Miguel Correia (MIKE GHOST) was born in the south of Portugal and raised in a fisherman’s town. Soon his parents showed him the good things life can provide, while reminding him he still needed to work hard for it. At the age of 13 he started going to some local underground music shows, and it was a matter of weeks before he started his own band with his brother. Constantly surrounded by his father’s great taste in music and his love for American biker culture, their home was packed with records and biker magazines. Needless to say those artifacts were all about girls, tattoos and of course, bikes, all of which had a massive influence on young Mike. At the age of 16 he decided to quit school and go on tour across Europe with a hardcore band from Lisbon. From that day until the present, touring has taken him all over the place.

Kelly Slater, nearly 4 decades of putting ThisFirst
Insecurity, sobriety, the feeling of filling a void in one's heart, are universal themes that have just as great of a potential to be destructive as they do to be the motivating factor in success. Sharing what drove him at a young age and what still drives him today, Kelly opens up about his family, relationships and how he stays focused on winning. As both the youngest and oldest surfer to ever win a world title, Kelly Slater's career successes stack up against the greatest in any sport; as an 11-time world champion, Kelly is one of the winningest athletes in history, more than Tiger Woods, more than Wayne Gretzky, more than Muhammad Ali. This rare glimpse into the psyche of the sport of surfing's most enduring competitor and innovator can be appreciated by anyone, surfer or not.

Of special interest to Simon is the plight of the Haitian migrants who are in search of a better life as they flee from their ravaged country. Only in the recent years has Chile and it's citizens have had to begin to consider immigration and without a comprehensive immigration policy in place, those migrating to the country are facing discrimination and labour abuse.     Having received his visa, Costa Rica's Fabian Ruiz, better known as Chama, is in the planning stages of a U.S. tour this fall.

Meet the 15 #ThisFirst New Hires From Around the World
We weren't quite sure what the reaction would be when we decided to ask the Internet, "What's your 'this'?", to say we were pleasantly surprised would be an understatement. You, everyone who submitted an entry into the #ThisFirst contest, completely blew us away. We were flooded with over 10,000 photos, videos and statements of passion and what being able to put that passion first in life would mean. Entries spanned a variety of topics, the most common being art, photography and travel, while music, surfing and skateboarding followed closely behind. But it wasn't just artistic globetrotting types with a passion for boardsports that entered, people pursuing passions as varied as sustainable farm to table food sourcing, charity work, animal rescue, make-up artistry and even crochet, all shared their stories with us. To pick just 60 finalists from the thousands of entries who would go on to do a video call with Volcom, our panel of judges sequestered themselves in an office for a week to go through everyone's entries. The deeper they got, the less it felt like they were going through contest entries and the more like they were parsing the results of a massive survey which was beginning to reveal some trends; A lot of you like to take photos and want to travel, especially Australians. Aspirations to become a successful YouTuber were not uncommon. And entrants in Asia had a tendency more than any other region to focus on charitable giving. But if we thought making our selection of the 60 finalists was hard, narrowing that field of finalists down to 15 winners was even more difficult and we appreciate everyone's patience (yes, we saw your comments on Instagram) awaiting the announcement. Before introducing the winners below, we just wanted to take a final moment and express how truly humbled we were by all the finalists and what it is that is driving you to purse your 'this'. To you and everyone else who entered and gave us a peek into your lives, we cannot thank you enough! Now without further ado...

Why I Do 'This' with Jesse Gross of Remote Year
We're partnering with the crew at Mic.com to produce a series of videos featuring individuals' inspiring stories of becoming comfortable with the uncomfortable when they decided to make their passion their priority. In this inaugural episode, we explore the moment when Jesse Gross decided to quit his finance job in New York City and set out to work for the start up, Remote Year. Providing individuals the ability to travel the world in a group for 12 months as each works remotely, Remote Year offered Jesse the opportunity to work for a company who's mission aligned with his own, allowing him to get out and explore the world without ever being chained to a desk again. As we found in our #ThisFirst contest, one of the things people are most passionate about is travel and to really explore the world and its different cultures. Yet being able to make that a reality is often hindered by the ability to afford it. Such the conundrum exists where one needs a job to be able to afford to travel, but once one has a job and can afford to travel, one no longer has the time. Jesse and Remote Year offer both an inspiration and a service to help others take the leap to put their 'this' first.

