The waves were either firing or big and stormy. This is the latter. Taken from the 3rd story of the Pipe House. Never a dull moment with Tai Vandyke and Burger! When the event was called off, thus presumed a lei day, the boys spread thin: searching for waves on another part of the island, golfing, getting ready for the event, or laying around the Pipe House watching movies. In this photo you can see Mitch Coleborn (left) and Fat Tony (couch) while a documentary was rolling. Tons of music documentaries were watched on lei days.

Finals Day Highlights - 2017 Volcom Pipe Pro
Congratulations to Soli Bailey, 2017 Volcom Pipe Pro Champion! Finals Day at the Volcom Pipe Pro was unpredictable! We kicked off the morning early with the two remaining heats of Round 3, then we immediately got into Round 4 competition. Waves started off slow as the sun rose over Sunset Elementary, but it wasn’t long before sets started rolling in and guys started dropping some big scores. The first 9-point ride went to Brazil’s Adriano De Souza on a heavy Backdoor wave in his first heat of the competition to secure himself into Round 4. Along with Adriano, Ian Crane, Benji Brand, and Luke Shepardson advanced to the next round. Round 4 saw similar off-beat scores from the inconsistent, yet improving sets, but boys made it happen. Brian Toth kicked off Heat 2 with a solid 6-point ride, while in the last minute of the heat, Kiron Jabour dropped to third place after Soli Bailey secured solid 6.13 score. Heat 3 we saw Mitch Coleborn bag a solid Pipe wave earning himself a 6.17 to push himself into the lead, and right behind him, Koa Smith took off on a similar Pipe wave, although not as deep as Coleborn, and earned himself a 5-point ride. John John Florence once again delivered, dropping a 7.5 score right off the bat, then following it up with a 5.17 and 6.83 to hold the heat. Also getting through Heat 4 was Hawaii’s Hank Gaskell. Heat 5 saw Brazil’s David do Carmo pull off a rocky bottom turn on a Pipe wave and miraculously got spit out with his hands in his air to earn a well-deserved 6.83, while crowd-favorite Mason Ho surprisingly went down due to lack of waves in the heat. The next heat saw more upsets with Makuakai Rothman being knocked out, as well as Yago Dora, who has been in-form the whole event. But it was Bruce Irons, Aritz Aranburu, Lucas Silveira, Luke Shepardson, Adriano De Souza, and Makai McNamara who all coupled good enough scores to move into the Quarterfinals. During the Quarterfinals, the side wind had slightly picked up and turned things a bit messier in the lineup, but there were still some gems to be had. Soli Bailey nabbed a 6.17 on a clean Backdoor right, to add to his previous 4.0, and an on-fire Leandro Usuna from Argentina grabbed a couple mid-range scores, both enough to advance them into the Semifinals. Heat 2 saw slower wave conditions and increased wind as John John Florence, Griffin Colapinto, Mitch Coleborn, and Brian Toth tried battling through the conditions in any way possible. While they were hoping for barrels, it turned out to be turns that prevailed as John John and Griffin each found a Backdoor wave which delivered their advancement. Quarterfinal Heat 3 went nearly 15 minutes before anyone had caught a decent wave, and it was Bruce Irons who delivered the first punch on a smaller Backdoor barrel to receive a well-earned 6.33 score. Along with Bruce, it was David do Carmo to roll into the already-stacked Semifinal heats. Heat 4 was another one for turns, with a sneaky tube seen by Artiz Aranburu. While it was another low-scoring heat with the winds affecting the conditions, Aranburu dropped some heavy turns and advanced with a 11.34 and Adriano De Souza advanced with a 7.50. And there it was, the Semifinals were set! Semifinal 1 saw Australia's Soli Bailey, Argentina's Leandro Usuna, Hawaii's John John Florence, and USA's Griffin Colapinto. John John drew first blood with a couple playful hooks on a Backdoor right, but it was Soli Bailey to find a barrel at Pipe to get the early lead with a 5.0. Things went relatively quiet, and towards the end of the heat, John John was sitting in fourth position and grabbed a one-turn Backdoor right, but it wasn't enough. Soli Bailey dropped a huge 8.17 score near