What do you love most about being a pro surfer, and what's the toughest part?
I love being able to travel the world doing something I love! There are a lot of obligations that make the job hard but at the end of the day no matter what I remind myself I am having fun doing my job, so in love :)

How do you mentally prepare yourself for a contest?
I don't like to mentally overdo myself so I try to take it lightly. There are several things I must do before events - sleep early, eat light, surf the contest site before the event...and I think just doing those few things get me into the mindset that I am ready. It's all about my surfing on the day and not anyone else's in the heat.

How do you describe your surfing style?
I hope my style of surfing comes across as grateful, powerful and progressive. I mean, that is what I am for for sure. Haha!

What do you like to do during your down time (when you're not surfing)?
When I'm not surfing - well it depends on where I am. During an event anywhere in the world I take it super mellow...probably spend more time than ever watching TV show, on Skype or taking it easy laughing all days with friends between free surfs. I don't like to over exert too much energy on off days during an event. Not during an event/at home between surfs I enjoy doing anything active - I can't not be doing something active for too long.

How long have you been on the women;s tour and how enjoyable is it?
I've been on tour now for five years and it's been one heck of a ride! I've learned so much ever since graduating high school and living my life on tour - traveling, learning to lose, learning to win, work with media, compete continuously and still be human!!! It is very enjoyable being able to surf around the world on such a platform that ASP gives us!

What's more inspiring to you at this moment, love and happiness or money and fame?
Love and happiness!!! Because with that comes success, which leads to money and fame I guess? And even if that philosophy of mine is incorrect, who needs money and fame when they've got happiness??!

What charities are you involved in?
The Boys and Girls Club of Hawaii. Such an amazing organization - it simply gives kids another place they belong. I love being someone younger kids can spend time with and look up to because I am one who was always so driven and inspired by others, whether it be someone I watched on movies or got to meet and actually hang around! I want to be that positive influence that helps the kids believe in their potential. That's all it really takes :)

Is there any place in the world you have not yet surfed but have always wanted to?
Tahiti! It's only five hours away form my home I don't know how I haven't been yet!!

What's the secret to your fit body?
Everything in moderation! I am an athlete so I treat my body like one. I eat proper meals - try my best to limit sweets and what isn't good for me but I am also human so I've learned.. "everything in moderation!" I also believe in doing something active every day - if I don't surf I definitely have to make up for it somewhere else, but I think that's also my personality. I've also just realized how much I am beginning to like yoga!

Fancy restaurant or local night club?
Fancy restaurant! I am all about good food!

What makes Volcom Women's so unique?
Volcom Women's is so unique because it covers every aspect of women's fashion - it's edgy, it can be very girly, athletic, fancy, casual and fun!!!

What do you wan the girls out there reading to never forget?
Hold your ground for what you believe in, be passionate in all you do, always remember there is someone out there to make proud, and never ever...for any reason, lose your dignity!!!

This past Saturday Dustin Dollin, Ben Raemers, Harry Lintell, Eniz Fazliov and Lois Pendlebury spent some time in the UK at Visions Festival – a Real Life Happening spread across several venues in Hackney, London. Following on from two critically acclaimed and sold out years, the festival hosted a whole range of happenings from the East London Print Makers screening onto our shirts to the Fat White Family band, The Hinds and more playing killer shows in this third year sold out event making the whole thing a blast from start to finish. Volcom also took along our two prize winners who hung out with the crew for the day after winning Volcom Brand Jeans, travel, hotels, guest list tickets and plenty of beers. Matthew Rutherford -­‐ Prize Winner: “Festival tickets, travel, hotel, jeans. I’ve been looking forward to the bands, the food and the beer. You can’t beat this can you, really?" The Fat White Family smashed through a killer set with their frontman Lias getting well amongst it all with the crowd. Our Finnish connection, Eniz Fazliov enjoying the Visions outdoor space… …With our Aussie connection Dustin. The Visions blimp flew high and mighty all day above the festival. Our contest winners Matt Rutherford and Joe Seager sank a few beers with Dustin and lurked heavily with us throughout the festival. Good times! Lois Pendlebury and Harry Lintell. A couple of teeth short. Dustin sees downtime, Lois sees playtime. No caption required Our pal and PR master, Leanne trying to work out what trouble Harry’s hijinks will land them in next. The party crew outside the Oval Space venue. Low key Raemers. Quietly fuelling the fire… Theres something out there. Claw Marks really, really know how to put on a show. Hanging from the rafters. Literally. London Fields in between shows. Dustin & Eniz take five… Always on. Dustin kept everyone entertained – especially our two new mates. The face of a man with a plan REDDOS! Stretching before hitting the next show. That’s some serious knowledge! Ben Raemers. Taxi service in full swing.

