Watch the trailer for Holy Stokes! A Real Life Happening, the new Skate Movie coming soon from Volcom
Nearly two years in the making and featuring an international cast of skaters ranging from street legends to transition destroyers to hyper-talented up-and-comers rolling and rallying across the planet, Volcom's forthcoming feature film Holy Stokes! is shaping up to be the feel good hit of the summer. Shot entirely in 4K ultra high-definition and directed by skate-film auteur Russell Houghten, Holy Stokes! marks the first full-length skate film from Veeco Productions since 2007's Let's Live. Shot in dozens of locations spanning every corner of the globe, it builds on more than 20 years and 30 influential films from the world of Volcom. "I'm really excited for people to see this film," says Volcom's Vice President of Skate Remy Stratton, "it's been a long time coming. I know the team riders are excited too and right now our team is firing, so it's cool to be able to showcase all that talent through the Volcom lens." And with the brand's legacy of progressive, non-traditional films, he says, "having Russell directing it is a perfect fit." Russell's perspective is this: "Holy Stokes is a visual documentation of raw skateboarding and the pursuit of stoke. It has been an awesome nightmare and my most ambitious project yet." The world premiere of Holy Stokes! is set for May 20th, 2016 in Los Angeles, California with a North American and International premiere tour to follow from May 20th-June 6th, 2016. Holy Stokes! will be available on iTunes, Amazon, GooglePlay, xBox and Vimeo onDemand on June 7th, 2016. Holy Stokes! stars these dudes: Alain Goikoetxea, Alec Majerus, Alex Midler, Axel Cruysberghs, Ben Raemers, Caswell Berry, Chris Pfanner, CJ Collins, Collin Provost, Daan Van Der Linden, Dane Burman, David Gonzalez, Dennis Busenitz, Dustin Dollin, Grant Taylor, Jackson Pilz, Jordan Trahan, Kyle Walker, Milton Martinez, Louie Lopez, Pedro Barros, Rune Glifberg, Ryan Sheckler

A major part of the festivities is the “Festival of the Skateboard” which is a week dedicated to celebrating art, music and true skateboard culture. The Festival of the Skateboard will feature old school skate sessions, barbeques, a surprise music element, The Love & Guts art show, Volcom BOWL-A-RAMA™ Getxo competition and the after party. “I’ve never been to Spain but the bowl is very backyard like a pool, Jeff Grosso said I’m going to like it, a bowl on the beach, it's a no brainer.” Says pool legend Steve Alba (SAlba). The international PRO list is one of the strongest BOWL-A-RAMA has had with Al Partanen, Alain Goikoetxea, Alex Perelson, Alex Sorgente, Ben Raybourn, Bjorn Lillesoe, Bugs Fardell, Chris Russell, Colin Provost, Cory Juneau, Danny Leon, David Sanchez, Diego Doural, Felipe Foguinho, Georgio Zattoni, Grant Taylor, Ivan Rivado, James McInnes, Josh Borden, Murilo Peres, Nilo Pecanha, Nolan Munroe, Otavio Neto, Pedro Barros, Raney Beres, Rion Linderman, Rob Lorifice, Rune Glifberg, Sam Beckett, Sky Siljeg, Steven Pineiro, Vi Kakinho and Vincent Matheron, with more to be confirmed. The lineup of MASTERS is a who’s who of the legends and the oriinal pool “godfathers” in skateboarding including Brad Bowman, Eddie “El Gato” Elguera, Lester Kasai, Nick Couscouris, Nicky Guerrero, Pat Ngoho, Peter Hewitt, Sean Goff, Steve Alba and Txus Dominguez (La Kantera skate park designer). Volcom BOWL-A-RAMA™ Getxo (Basque Country) will showcase the world's best and iconic Pro and Master’s bowl skateboarders as they grapple for the title of Volcom BOWL-A-RAMA™ Getxo champion and for a total prize purse of $US30,000. “Bowl skating is diverse with flow bowls, pro bowls, snake runs and the rest all being part of the whole. It all comes from backyard pool skating though. La Kantera is one of the closest skatepark bowls in the world to what it feels like to ride an actual backyard pool. Being able to hold BOWL-A-RAMA in such a spot feels like we’re honouring all those who came before and created what we’re all taking part in now. Having SAlba, who won the first professional bowl competition and Brad Bowman and Eddie Elguara all dropping in just makes it that more special. Also, with such a wide international field making up the pro division we couldn’t ask for a better first year. Looking forward to seeing you all at the beach for Volcom BOWL-A-RAMA Getxo”. Says Chad Ford, Director of Frontside Events. BOWL-A-RAMA™ was born on Bondi Beach – Sydney, Australia in 2005 and is the biggest professional concrete series in the World. With Wellington, Bondi, NYC and the addition of Getxo, BOWL-A-RAMA can now call some of the most iconic destinations in the world home.
