Last week we launched the “Who is Maud” film post featuring our new Volcom European addition Maud Le Car. Maud finished her Pro Junior season with another solid 2nd place win to go with her 2nd place in the European Women’s title for 2012! See the highlights from it here, and from her WAHRLD Pro Junior Title win in A Coruña, Galicia, Spain here.
This week we’re taking you behind the lens of the shoot we did with her in the Hossegor, France. Enjoy!
