    A Candid Photo Journal: Puerto Rico w/ Noa, Yago, Droid, Mauro

    Puerto Rico has been an increasingly popular destination for surfers around the world ever since the 1968 World Surfing Championships were held there, and for good reason. Along with the hundreds of reefs, points and tropical beaches, favorable winds to the north, and crystalline blue water, its diverse natural scenery and renowned traditional cuisines make this Caribbean island a favorite among many. As a surfer, you're focusing most on the waves. But what other advantages does Puerto Rico have? Crowds? Those are ubiquitous these days, so we can throw that out. Hazards? There are always a couple. But when you go down the list of notable spots, from Parking Lots to Maria's to Los Tubos to Middles to Aviones (the list goes on), you're sure to score some waves any season you visit. Right? Wrong. Maybe that's right, but not for Noa Deane, Yago Dora, Andrew Doheny, and Mauro Diaz. Noa, Yago, and Andrew recently travelled to Puerto Rico to meet up with Mauro (who lives in PR) and Richie Olivares (Volcom's Global Surf Team Manager) to try and score some clips for a new edit. After driving around a ton searching for waves, taking a mini jet to a neighboring island, and returning to the same fruitless conditions, the boys needed to shift their focus. And they did. When you have a diverse group like this, you are never bored. From Noa's 'welcome to the team' surprise, to the sharpie incidents, to the Pelican Man, there was no shortage of memorable times. See below for a Q&A from the guys, along with a selection of behind-the-scenes and lifestyle film photos from photographers Tom Carey and Scott Stinnett. WEIRD? Meeting the Pelican Man, who literally could talk to the pelicans and tell them what to do, seriously. I guess he was featured on the National Geographic cover once. He would rescue wounded pelicans and by the time we met him he had a full flock under his wing. CREW? Droid and Noa were inseparable the whole trip, constantly making music, writing songs, playing guitar. While Yago would just quietly eat his candy and then boost eight foot airs. Mauro was just soaking it all in and was stoked to be there. FOOD? Meal of the trip was Pinchos? Peenchos? I dunno how to spell or pronounce it, but it's basically sketchy 'chicken' on a stick and sold on the side of the road. DRINK? Drink of the trip was Pina Coladas! So many Pina Coladas. FAVORITE? Favorite moment of the trip was when everyone conspired to welcome Noa to the team by smashing a pie in his face. So while Noa, unknowingly, jammed out on his guitar, Yago snuck up behind him with a pie and smashed it in his face! I think Richie yelled "welcome to the team, grom!" and then Noa smeared more of it all over his face and started chugging whip cream while everyone cheered. It was great. SHARPIE? If you fell asleep early enough, Noa and Droid would hunt you down with a sharpie and vandalize your face. I think Nate Leal got the worst of it. SURF? It was full moon when we were in Tortola and the main spot we surfed the whole trip was in front of a shanty bar called Bombas, which was literally held together by string and beach wood and halfway underwater already. It looked like a big enough wave would knock the whole thing down. They had a legendary party on the night of the full moon and they were serving some beverages that made us hallucinate. It was wild!   Below photos: Tom Carey Camera: Canon AF35M & Disposable Cheers, mon! Yago, Noa, and Droid taking down some Red Stripes pre-flight. Beer of choice for El Caribe. Droid loves to sleep. Is he sleeping here? Here's Noa wondering the same thing. Small planes are convenient (and sketchy) when you need to jump from island-to-island to search for waves. Grid-locked! You can bet on Yago to always be prepared for a surf. We also discovered he always has extra fin keys. Good man to bring on a trip! Tradewinds in Puerto Rico can sometimes make for chilly weather. But Tradewinds or not, sunny or cloudy, Noa is always rockin' his favorite jeans. Mauro Dora and Yago Diaz?! Surf trips sound so fun, right? Especially to places far from home, and they are. But, people forget it's full of multiple airports, long car rides, lack of sleep, and sometimes getting skunked on waves. Here's Droid at the culmination of it all. Noa trying to make the car rides a little more entertaining for the group. After flying-high all week, Yago indulges on a couple glasses of vino on his last night of the trip. Nate Leal and Scott Stinnett (background left & right), are the go-to filmers for the Volcom Surf Team. These dudes are always on it! What we can take away from this photo is that more sunscreen was needed! Yago channeling some Tony Alva? Scott Stinnett. Cops are always on the lookout. "Yeah, it's a bit windy, but..." Sleeper boy. Noa knocked out from rocking too hard and drinking too much water. Droid's bringing back the classic Black Fly's look. Y'all been to Pusser's? Phone rings... "It's Ozzie! Oh, snap, my rent's due!" House view. Droid sometimes sleeps with his eyes open. It's creepy, but pretty funny! Yes, airports are full of freaks! The name of this airplane is quite accurate. Whatever you do, don't look down! Scared, psyched, confused, or all the above? Touchdown! This place ruled. Yago always packing the late night snacks. This dude loves chocolate. Droid rockin' the Mag Vibes Stoneys and Yago rockin' the Macaw Mods! Mauro Diaz is always Gozando! (Having a good time.) Noa greeting the Shark's Cove of the Caribbean! Why did we have a fart machine? Who knows. But when you play this thing through a mini amp, it will have you in tears. This literally