If you want to have a good time, this guy is your best bet. Every song Ty Segall sings is somewhat of a powerful masterpiece that gets you in a great mood. We happened to find a 15 minute full acoustic performance of his that we know you'll love. Enjoy...

Last weekend 20 motivated girls came to the Kitzsteinhorn for the elooa GIRLS BALANCE CAMP presented by VOLCOM. Also present were next to the elooa crew, a yoga teacher, a professional photographer as well as a filmmaker and the pro riders Mary Luggen & Ana Rumiha. After check-in the camp started with a yoga session into the weekend. Super motivated and well equipped with new Nitro Snowboards everbody went to the glacier on Saturday. After an extensive warm up and a few runs through the resort the girls practiced freestyle basics first before a perfectly shaped snowpark was waiting. Together with the coaches and the pro girls everybody practiced intensively all day and learned new tricks. In the afternoon we went back to our hotel, the Active by Leitner ́s 4* hotel that had all lot to offer: holiday galore! After coffee and cake a one hour yoga session with Anna Kathalina followed and before dinner everyone could recover in the spa area. After a very delicious and healthy dinner the day ended with an intense video coaching for all participants. On the final Sunday all campers went back to the Snowpark Kitzsteinhorn to implement the new tips of the pros and elooa coaches directly. The weather was still kind of inconsistant but we had sunshine all day. After numerous runs and a lot of new tricks in the bag an eventful weekend came to an end. The elooa crew would like to thank all participants, the sponsors, the hotel Active by Leitner ́s and the Kitzsteinhorn for an amazing camp. We are looking forward to more elooa GIRLS CAMPS in 2017. We still have a couple of spots for our GIRLS SPLITBOARD and GIRLS BACKCOUNTRY FREERIDE CAMP available. Find more infos on www.elooa.com

Last Saturday our boys Axel Cruysberghs and Victor Pellegrin cruised to Place de La Republique in Paris with a good portion of the scene, from the local kids to national heavy hitters such as Charles Collet, Joseph Garbaccio, Ben Garcia and more. The purpose was to celebrate the return of the Volcom granite skate setup in the heart of the French capital. The sun was shining - a perfect to start the afternoon which led to a fun and busy skate session in between the regular Republique weekend folks such as activists demonstrating about Cote–D’Ivoire new government (with a solid PA blasting african rhythms) or the "Nuit Debout" activists... A bunch of tricks got landed, high fives exchanged, and some giveaways were flown to the kids, and it was time to move to the Fluctuat Nec Mergitur cafe, right in the middle of the plaza for some after session beers, music and to announce the results of #VolcomRepublique best line skate contest. Tons of prizes got awarded to some of the many entrants and top 3 got to split the 1500€ prize purse of the contest. The judge panel consisting of David ‘Tura’ Turakiewicz (A Propos Magazine), Fred ‘D’ Demard (Soma skate medicine) and Christian Vankelst (Volcom Team manager) had a tough job picking the winners and in the end Joseph Garbaccio from Le Havre took the win (and the biggest check). Good times! Check the photos and the winning entries below (all photos by Vincent Coupeau) 1st place : Joseph Garbaccio (1000€) 2nd place : Benjamin Garcia (300€) 3rd place : Jonathan Jean-Philippe (200€) Axel fs flip the session was on in the afternoon #volcomrepublique winners Jonathan Jean-Philippe, Benjamin Garcia and Joseph Garbaccio CHECK OUT ALL #VOLCOMREPUBLIQUE VIDEOS ENTRIES HERE celebration time gearing up Joseph Garbaccio hardflip Axel Cruysberghs bs180 sw five o party on with Vincent Perrin Volcom Jeans and Chinos raffle!

