What a great day it was for the final day of the 2015 Totally Crustaceous Tour Global Champs down at Lower Trestles! Once again, we saw perfect 10-point rides, impressive surfing from all divisions across the board, and excellent wave and weather conditions.

The Pro-am division kicked things off with their Quarterfinal heats. Charly Quivront, Yago Dora, and Miguel Tudela all finished in the top spots securing their place in the Semi-finals, which saw excellent heat scores with 16 & 17-point heat totals. The finals were then set with Griffin Colapinto (US), Miguel Tudela (PER), Yago Dora (BRA), and Noah Schweizer (US). The Groms lit it up once again while standout, not just in the Grom division, but overall, Nick Marshall, dropping another 10-point ride with several impressive back-up scores.

The Groms Semifinals had standout performances by Mateus Herdy and Kade Matson, while the Juniors continued to battle it out with another top performing heat by Jake Marshall with a near-perfect score of a 19.50.

Girls Semifinals were stacked with an almost all United States draw. Throughout the event, Alyssa Spencer has been on fire and she proved once again why she deserved to be here, dominating her heat for Semi #1 while another in-form surfer Caroline Marks grabbed her two high heat scores and prepared for the final.

The Girls final included Alyssa Spencer (US), Camilla Kemp (PRT), Caroline Marks (US), and Kahanu Delovio (US). Right from the start, we knew it was going to be a close final with all Girls scoring great waves, but it was Caroline Marks who continued to show us what the level of Girls surfing has become, impressing the judges to total a heat score of 17.34 for the win.

Junior finals saw Jake Marshall (US), Wil Reid (US), Harley-Ross Webster (AUS), and Nolan Rapoza (US). Three Americans and one lone Aussie held nothing back out in the Lowers lineup as they traded off wave-after-wave, eager to get a piece of that $30,000 prize. In the end, it was Nolan Rapoza who bagged an impressive heat total to be crowned the 2015 TCT Juniors Global Champ!

The Grom final was a nail-biting finish! A favorite going into the final was Nick Marshall, who between he and his brother (Jake Marshall), have been on fire the entire event. Brazil's Mateus Herdy was a definite force and held the first position, pushing Nick Marshall, Kade Matson, and Robert Grillho III to find some gems. It came down to the last few seconds when Nick grabbed a quick left with a solid air reverse, but came up just short, leaving Mateus to be crowned the 2015 Volcom TCT Champs Groms winner!

The Squids final was electric with Jackson Bunch (HI) grabbing an early lead with two high heat scores and some solid confidence. Brayden Burch (US), Afonso Antunes (PRT), and Dane Matson (US) had close heat totals all between 10 and 11 points. Jackson Bunch held his ground and topped the other three competitors and was named the 2015 Volcom TCT Champs Squids Champion!

The Pro-am final saw Miguel Tudela (PER), Noah Schweizer (US), Yago Dora (BRA), and Griffin Colapinto (US). While the wave conditions were improving, the sun was out, the beach was packed, and the 20 & Under men were ready for action! A stacked final indeed, and we were not disappointed. Yago excited the crowd grabbing 7s and 8s all the way to the end of the end, doing air reverse after air reverse. But Miguel battled back by getting one of the best waves of the final at the very end of the heat getting a 9.6 and taking the lead.

