The Newport 500 | Volcom Surf Championships

volcom4

The 2014 “Newport 500″ Totally Crustaceous Tour Championships are complete! Track conditions started out clean, but as the day rolled on things got pretty hectic. Not even high wind advisories and sand storms could slow the competitors down as they continued to put the pedal to the metal all the way to the last lap. Thanks for the good times and all the Volcom Gear

Tyler Gunter aka Instagrom is a RVCA advocate. For obvious reasons, he took home 3rd place in the grom division 10261034_762480007115592_738497249_n

One of the day’s highlights was the “Restrictor Plates” airshow where Cam Richards, Finn Mcgill and special guests Gavin Beschen, Mason Ho, Balaram Stack and Dylan Graves all competed on specialty race car boards custom shaped by Sean Slater!
