Hello. My name is Andrew Doheny, some people call me Droid. I would best describe my hometown as fun because ever since I was young 54 rules and there's always been chicks. I've traveled quite a bit, but by far the best place I've been is Indo, because of the tubes. But, by far most worse trip ever was to Brazil, because it didn't go as planned. I've come close, but I haven’t yet gone all the way with a chick. I can't stand when I see someone from Riverside try to own Newps because it makes them look like kooks. If I was stranded on an island with only 3 items, I would have a hot chick, magic board, and and nice bungalo. The last time my phone rang it was from Dave Post and I we talked about riding the ski tomorrow. On small waves, I like to try new moves, but when it's big I say outside!. The most important thing to remember about surfing is have fun. For the next few months, I really want to travel, surf and get better.

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 Deane, Yago Dora, Andrew 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!   BELOW PHOTOS: TOM CAREY CAMERA: CANON AF35M & DISPOSABLE Cheers, mon! Yago, Noa, and Droid taking down some Red Stripes pre-flight. Beer of choice for El Caribe. Droid loves to sleep. Is he sleeping here? Here's Noa wondering the same thing. Small planes are convenient (and sketchy) when you need to jump from island-to-island to search for waves. Grid-locked! You can bet on Yago to always be prepared for a surf. We also discovered he always has extra fin keys. Good man to bring on a trip! Tradewinds in Puerto Rico can sometimes make for chilly weather. But Tradewinds or not, sunny or cloudy, Noa is always rockin' his favourite jeans. Mauro Dora and Yago Diaz?! Surf trips sound so fun, right? Especially to places far from home, and they are. But, people forget it's full of multiple airports, long car rides, lack of sleep, and sometimes getting skunked on waves. Here's Droid at the culmination of it all. Noa trying to make the car rides a little more entertaining for the group. After flying-high all week, Yago indulges on a couple glasses of vino on his last night of the trip. Nate Leal and Scott Stinnett (background left & right), are the go-to filmers for the Volcom Surf Team. These dudes are always on it! What we can take away from this photo is that more sunscreen was needed! Yago channeling some Tony Alva? Scott Stinnett. Cops are always on the lookout. "Yeah, it's a bit windy, but..." Sleeper boy. Noa knocked out from rocking too hard and drinking too much water. Droid's bringing back the classic Black Fly's look. Y'all been to Pusser's? Phone rings... "It's Ozzie! Oh, snap, my rent's due!" House view. Droid sometimes sleeps with his eyes open. It's creepy, but pretty funny! Yes, airports are full of freaks! The name of this airplane is quite accurate. Whatever you do, don't look down! Scared, psyched, confused, or all the above? Touchdown! This place ruled. Yago always packing the late night snacks. This dude loves chocolate. Droid rockin' the Mag Vibes Stoneys and Yago rockin' the Macaw Mods! Mauro Diaz is always Gozando! (Having a good time.) Noa greeting the Shark's Cove of the Caribbean! Why did we have a fart machine? Who knows. But when you play this thing through a mini amp, it will have you in tears. This literally went on for a couple hours... Nate, bummed his phone broke and couldn't Tinder. The pie in the face wasn't enough, and Noa wanted more! Noa making Richie and Droid some tasty treats. Egg in hole? Egg in basket? Whatever it was, it ruled. Noa loves to prank people, and here is proof! So, don't fall asleep before him. Looks like Tom Carey didn't get the message. Checking emails? On Instagram? Whatever, it's too late for photos. Noa's first boards with the Stone! Yes, Droid sleeps with his guitar, day and night. BELOW PHOTOS: SCOTT STINNETT CAMERAS: YASHICA T4 AND WIDELUX Boarding the mini jet. Yago's candy stash. Airport lobby jam sash with Droid and Noa. Maybe just Droid. Droid, zorched. Beers and champagne. Why not?! Seriously lost! Tom Carey trying to figure out where they are while Noa sleeps one off.   Mind surfing. We did that a lot due to the lacking of waves. Few spots had potential, and we found some fun waves, but not a ton. Everyone wants a photo with Droid. Mauro Diaz. Checking this spot called Middles, which had a couple waves on offer. Yago Dora.   This is Tortola. And it's an amazing place to visit. Free samples of Pina Coladas on the house! Noa and Droid. This was the last night in Puerto Rico. Full crew! These rocks were super sharp, but made for some cool, Mars-lookin' landscape. Droid and Noa taking in the amazing view we had. What a way to wake up. Droid.   Yago, the pelican whisperer. OK, Noa is a pelican whisperer, too. Yago, Noa, Droid, trying to write some songs in the lobby. You can see Droid here has taken a new approach to the word "downtime." Downtime again with Droid. Cool path we found to some waves! Droid resting his eyes. Droid jam session.   Droid sleep session.   Yago with somewhat of a swan dive.   Noa and Droid hanging out on the porch of our spot. The Pelican Man hooked us up with some free lessons on how to care for them and feed them. It was actually pretty cool, and Noa and Yago turned out to be experts at the trade. Sincerely, yours truly. So sick. Found a dude who was driving this and asked if we could take some pictures with it. He was stoked, and more than willing to let us do it. Thanks, man, this is rad!   Noa mid-jump, or fall, or step-off, or whatever. Not a very enthusiastic jump, but we'll take it! Buddies. Noa and Yago enjoying the Caribbean. Cool angle of Yago floating in the sea. Yago. Mauro showing us some spots. Room with a view! Yago.   See you, dudes, next time!