Volcom Took over Hotel Steyne for a Week of Madness!
Last week Volcom was thrilled to take over Hotel Steyne in Manly, New South Wales, Australia for Riders Week, a week full of art, music, skating, parties, giveaways, movie premieres, team signings, and more! Thousands of people cruised through all week to catch live paintings from artists such as Anthony Lister, Gemma O'Brien, and Ozzie Wright, jam to some rad tunes from Ozzie, Noa Deane's band Blister, Andrew Doheny's band Power Lunch, Bleeding Knees Club, and others, and catch a glimpse of some mini-ramp skating from dudes like Pedro Barros, Jackson Pilz, Grant Taylor, Dane Burman, and CJ Collins. But that's not all. This seven day event had much more to witness, and we've got it all for your below. Gemma O'Brien timelapse @ Hotel Steyne... Anthony Lister took to the wall to spray paint an eagle... All photos by Andrew Christie (unless otherwise noted) NIGHT 1 - Monday, February 27 Monday was the launch of the Volcom X Hotel Steyne Riders Week, and we kicked things off immediately with one of Australia's beloved characters, Ozzie Wright showing off his skills with the spray cans. He was posted up above the courtyard spray painting a live mural on a row boat for the keen crowd to enjoy. The pool room was emptied for the crazy-talented Gemma O'Brien to work her magic, painting a huge mural which wrapped around the walls of the room. The skate ramp was set up and a couple of our team riders: Dane Burman, Jackson Pilz and Shane Azar, shredded for an hour to a beer-thirsty crowd. Our nightly trivia, hosted by MC Azar, ignited where we saw some super frothed groms and adults walk away with some insane gear, which helped fuel those stoke levels. Hotel Steyne was the place to be all week long! Jamie Browne Volcom tee pictured. Mitch Coleborn, Andrew "Droid" Doheny, Ozzie Wright, and Noa Deane watching the skate team on the mini ramp. Gemma O'Brien working on the mural she created in the pool room. Mitch and Ozzie, some good 'ol fashion hang time! Miguel Tudela (left), Noa Deane (middle), Ozzie Wright (right). Ozzie painted the Surf Boat on the roof! Part of the crew from Ozzie's perspective while he was up there painting. Torpedo-lookin' boat + Noa Deane's surfboard on display. Noa hangin' with Volcom Skate Team riders Jackson Pilz + Reece Warren. Jackson on the mini. Dane Burman smith grinding the Volcom mini ramp at the Hotel Steyne. Jackson at it again. This ramp was a hot spot to be the entire week. Got super crowded, and wild, but managed to stay intact 'til the end. (We can't say the same for everyone who attended.) Mitch messing up Gemma's mural. JK, he lent a helping hand on the then-work-in-progress while she focused on the, let's say,  more important pieces. Yeah, let's go with that. Ozzie wanted to help, too, so he grabbed a brush and took to the wall. Once the night lights came on, the zombies awoke and things got weird. But, a good weird, of course. Gemma O'Brien, mural by day, mural by night! Getting there... Hotel Steyne was rad enough to Gemma do her magic, so here's her appreciation-piece, part of the entire mural. Gemma has a very distinct approach to her art. It's appreciated, and purposeful. Check out some of her tutorials HERE on calligraphy, typography, and more! Night 2 - Tuesday, February 28 Tuesday saw Gemma O'Brien put the finishing touches on her mural in the pool room, while Anthony Lister busted out the spray cans to paint a live mural for the onlookers in the courtyard. We saw lots of dudes showing off their talents on the mini ramp, and team rider Dane Burman even jumped on the ramp to roll with them and no doubt make their day. Gemma continued her mural on Night 2 of the event. She studied the piece for a long time to make sure everything was to her liking. ...is alive and well. It's crazy how you can start with a blank wall, use so much paint, make so much art, and leave the space looking like this. Gemma is a perfectionist, and it shows. Very fine lines and coordination between each segment. Anthony Lister painted a huge eagle in the middle of the hotel bar area. People were stoked to check it out and ask him tons of questions. A slight different approach to his art than Gemma, but nonetheless, equally as talented. The eagle and the Lister. Ozzie takin' a break from his project, hangin' with some of the boys. Volcom beer tap! The walls were plastered with some Volcom art from the ages! If you tell us you've never once said this in your early beer-drinkin' days, we'll tell you that's a lie. Groms were stoked to chat with Ozzie and Lister, and give it a go on the mini ramp. What do you think these dudes were talking about? Art? Skating? Sustainability initiatives? Probably the latter... Some of Newport Beach's finest made their way to Australia! Filmmaker Matt Tromberg and pro surfer Ford Archbold sharing some laughs (well, at least Ford is) with buddy Ozzie. Some onlookers at Lister's eagle. Done-zo. Creepers... Mitch loves this shirt.   