Volcom’s Totally Crustaceous Tour (TCT) Mulletfish surf series is a classic event in Hossegor, celebrating its 13th edition in Les Culs Nus last weekend. It has changed quite a bit but keeps its roots stoking the kids out.
With an European tour of events to qualify directly to the global TCT Champs in California this season, some of the Portuguese, Spanish and Basque surfers made it to Hossegor, bringing an international taste to the comp.
Check out the photos for the recap of this good day down the beach, and stay tuned for a complete video highlights at the end of the tour!
Don’t miss out next stop in Lanzarote for the Lavafish Surf Series on the 29-30 of November 2014 (1000€ prize money).

With south winds and crap waves in the morning the first rounds were difficult. Justin Becret finding a corner to help him pass his first Groms round.
The future looks bright! Early morning check in
Global Champs Juniors division semifinalist Quentin Grenard is one division up this year and couldn’t pass the Round 1 at the Mulletfish, no worries, you've got 3 more stops to qualify!
The Squids division is always great to watch, from 6 year old rippers being pushed by their father to 10 year olds like Alfonso Antunes surfing on the rail, drawing perfect lines on the waves like a veteran
Noa Dupouy is the local talent in the Squids division, this small air during the finals wasn’t enough to take down Alfonso
Noa and Alfonso post Squids finals fair play after a great battle
Meanwhile, Juniors were lighting up the second podium with massive hacks such as Erwann Blouin here

Joao Moreira from Portugal throwing a bucket of water. He ended up in 2nd place in the Juniors division
Here is Lens Arancibia from Biarritz, not sure if he’s claiming or frustrated because of his last turn on this righthander, he took home the trophy in the Juniors division and 100€ cash!
Ariane Ochoa claimed the win after a Girls final with no locals.
Camilla Kemp is a powerful surfer from Portugal, she finished 3rd in the Girls division.
Skullcandy brought DJ Mike Rock to play on the beach in the afternoon, lots of prizes for the kids and organized a great party at Cafe De Paris (not pictured here)
The surf kept on getting better during the afternoon with the wind fading and the tide going down. Here is Charly Quivront taking advantage of the fun ramps, going for a bs air reverse.
Kids are always frothing around the beach games
