Volcom TCT Champs @ Newport Beach, CA - Day 1 Recap!

DAY 2 : CLICK HERE TO SEE FULL REPORT

It was quite a day for Day 1 of the 2015 Totally Crustaceous Tour Champs down at River Jetties in good 'ol Newport Beach, CA. Per usual, things started off with a bang and the qualifiers from around the globe gathered at the site, excited as can be, to battle it out for their chance at the ultimate qualification: the final champs event at Lowers on June 22 & 23.

Conditions were small, but fun! Straight off the bat we kicked it off with the first round of the Groms who were wound up like battery toys, eager to hit the surf. Following the Groms, the Girls hit the water with an equally impressive showing, giving the judges some tough heat decisions, and we rounded out the day with the Squids who were thankfully patient to wait for the surf to improve slightly later in the day.

Holy Stokes! a Real Life Happening - Different Stokes
Our friends over at The Berrics and The Skateboard Mag have also put together some rad edits showcasing some b-sides and alt-angles from Holy Stokes! a Real Life Happening! The Berrics 'Different Stokes' edit above is a prime example. Barcelona was one of the last trips we went on to film for Holy Stokes! a Real Life Happening and a good amount of the footage made it into the movie, but there was still some footage that just didn't make it. Below are a few more edits put together by The Skateboard Mag and The Berrics, stay tuned for more and don't forget to download your copy of Holy Stokes! a Real Life Happening. Pooling Around is a segment on The Skateboard Mag that explores all the drained pits sprawled out along California. If you've seen the pool section in Holy Stokes! a Real Life Happening then you know that we spent a great deal of time finding, cleaning and shredding these pools! This episode of 'Pooling Around' focuses on some of those missions. 'Across America' is another rad edit by The Skateboard Mag. Last summer we hopped on the road with our Wild in the Parks crew and followed them around America filming for Holy Stokes! a Real Life Happening with one lucky skater from the contest that was chosen by Caswell Berry. We gathered a lot of footage during that summer and this edit highlights most of went down! Lastly, The Berrics remixed some of David Gonzalez's footage from the Holy Stokes! a Real Life Happening. Be sure to check The Berrics and The Skateboard Mag for more coverage in the coming weeks!

Dustin Dollin - Behind the Scenes - Holy Stokes! Nightmare Skit
During the filming of Holy Stokes! a Real Life Happening Dustin Dollin was battling a series of injuries and coming off filming for Vans' Propeller, so his body was in rough shape. Never to be the one to give up, Dustin still tried to film for Holy Stokes! a Real Life Happening, but yet again the injuries kept stacking up. Just look at his attempts at kickflipping into the infamous carwash bank! He tried that multiple times, each time putting him out for a couple weeks. Somewhere along the line Dustin had this idea to film a 'Nightmare Skit' heavily influenced by the one from Peewee Hermans Big Adventure. With a star cast including Caswell Berry, Omar Hassan, Dane Burman, CJ Collins, Andrew Reynolds, Shane Heyl, Jamie Hart Gary Rogers and Brewce Martin. Filmed in the span of two long days in the Volcom HQ parking lot and skatepark we were all happy with the result. In celebration of Dustin Dollin's birthday today (June 26th) here are some photos from behind the scenes and don't forget to download your copy of Holy Stokes! a Real Life Happening.

Holy Stokes! a Real Life Happening - New Zealand Trip
Back in April 2014 we took a trip down to New Zealand to visit our good friend and Kiwi skateboarding legend Lee Ralph with Grant Taylor, Daan van der Linden, Pedro Barros, Ben Raemers, Alain Goikoetxea, Omar Hassan, Rune Glifberg and Thrasher Magazine's Jake Phelps and their filmer P-Stone. We were also down there to film for Holy Stokes! a Real Life Happening and turned out rather successful as there was enough footage to warrant an entire section to our New Zealand trip. Photos from this trip appeared in the October 2014 issue of Thrasher Magazine which you can READ HERE. In the mean time watch this 3 part 'Bru-Ray' series filmed and edited by P-Stone and download Holy Stokes! a Real Life Happening.
