The TCT Seacow Brings the Holiday Cheer to New Smyrna Beach, FL!
The Totally Crustaceous Tour brought the Holiday cheer to the beautiful city of New Smyrna Beach, FL this past weekend for the annual TCT Seacow. With the freakish high tide that has been plaguing South Florida we were forced to move the event to Flagler ave in the heart of New Smyrna Beach. We moved the event from The Inlet to Flagler Ave due to the freakish full moon high tide. We rolled up the night before the contest for our annual pre-party extravaganza at Red Dog Surf Shop just up the street. We signed up 60 kids and shoved delicious hot dogs down the throats of all the screaming children. The night came to a close and with the thought of sugar plums dancing in their heads the children called it a night. Chauncey Robinson showing of just how playful the waves at Flagler are. The next morning we were greeted with fun 2-4ft surf and another 100 kids waiting to sign up. We ran through the day without a hitch and before we new it was time crown our Holiday Seacow Champion. Thanks to all who made this such a special event and Happy Holidays to everyone! Through the dunes the compound over looks the super fun 2-4 ft surf. Noah Schweizer is the local favorite looking for his 3rd consecutive win at the Seacow. Kids getting into the Christmas spirit with a little dizzy race. Float the Seacow boat. Corey Howell showing some super style though a Flagler section. The annual Flagler blessing take place before every event to make sure there are no little shark bites throughout the day. Matt Zaccaria letting the tail go a on his way to the finals. Even the contest directors get in the way of the mess every once and while. The waves stayed fun all day even through the extreme low tide. Chauncey again on his backhand attack. Young TCT legend in training teaching the kids the ins and outs of a proper crab walk. The sections at New Smyrna provide plenty of opportunity for high scoring airs. Squids had a talent packed day in more then epic conditions for them. It wasn't just airs going down, there were plenty of meaty turns to be had. The Watermelon winner could barely hold all of the prizes and still get a big taste of that sparkling cider. Daniel Glenn during his early round heats, he would go onto take the qualifying 3rd place spot. The winners from the 2014 TCT Seacow!

TCT Surf Series
Great Scott! Volcom's Greatwhite Event Hits The Lane!
One thing has come to be constant at The Lane for the Volcom TCT events, the surf is always there with bells on. This past weekend in Santa Cruz for the last stop of the Greatwhite Series was no different than the previous trip. The surf was pumping all day, and the competitors took full advantage of the gift from Mother Ocean. Aesthetically pleasing to say the least. The Lane has plenty of eye candy. We showed up dark and early on a chilly Saturday morning and started to unload the truck and get the event site set up before the sunrise, with the help of a grip of frothing competitors ready to get the battle going.  There is always a lot of talent in the Greatwhite Series and we were eager to see what the Groms had up there sleeves that day. They did not disappoint. With a dropping tide all day the level of surfing just continued to rise as the surf continued to improve. Up, up, and away. Sam Coffey in controlled flight. Couple of Squids about to take the plunge. Top to bottom. Take notes kids, Johnny Gunn, teaching class. Happy people, colorful backdrop. Free surfers getting a lesson in "This is how it's done." Like we said, eye candy for days. The Lane offers many different spectator viewpoints. The cliffs are getting a particularly special view of this one. Progressive maneuvers killed the power game, we think not. We had to move into our usual daylight savings time double beach format and the competitors took full advantage of the slot and center peak, battling and advancing into the later rounds where the surfing just seemed to improve all day. When it was all said and done we had another back to back winning performance and a sweep of the Greatwhite series by Willie Eagleton in the Pro-Am. Willie is a local Grom in Santa Cruz and you can easily tell he surfs these waves regularly. Following up behind him was Tyler Gunter making the long drive up from OC to snag the juniors title with solid surfing all day. Riaru Ito had a great showing at The Lane and took home his second win in a row in the Groms division, with Jack Conti owning everyones favorite Squid divison, and the very talented Ashley Held talking home the title for the Girls. And to the victors go the spoils. Tyler Gunter in winning form all day. Who won?? Who won!!?? Come on tell us! Winner winner chicken dinner. Back to back winner Willie Eagleton straight up and in the money. Sparkling grape juice, acceptable substitute for a shower. Izaiah Hansen Style for miles. Squids Winners! Your Greatwhite winners! We had a blast in Santa Cruz this year for the Greatwhite series and a huge thank you to all the competitors and families that came out to support their groms and the Volcom TCT!! As always a special thanks to our sponsors that make this all possible, Volcom, New Era Cap Co., Rev’d Bars, Surfing Magazine, and especially Trevor from Penny Skateboards for making the trek up with us and hanging out running games with the Groms all day putting countless smiles on countless faces! See you next year Santa Cruz!! Sticky grape juice Squids.

