The Royal Rumble of the 2011-2012 European VQS tour went down last weekend in Hossegor. Good waves, heavy rain, chair smashing, the beach of Culs nus has seen it all!
The contest gathered all the surfers that qualified over the 2011-2012 Volcom Qualifying Series in Europe; they came from North Ireland, Canary Islands, France, UK, Spain, Portugal and even Norway to battle for the VQS title, hunt for tubes, get a shot at the 5000€ prize money and some spots and trips to the World VQS champs in Newport Beach, California.
Here is photo report of what went down during those two days of Volcomania!
Million thanks to the surfers, families who made the journey to Hossegor, to the staff and our friends and VQS support that helped us organize this contest and stoke the kids.
