Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 13 November, 2015 - Young Australian surfers keen to start making waves in the surf arena will be given the opportunity to do so when the Volcom Totally Crustaceous Tour (TCT) kicks off in February 2016.
The National tour starts with four qualifying events, with Victoria being first cab off the rank, before Western Australia, New South Wales and Queensland show the tour what young talent they’ve got on offer.
The top four competitors from each qualifying event will then go on to contest the National Final in Narrabeen, NSW where winners from each division will be crowned, and in-turn will become eligible to compete at a huge World Final at the famous Lower Trestles break in California next June - with a whopping prize purse of $30,000 USD.
Specifically designed for the best female and male talent to showcase their fresh, freakish and fearless skills in the water, the world-wide series aims to give talented youth the opportunity to gain competition experience and have fun whilst doing so.
Volcom’s philosophy of creating a unique and highly inclusive environment that celebrates ‘having a go’ will shine through in this series according to their International Team Manager, Matt Bemrose.
“The TCT tour really puts the fun back into competitive surfing, from your top level pro to your ‘little buddy’ just starting out there is something for everyone. With the inclusion of the winner traveling to the US to compete in one of the best waves on the planet, Trestles, it’s hard not to get excited about the upcoming series, “he said.
The series is proudly sponsored by Volcom, Vans, Electric and Futures Fins.
Entries will open at 5pm (AEDST) on Monday November 23rd via https://www.surfingaustralia.com/event_series/16
