Volcom Hot Spot // Barcelona

Maybe you already live in a cool town like Barcelona, located in front of the beach with this indescribable amazing vibe. Or maybe you don’t, but you’ve been planning to spend a weekend there with your friends or boyfriend. If the latter fits you, you’ll probably love this article. This week we asked Patricia, our Volcom Store Manager in Barcelona, to share her favorite spots in the city. I don’t know about you but after writing this we already want to try all these places.

 

 Where to get a drink and/or eat something?

Makamaka Beach Burger Café is definitely the place to go if you want to try the best affordable burgers in town in a laid back, relaxed and cool ambience.

Surf House Barcelona is born from the California way of life. Indeed, if you want to eat fast but healthy with product of quality, you should find happiness here. They have really nice smoothies and breakfasts and DJs are playing on the weekend. Before relaxing in front of the beach, you can still try one of the activities organized by SHB: insane training, running, paddle surf or even yoga.

Gallito Is a restaurant under the vine leaves, next to the beach, with a casual atmosphere. This mix derives from a simple food prepared with fresh quality product made into a home cooked meal with touches of worldly flavors that that lets us travel away without leaving the table.

Where to listen to music?

Apolo club is actually made up of two adjacent venues - Apolo 1 and Apolo 2. Apolo 1 is a larger space with an old theatre vibe - high ceilings, a large stage and lots of red velvet. Apolo 2 is a more modern space - darker, smaller and with a banging sound system. Before heading to Apolo it is worth considering the line-ups in the two different clubs - programmers try to ensure that the genres don't clash, ensuring that you can choose from a varied music selection. Apolo's music policy is one of the most forward thinking in the whole city. Both Apolo 1 and Apolo 2 are gig venues until midnight, after this the DJs hit the decks. Genres on offer span from everything hip hop to dub step to techno to burlesque, all depending on what night of the week you are there.

Apolo’s Nasty Mondays an excuse to dance, sing and shout every Monday. It is a party that is directly linked to the skate, surf and snowboard scene at which you can hear Rock, Pop, Indie, Garage, 80’s and Electro Rock. The night was born in 2004 on a cold Monday night in Escudellers Street and has grown and grown until it found its home and its identity in Apolo.

Primavera Sound Festival was created in 2001 and takes place every year sometime during May. All the indie groups of the moment perform in the Parc del Forum. The Primavera Club is the same festival but in November and this time it all takes place in different spots of the city.

Every year since 1994, the Sonar Festival goes off in Barcelona for a weekend in June in order to honor electronic music and multimedia art. On the agenda: an impressive line-up that brings together the best DJ’s of the moment

Where to stay true to this?

Marbella Skate Park is a bowl skate park on the beach where it’s fun to see some insane skating, or do some yourself, while not being too far from the ocean to take a dip if things get to hot.

Nevermind is a unique underground Grunge venue, with a skate bowl inside, cheap prices and a great 90's vibe. It blends perfectly grunge music and skate culture. With live performances of both music and skate, Nevermind in it's two locations, is one of the best kept gems of Bcn's bar scene.

MACBA is the official Skater spot, in the middle of the city. MACBA is short for the Metropolitan Museum of Barcelona, also known as Plaça dels Angels, where all the skaters gather most days of the year. The museum is worth a visit and great coffee, drink and lunch spots surround the open square, or “plaça” outside.

As Barcelona’s not famous for it’s surf, even though it does get occasional small waves, Stand Up Paddling could be an option for some of you at Barceloneta Beach.

 

And last but not least, don’t forget to go to the Volcom Store located at Calle Canuda 35, 08002 Barcelona and check out the totally rad mosaic creation on the floor at the entrance, made as a tribute to the Gaudi style which has made Barcelona so famous.

Patricia and her team will be happy to help you with anything!

