Volcom’s VQS Surf Tour is a grass roots effort that has infiltrated local and regional areas with FREE surfing contests. These events are for the kids of all the ages to express their talent, gain contest experience, have a good time, get some FREE grinds, and walk home with a ton of FREE product for a day of surfing.
The purpose of the VQS European Tour is to create a unique surfing environment, not a typical contest, but more like gathering. It is where people can come together and hang out, without all the fees, rules, stipulation and a lack of camaraderie of a normal surfing event. These events are about giving back to the communities and making it possible for kids without sponsors or money to compete along with some seasoned competitors. Surfers of all ages are able to express their talent at a local, national, and international level and will push the next generation to become something better than the last.
