    Lady Grouplove Events

    Last weekend was full of excitement as we held two major events with Tilly's for our Lady Grouplove Collection! The first event was held at the Towne Center in Long Beach, CA on Saturday. Fans were standing in line since 2AM anxiously waiting to meet Grouplove and get their albums and t-shirts signed! The band members wore pieces from the Lady Grouplove Collection in support of the line & singer Hannah Hooper!  Kaitlin Meeder, a truly dedicated fan, was chosen to perform with the band and was moved to tears as she was living her dream!   At our second event, die hard fans fled to Irvine Spectrum in support of Volcom Womens & Grouplove to see the band perform as well as receive pieces from the line & signed albums! Once again, the band members wore pieces from the Lady Grouplove Collection and looked amazing doing so! Kaitlin made it back on the stage for the second event with more confidence than ever! The crowd went wild in support of their fellow fan. Photos by Chris Martinez. Featured items… Lady Grouplove Tee Lady Grouplove Denim Jacket Lady Grouplove Pants

    2015 Volcom TCT Global Champs @ Lower Trestles - FINAL DAY Recap!

    What a great day it was for the final day of the 2015 Totally Crustaceous Tour Global Champs down at Lower Trestles! Once again, we saw perfect 10-point rides, impressive surfing from all divisions across the board, and excellent wave and weather conditions. Photo: Vandyke The Pro-am division kicked things off with their Quarterfinal heats. Charly Quivront, Yago Dora, and Miguel Tudela all finished in the top spots securing their place in the Semifinals. Seth Moniz and Griffin Colapinto were also able to grab two mid-range scores to secure their Semifinal slots.

Tai was stoked for the grom! Photo: Tom Carey Girls Semifinals were stacked with an almost all United States draw. Throughout the event, Alyssa Spencer has been on fire and she proved once again why she deserved to be here, dominating her heat for Semi #1 while another in-form surfer, Caroline Marks grabbed her two high heat scores and prepared for the final. Photo: Knight Photo: Knight Photo: Knight Photo: KnightPhoto: Knight The Girls final included Alyssa Spencer (US), Camilla Kemp (PRT), Caroline Marks (US), and Kahanu Delovio (US). Right from the start, we knew it was going to be a close final with all Girls scoring great waves, but it was Caroline Marks who continued to show us what the level of Girls surfing has become, impressing the judges to total a heat score of 17.34 for the win. Photo: Knight Photo: Tom Carey Photo: Tom Carey Photo: Tom Carey The Pro-am Semifinals saw excellent heat scores with 16 & 17-point heat totals by Miguel Tudela, Griffin Colapinto and Yago Dora. The finals were then set with Griffin Colapinto (US), Miguel Tudela (PER), Yago Dora (BRA), and Noah Schweizer (US). Photo: Knight Photo: Tom CareyPhoto: Knight Photo: Knight The Grom final was a nail-biting finish! A favorite going into the final was Nick Marshall, who between he and his brother (Jake Marshall), have been on fire the entire event. Brazil's Mateus Herdy was a definite force and held the first position, pushing Nick Marshall, Kade Matson, and Robert Grillho III to find some gems. It came down to the last few seconds when Nick grabbed a quick left with a solid air reverse, but came up just short, leaving Mateus to be crowned the 2015 Volcom TCT Global Champs Groms winner! Photo: Tom CareyPhoto: Knight Photo: Knight Photo: Tom Carey  Photo: Tom Carey  Photo: Tom Carey The Squids final was electric with Jackson Bunch (HI) grabbing an early lead with two high heat scores and some solid confidence. Brayden Burch (US), Afonso Antunes (PRT), and Dane Matson (US) had close heat totals all between 10 and 11 points. Jackson Bunch held his ground and topped the other three competitors and was named the 2015 Volcom TCT Global Champs Squids Champion! Photo: Knight Photo: Knight Photo: Knight Photo: Knight Photo: Knight Photo: Knight Photo: Knight Photo: KnightPhoto: Tom Carey The Groms Semifinals had standout performances by Mateus Herdy and Kade Matson, while the Juniors continued to battle it out with another top performing heat by Jake Marshall with a near-perfect score of a 19.50. Photo: Knight Photo: KnightPhoto: Tom CareyPhoto: Knight Photo: Knight Photo: Tom Carey Junior finals saw Jake Marshall (US), Wil Reid (US), Harley-Ross Webster (AUS), and Nolan Rapoza (US). Three Americans and one lone Aussie held nothing back out in the Lowers lineup as they traded off wave-after-wave, eager to get a piece of that $30,000 prize. In the end, it was Nolan Rapoza who bagged an impressive heat total to be crowned the 2015 TCT Juniors Global Champ! Photo: Knight Photo: Tom Carey Photo: Sustainable Nate Photo: Tom Carey Photo: Tom Carey Photo: Tom Carey Photo: Tom Carey The Pro-am final saw Miguel Tudela (PER), Noah Schweizer (US), Yago Dora (BRA), and Griffin Colapinto (US). While the wave conditions were improving, the sun was out, the beach was packed, and the 20 & Under men were ready for action! A stacked final indeed, and we were not disappointed. Yago excited the crowd grabbing 7s and 8s back-to-back towards the end of the heat, doing air reverse after air reverse. But Miguel battled back by getting one of the best waves of the final during the last few seconds of the heat and was awarded a 9.6 to take the win, edging out Yago by just a tenth of a point!