Volcom Skate Team’s Favorite Pieces from the Holiday 2017 Collection
Abandoned pools, rent-a-cops, real cops and more fences than we ever cared to deal with! For the release of our Holiday 2017 Collection, we grabbed a few of our skate dudes and asked them to pick out their favorite pieces. CJ Collins, Dane Burman, Milton Martinez, and Alec Majerus each handpicked their go-tos and we headed off to some skate spots to film them in the gear. Dive in below to watch these mini edits and explore the Holiday '17 Collection. CJ COLLINS We met up with CJ and legendary Steve "Salba" Alba to check out a couple of Salba's secret backyard pools scattered throughout the inland empire. The first pool was small and steep, but CJ is so small that he had no problem putting down some difficult tricks. In the last pool we visited, there was a massive love seat that seemed daunting to say the least. Our anticipation would have been much higher, but with someone like CJ who can spring his way over almost anything, he had no trouble boosting a backside ollie over it. Salba joined in on the action and was seriously impressed with what he saw go down throughout the day. After the two exhausted themselves trying to master the deep end, the crew packed up and had a rewarding early dinner at none other than Chilis. Frickin Modern Chino CJ Collins, grom trash duty DANE BURMAN We picked up Dane at Black Box Distribution in San Diego (where he's currently living on the couch), and kicked around spots to check out. We were trying to film a trick a few weeks with him before the second Wanderlodge trip, and he got hurt, so this session was his first time back. The first spot we found was a gap to rail, but we got kicked out so we decided to come back later when the place was closed. We drove around for awhile and checked out more spots, but they were either too big or there was another obstacle in our way. Eventually, we made it to a school where there were a few solid handrails, but fences plagued the areas so we moved on. He hopped a fence and found these cool trees that he could ollie through, but thought the gap was too long. Luckily, there was a grate in front of one that he could prop up with a skateboard and launch off of. He attempted the tree ollie a few times, but came up short. He was motivated to conquer the trick, so he kept trying, again and again, and even with the tight squeeze between the branches, he ended up stomping the trick with ease just before we were to head off to another spot. Frickin Regular Chino Pants Dane Burman strategizing his tree ollie MILTON MARTINEZ Milton wanted to skate the first spot we found because he said he wanted to "go fast and fly." Alex, part of the Volcom crew, brought his Harley to tow him in to a huge gap jump, but we ended up having the cops called on us and Milton couldn't get the trick down before we got told to leave. Although, he did get a kickflip melon pretty quick while the cops were in route. That spot was fun, but illegal, so we went to another spot Milton could get towed in to by the Harley. The route to tow in at this new spot was narrow and not really enough room to completely stop, so he had to ride through the grass to make it work. Milton ollied off the bump all the way to the street in under an hour, and when we were filming all the b-roll stuff, Alex caught a patch of soft grass and crashed his motorcycle. Luckily, he wasn't hurt and his bike wasn't too busted, so we ended up fitting it in the back of the van and headed out. Kneon Nights T-shirt Milton Martinez taking a breather ALEC MAJERUS We rolled up on a spot w/ Alec, saw some huge stairs, and knew someone had to do it, and that someone was Alec. The photographer, Swainston, wasn't too familiar with Alec, so he wasn't expecting anything gnarly, but that's exactly what he got. When he realized Alec was going for an ally-oop backside flip over the stair rail, he knew he had to buckle down and be ready to nail the shot. Alec took some beatings, but kept a determined and motivated vibe alive. He nailed it, and so did Swanston. Frickin Modern Chino Pants Alec eyeing up a rail

LONGO, HAAKONSEN AND FRIENDS IN OLIVIER GITTLER’S INTROSPECTION
OLIVIER IS A MAN OF MANY TALENTS. AT RIDING HIS SNOWBOARD, FILMING, EDITING, MAKING MUSIC, OR CELEBRATING LIFE, HE CONSTANTLY EXCELS. Oh, Oli's also the reigning Quarter Pipe World Champion, although he'll never admit to it. It’s no secret that a 30-second Instagram clip is usually a condensed version of a week-long trip around the world to document a specific goal. Whether it's a trick for a video part, a photo for the mags, field testing product, or any other reason to chase a winter storm. But, what about all the shenanigans in between? From airplanes to rental cars, hotel rooms to summits, and everything in between, sometimes the moments that define these trips are caught in-between takes. Volcom ambassador Olivier Gittler, with his strong appreciation for behind-the-scenes footage, put together this unique look at a season untold with Arthur Longo, Terje Haakonsen and friends.  "IT’S WHAT WE LOVE TO DO. ALL THE THINGS THAT HAPPEN WHEN WE TRAVEL FOR SNOWBOARDING. THE SPONTANEOUS PART OF TRAVELING AROUND THAT NO ONE ELSE SEES." – OLIVIER GITTLER Oli double exposure photo by Adailton Oli Mike and Jeff shot by Vernon Deck Oli Mike and Jeff shot by Vernon Deck music recording setup iphone Oli and Arthur iphone Oli close up shot by Arthur Oli forest iphone Oli Mt Blanc iphone Oli photo by Adailton Oli setup iphone Oli shot by Longo - Crater Lake Super 8 Paulina Lake iphone
