Volcom’s Totally Crustaceous Tour is a grass roots effort that has infiltrated local and regional areas with FREE surfing contests, and part of Volcom’s LET THE KIDS RIDE FREE program. These events are for the kids of all the ages to ex- press 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 TCT 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.

Everyone competes without having to pay an entry fee and all contestants receive prizes and giveaways... plus a FREE lunch!

The Totally Crustaceous Tour is a worldwide free contest series that spreads through America, Hawaii, Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Japan, Europe and Brazil. 11 European surfers qualify and win trips to compete in the 2015 TCT Global Championships in Newport Beach and Lower Trestles, California, on June 13-14 and June 22-23  (USD $25 000 prize money and live webcast!).