The weather forecasts are firing, your crew is blowing you up, and the weekend shred getaway is dialed in! Now the serious question: what are you going to pack?! Some of the biggest things that can make or break that perfect day of shredding is how you prepare for the conditions and a little knowledge into what to expect. As we all know, you aren’t going to last long nuking pow day showing up to the chairlift in just a hoodie, or getting stuck sweating it out in that heavy down jacket during warm spring conditions. Making good outerwear decisions is crucial! So, to help you out, we had a few of the Volcom Snow Team riders breakdown their favorite gear to wear during their hometown weekend shred sessions! "When planning a trip to Mammoth, CA in November, you can expect conditions to range from sunny and perfect to puking powder. My go-to outerwear set up is a hooded sweatshirt with a flannel or windbreaker, but I always keep a good warm / waterproof jacket close by for the cold mornings and surprise powder days."- Scott Blum Shop Blum's Winter Weekend Essentials Simons Insulated Flannel Jacket JLA Stone Zip Fleece Alternate Jacket Freakin Snow Chino Base RPET Crew Base Layer Pant Sweep Beanie Stay Dry Mitt More Winter Weekend Essentials Scott Blum Bryan Iguchi Pat Moore Arthur Longo Elena Hight Marcus Kleveland Shop All Snow Outerwear

The Volcom gang was beyond ready for the snow season to start. So they embarked on a 4 stop mission to Glacier openings in the area with some simple goals; shred and get together with all our snowboarding friends and share some good times. Gang Partnering with long time friends Go-Shred, they started with Hintertux on October 1st, following with Kaunertal on October 8, Kitzsteinhorn on the next day then finishing up with Stubai on October 22, setting up on the parking lots with games, music and free BBQs with refreshments after each session to extend the the stoke of the first rides. We met Gigi in STUBAI Hintertux was sunny and felt so good with mellow vibes, Kaunertal was maniac with tons of shredders from all over Europe, and a miniramp was added to the parking lot setup. Fort that last one, Go Shred organized a rad shuttle service from Innnsbruck to Kaunertal including coffee, croissant and a Volcom surprise bag Kitzsteinhorn, which happens to be Volcom partner resort, was absolutely packed.. It was madness in the park, with almost as many riders hiking the park as there were on the T-bar. You can now ride mor than 1200 vertical meters.. Check Kitzsteinhorn.at for live updates Stubai Then the tour finished with the Stubai Glacier opening with a good session on the Friday, and Saturday afternoon we set up at the bottom of the new multi million € Gondola and prepared everything for the smiling guests. With some drinks provided from our partner Jimmy’s bar, music, finger food, and a big raffle, everyone enjoyed themselves. Stubai_StoneArmy Please note that it has been snowing A LOT since these pics were taken.. We are off to one of the BEST winter starts in many years. Many resorts are reporting of a 1m+ base at 2000m BIG thank you to all of you for celebrating with us and supporting Volcom & go-shred.com.

It's no secret, being cold and wet is the easiest way to ruin a good day on the hill. And let's face it, everyone falls down, slides out, sits on a icy/wet chairlift and so on. It is snowboarding after all, and snow is going to try to find a way up your jacket and down your pants, soaking your base layers making it difficult to regulate your body temperature and in general cause you discomfort. Which is why over a decade ago the design team at Volcom developed the innovative Zip Tech® "zip your jacket to your pants" system for Volcom Outerwear as the first line of defense in keeping your body dry and your stoke high.

New for this season Volcom introduces far-infrared (FIR) fabric technology to their flagship outerwear jacket, the TDS® GORE-TEX® jacket, setting a new standard in insulated performance outerwear. Learn More Short for "Thermal Defense System", the TDS® INF GORE-TEX® jacket is built to perform in the most demanding alpine environments. By introducing FIR technology to the strategically placed thermal panels on the inside of the jacket, whose GORE-TEX® fabric shell utilizes GORE® C-KNIT™ backer technology, the TDS® is now warmer and lighter than ever. Constructed using a carbon yarn based far-infrared fabric, the 3-layer lining system allows the body to heat and warm itself using its own far-infrared waves to prevent heat loss. Achieved through use of infrared panels that absorb, store and re-emit the body’s natural heat emissions, while venting excess heat once the fabric's storage capacity is full. With the placement of the infrared panels filled with 80/20 down around the body's core, the most critical parts of the body are continually warmed, while areas prone to overheating and require greater breathability are left unlined with key placement of zippered vents for maximum thermal comfort. By designing the perfect layering and thermal regulating system directly into the jacket, we've eliminated the need for a 2nd layer. Just put on a proper 1st/base layer, like the TDS® Base Layer Crew, and go on your way. Shop TDS® INF GORE-TEX® Jacket
