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.

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!

Leuven Skatecontest Report -Poolparty and Beach games Edition
To give you an idea of the whole contest, well it looked like the intro of Baywatch, girls in red bathing suits, guys in bathing suits…  Even the funky tunes in the background took me back into the 80’s. I have to apologize for my typo in the beginning, it wasn’t much of a contest, it was more like a family gathering. It was so cool, just a whole lot of friends hanging and fooling around in way to short shorts. But there were some contests though, like the Best 80’s air, hot sand challenge or my personal favorite: ‘ THE BEST FLIP FLOP TRICK ‘, guys hitting the rails or throwing switch tre bombs of the stairs in flip flops. Some mojito’s and some burgers in between, this was one hell of a contest. And to end the day, a crazy bowl contest. Everybody dropped in at the same time and the last man standing got a free deck, bet you can create an image of the mayhem. I have to say, it was a great day with great people. Big thanks to T(w)its, Willem and the whole Leuven family. Photo credit : Joselito Verschaeve

Volcom X AntiHero collection launch party in Belgium
The ingredients to a successful Volcom x Anti-Hero Launch Party ? Some local beers, some good burgers and a “secret” D.I.Y spot. The guys from Volcom and Twits Skateshop had it all figured out. The location was not posted online, only a phone number. Everybody that wanted to get the address of the spot, had to text message us. The phone got spammed and shortly after the spot was crowded and ready for the party. This day was all about good times, having a good skate session and catching up with the locals. After filming some lines and some dirt bike stunts, a best trick contest got organized to celebrate the new clothing collection. Everybody was skating the new obstacle and crashing into each other to get some of fresh products from the collab. [26/09/2016 14:20:04] Maxime Thabart: Thanks to Volcom and Twitsskateshop for the good vibes, good session and the sick products Photos + text: Joselito Verschaeve Quoi de mieux, garder les HYDRATES Que de clients la bière locale de Louvain.

Marcus Kleveland upside down down under!
The Kleveland show just came back from 5 weeks spent flipping and spinning all over Perisher, NZ and other Oz mountains.. Here a nice edit of what he’s being doing. Marcus is always in full control of all things snowboarding. However, from the sounds of it, someone picked the soundtrack for him this time around. How else would you explain the absence of the usual “Justin Bieber on speed” sound? Go Marcus! Marcus is wearing the Kabigtime Fleece in WHT, the Stretch Gore pant in TEK and the Travelin’ Hood Thingy in BLK

Nixon | The Four Moors: a journey through Sardinia
Italy is not known for waves but there's always exceptions. When a significant Mediterranean swell arised on the charts, Nixon longtime surfers Marlon Lipke and Gony Zubizarreta embarked on a plane to Sardinia, Italy, to join Roberto D'Amico for a 3-day surf mission. 'The Four Moors' is a short movie filmed and edited by Francesco Thilo Sili The trip seen by Gony: I was just arriving home after the WQS in Martinique and got a call from Marlon Lipke saying that Italy was going to be pumping the next day! Roby Damico was already planning everything from Rome. We jumped on a plane that next morning and got the Ferry to Sardina straight away, we had to get there in time. The Mediterranean can be very tricky, swells come and go very quickly! I was impressed by the quality and power of some pointbreaks we surfed. Super rippable waves with pretty cool locals or even empty line ups and little bays with beautiful backgrounds and nobody around. The Italians are so funny, very open and social, they are constantly joking and laughing which made our trip one for the books! We had an awesome time, surfing all day and eating pasta amatriciana cooked by the master Chef Roberto Damico aka DiMaggio. The pizza was the best Ive ever tried for sure. Food is out of control there. I miss it already. After surfing our brains out in Sardina we came back to Ladispoli and visited Rome, it looks like a massive museum, with monuments and sculptures everywhere you go. You can choose from all kinds of typical restaurants and bars, the streets are full of people hanging out ,eating and drinking. Having a great time basically. It was an amazing trip, I loved Italy and have to admit that Im a fan of surfing in the Mediterranean Sea. Thank you Roby and family for treating us like kings! Also big thanks to Francesco Thilo for the filming and editing! Eugenio and all the friends that made this journey unforgettable for me! Big Hugs Guillaume
