The VQS Pufferfish surf series kicks off at Lahaina Harbor on Maui!

With a pretty grim forecast, we were just hoping for some Volcom luck.. when we arrived at the harbor on Friday evening we were greeted by a big pile of frothing Groms, and contestable little waves. I ordered up a few pizzas and we did a solid little Pre-Signup for the kids! When we awoke Saturday morning we walked down to the beach it was like the kids never went to bed! So we thought we better not make them wait any longer and got the first Pufferfish of the year underway! Check out some highlights from the days action and thanks again to everyone that makes these events possible!

The crowd shuffled in for the first Pufferfish of the year and it was packed!
