SFD Uncut: Curtis Ciszek
With every video and video part that drops there are countless shots and endless moments that never see the light of day and The SNOWBOARDER Movie: SFD was no exception. Sometimes, some of the rider's favorite shots or filmer's favorite angles don’t always make the final cut. Whether they didn’t quite fit in the song, another angle was used, or a certain trick was done again, there’s always great stuff that is talked about by the riders and people involved, but other than that, it’s as if it never existed. Volcom's Curtis Ciszek chased snow in Canada, as well as far off places like Europe and Japan, and all of his clips that didn't make the cut can now be consumed.

Volcom x B4BC Collection - Designer || Artist Interview with Carolyn Campos & Vanessa Stark
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Volcom has partnered up with Boarding for Breast Cancer to bring awareness and support once again. This year we’ve teamed up with artist, Vanessa Stark, to create the Act Insulated Jacket where we will donate a portion of the proceeds to the Boarding for Breast Cancer Foundation. Shop the Act Insulated Jacket   Our very own Volcom Snow designer, Carolyn Campos and Vanessa Stark happen to be great friends who inspire one another. We got a chance to catch up with both of them and chat about how it was to work with one another on this years B4BC design!   Carolyn Campos How was it designing the Act Insulated Jacket with your friend and artist, Vanessa Stark? CC: I have always looked up to Vanessa, she is an avid snowboarder, mountain biker and all around outdoor adventure enthusiast as well as an incredible artist! So it was natural working with her. Her art and visions are so inspiring to me and she fit the vibe of the line I was creating perfectly. There is so much color and textures used with in the owl. And if you look into its eyes, it is visioning snow peaked mountain tops! How long have you been designing for Volcom Snow?  CC: I am coming up on 12 years!! Time sure does fly when you are having fun! Designing for Volcom was my dream job as a young outerwear designer and snowboarder. I still pinch myself that this dream came true, so naturally too. I was sitting at my desk, at my previous job, and my phone rang… And it was Volcom with the job proposal. Here I am and the rest is history! Describe to us your creative process. How do you get in the mind set of designing? CC: It’s constant really. I can’t just go to the ski hill and go snowboarding. I am constantly observing and creating in my mind. If you are on the chairlift or gondola with me you can guarantee I have completely picked over every detail of your outerwear by the time the ride is finished!!  In a way its taken some of the feeling of escape being on the mountain which is why I have been getting more backcountry riding in the past few years. Riding in almost complete solitude. I also shop and travel the world. Being inspired from many many different angles. I also love interior design, furniture, buildings, textile design… It goes on.  My mind has always been creative. When I need a break from designing, I knit or cook or sew… Just other forms of creating. I can’t stop really. Who are some of your design heroes?    CC: Oh wow, how do I even pin point them. A couple oldies like Jean Muir and Arne Jacobsen I always find inspiring. In design school I did projects on Betsey Johnson and Todd Oldham so I always like following their colorful craziness. I love Banksy’s element of suburban rebellion. Emily Hoy’s graphic design I keep close to my heart. Alexander Wang, McQueen, Chanel, Christopher Kane… The list goes way on and on!! When did you first hear of B4BC? How long has Volcom Snow been partnered with them? CC:  Volcoms first collaboration with B4BC was in the 2006/07 snow line. We started with a fleece piece. It was the following year that we really made an impact with Jamie Lynn’s “Blue Girl” torso graphic on an outerwear jacket, fleece and tee! We really started to gain awareness with B4BC that season!! It is such an amazing thing B4BC is doing for young women. What are you ‘True To’? CC: I aim to be ‘True’ to everything in life. I like real people. Vanessa Stark What inspired you to first pick up a paint brush? When did you start painting? VS:  All kids paint... I just never stopped. Visual arts has been a big part of my life from the beginning. It was something that was really natural for me. Art has always been a part of who I am. What does a "day in the office" look like to you? VS:  Being self-employed has its pro's and con's. Some days are awesome and others can be intense. Having the flexibility of making your own hours has its advantages, especially when there is pow to shred! There are other days when deadlines are looming and I can't feel my legs because I've been painting non-stop for days on end. Finding balance is key to a perfect "day in the office". How do you stay inspired? What inspires you the most? VS:  I'm inspired by the magic of this life and world. I've recently been intrigued by the rhythms of nature and subconscious connection between all things. Living the life i live, having adventures in the mountains, surrounded by nature and friends gives me an endless amount of inspiration. I have pages and pages of notes and a stack of doodled-up sketchbooks full of ideas I haven't had a chance to release to the world just yet. Does snowboarding have a big effect on your life? VS: Huge! Snowboarding saved my life and has shaped virtually everything about my life since. Snowboarding has been my true passion since I first tried it in 1991. My art style is a reflection of my lifestyle which has been a result of my love of snowboarding. How was it designing the Act Insulated Snow Jacket with Carolyn? VS: Carolyn is an amazing artist and designer. She had the vision for the jacket and approached me for the artwork. The cut and color/artwork combo on the jacket are so sick! I was super stoked to play a part in this jacket especially with proceeds going to B4BC. I wore the jacket last year and was pretty blown away by the positive response the jacket got. What are you true to? VS: I'll always be true to snowboarding, family, friends, being kind with an open mind, enjoying life's moments and its crazy ride. And of course I'm true to art because life is art.
