A fun look at little rippers 7 year old Sky & her 4 year old brother Ocean. These AWSM kids headed back to their home in Japan after their month long stay in California that was filled with skating, In & Out Burger, surfing, Pizza Port, contests, parties, & friends. But we know we will be seeing more of them here in California very soon!
P.S. We love seeing Sky rocking our new girls line of Girl is NOT a 4 Letter Word tee's and her bright pink GN4LW beanie.
Miss you little rippers!!

Another great lesson that there is more to sport than just competition.... Whatever you do, do it for the LOVE of it. Bruna has a great story to share that proves you can create a successful career in action sports that doesn't always involve competitions or rankings.
Professional surfer and international model Bruna Schmitz reveals an intimate first-hand account of her life in the self-titled short film, Bruna.
Bruna, directed and edited by filmmaker Tyler Haft, is an inspiring story of humble beginnings for the professional surfer born and raised in the small fishing community of Matinhos, Brazil. At the age of 9, Bruna discovered a passion for the ocean and surfing, which lead to a future of travel and opportunities beyond the village borders. With these opportunities came difficult sacrifices of leaving family members behind in pursuit of her dreams.
“In the beginning it was hard to face the fact I was traveling alone in the world,” Bruna explains of her teenage years. “Over time, fear and insecurity turned into willpower.”
In 2003, with over 30 surfing titles to her name, Bruna became the youngest surfer to win a Brazilian pro event and soon after signed with Roxy at the age of 14, becoming the youngest Brazilian to turn pro. She then went on to qualify and compete alongside surfing’s elite on the WSL World tour from 2008-2010 before choosing to shift her focus away from competition. Since then, she has amassed an impressive portfolio traveling globally as a Roxy athlete and international model, shooting with Sports Illustrated, Estee Lauder and more. In 2013, she moved to Hermosa Beach, California where she now serves as an ambassador for Roxy, Sambazon, YogaWorks and important causes like Heal the Bay.
