Balaram Stack in NYC - 4 Cities (Ep. 4), Volcom Surf
In our 4th and final "4 Cities" episode produced in collaboration with WhatYouth, we visit Balaram Stack in New York.

After dawn to well past dusk, New York City delivers
Volcom's fondness for summers in New York City stretches back to when the Skate Team would hole up in the city for weeks at time, as was documented in 2008's All The Days Roll Into One (), that was a glimpse behind-the-scenes into the constant ups and downs of trying to skate on demand in a hectic city. Today our trips to the city are shorter but more frequent, including this past summer's trip for the premiere of Holy Stokes! A Real Life Happening that included a solid afternoon traversing the city, followed by the Volcom X Antihero NYC skate mission in July to film for the last fall's Volcom X Antihero collaboration. Fresh on the heels of the Volcom X AntiHero trip, a new set of Volcom crew showed up to continue our NYC summer fun. Balaram Stack, Jordan Trahan, Arto Saari and Austin Amelio (of The Walking Dead Fame, and a true skater in his own right) joined Chris Pfanner who extended his stay for another couple days of madness. The plan? To take in as much of New York as possible the following day! Street spots, skate parks, underground bars, good eats, drinks and beaches were all on the list. Morning stoop life with Chris Pfanner in the Volcom Bleed Dot shirt The squad easily located their Airbnb by the broken chairs and destroyed skateboard decks littering the front patio from the skate team's stay for the Antihero shoot. Inside we were greeted to a bevy of leftovers including fruit, granola and anything else deemed too healthy for consumption by the skate team. All adult beverages however had been put to good use and the house showed signs of good times. We would be hard-pressed to out due them. Morning stretch in the Volcom Stone Made Atwell shorts and a pale wash solid tee. Stories of New York go something like: freezing in the winter, hot and muggy in the summer. Luck was on our side and we were blessed with sunny days and cool breezes. We headed to the BQE Lot first thing for a skate sesh. Getting grimy and trying a few tricks under the bridge is always fun. Pfanner ollied the cement launch ramp and Trahan filled his time with kickflip wallride to fakie attempts that had us scratching our heads. Next thing you know, a five-minute storm comes out of nowhere blasting gutter-dirt and rain into our faces. After seeking shelter, we rinsed off with an open fire hydrant spewing sweet relief from the reemerged sun, just like in the movies! Little rain can't stop the Pfann man from ripping! Antihero team must of been here too... Balaram in the Cross Mag tee finding shelter under the BQE during a quick afternoon shower. Where to next? Pfanner in the Tetsunori tee. Austin Amilio cooling off from the summer heat. The temperature can soar midday in New York and a bike is a great way to explore the city without the constant pushing of a skateboard. Balaram, a New Yorker since he was 5, showed us his way to the beach without breaking a sweat. Bikes and surfboards easily fit on the train to Long Beach too and before long we were amongst sand, blue water and summer breakers. Riding around on bikes is one of the best ways to explore the city. Balaram Stack in the Volcom New Future tee. Cruising through the streets. Should we take a train to the beach?! The Volcom Mod Tech Surf Bag is ready for anything. Down to the trains in the Shred Head pocket tee. Waiting for the train to Long Beach, NY. Austin Amelio taking in the down time on the way to Long Beach. Go ahead and Pet It tee. Made it! After a dip in the Atlantic, the new Long Beach Skate Park, opened in 2015, is a short ride opposite the beach. A fun little park with a flow section and a small bowl. Just watch out for the rent-a-cops who enforce code regulations with gusto! They’ll pour out a grown man's full beer on a hot day just to show their might! Back in the city and ready to ready to take in some libations? Dustin Dollin knows bars and recommended we hit an underground bar called Berlin. It was a fine time dancing shoulder to shoulder with only red lights illuminating the young crowd. We even saw Macaulay Culkin there, but he told us "no photos after midnight." That's a good policy to have... so with that we'll end the story of our day here. Visit New York City, skate! Head to Long Beach, swim and skate! Go to bars and dance underground! We did and we recommend it! Balaram takes a quick dip. Volcom Mag Vibes & Magxplotion Stoneys Boardshorts. Arto takes a break from behind the lens to have Pfanner blast over him at the little Long Beach Skate Park.

