The TCT Seacow Brings the Holiday Cheer to New Smyrna Beach, FL!
The Totally Crustaceous Tour brought the Holiday cheer to the beautiful city of New Smyrna Beach, FL this past weekend for the annual TCT Seacow. With the freakish high tide that has been plaguing South Florida we were forced to move the event to Flagler ave in the heart of New Smyrna Beach. We moved the event from The Inlet to Flagler Ave due to the freakish full moon high tide. We rolled up the night before the contest for our annual pre-party extravaganza at Red Dog Surf Shop just up the street. We signed up 60 kids and shoved delicious hot dogs down the throats of all the screaming children. The night came to a close and with the thought of sugar plums dancing in their heads the children called it a night. Chauncey Robinson showing of just how playful the waves at Flagler are. The next morning we were greeted with fun 2-4ft surf and another 100 kids waiting to sign up. We ran through the day without a hitch and before we new it was time crown our Holiday Seacow Champion. Thanks to all who made this such a special event and Happy Holidays to everyone! Through the dunes the compound over looks the super fun 2-4 ft surf. Noah Schweizer is the local favorite looking for his 3rd consecutive win at the Seacow. Kids getting into the Christmas spirit with a little dizzy race. Float the Seacow boat. Corey Howell showing some super style though a Flagler section. The annual Flagler blessing take place before every event to make sure there are no little shark bites throughout the day. Matt Zaccaria letting the tail go a on his way to the finals. Even the contest directors get in the way of the mess every once and while. The waves stayed fun all day even through the extreme low tide. Chauncey again on his backhand attack. Young TCT legend in training teaching the kids the ins and outs of a proper crab walk. The sections at New Smyrna provide plenty of opportunity for high scoring airs. Squids had a talent packed day in more then epic conditions for them. It wasn't just airs going down, there were plenty of meaty turns to be had. The Watermelon winner could barely hold all of the prizes and still get a big taste of that sparkling cider. Daniel Glenn during his early round heats, he would go onto take the qualifying 3rd place spot. The winners from the 2014 TCT Seacow!

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! See you next year Santa Cruz!! Sticky grape juice Squids.

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!
