"Good times and tons of action went down for the first edition of Volcom’s involvement with the Euskaltel La Kantera Pro!
With a solid crew consisting of Grant Taylor, CJ Collins, Omar Hassan, Alain Goikoetxea, Rune Glifberg, Robin Bolian, Vincent Matheron, Colin Provost, Caswell Berry, Axel Cruysberghs, Victor Pellegrin, Jamie Lynn, Volcoms sales rep Txufo or little rookie Marcel Cama, the Volcom team kept the vibes up and the spirits high in the pool, chairs, comentators booth, judging chair or late night in the afterparties mayhem.
This event was all about the fun, sharing the good times with the locals and the heavy lineup of competitiors. Of course, some pool annihilation went down.
For the first time, womens were invited to join the fun, and they all had a blast, with Brasilian Yndiara Asp taking the win and a sweet 4000€. In Masters, legend Nicky Guerrero show some of the younger ones how its done.
And an action packed Pro division, at only 13 years of age, young Californian CJ Collins stole the show in front of past event winners Danny Leon and Kalle Berglind and flew home with a 12000€ prize purse…
Check out the full contest results below
Thanks to everyone that joined us, to all the locals and people who worked on the event, to the city of Getxo and Euskaltel."
