Roxy has been surfing since the age of 13. Originally from George, she says she practices as often as PE has waves. She entered surfing competitions quite regularly up until her first year of studies, after which she decided to focus on her studies.

Roxy says that whenever she feels she needs a break from the books she goes for a surf and that's her secret to balancing her surfing and studies. After Roxy has completed her studies she wishes to work for a year and then travel to Europe and Australia.

We wish her well with her future endeavours.