went on for a couple hours... Nate, bummed his phone broke and couldn't Tinder. The pie in the face wasn't enough, and Noa wanted more! Noa making Richie and Droid some tasty treats. Egg in hole? Egg in basket? Whatever it was, it ruled. Noa loves to prank people, and here is proof! So, don't fall asleep before him. Looks like Tom Carey didn't get the message. Checking emails? On Instagram? Whatever, it's too late for photos. Noa's first boards with the Stone! Yes, Droid sleeps with his guitar, day and night. Below photos: Scott Stinnett Cameras: Yashica T4 and Widelux Boarding the mini jet. Yago's candy stash. Airport lobby jam sash with Droid and Noa. Maybe just Droid. Droid, zorched. Beers and champagne. Why not?! Seriously lost! Tom Carey trying to figure out where they are while Noa sleeps one off. Mind surfing. We did that a lot due to the lacking of waves. Few spots had potential, and we found some fun waves, but not a ton. Everyone wants a photo with Droid. Mauro Diaz. Checking this spot called Middles, which had a couple waves on offer. Yago Dora. This is Tortola. And it's an amazing place to visit. Free samples of Pina Coladas on the house! Noa and Droid. This was the last night in Puerto Rico. Full crew! These rocks were super sharp, but made for some cool, Mars-lookin' landscape. Droid and Noa taking in the amazing view we had. What a way to wake up. Droid. Yago, the pelican whisperer. OK, Noa is a pelican whisperer, too. Yago, Noa, Droid, trying to write some songs in the lobby. You can see Droid here has taken a new approach to the word "downtime." Downtime again with Droid. Cool path we found to some waves! Droid resting his eyes. Droid jam session. Droid sleep session. Yago with somewhat of a swan dive. Noa and Droid hanging out on the porch of our spot. Found a dude who was driving this and asked if we could take some pictures with it. He was stoked, and more than willing to let us do it. Thanks, man, this is rad! So sick. Sincerely, yours truly. The Pelican Man hooked us up with some free lessons on how to care for them and feed them. It was actually pretty cool, and Noa and Yago turned out to be experts at the trade. Noa mid-jump, or fall, or step-off, or whatever. Not a very enthusiastic jump, but we'll take it! Buddies. Noa and Yago enjoying the Caribbean. Cool angle of Yago floating in the sea. Yago. Mauro showing us some spots. Room with a view! Yago. See you, dudes, next time!   Related stories: Indo Boat Trip with Volcom Surf Team - Candid Photo Journal Episode 3 of Welcome To Water, Indonesia - Candid Photo Journal Hawaii Campaign Shoot - Candid Photo Journal

    Interview with Alec Majerus on Cancel History

    About a month or so ago we had an idea to have a skateboarder, surfer and snowboarder do all 3 board sports in the same day to celebrate the release of our Cancel History collection. Southern California is one of the few places where we could actually pull this off, so we enlisted skateboarders Alec Majerus, Omar Hassan, legendary snowboarder Jamie Lynn and surfer Noa Deane to hit the slopes of Mt. High, waves of Newport Beach and our very own skatepark here at Volcom HQ. Outfitted in original Volcom tee designs from the 90's it was just like the old days, 20 plus years later, but the vibe and true Volcom spirit was still the same. Snowboarding, surfing and skateboarding in the same day is no easy task, so we decided to have a brief chat with Alec Majerus, who he was actually snowboarding up in Big Sky, Montana with his family, to get his take on the day. Hey Alec, how is it going what you been up to? Good man, just been skating and snowboarding a lot lately. We know your rip on a skateboard, but how long have you been snowboarding and surfing? I've been snowboarding since I was like 8. I've only surfed a few times though Alec spraying powder at Mt. High I heard you and your friends were psyched on snowboarding, surfing and skating in the same day, have you ever tried to do that before? Nah I haven't done that before. It's always been a goal of mine. What was the hardest part? The snowboarding, surfing or skating? The surfing was so hard because the waves were pretty big and I was getting smoked Noa Deane and Alec getting ready to surf. How much did you snowboard back home in Minnesota? I used to do a lot of backyard snowboarding growing up because I couldn't skate. A lot of people say snowboarding and skateboarding are very similar but still different, what are your thoughts? Do you find snowboarding easier since you rip so hard on a skateboard? Yea I think if you can skate you can easily learn to snowboard and vice versa You’ve skated some pretty monster rails but have you ever hit one on a snowboard? Yea I lipslid and 5050 on a 16 when I was younger Noa, Alec and Omar post surf sesh I remember you were living in a studio apartment in Huntington Beach with all your Minnesota homies for a minute. Did you ever surf when you were living by the beach? Nah, I didn't surf until I moved to Costa Mesa. Wish I would have took advantage of that though! Between the dudes you did this epic day with, Jamie Lynne, Noa Deane and Omar Hassan, who were you more impressed with as far watching them do a board sport they’re not known for? Noa said he had never snowboarded before and we took him to the top and he did it without falling. I was tripping on that. After snowboarding and surfing Alec still had enough fuel in the tank to pop off the walls. Lastly, what do you got planned for the rest of 2017? Aren’t you putting working on a homie video? I don't know man, the homie bailed back to Minnesota and is over filming so that's botched. Filming a part with Ant Travis though.

