The Totally Crustaceous Tour Advances 10 More Competitors to Lowers at The Seacow in Jax Beach, Florida!
Corey Howell dissecting a left pier bowl. There really could not have been a better timed Volcom Totally Crustaceous Tour Seacow Surf Series event in Jacksonville Beach, FL. The @Volcom_East crew had us dialed in with sweet rooms @palmsretro and a really cool spot @mellowjax for the pre-event signup party. Not to mention a premier of the new Volcom surf film Psychic Migrations at a rad venue in downtown Jacksonville, the Sunray Theater. Oh yea and there was a hurricane right off the coast so the waves were just insane, I mean so good. RipTickleHands, Travelocity Gnome, Jailbeard Dane. First was the movie premier and everyone packed into this amazing old theater in downtown Jacksonville with riders Mike Gleason, Balaram Stack, Parker Coffin, and Noah Schweizer. That was a super fun night and the movie is really good so the night was filled with hoot, hollers, and yewwww’s! Jake McGuire, lip slide heater. Stone man run-ith. Saturday morning everyone was fired up to get to the beach and get set up. There was no question the waves were good so everyone was moving to get set up. We got underway and right into the Juniors division, which I’m pretty sure didn’t have one heat that wasn’t stacked. These kids were ripping all day and Micah Cantor won a very contested division in the final. The Squids and the Groms divisions were much the same story as the Juniors in that every heat was full of great surfing and great waves to showcase on. Blake Spier snagged the win in the Groms and Sterling Makish got the win in everyone’s favorite Squids division. The Girls division was insane and I am pretty certain it was one of the most talented I’ve seen on tour yet, these Girls were absolutely ripping all day and Storm Pittman ended with a win her final heat. Last but not least was the Pro-Ams and what these kids can do in that type of surf was impressive to watch. Corey Howell took the win the last heat of the day, clinching his spot at Lower Trestles with all the other 1st and 2nd place Seacow finishers . James Lacour locked and loaded through the Fisherman's Gauntlet. Thank you Jacksonville, Florida for all the good times and letting us come to your town.

