Roxy Davis is proudly ‘Capetonian’, having grown up in Kommetjie, Cape Town. Roxy is a seven times South African Surfing Champion, professional Surf Coach and business owner with a real zest for life and adventure!
Out of the water Roxy has achieved a great deal academically. She has completed an Honours Degree in Psychology and Communication through the University of South Africa (UNISA), building on her initial qualification in Sports Psychology.
Roxy’s passion in life is surfing and teaching people to surf. She is inspired by the opportunity of giving back to surfing all she has received from this amazing sport. Roxy started surfing at the age of 12, which is widely regarded as being rather late in life. However she very soon started achieving exceptional results throughout her competitive surfing career. Progressing from school champion to club champion and then rapidly progressing to both Provincial and National champion.
Roxy founded her Surf School in 2002 with an umbrella on Muizenberg beach and a clear vision of where she wanted to go with the concept. Her dreams became a reality far sooner than she had anticipated. Growing from a dream of teaching forty girls a week quickly turned into 200 girls within the first Programme intake. The umbrella soon gave way for a share of half a hardware store for storage, and later into opening her own Surf School facility, which she aptly named the Roxy Surf Club.