    Tetsunori Tawaraya Collaborates with Volcom on Capsule Collection

    It all started on a Volcom design field trip to Tokyo in August 2015. Random explorations led the crew to a vintage boutique called Birth Death, where one of our designers came across a killer 'zine. Unfortunately, that particular one wasn’t for sale. But its raw, original style made an impression, so upon returning to Costa Mesa, the crew found the 'zine online and bought a copy. As it turned out, the mysterious figure behind this intriguing piece of handmade printed matter was artist and musician Tetsunori Tawaraya. With a bit of research, the design team tracked him down, connected, and started working out plans for a collaboration. While hailing from Japan, Tetsunori has roots in Southern California, having lived in San Diego in the late 90's and early 00's, a move he made following the life changing experience of seeing The Locust live on their first Japanese tour. It was while living in San Diego that Tetsunori began drawing people's portraits on the streets and playing in the bands Dmonstrations and 2UP, which naturally led him down the path of punk flyers that he made to promote his and other local bands shows in San Diego. During that time in San Diego Tetsunori continued drawing comics, his first love since growing up in Japan, setting up shop at punk shows to sell his handcrafted handbound Xerox'd comics 'zines - many of which were reprinted and made available again in 2015 in a 400 page tomb entitled Tetsupendium Tawarapedia. The book is unfortunately sold out, but Tetsunori still continues to make his comic 'zines, and was kind enough to make 60 limited edition 'zines that are available as a free gift with the purchase of any piece from the Tetsunori capsule collection on volcom.com (enter the code TETSUNORI at checkout). Now back living in Japan and still playing in 2UP as well as a new project called Hangaku, Tetsunori continues drawing comics, flyers and the occasional album art commission (see Thee Oh Sees' 2015 release Mutilator Defeated At Last) and lately has been bringing his 2d creations into the 3d world with series of dolls. In March of 2016, on their next trip to Japan, the Volcom design team was finally able to meet Tetsunori in person. Check out his scene, his studio. He showed them the Volcom X Tetsunori artwork in progress and then they all went out for a night of live music in Shinjuku. After the artwork was completed and the details of the capsule collection were sorted, the design team took one more trip to Tokyo, this time to hand deliver samples of the finished product to Testunori. He was stoked. And we are, too. This stuff kills. Shop it here.

    The Volcom Garden is Volcom’s newest venture in the world of music and art. Signing a long-term lease on the thriving East Side of Austin, TX, Volcom has doubled down on its commitment to creative liberation. The Volcom Garden, located at 1209 East 6th Street, will feature a full-time art gallery, curated by skate-art legend and Austin resident Michael Sieben, an indoor stage with backline and recording capabilities, a one-of-a-kind boutique and a skate-able feature in the expansive backyard. The Garden will serve as a creative hub for the local scene with an emphasis on both regional and global creativity and will facilitate regular art shows and music events. Having already played host to Australian street artist Anthony Lister's only 2016 U.S. appearance in November, the Volcom Garden this week will be turned over to our friends at Fader to house their world-renowned and influential Fader Fort during the 2017 SXSW Music Festival. "We've always been a fan of The Fader Fort's approach to curating a diverse mix of music and creativity," says Mike Aho, Volcom's Global Creative Director, who is also an Austin resident. "We're honored to have Fader as our first big event." While entrance to the Fader Fort is invite-only, select performances will be streamed online at thefader.com. "Volcom has a long history of supporting people who are passionate about what they do. The Volcom Garden is a long-term commitment to showcasing and supporting people's creative energy, whatever that might be," says Volcom EVP of Global Marketing, Ryan Immegart.

