North America | KIDS GET ONE LAST SHOT TO QUALIFY FOR TCT GLOBAL CHAMPS IN JUNE!

This past weekend marked the end of the regular season contest series for Volcom Stones Totally Crustaceous Tour in US with the Starfish Surf Series, and boy was it a doozy. Fittingly so the final contest on the schedule this year took us back to were it all started in the home stomping ground of Newport Beach’s 54th St.. With Volcom being housed right up the street and the history this wave has with the TCT, the tours regular season could not be more appropriately capped off.

The crew rolled into Surfside Sports right around the corner from Volcom’s HQ on Friday afternoon and got all setup for the pre-event signup party along with the crew from Wienerschnitzel providing free dawgs for the pack of frothing Grommies. The Groms packed in to Surfside’s parking lot to play some games, ride some skateboards, snag some swag from Volcom, Penny Skateboards, Rev’d Bar, and of course have some free fun from all! Not to mention while all this was going on we signed up about 100 competitors for the following mornings event that was filling up quickly!

Huge thank you to Surfside Sports and Wienerschnitzel for a great Pre-Party!

Saturday morning brought calm winds, super fun clean peaky waves at 54th, and a whole beach of fired up competitors chomping at the bit to get the event going. Everyone pitched in a hand to help our pumped up staff and next thing we knew the contest was up and running in no time. We sent the Juniors out first to test the waters and get eyes on what was in store for the rest of the day…a very high level of surfing and an event loaded with local and regional talent from all over the state. Everyone vying for those coveted final spots in this years Volcom TCT Champs at River Jetties and Lower Trestles in June.

It was all fun and games until Mother Nature threw us a heater of a curve ball. California is not particularly know for its East Coast style, out of nowhere, violent squalls. This day proved to be different and we had some weather come in being pushed by very strong winds, not to fret though our talented staff and helpful bystanders we were able to batten down the hatches, keep the contest pushing, and the competitors did not let the weather phase them one bit, they just kept on ripping!

If this doesn't just make you go awwwwwww...you have no soul. The Squids are the BEST!

We moved right into the finals and the competitors just kept raising the bar with the advancing rounds. When the event was all said and done Cole McCaffay snagged a win in the crowd favorite squids divison. Keanu Igarashi took the title with a dominating performance in a huge Groms division that started with 10 heats in the morning. The girls division was impressive as usual with Tiare Thompson snagging the win in the finals and securing her spot in this years TCT Champs. Next up was the Juniors final where we saw Parker Cohn snag the win in a highly contested division. Last but not least we had the Pro-Am final where Matt Passaquindici took home the win in drifty choppy conditions that still provided some diamonds in the rough that not of these competitors let sneak by un-ridden, that was an action packed final!

The little guys didn't seem to be affected by the windy conditions. "Name" capping off the end section.

Thank you once again Newport for being you and keeping us on our toes. Special thank you to Surfside Sports for providing us a great pre-event signup party and location and allowing us to have some fun with the Groms. Also a huge thank you to all the competitors and their families for coming out and making this Starfish Surf Series so special!! See you at Champs!!!

Volcom Launches 'Volcom Stone Made' With Release of FW16 Jeans and Chinos Collection
Today, Volcom introduces the Volcom Stone Made design philosophy with the launch of their FW16 Jeans and Chinos collection. Meticulously engineered for life on the road, Volcom Stone Made products feature the highest quality materials with groundbreaking technology integrated at the fiber level and an unparalleled attention to detail resulting in some of the most profound products in the market today. Designed in collaboration with Volcom's world-renown skate team and working with America’s foremost manufacturer of high quality denim, Cone Denim®, Volcom Stone Made jeans feature one or more of the following attributes; "Superior Stretch" with Cone's S GENE® technology, "Anti-Microbial" for stopping the stench of odor-causing bacteria, "Durability" for enhanced resistance to tears and abrasions, and "Water Resistance" for increased liquid and stain repellency. With 2016 marking Volcom's 25th year as America's first boarding company and Cone Denim® celebrating their 125th year milestone as America's premiere denim maker, the timing was right for the two companies to come together to bring to market first an unprecedented collection of performance stretch denim jeans. Included in the Volcom Stone Made collection is Volcom's exclusive introduction of "Anti-Microbial" stretch denim woven by Cone, as well as enhanced "Durability" through the use of CONESTRONG™, and "Water Resistance" via the application of CONEgard™. Staying true to this philosophy, Volcom's venerable chinos program also received the Volcom Stone Made treatment with the introduction of two new styles: the Gritter and the Stranger. Boasting similar "Anti-Microbial," "Durability" and "Water Resistance" attributes as Volcom jeans, these chinos are built to wear easier and last longer. Designed for Skateboarding, Recommended for Life. Taking a cleaner approach to the brand's timeless style of jeans and chinos, Volcom has streamlined their fits across the entire pants category and elevated the performance features on every pair of jeans. With their deep roots in skateboarding and using history as a guide, Volcom has taken the last 25 years of designing pants and scrutinized and modernized every last detail to create a line of jeans and chinos made from high quality materials and construction methods while maintaining the key signature details they've become known for. Every pair of Volcom jeans features felled interior stitching and clean finished pocket bags for added comfort and less chafing, nearly indestructible buckle button closure and upgraded dual finish hardware for increased durability, a hidden phone pocket and double belt loops for convenient utility, while the asymmetrical detail of the offset back yoke and the "V" belt loop remain uniquely Volcom.

