What a fabulous combo: the artsy, French and fun Volcom Surfer Maud Le Car and the genius behind the camera lens, Australian Volcom Ambassador Elle Green. No strangers to each other as they had already met up in Australia a couple times to snap some lifestyle shots. Now however it was our European pleasure to have Elle on our home turf, in our backyard in Les Landes, on the coast of Southwest France.
Elle or @hellgreen as we all know her on instagram, was actually visiting Europe with her sister and as we always try to think of reasons to have fun, we set up this little shoot for one of our all time favorite papers, Surf Girl magazine.
Wanting to showcase both our spring and summer lines, we ended up just fooling around on the beach, as the surf was flat. We headed out to the little town of Labenne where Maud knew we could found this beautiful abandoned church right on top of the dunes.
After that, a good lunch and heavy tummy’s we couldn’t help but wrap up the day in our friends pool with some proper canon balls. The behind the scenes clip says it all.
We love our global Volcom family! The wonderful and eclectic mix of surfers, artist, photographers, musicians, skaters, snowboarders… you name it. All fantastic individuals and the cream of their crop.
