Great Scott! Volcom's Greatwhite Event Hits The Lane!

One thing has come to be constant at The Lane for the Volcom TCT events, the surf is always there with bells on. This past weekend in Santa Cruz for the last stop of the Greatwhite Series was no different than the previous trip. The surf was pumping all day, and the competitors took full advantage of the gift from Mother Ocean. Aesthetically pleasing to say the least. The Lane has plenty of eye candy. We showed up dark and early on a chilly Saturday morning and started to unload the truck and get the event site set up before the sunrise, with the help of a grip of frothing competitors ready to get the battle going.  There is always a lot of talent in the Greatwhite Series and we were eager to see what the Groms had up there sleeves that day. They did not disappoint. With a dropping tide all day the level of surfing just continued to rise as the surf continued to improve. Up, up, and away. Sam Coffey in controlled flight. Couple of Squids about to take the plunge. Top to bottom. Take notes kids, Johnny Gunn, teaching class. Happy people, colorful backdrop. Free surfers getting a lesson in "This is how it's done." Like we said, eye candy for days. The Lane offers many different spectator viewpoints. The cliffs are getting a particularly special view of this one. Progressive maneuvers killed the power game, we think not. We had to move into our usual daylight savings time double beach format and the competitors took full advantage of the slot and center peak, battling and advancing into the later rounds where the surfing just seemed to improve all day. When it was all said and done we had another back to back winning performance and a sweep of the Greatwhite series by Willie Eagleton in the Pro-Am. Willie is a local Grom in Santa Cruz and you can easily tell he surfs these waves regularly. Following up behind him was Tyler Gunter making the long drive up from OC to snag the juniors title with solid surfing all day. Riaru Ito had a great showing at The Lane and took home his second win in a row in the Groms division, with Jack Conti owning everyones favorite Squid divison, and the very talented Ashley Held talking home the title for the Girls. And to the victors go the spoils. Tyler Gunter in winning form all day. Who won?? Who won!!?? Come on tell us! Winner winner chicken dinner. Back to back winner Willie Eagleton straight up and in the money. Sparkling grape juice, acceptable substitute for a shower. Izaiah Hansen Style for miles. Squids Winners! Your Greatwhite winners! We had a blast in Santa Cruz this year for the Greatwhite series and a huge thank you to all the competitors and families that came out to support their groms and the Volcom TCT!! As always a special thanks to our sponsors that make this all possible, Volcom, New Era Cap Co., Rev’d Bars, Surfing Magazine, and especially Trevor from Penny Skateboards for making the trek up with us and hanging out running games with the Groms all day putting countless smiles on countless faces!

The Starfish Surf Series goes off in near perfect conditions at River Jetties!

The Frog House was packed, but with free food and games no one was worried. Wooly stopped by to take some photos with the local celebrities! TK the owner of Frog House and Wienerschnitzel lover getting the Groms all fired up! The Sandman family doing some shopping for the Holidays! You know you want that sweater. River Jetties never disappoints, we can always count on fun surf and tons of screaming kids! If for some reason you weren’t in Newport Beach this weekend you may have missed out on yet another incredible Starfish Event at River Jetties…not to mention the signup pre party at the Frog House with TK dressed as a Weinerschniztel throwing shrimp on the Barbie. Wooly was there, Balaram Stack was there, and of course a small Army of amped Grommies were there, frothing and ready to get signed up for Saturdays event When the tide dropped out the waves began to crank!  Kevin Shulz took full advantage. Saturday morning brought early light with the recent time change and also our first view of what looked to be very contestable surf. As always the crew was there and so were the Grommies ready to help set up and get the Starfish event under way. We fought a high tide for the first part of the morning but the kids made the best of it and as the tide dropped the River Jetties sandbars came to life! Through the middle of the event and into the later rounds we were witness to some of the most insane surfing Southern California has to offer. You have to stay on your toes during TCT events, you just never know when the flour is coming. When it was all said and done Jake Kelley took home the coveted Pro/Am division, the giant check, and the $500 smackaroos. Also taking top honors was Connor Dand shredding his way though the Juniors, Rairu Ito grabbing the top spot in Groms, Dane Matson slid into the squids leading role, and Meah Collins winning out for the Ladies. It was a great day of surfing and we can’t thank our sponsors Penny Skateboards and Rev’d Bars for coming down and hanging out with us all day and giving us a break from the screaming children, also New Era Caps, Surfing Magazing, and of course Wienerschnitzel for keeping us feed all weekend. As always thank you to all the competitors and families that made this event so special! Gunner Day is no stranger to letting his tail loose in perfect River Jetty conditions. Games and fun went pretty much all day! Kevin Shulz shredded all the way to a 3rd place finish in the Pro Am division. Hoola hooping down the beach for the win! The Pro Am division didn't have the most kids, but it was by far the most talented. Jake Kelly show of how to make it through your heats! Penny was down on the beach all day making sure the Groms stayed stoked! I'm leaving on a "Jett" plane! Jett Schilling spreading those wings on his way to the finals! This young lady walked away arms full! With the Squids having 8 first round heats we knew we had the best ten and unders from the entire state. Cole Houshmand took down a respectable 3rd place finish in the Groms division. You can never go wrong with a 20 Grom deep sack race! The talent was second to none and you can bet Newport will have a fighting chance to take the win at TCT Champs. Top three finalists in every division scored a brand spanking new Penny skate deck! At one point during the day every single wave had an air section and the competitors were taking full advantage. Pro Am and Juniors finalists showing off all their winnings! Jake Kelly battled through an extremely close final just nudging out Newport local Colin Moran. Groms and Girls trying to wipe the flour out of their eyes. Let us know if you can name this competitor in blue and we will give you a brand new LTKRF New Era Cap!

