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.

Volcom Snow's The Launch - Watch Now!
Last month our Volcom Snow ams, better known as the Stone Army crew, loaded up the RV and charged up to Bear Mountain for Snowboarder Magazine’s ninth annual The Launch 2016 presented by Volcom. The Launch is an assembly of age 21 and under riders handpicked by the Snowboarder Magazine crew for a 4 day media shred frenzy, and this year it was brought back to the San Bernadino mountains and constructed by the Bear Mountain crew full of endless rails, transition and kicker possibilities. Despite some windy, blizzard, and sometimes great conditions the boys were on fire with non-stop bell-to-bell action! When it was all said and done, Brock Crouch was awarded Standout and 10 yr old Aussie Valentino Guseli took home the Super Grom award for charging almost every feature in the park!

Austrian Rider Roli Tschoder stretches his back leg over the Kaunertal access road
  Here’s a short edit showing how amazing the conditions are up at Kaunertal Glacier right now, only 40 minutes from the Volcom Snow Team house. There’s hardly anyone around, aside from the like-minded, the park is in mint condition, you can ride from 3200 to 2000m and there’s even pow on offer. Way better conditions now  than in December/January.  Roli from Ischgl certainly has his priorities straight.. But unless you can ride like Roli, the we recommend you spare the stretching until you’re safely back on the ground again.  Now run to the hills… Pic and edit by Flo Achenrainer

Retrospection video by Olivier Gittler and Arthur Longo
If you plan on only seeing ONE snowboard video this year, then here you have it. Volcom lifer Olivier Gittler and his trusty collaborator Arthur Longo just put together a full length edit of all their Instagram short clips from the winter past.. In it you’ll see their unique take on snowboarding. And as you’ll watch you’ll slowly realise that “higher and further”’ isn’t always the goal. That it is just as much about the right turn at the right place at the right time. Or a backflip? And another backflip.. Backflips are never wrong. At times it might even look like the boys are bored with their day job (?!?) as they seem to be surfing more than snowboarding. But why not? Therein lies the beauty of this edit.. Get out off the park and look at what’s hidden behind it.  Or even IN it, as you follow our friends and their friends, finding park lines yet to be thought of.. Or making their own park outside of the park.. This is truly beautiful Olivier .. Please do even more of what you’re already doing.  Filmed on location in Les Des Alpes, Kitzsteinhorn, Chamonix, US Open, Arlberg and more Music: Leopard Ale IG: @leopard_ale
