Turning Recycled Bottles into Volcom Boardshorts!
Volcom Mod-Tech Boardshorts, a staple in the Volcom line and refined over the years through rugged team-rider testing and critique, is proudly developed in a partnership with Repreve, a recycled fiber that is made from recycled materials including used plastic bottles. An estimated 5 plastic bottles are used when producing a pair of Volcom Mod-Tech boardshorts. Recycled polyester uses nearly half the energy that virgin polyester does and helps reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions during manufacturing by about 45%. This offsets the need to use new resources such as petroleum, while emitting fewer greenhouse gases. Repreve recycled fiber In the past year, much of our focus has been on building our New Future roadmap, a guide that addresses our impacts, the forces behind those impacts, and the means to aggressively address what we believe is the foundation of Volcom's environmental sustainability commitment. Mod-Tech boardshorts are made for the believers of tomorrow. The eager optimists pushing for a change. And that change is included in these boardshorts showcased with the Repreve recycled fiber.

Growing In The Right Direction - Ron Jon's Beach 'N Boards Fest!
Cocoa Beach, Florida was once again the host to the 2016 Beach ‘N Board Fest from March 11- 13. The Beach was alive with many different events and attractions surrounding the Vans x Ron Jon WSL 1,000 and WSL JR Pro with Volcom East Coast rippers Balaram Stack & Noah Schweizer surfing in the WSL 1,000. Just like last year, Volcom teamed up with Keep Brevard Beautiful (KBB) – a local non-profit organization – to be the official sustainability sponsors of the event. Our efforts included providing and coordinating proper waste management, a volunteer-led planting of sea oats, as well as educational tutorials led by our partners at Repreve. This give back sustainability campaign incorporated educational and physical acts to ensure that surfers and beach goers will have a viable and healthy beach to enjoy for years to come. Thank you to everyone who came out to support this great cause and for all the fun! Volcom surf team athletes Balaram Stack and Noah Schweizer were on hand and in the trenches helping right alongside event spectators and volunteers to plant the much-needed sea oats. Balaram Stack Noah Schweizer Happy campers! Teaching the young! Supergrom learning the ropes. Debbie Harvey, Ron Jon Surf Shop Sea oats are an essential part of the eco-system, as they provide a natural barrier to protect from beach erosion.  On both Saturday and Sunday eager volunteers planted over 200 sea oat sprouts.  Combined with our efforts from last year the campaign has successfully nourished a 50-yard section of dune line directly behind the event. It was great to have Repreve in attendance as well, telling the story of the sustainability efforts we’re making with one of our newest lines of boardshorts.  Using their onsite mobile unit, Repreve walked interested patrons through the processes the company uses to transform recycled bottles into a fiber that is eventually turned into fabric for Volcom’s Mod-Tech Boardshorts. Thank you to Crystal Colbert from Repreve for all the support! 2016 Volcom Boardshorts on display.  Balaram Stack throwin' it up in the Ron Jon Vans Pro.

Day 1 Volcom Pipe Pro - RECAP
Check out Day 1 Heats On Demand & Photo Gallery! Banzai Pipeline, North Shore, Oahu, HAWAII – (Friday, January 29, 2016) - The morning fired out continuous barrels as Round 1 of the Volcom Pipe Pro got underway in clean 8-10 foot surf and light offshore easterly winds. The second World Surf League (WSL) Hawaii Qualifying Series (QS) event of the season, the Volcom Pipe Pro offers a $100,000 prize purse, up to 3,000 regional ratings points, and a slot into the Pipe Invitational with the potential of advancing into the Pipe Masters, the final stop of the WSL Championship Tour. One of the youngest competitors of the event, Maui’s Imaikalani deVault, 18, advanced behind North Shore mainstay Kai Mana Henry, 37, with a combined heat total of a 6.90. Imai deVault “It’s pretty nerve wracking but it’s so cool,” deVault said about surfing against top Pipeline competitors. “I’ve been watching Kai Mana (Henry) surf out here since I was like five years old so to surf a heat with him is just like, dream come true for sure.” The teen is working to qualify into the QS6,000 events at the end of the year and talked about the benefit of competing here in the islands. “Being from Hawaii is definitely an advantage because you can get into events like this or the Triple Crown… just to get practice out here when other people can’t, it’s just a huge opportunity to be able to be in this contest and I’m super happy.” Koa Smith (HAW), 21, was a standout competitor of the event so far, wowing the beach crowd with back-to-back nines - a 9.0 and a 9.67 - the two highest wave scores of the day. Smith stormed his heat against Kiron Jabour (HAW), Noa Mizuno (HAW) and Kaito Ohashi (JPN) and used prime positioning to his advantage. Koa Rothman “I saw that set coming and I got myself into position,” said Smith. “Kiron paddled for that first wave so it kind of put me more into position, and he’s like, ‘Oh are you going,’ and I was paddling up the face like, ‘Oh I don’t know,’ and then I was just perfectly in the right spot. From there I just relaxed through it and had a couple sketchy chandeliers but it let me out and as soon as I got back out the next wave came. And I was just like ‘okay that was fun.’” The wildcards of the event included Volcom team riders Gavin Beschen (HAW) and Balaram Stack (USA), who both got a spot in Round 3, while North Shore’s Koa Rothman (HAW), 22, earned his berth into the Round of 96 by besting the 6-man Volcom Last Chance Qualifier (VLCQ) heat against Tom Dosland, Kawai Lindo, JD Irons, Dave Wassel and Derek Ho. The highest score of the heat – an 8.33 – saw Rothman win the third wildcard slot into the competition. “I’m pretty stoked, I didn’t have enough points to get into the event any other way, so Volcom gave me a shot and it ended up working out really well,” said Rothman. “I think it was probably some of the best Pipe surfers in the world, but I ended up pulling through.” Myles Padaca, who placed second at the Sunset Pro last Sunday, advanced through his heat in first place ahead of Allen Schuyler, Travis Beckmann and Ezra Sitt. The 44-year-old will surf again once the competition resumes. Bruce Irons advanced to Round 3 after a nail biting heat with Torrey Meister (HAW), Makuakai Rothman (HAW) and Seth Moniz (HAW). Rothman and Moniz had the lead for the majority of the 25-minute heat until Meister and Irons split a peak in the last ten seconds and scored a 5.27 and 7.17 respectively, which bumped them up to first and second place to advance. Bruce Irons When the contest resumes we will see more action-packed heats and high-profiled names compete such as Kelly Slater, John John Florence and Jamie O'Brien, who are all Pipe specialists. Official forecaster, Surfline.com, predicts an easing NW swell over the weekend with head high waves and moderate easterly trade winds. Contest organizers will convene tomorrow morning at 7:30am HST to make a decision on whether the contest will resume at 8am. Results Shown in order of 1st through 4th.