VOLCOM ACHIEVES FAIR LABOR ASSOCIATION ACCREDITATION
In February of 2018, after years of being an 'affiliate' brand, Volcom was officially voted in by the Fair Labor Association (FLA) as an accredited 'member;' an achievement Volcom has had its sights set on since 2014. It's a badge that sets the brand apart and recognizes the commitment and diligence that has been put into their social compliance program over the last twelve years. Companies like Volcom that join the FLA commit to ten Principles of Fair Labor and Responsible Sourcing (and/or Production) and agree to uphold the FLA Workplace Code of Conduct in their supply chain. The Code of Conduct is based on International Labor Organization (ILO) standards and seeks to protect the workers who manufacture a company's goods. Brands can sign on as affiliates, but it takes years of implementation to bring their supply chains into compliance with the FLA's expectations to become and accredited member. The standards aim to achieve decent and humane working conditions in global supply chains and address important subjects like nondiscrimination, forced labor, child labor, compensation, hours of work, and more. In 2014, as a first step, Volcom became an FLA 'affiliate' noting that "The FLA provided Workplace Code of Conduct and Compliance Benchmarks that helped Volcom achieve the goal of making sure workers were not only receiving wages for basic needs and training for promotions to improve their lives, but also to be treated with dignity and respect." During its implementation period, the P.A.S.S. team at Volcom (Product and Social Safety) worked with FLA to: Adopt and communicate workplace standards Train staff to assess and remediate noncompliance issues Conduct internal assessments of facilities Provide workers with confidential reporting channels After a trip to Washington, DC in February for the FLA vote, it was confirmed that Volcom's efforts had been rewarded. "We're honored and proud, said Big Tony Alvarez, Volcom's VP of Global Supply Chain and the head of its compliance program. "It's been a learning process and a challenge, but a continuously positive one. It's been a real partnership between our suppliers, the FLA, and our teams internally. We're so stoked for this achievement and it's a win for all involved." Volcom's compliance program, referred to now as P.A.S.S., began in 2006 with the implementation of their first Code of Conduct and has steadily developed and matured ever since. Volcom's P.A.S.S. team is built on the FLA's shared belief that "The products we buy should not come at the cost of workers' rights." Their membership recognition reinforces that belief. Volcom's accreditation will be up for renewal every three years following a satisfactory FLA evaluation of labor compliance systems and activities during the timeframe.

INTERVIEW + OUTFIT INSPO W/ SKATER GIRLS DEIMANTE AND AIMEE ROCKIN' OUR GEORGIA MAY JAGGER SPRING COLLECTION
CHECK OUT THIS INTERVIEW WITH SOME OF THE RADDEST SKATER BABES SHOWING US THEIR OUTFIT INSPO IN OUR NEW GMJ SPRING COLLECTION Our favorite London-based photographer, Leila Afghan, is back at it again, snapping photos and hanging with Deimante Sprainaityte and Aimee Gillingwater, two skater girls who are not afraid to rock their own styles. We were able to have a quick chat with the girls while they rode around town in our newest Volcom x Georgia May Jagger Collection, a collection inspired by 90's streetwear. Keep scrolling for the interview and some major women's outfit inspiration! Tell us about the shoot locations! DEIMANTE: Ballroom is a DIY Spot in Buckinghamshire. An abandoned building that used to be offices. Around three years ago, local skaters located it and started building it up slowly into a skate park that is one of the best DIY spots I have seen. AIMEE: Soho and London. The land of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll. The London center of street and skater fashion. Soho is an area, as a musician, I spent a lot of time during my youth staring at all the instruments Denmark St. had to offer. It’s an interesting location as the collection was designed by Georgia May Jagger, the daughter of the frontman of the Rolling Stones. Soho has a lot of history attributed to her family. Do you prefer skating street or transitions? DEIMANTE: Both AIMEE: Both Who is your favorite skater? DEIMANTE: Nora Vasoncellos for sure AIMEE: Maria Dal Santo Do you skate goofy or regular?

Everything was hyped by music, and a delicious BBQ free for anyone with special thanks to our local partner BoardZone ! Gnu snowboards organized a bunch of jib boards for testing. Going further after quali time we had final runs , with plenty of mellow tricks- shredding all lines , doing transfers and strong combinations! Judges decided and pointed our first 3 best Volcom Rail Jam competitors. 3rd place that day was taken by Kuba Szkaradek for his nice style and technical lines. On the 2nd stage of podium we had our Volcom Man – Maciek Długosz who showed everyone that style matters and doing big transfers is profitable, he was unbreakable ! The best and the furious was one and only Rafał Sypień !! He blasted the strongest ones, he was the most creative and made a most varied trick combinations.

"Home, Sweet Home" with Joan Duru
Joan is a huge fan of barrels, which is why this video edit is packed with nothing but France beach break barrels. Before his start on the 2018 World Surf League Championship Tour, Joan enjoyed a short break at home, snagging a couple good days during a not-so-good winter. Good luck to Joan on the 2018 Championship Tour!