    Volcom Took over Hotel Steyne for a Week of Madness!

    Last week Volcom was thrilled to take over Hotel Steyne in Manly, New South Wales, Australia for Riders Week, a week full of art, music, skating, parties, giveaways, movie premieres, team signings, and more! Thousands of people cruised through all week to catch live paintings from artists such as Anthony Lister, Gemma O'Brien, and Ozzie Wright, jam to some rad tunes from Ozzie, Noa Deane's band Blister, Andrew Doheny's band Power Lunch, Bleeding Knees Club, and others, and catch a glimpse of some mini-ramp skating from dudes like Pedro Barros, Jackson Pilz, Grant Taylor, Dane Burman, and CJ Collins. But that's not all. This seven day event had much more to witness, and we've got it all for your below. Gemma O'Brien timelapse @ Hotel Steyne... Anthony Lister took to the wall to spray paint an eagle... All photos by Andrew Christie (unless otherwise noted) NIGHT 1 - Monday, February 27 Monday was the launch of the Volcom X Hotel Steyne Riders Week, and we kicked things off immediately with one of Australia's beloved characters, Ozzie Wright showing off his skills with the spray cans. He was posted up above the courtyard spray painting a live mural on a row boat for the keen crowd to enjoy. The pool room was emptied for the crazy-talented Gemma O'Brien to work her magic, painting a huge mural which wrapped around the walls of the room. The skate ramp was set up and a couple of our team riders: Dane Burman, Jackson Pilz and Shane Azar, shredded for an hour to a beer-thirsty crowd. Our nightly trivia, hosted by MC Azar, ignited where we saw some super frothed groms and adults walk away with some insane gear, which helped fuel those stoke levels. Hotel Steyne was the place to be all week long! Jamie Browne Volcom tee pictured. Mitch Coleborn, Andrew "Droid" Doheny, Ozzie Wright, and Noa Deane watching the skate team on the mini ramp. Gemma O'Brien working on the mural she created in the pool room. Mitch and Ozzie, some good 'ol fashion hang time! Miguel Tudela (left), Noa Deane (middle), Ozzie Wright (right). Ozzie painted the Surf Boat on the roof! Part of the crew from Ozzie's perspective while he was up there painting. Torpedo-lookin' boat + Noa Deane's surfboard on display. Noa hangin' with Volcom Skate Team riders Jackson Pilz + Reece Warren. Jackson on the mini. Dane Burman smith grinding the Volcom mini ramp at the Hotel Steyne. Jackson at it again. This ramp was a hot spot to be the entire week. Got super crowded, and wild, but managed to stay intact 'til the end. (We can't say the same for everyone who attended.) Mitch messing up Gemma's mural. JK, he lent a helping hand on the then-work-in-progress while she focused on the, let's say,  more important pieces. Yeah, let's go with that. Ozzie wanted to help, too, so he grabbed a brush and took to the wall. Once the night lights came on, the zombies awoke and things got weird. But, a good weird, of course. Gemma O'Brien, mural by day, mural by night! Getting there... Hotel Steyne was rad enough to Gemma do her magic, so here's her appreciation-piece, part of the entire mural. Gemma has a very distinct approach to her art. It's appreciated, and purposeful. Check out some of her tutorials HERE on calligraphy, typography, and more! Night 2 - Tuesday, February 28 Tuesday saw Gemma O'Brien put the finishing touches on her mural in the pool room, while Anthony Lister busted out the spray cans to paint a live mural for the onlookers in the courtyard. We saw lots of dudes showing off their talents on the mini ramp, and team rider Dane Burman even jumped on the ramp to roll with them and no doubt make their day. Gemma continued her mural on Night 2 of the event. She studied the piece for a long time to make sure everything was to her liking. ...is alive and well. It's crazy how you can start with a blank wall, use so much paint, make so much art, and leave the space looking like this. Gemma is a perfectionist, and it shows. Very fine lines and coordination between each segment. Anthony Lister painted a huge eagle in the middle of the hotel bar area. People were stoked to check it out and ask him tons of questions. A slight different approach to his art than Gemma, but nonetheless, equally as talented. The eagle and the Lister. Ozzie takin' a break from his project, hangin' with some of the boys. Volcom beer tap! The walls were plastered with some Volcom art from the ages! If you tell us you've never once said this in your early beer-drinkin' days, we'll tell you that's a lie. Groms were stoked to chat with Ozzie and Lister, and give it a go on the mini ramp. What do you think these dudes were talking about? Art? Skating? Sustainability initiatives? Probably the latter... Some of Newport Beach's finest made their way to Australia! Filmmaker Matt Tromberg and pro surfer Ford Archbold sharing some laughs (well, at least Ford is) with buddy Ozzie. Some onlookers at Lister's eagle. Done-zo. Creepers... Mitch loves this shirt.   