What do you love most about being a pro surfer, and what's the toughest part?
The thing I love the most being a surfer pro is the lucky opportunity to live my passion and to travel in the all world and to discover countries, amazing waves and landscapes while spending my days in the water. I always wanted to be a pro surfer and I work so hard for it so I am proud today to be living my dreams. Being a pro surfer means making a lot of sacrifices like living far from my family and friends and focusing all the time on my goals.

How do you mentally prepare yourself for a contest?
I think it is most important to always do always your best, put all the chance on your side to succeed and to not have any regrets. I look at contests as a game; playing on the waves and trying to improve myself and my surfing in any kind of situation because surfing is my passion and something I love to do.

How do you describe your surfing style?
I think my surfing style is radical and engaged - sometimes a little bit aggressive.

What do you like to do during your down time (when you're not surfing)?
My second passion is art - I love to paint, spray and draw. I am painting a lot on surfboards, canvas's or skateboards recently to vary my creativity. I also did my first art show this summer!

How long have you been on the women's tour and how enjoyable is it?
I have been on the women's tour for three years and it sincerely get's better every year. Sometimes the contests make me nervous but i still have fun because surfing is something I love to do.

What's more inspiring to you at this moment, love and happiness or money and fame?
For sure love and happiness.

What charities are you involved in?
I am involved in Keep A Breast (Association against breast cancer). I recently painted a bust that is going to be sold to raise money for the association. In the future I would love to have my own association for the protection of the environment and the ocean.

Is there any place in the world you have not yet surfed but have always wanted to?

What's the secret to your fit body?
Eat raw and fresh food and always keep my body in action... have fun do sports.

Fancy restaurant or local night club?
Local night club!

What makes Volcom Women's so unique?
We are rocking!!! We are able to be natural and be completely ourself without complex

What do you wan the girls out there reading to never forget?
To believe in your own dream and never give up. You girls are all special and amazing so go big, have fun and be happy !



Festival Fever

Coachella has officially ended and it is a sad time of year for all of us festival lovers. Now all that is left are rad stories and crazy memories to last us another 365 days. Let the countdown begin! For the first weekend of Coachella, we were lucky enough to be at The Vestal Village campground where there was plenty of live music, booze and room to run around and get rowdy! If you didn't make the trip, don't worry! We captured great moments to share with all. Our girl Elena Hight swayin' to the music from her RV!  Relaxing by the water in her Volcom Bikini for a much needed break from the blazing sun Until next year... Keep the good vibes rollin'!

Coachella Essentials x OnTheRacks

Hangin' OnTheRacks and talking Coachella essentials with the lover of shoes, booze and adventure, Laura Ellner! "Coachella Week 1 was an absolute blast, and Volcom provided some seriously sweet essentials for the hot, hot desert heat! These boots were an absolute must for trekking around the sandy festival, and the "Eff Yah" loafers were such a hit with the fun, playful crowd. No better place to wear some sassy kicks than Coachella!" "Loved sporting the salmon, laser cut shorts with a basic white crop top and accessories galore (didn't hurt that they matched my newly dyed pink hair!). So perfect for poolside hangouts or party hopping. Fun and flirty...adding that extra somethin' to your standard cutoffs with the cute color and quirky detailing!" "I am such a fan of a romper. Easy, breezy - throw it on and you are done! Good to GO. Love this tie-dye style, and am also way obsessed with an all white ruffled number that I'll be sharing shortly in an outfit post! All ideal essentials for Coachella, or any other warm-weather festivals...and we know there are plenty more to come!" Check out her blog about fashion, life and libations! OnTheRacks

Womens Snow is on Fire!

This weekend, our women's snowboard riders were melting the snow! Killin'  it at the Annual JLA Banked Slalom in Mammoth, as well as the 2014 Community Cup at the Keystone Resort in Colorado. Eleven years ago snowboarding lost Jeff Anderson, one of its most passionate and influential riders. To honor Jeff’s memory his brother Billy created the JLA Banked Slalom at Mammoth Mountain. This year, our girl Elena Hight won the second Annual JLA Banked Slalom!  Jeff Anderson memorabilia was given to the riders as the prizes. Elena stoked about first place, but even more on her favorite Jeffy photos of all time! The Community Cup is dedicated to women’s snowboarding in an atmosphere ideal for women, and women only! This year our girl Christy Prior nailed it, taking home first place in Slopestyle, as well as first in the Rockin’ Rail Presented by Kicker Audio! Christy wasn't the only one who stole a spot in the top, Sarka Pancochova was right behind with second place in Slopestyle! Christy dominating the competition, winning Best Method & Best Rail Trick! So proud to bring home a win! Christy Prior (middle) and Sarka Pancochova (right)

Beach Hair Fix

If you're anything like us, you're always in or around the ocean. We just can't get enough of the water and the feel of sand between our toes. Even though salt water is great for your skin, it's not so friendly to those luscious locks of yours. Worry not fellow beach goers! We've got an easy remedy that will become your go to beauty routine! Beach Hair Remedy: 1. Mix two tablespoons each of a rinse-out conditioner, a leave-in conditioner, a deep conditioner, and a hair mask in a bowl. 2. Wet two large towels, wring them out, and put one in the microwave for a minute. 3. Comb the mixture through clean, damp hair, and wrap it all up in the hot towel. 4. Heat the second towel and alternate, repeating two or three more times. 5. Do this once a week—it makes hair much softer.

NYLON | Volcom x Ozzie

Something just feels Wright... Our collaboration with surfer, artist, and musician Ozzie Wright has been radiating good vibes! They even reached NYLON Magazine, who caught up with Ozzie and found out about the inner workings of his rad mind. What are five songs that perfectly embody your collab with Volcom? Actually some of the graphics [in the Volcom line] are song titles from songs I've written. "Shoot Rainbows into Fascism" and "The Smell of Rebellion" are from an album I recorded with Mylee Grace who is a great singer and the beautiful mother of my children. You can download it on Mylee Grace's Bandcamp. The album is called Mylee Grace and Ozzy Wrong Songs--haha, plugging it! There is alo a song called "Anti Bad Vibe Shield" off our new Goons of Doom record which is coming out soon. The other two songs [the embody the collection] might be the digital theme music for a japanese photobooth in a horrible mall. Or any thing by Dead Moon, my favorite band at the moment. If you had to get one thing tattooed on your forehead what would it be? A unicorn horn. What's you're favorite sentence? Hard to pick one but I'll try, "Don't be frightened, you are enlightened." Where's your favorite place to get inspired? Well, I'm in Japan right now. Even though it is frightening how futuristic and sci-fi like these cities are, there's also tons of inspiration here, but I'm going to say Bali is my favorite place to rejuvenate creative motions. If you could trade brains with one person, who would it be? I would not want to trade my brain, but I'm going say Adam Green because I went to see him play in Austin one time, and he rocked the house like few others.... He also makes mad fun art and long shitty movies, which I dig! I just supported his Kickstarter for $150 bucks, can't wait to see Aladdin. Where's the best beach in the whole world? I'm going to go with my home beach, Bungan, in Sydney. It's a beauty!
