Eat, sleep, surf repeat! As it warms up for some and cools down for others, the ROXY team are out chasing new adventures. Plenty of surf, lots of smiles and a few surprises. Here's a look at what they have been up to this week:
THE LATEST AND INSTA-GREATEST: SURF, SAND AND SELFIES
9-5: Full Part Robin Van Gyn 2014
Living out of a suitcase is just how it is for legendary team rider Robin Van Gyn.
Chasing winter can seem ridiculous to some but after watching this edit, you will understand how a nomadic life can pay off. Whether its faces shots in Japan or whiteroom-ing in Italy, Robin seemed to be ahead of mother nature scoring epic powder before returning home to her hometown in Whistler, Canada.
Keeping her lighthearted personality alive, this edit not only follows her across the globe but also dropping cliffs, lines and pillows wherever she might be. Looking to get some winter inspiration, look no further, its right here!
Roxy Outdoor Fitness: Stretch it like Sally
Turn your pre workout stretching on its head with team rider Sally Fitzgibbons.
Sally combines a mix of dynamic and yoga inspired stretches to mimic the movement of her training, increasing her range of movement and reducing the risk of injury.
For Sally, replicating the movement when she is in the water is fundamental to enhancing her performance. With her ROXY Outdoor Fitness gear and yoga mat in tow, Sally shows us how it's done! Here are a few of her favorites you can add to your warm up.
Low lunge with a twist.
Stepping into a lunge and rotating your chest towards your bent knee, raise your arm and look skyward. This movement stretches the hips and relieves tension in the back. Hold for a few breaths and then repeat on the opposite side.
Downward facing dog.
Starting on your hands and knees, your hands should be beneath your shoulders and your knees beneath your hips. Curl your toes under and lift your hips upwards to make an inverted ‘v’. Press your chest towards your knees and press your heels towards the floor. This stretches your arms, legs and back all at once.
This is an excellent stretch to open the deep muscles of the hip.
From downward facing dog, lift your right leg up, fold it and place it on the mat.
Keep your right foot flexed to protect your knee. Your left leg is straight behind you. Repeat on opposite side.
Lying on your mat, place your palms by your chest and gently push upwards, keeping a gentle bend in your elbows and hold for a few breaths to feel the stretch in in your torso.
Extended child’s pose
From cobra pose, bend your knees and sit back on your heels with your arms extended in front. This pose stretches the spine, hips, knees and shoulders.
Lunge with a side bend
Lunge forward with your left leg, resting your left arm on your thigh, bend your torso to the right and reach your left arm overhead and to the right—stretching the left side of your body. Hold for a few breaths then repeat on the opposite side.
