The Odyssée Tour // Anouck Grau

Anouck Grau is a French-Swiss snowboarder and part of the Volcom family. Outside of snowboarding, she has been involved in the making of "Ride The Wall", an exhibition representing the urban culture from every angle and mixing art to the sport through athletes, photographers and big-name artists. The first edition was held from 7th to 27th of June this past summer in Geneva, and it was a success. Since this, she’s kept busy and the magazine E-adrenaline (www.e-adrenaline.fr) just interviewed her about her latest project, an exhibition in partnership with “Art By Friends”, on showcase from September 18th at the Geneva Artspace. As the real article is in French, we’ve taken the liberty to translate it to English for all you non-French speakers.

Hi Anouck, can you tell us how did you get the idea for the next show?

After Ride The Wall I wanted to continue to host events related to art and sports. So naturally I decided to team up with Art By Friends, a platform that has shared this passion for many years. The new project “Odyssée Tour” is a traveling exhibition and Geneva is a perfect city for this show.

How can we put the snowboard forward through art?

There are so many connections between the two disciplines, with the photo and video of snowboard for example. Today the playground of snowboarders is becoming more creative: the spots, tricks… It's all an art form. And then there is also the collab between artists and snowboard brands. The explanation could be very long.

What is the message you want to convey?

Somehow I would like to improve the image that our sport has and also highlight the artistic part of it, which is sometimes hiding. Snowboarding (or skating) is not just about youth gangs who are partying, it's an investment of 150%, a fitness routine, a lot of creativity, finding spots to practice their passion. Then you also have people who want to promote values ​​such as ecology.

Did you intend to create other events such as the Odyssée?

Yes, my head is full of ideas for future expositions planned for the first half of next year. And of course, it will have a Ride The Wall 2 and we’ll prepare something crazy.

You are known to ride street spots. What is your favorite destination to practice?

Between two expos, I try to stay in small stations around Annecy. Otherwise Tignes is great for street riding. We are a good team with the crew of the Minority or Avoriaz.

Where will you be when the snow will be back?

Between my gallery and mountains tops. We are planning a trip to Helsinki with Volcom to do some street riding.

Have you managed to cure your hip problem?

Unfortunately the pain is still there, it's tough mentally to say we did everything, and that change takes time ... I try to be fit, eat well and swim a lot (the best sport you can do when nothing else is possible to do). We'll see in the future but I would attack this winter of course!

Thank you Anouck, fingers crossed to see you on the snow as soon as possible.

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.

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!
