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. Watch an extended piece on Yago and Pedro's love for both surfing and skating HERE. Burch on a self-made surf craft "This was a last minute trip for me, I only knew about it 48 hours before I left. 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. Ozzie, Ozzie, Ozzie "He [Yago] is the one pushing the boundaries on every trip, making old vets paddle back to the boat with their tails between their legs." -Tom "Burch. Burch. Burch. 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

Costa Rica's Gold - Surf Team Goes South!
Brand-new styles and colorways available now: Shop Boardshorts | Shop Swimwear So we took a trip to Costa Rica to shoot our all-new Fall boardshorts & swimwear collections, and instead of ending the story right now with "and the rest is history," we'd like to give you a little insight into our majestic journey to the rugged Central American country. Enter Balaram Stack, Coco Ho, Nate Tyler, Maud Le Car, Ryan Burch, Quincy Davis, and Andrew "Droid" Doheny. Picture a desolate rainforest and narrow unstructured dirt roads echoed by a variety of bird chips and animal calls only to be triumphed by thoughts racing through your head of "where's the beach and how fast can we get there." 3,400+ miles from the nearest home in California, obvious transplants (no help from Balaram & Droid's bleached hair), and a crew full of expensive surfboards and camera equipment is your scene. photos by Tom Carey Quickly finding the way to our newly-found two-week home w/ an epic pool inside a quaint little village, we linked up with local legend Tony Roberts who is a mastermind that paved the way for the community down here by designing skateparks and running various surf tours. After ripping through some fun spots inside the village, and getting weird in the neighboring jungle, we hopped on a friend's boat and made our voyage to the famous Witch's Rock. For any surfer, Witch's is a bucket list mission and our journey there was one for the books! Witch's Rock Our goal was to shoot the team in our new boardshorts and swimwear collections, get some rad action shots, explore the land, and simply have a good time on this journey through a quest for spiritual intoxication. And we got that. But we got more, a lot more. Take a ride with us through a captivating feel-good photo book from our Costa Rican adventure: Droid: pro surfer, pro model.