Night 3 - Wednesday, March 1 The last couple of nights have been 6ft & offshore down at the pub! Wednesday night included the Boarders Skate store Mini Ramp Jam, Metal Neck 2 – The Bang Over movie premiere, followed by the Gold Coast garage rock band The Bleeding Knees Club, fronted by Alex Wall. Drinks were flowing, stories were shared, and everyone was shredding. Groms loaded up the ramp. Arm casts and all! Little buddy! Each night there was some trivia for rad prizes, and here is Volcom Australia's Shane Azar quizzing this grom in the foreground. Groms are always stoked on stickers! That, my friends, will never go out of style. The ramp was mini, but packed full of fun. The 'Best Trick Comp' at the pub went off! Dudes were trying all sorts of weird things, and in strange outfits. Keep scrolling... Crowd filled in, music turned up, and so did the competition! Mini ramp kickflip. This guy really set it off with dropping in from the second level. ...and continuing his run to the mini. That's one way to ride a ramp! The Hotel Steyne filled up every night by sundown. Can't tell if he's jumping off the second level, or if this is just a high air. Either way, the landing isn't looking promising. Beers and whistles! Sounds like the name of a bar. Is it? Mini shredders on the mini ramp gettin' in some action. What in the bejesus. 1 of 4 2 of 4 3 of 4 4 of 4 - Yep, we all saw that comin' No one was using this table, right? No one got seriously injured on this ramp. Although this table may have been destroyed. Raffle winner of Droid's surfboard. Stoked! Metal Neck 2 movie screening at the Moonshine Bar. The crowd was packed in tight, and the kids were all right! Euro skate bros, and a Greyson Fletcher photo bomb! Volcom surf team rider Miguel Tudela (stripped tee) and part of his crew enjoying the night. Someone looks like they're getting chewed out! In all fun, though, right? Fair go for dogs? Droid, droiding. Droid hangin' with Greyson Fletcher and friends. Volcom's VP of Surf, Brad Dougherty, flew over from California to hang with all the boys! Just some happy girls having some Coronas. What's wrong with that?! Nothing! Endless Coronas were on tap. Miguel Tudela and... friends! Night 3 fun! Couple dudes. More dudes. Some groms getting rowdy to the band. The Bleeding Knees Club performed at the end of the night. This is frontman, Alex Wall. Alex Wall The Bleeding Knees Club   Night 4 - Thursday, March 2 Thursday night included the Surfing World Reelers short film competition awards, Volcom X Vans Pro Skate Team mini ramp demo (which unfortunately got rained out after the first hour, but we still ripped), and to end the night we had the band The Mammals and Flower Truck rock out in the Moonshine Bar! He's an innovator. The innovator and Mitch Coleborn. David Vlug testing the new beer cozies. Ozzie's finished boat alongside Volcom team rider boards that were up for grabs! Boards from left to right: Mitch Coleborn, Ozzie Wright, Noa Deane. Tons of hats and totes were printed on all week and given out to the eager guests. Aime Maisse loves the night vibes! Jackson Pilz throwing his board around during the Pro Demo. Young ripper Ethan Copeland helped rally the crowd. Straight up! It was a solid night of skating... ...for most Night jams! The crowd got down to some epic tunes from some local artists. Volcom team rider CJ Collins is the demo KING! (photo: Anthony Mapstone) photo: Anthony Mapstone photo: Anthony Mapstone photo: Anthony Mapstone   Night 5 - Friday, March 3 Friday night was a little more mellow on the scale of the week, but nonetheless, still cranked out a good time. We had our daily trivia running with lots of prizes won and we saw the bands Los Tones supported by Jackie Brown Jnr. The night ended fairly early in order to get ready for the following night's end-of-week blowout with the heavy lineup (scroll down to see). Everyone loves promo girls. None other than legendary surfer Christian Fletcher showed up for a good time! This girl showing the boys how to dance and let loose! Some interesting moments happened. This was one of them. These boards were raffled off to a stoked crowd. Can you guess which one is Ozzie Wright's?! The setting was pleasant, the people were nice, and friends were made. The bands each night shifted the crowd into another mode. Was she starstruck, overcome with excitement, or scared? You be the judge.   