    Volcom Super Collider Returns to Fun Fun Fun Fest

    Volcom and Fun Fun Fun Fest are proud to announce that with the help of local ramp builder, Ryan Corrigan of HOLDONHEREWEGO and the Austin-based nonprofit, Project Loop, we will again lead the charge in building the Volcom Super Collider for the FFF Fest skate event this year. The super ramp, designed by legendary skateboarder Remy Stratton, debuted last year to rave reviews from athletes and spectators alike and has now become an integral part of the action-sports experience at FFF Fest. "The supercollider, like a music stage, is also fun to look at even when no one’s on it. And then, there is that moment when the team jumps on deck with their boards in hand and the skate session explodes into some of the nastiest shredding ever, combined with the Fun Fun Fun Festival sights and sounds all around, I just can’t wipe the smile off my face," says Volcom VP of Skateboarding Remy Stratton. Volcom will also welcome back its renowned skate team for a series of demos throughout the Festival weekend. This years lineup includes: • Axel Cruysberghs • Ben Raemers • Caswell Berry • Chris Pfanner • CJ Collins • Collin Provost • David Gonzalez • Dustin Dollin • Grant Taylor • Louie Lopez • Ryan Sheckler • Rune Glifberg Tickets for the 10 annual Fun Fun Fun Fest set to take place November 6-8 in Austin, TX are now available at funfunfunfest.com and check out last years action from Fun Fun Fun Fest

    Psychic Migrations: Australia

    Volcom Stone's latest feature surf film, Psychic Migrations, is set to release in September 2015 and we are unveiling some of the remote locations where the movie was filmed, along with a chance to win an all-expenses-paid trip for you and a friend to the Global Premiere in Newport Beach, CA. on September 17, click here to enter. Mitch Coleborn and Ozzie Wright didn't need to go far to film for this Psychic Migrations trip to Australia. Natives to the country, Mitch and Ozzie were stoked to get some filming in for the movie close to home and score some epic barrels (and of course, airs). But that's not what you'll only be seeing from Mitch, Ozzie, and the rest of the PM crew, in fact, this movie has a different feel. Director Ryan Thomas  explains: "I try not to repeat myself from film to film. This one is going to be very different than, say, BS!, which was a little sarcastic. This one has a very different mood, and I hope people are with me on it." Mitch Coleborn and Ozzie Wright journey to the beach somewhere in Australia. Photo: Tom Carey Mitch Coleborn, aussie-livin'.

    Stop #6 of Volcom’s Wild in the Parks – Legacy Skatepark - Ottawa, ON Canada

    Before the contest we went to the Legacy Skatepark with Collin Provost, Daan van der Linden, Grant Taylor and Arto Saari. Stop #6 of Volcom’s Wild In The Parks tour pushed north of the boarder to Canada’s Legacy Skatepark in Ottawa, ON on Saturday August 8, 2015. Legacy skatepark is a 15-minute drive from the downtown sector of Canada’s capital city of Ottawa. The park’s rad history and grunge feel is something that cannot be replicated. The freewheeling spirit of that park allows a sense of “anarchy” back into skateboarding, which sometimes gets lost. Above all else, this is a super fun spot to rip and the locals do just that. On any given day you will see tranny guys blasting, tech guys melting minds, or even the occasional “large guy” game of skate. All these antics made for another impactful Wild In The Parks with our Canadian brethren. This frontside boardslide in the 14 & Under Division prelims was the first one Ben Pearson ever landed on the rail. Ben then made good on a promise to shuv out in finals later that day. Bailey Seager took 1st in the 14 & Under Division with tricks like this crook to backlip in zone 3. Taking home 1st in the 15-21 Division, Matt Racine slid this front blunt down the rail with ease. Brandon Brilliant finished 7th in the 15-21 Division with tricks like this crowd pleasing back tail down the hubba. Placing 2nd in the 15-21 Division, Nico Labbé pulled this back lip shove 2nd try in finals. Caswell's Choice, Kirk Roach, kept it calm and collected during the contest. He made this clean kickflip on the double set in prelims and landed a 6th place finish in the 15-21 Division. Earning himself 3rd in the Open/AM Division, Nolan Saumure pulled this coast-to-coast nose manual nollie flip out no more than 1 minute into finals. Local ripper and the skate teams guide through Ottawa, Mitch Barrette, killed it with this salad grind across and down to place 4th in the Open/AM Division. Riley Cronin dropped this laser flip banger on the double set and placed 5th in the Open/AM Division. Jayden Bono was ripping all day with killer tricks like this 180 switch crook to regs down the rail. He took home 2nd in the Open/AM Division. Jamie Bennett took the top spot for the Open/AM Division with a grip of tech tricks. He battled this full cab flip down the double set in prelims and proved he could get it again during finals. Results: 14 & Under Division: 1st: Bailey Seager 2nd: Cayde Mckinstray 3rd: Ben Pearson 4th: Logan Cruickshank 5th: Owen Genier 6th: Matt Steven 7th: Jahiem Rockwell 15 – 21 Division: 1st: Matt Racine 2nd: Nico Labbé 3rd: Jonah Melnyk 4th: Scott Lauzon 5th: Josh Warner-Jacobs 6th: Kirk Roach 7th: Brandon Brilliant Open/AM Division: 1st: Jamie Bennett - $250 2nd: Jayden Bono - $150 3rd: Nolan Saumure - $100 4th: Mitch Barrette 5th: Riley Cronin 6th: Damien Derby 7th: Noah Cleroux Caswell's Choice – presented by The Skateboard Mag:  Caswell Berry will award his favorite competitor from each stop of the 2015 Wild in the Parks tour to jump in the van with the Volcom team and shoot a photo to be featured in The Skateboard Mag with the footage to be featured on The Berrics! Stop #6 winner: Kirk Roach Next Stop: The Edge Skatepark, Taunton, MA – August 30th, 2015! Click here for more info.

