 POOL LEGENDS OF SKATE JOIN A STELLAR LINEUP FOR

VOLCOM BOWL-A-RAMA™ GETXO

 

Action sports fans will witness the world’s best skaters, pool legends and the “Godfathers” of skate, coming together for the inaugural Volcom BOWL-A-RAMA™ Getxo at La Kantera skatepark, Arrigunaga beach in the Abra Bay of Getxo, Spain.

« For VOLCOM, hosting a bowl event in the basque country at legendary La Kantara as well as joining forces with  longtime legendary team rider and local resident ALAIN GOIKOTXEA is simply fantastic, we are so happy to bring all this together and trust the event will be a great time well spent. » said Remy Stratton, Volcom VP of skateboarding.

A major part of the festivities is the “Festival of the Skateboard” which is a week dedicated to celebrating art, music and true skateboard culture. The Festival of the Skateboard will feature old school skate sessions, barbeques, a surprise music element, The Love & Guts art show, Volcom BOWL-A-RAMA™ Getxo competition and the after party.

“I’ve never been to Spain but the bowl is very backyard like a pool, Jeff Grosso said I’m going to like it, a bowl on the beach, it's a no brainer.” Says pool legend Steve Alba (SAlba).

The international PRO list is one of the strongest BOWL-A-RAMA has had with Al Partanen, Alain Goikoetxea, Alex Perelson, Alex Sorgente, Ben Raybourn, Bjorn Lillesoe, Bugs Fardell, Chris Russell, Colin Provost, Cory Juneau, Danny Leon, David Sanchez, Diego Doural, Felipe Foguinho, Georgio Zattoni, Grant Taylor, Ivan Rivado, James McInnes, Josh Borden, Murilo Peres, Nilo Pecanha, Nolan Munroe, Otavio Neto, Pedro Barros, Raney Beres, Rion Linderman, Rob Lorifice, Rune Glifberg, Sam Beckett, Sky Siljeg, Steven Pineiro, Vi Kakinho and Vincent Matheron, with more to be confirmed.

The lineup of MASTERS is a who’s who of the legends and the oriinal pool “godfathers” in skateboarding including Brad Bowman, Eddie “El Gato” Elguera, Lester Kasai, Nick Couscouris, Nicky Guerrero, Pat Ngoho, Peter Hewitt, Sean Goff, Steve Alba and Txus Dominguez (La Kantera skate park designer).

Volcom BOWL-A-RAMA™ Getxo (Basque Country) will showcase the world's best and iconic Pro and Master’s bowl skateboarders as they grapple for the title of Volcom BOWL-A-RAMA™ Getxo champion and for a total prize purse of $US30,000.

“Bowl skating is diverse with flow bowls, pro bowls, snake runs and the rest all being part of the whole. It all comes from backyard pool skating though. La Kantera is one of the closest skatepark bowls in the world to what it feels like to ride an actual backyard pool. Being able to hold BOWL-A-RAMA in such a spot feels like we’re honouring all those who came before and created what we’re all taking part in now. Having SAlba, who won the first professional bowl competition and Brad Bowman and Eddie Elguara all dropping in just makes it that more special. Also, with such a wide international field making up the pro division we couldn’t ask for a better first year. Looking forward to seeing you all at the beach for Volcom BOWL-A-RAMA Getxo”. Says Chad Ford, Director of Frontside Events.

BOWL-A-RAMA™ was born on Bondi Beach – Sydney, Australia in 2005 and is the biggest professional concrete series in the World. With Wellington, Bondi, NYC and the addition of Getxo, BOWL-A-RAMA can now call some of the most iconic destinations in the world home.

William Aliotti wins the Arica Pro Tour in Chile
What an incredible trip in South America for the free surfer, William Aliotti who just won the WQS 1500 of Arica. Photo Credit : WSL The young french surfer was traveling in Chile with Seb Zanella, Desillusion’s chef editor, to work on his new coming project. Photos Credit : Seb Zanella/Nixon William had the opportunity to be in the draw of the first WSL contest he competed this year, and everything turned like a dream. Heat after heat, William showed incredible surf skills in heavy conditions, scoring big numbers. The final was the high point of William’s trip, where he earned a 10 point ride and the respect of the crowd ! Photos Credit : Seb Zanella/Nixon "Arica is incredible; the waves are always big and powerful, and it's consistent with any kind of swell. The people are great, the food is delicious and I had a great time here!  The waves have been amazing every day and that's the reason why I do these events. I was trying to build my scores throughout the event and I finally did that with the 10 at the end. I drove up here from Santiago and have been surfing the whole way. Those days in France when it was massive helped me a lot to feel confident in this kind of waves and I’m now over the moon with this victory! »    Photos Credit : Seb Zanella/Nixon Congrats again William!