2015 Volcom TCT Global Champs @ Lower Trestles - Day 1 Recap!
That's a wrap for Day 1 of the 2015 Volcom Totally Crustaceous Tour Global Champs at Lower Trestles! As the sun began to rise in the early morning, the crew was down at the beach putting the finishing touches on the event site and was pleased to see the swell fill in just in time as the competitors free-surfed directly in front of the contest to warm up before their heats. The spectators began to fill the beach and everyone was setting up camp down at Lowers to prepare for the two-day battle from some of the hottest 20 & Under surfers from around the globe. The contest started at 8am sharp and right off the bat we saw the kids laying down huge turns and solid finishes, giving the judges some tough early morning heat decisions. We saw high performance surfing from all divisions with Nick Marshall and Caleb Crozier in the Grom division dropping perfect 10s to bring the beach to their feet.

Jake Marshall, John Mel, Nolan Rapoza, Kei Kobayashi, among others, all totaled high heat scores for the day in the Junior division and we look forward to seeing what they can bring tomorrow for the final day of competition!

The Girls division also made a statement today in their Quarterfinal heats with some solid surfing and nail-biting finishes. Alyssa Spencer was on a tear, while Caroline Marks, Kahanu Delovio, Kirra Pinkerton, and Shelby Detmers all grabbed two great heat scores to get them through to the Semifinals. Photo: Kenny Morris Photo: Tom Carey The Grom division surprised everyone in their Round 2 heats with the kids dropping some huge scores! The first heat of the Grom division saw a stellar performance by Caleb Crozier dropping a perfect 10 and rounding out his heat with a 19-point total, leaving second place finisher, Ryder Alves, five points behind with a 14.06. We saw another 10-point ride by Nick Marshall who also joined the 19-point heat total club with a near-perfect heat of a 19.73. Other standouts included Mateus Herdy, Lucas Vicente, Cole Houshmand, Jett Schilling, and Kade Matson.

On June 22 and 23, the final two days of the 15th annual event will culminate at the world-class wave, notoriously consistent in the summer months, young up-and-coming surfers from around the world will get the opportunity of a lifetime: to surf an empty and coveted line up while chasing $25,000 in cash and prizes. "At Volcom we believe it is important to have our major surfing events in world-class waves and we are thrilled to host the 2015 TCT Global Championships at Lower Trestles," said Brad Dougherty, Vice President of Volcom Surf. "This wave has a deep-rooted history of memorable surfing events and we are excited for the youth of the TCT to converge at one of the most rippable waves on earth for a shot at the Volcom 2015 TCT Global Championship title." Homegrown out of Volcom's backyard at Newport Beach’s 54th Street break, the Volcom TCT began as a fun, free and sometimes raucous event for the kids dating back to the mid-90s. While staying true to the character of TCT and continuing to Let the Kids Ride Free, the past two decades have seen this event grow organically into a full-scale international tour, giving young surfers of all ages and abilities an opportunity to get their feet wet in competitive surfing. This season, 250 surfers have qualified for the Volcom TCT Global Championships through regional tour stops, and international qualifiers including Brazil, Australia, Latin America, Japan, New Zealand, Europe, USA, Indonesia, South Africa, and Puerto Rico. Some of the best surfers in the world today, including current World Champion Gabriel Medina and World Tour surfers Nat Young, Kolohe Andino, Josh Kerr and Dusty Payne have competed on the Volcom TCT throughout their youth, and this season the event will display a new crop of up-and-comers climbing the ranks into their young professional careers. In addition to providing a major platform to showcase this exciting crew of young talent, moving the event forward into June now aligns it with two other prestigious amateur championships: the Surfing America USA Championships and the National Scholastic Surfing Association (NSSA) National Championships. These three back-to-back contests give the possibility for qualified competitors in all three championships, a chance to win a trifecta title. To top it off, the Volcom TCT Championship event at Trestles gives Volcom the incredible opportunity to partner with California State Parks on sustainability initiatives they stand behind, along with their philosophy to efficiently preserve and protect California’s natural resources.