Night 6 - Saturday, March 4 Saturday was turned up to eleven with 'The Paradise Club' party combined with STAB which went down at the Moonshine Bar with performances by Noa Deane’s band Blister, Andrew Doheny’s band Power Lunch, and Ozzie Wright! The entrance line for Hotel Steyne was one of the biggest lines ever seen and the night was definitely one for the history books! "Hurry, she's not looking!" What in the bejesus. Bati Rum mixers with the girls. Volcom X Stab's "Paradise Club" party @ the Moonshine Bar. Su Young Choi with the crew! One of the lucky board-giveaway winners! Mitch Coleborn's board winner! Ozzie Wright's board winner. This guy was the perfect fit for that board. He was stoked. Ozzie Wright kicked off the night in his classic white Ozzie shades. Noa Deane + Ozzie Wright jammed together to get the crowd off their feet. Check these dudes in the front. They're living it! Blister, Noa Deane's band, kicked off right after Ozzie. Lighting is A+ here. Noa Deane + his band Blister. Read more on Noa and Blister HERE. The crowd got so hyped off the tunes that the place nearly got shut down. Luckily, they were able to be tamed (the crowd, not the management) and the night continued long into the wee hours. Battle dance? Noa tuning his guitar before jamming to the rowdy and alcohol-infused crowd. How's that Volcom 90's tee?! Get yourself one HERE! Done-zo. Noa Deane. Droid's band Power Lunch was going on after Blister. Here's Droid gettin' some assistance from buddy Noa. Face paint, check. Not everyone naturally looked like this by Day 6 of the event, but some did. The boys. Christian Fletcher, Noa Deane, Greyson Fletcher, Ozzie Wright. Frontman for Power Lunch, Droid, gettin' into rhythm. Ozzie, front row at the Droid Power Lunch show! Droid 1 Droid 2 Little bit of that old school rock 'n rock channeling through Droid.

#3SOTYs1STONE by Jack Hyde Animations
We get a lot of submissions for the @volcomskate instagram and very rarely do we come across content that’s worth sharing. Prior to the Holy Stokes! a Real Life Happening video roll-out, animator Jack Hyde put together some rad animations of the footage for the gram and we were stoked on them. After Kyle Walker won Thrasher Skater of the Year, Daan van der Linden won European Skater of the Year and Jackson Pilz won Slam Skateboarding’s Australian Skater of the Year, we hit him up for some more! We also decided to interview Jack for a little behind the scenes look into what he does! Hey Jack! Thanks for doing this interview. First off who are you, where are you from and what do you do? Hey, thanks for asking! My name is Jack Hyde and I’m a freelance stop motion animator from the UK. I’ve been making animations for about 10 years with the majority of my work being online educational videos for Universities, Colleges etc. However in the last few years I’ve been making skate animations. They’re good fun to make and people seem to like them. How did it all start for you? What came first skateboarding or animation? Oh skateboarding for sure. I didn’t start animating properly till I was about 18/19. I started skateboarding when I was about 12 and skated pretty much every day for the next 6/7 years. This was in the early 2000’s so it was the days of Tony Hawk Pro Skater, Flip Sorry and Yeah Right! It was a good time. I haven’t skated for a long time now. I have a long term injury which means I can rarely do much exercise. I do still have a deck and on my good days I can have a good push along flat, just no tricks (not that I was any good at them anyway!). Seems like your animations on the gram have gotten some attention lately, we’ve seen brands like Emerica, eS, and even Thrasher Magazine giving you some love for your work. How did it all start? Did brand's notice your work then hit you up or did you send it to them first? When I first started I had no idea whether brands checked their emails, insta messages etc, it was hard to gauge whether they would ever be seen by anyone, you know? So I was bugging Thrasher (sorry!), figuring no one was actually seeing the messages, but they ended up getting back to me and posted one of my animations of Jaws. It kinda went crazy after that, I’ve had lots of nice messages from all over the world and from some of my favourite brands, so that’s been really cool. The éS work was just surreal. I grew up loving that brand so to be able to work with them was a real honour. When they first contacted me I actually didn’t realise it was them. I kind of scan-read a message on my phone from ‘esskateboarding’ and of course it’s all lowercase on Instagram with no accents, so it didn’t click. It was only later on, and after I had replied, that I suddenly thought, oh wow, that was éS! We used to make all of our ads by hand for a good part of our first 25 years and it was rather time consuming. You mentioned that the animations you did for #3SOTYs1Stone took about 500 stills, that seems crazy! How long do these animations usually take to produce and what is the process? They do take a fairly long time to make, and a lot of patience, but for me I think it’s worth it for the end result. I think it’s hard to replicate the stop