Press Release:

WORLD-CLASS LOWER TRESTLES NEW HOME OF THE VOLCOM TOTALLY CRUSTACEOUS TOUR GLOBAL CHAMPIONSHIPS

SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., Jan. 8, 2015 – This summer, Volcom Stone's Totally Crustaceous Tour (TCT) Global Championships will find itself at a new home on the famed cobblestone point break of Lower Trestles. On June 22 and 23, the final two days of the 15th annual event will culminate at the world-class wave, notoriously consistent in the summer months, young up-and-coming surfers from around the world will get the opportunity of a lifetime: to surf an empty and coveted line up while chasing $30,000 in cash and prizes.

"At Volcom we believe it is important to have our major surfing events in world-class waves and we are thrilled to host the 2015 TCT Global Championships at Lower Trestles," said Brad Dougherty, Vice President of Volcom Surf. "This wave has a deep-rooted history of memorable surfing events and we are excited for the youth of the TCT to converge at one of the most rippable waves on earth for a shot at the Volcom 2015 TCT Global Championship title."

Homegrown out of Volcom's backyard at Newport Beach’s 54th Street break, the Volcom TCT began as a fun, free and sometimes raucous event for the kids dating back to the mid-90s. While staying true to the character of TCT and continuing to Let the Kids Ride Free, the past two decades have seen this event grow organically into a full-scale international tour, giving young surfers of all ages and abilities an opportunity to get their feet wet in competitive surfing. This season, 250 surfers have qualified for the Volcom TCT Global Championships through regional tour stops, and international qualifiers including Brazil, Australia, Latin America, Japan, New Zealand, Europe, USA, Indonesia, South Africa, and Puerto Rico.

Some of the best surfers in the world today, including current World Champion Gabriel Medina and World Tour surfers Nat Young, Kolohe Andino, Josh Kerr and Dusty Payne have competed on the Volcom TCT throughout their youth, and this season the event will display a new crop of up-and-comers climbing the ranks into their young professional careers.

In addition to providing a major platform to showcase this exciting crew of young talent, moving the event forward into June now aligns it with two other prestigious amateur championships: the Surfing America USA Championships and the National Scholastic Surfing Association (NSSA) National Championships. These three back-to-back contests give the possibility for qualified competitors in all three championships, a chance to win a trifecta title.

To top it off, the Volcom TCT Championship event at Trestles gives Volcom the incredible opportunity to partner with California State Parks on sustainability initiatives they stand behind, along with their philosophy to efficiently preserve and protect California’s natural resources.

Stay tuned for upcoming announcements and the live webcast at volcom.com! For the latest information on the Volcom 2015 TCT Global Championship follow @volcom, @volcomsurf, @volcomtct and join the conversation at #TCTchamps on Instagram.

We were able to have a quick chat with the girls while they rode around town in our newest Volcom x Georgia May Jagger Collection, a collection inspired by 90's streetwear. Keep scrolling for the interview and some major women's outfit inspiration! Tell us about the shoot locations! DEIMANTE: Ballroom is a DIY Spot in Buckinghamshire. An abandoned building that used to be offices. Around three years ago, local skaters located it and started building it up slowly into a skate park that is one of the best DIY spots I have seen. AIMEE: Soho and London. The land of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll. The London center of street and skater fashion. Soho is an area, as a musician, I spent a lot of time during my youth staring at all the instruments Denmark St. had to offer. It’s an interesting location as the collection was designed by Georgia May Jagger, the daughter of the frontman of the Rolling Stones. Soho has a lot of history attributed to her family. Do you prefer skating street or transitions? DEIMANTE: Both AIMEE: Both Who is your favorite skater? DEIMANTE: Nora Vasoncellos for sure AIMEE: Maria Dal Santo Do you skate goofy or regular?

VOLCOM CHAMSHACK 2018
Following the success of the joint Volcom Snow Team House/Marketing Facility in, which we’ve held since the winter of 2004, we figured that doing something particularly for our beloved French snow accounts was long overdue. It turns out not everyone can be bought with Beers & Schnitzels! Besides, the French Alps are, after all, home of arguably THE most impressive chunks of rocks in all of Europe. Many French location options were initially considered (Val D’isere, Portes Du Soleil, La Grave, etc) but in the end all roads and arrows pointed at Chamonix. There’s just no escaping this mythical village, or small town if you like, equally adored as it is feared and even dreaded. Given our commitment to making outerwear as technically advanced and rider-appealing as any mountain gear manufacturer out there, then field testing it in the harshest conditions available, (Be it on top of Aiguille du Midi mid-Blizzard or inside Elevation Bar during Scando happy hour) Chamonix was chosen faster than CGT can set up a road block. Voila! Deal sealed We took over a ravishing Chalet for a 3-week period, then sent out invites to our dearest accounts to come join us in celebration of life, aka snowboarding. What better place to get better acquainted with Volcom’s proprietary Zip Tech, Face Tech and TDS technologies than while riding and taking in the stunning, unrivalled high-alpine beauty of the Chamonix valley? A typical day started with a massive breakfast prepared by one of our marketing clowns, then assessing conditions, picking the right outerwear for the conditions and finally deciding, in close conjunction with one our guides, which mountain to grace with our presence. Snow Team riders Arthur Longo, Vale Ducourtil, Oli Gittler and many others all came by for various periods of time, entertaining and pushing our guests beyond their abilities, while showing them what’s possible on a snowboard when not spending your life in an office. Then, in hot pursuit close behind or slightly ahead (All depending on the best angle) was our long-time photographer extraordinaire Vernon Deck, immortalizing perhaps some of their finest riding ever captured on film and video as an added bonus for our dear visitors. Come 4 pm it was Beer o’clock, either directly in our on-site wheels, the Volcom Snow motor home, or where ever the nearest beer on tap was to be found. Upon returning to our chalet, showering & snacking, it was time for massages, movies, story talk or simply chilling.. Then at nite off we went to one of our many mouth-watering restaurants of choice, before returning back home to the good ole Chamschack chalet to sleep, dream of what tomorrow brings and repeat. On the rare occasion that someone wasn’t falling over by now but surprisingly still had juice in them for more, young stallion Vince was always standby, frothing to undo the top button of his shirt and let them chest hairs hit the highly gender-disparity challenged Chamonix nightlife. Would you expecting anything else? Your friends at Volcom Snow always keeps an eye open for every scenario. But that is a story all of its own. Merci Beaucoup to everyone who came to visit us, our guides, Man & Wolf Beer, Chamonix itself, Nitro and Korua for boards WELCOME TO THE VOLCOM CHAM SHACK HOUSE 2018 Happy camper  Snow legend Polo Tornado from Laboshop with style Sure beats a day at the office Valé Ducourtil, Polo Tornado, and Mr Caule spliting Tailgrab with the freak Mat Siboni L'1prévue shop The reward of a good split session It's important to celebrate when you have a good day Vallée Blanch mission with Valé and the group Valérian digs Vanilla Ice Le Brevent side view Our guide Paul at Le Tour David was always the first to sertve up cold ones.