A Mural Painting in Barcelona w/ Volcom Artist Gemma O'Brien
Volcom Artist Gemma O’Brien (@mrseaves101) is a master of hand lettering, typography and large scale murals. Since being an artist for Volcom, she has created two incredible one-of-a-kind murals. The first one on her home turf in Sydney where she painted a huge True To This piece, and secondly in California at Volcom Headquarters' creative space: The Art Loft.  Volcom Art Loft @ Headquarters Sydney Having been on a Europe tour for the last few weeks speaking at design conferences and festivals, Gemma finished up her trip in Barcelona where she painted a large mural in the Volcom Store. We thought we would follow her around and see her process from concept to finished product. As it turns out, a sim card and Google Maps panned out to be a girl's best friend while trawling the streets of Barcelona for art supplies! Gemma found a great store that had everything she needed, so a quick trip there for acrylic black paint, mixing medium, paint pens, pencils, and a fist-full of varied-sized brushes has the mural kit all sorted out. After Gemma got all her equipment, she headed to the Volcom store to check out the wall space, measure it up and work out the dimensions. After several photos and ideas running through the artist's mind, she headed back to her studio to start on some preliminary sketches and concepts that suited the space. The absolute mobility of Gemma and her work is an impressive feat. The makeshift hotel studio she had set up was comparable to a young college girl's dorm room to say the least. The creative concept being developed on a tiny hotel desk, hunched over and cramped, to then be executed on a 23-foot-wide wall completely stretched out comes full circle from concept to reality. That's an artist. That is Gemma O'Brien. Gemma spent the night roughly mind-mapping her piece. Lots of thumbnails and sketches with a quick tapas break around 11pm. Artists don't sleep, and well, it's Spain! Home of near-midnight dining - a welcomed schedule for Gemma who usually prefers to work through the night. With her final piece in mind and creative confidence stirring, Gemma hit the Volcom Store in Barcelona around 7pm to get started. Like any artist, ideas are constantly flowing and getting a piece finalized has many different considerations as the artwork metamorphosis a few times throughout the process with a new idea that pops up, the countdown clock rearing its head, and other variables come into play. But Gemma is no stranger at this game and surely doesn't bite off more than she can chew as the mural was painted live at the event. The artwork was drawn in layered stages, scanned into Photoshop, arranged and un-arranged, reprinted, redrawn – you name it. This is the most consuming part of the process for some. The design needs to be perfect and Gemma likes to push the idea until she is completely happy it suits the space, the brief, the vibe of the event, and challenges her as well as keeping the art fresh to the audience. She made it look easy, but it was a laborious day in a squishy hotel room at a tiny desk drinking weird coffee which accompanied the process. It must be noted, the lady worked hard as hell the entire time. Arriving at the Volcom Barcelona store, the wall looked large and daunting after working on the small-scale version. The helpful staff moved all of the clothes off the racks and Gemma got to work scaling the artwork with her projector. This bit was fiddly. The wall was an uneven space with racking and shelves which needed to be attended to. A major concern, especially to those of us who are rattled with perfection, was that the artwork needed to look centred on the wall. After some questioning and measurements, the projection was in place and Gemma went about marking reference points. A few areas needed to be completely free-styled as there were poles and other objects in the way which obscured the projection. "All in good fun," said Gemma with a smile. The mural needed to be almost finished by the time guests were due to arrive at 7pm for the night's event, while the remainder was to be painted live in front of the party before the band played. After weighing in on timing, Gemma decided to paint all of the highest points of the artwork as balancing on a ladder in a crowd of party people would be stressful to say the least! She also went over any parts that were not completely opaque or have dried a bit shakey. Perfecting her work as she went. The party got cranking around 8pm. Mini burgers were scoffed, beers steadily swilled, and eyes were glued to Gemma’s final moments of painting. It's really the coolest thing to see a piece of artwork like this finished live in front of a party crew. The vibe was truly bubbling when Gemma put the finishing touches on the last brush stroke. Gemma O'Brien's finished piece. A legendary night indeed! The who’s-who of Barcelona’s cool set, industry folks and media zombies alike all enjoyed a night of live painting and live music. All helping to celebrate a truly Volcom moment in Barcelona. True To This, always. Thank you to Gemma O'Brien for staying true to the Stone and cranking out such an epic piece, and Lamono Magazine for hosting our event. Until next time!
