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!

Mr. Plant North America Premier Tour

On Friday October 17th, Volcom kicked off the North American leg of the Mr. Plant Premier Tour. Pat Moore and Jake Price were gearing up for a tour consisting of 8 premiers, 8 cities in 9 days and what better city to kick of the tour than Volcom's  own back yard, Newport Beach, CA. The infamous Lido Live Theater would be the setting for the kick off of the North America Mr Plant tour.  Snowboard industry members and fans a like made their way to the infamous Lido Live Theater in downtown Newport. The 500 seat theater was filled to the brim with a rowdy crew of shred heads. Out from the Volcom Snowboard team to check the film was Pat Moore, Curtis Ciszek, Seth Huot, Bryan Iguchi, Scott Blum, Alex Lopez and Elena Hight. Through out the duration of the film, the theater about blew a screw from the hoots and screams of a hyped crowd, and at the end of the night you couldn't find one person in the theater that didn't have snow on the brain! And this was just the Beginning... The 500 seat theater was jam packed!    Wooly introduced the crowd to the upcoming nights festivities.  Pat and Jake brought up the team for a final thanks before rolling the film.   Free stuff! The Mission Theater in Portland, OR would host the 2nd stop of the Mr. Plant North America Tour. Open bar dude! Pat's ending part brought the crowd to their feet. Pat and Jake brought the party down the street to Slabtown for some cold PBRs and old school Punk. Bi-Marks tearing down the doors. See you in the morning Vancouver! Jake spent his birthday at the Vancouver premier stop, here you see Pat leading all of the Bimini's Public House in singing Jake Happy Birthday. Bimini's Public House had no shortage of TVs, and Mr.Plant was playing on everyone of them. See, told you... [caption id="attachment_11720" align="aligncenter" width="640"] The moment the credits rolled, Black Wizard got straight to melting faces. Perfect way to end a great show in Vancouver! The Uptown Theater in Seattle was ready for the rowdy Mr. Plant crew.[/caption] Mr. Plant stickers were a hot commodity. Northwest Sales Rep Clint Graham welcomes his fellow Seattle citizens to the show. Roll the film Pat! This kid snuck out of his crib to see the movie! The boys brought the after party to Spitfire, while Jamie Lynn and Wes Makepeace brought the tunes.Those who joined were amping, especially Pat Moore. Jamie and Wes go by Tittyfish. You'll be hard pressed to find a more legendary band in the snowboard scene. Thanks for the jams guys, and goodnight Seattle!   Asymbol Gallery had a special Mr. Plant photo gallery waiting for Pat and Jake once they got into Jackson Hole.   The gallery featured a collection of Vernon Deck's photos from the filming of Mr. Plant.   Travis Rice was syched to show they guys what he had prepared for them.   Pat gave Bryan Iguchi a print out of the photo collection as a gift for all he did for the film.   Snowboard film making genius and director of Mr. Plant, Jake Price, caught in the act.   The Center of the Arts was up and running for the Jackson, WY premier stop.   Hand over the Mr. Plant goodies!   Hometown hero, Bryan Iguchi thanks Pat, Jake and his local crowd for joining for the night's excitement.   Jackson Hole was very pleased!   A rowdy mob waited out front of the Tower Theater in Salt Lake City.   In the mob was a laundry list of snowboard heavy weights, these two included. JP Walker and Jeremy Jones waiting for the doors to open.     Director Jake Price with the man with the opening part, Jake Welch. Bust the doors down and get a good seat!   Pat was caught off gaurd by all the excited shred heads!   The theater always goes nuts when JLA comes on screen.   Pure pandemonium! SLC rocked the house down. Definitely the loudest crowd on tour yet!     Next stop, Summit Music Hall, Denver, CO. As fans made their way over to the theater from the Bronco's game, Muscle Beach welcomed them with heavy riffs and beer spray.   Satellite Boardshop out of Boulder announced the winners of the Crew Battle video contest they put on. Volcom's very own Dylan Alito and friends took the win! ZSC!!   By the time the movie played, the theater was shoulder to shoulder.   Elena seamed to find enough room for a slash...   The Denver snowboard scene was running high after a stiff Pat Moore/Metallica cocktail. Perfect time to a product toss!   To cap off Pat's stay in Denver, Taun Taun lulled him to sleep with throttling drums and wailing guitar solos. Just how Pat likes it.   For the last and final stop of the Mr. Plant North American Premier Tour, Montreal!   Cabaret Underworld would host the finally send off, and it did not disappoint.   Pat even got in the Montreal spirit! Him and Jake thank the crowd for sending them home with a proper hangover.   Stoney Baloney   The boys were sad to be done with the North American leg of the Mr.Plant premier tour, but then again, what did they have to complain about when the next stop is Asia?! Later boys, and good luck... After a whorl wind tour of 8 premiers, 8 cities in 9 days, Pat and Jake were exhausted, but running high on North American stoke! Now, it is off to Asia to hype of South Korea and Japan. Mr. Plant out!