    Interview with Maud Le Car

    We had a chance to catch up with our very own Maud Le Car this week to ask her about her strong quarter final finish at Copa El Salvador Impresionante. Here's what she had to say... Was this your first trip to El Salvador? Have you surfed or heard of this wave before? This was my first trip to El Salvador and all I heard about this wave of Punta Roca, the wave of the contest, was that it's an amazing long right, a world class wave in super warm water. What to you like about surfing this wave?  I like surfing this wave because it's just so rippable. I love long rights and Punta Roca is a point break so it's always breaking in the same place with a long wall all the way down until the end of the wave. You can make so many turns in the pocket, it's just paradise. What are/were your favorite things about this trip? My favorite things about this trip were first the wave of Punta Roca and the fact that I made a result but more so that I had the opportunity to show my surf. I learned a lot during this contest about myself and the way I abord contest. What made the difference, why did you do so well at this event?  I think what made the difference in this contest was the way I changed my vision of competing. I started this year in 5th and 9th place and expected others good results to qualify in the world tour 2016. I put so much pressure on myself, I couldn't even just do my surf during a heat… I had been losing on the first round on the last 3 events and that was really frustrating. It was hard to see my dream for the qualification this year go a little bit farther away every first round I didn't make. I realized that whatever the results, what I love the most is just surfing and the amazing feeling surfing gives me. The simple fact that to surf makes me feel so alive and happy is the most important thing for me. So I went to El Salvador just to HAVE FUN and without expecting or waiting for a result. I think I did well because I was enjoying my heats and was just thinking about destroying the waves and not about the result. Tell us what you were thinking about while in your heat(s)? And where are you off to now? It's weird but during my heats I was thinking about nothing! I was just breathing, waiting for the waves and once the wave was there I just focused on surfing my best - limitless- Now I am off to France, my "second home", and I am happy to be back training and I am super motivated for upcoming events in France and the last 6000 in Pantin. I am going to stay on the same good vibes and do my best to have fun. Do you plan on traveling to El Salvador again? Why? For sure I will be back in El Salvador if the contest is ON next year! Or maybe for a surf trip to do a surf video… Such fun waves in Salvador and there are many good spots for great footage and practicing on a really great rights.

Psychic Migrations: Central America
Volcom Stone's latest feature surf film, Psychic Migrations, is set to release in September 2015 and we are unveiling some of the remote locations where the movie was filmed, along with a chance to win an all-expenses-paid trip for you and a friend to the Global Premiere in Newport Beach, CA. on September 17, click here to enter. Balaram Stack, Carlos Munoz, and Mike Gleason journeyed to Central America to film for their upcoming movie. And what a trip it was. They scored amazing waves with the help of some local knowledge, crazy unpredictable slabs, and a whole bunch of great footage for the movie. Some words about the Central America trip Carlos Munoz: "I said, 'Look, if we go there we're gonna have the same footage as everybody else, so we should try something new and stay here.'  We made that decision as a group because we're all in the same boat. Sometimes you get people thinking negative on a trip and it doesn't work out. But on this trip, no one felt like, 'Oh, this guy is getting more than me.' Everybody was nice, doing their jobs and treating each other like family... no ego." Mike Gleason: "There's reefs, beachbreaks... a good mix of stuff, and everything came together for that trip. The swell just kept building and extending itself. My original ticket was for seven days, and we were in [Central America] for two weeks. And there were waves the whole time." Balaram Stack: "I was psyched to go on a trip strictly for video. That was my first real movie trip." Photo: Ryan Craig Carlos Munoz tucks into a cozy Central American barrel.

A few months back, Nate Tyler and Yago Dora set out on a trip to the West Indies to film for Psychic Migrations, and what we got back from the trip was an epic collection of airs, mystical adventures, and weird moments. The pairing of Nate and Yago was the perfect duo. They kept feeding off the air game of one another and went blow-for-blow, trying to one-up the other on the next wave. This trip was different than previous Volcom movie trips where you'd have interviews with the director, Q&As, routine movie requests, etc. It was all surfing and exploring the land, which they did a lot of. Getting lost on the way to the beach, but feeling perfectly fine with taking a new route seemed to be a common theme on this trip. "Something that's been repetitive over the last few movies: BS!, Creepy Fingers, The Bruce Movie — was the interviews. There won't be any interviews in this one. It's going to be more of a cinematic odyssey," says Director Ryan Thomas. Nate, lift off in the West Indies. Photo: Tom Carey Nate & Yago, same place, different priorities.