the five-minute mark, and in the dying seconds of the heat, Griffin Colapinto found a clean Backdoor barrel, barely sneaking out the doggy dog, to earn a 7.37, securing his spot in the finals. Semifinal 2 competitors picked up the heat and competition went fierce. An in-rhythm Bruce Irons wowed the fans with a 6.77 barrel, and David do Carmo dropped two solid turns on a Backdoor set wave to receive a 5.83. While Aritz Aranburu and David do Carmo were able to get some solid scores, it was Adriano De Souza who advanced to the Finals, along with Bruce Irons who managed to drop a near-perfect 8.93 score. THE FINALS With the resurgence of Bruce, the competitive spirit of Adriano, the rookie-hunger of Griffin, and the underdog-hopes of Soli, the final was truly exciting to watch. It started off with a strong paddle battle between Bruce and Adriano for priority, then saw Soli snag a mid-range 5.67 Backdoor tube. With the wind magically switching to slight offshore during the final, it had seemed luck was on their side, but the boys had to wait as a lack of waves keep them searching for a score. A clean-up set caught Soli inside and breaking his leash off causing him to retrieve a backup board from the beach. With nine minutes left, Bruce and Griffin were put in a combo situation when Soli dropped the highest single-wave score of the heat of a 7.33. For the remainder of the final, the waves didn't produce any additional high-scoring potential, which left Soli eagerly counting down the clock to the final second, which he did. Congratulations to all the finalists, and Soli Bailey for being crowned the 2017 Volcom Pipe Pro Champion!

Day 3 Highlights - 2017 Volcom Pipe Pro
Day 3 at the 2017 Volcom Pipe Pro went down in the books! It was a day of heavy upsets and flawless conditions which concluded with Heat 14 of Round 3. Kelly Slater went down to an in-form Bruce Irons and young gun Seth Moniz, while Jack Robinson, who was a standout at last year's Volcom Pipe Pro, ended up losing priority and searching for a score in the dying minutes of his heat, but luck didn't deliver. Another story from today was a collision in Heat 6 by Bino Lopes and Joshua Burke who mistakenly tried crossing each other on their ways to Pipe and Backdoor. As the day progressed, the sun came out, things started heating up (no pun intended), and the highlight clips were served. John John exercised his home base knowledge and bagged a couple huge scores in typical JJ fashion, Makuakai Rothman got blown out of a flawless Backdoor barrel, Miguel Tudela snagged a textbook Pipe gem, and of course, there were some classic Pipeline wipeouts. Be sure to catch the recap video above for all of today's highlights and action! Check back with us tomorrow morning @ 9am PT at redbull.tv/volcompipepro to see if the final day of surfing will get underway!

A Candid Photo Journal: Indo Boat Trip w/ Volcom Surf Team
Over the holidays we released a new surf edit (watch it here) featuring a few of our colorful team riders surfing in Indonesia, all of whom absolutely shred in their own unique ways. We have Ryan Burch who takes the high line, creating a unique approach to waves and style which transcends generations, Ozzie Wright who flies down the wave with long rainbow floaters, huge airs, and signature hand-painted surfboards, the electric high-flyin' Brazilian, Yago Dora, the all-or-nothing rowdy Aussie, Mitch Coleborn, the East Coast frothing grom, Pat Schmidt, and the lone comedic Frenchman, Charly Quivront. While each dude is quite different from one another, in the water and on land, they all share the same stoke and passion for surfing and the search for good times. Tom Carey, Volcom veteran photographer, wanted to load up the boat with disposable cameras to catch the other side of the trip. The side that displays the non-surfing shenanigans, adventures, and antics of the team. Cameras were scattered throughout the boat for anyone who wanted to wind up the plastic box and snap something worth capturing. Hundreds of film photos were taken at random by the photographers and some of the team dudes, and by the end of the trip, that winding sound haunted everyone's dreams (I can hear it now). Once we returned home and developed a few dozen of the disposable cameras