What a great day it was for the final day of the 2015 Totally Crustaceous Tour Global Champs down at Lower Trestles! Once again, we saw perfect 10-point rides, impressive surfing from all divisions across the board, and excellent wave and weather conditions.

The Pro-am division kicked things off with their Quarterfinal heats. Charly Quivront, Yago Dora, and Miguel Tudela all finished in the top spots securing their place in the Semi-finals, which saw excellent heat scores with 16 & 17-point heat totals. The finals were then set with Griffin Colapinto (US), Miguel Tudela (PER), Yago Dora (BRA), and Noah Schweizer (US). The Groms lit it up once again while standout, not just in the Grom division, but overall, Nick Marshall, dropping another 10-point ride with several impressive back-up scores.

The Groms Semifinals had standout performances by Mateus Herdy and Kade Matson, while the Juniors continued to battle it out with another top performing heat by Jake Marshall with a near-perfect score of a 19.50.

Girls Semifinals were stacked with an almost all United States draw. Throughout the event, Alyssa Spencer has been on fire and she proved once again why she deserved to be here, dominating her heat for Semi #1 while another in-form surfer Caroline Marks grabbed her two high heat scores and prepared for the final.

The Girls final included Alyssa Spencer (US), Camilla Kemp (PRT), Caroline Marks (US), and Kahanu Delovio (US). Right from the start, we knew it was going to be a close final with all Girls scoring great waves, but it was Caroline Marks who continued to show us what the level of Girls surfing has become, impressing the judges to total a heat score of 17.34 for the win.

Junior finals saw Jake Marshall (US), Wil Reid (US), Harley-Ross Webster (AUS), and Nolan Rapoza (US). Three Americans and one lone Aussie held nothing back out in the Lowers lineup as they traded off wave-after-wave, eager to get a piece of that $30,000 prize. In the end, it was Nolan Rapoza who bagged an impressive heat total to be crowned the 2015 TCT Juniors Global Champ!

The Grom final was a nail-biting finish! A favorite going into the final was Nick Marshall, who between he and his brother (Jake Marshall), have been on fire the entire event. Brazil's Mateus Herdy was a definite force and held the first position, pushing Nick Marshall, Kade Matson, and Robert Grillho III to find some gems. It came down to the last few seconds when Nick grabbed a quick left with a solid air reverse, but came up just short, leaving Mateus to be crowned the 2015 Volcom TCT Champs Groms winner!

The Squids final was electric with Jackson Bunch (HI) grabbing an early lead with two high heat scores and some solid confidence. Brayden Burch (US), Afonso Antunes (PRT), and Dane Matson (US) had close heat totals all between 10 and 11 points. Jackson Bunch held his ground and topped the other three competitors and was named the 2015 Volcom TCT Champs Squids Champion!

The Pro-am final saw Miguel Tudela (PER), Noah Schweizer (US), Yago Dora (BRA), and Griffin Colapinto (US). While the wave conditions were improving, the sun was out, the beach was packed, and the 20 & Under men were ready for action! A stacked final indeed, and we were not disappointed. Yago excited the crowd grabbing 7s and 8s all the way to the end of the end, doing air reverse after air reverse. But Miguel battled back by getting one of the best waves of the final at the very end of the heat getting a 9.6 and taking the lead.

Euro Thrash Video: Volcom Surf's European Vacation
Our good friends at Wasted Talent put together a video of some of our riders: Noa Deane, Ryan Burch, Gony Zubizarreta, and more, thrashing their way through Portugal, Spain, and France during their summer '17 European vacation. From scoring one of the best days of surf they've ever seen at The Cave, to touring the local watering holes and taverns, to getting caught up in a weird presidental campaign in Paris, there was no shortage of amusement and European debauchery. It was a great trip that surely lived up to its name: Euro Thrash. The team riders, photographers, and crew, all became great friends by the end of the trip and ended on a promise to all return back soon. Euro Thrash 2.0?

Elena Hight - ThisFirst - 10/17
What happens when you give all your blood, sweat, and tears and it just isn’t good enough? Elena Hight (@elenahight) is no stranger to the relentless work it takes to feed a passion. As a top contender in the women’s halfpipe contest circuit, a Winter X Games gold medalist, and a two-time Olympian, Elena understands the amount of dedication and sacrifice required to stand on top of the podium. "Everything that I do and think, and base my life around, is around snowboarding, and when it's not going good, there's almost no escape." Listen to Elena as she explains her obsession of achieving the impossible, quitting not being an option, and the ups and downs of putting your passion before everything, in this latest episode of ThisFirst.

The Film Project BCN event recap
This last summer some of the best skateboarding photographers in Europe were given 3 film rolls to shoot. The idea was to use them as they wanted and ship them back for this The Film Project initiative supported by Volcom. The result it´s been really exciting as it usually happens with analog photography. Forty pictures were selected and put together in this first exhibition which took place in Studio Store venue, located in the Borne neighborhood in Barcelona last October the 4th. Lots of skateboarders and analog photography lovers showed up to see the works while they shared some fresh Pabst Blue Ribbon beers. If you missed it, stay tuned for some more dates around Euro cities to be confirmed and check #TheFilmProject2017 hashtag for peeping a bit. Some select pics will feature in the finest skate magazines in Europe. Thanks to Pabst Spain for the colds, Dogway crew and all the contributing photographers for making it happen. The photos will be exhibited in various locations throughout October and November, stay tuned for a show/party near you!

Leuven Skate Contest
The Leuven Family gathered once again for Leuven Skate Contest. Every year they have a new theme, this time they went all the way with JOHNNY’S & MARINAS. There wasn’t just a costume contest, beers and bbq. No, there was some skateboarding also. You’ve never seen a bowl and street contest this friendly and fun. Simon Deprez took the win with the Volcom best trick contest. Everybody killed it but one guy stood out, he protected his hometown and his title as biggest Johnny of them all, so Jonathan Thijs took the win. And there is no better Johnny prize than a Scooter. Once again, big thanks to the Leuven Family, Twits Skateshop and Volcom. See y’all next year. Credit Photo : Joselito Verschaeve
