Volcom to Puerto Rico!
What do you get when you mix Volcom and Puerto Rico? The answer should be Rum Punch.. But the real answer is a radical surf trip! The Volcom team went on spring break a little early this year and spent a week down in PR. Mother nature was on our side and she showed us a good time. Here's a taste of the action… Club Destroy -- Mauro Diaz, Pat Schmidt, Ricardo Delgado, Miguel Tudela, Balaram Stack & Noah Schweizer… Pretty heavy crew! Balaram is no stranger to PR. He's always flying down... Yeah, they like long walks on the beach and late nights out on the town. This is Mauro Diaz, our newest addition to the Volcom Family! He's a great human & an awesome surfer. We are more than stoked to have him on the team. This was our first time hangin out with Mauro and we instantly became brothers. He's a classic human in and out of the water. The man, the myth, the legend, Ricardo "Slims" Delgado. This kid is a hard worker. Thanks for taking care of us and showing us around, buddy! Miguel flew over from Peru to hang out for the week. Well, he wasn't really "hangin out," he took home first place in the Volcom TCT Catfish and punted some of the biggest airs! This was Miguel's second time to PR. We can guarantee he'll be back. Miguel's first wave of the trip… yep!  Noah is a sneaky little guy… Don't let his tricks fool yah! Mr. Pat Schmidt flexing as Mauro mimics. We found this sneaky little wedge on our fist day. Pat gave it a Rum Punch! Tinder... Pat speed blur day and night. Balaram sun setting.   The dudes hard at work? (Mullet & Ruddy Photo) Yeahhh, this is Mullet… Our creepy friend… oh, and filmer. These are Coconuts, probably the tastiest and most dangerous drink in all the land. Ruddy, Dane and Billy Hume can vouch.  Happy Birthday, RJ.

Totally Crustaceous Tour swings through Ventura for the annual Butterfish Surf Series!
Ventura is a cool little surf town with an assortment of fun waves, especially the Pipes/C-Street area with its little right hand point.  The surf scene and the skate scene in that area is very closely tied together which is easily scene as soon as we roll up to our Pre-event signup party at Revolution Surf Co. just outside of downtown Ventura in Camarillo.  The Groms all came by with their families and friends to play some games, eat some free grub, skate the afternoon away, and get all signed up for Volcom TCT Butterfish Surf Series on Saturday. Early morning contest setup with a nice little peak out the back. We have been super lucky as of late with our last few events having more than fun surf, literally as good as we could score some of these spots for the Groms to compete.  Ventura’s Pipes break proved nothing sort of sticking to protocol. We pulled in Saturday morning bright and early to get set up, and right into firing point break style waves. Everyone was frothing and the staff couldn’t wait to get up and running. Bryce Marino has a bottom turn top turn combo that is tough to beat. The crew over at Penny Skateboards kept the Groms busy all day between heats. The fog crept in on us mid morning, which was nice due to the unseasonably warm weather we have been having, and it did nothing to cool down the surfing as all the divisions were prepared and ripping all day. The Juniors , Pros, and Groms got first crack at the clean lined up conditions, and took full advantage. The Groms these days are really figuring out the whole style vs. trick count scenario. Hacks for days, little mini Sunny Garcia man turn. As we moved through the day the Girls and Squids got a crack at the point and made good use of their chance also surfing at a high level all the way into the Repos, Semis, and getting the Finals set. Right on que the sun burned away that marine layer making for a picture perfect start to the finals, and adding a colorful back drop to some very impressive surfing by all divisions and competitors. The groms love this, its like a skate deck on little mini trampolines. SYCK TRYX always keeping the Groms pumped Hows this fins free rotater....textbook. Johnny Gunns checking in with Kurt Harper on that last heat. The kids were laying down some impressive turns all day, this is no exception. As the final heats wore down we saw Bethany Zelasko take home the first final with a solid win for the Girls in a very tough division. Next we moved into the Squids, which is pretty much everyones favorite division and so much fun to watch, these little tykes are the future of our sport and its awesome to watch them compete. Trevor Berry was able to snag the win on Saturday and secure himself a spot at TCT champs this year. Next division up was the groms and Kade Matson was able to snag that title with some solid surfing in the epic conditions. I tell you what the Groms grow up quick from squids and next thing you know they are Juniors and ripping even harder. Liam Osborne. A picture is worth a thousand words. Rooster tails, proof of perfectly timed turn. The Spread! Special thanks to Kicker, Go Pro, Pro Lite, New Era Cap, Revd Bars and all the other who make the tour possible. So the waves were super good, this was the finals. How often do you get waves like this in a heat. The juniors division was very competitive at Ventura as always and Nolan Rapoza ended up with the win and a sweet prize bag! Last but certainly not least was the Pro division and they did not disappoint, finishing out a stellar day with some incredible surfing. When it was all said and done Breyden Taylor bagged the win, 5 c-notes, and Pipes bragging rights until the next Butterfish at Ventura. A really good day overall for everyone involved and we couldn’t be more stoked on the event. Special thanks to our staff and everyone involved, especially all the families that came down and made it possible for us to continue the mission to Let The Kids Ride Free. See you next year Ventura and keep ripping!! That right there is a whole pack of winners! Oh California, you picturesque little devil you. Winners, watermelons, and of course cider showers. The squids winners, ever frothing!   Special Thanks Goes Out To Our Product Sponsors: NEW ERA CAP REV'D WIENERSCHNITZEL PENNY SKATEBOARDS SURFING MAGAZINE KICKER GOPRO FUTURE FINS WATERMANS SUNSCREEN PRO LITE   Power and Commitment on a solid section.
