How to Become a Roxy Model

March 2, 2009

Roxy Board Shorts

So you’ve seen them in the catalogs, you’ve seen them in the magazines, in the ads — everywhere around the surf stores. You want to be one?  Well, the first thing you always want to make sure you do is take care of yourself. Take care of your body. The prototype that they have for Roxy models is, of course, having a young teen with, you know, tanned skin, tight body, firm…you know, everything where it’s supposed to be. Also, they’re usually looking at the bodies that have, you know, at least a slightly some abs, long, maybe skinny legs, but athletic legs — everything that looks in shape. Also, they’re looking for a tanned skin, not a burn from a tanning salon skin, but more of a natural skin. And the great way to achieve that tanning skin is, of course, practicing sports that go with Roxy, like surfing or swimming. This is definitely going to get that perfect style that you need to get for yourself. So once you’re all set in your image, you’re now going to take the next step to expose yourself. You need a comp card of, of course, you pictures with your bathing suit — of course professional pictures that you’re going to be taking — and actually make a portfolio. You want to send those to agencies. And once you are interviewed by the agencies, the first thing you want to make sure is you make them clear what your goals are. You want to be a Roxy model and that’s what you need to tell them and let them know. After that, it’s just going to the casting, always making sure you’re on time and winning those casting directors and photographers over.
