Stephanie Gilmore

Six-time world champion surfer, Stephanie Gilmore, was born and raised in New South Wales, Australia. Stephanie has dominated women’s professional surfing since she entered the scene in 2007 – winning a world title as a rookie and following with five titles in as many attempts – an accomplishment no other surfer, male or female, has achieved in the history of surfing.

Beyond her six ASP world titles, Stephanie has 32 elite World Tour victories. For her triumphs, Stephanie has also been awarded both the Laureus World Sports Award in 2010, considered the most prestigious award in action sports worldwide, and has received two ESPN ESPYs for Female Action Sports Person in 2011 and 2013.

Stephanie is considered one of the world's most stylish female surfers- a leader in women’s surfing, carving out her own path between the highest competition success and her free surfing abilities.

From our saltiest groms to our World champs, we love sharing the stoke on a daily basis, but on June 20th we are joining our athletes and the surf community to celebrate International Surfing Day by heading to our favorite beach to surf, participate in beach clean up or soak up the weather with friends.

And to sweeten the deal, ROXY and Quiksilver are donating $10 from every boardshort and swim piece sold today to the Hawaiian Lifeguards. Because good karma swells and the ocean belongs to everyone.

Surfrider Foundation is hosting over 200 #ISD2016 events across the globe to enable every person to give back to their local beach or favorite surf break. Stay up to date throughout the day by following #ISD2016 on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook for all the fun!

To kick things off we asked our team to tell us what surfing means to them -

Surfing to me is this… Waikiki. To me Waikiki means family, it means joy and it means memories. There’s a feeling you get there that you can’t get anywhere else. There’s a feeling that I get when I surf a wave here, it makes me fall in love with this wave riding thing over and over and over again.

With just a handful of the world’s best scoring a golden ticket invitation to Kelly Slater’s wave lake, and with a strict no cameras policy in place we were itching to hear all about how perfect an artificial wave can be (especially when it’s designed in part by one of the World’s greatest surfers).

Steph gave us the lowdown and in the process shared some wave lake stoke we never knew we were craving.


Only a handful of surfers have been invited to surf the wave lake, what was that like?

One of the coolest experiences of my life. I had to go back a second day to see if it wasn't just a dream.

You had the pleasure of sharing the pool with Josh Kerr and Kelly Slater, was there a paper/scissors/rock battle to who got the first surf of the session?

Kelly was incredibly kind and seemed just as stoked to watch his friends ride these waves that they've been working on for so long. So both Josh and I were often given first waves of each session, which is something a lot of the crew suggested Kelly didn't often do.

What was it like surfing perfect conditions, rather than being at the mercy of mother nature?

It was one of the greatest feelings of joy I've had as a surfer. Knowing that I get another chance at perfection just moments later gave me all the nerves and excitement of surfing in the ocean. Kelly has created a wave with different sections and so each wave I rode felt more like a natural surf experience than I expected.

Does it remind you of any other wave on the tour?

Both Josh and I agreed that we felt right at home, like a perfect summer day on the Superbank at Snapper Rocks, with offshore winds and no one out!

The ocean is getting more and more crowded, do you think wave pools like Kelly’s will empty out or create busier line ups?

I'm not sure what kind of effect this will have yet but as Kelly said this is only a supplement for surfing in the ocean. Maybe people will feel more safe in a wave lake and therefore the oceans will be less crowded, I'm not sure, time will tell.

Did you miss the post surf salty feeling or is a barrel a barrel?

Surfing in fresh water is interesting but I didn't feel a major difference at all. Any type of water suits me just fine!


We love nothing more than long, warm salty days where we barely leave the beach and our beauty look is as simple as a braid and a twist.

Whether you’re spending your days by the sea this Summer or just chasing the look, our hair hero, Katie Neutz, is here to guide you through an easy braided bun with 6x World Champ Steph Gilmore.

We’re no strangers to the Tahitian islands and the warm, inviting Polynesian charm that inevitably draws us back time and time again.

For our latest campaign shoot we rediscovered paradise amongst the spellbinding azure lagoons, lush tropical jungle and whitewashed beaches of Huahine.


