A Candid Photo Journal: Puerto Rico W/ Noa, Yago, Droid, Mauro

Puerto Rico has been an increasingly popular destination for surfers around the world ever since the 1968 World Surfing Championships were held there, and for good reason. Along with the hundreds of reefs, points and tropical beaches, favorable winds to the north, and crystalline blue water, its diverse natural scenery and renowned traditional cuisines make this Caribbean island a favorite among many. As a surfer, you're focusing most on the waves. But what other advantages does Puerto Rico have? Crowds? Those are ubiquitous these days, so we can throw that out. Hazards? There are always a couple. But when you go down the list of notable spots, from Parking Lots to Maria's to Los Tubos to Middles to Aviones (the list goes on), you're sure to score some waves any season you visit. Right? Wrong. Maybe that's right, but not for Noa DeaneYago DoraAndrew Doheny, and Mauro Diaz. Noa, Yago, and Andrew recently travelled to Puerto Rico to meet up with Mauro (who lives in PR) and Richie Olivares (Volcom's Global Surf Team Manager) to try and score some clips for a new edit. After driving around a ton searching for waves, taking a mini jet to a neighboring island, and returning to the same fruitless conditions, the boys needed to shift their focus. And they did. When you have a diverse group like this, you are never bored. From Noa's 'welcome to the team' surprise, to the sharpie incidents, to the Pelican Man, there was no shortage of memorable times. See below for a Q&A from the guys, along with a selection of behind-the-scenes and lifestyle film photos from photographers Tom Carey and Scott Stinnett.

WEIRD?
Meeting the Pelican Man, who literally could talk to the pelicans and tell them what to do, seriously. I guess he was featured on the National Geographic cover once. He would rescue wounded pelicans and by the time we met him he had a full flock under his wing.

CREW?
Droid and Noa were inseparable the whole trip, constantly making music, writing songs, playing guitar. While Yago would just quietly eat his candy and then boost eight foot airs. Mauro was just soaking it all in and was stoked to be there.

FOOD?
Meal of the trip was Pinchos? Peenchos? I dunno how to spell or pronounce it, but it's basically sketchy 'chicken' on a stick and sold on the side of the road.

DRINK?
Drink of the trip was Pina Coladas! So many Pina Coladas.

FAVORITE?
Favorite moment of the trip was when everyone conspired to welcome Noa to the team by smashing a pie in his face. So while Noa, unknowingly, jammed out on his guitar, Yago snuck up behind him with a pie and smashed it in his face! I think Richie yelled "welcome to the team, grom!" and then Noa smeared more of it all over his face and started chugging whip cream while everyone cheered. It was great.

SHARPIE?
If you fell asleep early enough, Noa and Droid would hunt you down with a sharpie and vandalize your face. I think Nate Leal got the worst of it.

SURF?
It was full moon when we were in Tortola and the main spot we surfed the whole trip was in front of a shanty bar called Bombas, which was literally held together by string and beach wood and halfway underwater already. It looked like a big enough wave would knock the whole thing down. They had a legendary party on the night of the full moon and they were serving some beverages that made us hallucinate. It was wild!

YAGO DORA MENTAWAIS 2017
The name Yago Dora should be starting to sound familiar. After his tear at the Oi Rio Pro in May, he's gained a lot of well-deserved attention from the surfing world and through WSL where he was awarded a Wild Card into the Outerknown Fiji Pro, a prestigious World Tour stop which gave him the chance to showcase his talents on the big stage. In addition, with his recent win at the Azores Airlines Pro, a 6,000-rated QS event, Brazilian Yago Dora continues to move one step closer to qualifying for the elite 2018 Championship Tour. But free surfing might be what Yago is known for best. Constantly impressing his fans with new edits, Yago displays a high-flying and innovative bag of tricks. Huge air rotations, creative grabs, and over-the-lip surfing, complemented with a strong rail game, shows that Yago's agile and light-footed surfing can go head-to-head with the world's best. This edit is a great balance of Yago's surfing: innovation airs, lightening-quick turns, and intense, shallow reef tubes will keep your eyes glued to the screen from start to finish. This trip for Yago was special. Not just because of the epic waves he scored, but because he had a solid crew of family and friends with him. Yago explains: "IT WAS A FAMILY VIBE KIND OF TRIP. I HAD MY DAD, LEANDRO DORA, PEDRO BARROS AND HIS DAD ANDRÉ, AND LÉO KAKINHO WHO IS ALSO A VERY GOOD FRIEND OF OURS AND A LEGEND IN THE SKATEBOARDING SCENE IN BRAZIL." The trip consisted of nine days on the Macaronis Resort with his friends and family, a comfortable and popular resort for surfers from around the world. Scoring the elusive Green Bush for his very first time, Yago was ecstatic, bagging multiple tubes and some heavy wipeouts along the way. While having had fun sessions at both Macas and Roxies, Yago was quick to say Green Bush was his favorite spot. Watch the edit above to see all the action! Keep up with Yago's latest happenings on his Instagram: @yagodora as he continues his quest for the Championship Tour. Photo: Tom Carey

Interview With Alec Majerus On Cancel History
About a month or so ago we had an idea to have a skateboarder, surfer and snowboarder do all 3 board sports in the same day to celebrate the release of our Cancel History collection. Southern California is one of the few places where we could actually pull this off, so we enlisted skateboarders Alec Majerus, Omar Hassan, legendary snowboarder Jamie Lynn and surfer Noa Deane to hit the slopes of Mt. High, waves of Newport Beach and our very own skatepark here at Volcom HQ. Outfitted in original Volcom tee designs from the 90's it was just like the old days, 20 plus years later, but the vibe and true Volcom spirit was still the same. Snowboarding, surfing and skateboarding in the same day is no easy task, so we decided to have a brief chat with Alec Majerus, who he was actually snowboarding up in Big Sky, Montana with his family, to get his take on the day. Hey Alec, how is it going what you been up to? Good man, just been skating and snowboarding a lot lately. We know your rip on a skateboard, but how long have you been snowboarding and surfing? I've been snowboarding since I was like 8. I've only surfed a few times though Alec spraying powder at Mt. High I heard you and your friends were psyched on snowboarding, surfing and skating in the same day, have you ever tried to do that before? Nah I haven't done that before. It's always been a goal of mine. What was the hardest part? The snowboarding, surfing or skating? The surfing was so hard because the waves were pretty big and I was getting smoked Noa Deane and Alec getting ready to surf.   How much did you snowboard back home in Minnesota? I used to do a lot of backyard snowboarding growing up because I couldn't skate. A lot of people say snowboarding and skateboarding are very similar but still different, what are your thoughts? Do you find snowboarding easier since you rip so hard on a skateboard? Yea I think if you can skate you can easily learn to snowboard and vice versa You’ve skated some pretty monster rails but have you ever hit one on a snowboard? Yea I lipslid and 5050 on a 16 when I was younger Noa, Alec and Omar post surf sesh I remember you were living in a studio apartment in Huntington Beach with all your Minnesota homies for a minute. Did you ever surf when you were living by the beach?  Nah, I didn't surf until I moved to Costa Mesa. Wish I would have took advantage of that though! Between the dudes you did this epic day with, Jamie Lynne, Noa Deane and Omar Hassan, who were you more impressed with as far watching them do a board sport they’re not known for? Noa said he had never snowboarded before and we took him to the top and he did it without falling. I was tripping on that. After snowboarding and surfing Alec still had enough fuel in the tank to pop off the walls.