motion look digitally. Don’t get me wrong, I love digital animation, but stop motion has a certain aesthetic, and that’s what I love about it. For the skate animations, I tend to export the original footage as stills at a slower frame rate than the original. I print them all out and then make a stop motion with them, taking a single photo at a time, replacing each photo on the table with the next one, and so on. The creative parts are done with a good old pair of scissors and glue. Behind the scenes of the @volcomskate animations. Over 500 printouts used for the colour animation. #3SOTYs1STONE #stopmotion A post shared by Jack Hyde Animations (@jackhydeanimations) on Mar 15, 2017 at 9:23am PDT What’s the most difficult project you’ve worked on in terms of animating? Or are they all more or less the same? That’s a good question. I made a music video for a band called The Computers many years ago. It involved little card cut outs of the band, animated in an old doll's house. It was an enjoyable process overall, but the actual animating was long, very fiddley, and pretty stressful. What I would say is that usually the actual animating part isn’t the most difficult, it’s the pre-production phase where you have to come up with an interesting idea with the footage and then work out the practicalities of how you will make that work in the stop motion environment. Alright time for a couple quick fire questions, Top 5 Skaters? Mark Appleyard (his Flip Sorry part is still my all time favourite to watch) Lacey Baker Leo Romero Jaws Jerry Hsu Top 5 Videos? Flip - Sorry Girl - Yeah Right Volcom – Holy Stokes! Vans – No Other Way éS – Menikmati Favorite Skateboard Graphic? I have always been a big fan of Chocolate deck graphics, they do some really great designs. However my favourite of the last few years has to be that Dennis Busenitz ‘Temple of Skate’ deck from Real Skateboards. I missed out on it when it was released and I was totally gutted, it’s beautiful! What are your plans or goals for 2017?? I made some animations for Lucas Beaufort’s DEVOTED skateboard documentary, so I’m really excited about the release of that. Other than that, just keep making animations and travel as much as I can. Thanks for the interview Jack, any thanks or shoutouts? A big thanks to éS and Jaws for helping me out over the last year. There’s no way I would be doing this interview if they hadn’t taken a punt on my work. Big shoutout to all the early 2000’s skaters from our small town of Ashburton, it may not have been the best park in the world, but we had a fun time regardless. Lastly, a massive thanks to Volcom for this interview. I loved making the animations, the footage I got to work with was solid gold!

Charly Quivront Lets Loose in Hawaii
Charly Quivront, aka The Cat, is not new to this whole Hawaii thing. The young French surfer has spent many winter seasons at the Volcom Hawaii Houses surfing his brains out, hanging with the house crew dudes like Tai Vandyke and Kaimana Henry, and scoring tons of photos and video clips along the way. This season, Charly met Gabriel Novis, one of Brazil's hottest surf filmmakers, and they instantly clicked. Gabriel was itching to work on a new project, and Charly was eager to get some fresh clips online. So the boys got to work in Hawaii and turned out this killer edit. We asked Gabriel what it was like working with Charly: I have been wanting to do a raw video part for a while. Inspired on those old skateboard films that we all grew up watching, and when I heard about this Volcom kid Charly Quivront staying in Hawaii for the winter, I jumped on the opportunity. It was the perfect fit. It was super fun filming with Charly and have the opportunity to stay at the Volcom House. The vibe is just insane over there, pretty cool place to be. Charly is a raw talent. The kid is true and surf needs more people like this. He knows how to mix high perfomance surfing with real fun sessions and Hawaii was the perfect set up for this rad sunny clip! photo: Tom Carey photo: Tom Carey Get To Know Charly Quivront Age: 21 Currently living: Hossegor Years surfing: 16 Sponsors: Volcom, ABC, FCS, Gorilla Grip, Maracuja Surf Shop Favorite spot: Lower Trestles (California) or Seignosse (France) Favorite country: Hawaii, but I need to go back to Indo Goals: Chasing good waves, having fun, and getting the best results on the QS tour! First board: BOUL surfboard made by my uncle for my third birthday Warm-ups: Listening to music when I get changed What gets you motivated to surf?

My name is Charly Quivront, some people call me le Chat. I would best describe my hometown as a good place to rest and see friends. I've traveled quite a bit, but by far the best place I've been is Hawaii because it's warm and there are fun waves everyday. But, by far the worse trip ever was to Canaries a couples years ago!

