The Psychic Migrations premiere in Asbury, New Jersey was an absolute blast. Located right on the beach at the historic (and haunted-feeling) Paramount Theatre, the evening began with the TCT Jellyfish early sign-up party at the theater from 4-6pm, ending right before we opened the doors to the eager crowd for the premiere.

Our VIPs: Farias, Brave New World, Spellbinders, Island Style, Inlet Outlet; and our athletes: Balaram Stack, Mike Gleason, Pat Schmidt, who are all from around this area, showed up early and were instrumental in the success of this premiere, especially Mike Gleason. We haven’t seen that kind of community love and support in a long time, if ever. The surf community is alive and well in NJ, and the Volcom Stone is as strong as ever!

After about an hour of letting the patrons drink, socialize around the bar, eat some tacos (catered by Surf Taco), we had everyone take their seats and did a short introduction on the stage preceding the movie. Volcom's Billy Hume introduced Mike Gleason, Balaram Stack, and Pat Schmidt, and then passed the mic on to Gleason for an enduring, heartfelt speech. And what a speech it was.

After the speeches it was time to watch Director Ryan Thomas's masterpiece, Psychic Migrations. The theater was packed with well over one-thousand spectators in attendance, and the enthusiasm was high. Thank you to everyone who came out and we hope you enjoyed Psychic Migrations!

Euro Thrash Video: Volcom Surf's European Vacation
Our good friends at Wasted Talent put together a video of some of our riders: Noa Deane, Ryan Burch, Gony Zubizarreta, and more, thrashing their way through Portugal, Spain, and France during their summer '17 European vacation. From scoring one of the best days of surf they've ever seen at The Cave, to touring the local watering holes and taverns, to getting caught up in a weird presidental campaign in Paris, there was no shortage of amusement and European debauchery. It was a great trip that surely lived up to its name: Euro Thrash. The team riders, photographers, and crew, all became great friends by the end of the trip and ended on a promise to all return back soon. Euro Thrash 2.0?

Elena Hight - ThisFirst - 10/17
What happens when you give all your blood, sweat, and tears and it just isn’t good enough? Elena Hight (@elenahight) is no stranger to the relentless work it takes to feed a passion. As a top contender in the women’s halfpipe contest circuit, a Winter X Games gold medalist, and a two-time Olympian, Elena understands the amount of dedication and sacrifice required to stand on top of the podium. "Everything that I do and think, and base my life around, is around snowboarding, and when it's not going good, there's almost no escape." Listen to Elena as she explains her obsession of achieving the impossible, quitting not being an option, and the ups and downs of putting your passion before everything, in this latest episode of ThisFirst.

The Film Project BCN event recap
This last summer some of the best skateboarding photographers in Europe were given 3 film rolls to shoot. The idea was to use them as they wanted and ship them back for this The Film Project initiative supported by Volcom. The result it´s been really exciting as it usually happens with analog photography. Forty pictures were selected and put together in this first exhibition which took place in Studio Store venue, located in the Borne neighborhood in Barcelona last October the 4th. Lots of skateboarders and analog photography lovers showed up to see the works while they shared some fresh Pabst Blue Ribbon beers. If you missed it, stay tuned for some more dates around Euro cities to be confirmed and check #TheFilmProject2017 hashtag for peeping a bit. Some select pics will feature in the finest skate magazines in Europe. Thanks to Pabst Spain for the colds, Dogway crew and all the contributing photographers for making it happen. The photos will be exhibited in various locations throughout October and November, stay tuned for a show/party near you!

Leuven Skate Contest
The Leuven Family gathered once again for Leuven Skate Contest. Every year they have a new theme, this time they went all the way with JOHNNY’S & MARINAS. There wasn’t just a costume contest, beers and bbq. No, there was some skateboarding also. You’ve never seen a bowl and street contest this friendly and fun. Simon Deprez took the win with the Volcom best trick contest. Everybody killed it but one guy stood out, he protected his hometown and his title as biggest Johnny of them all, so Jonathan Thijs took the win. And there is no better Johnny prize than a Scooter. Once again, big thanks to the Leuven Family, Twits Skateshop and Volcom. See y’all next year. Credit Photo : Joselito Verschaeve
