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.

Volcom to Puerto Rico!
What do you get when you mix Volcom and Puerto Rico? The answer should be Rum Punch.. But the real answer is a radical surf trip! The Volcom team went on spring break a little early this year and spent a week down in PR. Mother nature was on our side and she showed us a good time. Here's a taste of the action… Club Destroy -- Mauro Diaz, Pat Schmidt, Ricardo Delgado, Miguel Tudela, Balaram Stack & Noah Schweizer… Pretty heavy crew! Balaram is no stranger to PR. He's always flying down... Yeah, they like long walks on the beach and late nights out on the town. This is Mauro Diaz, our newest addition to the Volcom Family! He's a great human & an awesome surfer. We are more than stoked to have him on the team. This was our first time hangin out with Mauro and we instantly became brothers. He's a classic human in and out of the water. The man, the myth, the legend, Ricardo "Slims" Delgado. This kid is a hard worker. Thanks for taking care of us and showing us around, buddy! Miguel flew over from Peru to hang out for the week. Well, he wasn't really "hangin out," he took home first place in the Volcom TCT Catfish and punted some of the biggest airs! This was Miguel's second time to PR. We can guarantee he'll be back. Miguel's first wave of the trip… yep!  Noah is a sneaky little guy… Don't let his tricks fool yah! Mr. Pat Schmidt flexing as Mauro mimics. We found this sneaky little wedge on our fist day. Pat gave it a Rum Punch! Tinder... Pat speed blur day and night. Balaram sun setting.   The dudes hard at work? (Mullet & Ruddy Photo) Yeahhh, this is Mullet… Our creepy friend… oh, and filmer. These are Coconuts, probably the tastiest and most dangerous drink in all the land. Ruddy, Dane and Billy Hume can vouch.  Happy Birthday, RJ.

Volcom Presents The Unsound Pro!
http://www.unsoundsurf.com/ New York’s premier surf store, is proud to announce that professional surfing is alive and well in the Empire State. UnsOund Surf Shop, New York’s premier surf store, is proud to announce that professional surfing is alive and well in the Empire State. This fall, the 2014 UnsOund Surf Pro NY presented by Volcom will storm the shores of Long Beach, Long Island, offering the same unrivaled display of postmodern shredding that’s made this event an East Coast staple for 17 years now. From September 18-21st, the hallowed beachbreak of Lincoln Blvd. will be the hottest place in the world to be for anyone who froths over solid waves, remarkable surfing and enigmatic characters. UnsOund Surf Shop co-owner and professional surf photographer Mike Nelson and longtime partner and resident ripper Dave Juan have fought tooth-and-nail to keep the UnsOund Pro alive for nearly two decades. Now, with Volcom’s support, they’ll bring some of the best surfers in the world to compete in New York during the peak of the Atlantic Hurricane Season. Past winners of this illustrious event in its many incarnations include: Volcom alumni Balaram Stack, Blake Jones and Kyle Garson; current or former WCT competitors Kolohe Andino, Danny Melhado and Timmy Reyes; current WQS scrappers Brian Toth, Keanu Asing and Jeremy Johnston; New Jersey superpowers Randy Townsend and Sam Hammer; Californian pros Dustin Ray (R.I.P.) and Tommy Acosta; Floridian veteran Asher Nolan and his hometown buddy, defending 2013 champion Ryan Briggs.” As it stands, Briggs, Nolan, Stack, Jones and Johnston are already confirmed entrants. They will be joined by former WCT veterans Ben Bourgeois and Gabe Kling, as well as talented East Coast pros Rob Kelly, Michael Dunphy and Noah Schweizer. Hawaiian pros Dylan Goodale and Kalani Robb will make the trip to Long Beach, as well. The timing couldn’t be better for local export-turned-international sensation Balaram Stack, who just signed with Volcom last year. The 21-year-old has been a treasured UnsOund teamrider since he was 9 and would like nothing more than to grab another victory right here at Lincoln Blvd. in front of his friends, family, childhood mentors and his main sponsor. To show his appreciation, Balaram will once again throw up a four-figure cash prize for whoever throws up the biggest punt in the “Balaram Stack Strong Island Big Air.” “Hell yeah, can’t wait!” Balaram exclaims. “Every year, the UnsOund Surf Pro is one of my favorite contests. Not only is it in my backyard, it’s the most fun week of the year — maybe even better than the U.S. Open of Surfing, which I thought would be impossible. It’s just a good time with great friends — pretty much all I could ask for in a contest.” The first day will ignite the “Strong Island Lifeguard Challenge,” where West End local Balaram Stack will lead an East End lifesaving team against TJ Gumiela’s West End squad in a 30-minute team-style surf-off/ jetty sprint. The winning team will receive a $500 check benefiting the local charity of their choice. In addition, longtime shop and event supporter Spy will lend their distinctly “happy” element to the event in the way of myriad festivities and attractions including retail tents, activity booths and a surf photography art show — all of which are certain to send this stoked crowd into a frenzy. And speaking of which, Spy’s “STOKED Expression Session” goes down on Saturday. This mentoring session where beach interaction and water assistance go hand-in-hand will pair a dozen kids ages 14-18 from youth-focused nonprofit STOKED with a dozen pros including Cody Thompson, Pat Schmidt, Balaram Stack, Quincy Davis and Alex Gray for a lighthearted team competition where feel-good criteria include “best soul arch” and “best maneuver.” Official “Volcom UnsOund Pro” product from hoodies to tees to hats to re-useable water bottles will also be available for purchase on site at Volcom’s retail pop-up shop, on the Lincoln Blvd. boardwalk, as well as UnsOund Surf Shop up the street and at Wednesday’s Event Kick-Off Party at the store, 4-7pm. Free food and drinks will be provided by Swingbelly’s BBQ, and Montauk Brewing Co., respectively, as partygoers will be treated to a showing of Volcom’s new movie, True To This, as well as a Volcom Surf Team Meet & Greet and a Prize Raffle from the event sponsors to benefit “The Long Beach Christmas Angel.” Other gracious sponsors include MIZU, Drop Global, Rev’d, Mamma Chia, Skull Candy, The Inn at Long Beach, Gentle Brew Coffee. In other words, if you’re craving it, it will be here at the UnsOund Surf Pro NY presented by Volcom. As for the surf, the groin-gutted beachbreaks of Long Beach are strategically positioned to go off — facing south to welcome any long-range energy that may be stirring up in the tropics this time of year, the historic peak of Hurricane Season. In other words, Long Beach is a wave magnet, a tube lab, and therefore the ideal stage for what could be the most captivating show of high-performance surfing the East Coast has seen since the first, and last, time the ASP World Tour landed here in 2011 (the Quiksilver Pro New York). In fact, given the potential this place has to blow cannonballs of spit and break surfboards like parking ordinances — the 2014 UnsOund Surf Pro NY presented by Volcom could be even more exciting.
