Volcom Hot Spot // Falmouth

Falmouth has been shaped and influenced by its strong connection to the sea. Its fascinating maritime heritage sits comfortably alongside the creative side of the town, and it has actually managed to build a name for itself as the South West’s main cultural and festival destination. In addition, Cornwall is considered as one of the best surf spots you can find in the UK. This week, Francesca, from the Falmouth’s Volcom store, serves us the must-go places in the area. 

 

Where to have a drink?

The Chain Locker Pub is a busy old-fashioned place in a fine spot by inner harbor. You will find a cheery young staff, nooks and crannies, bare boards and masses of nautical bric-a-brac as well as cool background music and machine games.

Established in 1999, the Blue Bar is Cornwall’s original beach bar & kitchen, with stunning views, an enviable location with freshly prepared great food & Barista coffees. It’s the perfect place to watch the sunset while enjoying a beer. All wrapped up in “shabby-chic” decor with a casual atmosphere. Situated on the dunes of Porthtowan beach in Cornwall, the Blue Bar and restaurant serves food all day and is the perfect place to get together with family and friends.

RUMBLE FISH
There is snow on the hills of Portugal. The drive to Portugal is long and usually uneventful. But the destination is always worth it. Returning to places you’ve been before can be a hard act to follow. However with the teamsheet assembled we had little doubt we’d be on for a good one. We would rent a house that anywhere outside of Portugal would be out of our budgets and we would live there for the best part of a month as a happy, yet highly dysfunctional family. We would go between wedges in the Algarve, the scary side of surfing in Nazare, 6am finishes in Lisbon and the glorious points of Ericeria. We would call it Rumblefish. Filmed and edited by : Guillem Cruells Starring Alex Bothelo, Gony Zubizaretta, William Aliotti, Joao Moreira, Charly Quivront, Maud Lecar, Bapiste Gaud and Harry Timson.

“Mexico City to San Miguel de Allende” on Motorcycles Visiting Ancient Structures + Skateboarding | Speak Two The Wind
This bonus episode of Speak Two The Wind finds CJ Collins, Collin Provost, Jackson Pilz, and others wandering through Mexico on motorcycles, embracing the ancient colonial architectures, 2,000-year-old pyramids, and various skate spots as they make their way from Mexico City to San Miguel de Allende. After the U.S. and Europe tours were finished, we all agreed we had one more trip left in our reserve tanks, so we devised a plan to visit San Miguel de Allende, a colonial-era city 170 miles northwest of Mexico City. We took off from Mexico’s capital on motorcycles with a solid crew and ended up discovering a place called Tula, populated with 2,000-year-old pyramids and structures, it was quite a sight to see. Continuing our journey, we finally made it to San Miguel de Allende where we stayed at our friend Luka Barrena’s house who coincidentally has a skate bowl in his backyard. The bowl was perfect and his backyard was full of tents and motorcycles. A local chef even volunteered to cook the local cuisine for us. We shared good laughs and good food with the local crew, skating and sharing stories before it was time to head back to Mexico City. Once we arrived in the capital, our friends Los Viejos, who are a local metal band, played a show for us to give us a proper send off.

Abandoned Playground launch with DayOff Skateshop
On Monday 20th of August, Volcom officially launched the Abandoned Playground collection at DayOff Skateshop in Paris. Located right next to the infamous Place de la République, we set up a pop up store inside the shop for a week and celebrated the collection with a party the next day. Skate team riders Jorge Simoes and Ben Raemers came to shred the city for the occasion with young local Tom Belot, and some best tricks were organized on the plaza using abandoned objects on the Tuesday afternoon. After a good time skateboarding everybody moved to the shop to celebrate with free drinks, Volcom prizes and Joel Aubrée putting on a great tunes selection. Everyone had a blast and we want to thanks everyone who showed up ! Special thanks to Tonton Reddah and Snoop for making all this possible. Photos below by Thibault Lenours.

Episode 2: "Arizona, Utah, And..." Northern AZ to Utah On Motorcycles With A Stop At The Grand Canyon | Speak Two The Wind
Episode 2 of Speak Two The Wind continues with the Volcom Skate Team as they find themselves motorcycling and skateboarding through Arizona and Utah, with stops at Glen Canyon Dam, Horseshoe Bend, Saint George, Valley of Fire and back to the Grand Canyon. After hitting spots in Arizona the crew hit the road heading north. As Chris Pfanner describes it, "it was like riding though a postcard for two weeks." Between the rides, spots were hit and tricks were documented. Towards the end of their two week journey the bond between crew only grew stronger and there was a yearning for more rides and open roads. With such a diverse group of international visitors on U.S. soil, there was no way they weren't going experience the crown jewel of U.S. Natural Park System. So with two weeks of grease and sweat in their jeans, they rode the south rim of the Grand Canyon to explore and take in its beauty. A perfect way to end and epic journey.