Watch Metal Neck 2 The Bangover + World Premiere Photo Recap!
Metal Neck 2 The Bangover is a total head shift! What's a Metal Neck? According to Andrew Doheny, “Metal Neck occurs when a person's head bangs so hard that your neck seizes up.” Whether or not you head bang that hard, this movie is guaranteed to make you try. You also might think this movie isn't your typical pre-surf warmup motivator, and you're absolutely right. It’s fresh, off its rocker, and we love it! Nobody is having as much fun as these guys, right?! Produced by Mr. Andrew “Droid” Doheny and Matt Tromberg, and featuring the debut of Volcom Little Buddy Cole Sandman, creative wizard Ozzie Wright, and Droid with a bunch of his rowdy friends. Oh, and let’s not forget their mascot, “Metal Jimmy.” Check it out above! The world premiere of the movie went down at Volcom HQ on July 28 to a packed house full of Metal Neckers, industry rats, locals, and more. Below is a taste of the chaos!

Costa Rica's Gold - Surf Team Goes South!
Brand-new styles and colour-ways available now: Shop Boardshorts So we took a trip to Costa Rica to shoot our all-new Fall boardshorts & swimwear collections, and instead of ending the story right now with "and the rest is history," we'd like to give you a little insight into our majestic journey to the rugged Central American country. Enter Balaram Stack, Coco Ho, Nate Tyler, Maud Le Car, Ryan Burch, Quincy Davis, and Andrew "Droid" Doheny. Picture a desolate rainforest and narrow unstructured dirt roads echoed by a variety of bird chips and animal calls only to be triumphed by thoughts racing through your head of "where's the beach and how fast can we get there." 3,400+ miles from the nearest home in California, obvious transplants (no help from Balaram & Droid's bleached hair), and a crew full of expensive surfboards and camera equipment is your scene. photos by Tom Carey Quickly finding the way to our newly-found two-week home w/ an epic pool inside a quaint little village, we linked up with local legend Tony Roberts who is a mastermind that paved the way for the community down here by designing skateparks and running various surf tours. After ripping through some fun spots inside the village, and getting weird in the neighboring jungle, we hopped on a friend's boat and made our voyage to the famous Witch's Rock. For any surfer, Witch's is a bucket list mission and our journey there was one for the books! Witch's Rock Our goal was to shoot the team in our new boardshorts and swimwear collections, get some rad action shots, explore the land, and simply have a good time on this journey through a quest for spiritual intoxication. And we got that. But we got more, a lot more. Take a ride with us through a captivating feel-good photo book from our Costa Rican adventure: Droid: pro surfer, pro model.
