The Totally Crustaceous Tour (TCT) Global Championships will be run at Lower Trestles, in California, between 22nd-23rd June, 2015.

The 15th annual event put up by Volcom will culminate at the world-class peak in conjunction with the Surfing America USA Championships.

Young up-and-coming surfers from around the world will have the opportunity to to surf an empty and coveted line-up with $25,000 in cash and prizes.

"This wave has a deep-rooted history of memorable surfing events and we are excited for the youth of the TCT to converge at one of the most rippable waves on earth for a shot at the 2015 TCT Global Championship title," says Brad Dougherty, vice president of Volcom Surf.

The Volcom TCT began as a fun, free and sometimes raucous event for the kids dating back to the mid-90s. Gabriel Medina, Nat Young, Kolohe Andino, Josh Kerr and Dusty Payne have already competed here.

This season, 250 surfers have qualified through regional tour stops, and international qualifiers including Brazil, Australia, Latin America, Japan, New Zealand, Europe, USA, Indonesia, South Africa, and Puerto Rico.
