One of our hottest Spring 2014 styles – the Chem Class Shirt Jacket is the perfect piece to grab on your way out the door. Throw this on with any outfit: jeans and a tee, a dress, or with shorts once the sun goes down.
The final event of the 2013-2014 Pufferfish season finished off with a bang at Makaha on Saturday March 22nd. With some solid swell and good conditions in the forecast we knew by mid week that the event was going to be on. Saturday morning, we pulled up in the dark at the world famous Makaha beach to find perfect 2-4ft rights, looking more like Lower Trestles than somewhere in Hawaii. Needless to say it was packed with Groms ready to surf. We started the first heat at 7:30am sharp knowing it was going to be an all day affair. Before we could even blink it was time for the finals and to give out the awards! Thanks to everyone who made the event such a success, especially Kai Borg, and the Volcom surf team for donating some of their boards for some lucky winners.

Carlos Muñoz took first place at the Alas Prime Event in Ecuardor! His rail to rail and air game swept the rest of his competitors! This was the third stop of the Alas (Latinamerica Surf Asociation) tour. The event is rated as a Prime and had the best surfers from Latinoamerica and Brasil. In the final, Cali defeated the former Latin champ, Francisco Bellorin from Venezuela. Cali ended up comboing Francisco with a total heat score of 16.34! After the win, the boys went straight to Montañitas for the Volcom True To This Premiere… And yeah, it was a big night of celebration with the Volcom crew!!!
Good Job Cali!!!

The Volcom Team set sail and landed in Puerto Rico a couple of weeks ago. We had a large crew, including Balaram Stack, Carlos Munoz, Parker Coffin, Noah Schweizer, Pat Schmidt. Also joining us from El Caribe was Ricardo Delgado, Aron Gieger, Willito Carasco, and Brandon Sanford. We scored some fun waves, warm nights, good coconuts, and also met some great people! We rounded out the trip with the premier of 'True To This' at the Pool Bar in Rincon. Was quite a night of festivities!!! Thank you, Puerto Rico, and thanks to all who came out to see the the movie and celebrate with us!

The Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast just happened and Dusty Payne wasn’t there and that’s weird. Dusty is one of the most talented surfers in the world. A place for him on tour was only destiny. But after a few years of ill-timed injuries and lackluster results on the WCT, Dusty bit the dust. He’s now off the tour — but certainly not off the map. As he talks about in the interview below, this year he’ll be chasing fun instead of chasing 4.5s. But come on now Dusty, 4.5s? We’ve seen that tail toss of yours — and it’s at least worthy of a standalone 7.33. —Brendan Buckely
SURFING MAGAZINE: Are you planning on competing at all this year?
I’ll compete in a few events, but I won’t be taking the WQS too seriously. I’m just going to whatever waves I like, the ones that have went well in the past.
So you’re not trying to get back on tour?
That’s not my focus right now. I didn’t... ((Full Interview on Surfing Magazine's Website!))

After kicking off the year in Aus, our girl Quincy Davis spent some time at at break all to familiar to her, Rincon, Puerto Rico. Taking in some time at home to surf and soaking up the Puerto Rican sunshine. It's here, over the weekend where she took the women's Corona Pro win and a check for $5000 in prize money.
Quincy advanced through rounds one and two with ease. Later surfing against local surfer Idalis Alvarado, Emily Ruppert, and french team rider Maud Le Car in the quarters. Maud would get past Quincy for a quarterfinal win, with Quincy finishing right behind her but they'd meet again in the Finals where Quincy proved today's Champ.
Congrats to both our Volcom girls! Thanks for keeping it exciting.
