Last week we loaded up the van and headed to Clisson, France for the tenth edition of the Hellfest festival. Axel Cruysberghs, Dustin Dollin, Harry Lintell and Victor Pellegrin jumped in; we checked set times and put the pedal to the metal to make sure we could not only get our shred on the ramp setup but also enjoy shows from the likes of Black Sabbath, Melvins, Napalm Death, King Diamond, Sunn O))) and of course our friends from Gojira, The Shrine and Kveletrak. Heres a little clip of some of what went down. Roll on Hellfest 2017! Here we go! Axel Cruysberghs - Frontside Flip Insane Clown. No Possee Axel Cruysberghs and Victor Pellegrin. Bros.

Our winners, Judit and Rubén from Barcelona flew all the way to sunny California to spend the day with the band, GroupLove! We started our day early and toured around Los Angeles visiting famous monuments, record labels and lookout points. We then headed to Hyperion Public in Silverlake where we met up with the band. The winners were stoked out of their minds to meet them for the first time. After lunch, we hit the bowling lanes and enjoyed a few games at the arcade in Korea Town. We couldn't end the night without some kind of singing element, so we jetted downstairs to the Karaoke Room. Everyone jammed out to Kanye West, Aerosmith and Spice Girls to name a few. The winners were so stoked and grateful for this experience and wanted me to extend a big thank you to the Volcom Team!!

We’ve been asked to be part of one of the teams to skate the demos at the Cross Da Cruz at Hellfest last summer. Easy decision if you ask me but we just had to find team-riders available in this busy time of the summer. Euro-rider Harry Lintell, french family-riders Victor Pellegrin and Vincent Coupeau where are guys to jump in the van directions to the gates of hell. Enjoy this edit make by @yvesmarchon and photos taken by Vincent Coupeau @mfvins666

This past Saturday Dustin Dollin, Ben Raemers, Harry Lintell, Eniz Fazliov and Lois Pendlebury spent some time in the UK at Visions Festival – a Real Life Happening spread across several venues in Hackney, London. Following on from two critically acclaimed and sold out years, the festival hosted a whole range of happenings from the East London Print Makers screening onto our shirts to the Fat White Family band, The Hinds and more playing killer shows in this third year sold out event making the whole thing a blast from start to finish. Volcom also took along our two prize winners who hung out with the crew for the day after winning Volcom Brand Jeans, travel, hotels, guest list tickets and plenty of beers. Matthew Rutherford -‐ Prize Winner: “Festival tickets, travel, hotel, jeans. I’ve been looking forward to the bands, the food and the beer. You can’t beat this can you, really?" The Fat White Family smashed through a killer set with their frontman Lias getting well amongst it all with the crowd. Our Finnish connection, Eniz Fazliov enjoying the Visions outdoor space… …With our Aussie connection Dustin. The Visions blimp flew high and mighty all day above the festival. Our contest winners Matt Rutherford and Joe Seager sank a few beers with Dustin and lurked heavily with us throughout the festival. Good times! Lois Pendlebury and Harry Lintell. A couple of teeth short. Dustin sees downtime, Lois sees playtime. No caption required Our pal and PR master, Leanne trying to work out what trouble Harry’s hijinks will land them in next. The party crew outside the Oval Space venue. Low key Raemers. Quietly fuelling the fire… Theres something out there. Claw Marks really, really know how to put on a show. Hanging from the rafters. Literally. London Fields in between shows. Dustin & Eniz take five… Always on. Dustin kept everyone entertained – especially our two new mates. The face of a man with a plan REDDOS! Stretching before hitting the next show. That’s some serious knowledge! Ben Raemers. Taxi service in full swing.
