Groms Are Back, And This Time They're Punks - Kyuss King VIDEO
What Youth gave us an insane new video of young Volcom shredder Kyuss King, and it's been circulating the surf department here for the past few days. With a retro film aesthetic, an 80's punk song, and a new-age, stylistically-driven surf rat from Australia, we're not sure if this video is 2 weeks old or 20 years old. Lucky for us, Kyuss has recently been starting to gain traction with the surf media so this is just the beginning of banger surf clips and talk of the young grom. What Youth describes Kyuss as "an Ozzie Wright meets Taj Burrow and Gavin Beschen hybrid of mischief and corndogs in neon." You be the judge.

Get to Know Volcom Women's Photographer - Alexandra Valenti
For our Volcom Women's x Lomography photo contest we asked our favorite fashion photographer, Alexandra Valenti, to be a guest judge! For those of you who haven't entered our contest yet, enter here! For those of you who haven't gotten to know miss Alexandra, keep reading to see our exclusive interview with her. VW: Hey Alexandra, thank you for taking the time to answer a few questions! How did you first get into photography? Was it something you always dreamed of doing? AV: It started when a childhood friend of mine, who was about 9 years older than me, gave me a book of Henri Cartier Breton's photographs when I was about 10 or 11 years old. Bresson was known for the 'decisive moment', (the in between moment) and that has had an enormous impact on my own photography and art. I always took photographs, but always thought I would be a cinematographer. But as I got older and started assisting, I realized I could maybe make a living being a photographer. It just took a while ;) VW: What inspires you when taking photos? Do models have a certain influence on your photography? AV: Yes, models are very important. But it's really more about the whole setting. The set, the story, the clothes... It starts with a feeling. I'm actually more inspired by color, shape and pattern first, then it's the person I am photographing. It's probably my design background. VW: What is your favorite fashion era? AV: OH that's a hard one. I would say I am more inspired by much older eras than I am by anything happening currently. It's so far removed from my experience that I can fantasize about what it was like. And plus I just think the clothes were better in say the 30s, 40s and 50s. And in photographs, it just immediately looks so classic and cinematic. VW: What are your favorite film cameras? AV: I have a few favorites. I have a Pentax 645 that I still use on every shoot. And I love my Hasslblad 503. And old polaroid land cameras. And I love the Pentax 67. It's super heavy but the images are so stellar. And the Mamiya RZ 67 is well, the beast that makes everything look incredible. VW: We noticed that a few of your pieces contain your artwork as well. When did you start combining the two together? AV: I started about 6 or 7 years ago I think? It was really born out of frustration of not being able to paint enough and this seemed like a perfect solution to combine the two mediums. VW: In what ways do you try to stand out from other photographers? AV: I don't really think too hard about what other photographers are doing. I love other photographers but I just have to focus on what I'm trying to say and achieve aesthetically. I feel like I'm constantly evolving. I have a long way to go before I will ever feel like my work is up to par. I will look at stuff I shot even last year, and want to throw away my whole portfolio. I just know I can do better and I feel an intense drive to push myself further. VW:  What advice do you give to aspiring photographers out there? AV: Shoot all the time and keep trying to do something different. Stay away from Instagram because it's making everyone's work look the same. I see trends happening, people ripping off other photographers, and no one is thinking for themselves. Not everyone of course. But there is definitely this collective "unconscious" (although I don't know how unconscious it it) that is producing similar work. I tend to not look at Instagram very much these days. I definitely post my work but then I jump off. It's too much. It's hard to not be affected by it. And lastly, I think, just do it because you love it and it makes you happy. Eventually work will come. If you are passionate, people will recognize that it's authentic and original. To check out more of Alex's work, click here. Give her a follow on Instagram.

FINALS DAY Volcom Pipe Pro - RECAP!
Banzai Pipeline, North Shore, Oahu, HAWAII – (Tuesday, February 2, 2016) Kelly Slater (USA) solidified his first win in two years at the Volcom Pipe Pro today after a full day of standing ovation performances that many are calling the absolute best of the winter season. Slater surfed against three of the top Pipe mavericks in the world – Jamie O’Brien (HAW), Bruce Irons (HAW) and Makai McNamara (HAW) in a nerve-shattering Final that saw barrels fire off like cannons and detonate on the notoriously shallow reef. Kelly Slater, 2016 Volcom Pipe Pro Champion! photo: Jack Morrissey The 30-minute Final got started with two low scoring albeit immense waves from O’Brien and Irons, respectively, then saw McNamara answer back with the second highest wave of the heat, an 8.67. The 20-year old took an early lead on his opening wave, with Slater taking a quick second on his first ride, a 7.83. Halfway through the Final, the 11-time World Champ secured the win with a backup score of an 8.73, while the other competitors fought hard for the runner-up position. Makai McNamara. photo: Brian Bielmann O’Brien scored a 4.27 for a long left, finally finding a barrel in the second section of the wave, and backed up the mediocre score with a 5.67 for an inside Backdoor barrel. The combined heat total of 9.94 secured a second place finish for the Pipeline Master. The first perfect ten of the day - and the third of the event - O’Brien routed an ultra deep backside barrel to claim the Electric 10-point ride award for $1,000. Calm and cool, O’Brien was in complete control while navigating a high line, eventually bursting out of the tube after the spit. Marco Giorgi (URY) nabbed one of the highest scores of the morning, a near perfect score of a 9.67 for a tricky Backdoor barrel that threatened to clamp down. Giorgi is the sole surfer hailing from Uruguay in this competition. Marco Giorgi. photo: Jack Morrissey Tom Whittaker (AUS) was the highest placing Australian of the event, surfing in the fourth Quarterfinal against Jamie O'Brien (HAW), Mason Ho (HAW) and fellow countryman Soli Bailey (AUS). Baily, 20, had the opportunity to surf one of his first Pipe events in excellent conditions and was humble about the experience. “This is one of the first events I’ve surfed out here, so that’s a special thing," said Soli. "I think anyone that gets a chance to surf an event out here is super lucky and so fortunate. I’m just so glad that I got through to where I did and got to get so many barrels. It’s such an honor to get to surf this wave at its pretty much ultimate best and get through those heats and compete against some of the world’s best out here." Wiggolly Dantas (BRA) narrowly missed a shot at the Quarterfinals after being taken out by Makai McNamara (HAW) who advanced behind Mason Ho (HAW). The Brazilian is a standout in North Shore waves and has spent the winter honing his talents here at Pipeline. Check out Final's Day Heats On Demand & Photo Gallery!
