Post Heat Interviews – Day 2 US Open Of Surfing Huntington Beach

The US Open of Surfing has landed in Huntington Beach, CA, and the waves are firing! The Volcom crew, including Team Manager and Coach, Matt "Bemmy" Bemrose, has been down on the beach every day watching our team riders surf their way through heats and rooting them on from the stands. Yesterday, we sat down with Bemmy to get some insight on what it takes to work with some of the world's top female surfers, differences between coaching women's surfing vs. men's surfing, and more. With Maud Le Car's big win yesterday against 6x World Champ, Stephanie Gilmore, and Coco Ho advancing to the quarterfinals (beating current World Champ, Tyler Wright), it's safe say Bemmy's on a good roll!

How long have you been with Volcom
I started surfing for Volcom when I was 17, then started working for Volcom full-time at 28. I’m 39 now, so about 23 years haha!

When did you start working with Coco Ho and Maud Le Car?
The first trip I did with Coco was in 2007 to Fiji. I wasn’t working directly with her then, but earmarked her as a future star. Actually, working directly with Coco, that began in 2012. Working with Maud has been on and off over the last two years, but if I get an opportunity to work with her at an event I’m all over it.

Who was the first female surfer to ever impress you?
Lisa Anderson. She really brought style into women's surfing.

Is there a different approach you take when working with female surfers? 
A little more attention to detail. Things like: where to paddle out, setting lineups, holding priority, etc. More technical things, but women's surfing has come a long way and I've been really impressed with how Coco and Maud have handled the pressure of competition in and out of the water.

Coco Ho

How do you recognize a potential star athlete and what are some signs of a true competitor?
A never-give-up attitude is the biggest telltale sign. Also, a true competitor shows signs of composure under pressure at an early age.

Coco Ho mentally preparing before her heat.

Outside competition, what are some signs of true surf talent vs. what can be taught in the water?
A willingness to think outside the box and apply new maneuvers to your repertoire in a short amount of time shows true surf talent.

How much of your job is life coach vs. surf coach?
50/50 for sure. Probably more life coach though haha!

Maud Le Car greeted by boyfriend, Joan Duru, after her win against Steph.

The US Open is a mad house full of people, competitors, fans, and brands to name a few. What can an event like this do for an up-and-coming surfer?
Compete well and it can make you. For Maud, I guarantee this heat win against Steph Gilmore is the biggest confidence boost she’s ever had. With confidence comes self-belief. That’s all someone needs to take their surfing to the next level. Coco Ho has made her name on the scene and has done well at the US Open in past years, and she's just getting fired up!

Maud Le Car qualified for this event through the trials, only to take out 6x World Champ Steph Gilmore in her Round 2 heat. How does that happen? What does it take, and do you think she'll be taking down bigger names in the future?
What Maud just accomplished was outstanding. Beating one of the best female surfers ever in a CT event as a wildcard is hard to describe. It’s totally amazing in saying that Maud had the ability and firepower to beat Steph. We spoke all day long before her heat and worked out a tight heat strategy. We had Maud focus on her strengths with the mindset that any heat would be hers to win. When she matched up with Steph, it was business as usual. We spoke about controlling the heat from the start and sticking to her game plan, and that's exactly what she did. This win is life-changing and now Maud knows she has what it takes to mix it with the very best in the world.

