VOLCOM SURF HAPPENING
CONTEST SERIES FOR THE YOUTH
Volcom is back with its contest series for the youth, combining the traditional surf competition heat format with the flexibility that modern digital tools offer.
Volcom Surf Happenings provides a proper and fair platform for competing surfers to battle it out at the most convenient location and time as agreed upon by both competitors.
For each division (Women and Men), and at each location, there are plenty of prizes up for grabs from Volcom, Jam Traction, Softboardcenter.com, Electric and Woodbrass, plus 1000€ prize money, that’s a 6000€ total!

How It Works
Heats are announced on @volcomhappening at starting date. Matched competitors & their filmers agree on heat location, time, duration (depending on the conditions and their schedule) during the Round's competition window (7 days extendable by Contest director if flat conditions)
HEATS ARE SURFED
Competitors and their filmers meet at their agreed upon location and time and surf their heat!
Each competitor posts what they think is their top two waves of their heat, on their Instagram feed, with heat info, contest hashtag (#vshhossegor, #vshzarautz , #vshericeira) and Insta handle @volcomhappening in the caption.
Judges score competitors waves and results are uploaded (link on @volcomhappening bio) then next round's heat match ups are announced. Next round's heat window begin immediately.