Volcom x B4BC Collection - Designer || Artist Interview with Carolyn Campos & Vanessa Stark
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Volcom has partnered up with Boarding for Breast Cancer to bring awareness and support once again. This year we’ve teamed up with artist, Vanessa Stark, to create the Act Insulated Jacket where we will donate a portion of the proceeds to the Boarding for Breast Cancer Foundation. Shop the Act Insulated Jacket   Our very own Volcom Snow designer, Carolyn Campos and Vanessa Stark happen to be great friends who inspire one another. We got a chance to catch up with both of them and chat about how it was to work with one another on this years B4BC design!   Carolyn Campos How was it designing the Act Insulated Jacket with your friend and artist, Vanessa Stark? CC: I have always looked up to Vanessa, she is an avid snowboarder, mountain biker and all around outdoor adventure enthusiast as well as an incredible artist! So it was natural working with her. Her art and visions are so inspiring to me and she fit the vibe of the line I was creating perfectly. There is so much color and textures used with in the owl. And if you look into its eyes, it is visioning snow peaked mountain tops! How long have you been designing for Volcom Snow?  CC: I am coming up on 12 years!! Time sure does fly when you are having fun! Designing for Volcom was my dream job as a young outerwear designer and snowboarder. I still pinch myself that this dream came true, so naturally too. I was sitting at my desk, at my previous job, and my phone rang… And it was Volcom with the job proposal. Here I am and the rest is history! Describe to us your creative process. How do you get in the mind set of designing? CC: It’s constant really. I can’t just go to the ski hill and go snowboarding. I am constantly observing and creating in my mind. If you are on the chairlift or gondola with me you can guarantee I have completely picked over every detail of your outerwear by the time the ride is finished!!  In a way its taken some of the feeling of escape being on the mountain which is why I have been getting more backcountry riding in the past few years. Riding in almost complete solitude. I also shop and travel the world. Being inspired from many many different angles. I also love interior design, furniture, buildings, textile design… It goes on.  My mind has always been creative. When I need a break from designing, I knit or cook or sew… Just other forms of creating. I can’t stop really. Who are some of your design heroes?    CC: Oh wow, how do I even pin point them. A couple oldies like Jean Muir and Arne Jacobsen I always find inspiring. In design school I did projects on Betsey Johnson and Todd Oldham so I always like following their colorful craziness. I love Banksy’s element of suburban rebellion. Emily Hoy’s graphic design I keep close to my heart. Alexander Wang, McQueen, Chanel, Christopher Kane… The list goes way on and on!! When did you first hear of B4BC? How long has Volcom Snow been partnered with them? CC:  Volcoms first collaboration with B4BC was in the 2006/07 snow line. We started with a fleece piece. It was the following year that we really made an impact with Jamie Lynn’s “Blue Girl” torso graphic on an outerwear jacket, fleece and tee! We really started to gain awareness with B4BC that season!! It is such an amazing thing B4BC is doing for young women. What are you ‘True To’? CC: I aim to be ‘True’ to everything in life. I like real people. Vanessa Stark What inspired you to first pick up a paint brush? When did you start painting? VS:  All kids paint... I just never stopped. Visual arts has been a big part of my life from the beginning. It was something that was really natural for me. Art has always been a part of who I am. What does a "day in the office" look like to you? VS:  Being self-employed has its pro's and con's. Some days are awesome and others can be intense. Having the flexibility of making your own hours has its advantages, especially when there is pow to shred! There are other days when deadlines are looming and I can't feel my legs because I've been painting non-stop for days on end. Finding balance is key to a perfect "day in the office". How do you stay inspired? What inspires you the most? VS:  I'm inspired by the magic of this life and world. I've recently been intrigued by the rhythms of nature and subconscious connection between all things. Living the life i live, having adventures in the mountains, surrounded by nature and friends gives me an endless amount of inspiration. I have pages and pages of notes and a stack of doodled-up sketchbooks full of ideas I haven't had a chance to release to the world just yet. Does snowboarding have a big effect on your life? VS: Huge! Snowboarding saved my life and has shaped virtually everything about my life since. Snowboarding has been my true passion since I first tried it in 1991. My art style is a reflection of my lifestyle which has been a result of my love of snowboarding. How was it designing the Act Insulated Snow Jacket with Carolyn? VS: Carolyn is an amazing artist and designer. She had the vision for the jacket and approached me for the artwork. The cut and color/artwork combo on the jacket are so sick! I was super stoked to play a part in this jacket especially with proceeds going to B4BC. I wore the jacket last year and was pretty blown away by the positive response the jacket got. What are you true to? VS: I'll always be true to snowboarding, family, friends, being kind with an open mind, enjoying life's moments and its crazy ride. And of course I'm true to art because life is art.

Prior to the contest we cruised through with Pedro Barros, Daan van der Linden, Omar Hassan, CJ Collins and Caswell Berry. Stop #9 of Volcom’s Wild In The Parks series dodged rainy conditions by relocating to Hazard County Skatepark in McDonough, GA on Saturday September 26, 2015. Weather forecasts called for a swirling rain system around the Atlanta area throughout the weekend. Hazard County Skatepark is a top-notch contest event location that hosts a variety of high quality events and was ready for one more. We put the word out that the contest venue had changed and the southern skate scene turned up in large numbers. Competitors were ripping from the time the doors opened to the last second of finals. The skating level was insanely high and definitely one of the heaviest events of the entire 2015 qualifying series.

Shane Farber took home 1st in the 15-21 Division utilizing the launch ramp to bump with this backside 360 nosegrab. A lot of heavy tricks were going down on the bank to wall over the quarter pipe. 2nd place winner Christian Henry pulling a back lip across it with ease. Andrey Tarasov pulled out this gap over to lipslide on the hubba in prelims. In the end he took home 7th in 15-21 Division. Henry Gartland placed 3rd in the Open/Am Division going big in zone 2 with a nosegrind on the bank to wall over the quarterpipe. No stranger to the contest circuit, Jamie Foy cruised up from Florida with a bunch of homies. This frontside crooked grind 180 helped him take 2nd in the Open/AM Division. Open/Am Division 1st place winner Josh Douglas had no shortage of tricks in each zone. This back smith across and down was one of the many he put down on the pyramid. Caswell's Choice and ATL local Zeke Logan throwing down a nollie front crook on the hubba.
