The sun was shining, the wind was offshore, and even if it was not as pumping as last year, the waves were super fun, and more 120 kids from France, Tahiti, and Spain ripped as hard as ever!

Because of the forecasts, the Girls and Pro-Am divisions surfed on Saturday and Squids, Groms and Juniors on Sunday.

5Volcom-15

The girls battled hard to catch the best waves, and even if the pretty surprising early round loss of Anna Moreau, the rest of favorites were in final and at the end Delia Delanne won just front of Camille Davila.

6Volcom-2

Before his Pro-Am final, Tom Cloarec took the cake in the Air Division with a huge frontside reverse air and won 250€ in cash!!

The last heat of the day was the Pro-Am final and it was a dramatic one, with the last wave of the heat going to TCT competitor Aldric God, which was the best wave of the heat, sealing the victory. Charly Quivront finished runner up and just missed out on the 500€ cash, Tom Cloarec also made the podium and the Basque surfer Ethan Egiguren earned his Euro TCT Champs qualification with the 4th place.

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....
