Being a young aspiring female athlete today is full of great opportunities. I was just checking through my mail this morning and came across an update from Roxy about the latest Champ Camp held by Lisa Anderson. The camp was about helping up and coming female surfers take their surfing to the next level.
From camping in Cardiff to Costa Rica, some of the best amateur girl surfers from Latin America and the US came together for a Lisa Andersen Champ Camp at Playa Negra to push each other and learn from the best.
4x World Champion Lisa Andersen identified the top surfers from a selection of online video entries and gave these “future champs” a one of a kind experience. Special guest Sofia Mulanovich—Latin American legend and previous World Champ—joined Lisa Andersen in Costa Rica to provide hands on coaching, instruction, and video analysis that helped advance the girls’ surfing.
Living the life of a professional surfer seems like a dream come true, however like all things in life nothing is given and these girls had to work hard at the Champ camp. The waves were perfect keeping the stoke high, which is what you need to get up at 5am, get out in the surf for 6am followed by video and one-on-one coaching from Lisa and Sofia. Breakfast didn’t come until 9, and was followed with more surfing and technical analysis and feedback. In the afternoon came cross-training—the future champs practiced yoga and learned the importance of stretching and surf exercises. The daily video review allowed Lisa Andersen to break down everything for the girls and play-back waves and help critique the girls’ surfing. Lisa and Sofia also provided the future champs with media training and interviewing, preparing them for their career as a professional surfer.
The camp was a great success with Nikki Viesins (FL), claiming 2nd place at the East Coast Surfing Championships in the women’s pro division shortly after the Champ Camp and Leilani McGonagle, claiming two national titles in Costa Rica just 5 days after the camp! Plus keep your eyes out for Tatiana Weston-Webb (HI) Surfing America National Champion, Lucia Cosoleto (Argentina), Melanie Guina and Vania Torres who surf for the Peruvian National Team, Leilani Aguirre (Peru), Adela Recordon (Chile) all looking for spots on the tour in the near future.
Whether it is surfing, snowboarding, mountain biking or any other action sport the girls are taking center stage and showing the guys that we are stepping it up. These up and coming girls are holding their own and laying down tricks that the average guy would love to be able to do!! With more Champ camps being held and the older girls providing opportunities for the younger girls I am excited to be apart of the future of Women's Action Sports!

It’s an unspoken rule that the day you have a comp or an event on a mountain, it will dump, pour, or get socked in. A day with respectable visibility is a score. You don’t bank on bluebird and you certainly don’t expect a spectacular day of sunshine. Yet a cloudless sky and sun strong enough to deliver serious goggle tan is exactly what Mother Nature doled out to complement Roxy’s first ever B.C. Ride Day on Grouse Mountain this weekend.
2012 Roxy Snow Pro happening now!
Posted: 09 Feb 2012 10:09 AM PST
The world’s best female snowboarders are flocking to Austria this weekend for the ROXY SNOW PRO. This 5 star TTR slopestyle event is being held under the lights at Nightpark Saalbach Hinterglemm and will feature riding from the girl’s at the top of their field, like Roxy’s own Olympians Torah Bright and Ty Walker. Did you know women’s snowboard slopestyle will be in the next Winter Olympics? With that kind of goal on the horizon I have a feeling we’ll see history made at the Roxy Snow Pro, with women pulling out tricks like 900s, 1080s, and maybe the first double cork in women’s competition. So tune in Friday to Roxylive.com and see olympic hopefuls battle it out for the chance at $25,000!

