New Future: Social Responsibility & Philanthropy

New Future: Social Responsibility & Philanthropy

When we talk about sustainability and the New Future, it can’t be discussed without recognition of the people that make our products and the communities where we do business. When it comes to manufacturing our products, we can all agree the products we buy, should not come at the cost of workers’ rights, health and or safety. Additionally, the places we do business are made up of communities all over the world, and we truly enjoy the opportunity to engage with them, and support the great initiatives within them, in many different ways. Here are a few of those stories from 2015:

Fair Labor Association Member

The Fair Labor Association believes that all goods should be produced fairly and ethically, and brings together three key constituencies – universities, civil society organizations (CSOs) and companies – to find sustainable solutions to systemic labor issues. We were first granted membership in 2014, and our commitment continues. Learn more at http://www.fairlabor.org.

We’re happy to help sustain the programs we put in place as far back as 2012. Additionally, thanks to Mizu, a portion of the sales from Volcom branded Mizu water bottles go back to supporting their program as well.

Interview of Joan Duru - Qualification WT 2017
    Do you have any passions or hobbies besides surfing? I like to go mountain-biking with my friends or my dad. Tasty beef ribs, some wine with my buddies or spending time with my girlfriend. On the QS Tour this year, you seems calm and relaxed with good results following, did you change something in the way you train? I didn’t make any change for a long time, and it seems that it just starts working now. I’m 100% dedicated to my work with Mayhem, a board sponsor I’m working with for 1 year now. I always had magic boards which allows me to mainly focus on the rest. Is that what we used to call “maturity“ or “gaining experience“? It’s true that priority establishment totally changed my life on the WQS. Priorities make it easier, because you can wait for the best wave without being affraid of someone who will get through to the inside at the last minute. Since, the only thing to focus on is trying not to fall down!!! You hardly work on your physical training and surf training, which obviously helped you this year, but you’ve always been one of the World best surfers, what’s up in Joan Duru’s mind? I love sport, and I feel really bad if I’m not doing anything, thus training is not a chore, but a real pleasure ! Moreover, Maud (Le Car, his girlfriend and member of the Volcom team) and a group of young frenchy surfers such as the Cloarec, Charly Quivront and Bastien, are lucky to have Charly Ducamp as personal trainer, who is actually a great coach. On the surf side, I’m working with Manu Portet for several years now. He was there to support me at all contests where I made good results, which helped me a lot!!! Tell us about your 2016 season strong moments? Starting with the second position at Balito (first WQS 10000 of the season) helped me a lot, as there were only a few primes that year. And now, I’m glad and more than happy that I made a semi-final at Haleiwa despite the pressure of the qualification, but the good waves made it amazing. How would you feel when you’ll officially be on the Tour? Satisfied or feeling that something even stronger has just started? I feel really excited, but I’m aware of the very high level, thus I will have to train harder physically and technically, so that I can hope to face and beat the World Best Surfers. When seeing some guys such as Julian Wilson who had to come back to qualify for the QS last year, it shows the huge level. What are your ambitions on the Tour? Be qualified again for the CT would be amazing. Without waffle, what’s your objective? Quarters on the first contests, it would be epic to kick off the year. What are your plans to get ready for this new life? I’ll spend winter in France to train hard, spend time with my girlfriend, my family, and my mates. I have to get ready for the upcoming year, cause it’s going to be a long tough year, with many contests. I’m lucky to have Maud by my side in Australia, and I really hope my family will be able to come over one or two contests to fully enjoy it. You’ve been really well welcomed by the public during the Pro France and Lacanau, can you tell us how the relationship with the french audience is that special? Cause we’re equal I guess. Timing issue : The Olympic Games? How do you feel about it? You’re still young and will obviously be a contender to be a member of the French Team. Do you fancy doing it? Yes, it’s my dream, I’ll work as hard as I can to make it happen. How are you going to celebrate this event? Any special thanks? A word to spread? I think we’ll have to rent a room to gather all my friends and family to celebrate. I want to thank all the people that supported me, my girlfriend Maud, my family, my friends, and all my sponsors (Volcom, Vans, Mahyem, Creatures of Leisures, Hercules) who never stopped to believe in me for all these years, and let’s celebrate now!!!

# VolcomRepublique Celebration!
    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!

Scott Blum's Weekend Essentials | Volcom Outerwear 2017
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

Glaciers opening meat and greet tour!
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.

Volcom Zip Tech® Jacket-to-Pant System Keeps Snow Out
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.