Michael Morrissey docking himself on the porch of the Volcom Pipe House pondering what to do on lei day #3. Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii helping make waste a resource! Director of Volcom's Psychic Migrations, RT, checking out the waves at the Beach Park. New Jersey's Pat Schmidt showed up for a few days (the weather was actually a bit chilly at times). Drone launching from the Volcom Pipe House to capture some free surfs during one of the many, many lei days. Early morning pre-start to competition. We were there for two weeks. The waves were either firing or big and stormy. This is the latter. Taken from the 3rd story of the Pipe House. Never a dull moment with Tai Vandyke and Burger! When the event was called off, thus presumed a lei day, the boys spread thin: searching for waves on another part of the island, golfing, getting ready for the event, or laying around the Pipe House watching movies. In this photo you can see Mitch Coleborn (left) and Fat Tony (couch) while a documentary was rolling. Tons of music documentaries were watched on lei days. Two that come to mind were of Keith Richards and Tom Petty. Volcom surfboard room at the Pipe House.

Assessing the conditions on the porch of the Volcom Pipe House: Kaimana Henry, Jason Shibata, and Makuakai Rothman.         "Are we on?!" -Everyone, every morning. Miguel Tudela psyching and strategizing before his heat. Besides a near-perfect 10-point ride, Miguel lost out in Round 4. The boss, Kai Borg, was there to hold it down from Day 1 to make sure everyone kept their cool. Kawai Lindo + Jason Shibata spotting a drainer down at Off The Wall! Head of Volcom Entertainment, Kurt Midness, flew over to hang with our musical guests for the event, Fat Tony and iLL Faded, and clock some solid Hawaii time. Fat Tony DJ'd at the Volcom Pipe House after competition days, and dropped an epic live performance at the Turtle Bay Resort one night. Volcom's North American Men's Marketing Director, Daniel Terry (left), didn't stop running around and taking care of business the entire two weeks we were there. The man means business, can't you tell?! Aloha! The boys enjoying some downtime before the event. Tai Vandyke (left), Volcom team rider and New Yorker Balaram Stack (middle), and well, we just call him Thor (right). More downtime, but this time it's personal! There was a VIP bar on the 3rd story of the Pipe House, and Balaram Stack took full advantage. Videographer Marc Chambers keeping the Hawaiian vibe alive! Fat Tony and iLL Faded keeping the house party jamming with non-stop tunes for hours. Volcom Stoned! Shot from the OG Volcom House looking at the Volcom Pipe House. Jason Shibata, Charly Quivront, and Imai Devault. Kai Borg assisting one of our filmers, Nate Leal, with the door into the Volcom OG Volcom House to capture the music and party vibes.

Early morning surf check out at Pipeline. Some lei days had some gems, but they were far too consistent to run competition in order to give everyone a far shot at scoring potential. During competition, Nate Leal wasn't seen for most of the day. We wondered where he went. Turned out he was down the beach filming the heats from the bushes! The Stone. It stands for something bigger than all of us. No shortage of beers from Kona Brewing Co. and Primo throughout the entire event. Thank you! Cheers for the beers from Tai Vandyke + Milo.

Bruce kept on making heats and dropping huge scores along the way, eventually falling short in the final to Griffin Colapinto, Adriano de Souza, and event winner, Soli Bailey.

Day 3 Highlights - 2017 Volcom Pipe Pro
Day 3 at the 2017 Volcom Pipe Pro went down in the books! It was a day of heavy upsets and flawless conditions which concluded with Heat 14 of Round 3. Kelly Slater went down to an in-form Bruce Irons and young gun Seth Moniz, while Jack Robinson, who was a standout at last year's Volcom Pipe Pro, ended up losing priority and searching for a score in the dying minutes of his heat, but luck didn't deliver. Another story from today was a collision in Heat 6 by Bino Lopes and Joshua Burke who mistakenly tried crossing each other on their ways to Pipe and Backdoor. As the day progressed, the sun came out, things started heating up (no pun intended), and the highlight clips were served. John John exercised his home base knowledge and bagged a couple huge scores in typical JJ fashion, Makuakai Rothman got blown out of a flawless Backdoor barrel, Miguel Tudela snagged a textbook Pipe gem, and of course, there were some classic Pipeline wipeouts. Be sure to catch the recap video above for all of today's highlights and action! Check back with us tomorrow morning @ 9am PT at redbull.tv/volcompipepro to see if the final day of surfing will get underway! You can also watch on the Red Bull TV app on mobile phones, tablets, consoles, OTT devices, and Smart TVs!
