March 7, 2008 : – – Volcom Stone proudly presents the European VQS Championships which will take place in Anglet, on the 19-20 of April. Entitled “Slash of the Crustaceans” and centered around B-Movie Greek Mythology, all existing qualified surfers (those who won their division in any VQS event in Europe) will enter into an epic battle off the beaches of Anglet.

Who will be turned to Stone by the stare of Medusa? Will the youth withstand the Wrath of Poseidon, and his evil Kraken? One must wait and witness the mythical competition… This year the judging will be directed by Didier Piter, Volcom Europe’s Team Coach, who will lend his years of experience to ensure the best calls from the judging panel: “The list of qualified surfers is impressive! I can’t wait to see all these rippers in Anglet  at this epic showdown…bring on the Slash!!!”

Top 5 in each category and top 3 Girls will qualify to compete in the $100,000 World VQS Championships in Newport Beach, California on May 9-11, 2008. 5 Flight tickets and accommodations (5 nights) to the World VQS champs are to be won as well.
