The Sprocking Cat is still sprocking! What is there to be said about him that you don't already know? Giving Terje a snowboard at the ripe young age of 13 was like passing a basket ball to Michael Jordan for the first time.. The rest is history.. With more titles, movie parts, trophies and "Perfect lines" under his belt than a retired porn star, Terje keeps spending his days doing what he's always done, circumnavigating the globe in search of the best snow, waves and coconuts. Then there's the running of his own event, The Arctic Challenge, being a gardening dad or a distinctly skilled soccer player.. His highest air record from 2007 still stands proud to this day and if you haven't seen Terje's seminal signature movie "Subjekt Haakonsen" then go do your homework. Next year you can see him in Veeco's upcoming film "True To This".

VOLCOM EUROPE IN JAPAN
Photos by Jelle Keppens Who hasn’t thought about skating in Japan? Its people are very welcoming and respectful – and their skateboarders are like Samurai warriors. Our international squad was made up of Basque Country rippers Alain Goikoetxea, Dani Lopez de Ipiña and Alain Saavedra, Eniz Fazliov from Finland, and Axel Cruysberghs of Belgium. Together, they converged on Japan to explore the cities and countryside of the land of cherry blossoms. Our friends from Volcom Japan were expecting us, and were nice enough to show us the best spots Tokyo had to offer. Some were quite famous and had been documented many times, but others were totally unknown – and incredible. The city of Tokyo is home to some 13 million people, divided among 23 neighbourhoods, and the spot possibilities are infinite. Shibuya is one of the boroughs with the most spots. You head there, stroll around and the spots just pop up. It is good to go here at night since the lights from the buildings illuminate the whole place. Naturally, Goikoetxea destroyed every transition that got in his way, while Cruysberghs ground waist-high fences. Saavedra and Dani Lopez are free spirits who skated some of the most unexpected spots we encountered. After skating all day, these two would come down to the streets to check out nearby spots and skate more. Fazliov dominated as ever with his unique mix of power and grace- combined with his creative eye for unorthodox spots. Thanks to Saito, Buchi, Joji, Iceman and all the Volcom Japan crew.
