What do you love most about being a pro surfer, and what's the toughest part?
The thing I love the most being a surfer pro is the lucky opportunity to live my passion and to travel in the all world and to discover countries, amazing waves and landscapes while spending my days in the water. I always wanted to be a pro surfer and I work so hard for it so I am proud today to be living my dreams. Being a pro surfer means making a lot of sacrifices like living far from my family and friends and focusing all the time on my goals.

How do you mentally prepare yourself for a contest?
I think it is most important to always do always your best, put all the chance on your side to succeed and to not have any regrets. I look at contests as a game; playing on the waves and trying to improve myself and my surfing in any kind of situation because surfing is my passion and something I love to do.

How do you describe your surfing style?
I think my surfing style is radical and engaged - sometimes a little bit aggressive.

What do you like to do during your down time (when you're not surfing)?
My second passion is art - I love to paint, spray and draw. I am painting a lot on surfboards, canvas's or skateboards recently to vary my creativity. I also did my first art show this summer!

How long have you been on the women's tour and how enjoyable is it?
I have been on the women's tour for three years and it sincerely get's better every year. Sometimes the contests make me nervous but i still have fun because surfing is something I love to do.

What's more inspiring to you at this moment, love and happiness or money and fame?
For sure love and happiness.

What charities are you involved in?
I am involved in Keep A Breast (Association against breast cancer). I recently painted a bust that is going to be sold to raise money for the association. In the future I would love to have my own association for the protection of the environment and the ocean.

Is there any place in the world you have not yet surfed but have always wanted to?
Mentawaii!!!

What's the secret to your fit body?
Eat raw and fresh food and always keep my body in action... have fun do sports.

Fancy restaurant or local night club?
Local night club!

What makes Volcom Women's so unique?
We are rocking!!! We are able to be natural and be completely ourself without complex

What do you wan the girls out there reading to never forget?
To believe in your own dream and never give up. You girls are all special and amazing so go big, have fun and be happy !

Maud Le Car X Elle Green
Super combo: artsy French Volcom Surfer Maud Le Car and the genius behind the camera lens, Ambassador Elle Green. No strangers to each other as they had already met up here in Australia a couple times to snap some lifestyle shots. Now however it was Volcom Europe that had the pleasure of Elle on their home turf, in their backyard in Les Landes, on the coast of Southwest France. Elle or @hellgreen as we all know her on instagram, was actually visiting Europe with her sister and as we always try to think of reasons to catch up, we set up this little shoot for one of our all time favorite papers, Surf Girl magazine. Wanting to showcase both our spring and summer lines, we ended up just fooling around on the beach, as the surf was flat. We headed out to the little town of Labenne where Maud knew we could found this beautiful abandoned church right on top of the dunes. After that, a good lunch and heavy tummy’s we couldn’t help but wrap up the day in our friends pool with some proper canon balls. The behind the scenes clip says it all. We love our global Volcom family! The wonderful and eclectic mix of surfers, artist, photographers, musicians, skaters, snowboarders… you name it. All fantastic individuals and the cream of their crop. Follow the girls at: @hellgreen @maudlecar