Costa Rica's Gold - Surf Team Goes South!
So we took a trip to Costa Rica to shoot our all-new Fall boardshorts & swimwear collections, and instead of ending the story right now with "and the rest is history," we'd like to give you a little insight into our majestic journey to the rugged Central American country. Enter Balaram Stack, Coco Ho, Nate Tyler, Maud Le Car, Ryan Burch, Quincy Davis, and Andrew "Droid" Doheny. Picture a desolate rainforest and narrow unstructured dirt roads echoed by a variety of bird chips and animal calls only to be triumphed by thoughts racing through your head of "where's the beach and how fast can we get there." 3,400+ miles from the nearest home in California, obvious transplants (no help from Balaram & Droid's bleached hair), and a crew full of expensive surfboards and camera equipment is your scene. photos by Tom Carey Quickly finding the way to our newly-found two-week home w/ an epic pool inside a quaint little village, we linked up with local legend Tony Roberts who is a mastermind that paved the way for the community down here by designing skateparks and running various surf tours. After ripping through some fun spots inside the village, and getting weird in the neighboring jungle, we hopped on a friend's boat and made our voyage to the famous Witch's Rock. For any surfer, Witch's is a bucket list mission and our journey there was one for the books! Witch's Rock Our goal was to shoot the team in our new boardshorts and swimwear collections, get some rad action shots, explore the land, and simply have a good time on this journey through a quest for spiritual intoxication. And we got that. But we got more, a lot more. Take a ride with us through a captivating feel-good photo book from our Costa Rican adventure: Droid: pro surfer, pro model.  Maud Le Car (left)Coco Ho (center)Quincy Davis (right) Coco Ho Ryan Burch w/ one of his hand-shaped mystical twin fins Quincy Davis (left)Coco Ho (middle)Maud Le Car (right) Quincy Davis       Buddies Oh hey, Quincy Droid rips!

THREE STREETS TO BERLIN
From June 27 to June 29, skaters had three days to skate three Berlin spots and post a clip of their best trick at each spot on Instagram, tagging #Volcom3Streets2Berlin. Deadline for posts was Thursday 29 June, 4pm and the 8000€ winner was announced on that day at a Boat Party right next to the Bright tradeshow. Needless to say, the new concept surprised a bit the skaters involved who had to adapt their game, with no one-minute-run stress or jam session hassle, but also no one on their back to get the tricks done, to post before deadline, not get caught inside of the endless free beer parties, improvising themselves filmers for their buddies or struggling to find some Wifi or a power socket… In the end Eniz Fazliov took the win after an hectic day of skateboarding (rushing to the last spot before deadline), and the celebration party on the Volcom boat that followed is in the books. The spots saw plenty new tricks and some good friendly sessions went down, check out the top clips that were posted below, special mention to Andy Welther, Kris Vile, Karsten Kleppan, Jarne Verbruggen, Phil Zwijsen, Jelle Maatman, Daniel Spängs, Nils Ingemarsson, Bart Buikman and all the other skaters that entered ! Photographer Dennis Mac Grath was in town and wrote some lines about him documenting the three days « contest », enjoy his photos below : Flashbacks to the Life I’ve Lived Spending the Summer in Europe has always been a treat for American skaters. Whether it be traveling around to contests or in my case 13-14 years ago (yeah I’m old) it was living in Barcelona and sometimes not just for the Summer months.... This year I decided to come to Berlin, on a whim. I was moving out of my house in Los Angeles and a friend of mine offered me his flat here for a few months since LA life was starting to drag me down a bit. Once I arrived I connected with some people and was asked to document a free- form skate contest called Three Streets to Berlin. My career (if you can call it that) shooting skate photos lasted from 1995-2005 although I still work in and around the skateboarding world quite a bit....these days I am more focused on documentary projects, etc so it was a pleasure to get to document skaters once again for a few days out skating in the streets. I still skate a lot but don’t have my camera with me as much as I used to when out skating and I mostly skate with my old fart friends back home so I’m not around the kids much anymore. All I can say is things haven’t changed much other than the level of skating....skateboarders are the realest, rawest individuals I’ve ever known and I am so glad to have been apart of this culture for the past 30 years. All I can say is I met some cool ass talented kids this week. Skateboarders rule the world.... Thanks to Julien and Bemo at BLAM, Volcom, and especially Lucas Fiederling for bringing me out in the streets for the past 3 days. Please enjoy.... - Dennis McGrath   Volkspark "the tit" session in full swing....
