  • The Roxy Fitness Challenge

    Yoga and surfing go hand in hand and with paddleboard becoming evermore popular, yoga and paddleboarding go hand in hand too!  The 16th July saw Roxy and a fair few yoga, paddleboarding and running enthusiasts descend on Fistral Beach for the Roxy Fitness Challenge.

    We caught up with Oceansportgirls instagram follower Agne who attended the event to see just why she took part and the benefits gained from being involved in such sports

    What made you want to take part in the event?

    There is something thrilling about the start of something new. It challenges the mind! The Roxy Fitness Challenge event is all about uniting girls across the globe and celebrating living an active lifestyle. It means all ages and fitness abilities souls are speaking one physical language. It creates a magical atmosphere, inspires physically, emotionally and I wanted to be a part of it. Trust me, its remarkable ;)

    Do you take part in Yoga, Running, or Paddleboarding and if so why?

    All people are different and that is amazing, it makes us unique and special. But I tend to fall into the "easily bored" category, so my physical routine consists of mixing up yoga, running, group exercises or long walks. I was lucky to have the opportunity to practice yoga with local teachers and founders.  I particularly enjoy outdoor yoga, being in such beautiful surroundings, it's like the sun, wind and sound of the ocean takes you to the only place where life exists at that present moment.
    Running for me is “need to think" time, time when I can reflect on what has happened during the day and a time to let things go.  At the Roxy Fitness Challenge event, I took part in yoga and running. I'm impressed with paddleboarding but haven't tried myself yet. It's on my TO DO list!

    roxy-fitness-challenge Roxy Fitness Challenge

    What advice would you give to other women wanting to take part in Paddleboarding, Yoga or Running?

    I think it's important to keep your mind stimulated, clear your mind and help you to see the bigger picture from a different perspective. A yoga mat is the safest place to succeed or fail, but you have to be open for that, open to falling and getting back up whether its physically or emotionally. Every woman should honor their bodies with these activities; all they have to do is show up and try their best. Grow and most important have fun!

    Billabong Pipe Masters 2015

    On the 8th December it will be that time again where we all gather round our laptops, computers and phones to watch the Billabong Pipe Masters 2015, the 11th and final stop on the 2015 Samsung Galaxy Championship Tour.

    Currently siting at the top of the rankings is Mick Fanning with 49,900 points with Filipe Toledo from Brazil just 200 points below.

    Toledo has come a long way, starting the 2015 tour at number 17 out of 34, he has stayed focused and that focus has paid off. This year he has won the Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast (Australia) , Oi Rio Pro (Rio) and the Moche Rip Curl Pro (Portugal).

    In an interview Toledo said "It's my dream since I started surfing and turned professional. I think only my family knows how hard I've been working towards being a World Champion. It's going to be a dream come true if it happens" - World Surf League.

    So stayed tuned for the 8th December to see who will win the title and in the meantime, why not recap Filipe Toledo's win at the Moche Rip Curl Pro Portugal!

  • Guide to a Summer Wetsuit

    A Guide To Your Summer Wetsuit

    It looks like the warmer weather is coming and with the school holidays not too far away now either, some of you may be lucky enough to be heading west to Cornwall for a week or two! (jealous!)
    One of the main things that is a must on a holiday regardless of where you are is getting into the sea and have a go at Bodyboarding or surfing.
    So we thought we would give you a heads up on what might be ideal for our dear English sea. Below you will find a few wetsuits and bits and bobs that we have picked out and are quite popular amongst our customers and staff to make your time away that bit more awesome!

    What Does The 3/2mm Of Wetsuit Mean?
    All wetsuits we have picked are 3/2mm wetsuits ideal for the summer months. What does this mean you’re probably thinking? It simply means the 3mm part is the thickness in millimetres of the neoprene around the core of your body to keep your organs warmer. The 2mm area covers your legs and arms. The reason for the difference in thickness is simply so the thinner neoprene offers more flexibility so you can carry out the sport in hand with ease of movement.

    Childrens
    Starting with the kids, we have a wide range of colours for the O’Neill Reactors, both in  shorty and full length suits. These offer a full dose of performance for a great value with technology such as FluidFlexTM (improving the movement in the shoulders and sleeves), and an adjustable super seal neck with a YKK back zip to keep the water out and you warm. These suits are an ideal entry suit for anyone that wants to get in the water!

    Some of the O'Neill Reactors Avaliable O'Neill Kid Reactors

    Toddlers
    Sunsuits for toddlers are perfect for wearing on the beach and dipping between the rock pools. They even offer UV protection so just like a rash vest would,  their skin is protected. With a back zip entry, they are a no hassle suit and won’t irritate. These are made out of neoprene and don’t offer the same warmth as a wetsuit would, but are a great all round suit. It’s ideal to get an O’Neill Toddler Reactor if you intend to head into the sea, these are 2mm thick and provide a bit more warmth.

    Men’s
    If you’re likely to give surfing a go then the Rip Curl Dawn Patrol is ideal. This suit is available in a chest zip or back zip style. Again another high quality suit for a great price. These suits are ultra-light with Rip Curls E4 neoprene offering all the stretch you need in the right places!  A great feature is the batwing system, this has been designed to combat those coldwater flushes (water entry) and get rid of the water so you can surf for longer without getting colder quicker.

    Women
    Finally ladies, there is the Womens O’Neill Bahia 3/2mm wetsuit. This suit was designed for those which wanted to bring beauty personality and confidence to the water. This suit is 100% super stretchy and has flatloc stitched seams so water can move in and out discreetly and most importantly keep you warm!

    All full length suits mentioned above have the right padding and support that your knees need to protect them from friction against the sand, pebbles or your board.

    Some people like to keep their feet warm too! We stock a range of boots and shoes for completing that summer holiday in the sea!
