The World of Volcom Stone | Oct. 5th | Paris

Last Saturday 5th of October, Volcom Clothing hosted an afternoon celebrating the brand and its unique values in Paris.

"The World Of Volcom Stone" showcased the international première of Veeco’s latest film "True To This" , a skateboarding demo and a concert of the band Black Bananas. All this was for free as per usual.

The public could interact at some DIY stations with Volcom employees, to have some tee shirts screenprinted, some hats customized, some buttons stamped…get creative with the copy machine, and of course walk away with a million more goodies.

Some skate obstacles were especially made for the event and were also open to skate for everyone and soon a couple of good tricks got landed by local Frenchmen such as Robin Bolian or Jerôme Prefot.

At around 6 pm things went crazy with the Pros taking over the course. The Volcom Skate Team includes some of the best skateboarders on the planet…and with such heavy hitters the demo went nuts.

The skateboard team in Paris consisted of back to back Skaters Of The Year (voted by Thrasher Magazine) David Gonzalez and Grant Taylor, legend Rune Glifberg, superhuman Colin “Spider” Provost, Kingpin’s European favorite Eniz Fazilov, Belgian prodigy Axel Cruysberghs, all terrain shredders Alain Goikoetxea and Ben Raemers, and local team rider Vincent Coupeau, Dennis Busenitz was also present but injured.

The demo started full force with the two SOTY David Gonzalez and GT flying around; unfortunately Colin got hurt during the first minutes of the demo while landing a massive fs ollie, slaying the quarter pipe at the same time, adding some gnarlitude to the thing.

The crowd went wild with all the tricks landed, and then Axel and Eniz together closed the session on the stone obstacle respectively with a fs flip revert and a huge fs 360.

It was then time for the World première showing of "True To This" a sequel to the iconic Volcom film from 1991 "Alive We Ride" - a celebration of America’s First Boarding Company.

Ryan Immegart, Volcom VP of Marketing, introduced the movie on stage and then everyone enjoyed some raw skateboarding, surfing and snowboarding with another killer soundtrack. We won’t reveal any more spoilers here, as the film will drop publicly in March 2014.

Snowboard team riders Arthur Longo, Pat Moore and Elena Hight were also there having a good time, Spanish slasher Gony Zubizarreta also made the trip together with our friends and employees from Volcom from all around the world to celebrate.

The afternoon ended with the Black Bananas, the unclassifiable US band combining genres from psychedelia to metal, spearheaded by creative genius Jennifer Herrema.

So many things happened so fast…soon everyone was straight out into the nightlife, because coincidently the same night, the Parisian city event "Nuit Blanche" was on in all streets and plazas. This means everything was open late and everyone was wearing white. And partying.

That was a night to remember!

WORLD_OF_VOLCOM_STONE_740eng

When Volcom was founded in 1991, it was the first company to combine surfing, skateboarding and snowboarding under one brand. This way of life influenced the “Youth Against Establishment” style and attitude that defined a generation. The cultural phenomenon was best captured when Volcom released “Alive We Ride” in 1993: a film documenting the raw excitement and spontaneous creativity inherent to the lifestyle. Twenty years later, with the release of “True To This”, Volcom again captures the energy and artistry of board-riding in its purest forms. Shot on-location around the world and showcasing iconic athletes, “True To This” is a tribute to the movement that inspired a generation and the people and places that embody the spirit today.

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!!!

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

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.