Why Blister? Why Anything? - Noa Deane gets "deep"
Don't call it surf rock! When Noa Deane isn’t surfin’ he can usually be found with a guitar in his hands channeling his alt-rock heroes Mudhoney and Melvins. Last September Noa recorded his first EP entitled barbie69 entirely by himself at his parents house in their kitchen and put it up on Bandcamp. Jamming the album for a while now, the more we listened, the more we wanted to know. So over the course of a few txt msgs we got Noa shine a little light on his music background. When did you first start playing music? What was the first instrument you learned on? When I was about 12, I had a red Fender Squire Stratocaster. You recorded the album in your parents house, what did you record on? Yeah it was in the downstairs kitchen using Garageband. You play guitar left-handed, but drum right-handed. Which hand do you write with? I write with my right hand. I guess I have a few wires crossed in my brain. Heard you own a cello, do you play that one regular or goofy? Bought one and never play it, haha. Any Aussie musicians you look up to or have influenced you? Inxs is sick and I like Silverchair too. Why Blister? Why anything? haha How’s the album doing? You only need to sell 35,000 to get a gold record in Australia, do you already know where you are going to hang yours? It's going alright. Sold $400 bucks worth, but I'll never sell that many. Haha Below's a little taste of Blister live last week in Manly, Australia during Volcom's epic week long takeover of the Hotel Steyne during Riders Week. Give Noa and Blister a follow on Instagram for more.

Louie Lopez wins the 2017 Tampa Pro!
We've watched Louie Lopez grow up over the years, from a little long haired tranny ripper to young tall street slayer who has style for miles. Fast forward to last weekend and we are very proud to call him 2017's Skatepark of Tampa, Tampa Pro CHAMPION! Once we saw him roll away from that fakie 360 flip at the end of his finals run we knew it was over. Louie was ripping all weekend, popping frontside 180's out of those back smiths with so much style and those alley-oop frontside flips over the hip were on lock! Watch his run below and click the images to see more photos from The Skateboard Mag and Transworld Skateboarding.

See Indonesia Like Never Before with Muklis Anwar and Bol
Surfing has long been synonymous with road trips. Before tide charts and surf cams, surfers trailed the coastlines in search of treasures. Treasures full of epic waves and empty lineups. Road trips were journeys of discovery, but also of adventure. Uncharted roads that were traveled 50 years ago by surf pioneers are still being traveled today, yet harder to keep secret from the herd. Time and technology has seen the perfect swell reduced to an alert on your phone, thus missing the road to discovery, and that first moment you feast your eyes on glory once known only by a few salty dogs. Captured by discovery, adventure, and waves, Volcom Indonesia team riders Muklis Anwar and Made Winada Adi Putra (“Bol”) packed their bags and boards and hit the open roads to Indonesia’s exotic eastern island of Sumbawa. For nine epic days of hopping ferries and cruising coastal roads, they reignited their love in the journey of finding waves, their appreciation for Indonesia, and the joy of discovering land and waves firsthand. Along their journey, the people they met, the cultures they witnessed, and the breaks they encountered could only be experienced through a rugged, rudimental road trip with an unfeathered sense of destination. It’s fair to say Eastern Roads is no ordinary surf video. It’s an epic travelogue of two surfers remembering that the journey itself is the destination. Reignite your desire for adventure, freedom and a surf-life long forgotten. Roadside break with a view. Shooting some behind the scenes. Muklis prepping his board. Bol, pre-shred. Muklis and Bol waiting until the swell picks up a bit before paddling out. Bol with a lofty punt, "Garuda" style. Couple fun ones at Cobbles. Muklis Anwar Like a postcard, right? Lakeys gives more than awesome waves. Stuck on an island. Waiting for the boat ride out. Muklis snags the first barrel of the morning. There were some fast drainers that morning. Bol layin' it down! It's not too often you see full-rail carves like these. Every wave party wave. Muklis in tube city. Muklis demonstrates your typical roundhouse, which seems like an antiquated maneuver these days. Nonetheless, it's a fundamental one which should be learned by every surfer. A lot of the time, this wave gave them a ton of speed so they could hit this end section and try lots of different tricks. Muklis goes for broke! Sunset happy hour. These are the days. Campfire fun. This is Lakey's iconic surf tower. Barrel #34 of the day for Muklis. It wasn't too crowded this day, so they were able to catch a ton of waves and just have fun. No worries for Muklis! Deeper you go, the more rewarding the barrel. Side-trekking by foot! Muklis taking a break from the journey and soaking it all in. Sunset view at Lakey Peak. Somewhere in Sumbawa.