RESULTS | Totally Crustaceous Tour 2014-2015 | Mulletfish, Hossegor, France

Volcom’s Totally Crustaceous Tour (TCT) Mulletfish surf series is a classic event in Hossegor, celebrating its 13th edition in Les Culs Nus last weekend. It has changed quite a bit but keeps its roots stoking the kids out. With an European tour of events to qualify directly to the global TCT Champs in California this season, some of the Portuguese, Spanish and Basque surfers made it to Hossegor, bringing an international taste to the comp. Check out the photos for the recap of this good day down the beach, and stay tuned for a complete video highlights at the end of the tour! Don’t miss out next stop in Lanzarote for the Lavafish Surf Series on the 29-30 of November 2014 (1000€ prize money). Check out the complete Totally Crustaceous Tour European schedule, rules and overall placing HERE.   With south winds and crap waves in the morning the first rounds were difficult. Justin Becret finding a corner to help him pass his first Groms round. The future looks bright! Early morning check in Global Champs Juniors division semifinalist Quentin Grenard is one division up this year and couldn’t pass the Round 1 at the Mulletfish, no worries, you've got 3 more stops to qualify! The Squids division is always great to watch, from 6 year old rippers being pushed by their father to 10 year olds like Alfonso Antunes surfing on the rail, drawing perfect lines on the waves like a veteran Noa Dupouy is the local talent in the Squids division, this small air during the finals wasn’t enough to take down Alfonso Noa and Alfonso post Squids finals fair play after a great battle Meanwhile, Juniors were lighting up the second podium with massive hacks such as Erwann Blouin here Halloween on the beach with Mullets and Monsters Joao Moreira from Portugal throwing a bucket of water. He ended up in 2nd place in the Juniors division Here is Lens Arancibia from Biarritz, not sure if he’s claiming or frustrated because of his last turn on this righthander, he took home the trophy in the Juniors division and 100€ cash! Ariane Ochoa claimed the win after a Girls final with no locals. Camilla Kemp is a powerful surfer from Portugal, she finished 3rd in the Girls division. Skullcandy brought DJ Mike Rock to play on the beach in the afternoon, lots of prizes for the kids and organized a great party at Cafe De Paris (not pictured here) The surf kept on getting better during the afternoon with the wind fading and the tide going down. Here is Charly Quivront taking advantage of the fun ramps, going for a bs air reverse. Kids are always frothing around the beach games Jordan Oueslati finished at the 3rd place in the Pro Am finals after a Marathon day. William Aliotti kept on putting massive scores heat after heat in the Pro Am division, here he is flaring during the semis Thomas Delplace was stopped in the Pro Am semis but not without a fight Nelson Cloarec finished runner up in the Pro Am division despite landing a varial in the finals William Aliotti about to land a massive fs air reverse to pass the section of the wave and take home the victory in the Pro Am division, and 400€ in cash! The day ended in the dark! Reminding everyone it is November. William going bananas during the semis (he didn't land that one though) Thanks a lot to Hossegor city council, SkullCandy, Dj Mike Rock, Surf Lab Alex Lesbats, Pierre and Julien Thouron, Tom, Cedric Minjoulet and all our staff!
