Quincy Davis On Beach Beauty

It's already a little while since Quincy Davis visited the Vogue office to share her beach beauty tricks, but after hanging at the Swatch Girls Pro contest in our backyard the past couple days, and seeing so many burnt beach blondes, we thought it'd be good to share it again in case you missed the story. Enjoy!

When Quincy Davis arrived at the Vogue offices on a recent Wednesday afternoon, it was nearly impossible not to notice her quintessential blonde beach hair and tawny, poreless skin. Standing in stark contrast to the office set, the 19-year-old Volcom-sponsored surfer has built a life on her days in the sun.

A Montauk native who has been surfing since she was seven, Davis has learned a thing or two about making the look work for her. Days spent carving out lines on waves from Australia to Puerto Rico or hitting her favorite breaks in Hawaii and the Maldives may leave her little time for makeup, but they require a professional-level knowledge of hair and skin protection. Here, Davis sat down to talk to us about the best waterproof sunscreen, après-sun hair treatments, and the most energizing meal in the Hamptons.

You’re outdoors and on the water all day. What do you use to protect your skin?
I’m constantly in the sun, so I’m always trying to protect my skin as much as I can. When I’m surfing, I always wear Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Cream+ because it really stays on in the water. I’ve been using it for five years, so I trust it. I don’t wear makeup when I surf, but that sunscreen is a little tinted, which helps. When I’m out of the water, I like wearing Coola SPF 30 on my face, because it’s really soft on your skin, but isn’t too thick or greasy. It doesn’t feel like it’s blocking your pores.

What about skincare?
I’m always traveling on planes and being exposed to different climates, so I have to stay moisturized. I wash my face with Fresh Soy Face Cleanser because it’s gentle and use the Clarisonic. At the end of the day, I just want to get everything off, especially the sunscreen, and the Clarisonic takes care of that. I’m really into oils right now—I think they hydrate my skin the most. Colbert MD Illumino Face Oil works really well for me. I put it on after I wash my face to give my skin a good glow.

How does surfing and traveling affect your hair?
My hair gets fried from the sun and from being in different types of water. I’m always trying to restore moisture and keep it as healthy as I can. Before I go in the water, I put Moroccan oil at the tips of my hair and in the front because that’s the part that gets the most sun. Twice a week, I do the Kérastase Masque Elixir Ultime to soften my hair and make it more manageable, and after I shower, I always put in Bumble and Bumble’s Quenching Complex to hydrate it.

Do you get any salon treatments?
After being away for a few months, when I get back to Montauk I go to nearby AKF Salon and get a Pre Art clarifying treatment to strip all of the bad water out of my hair. It makes your hair a lot healthier. I’ve gotten a Keratin treatment a few times to restore protein. It helps tame my hair.

You’re so fresh-faced. Do you ever wear makeup?
I do wear makeup occasionally when I’m going out with the girls or out to dinner. I’m a fan of Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer because it has SPF, it moisturizes, and gives me an even complexion. I’m a big fan of natural-looking makeup, like NARS Orgasm blush and Laguna bronzer duo. For my eyes, I just discovered Blinc mascara, and I’m a really big fan of the way it volumizes and lengthens. My eyebrows get really light from the sun, so if I want to make them pop more, I love the Lancôme eyebrow pencil.

Being a professional athlete keeps you in great shape, but do you do anything aside from surfing to cross train?
My shoulders and arms get the most toned from surfing from all of the paddling. It’s a good thigh workout, too. But I like to change it up with running, cycling, and boxing. I get bored of the same thing.

What do you like most about surfing in the Hamptons?
It’s fun to be able to surf here with my family and closest friends. In the fall, we get a hurricane swell. The waves are better, and the crowd has usually left by then. But even this summer, there was a really fun day of barreling waves. My brother and I stayed out for hours.

Where is the best after-surf meal in Montauk?
I usually go to my brother’s restaurant, Happy Bowls, for an acai bowl. It’s the perfect re-energizing meal for me after a day at the beach.

