True To This - Volcom HQ - World Premiere Tour Kick Off!

March 1st, 2014 - Volcom HQ, Costa Mesa, CA: Volcom Kicks off the "True To This" World Premiere Tour with a massive event at the Costa Mesa headquarters.

When Volcom was founded in 1991, it was the first company to combine skateboarding, surfing and snowboarding under one brand from its inception. This way of life influenced the anti-establishment style and attitude that defined a generation. The cultural phenomenon was best captured when Volcom released "Alive We Ride" in 1993: a film documentingthe raw excitement and spontaneous creativity inherent to the lifestyle. Twenty-one years later, with the release of "True To This", Volcom again captures the energy and artistry of board-riding in its purest forms. Shot all around the world and showcasing iconic athletes, "True To This" is a tribute to the movement that inspired a generation and the people and places that embody that spirit today.

An epic film deserves an epic party and not even the torrential rains, thunderstorms and power outages could stop that from happening. An estimated 5000 people showed up to get a first look at the film, party with the volcom team and rock out to the sounds of Dahga Bloom and Church of Sun. Five hours and 50 kegs later just about everyone agreed it was one of the best premieres they had ever been to. If you missed it there is a good chance you can catch the film at a tour stop near you! Check out volcom.com/truetothis for a full list of premiere locations and pre-order your limited edition "True To This" Box Set!

Searching For Shade Chapter 2: Skating in Oman

brightcove.createExperiences(); Words by Roberto Aleman Photos by Roberto Alegria Spots abound in Oman, and most of them are gleaming marble. I think we got kicked out only once in a fortnight. All of the Omani people were very friendly and surprisingly accommodating when we were skating in front of their businesses or homes -- they just enjoyed watching something they had never seen before. The city of Muscat is blooming and the skate spots pop up at a similar pace. The old town by the harbour is an incredible cluster of narrow streets and local shops with scents, colours and an atmosphere that I will never forget. The food was incredible, and the beer appeared just at the right time. In Islamic countries you must respect the rules and two such rules were not to drink in public or to remove your shirt. It is seen as a lack of respect. We wished that we could have had the time to skate more spots, but we had to leave many unconquered due to the extreme heat and the consequent lack of energy! See more photos below from Roberto Alegria Ben Raemers got hurt early on the trip but he did get this boardslide down a triple set hubba The crew rarely got kicked out and the locals really embraced what they were doing out there!

#MusicMonday || Goldroom

We are such huge fans of Goldroom's album "Embrace"! It sounds like a shimmery slice of laptop disco that isn't quite a dance ballad nor a full-on pop song. Instead, "Embrace" registers somewhere in between those two poles, with stereo beats amply orchestrated by tom-tom flourishes and well-placed synth ripples.    Listen Here :: http://bit.ly/1t6bMJe

SEARCHING FOR THE SHADE - CHAPTER 1: SKATING IN OMAN

By Roberto Aleman Sometimes you have to pay to play; the price of sharing a once-in-a-lifetime journey through the mystical land of Oman was enduring temperatures hot enough to fry an egg on the pavement – literally. Eniz Fazliov, Daan Van Der Linden, Harry Lintell and Ben Raemers stepped up to the plate and traded sweat for experience during a week cruising the sultanate. With practically every country from north to south and east to west already explored, Oman continued to be one of those countries which for some reason no skate team has ever visited – until now. We arrived late at night and already the scorching heat was a system shock. We knew that during the night the temperature was as good as it would get, so we didn‘t even want to guess how it would be during the day. Come morning, we awoke to 45ºC heat that was much more intense than we could have imagined. It was hard to leave the hotel and even breathing outside proved challenging, it was like inhaling fire! That said, we were all excited to be in a country we had never been to before, and felt honoured to be the first ones with the privilege of exploring it. Soon a decision was made; we would rent a generator and skate at night. To be honest, in the end it didn't really matter. The days were too long, the nights were too short and the burning heat was everywhere, all the time. In the end we decided to skate all day with breaks in between to go to the beach or to an oasis in the desert! Check back on Thursday, August 28, for the second chapter of Searching For The Shade, Volcom in Oman. Thanks Red Bull for the support. The Crew Daan Van Der Linden, Gap 50-50 © Roberto Alegria Eniz Fazliov, Frontside Flip © Roberto Alegria Even though Ben got injured on the first few days of the tour, he enjoyed the whole trip like a kid. Daan bet he could frontside noseslide this rail first go. Word is bond and he collected some Omani Rials. In a little shopping centre we found these perfect black marble ledges to film lines on. Despite the heat, Eniz Fazliov skated the ledges non-stop until he was exhausted and locked this fakie nosegrind mid-line. Eniz skated every spot we went to. This hubba at the city's main stadium was perfect for this gnarly noseblunt. I do not know who bought the plastic guns, but at any time of the day you could end up with an arrow to the forehead. Just like Eniz. At every spot we went to in Muscat, a big crowd of people would gather to watch. I guess it's not a particularly common sight to have a bunch of Westerners jumping down handrails. Harry can adapt to all kinds of terrain, from the most technical spots to the gnarliest ones. He didn't want to leave this spot without leaving his mark on it, so after a few tries he stomped this flip crooks. Harry was one of the riders who skated the most during the tour. He filmed moves at every single spot we went to, and refused to leave this handrail without making this nosegrind. Like a big oasis in the desert, this is like the Central Park of Muscat. Thankfully, it is full of spots and Harry put down this switch flip on one such gem. Roberto came but had an injured ankle the whole time. He still managed to walk on water, however.

Eli Hannemen, Dylan Lehmann, and Jackson Bunch lead the charge at the 1st Pufferfish stop of the year!

The first stop of the Pufferfish Surf Series once again landed on the beautiful Hawaiian Island of Maui at Lahaina Harbor. There was plenty of sunshine and perfect little waves for the frothing Groms. We gave the competitors free lunch and showered them with tons of free giveaways just for coming down and hanging on the beach. The pros surfed their little brains off and when it was all said and done, Dylan Lehmann took the $500.00 first place prize and the coveted Golden Ticket solidifying his spot at TCT Champs in April. Check below for full contest details and all the winners. This girl is two! Take a second and think about what your were doing when you were two, because I bet it wasn't this! Eli Hannemen surfed on another level all day and went on to win the Groms division. @revdsurf is a new supporter of the TCT and we are pumped to have them on board! Dante Silva laying one down during the semis. Borg on the grill means the kids fall in line and mind their manners. Jackson on a fun left hander with the famous "Trinity" sailing vessel in the background. Jadeo showing his apprentice the ropes of calling a perfect event. Monte Grant on a fun Lahaina set. Monte would take 4th in the Juniors! Bringing the Mayonnaise and Flour to the Islands. Jackson Bunch took over the squids division, which in Hawaii is quite a feat now a days. We had so many Squids that we had to break it down into two divisions. Flour face smash for the win! Dylan Lehmann letting the tail fly in the earlier heats. The winners with all their goodies. Kail Daly and Tai Van Dyke linked up on this little gem in the early morning light of the Harbor. The Squids talent at the Pufferfish is second to none here is another shot of 4 year old Squid Justin Roberson.
