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.
