girls came out to compete in the 3rd annual Roxy Waikiki Classic and since it’s origination, it has become the event all the young girls of Hawaii wait for in grand anticipation. It’s a favorite weekend amongst the girls who relish the opportunity to surf with friends, meet surfing idols like Lisa Andersen, Kelia Moniz, Rosy Hodge and Bruna Schmitz and just surf the fun waves of Waikiki.

While conditions we small with the south swell already fading from earlier in the week, girls still managed to showcase their skills throughout this weekend’s contest. The girls who took the podium for the awards ceremony were greeted on stage by host and professional surfer Rosy Hodge, along 4x World Surfing Champion Lisa Andersen. We have to admit, it’s not a bad reception to receive an award by surfing’s elite. Wouldn’t you agree?

Between surf breaks, the girls took to the beach where the Roxy staff loved hanging with all the competitors and their families. Girls lined the beach for poster signings, got their hair sun and saltwater ready at the Paul Mitchell tent, and kept their skin protected at the Sun Bum tent. There was never a dull moment beachside or in the water and we were lucky to enjoy beautiful sunny weather both days!

Surfing has come a long way and this event gives girls the opportunity to show how far the sport has advanced here in Hawaii. The smiles on all the girls’ faces are what make us truly realize how special the Roxy life is for these young surfer girls.

Don’t forget to check out some pictures from Day 1 and Day 2 of the Roxy Waikiki Classic and see the full list of results below.

Roxy #WaikikiClassic

The first day of the Roxy Waikiki Classic kicked off to a fantastic start with the sun shinning bright over Queens Beach and steady waves for all those competing. Whether you were on the beach getting your hair braided at the Paul Mitchell tent, lathering up in Sun Bum’s moisturizing sunscreen lotion, or trying your chances at the spin the wheel for your own Roxy ‘I love Surfer Boys’, ‘Totally Beachin’ and ‘Stoked’ tanks, there was plenty of fun in and out of the water throughout the day. We were even lucky enough to have our friend Rebekah ofGoldfish Kiss out on the beach creating one of a kind eco-friendly beach bags.

In between heats, girls of all ages lined up for a chance to meet iconic Roxy athletes like Waikiki native and ASP World Longboard Champ Kelia Moniz, four-time World Champ Lisa Andersen, Rosy Hodge, and Bruna Schmitz.

Roxy Outdoor Fitness: Reach New Heights In The Flexible Pant Collection

#ROXYOutdoorFitness Ambassador Rachel Moore wearing the Enhance Capri Pants &  Dawn Run Tee

Summer is here, and it’s time to get outside with your new goals, revitalized spirit, and fresh Roxy Outdoor Fitness essentials. Take on new outdoor challenges while rewarding your body with fresh energy, a renewed mind, toned muscles, and sunkissed color! Roxy Outdoor Fitness ambassador Rachel Moore thinks there’s no better way to celebrate Summer than to slip into the comfiest of Roxy Outdoor Fitness pants and tone those legs with a climb of any level.

Rock climbing works the whole body, but the leg muscles are used most for climbing. The quadriceps are the four biggest muscles in the front of the thigh that are used to straighten the lower leg from a bent position when stepping from hold to hold. The two muscles that comprise the calf, the soleus and gastrocnemius, are used to raise the heel. When you stand on your toes to reach for a higher hold, say hello to these muscles you never knew you had! Focus on using your quads and calf muscles to make sure you are not only strengthening and toning the right areas, but you are also using the correct technique so you don’t wear out your arms and shoulders unnecessarily. Your Roxy Outdoor Fitness Enhance Capri Pants will thank you for it!

Climbing will not only tone those legs, but will make sure it leaves you feeling sore! Be sure to stretch before and after every climb, as well as incorporating a warm up and cool down jog to get your heart rate up and break up the lactic acid. Happy Summer and happy climbing!

She wore flowers in her hair! DIY a traditional Polynesian Lei in Tahiti with Monyca & Kelia

She wore flowers in her hair. It’s all about flowers no matter if it’s the tropical print on your Tropic Paradise Bikini (like the one Kelia’s wearing), in your hair, or on your head.

Recently, the Roxy team traveled to Tahiti where there’s no lack of tropical treats and beautiful flowers scattered pretty much everywhere you look. It’s a well-preserved paradise and in between surf sessions served as the ultimate downtime DIY treat for team riders Monyca Byrne Wickey and Kelia Moniz.

Watch the Roxy Style Spy to get the basic how-to on making your own crown this Summer. Have fun getting creative with whatever flowers and natural elements you have available to you.

You don’t need to be in Tahiti to live the Roxy life! #DAREYOURSELF

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.

ab2

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.

ab8

 

ab4

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.