Volcom Launches 'Volcom Stone Made' With Release of FW16 Jeans and Chinos Collection
Today, Volcom introduces the Volcom Stone Made design philosophy with the launch of their FW16 Jeans and Chinos collection. Meticulously engineered for life on the road, Volcom Stone Made products feature the highest quality materials with groundbreaking technology integrated at the fiber level and an unparalleled attention to detail resulting in some of the most profound products in the market today. Designed in collaboration with Volcom's world-renown skate team and working with America’s foremost manufacturer of high quality denim, Cone Denim®, Volcom Stone Made jeans feature one or more of the following attributes; "Superior Stretch" with Cone's S GENE® technology, "Anti-Microbial" for stopping the stench of odor-causing bacteria, "Durability" for enhanced resistance to tears and abrasions, and "Water Resistance" for increased liquid and stain repellency. With 2016 marking Volcom's 25th year as America's first boarding company and Cone Denim® celebrating their 125th year milestone as America's premiere denim maker, the timing was right for the two companies to come together to bring to market first an unprecedented collection of performance stretch denim jeans. Included in the Volcom Stone Made collection is Volcom's exclusive introduction of "Anti-Microbial" stretch denim woven by Cone, as well as enhanced "Durability" through the use of CONESTRONG™, and "Water Resistance" via the application of CONEgard™. Staying true to this philosophy, Volcom's venerable chinos program also received the Volcom Stone Made treatment with the introduction of two new styles: the Gritter and the Stranger. Boasting similar "Anti-Microbial," "Durability" and "Water Resistance" attributes as Volcom jeans, these chinos are built to wear easier and last longer. Designed for Skateboarding, Recommended for Life. Taking a cleaner approach to the brand's timeless style of jeans and chinos, Volcom has streamlined their fits across the entire pants category and elevated the performance features on every pair of jeans. With their deep roots in skateboarding and using history as a guide, Volcom has taken the last 25 years of designing pants and scrutinized and modernized every last detail to create a line of jeans and chinos made from high quality materials and construction methods while maintaining the key signature details they've become known for. Every pair of Volcom jeans features felled interior stitching and clean finished pocket bags for added comfort and less chafing, nearly indestructible buckle button closure and upgraded dual finish hardware for increased durability, a hidden phone pocket and double belt loops for convenient utility, while the asymmetrical detail of the offset back yoke and the "V" belt loop remain uniquely Volcom.

Costa Rica's Gold - Surf Team Goes South!
So we took a trip to Costa Rica to shoot our all-new Fall boardshorts & swimwear collections, and instead of ending the story right now with "and the rest is history," we'd like to give you a little insight into our majestic journey to the rugged Central American country. Enter Balaram Stack, Coco Ho, Nate Tyler, Maud Le Car, Ryan Burch, Quincy Davis, and Andrew "Droid" Doheny. Picture a desolate rainforest and narrow unstructured dirt roads echoed by a variety of bird chips and animal calls only to be triumphed by thoughts racing through your head of "where's the beach and how fast can we get there." 3,400+ miles from the nearest home in California, obvious transplants (no help from Balaram & Droid's bleached hair), and a crew full of expensive surfboards and camera equipment is your scene. photos by Tom Carey Quickly finding the way to our newly-found two-week home w/ an epic pool inside a quaint little village, we linked up with local legend Tony Roberts who is a mastermind that paved the way for the community down here by designing skateparks and running various surf tours. After ripping through some fun spots inside the village, and getting weird in the neighboring jungle, we hopped on a friend's boat and made our voyage to the famous Witch's Rock. For any surfer, Witch's is a bucket list mission and our journey there was one for the books! Witch's Rock Our goal was to shoot the team in our new boardshorts and swimwear collections, get some rad action shots, explore the land, and simply have a good time on this journey through a quest for spiritual intoxication. And we got that. But we got more, a lot more. Take a ride with us through a captivating feel-good photo book from our Costa Rican adventure: Droid: pro surfer, pro model.  Maud Le Car (left)Coco Ho (center)Quincy Davis (right) Coco Ho Ryan Burch w/ one of his hand-shaped mystical twin fins Quincy Davis (left)Coco Ho (middle)Maud Le Car (right) Quincy Davis       Buddies Oh hey, Quincy Droid rips!
