210 competitors bombard Volcom's Blowfish Surf Series in sunny Southern California

The best way to start off a great contest weekend is with a good ole fashioned pre-event signup party, which we got underway in usual Volcom TCT style. Friday afternoon the crew rolled into Hansens Surfboards in Encinitas and before we knew it the BBQ was fired up, the Groms were playing games of skate, and the good times were a plenty. After signing up half of the overall competitors in 2 hours everyone was amping and couldn’t wait for Saturday. Especially after taking a peep at the swell forecast.

Yeah, so it was this good...

The next morning bright and early we rolled in the Seaside Reef parking lot to see what we already expected, really fun looking, consistent surf. The day was looking up from the start. Right behind our convoy was a plethora of frothing Groms ready to help get the event site set up and get the heats in the water! First up was the Juniors division, and they made it known theirs was an act that was going to be tough to follow. There was such a great turnout we ran double beach heats from the first one almost all the way through the day.

Seaside Reef always brings a multi-talented group of frothing Groms, Levi Slawson and firecracker hair are in the category!

We pushed on through the day with tons of great waves throughout, and equally high scores to match. One thing can be said about the Blowfish Surf Series at Seaside Reef, it lacks no showing of great surfers chomping at the bit. Mother Nature blessed us with calm winds, bright sunshine, and consistently good surf all day just to help.

C

The surf continued to pump all day, Griffen Foy... Little dude big turn!

Moving into the end of the day spectators lined the seating area by the guard tower and packed the beaches to see what the remaining competitors had left in the tank. This was surely going to be an action packed finals all the way around! The Reef was firing and Palli’s was pumping as well, everyone was frothing.

C

The rocky beach setup at Seaside always make for a great viewing arena.

When it was all said and done Evan Gallen left with the grape juice shower for the crowd favorite Squids division, while Griffen Foy took top honors in the shredding Groms divison. Moving on Kirra Pinkerton snagged a win in the highly contested Girls division. Our final two divisions saw an always ripping Kei Kobayashi come over from Hawaii to snag the top honors in Juniors to seal up a seat at champs, and a very elated and ever deserving Kevin Schulz drenched in sparkling grape juice with a cool $500 to take home for the win in the Pro-Am division.

Jonah Carter fins out and giving the right the ole "going over."

Many thanks go out to everyone for coming down and making this years Volcom TCT Blowfish Surf Series, yet another great event. Thank you to our sponsors and also Hansens Surfboards for the continued support and we look forward to what’s next!

When the surf is this good it's fun to see the groms using their power game. Jack Boyes on the backhand.

You mind surf, Griffen Foy will make it reality.

If this spread doesn't make you want to reach the finals, nothing will.

The end sections of a Seaside Reef wave provide a perfect canvas for any finishing maneuver. Kadin Panesi showing us the ropes!

LONDON PHOTOGRAPHER LEILA AFGHAN IN NYC WITH SKATE GIRLS BRIANA AND YASMEEN
We were fortunate enough to sit with the 3 coolest chicks we know and ask them about everything skate. If you don’t know them already, you will. London based photographer (@leilaafghan), New York skater and model Briana King (@brianaking_) and Brooklyn babe Yasmeen Wilkerson (@yaz.so.mean) strutted their stuff in front of the camera and gave us some insight into their world. Leila, what's your favorite type of photography style and atmosphere to shoot? LEILA: I like weird and surreal - I shoot digital and film, but prefer the dreamy effect with film. When did you start taking skate pics and what took you there? LEILA: I started in fashion styling and photography, but am now progressing and combining documentary style, hence, taking pictures of me and my friends. Where is your favorite spot to shoot skate? LEILA: New York. Favorite spot to skate? YASMEEN: My favorite spot to skate is something new I've been fucking with called Delancey spot or BOCA LES spot. Its a walkway near the Willy B Bridge in Manhattan with a cement block, benches, curbs and other diy stuff. BRIANA: Coleman skate park. Where is the first place you skated? YASMEEN: The first place I skated was an empty parking lot by my house. I was too intimidated to skate in the open as I do now, and I barely knew how to push so I would take my board out there and try to ollie and get comfortable. BRIANA: Out front of the apartment. Where was the last place you skated? YASMEEN: LES skate park is the last place I skated. BRIANA: Blue Park Brooklyn. How many bones have you broken? BRIANA: 1 ankle. I attempted to ollie over 4 decks in front of a four stair, rolled my ankle, broke it, and couldn't trick or treat that night with my newly broken ankle. YASMEEN: My wrist (Smith fracture). Best thing about skating? YASMEEN: Best thing about skating is everything about it. The little lessons it gives you in humility, confidence, and persistence. Skateboarding taught me that strength isn't always physical. BRIANA: The homies! If I didn't skateboard I would be a lonely bub in NYC. And the worst thing about skating? BRIANA: There is no worst thing. YASMEEN: The fuck boys. ALL PHOTOS BY LEILA AFGHAN
