The Karramarrofish Surf Series went down this past weekend in Anglet, France, with some fine surf conditions and a little taste of summer weather. It was the last event of the European leg of Volcom’s Totally Crustaceous Tour 14-15 (TCT). A lot of surfers signed up from all over Europe, to get a last chance to qualify for the World TCT Championships in California. The battle was fierce in the ever-changing conditions of the South West of France, and the drama levels were high, adding extra flavor to this contest.

Check out the photo recap below for a detailed story of what went down during those 2 days! Contest results are below together with the list of surfers who get a flight ticket + accommodation to the World Totally Crustaceous Tour Championships in California (Newport Beach and Lower Trestles).
Thanks a lot to everyone who made it to this contest and everyone that helped organize it: Mairie d'Anglet, Anglet Surf Club, Skull Candy, Hoff and BubbleGum wax, Rico for the food and high times, the judges, Alex Lesbats for the photos and all our staff.
Marco Mignot won in the Groms division with moves like this one, getting a plane ticket to California in June.
Iker Imatrian got stopped in the groms semis but showed some very mature surfing throughout the entire event
On top of sick prizes for all finalists, Skullcandy lent some bean bags and longchairs for some extra relaxation in between heats
Guilherme Moreira was in fine form all event long and finished in second place in the Groms division in a high disputed final.
Lavafish Surf Series winner Lenni Jensen made the trip all the way from the Canary Islands but also got stopped in the Groms semis, but not without displaying his smooth carves.
In the Juniors division, the level was also high, with surfers from all around Europe shredding the bowls on offer. Adrian Fernandez de Valderrama shows you how to go vertical
It’s always good to include a slip and slide in a race for extra prizes
Tessa Tyssen and Neis Lartigue
Neis Lartigue was flaring into the 2nd place of the Girls finals
Tessa Tysssen won the Girls division with solid turns like these. Girls were going for it and weren’t scared of getting smashed in the shorebreak.
Surfer in green racing for an exit, offshore winds helped the sections to stay open but also can get you in some fun late-drop situations.
Charly Quivront was in fine form but lost in the Pro Am semi finals
In his Pro Am semis, Diego Mignot comboed everyone with two big airs
Groms and Squids were frothing on the beach both days with extra grinds, games, loads of whip cream and flour…
Imanol Yeregui got 3rd in the Pro Am division, you see him here on a backside floater on a meaty section
Volcom TCT « veteran » Aldric God was also on a rampage all event, he broke his board on this manoeuver and was back out in no time to pass to the next round
God is rocking a Volcom sticker? His friend and Volcom team rider Paul Monborne lent him his board as he didn’t have a spare one after breaking his stick.
Unfortunately Diego Mignot tweaked his knee trying to land this air in the Pro Am finals, we wish you a quick recovery
Thomas Delplace searching for some shadow, he surfed like 20 waves in this heat..
Paul Cesar Distinguin is a well rounded surfer and was taking advantage of both outside grinders and inside bowls during his heats, he won the Pro Am division and a sweet 500€ in cash, find PC on tinder and give him some props!