down at the local market, we pulled some favorites. Take a scroll below and check out this behind-the-scenes, candid photo journal from our Indonesian boat trip. WORDS: Tom Carey PHOTOS: Tom Carey, Luke Forgay, Scott Stinnett CAMERAS: Disposables!! Anytime you could step foot onto dry land was a good moment. Little surf check in our tinny. I think we were at Asu at this point. Ryan Burch, Nate Leal (filmer), Yago Dora, Charly Quivront, Ozzie Wright. All smiles at this point in the trip. Charlie had some weird theory about stickers and boards. Like the boards wouldn't work good if the stickers were in the wrong place or something. Captain Charly Cat. Charly Quivront, the little French punk of the trip surfed circles around everyone. He might have held the Bintang record for the trip. Or at least the Euro record. We stopped for gas one morning in some weird port. Ozzie had some spray paint so the boys left their mark. Gasoline, cigarettes. No problem in Indo. Asu again. We dodged storms a lot on this trip. Indo can be a funny place. Classic Indo fishing boat running through the islands. Once in a while you'll see some feral surfers rocking up on one. That shit is hardcore. Captain Ozzie just going over some charts and plotting our next destination. I tried to go check the waves. I made it about 20 years before the engine acted up. That's where you live for two weeks. Pretty tough at times. Mitch Coleborn trying to keep his sanity. I'm guessing this is Coleborn doing what he does best.. being a knucklehead. Mitch was an animal on the trip. Spawning out on multiple occasions. I think he broke about eight chairs on the deck. Nate loves pole dancing to slow jams by Ozzie. Ozzie is like 38 going on 19. The biggest kid I know. Ozzie got jabbed by his board on day one in big surf. Just missed his eye by a half inch. Get me two more! Ozzie in the pontoon. Air guitar to beer chug? Ozzie finding his groove. Ozzie and his paintbrush. He's the most inspiring, honest, and caring dude I know. I try to bring him on every trip because you know it will be a good one with his infectious love. That smile says it all. Ozzie spends a lot of time in Indo, This was day one in Indo. You think he's excited?! We bought a big stash of fireworks for the trip. I think they lasted like two days. Pat Schmidt is from New Jersey and often wakes up in the Jersey Shore with that finger. Rule #1: Bring noise-cancelling headphones on trips. You'll thank me later. Pat Schmidt jumped on board last minute, found some tubes, and kept things pretty light on board. Pat Schmidt, part hipster, part tube pig, and part party pig. But all together, make up one solid human. We bought about $1K worth of beer. It didn't last long. Ryan Burch beat the heat. When the sun is out and the wind is light, you really start to feel it. I have no idea where these hats came from, but the boys were having a little fun in the cockpit. I think Ozzie is singing that song, "talking about good times," which became the mantra of the trip. Ryan Burch is one of a kind. He gets these crazy eyes and has a little dark side that I like about him. You can hear Ryan Burch's contagious laugh through the photo. One of the guys you always want to be around. The Indonesians can sleep anywhere, in any position, at any time. They are the biggest legends. When the boat is rocking, just go with it. We hit some heavy seas, but made the most of it. I have no idea what's happening here. We may have been in big surf and kind of jumping with the waves. Pat Schmidt and I, late night, doing god knows what. This is what dinner would look like. The food was so good on the Bohemian Baru. It was usually lights out for me after that. What goes down, must come back up. Yago Dora making the most of the time in Indo. If you do a boat trip with Yago Dora, pack a lot of chocolate. Trust me. Not sure what Yago is doing here, but you're always looking for something fun to do on these trips to break up the monotony. Yago Dora is the ultimate surf turkey. Best dude to go surfing with. Yago Dora is just learning how to play guitar. Which can be frustrating when everyone is trying to watch a movie haha. Yago Dora, Charly Quivront. Game faces on. Yago Dora the photographer. I think the 5-10 is a good call today.

