Kelia Moniz wins her second ASP World Longboard Championship

Kelia Moniz wins her second World Title

Roxy team rider Kelia Moniz has done it again by claiming her 2nd consecutive ASP Women’s Longboard World Championship after winning the Swatch Girls Pro China 2013 hosted by Wanning in clean 3- 4ft surf peeling across the point break at Riyue Bay. For the third year in a row this event has crowned the ASP Women’s World Longboard Champion, and also for the third year in a row the same two surfers have made the final, with Williams winning in 2011, and Moniz taking the title last year.

Kelia Moniz, just 20 years old, has cemented her place in surfing history by becoming a two-time ASP Women’s World Longboard Champion. Moniz struggled early in the event, but came into form when it counted on Finals day using her trademark elegant style, power and flow to lock in some excellent scores and take the win.

“It doesn’t feel real yet, it will sink it when I go home and celebrate with family and friends,” Moniz said. “I don’t feel like I was surfing my best at the start of the event, and I was a little shaken up going into the final because Chelsea (Williams) was getting 8-point-rides all event. Then I just pulled myself together, listened to some good music, said a prayer, went out there and tried to just stay on my board and it worked. Winning back-to-back ASP World Longboard Titles is unbelievable! I couldn’t be happier.”

Roxy Outdoor Fitness: Down and Ready to tackle the alpine with Roxy Outdoor Fitness ambassador Rachel Moore

Down and Ready to tackle the alpine with Roxy Outdoor Fitness ambassador Rachel Moore. Get her backpacking recommendations for your next adventure

“Keep close to Nature’s heart…and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.” -John Muir

It’s so easy to get caught up in the busyness of life. We get distracted with work and technology that we forget what it’s like to be still. Going to the mountains and the high alpine is such an escape. It’s an escape from the crazy pace of life and the constant noise that surrounds us. It’s where peace can be found, and where you can challenge yourself both mentally and physically.

ROXY Outdoor Fitness ambassador Rachel Moore recently climbed the East Face of Mount Whitney – no easy task! The time, amount of gear and energy exertion was at times overwhelming but totally worth it according to Rachel. Before attempting the climb Rachel always checks the weather and the first thing she packs is a down jacket, and for this particular trip her go-to choice was the Down and Ready Jacket. Priority number one is staying warm in the alpine, especially since temperatures often hit below freezing levels during the climb, on the summit and at night.

To get to the base of the climb it’s a four and a half mile cross country hike with over 4,500ft of elevation gain. It’s a stunning trek from beautiful pine forests all the way up to barren alpine lakes. Once at the base Rachel recommends spending the night to help acclimate your body; The night sky is always a treat up in the mountains. With no light pollution the stars are as clear as day, with dozens of shooting stars and even a satellite or two. As Rachel puts it, “The feeling you get up there is like no other I’ve found in this world.”. The size of the surrounding peaks, clear night sky, the sheer isolation and silence truly changes you.

In the morning it’s time to gear up, refill water bottles from the lake and head out. The climb itself is 2,500 vertical feet. This time it took about 5 hours. Rachel’s group was delayed as they met another climbing party and consequently stuck on a small ledge for over an hour in the wind and hail waiting until a good time to pass the other party. Luckily her Down and Ready Jacket kept warm!

When their group finally reached the summit they could tell a storm was moving in and it was starting to hail harder. They made fast decent and packed up camp, since it’s never smart to stay when a lightning storm is coming through. All in all it was a 14 hour day and one of the most physically challenging days she’s ever experienced.

Here are Rachel’s recommendations for your next (or first) backpacking trip:

  • Always do your research ahead of time! Make sure you know where you are headed, and that the trails are open and the weather conditions are good.Down and Ready to tackle the alpine with Roxy Outdoor Fitness ambassador Rachel Moore.

  • The basic packing list should always include:
    • a guide book or map
    • a comfortable backpack
    • water bottle and water filtration system
    • high protein food and snacks
    • stove
    • tent with a rain fly, sleeping pad and a good sleeping bag (I recommend a down 0 degree bag)
    • good hiking shoes, an extra pair of socks and lots of layers. (Long underwear, a fleece jacket, down jacket and a rainshell)
    • headlamp
    • and a camera!

 

Don’t attempt anything that you are not comfortable with. The mountains are not going anywhere soon but they will always be calling those adventurous at heart!

