We interrupt this interview with Andrew Doheny…
"Mom! I'm on the phone!" Doheny exclaimed.
Doheny is a pro surfer, a world traveler and a sponsor's dream. But he's also just 18, so when he's not tearing it up in Indonesia, or Australia, or wherever, he's hanging out at home with his parents in Newport Beach.
He is coming off a victory last weekend in the 2011 VQS Championships at 54th Street in Newport, the culmination of Volcom's Totally Crustaceous Tour that included separate qualifiers in California, Hawaii, Texas, the East Coast, Puerto Rico, Canada and other international surf spots.
Doheny captured the top prize in the pro-am division, taking home a Muscle Milk Harley-Davidson motorcycle and a cool $10,000. The victory also earned him a wild-card entry into the 2012 Volcom Pipe Pro at Hawaii's Banzai Pipeline.
"I don't ride [motorcycles]," Doheny said. "I probably won't ride it. I'm too scared. I'll probably sell it."