Indonesia Delivers For Volcom Surf Team
Indonesia. Always a sought-after destination for good waves and good times. Cliche? Of course. But who cares. It's on the list of favorite surf destinations for many, and for good reason. The place delivers! So we decided to take a bunch of dudes from the Volcom Surf Team to venture around the Mentawais to rip some waves, get tubbed, have some beers, share (and create) stories, and, to be honest, we wanted to get some photos of them in our new boardshorts. Luckily for us, we scored a ton of epic footage so we decided to make this video. Check it out above, and learn more about the trip below! MEET THE DUDES... YAGO DORA RYAN BURCH MITCH COLEBORN OZZIE WRONG PAT SCHMIDT CHARLY QUIVRONT Peep Surfing Magazine's feature for an inside look at the trip and story by photographer Tom Carey: http://features.surfingmagazine.com/669292   PHOTOS BY TOM CAREY "After 15 years of sketchy boat trips and Indonesian white-knuckle adventures, we finally had a swell forecast that was too good to be true. Usually you line these trips up months in advance, juggling surfers’ contest schedules, and all sorts of other bullshit, and end up getting what you get. Which isn’t always good. So, to luck into a forecast like ours takes more than a decade of trying. Literally. I would know." -Tom Burch floating on his sled "Gotta support the team." Mitch and Ozzie fully support Yago's decision to burn them. Sharing is caring. Pat and Ozzie prefer frontside tubes. "Waves aren't usually the problem on boat trips. It's the people on them and how they mesh together... Luckily for us we had the biggest animals ever on our boat... As long as the vibe stays at optimum levels, a little flat spell or some rough seas can't spoil your fun." -Tom Ozzie tweak "Charly was the lone Frenchman of the trip... I think he was psyched to hang out with some of the older crew like Ozzie and Mitch." -Tom "If you're on a boat and you see an ink stamp that says "too fast for Satan," "aliens were here," "don't be frightened you're enlightened," "shoot rainbows into fascism," or "may peace be in your eyes," it was stamped there by me." -Ozzie Mitch rockin' a pair of his new favorite boardies, the Polka Stoneys "Burch is also real... He speaks his mind and has this laugh that is so contagious. It sounds like Lewis Skolnik from Revenge of the Nerds." -Tom Pat Schmidt. "I love the way guys from Jersey surf. There's a different approach to their power surfing that is unparalleled." -Tom "Ozzie is like the king's jester on these trips - he's always making sure everyone's having the best time." -Tom "Yago is the water baby. You have to drag him out by the hair. But his surf psyche also rubs off on everyone." -Tom "The best thing to do [on boat trips] is bring Ozzie Wright. He basically turned his room into an art studio. We watched him paint and he played his ukulele and kazoo the whole trip. He had everyone in stitches." -Mitch "I think Mitch put back the most beers, making his Aussie brethren proud. I got tackled four times by him breaking a chair each time. The security cameras on the boat are holding some gold." -Tom "Good Time Charly" "Pat Schmidt was one of the groms of the trip. He was so psyched to be out there. That’s the type of person you need on a trip. Someone that is just happy to be drinking beers, lighting fireworks and listening to some tunes." -Tom "He [Ozzie] has been going out to the Ments for longer than any surfer. His experience ends up rubbing off on everyone else. Arts and crafts time usually gets extended a few hours when he’s around." -Tom Yago loves to skate. He grew up in Brazil with Volcom Skate Team rider Pedro Barros, and if you watch their techniques and approaches, their styles are heavily influenced by each other's sport.

This was also my first time going on a boat for that long, and I wasn't prepared at all. Luckily, the boys had all sorts of things to occupy our time." -Charly "Mitch will be out there when he sees his perfect window and he goes for broke. He doesn’t hold back. I think that’s why we all love the 'Spawn.'" -Tom New Jersey's Pat Schmidt trying to soak up some sun before heading back to the dreary winter season on the East Coast.

Man, I haven’t seen surfing like his in my 15 years of shooting. Just when you think he’s some cruiser on an old twin fin he’ll bust out his asymmetrical board and go fucking ballistic." -Tom "We Ubered. We surfed. We drank. We pissed some people off. But whatever we did, we did it right. Life’s short. Party on." -Tom
