Volcom’s Kickflip-Off Contest Rules Updated

March 23rd, 2011 by John Zanussi

By now you’ve seen and read about Santa Cruz surfer Zoltan Torkos landing surfing’s first kickflip and then read about the short bout of controversy that followed with Volcom. If you have no clue what the hell I’m talking about, then, 1) where the crap have you been 2) go read about it here and here. Good to go? Great. Since Volcom paid Zoltan the $10,000, even though he didn’t really follow all the rules, they are continuing the contest but have made a few changes, including clarifying some of the rules and upping the ante so that the prize is now $20,000.

Zoltan Torkos Lands Kickflip On A Surfboard [Updated]

March 7th, 2011 by John Zanussi

  Back in 2007, Volcom created the Volcom Stone’s $10,000 Kickflip-Off Contest. Even though there were a handful of rules and regulations, it was pretty simple: be the first surfer to successfully land a kickfilp on a wave and get it on video and you’d win $10,000. Cut to 4 years later, to last week and we’ve got ourselves a winner. See the update below. More »

Volcom 2010 Swimsuits

March 23rd, 2010 by John Zanussi

  Volcom really went all out this year creating and promoting their new Spring & Summer 2010 swimsuit line for the ladies. They even went as far as putting out a video of badass model chics riding around on motorcycles and shooting lasers at each in bikinis. With a video premise like that, Volcom could be selling anything and I’d be buying. Check out the video and photos of the new line after the jump. More »


2010 Boardshorts

February 19th, 2010 by John Zanussi

  The past few years we’ve seen a huge increase in board short technology. The main thing we look for in a pair of boardshorts is how comfortable they are and whether or not they leave you with a nasty rash after a long sesh. If you find a good pair of baggies that are comfy and don’t rash, they become the shorts you always wear in the water.  Companies have caught on to this and have been designing high tech boardshorts that prevents rashing and give more stretch for the most comfort and durability. For 2010, most of the top brands are dropping brand new designs with catchy names and funky colors. TransWorld Business put out an an issue showing all the new boardshorts on the market this year and we’ve picked out our favorites.

Jamie O’Brien Wins Volcom Pipeline Pro

February 1st, 2010 by John Zanussi

  Jamie O’Brien wins it big in epic conditions in his own backyard at the first ever Volcom Pipeline Pro. Volcom put on a five star ASP World Qualifying Series event which gave the winner (O’Brien) $16,000 and 2,000 rating points. O’Brien pounded his way through four days of competition, going up against the best of the best at Pipeline and being on top in the final day. The final consisted of Jamie O’Brien HAW (17.00), Anthony Walsh AUS (14.87), Mark Mathews AUS (14.14), and Danny Fuller HAW (12.16). Two high scores – 8.77 and 8.23 – sealed the deal for O’Brien, giving him a two wave total of 17.0 out of a maximum 20. This is O’Brien’s fifth win at Pipeline (one Pipeline Masters, one Backdoor Shootout, and three Pipeline Pros). The final was an exciting heat as in the dying seconds it was really still anyone’s win. O’Brien said in an interview, “..I started praying it was going to go flat at the end, and Mark looks at me and says, ‘I bet you’re praying it’s going flat’, and I was like, yeah!”. Growing up in Hawaii and having Pipeline as your backyard is a huge advantage, but Pipe is still one of the hardest and deadliest waves to ride. Jamie has put in his time and his dues, and no wonder this is his fifth win at Pipe. Volcom teamed up with Electric and made the event more ‘green’ by having the event held inside the Volcom house and have hardly any tents on the beach. Another cool thing they did was use metal bottles and cans instead of plastic for the environment. Volcom is stepping up and getting more involved in events now, which is pretty cool. Congrats to Volcom, with their first ever ASP event and it being held in the epic Pipe conditions. Also, congrats to Jamie’O for his monster win at the Volcom Pipeline Pro! Check out the pictures below of Jamie’O in the whole event. More »