TCT Surf Series
The Starfish Surf Series goes off in near perfect conditions at River Jetties!
The Frog House was packed, but with free food and games no one was worried. Wooly stopped by to take some photos with the local celebrities! TK the owner of Frog House and Wienerschnitzel lover getting the Groms all fired up! The Sandman family doing some shopping for the Holidays! You know you want that sweater. River Jetties never disappoints, we can always count on fun surf and tons of screaming kids! If for some reason you weren’t in Newport Beach this weekend you may have missed out on yet another incredible Starfish Event at River Jetties…not to mention the signup pre party at the Frog House with TK dressed as a Weinerschniztel throwing shrimp on the Barbie. Wooly was there, Balaram Stack was there, and of course a small Army of amped Grommies were there, frothing and ready to get signed up for Saturdays event When the tide dropped out the waves began to crank!  Kevin Shulz took full advantage. Saturday morning brought early light with the recent time change and also our first view of what looked to be very contestable surf. As always the crew was there and so were the Grommies ready to help set up and get the Starfish event under way. We fought a high tide for the first part of the morning but the kids made the best of it and as the tide dropped the River Jetties sandbars came to life! Through the middle of the event and into the later rounds we were witness to some of the most insane surfing Southern California has to offer. You have to stay on your toes during TCT events, you just never know when the flour is coming. When it was all said and done Jake Kelley took home the coveted Pro/Am division, the giant check, and the $500 smackaroos. Also taking top honors was Connor Dand shredding his way though the Juniors, Rairu Ito grabbing the top spot in Groms, Dane Matson slid into the squids leading role, and Meah Collins winning out for the Ladies. It was a great day of surfing and we can’t thank our sponsors Penny Skateboards and Rev’d Bars for coming down and hanging out with us all day and giving us a break from the screaming children, also New Era Caps, Surfing Magazing, and of course Wienerschnitzel for keeping us feed all weekend. As always thank you to all the competitors and families that made this event so special! Gunner Day is no stranger to letting his tail loose in perfect River Jetty conditions. Games and fun went pretty much all day! Kevin Shulz shredded all the way to a 3rd place finish in the Pro Am division. Hoola hooping down the beach for the win! The Pro Am division didn't have the most kids, but it was by far the most talented. Jake Kelly show of how to make it through your heats! Penny was down on the beach all day making sure the Groms stayed stoked! I'm leaving on a "Jett" plane! Jett Schilling spreading those wings on his way to the finals! This young lady walked away arms full! With the Squids having 8 first round heats we knew we had the best ten and unders from the entire state. Cole Houshmand took down a respectable 3rd place finish in the Groms division. You can never go wrong with a 20 Grom deep sack race! The talent was second to none and you can bet Newport will have a fighting chance to take the win at TCT Champs. Top three finalists in every division scored a brand spanking new Penny skate deck! At one point during the day every single wave had an air section and the competitors were taking full advantage. Pro Am and Juniors finalists showing off all their winnings! Jake Kelly battled through an extremely close final just nudging out Newport local Colin Moran. Groms and Girls trying to wipe the flour out of their eyes. Let us know if you can name this competitor in blue and we will give you a brand new LTKRF New Era Cap!

Volcom’s Totally Crustaceous Tour (TCT) Mulletfish surf series is a classic event in Hossegor, celebrating its 13th edition in Les Culs Nus last weekend. It has changed quite a bit but keeps its roots stoking the kids out. With an European tour of events to qualify directly to the global TCT Champs in California this season, some of the Portuguese, Spanish and Basque surfers made it to Hossegor, bringing an international taste to the comp. Check out the photos for the recap of this good day down the beach, and stay tuned for a complete video highlights at the end of the tour!

Justin Becret finding a corner to help him pass his first Groms round. The future looks bright! Early morning check in Global Champs Juniors division semifinalist Quentin Grenard is one division up this year and couldn’t pass the Round 1 at the Mulletfish, no worries, you've got 3 more stops to qualify! The Squids division is always great to watch, from 6 year old rippers being pushed by their father to 10 year olds like Alfonso Antunes surfing on the rail, drawing perfect lines on the waves like a veteran Noa Dupouy is the local talent in the Squids division, this small air during the finals wasn’t enough to take down Alfonso Noa and Alfonso post Squids finals fair play after a great battle Meanwhile, Juniors were lighting up the second podium with massive hacks such as Erwann Blouin here Halloween on the beach with Mullets and Monsters Joao Moreira from Portugal throwing a bucket of water. He ended up in 2nd place in the Juniors division Here is Lens Arancibia from Biarritz, not sure if he’s claiming or frustrated because of his last turn on this righthander, he took home the trophy in the Juniors division and 100€ cash! Ariane Ochoa claimed the win after a Girls final with no locals. Camilla Kemp is a powerful surfer from Portugal, she finished 3rd in the Girls division. Skullcandy brought DJ Mike Rock to play on the beach in the afternoon, lots of prizes for the kids and organized a great party at Cafe De Paris (not pictured here) The surf kept on getting better during the afternoon with the wind fading and the tide going down. Here is Charly Quivront taking advantage of the fun ramps, going for a bs air reverse. Kids are always frothing around the beach games Jordan Oueslati finished at the 3rd place in the Pro Am finals after a Marathon day. William Aliotti kept on putting massive scores heat after heat in the Pro Am division, here he is flaring during the semis Thomas Delplace was stopped in the Pro Am semis but not without a fight Nelson Cloarec finished runner up in the Pro Am division despite landing a varial in the finals William Aliotti about to land a massive fs air reverse to pass the section of the wave and take home the victory in the Pro Am division, and 400€ in cash!

