RESULTS | Totally Crustaceous Tour | Karramarrofish surf series, Anglet, France
The Karramarrofish Surf Series went down this past weekend in Anglet, France, with some fine surf conditions and a little taste of summer weather. It was the last event of the European leg of Volcom’s Totally Crustaceous Tour 14-15 (TCT). A lot of surfers signed up from all over Europe, to get a last chance to qualify for the World TCT Championships in California. The battle was fierce in the ever-changing conditions of the South West of France, and the drama levels were high, adding extra flavor to this contest. Imanol Yeregi getting some tube time right before breaking his board in the shorebreak Check out the photo recap below for a detailed story of what went down during those 2 days! Contest results are below together with the list of surfers who get a flight ticket + accommodation to the World Totally Crustaceous Tour Championships in California (Newport Beach and Lower Trestles). Thanks a lot to everyone who made it to this contest and everyone that helped organize it: Mairie d'Anglet, Anglet Surf Club, Skull Candy, Hoff and BubbleGum wax, Rico for the food and high times, the judges, Alex Lesbats for the photos and all our staff. Marco Mignot won in the Groms division with moves like this one, getting a plane ticket to California in June. Iker Imatrian got stopped in the groms semis but showed some very mature surfing throughout the entire event On top of sick prizes for all finalists, Skullcandy lent some bean bags and longchairs for some extra relaxation in between heats Guilherme Moreira was in fine form all event long and finished in second place in the Groms division in a high disputed final. Lavafish Surf Series winner Lenni Jensen made the trip all the way from the Canary Islands but also got stopped in the Groms semis, but not without displaying his smooth carves. In the Juniors division, the level was also high, with surfers from all around Europe shredding the bowls on offer. Adrian Fernandez de Valderrama shows you how to go vertical It’s always good to include a slip and slide in a race for extra prizes Tessa Tyssen and Neis Lartigue Neis Lartigue was flaring into the 2nd place of the Girls finals Tessa Tysssen won the Girls division with solid turns like these. Girls were going for it and weren’t scared of getting smashed in the shorebreak. Surfer in green racing for an exit, offshore winds helped the sections to stay open but also can get you in some fun late-drop situations. Charly Quivront was in fine form but lost in the Pro Am semi finals In his Pro Am semis, Diego Mignot comboed everyone with two big airs Groms and Squids were frothing on the beach both days with extra grinds, games, loads of whip cream and flour… Imanol Yeregui got 3rd in the Pro Am division, you see him here on a backside floater on a meaty section Volcom TCT « veteran » Aldric God was also on a rampage all event, he broke his board on this manoeuver and was back out in no time to pass to the next round God is rocking a Volcom sticker? His friend and Volcom team rider Paul Monborne lent him his board as he didn’t have a spare one after breaking his stick. Unfortunately Diego Mignot tweaked his knee trying to land this air in the Pro Am finals, we wish you a quick recovery Thomas Delplace searching for some shadow, he surfed like 20 waves in this heat.. Paul Cesar Distinguin is a well rounded surfer and was taking advantage of both outside grinders and inside bowls during his heats, he won the Pro Am division and a sweet 500€ in cash, find PC on tinder and give him some props!

Volcom to Puerto Rico!
What do you get when you mix Volcom and Puerto Rico? The answer should be Rum Punch.. But the real answer is a radical surf trip! The Volcom team went on spring break a little early this year and spent a week down in PR. Mother nature was on our side and she showed us a good time. Here's a taste of the action… Club Destroy -- Mauro Diaz, Pat Schmidt, Ricardo Delgado, Miguel Tudela, Balaram Stack & Noah Schweizer… Pretty heavy crew! Balaram is no stranger to PR. He's always flying down... Yeah, they like long walks on the beach and late nights out on the town. This is Mauro Diaz, our newest addition to the Volcom Family! He's a great human & an awesome surfer. We are more than stoked to have him on the team. This was our first time hangin out with Mauro and we instantly became brothers. He's a classic human in and out of the water. The man, the myth, the legend, Ricardo "Slims" Delgado. This kid is a hard worker. Thanks for taking care of us and showing us around, buddy! Miguel flew over from Peru to hang out for the week. Well, he wasn't really "hangin out," he took home first place in the Volcom TCT Catfish and punted some of the biggest airs! This was Miguel's second time to PR. We can guarantee he'll be back. Miguel's first wave of the trip… yep!  Noah is a sneaky little guy… Don't let his tricks fool yah! Mr. Pat Schmidt flexing as Mauro mimics. We found this sneaky little wedge on our fist day. Pat gave it a Rum Punch! Tinder... Pat speed blur day and night. Balaram sun setting.   The dudes hard at work? (Mullet & Ruddy Photo) Yeahhh, this is Mullet… Our creepy friend… oh, and filmer. These are Coconuts, probably the tastiest and most dangerous drink in all the land. Ruddy, Dane and Billy Hume can vouch.  Happy Birthday, RJ.

Gemma O'Brien - Experimental Lettering
After a few years of running lettering classes in Australia and around the world, I’ve been looking at new approaches to mix up the styles produced in my workshops. I wanted to create a class that diverted from traditional and calligraphic techniques, and focussed more on free-play with letterforms and experimentation with new and unconventional materials. I hosted the first Experimental Lettering workshop in Sydney at The Common Room a few weeks ago, and I’m excited to share the results! Participants created letterforms with a variety of new tools: sponges and doilies, paint and straws, plasticine, bundles of sticks with ink, and watercolours with eyedroppers. Everyone (including myself!)  got their hands dirty and came away with starting points for new projects and ideas. I’m looking forward to carrying across elements of this class to the upcoming Volcom School of Cool in New Zealand this May, as well as my New York workshop with the Art Directors Club next week. Happy Lettering! Gemma xx @volcomwomens_oz @mrseaves101

Volcom Featured Artist Series presents DAN ELDON X VOLCOM | The Journey is the Destination
At the age of seven, Dan Eldon moved from London to Nairobi, Kenya which ignited a lifelong fascination with the land and the people of Africa. As a teenager, Dan combined his passion for art, adventure and activism into a personal philosophy that he called, "Safari as a Way of Life”. On July 12, 1993, Dan, one of the youngest Reuters photojournalists ever, along with three colleagues, was stoned and beaten to death while covering the tragic conflict in Mogadishu, Somalia. At only 22 years old, Dan Eldon’s safari came to a sudden end. However, he left behind seventeen black-bound journals filled with drawings, writings and photographs. Through his art, his journey continues. We celebrate Dan Eldon’s sense of adventure and creative activism, in our latest Featured Artist Series tee collection, proving the journey truly is the destination.   SHOP DAN ELDON COLLECTION
