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!

Psychic Migrations
Psychic Migrations: South 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. Ozzie Wright and Ryan Burch drifted to South America recently to film for Psychic Migrations and what they got was some uninhabited, ghostly waves. Predominantly left-hand point breaks, Ozzie and Burch thoroughly enjoyed these frontside sand-bottom playgrounds even with the water a little colder than they are used to. And like any odyssey, the most important step is the first one: location, location, location, and this place didn't disappoint. As Director Ryan Thomas puts it: "I was trying to focus on the landscape. That's where my head's at with this film. But when it comes down to it, it's a surf movie, and I think people will be pleased with the surfing in it." Ozzie Wright, somewhere in South Americas. Photo: Brian Bielmann Candid moment for Ozzie.

Interview with Coco Ho
We had a chance to catch up with our surf rockstar, Coco Ho, and ask her some questions. Here's what our girl had to say... Which waves/ spots currently on tour best showcase a surfers potential? I think different waves/locations on tour show strengths and weaknesses for every individual, but it seems every year the divide gets smaller and smaller, every surfer on tour these days is so well rounded in all types of waves and locations. Is there a wave that better showcases women’s vs mens?  Men definitely shine in waves of consequence like Tahiti and Pipeline and the women have really been stepping it up and showing the world how good they are at waves like Snapper and Bells. I think having events together the women have learned a lot from the men's tour in regards to innovative and progressive surfing in heats. These days it's not uncommon to see women throwing down big combos and airs in heats.  Name the most impressive moment on tour that’s happened so far this year (mens or women’s)? To be honest the most impressive moment would have to be what happened in the final at J-Bay. Impressive to see that another competitor, in this case Julian Wilson, putting their own life in jeopardy to save another competitor. This showcased how deep all the men and women's friendships are on this tour. To be put in a situation like that and what their natural instincts were in that moment - that's true heroism and that to me is the most impressive moment in surf to date, period. What is one note/ word of encouragement or advice you give to every single person you work with?  "POSITIVE reinforcement” I really want to instil in every surfer I work with a very strong self belief in their ability, no matter what the conditions are like or what score they need. That trust needs to come from them being confident in their own decision making. Having good preparation and sticking to a solid routine will see you compete at your best….. Training, do you do it? Ratio of training to actual surfing?  Yes train the body and the mind.  The tour is gruelling and you need to stay on top of your health if you are going to succeed also eating heathy is a must. Actual surfing is the best training you can do, but to get the edge then you need to work hard whether it be full on gym sessions, Swimming, Yoga etc   …….. "hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard” Name three toughest waves on tour to wire?  The Box (Margaret River), Chopes ( Tahiti), Pipeline (Hawaii) The three most fierce women’s competitors on the tour right now?  Sally Fitzgibbons, Carissa Moore and Courtney Conlogue

This past Saturday Dustin Dollin, Ben Raemers, Harry Lintell, Eniz Fazliov and Lois Pendlebury spent some time in the UK at Visions Festival – a Real Life Happening spread across several venues in Hackney, London. Following on from two critically acclaimed and sold out years, the festival hosted a whole range of happenings from the East London Print Makers screening onto our shirts to the Fat White Family band, The Hinds and more playing killer shows in this third year sold out event making the whole thing a blast from start to finish. Volcom also took along our two prize winners who hung out with the crew for the day after winning Volcom Brand Jeans, travel, hotels, guest list tickets and plenty of beers. Matthew Rutherford -­‐ Prize Winner: “Festival tickets, travel, hotel, jeans. I’ve been looking forward to the bands, the food and the beer. You can’t beat this can you, really?" The Fat White Family smashed through a killer set with their frontman Lias getting well amongst it all with the crowd. Our Finnish connection, Eniz Fazliov enjoying the Visions outdoor space… …With our Aussie connection Dustin. The Visions blimp flew high and mighty all day above the festival. Our contest winners Matt Rutherford and Joe Seager sank a few beers with Dustin and lurked heavily with us throughout the festival. Good times! Lois Pendlebury and Harry Lintell. A couple of teeth short. Dustin sees downtime, Lois sees playtime. No caption required Our pal and PR master, Leanne trying to work out what trouble Harry’s hijinks will land them in next. The party crew outside the Oval Space venue. Low key Raemers. Quietly fuelling the fire… Theres something out there. Claw Marks really, really know how to put on a show. Hanging from the rafters. Literally. London Fields in between shows. Dustin & Eniz take five… Always on. Dustin kept everyone entertained – especially our two new mates. The face of a man with a plan REDDOS! Stretching before hitting the next show. That’s some serious knowledge! Ben Raemers. Taxi service in full swing.

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