Roxy Outdoor Fitness: Sally Fitzgibbons shares the key components to a successful early morning workout

Put on your favorite #ROXYOutdoorFItness outfit & go on a run with professional surfer Sally Fitzgibbons

According to ROXY Outdoor Fitness ambassador and professional surfer Sally Fitzgibbons, the key to an early morning workout is putting on an outfit that ‘makes you feel like you’re invincible and can run at the speed of light’. Her outfit of choice for a cold winter morning? Standard Running Tights and the Ambition Running Tee paired with the  Down and Ready Jacket.

Here are Sally’s morning workout running tips that every girl should abide by (trust us! This girl is so in shape and on her game it’s inspiring!):

Warming up and warming down is absolutely key in preventing injuries.

Put on your favorite #ROXYOutdoorFItness outfit & go on a run with professional surfer Sally FitzgibbonsMake sure you have an active and lively warm up including; leg swings, lunges and only hold any static stretches for a short moment.

Post exercise take your time in doing a slow cool down jog and hold your stretches for an extended length of time. Make sure you sync your breathing with the stretches to go a little further.

Make your run fun and exciting…Go on an adventure! Look off the beaten path and try to always keep moving forward and not go back the same way you came!

Put on your favorite #ROXYOutdoorFItness outfit & go on a run with professional surfer Sally Fitzgibbons

Have someone drop you at a destination where you are just running to make it back home or to a friends’ house or your favorite cafe to meet up with everybody.

Use your surroundings wherever you may be in the world. Study your environment and find little challenges like a steep hill and create a super set around it.

3 sets of 5 sprint hills will send the heart rate through the roof and get the legs burning.

Timeless Traveler Collection

Timeless Traveler collection. Travel with us...

Traveling, exploring and finding ourselves lost and found all at the same time is what we live for. We travel without cause and with plenty of imagination. We are unchanged by time and gather as we go and did pretty much just that on our recent excursions in Alaska – all we needed was a cozy sweater like the Good Day Sunshine Sweater- with its ribbed sleeves, Anchorage pattern, dolman arm accent, and slight hi-lo crop, we might just have to snag it in every color!; a jacket or two, a sturdy sack to collect all our knick knacks (map, antler sheds, camera), a pair of mittens, a stylish hat and a sherpa hoodie just like this one.

Our most recent escapades took us soaring from heli-rides atop Alaskan Glaciers where the views were breathtaking and basically the epitome of a snow-covered dream. After our glacier getaway it was off to the Crow Creek Mine where we tried our luck to find some gold (failed), yet it served us well as an idyllic setting to craft some gifts, sit by a fire, shop antique mining gear, and meet some fury friends. Since we essentially melt at the sight of any puppy, dog, or feline, the next day sent us into fur-friendly overdrive when we met Caribou, Moose, and Snickers the Porcupine at the Alaskan Wildlife Conservation Center.

If you’re wondering what you can do in a day, don’t…just remember, it’s the foundation of any wardrobe that will make you an expert in adventure. Keep traveling and enjoy the Timeless Traveler Collection #DAREYOURSELF

There is no better way to start your day than an early morning workout in your ROXY Outdoor Fitness gear.  Brisk mornings in nature are synonymous with a fresh awakening and a renewal of the mind, body, and spirit.  Centering yourself upon waking and connecting with nature provides a sense of internal calmness and readiness to take on the day ahead.   Whether it is a quick run on the beach, or some yoga and stretching in the woods, ROXY Outdoor Fitness ambassador, Let the Sea Set You Free finalist, and owner of August_Fox, Taylr Kreutziger, kick starts her day with an early stimulating workout complete with good tunes, a light stretch, and her favorite ROXY Outdoor Fitness apparel (‘Enhance Capri Tights’, ‘Atmosphere Jacket’, ‘Frequency Jacket’).  For Taylr, the alert, clear and conscious mind, a product of this early morning ritual, is a tremendous platform for the creativity that goes into her artwork and designs.

Some quick and easy tips to rise out of bed and take on your early workout:

Go to bed early: By allowing yourself a good night’s rest, you will have energy to take on whatever tasks are ahead for your day.

Set out your clothes the night before: Taylr sets out her Roxy ‘Enhance Capri Tights’ and one of her favorite ROXY Outdoor Fitness Jackets before bed, so the first thing she is ready for when she wakes up is her workout.

Lastly, have a nutritious, balanced breakfast: Start your day with a banana and almond butter, green smoothie, protein shake, or big bowl of oatmeal for a natural energy boost that will last all morning.

With these tips and the motivation to start your day early, you will feel as if you can take on the world.  There is something to be said about challenging yourself, mentally, physically, and creatively, before the sun even gets around to rising.
