European surfers in California for the Volcom totally Crustaceous Tour global Championships 2015

On the 10th of June, a group of up and coming European surfers converged to California for 2 weeks, to compete at the 2015 Volcom Totally Crustaceous Tour global Championships. The group consisted of Camilla Kemp, Joao Moreira and Alfonso Antunes from Portugal, Ariane Otxoa and Lander Davila from the Basque Country, and a heavy French crew with William Aliotti, Charly Quivront, Jordan Oueslati, Nomme Mignot, Lens Arancibia, Justin Becret and Marco Mignot, who all got their trip paid by Volcom after qualifying through the European leg of Volcom’s TCT. As a mascott, little Noa Dupouy from France joined the crew after qualifying for the competition in Hawaii.

The Volcom totally Crustaceous Tour global Championships 2015 gathered surfers from all around the world, and this year the main event was held at the world-class wave of Lower Trestles but due to a busy schedule, the first rounds of the competition were run in Newport Beach 10 days prior, which gave the surfers a little free time to kill the jetlag, wander around, train, and get a taste of the life in Orange County, California.

Check out the photos below for a little photo reportage on what went down on the side of the competition during those two weeks.

And see you all for the next Totally Crustaceous Tour Europe season starting soon!