Volcom Bastille Days Opening
Cliquez ici pour la version Française On Wednesday July 1st, Volcom opened its skate obstacle, which will remain all summer long on the Esplanade du Port de l’Arsenal, Place de La Bastille in Paris. The afternoon started with the official opening by the Paris city council, with the presence of three Mayors of the surrounding districts, and then the spot got invaded by skateboarders, never minding the high temperatures (Europe is sweating under a record heat wave). Tons of goodies were given away at our DIY stations (tee shirt screening, hat customising and button making…) and in no time, everyone was hyped to watch the action unfold. Dustin Dollin, David Gonzalez, Eniz Fazliov, Axel Cruysberghs, Victor Pellegrin, Vincent Coupeau and Romain Covolan from the Volcom skate team put down a demo matching the heat! At the end of the demo the list of ABD’s of the spot got quite filled up with notably a switch fs 360 and a switch flip from Axel over the trash bin, some trademark crails from David, an alley oop fs 270 heelflip from Eniz and a a double flip by Victor… Right after this some of Paris big dogs entered into the mix during a “Trick 4 Trick” session organised by Electric, where the skaters had to land the same tricks that Electric team skaters David Gonzalez, Axel Cruysberghs and Sam Partaix were doing for cash. The day ended with music and drinks, but unfortunately without the planned live concert due to some tech problems, and the skateboarders took over the spot for a first of a long series of evening sessions. A big thank you to the city council of Paris for bringing this to skateboarding in Paris, Sterling Projects for such a rad design and finishing details, to Cosanostra skatepark, to Carlsberg for the refreshments, Snowbeach, Urban Surfers, Citadium, Hawaii Surf, Guillaume Perimony for the clip and Jelle Keppens for the photos. See you on Sunday July12th, starting at 19h for an instalment of photos from De Paris yearbook, music, refreshments and the screening of the video “Deuxième Vague”-  Entry is free.

L’après-midi commença par l’ouverture officielle par la Mairie de Paris, avec la présence des trois maires des arrondissements voisins. Ensuite le spot a été pris d’assaut par tous les skateboarders malgré la temperature caniculaire. Des tonnes de goodies ont été donnés suite à des sessions Do It Yourself (impression de tee shirts, customisation de casquettes, fabrication de badges…), et peu après, le public a profité d’une demo de skate du team Volcom avec Dustin Dollin, David Gonzalez, Eniz Fazliov, Axel Cruysberghs, Victor Pellegrin, Vincent Coupeau et Romain Covolan qui ont tout donné. A la fin de la démo, la liste des ABD du spot fut plutôt bien remplie, avec notamment un switch fs 360 et un switch flip d’Axel au dessus de la poubelle, des crails magnifiques de David, un alley oop fs 270 heelflip d’Eniz ou encore un double flip de Victor… Juste après ça, quelques uns des meilleurs skaters de Paris entrèrent en jeu pour une session “Trick 4 Trick” organisée par Electric, durant laquelle les skateurs devaient replaquer les mêmes figures que les membres du team Electric David Gonzalez, Axel Cruysberghs et Sam Partaix avec 500€ en cash à la clé. La journée s’est terminée en musique et avec quelques boissons fraiches, malheureusement sans le concert qui était prévu, en raison de quelques problèmes techniques. Les skateurs ont pris possession du spot pour une première session nocturne en présence de presque tout le gratin de la scène skate Parisienne. Un énorme merci à la mairie de Paris pour avoir permis l’installation de cette structure, Sterling Projects pour un tel design et de supers finitions, à Cosanostra skatepark, à Carlsberg pour les rafraichissements, à Snowbeach, à Urban Surfers, à Citadium, à Hawaii Surf, à Guillaume Perimony pour le clip vidéo et à Jelle Keppens pour les photos. On espère vous retrouver le dimanche 12 juillet à partir de 19h pour une exposition photos du yearbook De Paris, de la musique, des rafraichissements et la diffusion en plein air de la vidéo Deuxième Vague.
