A Volcom sticker on the nose of your board at Pipe is like an 11-99 license plate frame on a California highway. It’s carte blanche, no holes barred, a get-out-of-jail free card for anyone who’s paid enough dues to rock it. And it’s science — symbiosis, really — Volcom gives a surfer the right to surf Pipe, Pipe gives the surfer the right to rep Volcom. Miguel Tudela is an ambassador of Volcom, but something tells us he’d still have clout at Pipe, even without the black and white diamond. Regardless, dude will still get a speeding ticket if he rides like this in California.