The winter X games is one of the highlights in the freeski and snowboard competition world. This year the shadow of Sarah Burke's tragic accident hung heavy with all the athletes. Sarah's family along with the community of winter extreme athletes had a chance to honor her memory with this amazing tribute.
Thanks to Roxy for the great blog entry below, highlighting a great Winter X games and how the community honored Sarah.
Board bags are zipped up, skis packed away, and red tail lights line the road leading out of Aspen as another Winter X Games comes to a close and the world’s best freeskiers and snowboarders disperse to their next mountain adventures. And while they may all go their separate ways this week, whether to the next contest, photoshoot, or distant backcountry terrain, they all leave with a renewed sense of love for the snow community they are so lucky to be a part of. This is one of many valuable reminders that the passing of freesking legend Sarah Burke has inspired.
X Games practice began mere days after the snow community was faced with the loss of one of its brightest stars. This devastating news left a gaping hole in the hearts of all in attendance. But as the practice days turned into competition days, signs of Sarah began to pop up. At first it was the purple ribbons with “Sarah” hand written on them. Then red “Sarah” stickers and blue “Celebrate Sarah” stickers appeared on helmets, boards, skis and goggle lenses. Next came the white armbands embroidered with her name and a snowflake (a nod to one of her many nicknames). By the evening of the beautiful tribute that ESPN organized in honor of Sarah, reminders of Sarah were everywhere, and it was clear that she was with us and would never be forgotten.
The athletes did not let their grief hold them back, but filled with love for Sarah, they rode strong and surely made her proud. By the weekend finals, white Sarah armbands emblazoned almost every shoulder– from Sarah’s fellow skiers to boardercross racers, and even Shaun White himself– it seems that everyone found strength in Sarah.
In fitting tribute, her close friends and fellow Canadian Olympic freeski teammates won gold in both women’s freeski events with performances that are sure to help further Sarah’s efforts towards getting recognition for women in freeskiing (see Kaya Turski’s mind blowing slopestyle run and Roz Groenewoud’s 14 foot superpipe airs). Fellow Roxy teammate Kjersti Buaas wore a Sarah sticker and armband as she rode her way to a bronze medal in women’s snowboard slopestyle. And snowboarders Kelly Clark, Marc McMorris, Jamie Anderson, and Shaun White all wore the arm band to gold medal victory.
By the end of X Games 16, the armbands, stickers, and ribbons came to symbolize more than just the memory of Sarah, they are a symbol of the bond tying the snow community together. In wearing them we recognize that we are a family until the end. Sarah symbolizes all that draws us to the mountains and to each other: a shared love of snow and the endless possibilities it presents, the exhilaration of learning something new and pushing ourselves, and the ultimate joy of playing in the mountains with those you love.
Thanks to Roxy for posting such a great Blog, check out their blog online, keeping us up to date on all things Roxy!

Back in August we announced the premiere of Peep Show Films latest creation ‘Winter Wars’ on the Roxy Blog…2 months later, the all girls snowboard video project has gained loads of notoriety and was recently awarded ‘Best in Lo-Fi’ by ESPN. If you haven’t had a chance to see the film yet – it’s a must see!
We phoned in Robin Van Gyn who’s been busy soaking up the last bit of sunshine while surfing Mexico before the Winter season kicks off to congratulate her and the rest of the Winter Wars team.
Here’s what Robin has to say about the film, “Peep Show has made 4 films to date and I have been lucky enough to work with them on their last 2 films. The Lo-Fi process with Peep Show has been nothing short of amazing, girls filming each other on budget snowboard trips has made for a less serious take on snowboarding while keeping the progression alive. Great experiences make for great film. High fives to the Peep Show Crew!”

Sarah Mason Climbs World Rankings After Third Placing

Sarah Mason has rocketed up the Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) Women's World Rankings to fifth after placing third at the Sri Lankan Airlines Pro completed at Arugam Bay, Sri Lanka yesterday (Sunday 4th September).
Mason jumped up five places on the rankings and now has a serious chance of qualifying for the 2012 ASP Women's World Title Tour as a spritely 16-year-old surfer. Should Mason qualify she will become the second youngest surfer ever to qualify for the tour behind Tyler Wright (AUS) who qualified this year also as a sixteen year old.
Mason steamrolled her way through an impressive line up of international surfers at the six-star event that was held in Sri Lanka. It was the first time the ASP Women's World Tour had frequented Sri Lanka with Arugam Bay providing a perfect right hand point break wave which clearly suited the young goofy foot surfer.
Mason was eliminated in the semifinals by American surfer Lakey Peterson 12.75 vs 10.20. Peterson went on to place second to Courtney Conlogue (USA) in the final.
Before her loss, Mason eliminated ASP World Title Tour surfer Jessi Miley - Dyer (AUS) in the quarterfinals.
"It was kind of slow so I knew I had to get the right waves," Mason said. "I'm trying not to think about the semis, I just want to keep going under the radar" added Mason before her narrow loss to Peterson.
Early in the event Mason also defeated 2004 ASP World Champion Sofia Mulanovich (PER), event wildcard Nikki Van Dijk (AUS) and young French upstart Alize Arnaud. She also beat Peterson in the early rounds of the event but the two surfers progressed through to the next round and later met up in the semifinals where Peterson exacted revenge for her earlier defeat.
The result secures back-to-back third placings for Mason, her last being at the Swatch Girls Pro in France held during June. Mason also placed ninth at an event in Australia earlier in the year.
Paige Hareb (Tara) also contested the Sri Lankan event placing 13th after being defeated by Nage Melamed (HAW) and Lakey Peterson. Hareb is now ranked eighth on the Women's World Rankings and is also well in contention to requalify for the 2012 ASP Women's World Title Tour.
There are two further events to contest before the end of year rankings will be finalised. The Cabreiroa Pantin Classic Pro will be contested from the 15th of September. The Billabong Azores Island Pro is scheduled to take place from the 26th of September.
Mason and Hareb need to finish inside the top six surfers on the rankings to qualify for the 2012 ASP Women's World Tour.