Jump aboard and cruise the clip above with Monyca, Steph, Bruna, Kelia and Zoe, then take a look at our latest collection here

Paradise found! Sailing into a Tahitian dream

Paradise found! Sailing into a Tahitian dream

With it’s name referring to the feminine curve of the island's mountain ridge and derived from the Tahitian word for woman, Huahine’s garden of eden landscape had us captivated from the moment we arrived.

We spent our days adrift, tracing the coastline of the archipelago on our sailboat, the Jovita. An Argentinean monohull boat built in the 1950’s, which set the perfect tempo for our stay. With our favorite bikinis and sunny essentials on board, we found waves, deserted white sandy beaches and turquoise waters teeming with cartoon-colored fish.

Seven days in paradise with an awesome crew sounds like the ideal holiday doesn’t it? For the ROXY team it’s all in the name of work, to shoot our latest campaign amongst the stunning islands of Tahiti. Fortunately the location delivers a cruisy vibe, laid back locals and more sunshine than you can handle.

Monyca, Steph, Bruna, Kelia and Zoe certainly made the head office team jealous as their dreamy #ROXYSneakPeek ‘grams filled our feeds. Here’s a round-up of our faves from the shoot and a heavy dose of travel inspo all rolled into one.

Have you ever wondered what Stephanie Gilmore’s go-to items are when she packs her bags for her French adventure at the #ROXYpro?

As her first event back on the circuit since April, we quizzed Steph on her favorite pieces that are a must for the barreling beach breaks of the Landes coast.

Steph’s Essentials for the #ROXYpro France

A good wetty definitely tops the list. With water temps currently hovering around 16-18 degrees C, staying toasty in the line-up is key.

Steph’s Nikon rarely leaves her side. Ready to document her travels and catch inspiring moments.

Whether it’s tuning out to focus before a heat or tuning in to her favorite playlist en route to the next destination, quality headphones are a must. (How fresh is the color!)

A great pair of jeans and a basic tee are a no brainer, they can mix and match back to almost anything and everything. #ROXYfitness gear.

A life spent in the sun and surf needs a sunscreen to match. Steph’s sunscreen is as natural as they come and doubles as a tinted moisturiser.

Shady lady. Packing an extra pair of sunglasses is a genius travel tip, just in case one pair disappears along the way.

Staying connected wherever she goes with her iPhone.

The perfect black ankle boot for any outfit or occasion, perfectly matching Steph’s rock-inspired, surf-chic day to day style.

Catch more of Steph’s unique style and travel inspo on her Instagram,Twitter and Facebook as she heads into the final event of the 2015 tour, the Maui Pro, Hawaii.

6x World Surfing Champion Stephanie Gilmore was awarded by the Surf Industry Manufacturers Association (SIMA) over the weekend with Waterman - more rightly Waterwoman - of the year 2015.

As the second female to claim the honor, Steph is in good company with fellow ROXY team rider and surfing legend Lisa Andersen receiving the trophy in 2007.

Not only is she a fierce competitor and gifted athlete in the water, but she's also a great representative for surfing culture at large and an excellent role model. Steph is always smiling, showing compassion, and inspiring those around her. It’s a tremendous honor for SIMA to present Stephanie Gilmore with the 2015 Waterman of the Year award.” SIMA President Doug Palladini.

Go behind the scenes with 6x World Champ Stephanie Gilmore and legendary photographer Clark Little in Hawaii shooting the shore break and swimming with sharks.

As far as road trips go, this one is a bona fide rite of passage.

Road tripping through Baja is an adventure into the unknown with the promise of less crowded waves just waiting to be claimed.

Travelling south on Highway 1, with no real time frame or final destination in mind, we drove from sundown to sun up and arrived at paradise along the Sea of Cortez.

18 Hours to Baja

For over 1000 hot and dusty miles we explored some of the most remote and untamed coastlines, big sweeping sand dunes, vast desert landscapes and glassy turquoise bays.

18 Hours to Baja

Finding ourselves in the middle of nowhere was more beautiful than we ever imagined and it inspired our latest Summer collection.