"ALIENS WAS HERE" FT. NOA DEANE, OZZIE WRIGHT, BALARAM STACK, MITCH COLEBORN, RYAN BURCH
ALIENS WAS HERE IS A VEECO PRODUCTION STARRING THE ELITE VOLCOM SURF TEAM. WE SETTLED IN BALI FOR FIVE WEEKS AND THE BOYS ENCOUNTERED MORE THAN JUST ALIENS! This is a true story based around the Volcom surf team's exploration to Indonesia. We rented a house in Bali, Indonesia and invited every team rider from all over the globe. The plan? Well, there was no plan. We settled in a luxurious villa in Canngu for five weeks and the boys encountered more than they bargained for. From our top lords scoring a secret slab to our alienated youth shifting heads, this film will leave you with a fine dosage of yet another Volcom classic! STARRING: Ozzie Wrong Noa Deane Mitch Coleborn Balaram Stack Ryan Burch Andrew Doheny Nate Tyler FEATURING: Nate Tyler, Mauro Diaz, Pat Schmidt, Miguel Tudela, Leon Glatzer, Gony Zubizarreta, Harry Timson, William Aliotti, Guy Sato, Shun Murakami, Muklis Anwar, Hayden Rodgers, Nolan Rodgers, Hagan Johnson, Cole Sandman, Santiago Hart, Kobi Clements, Jarvis Earle, Keanu Taylor DIRECTED by Jimmy "Jazz" James PRODUCED by Richie Olivares, Tom Carey, Brad Dougherty, Matt Bemrose  FILMED by Jimmy "Jazz" James, Nate Leal, Scott Stinnett, Matt Tromberg, Tom Carey ART by Ozzie Wright A HAZY RECOLLECTION OF STRANGE ENCOUNTERS DOCUMENTED BY RICHIE OLIVARES: Ozzie was on a painting craze in Bali. He was tagging "Aliens Was Here" all over town. He even painted his face for each surf and I think it scared everyone off in the line up, which resulted in heaps of waves! Ozzie Wrong transforming Uluwatu's racetrack into Planet Zorb. RICHIE OLIVARES: "Believe it or not, but this car was a rental! I think it gave us good luck and it became a wave magnet. We had to pay for the car to be repainted when we gave it back, but it was totally worth it. Many would say that it upped the value of the car." OBLIVION STONEYS BOARDSHORTS - GET YOURS HERE Spotted the first extraterrestrial of the trip. "It was the first time I'd ever seen an elephant in person and it was insane. The Zoo keeper loved rock n' roll!" -Mauro Mauro Diaz MACAW MOD BOARDSHORTS ANDREW DOHENY: "I never thought I'd ever get that close to an elephant! It was like a CGI or something." Andrew "Droid" Doheny with a quick cutty, feeling loose like he's back home surfing 5-4. William Aliotti is a sneaky little Frenchman who loves to get barreled and have a good time. He spent two months in Bali this year and by the looks of that smile you can tell he had an excellent time! Frenchman William Aliotti joined the rest of the aliens and scored big time. MAG VIBES STONEYS BOARDSHORTS GONY ZUBIZARRETA: "I forgot my travel bag in Lisbon airport at the x-ray machine just before flying to Bali, so I had to borrow shorts and shirts from William, Leon and Miguel (thanks boyz). We had to divide the group and the goofy footers went to Java, so we went to Yoyo's! I really enjoyed the trip to Sumbawa with Droid, Mauro and Pat. The guys were ripping! It was impressive to see the talent and clean surfing of Mauro, the crazy different approach of Droid on every wave riding weird boards, and the power and pop of Pat, especially on his twin fin." "BASICALLY, WE JUST SURFED OUR BRAINS OUT FOR A WEEK AND THEN HAD A LITTLE GOODBYE PARTY IN CANGGU TO FINISH THE TRIP THE BEST WAY POSSIBLE." -GONY Gony Zubizarreta dropped a couple wallets, but was able to pick them up shortly after. The little car that could. Ozzie face-painted the entire trip. Every night consisted of listening to Distractor over and over, Bintangs, and art tutorial with Ozzie. It was like a big kid sleepover! NO VACANCY STONEYS BOARDSHORTS Nate Leal's nickname is Snake Eal and this photo should further explain how he landed a nickname like that. It’s the only way to drink your morning mud - with your mug on your mug. Mitch Coleborn, evening light in Indonesia. WE WENT FROM SHARING SLEEPING PADS IN A DIRTY SMALL VILLA TO A 5 STAR RESORT WITH SERVANTS ALL AROUND US, IT WAS WILD! You would think this baby broke down frequent, but I swear this was the only time we had to push her! This car was a beast! Ryan Burch on a self-shaped, unidentified surfboard. "IT WAS AWESOME TO BE ON A TRIP WITH A COUPLE OF GUYS THAT I'VE GROWN UP WATCHING IN OLD VOLCOM VIDEOS. WE SCORED SO FUCKING HARD, I COULDN'T BELIEVE HOW BARRELED EVERYONE GOT!" -BALARAM   We had a solid group of our top groms crash our Aliens party and they were tripping! From the Hayden brothers to Cole Sandman to Keanu Taylor, each grom was upping the ante every day which produced a solid mix of oustanding surfing from the youngsters. Take a sneak peek below:

LONGO, HAAKONSEN AND FRIENDS IN OLIVIER GITTLER’S INTROSPECTION
OLIVIER IS A MAN OF MANY TALENTS. AT RIDING HIS SNOWBOARD, FILMING, EDITING, MAKING MUSIC, OR CELEBRATING LIFE, HE CONSTANTLY EXCELS. Oh, Oli's also the reigning Quarter Pipe World Champion, although he'll never admit to it. It’s no secret that a 30-second Instagram clip is usually a condensed version of a week-long trip around the world to document a specific goal. Whether it's a trick for a video part, a photo for the mags, field testing product, or any other reason to chase a winter storm. But, what about all the shenanigans in between? From airplanes to rental cars, hotel rooms to summits, and everything in between, sometimes the moments that define these trips are caught in-between takes. Volcom ambassador Olivier Gittler, with his strong appreciation for behind-the-scenes footage, put together this unique look at a season untold with Arthur Longo, Terje Haakonsen and friends.  "IT’S WHAT WE LOVE TO DO. ALL THE THINGS THAT HAPPEN WHEN WE TRAVEL FOR SNOWBOARDING. THE SPONTANEOUS PART OF TRAVELING AROUND THAT NO ONE ELSE SEES." – OLIVIER GITTLER Oli double exposure photo by Adailton Oli Mike and Jeff shot by Vernon Deck Oli Mike and Jeff shot by Vernon Deck music recording setup iphone Oli and Arthur iphone Oli close up shot by Arthur Oli forest iphone Oli Mt Blanc iphone Oli photo by Adailton Oli setup iphone Oli shot by Longo - Crater Lake Super 8 Paulina Lake iphone
