Volcom's Pufferfish Surf Series makes its way to the Big Island!

The Pufferfish Surf Series made its way to Banyons on the Big Island for one of the best stops on the Hawaiian VQS tour. There is always a huge turnout at this event and this would be no exception! The Groms poured on to the beach to get their hands on the free grinds and cash that await the winners! The day got going early and the action never stopped and with a little extra time at the end of the day we were able to send some dudes out for an Airshow! Thanks to everyone that made this event possible and we will see ya'll next year!

The Banyons event is a staple on the Big Island and Kids froth every year when is comes around!

It's All BS! - click to find out why...

Every Tuesday until the premiere of "Veeco: A Volcom Filmmaking Documentary" on Aug 26th, take a journey through the Volcom film library as we post a classic Veeco production unearthed from the Volcom vaults. Reserve your seat for the online digital premiere of "Veeco" on Aug. 26th: http://vol.cm/veecofilm BS! is an out of the ordinary, if not extraordinary surf film that documents the serious ripping of Dusty Payne, Mitch Coleborn, Alex Gray, Ozzie Wright, Nate Tyler, and Andrew Doheny, while revealing their individual characters through thoughtful interviews that quickly slip into honest humor. On top of such humor, the film builds into striking notes of provokingly tweaked sarcasm that is in refreshing contrast to current surf film genre trends. iTunes: http://geni.us/3JOU DVD: http://vol.cm/BSonDVD Soundtrack: Need New Body - Beach Everybody - Seeing Isn't Believing (version 1) RAD - FreeM Birds of Avalon - I Never Knew Princess Sweepstakes - Wind Up Willis Czar Rose - Faraway No. 23 Brain Squeegee - Nihilistic Fool Mofi - What Does it Mean Everybody - Seeing Isn't Believing (version 2) Chant Oh's - Again; Filling The Nothing With Something