The Totally Crustaceous Tour made its way to the Garden State for the annual Jellyfish Surf Series at the world famous Manasquan Inlet! We met up with out friends at Inlet Outlet surf shop for the Pre event sign up party. When we pulled into the parking lot we were greeted to the sounds of tons of frothing Jersey groms ready to get their hands on the free pizza and get there names entered into Saturdays event. The night was amazing, the Groms built a makeshift skatepark out of loose wood and skated till there legs were Jello. Mike Gleason signed his recent cover of Eastern Surf Magazine for all in attendance and before you could you say Pork Roll Egg and Cheese the night was over and it was time to rest up for Sundays event! Great turnout at Inlet Outlet for the Pre-Party event!! Thanks guys! Sundays event was one for the books in New Jersey. We had one of our largest turnouts in Jellyfish history and fun 2-4 ft waves. The gremlins stormed the beach like a Bruce Springsteen storms the stage! We got the late beach entries in the books, cleared the peak, and sent the Juniors out to start the day! The day was perfect, we brought out the Leaf Blower, showered some lucky children in flour, and ran around in diapers.... Ohh yeah we also crowned a champion, Pat Schmidt! Volcomgratulations to all the Golden ticket winners, who will be heading to TCT Champs in April and a very special thank you to all who made this event such a special one! #NJALLDAY If you don't recognize these rocks, you've missed one of the best waves in Jersey. Mike Vanaman cutting up a slice of Jersey pie! He's a big fluffy bear, who loves his home and the groms that rip there. Mike Gleason. Jude Clark small seed, big tail slide. Bacon, before joining the pizza. Pat Schmidt and what I'm assuming isn't a "you're my favorite shredda" hand signal. Things got a little windy mid day. Coordinated color schemes look so good when your rail work is this fluid. Spot the biggest grom in this photo.....Dizzy Race, GO! Tommy Inhken taking a break from his judging duties to have a casual surf in a full body blue man suit! It's all fun and games, until Stone Man gets tackled. This kid has a future with Da'Bears!

YEEEEHAWWWW! THE BUSHFISH IS BACK IN TX!
Welcome Volcom... Texas's best Bushfishers have been eagerly waiting your arrival. Texas. What can you say about the Lone Star State other than it is the Heart of America, second to none, and hands down some of the best people on the planet. The annual Bushfish event went down on Saturday the 27th and it was nothing short of a breathtaking 8 second ride. We moseyed on into Benjamins Surf and Skate on Friday afternoon dodging rain clouds and lassoed us up a good ole fashioned preparty with live music from and friendly families chomping at the bit to sign up for the Bushfish contest at Bob Hall Pier. With smiles everywhere a Honky Tonkin Texas time was had by all the friendly faces new and old. Flowing locks normally mean mellow vibes, not in Texas. Mathew Lee laying down a big TX sized hack! Saturday morning brought us exactly what we expected, BBQ grills fired up before dawn, and enough kids and families to fill a Friday night lights football stadium. We had a great start after checking the local radar, getting all set up, and mother nature sent some really fun waves our way to boot! The smell of slow cooking and the yew’s a plenty for the solid surfing all day lead us right up to the finals, where we were met by a big ole Texas squall. The calm before the storm? Not in Texas my friend. That wasn’t going to hold these Texans down. Everyone battened down the hatches, rode it out, and we knocked out the finals in tough but very contestable conditions. After all was said and done we set up the awards presentation in the safety and hospitality of Mikel May’s restaurant up on the pier. The competitors and their families piled in as we crowned our champions to the hoots and hollers of a southern charged packed crowd. Texas, you are something else, and one thing is for sure, we can’t wait until next year when we can 2-step our way back into one of the most fun events of the year! Once the storm passed the wind switched and chunky went tubey, Winston Phillips taking full advantage of the bounty. Mess with Bull, you get the horns. Nathen Marney not exactly the full 8 second ride!  The kids in Texas are second to none,  Bradley Blades showing you can also put it on rail in the LoneStar State. Lunch line? Not in Texas, everyone in there has BBQ rib in hand waiting on a New Era Hat! Remember that aforementioned squall... Shane Wiggens ain't scared. Everything is bigger in Texas...right? Always the favorite, The Squids. Little stature big surfing, with Carl Holm, big mustache. Bradley Blades surfing was hotter than a fox in a forest fire. And to the victor, goes the spoils.
