Why I Wear Roxy Wetsuits
Who Am I?
Hi, wetsuit world! My name is Devon. I’m an ambassador for Wetsuit Wearhouse, as well as Roxy Wetsuits, Dakine, and Pom Pom Surf Wax. I live, surf, write, and wander around San Diego, California with my husband Scott and our one-year-old daughter, Avalon. My dad taught me to surf when I was nine, and we still surf together every Friday.
I always felt that there wasn’t enough surf content for women, even growing up in the heart of the industry in Orange County, California, surrounded by waves. In 2009, I decided to start a blog called The Tale of a Mermaid. I was originally inspired by Harriet the Spy and her quote:
“I want to learn everything I can, and I write down everything I see. I want to remember everything.”
I’m also inspired by the ocean and the way its salty air and sticky sand sneaks into my house every day. Nothing has taught me more about life than salt water, I think.
And finally… why I wear Roxy Wetsuits…
I’ve been riding for Roxy Wetsuits for about as long as I’ve been writing my blog, but I’ve been a fan of the brand since long before that. Roxy is a revolutionary company, not just in the surfing world, but in the fashion world too as they were the first brand to make clothes specifically for water women. They took the gutsy move in 1990 to start a line that fit girls who wanted to do more than sit on the sand. I feel their designs and mission to not only expose girls everywhere to the surf lifestyle, but to support and encourage them to make adventure and health a priority really speaks to me.
I love Roxy wetsuits because their design, style and material reflect and embrace the free spirit of an adventurer and ocean addict like me. Their materials and technology are always evolving which makes the Roxy suits consistently top of the market. It’s awesome that Wetsuit Wearhouse has such an extensive collection of Roxy suits, and I’m really stoked that well-made water products can now reach people all over the world who love to play in the water as much as I do.