Artist Mike Parillo on Visiting Hawaii and Deciding to Never Come Home
Finding salvation in surfing, Mike Parillo escaped to the North Shore of Hawaii and never came home. Parillo's early passion for the mountains and snowboarding has led him around the world. A Volcom contributor since '91, dating back to the formative tribal years of the Stone, Parillo grew up in Los Angeles in the 80s at the apex of the exploding skate, surf, snowboard and youth culture movement. These influences were profound and put him squarely on the path he walks today as one of a respected and leading artistic visionary in the action sports industry with over two decades of credible work to his name. Mike Parillo painting the Volcom Pipe Pro mural on the porch of the Volcom Pipe House An icon in the snowboarding universe and the artist behind the artwork for Volcom's 1994 snowboard film, The Garden, Parillo's early passion in the mountains recently turned to the beaches in Hawaii where he fell in love with surfing. Having traveled the globe following his passion for snowboarding and art, then finally settling in Los Angeles, he decided to leave everything behind for a new life in Hawaii. Having made his home near the Volcom Pipe House on the North Shore, Parillo expresses that the rewards for chasing his passions far outweigh any of the downfalls or sacrifices he has made. Nowadays, he's is in his preferred state of mind, frequently visiting the house to hang out with the crew, surf out front and painting freely, having left behind stress of timelines and due dates on the mainland. "I'm definitely happiest when I'm not depending on my art to sustain myself. I'm happiest when I'm creating just to create."

Volcom Welcomes Hailey Langland to Global Snow Team
Hailey Langland has been making a name for herself since she started snowboarding at age five. She exists in changing time zones, her passport stamped with groomer laps, take-offs and landings. She's got a front three that floats for days and radiates a style that's beyond her years. She grew up paddling into waves and pushing down streets in beachside San Clemente, CA. She first made turns at Bear Mountain and now calls Mammoth’s Main Park home, both proving grounds for sovereign snowboarders. She's fluid and explosive. She has a method that turns heads. It's the kind of kick-out that can't be learned. It's built-in from birth, harkening the past that's built for the future. We can't be more excited to welcome Hailey to the Volcom Family. She brings an impressive past, a promising future, and an unmatched personality which radiates passion and perseverance. While she joins us now, she has always been destined to the Stone. It was only a matter of time for the stars to align, and that time is now. Hailey Langland. Photo: Mike Pham // @phamuel "I'm psyched to be joining the Volcom Family! It's a dream come true to be part of a family that's much bigger than just snowboarding. I can't wait to see where this journey takes me." Hailey’s collection of heavy medals is already plush, though she’s truly just getting started. She landed a first-ever cab double ten in the 2017 X Games and earned her first Aspen gold. See? Just getting started. She’s logged time on podiums around the world. Slopestyle? Check. Big Air? Check. Three years in a row, she’s won the Drink Water Rat Race—a banked slalom where just getting to the bottom is a victory. And Hailey’s been the fastest. Three times. She’s the future of women’s slopestyle, yet her ease and authority with which she puts down tricks stretches far beyond contest boundaries. She’s the future of women’s snowboarding. Scratch that. She’s the future of snowboarding. Hailey wearing the Taylor Jacket (available in 3 colorways). Photo: Vernon Deck // @vernondeck Hailey's energy and style are pure Volcom. I’m super hyped on what she brings to the program. She's got full approval from the team. It's on!!!" -Remy Stratton, SVP Global Skate & Snow Hailey is serious about style and truly loves to ride. It's visible in every turn she makes, every slash, and every air she attempts. It's not fabricated. It's natural. Established at a very young age. At only seventeen, she's both a beacon to snowboarding's roots and a flare to the future, lighting up what's possible when talent, grit, and creativity are fused together. She says, "I cannot stress it enough how much style matters. We're all becoming robots out there, it's driving me freakin' nuts." Hailey on a recent trip in Saas'Fee, a resort village in the Swiss Alps. She has been True To This since she first stood sideways, but now, with the nourishment of the Stone, she can further feed her freedom of expression, and we are so stoked to welcome her to the family.

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
