Volcom was founded by Richard "Wooly" Woolcott and Tucker "T-Dawg" Hall, in 1991. The initial focus was on fashion for the skateboard and other board sports scenes. They brought on pro skateboarder Chet Thomas as their first endorsement. By 1995 they had expanded in to all sorts of other lifestyle and entertainment areas, including their own record label Volcom Entertainment.
In 2005 Volcom went public on the NASDAQ and in 2011 Kering took over the company by buying the majority of shares at a value of $608 million.