Night 3 - Wednesday, March 1 The last couple of nights have been 6ft & offshore down at the pub! Wednesday night included the Boarders Skate store Mini Ramp Jam, Metal Neck 2 – The Bang Over movie premiere, followed by the Gold Coast garage rock band The Bleeding Knees Club, fronted by Alex Wall. Drinks were flowing, stories were shared, and everyone was shredding. Groms loaded up the ramp. Arm casts and all! Little buddy! Each night there was some trivia for rad prizes, and here is Volcom Australia's Shane Azar quizzing this grom in the foreground. Groms are always stoked on stickers! That, my friends, will never go out of style. The ramp was mini, but packed full of fun. The 'Best Trick Comp' at the pub went off! Dudes were trying all sorts of weird things, and in strange outfits. Keep scrolling... Crowd filled in, music turned up, and so did the competition! Mini ramp kickflip. This guy really set it off with dropping in from the second level. ...and continuing his run to the mini. That's one way to ride a ramp! The Hotel Steyne filled up every night by sundown. Can't tell if he's jumping off the second level, or if this is just a high air. Either way, the landing isn't looking promising. Beers and whistles! Sounds like the name of a bar. Is it? Mini shredders on the mini ramp gettin' in some action. What in the bejesus. 1 of 4 2 of 4 3 of 4 4 of 4 - Yep, we all saw that comin' No one was using this table, right? No one got seriously injured on this ramp. Although this table may have been destroyed. Raffle winner of Droid's surfboard. Stoked! Metal Neck 2 movie screening at the Moonshine Bar. The crowd was packed in tight, and the kids were all right! Euro skate bros, and a Greyson Fletcher photo bomb! Volcom surf team rider Miguel Tudela (stripped tee) and part of his crew enjoying the night. Someone looks like they're getting chewed out! In all fun, though, right? Fair go for dogs? Droid, droiding. Droid hangin' with Greyson Fletcher and friends. Volcom's VP of Surf, Brad Dougherty, flew over from California to hang with all the boys! Just some happy girls having some Coronas. What's wrong with that?! Nothing! Endless Coronas were on tap. Miguel Tudela and... friends! Night 3 fun! Couple dudes. More dudes. Some groms getting rowdy to the band. The Bleeding Knees Club performed at the end of the night. This is frontman, Alex Wall. Alex Wall The Bleeding Knees Club   Night 4 - Thursday, March 2 Thursday night included the Surfing World Reelers short film competition awards, Volcom X Vans Pro Skate Team mini ramp demo (which unfortunately got rained out after the first hour, but we still ripped), and to end the night we had the band The Mammals and Flower Truck rock out in the Moonshine Bar! He's an innovator. The innovator and Mitch Coleborn. David Vlug testing the new beer cozies. Ozzie's finished boat alongside Volcom team rider boards that were up for grabs! Boards from left to right: Mitch Coleborn, Ozzie Wright, Noa Deane. Tons of hats and totes were printed on all week and given out to the eager guests. Aime Maisse loves the night vibes! Jackson Pilz throwing his board around during the Pro Demo. Young ripper Ethan Copeland helped rally the crowd. Straight up! It was a solid night of skating... ...for most Night jams! The crowd got down to some epic tunes from some local artists. Volcom team rider CJ Collins is the demo KING! (photo: Anthony Mapstone) photo: Anthony Mapstone photo: Anthony Mapstone photo: Anthony Mapstone   Night 5 - Friday, March 3 Friday night was a little more mellow on the scale of the week, but nonetheless, still cranked out a good time. We had our daily trivia running with lots of prizes won and we saw the bands Los Tones supported by Jackie Brown Jnr. The night ended fairly early in order to get ready for the following night's end-of-week blowout with the heavy lineup (scroll down to see). Everyone loves promo girls. None other than legendary surfer Christian Fletcher showed up for a good time! This girl showing the boys how to dance and let loose! Some interesting moments happened. This was one of them. These boards were raffled off to a stoked crowd. Can you guess which one is Ozzie Wright's?! The setting was pleasant, the people were nice, and friends were made. The bands each night shifted the crowd into another mode. Was she starstruck, overcome with excitement, or scared? You be the judge.   Night 6 - Saturday, March 4 Saturday was turned up to eleven with 'The Paradise Club' party combined with STAB which went down at the Moonshine Bar with performances by Noa Deane’s band Blister, Andrew Doheny’s band Power Lunch, and Ozzie Wright! The entrance line for Hotel Steyne was one of the biggest lines ever seen and the night was definitely one for the history books! "Hurry, she's not looking!" What in the bejesus. Bati Rum mixers with the girls. Volcom X Stab's "Paradise Club" party @ the Moonshine Bar. Su Young Choi with the crew! One of the lucky board-giveaway winners! Mitch Coleborn's board winner! Ozzie Wright's board winner. This guy was the perfect fit for that board. He was stoked. Ozzie Wright kicked off the night in his classic white Ozzie shades. Noa Deane + Ozzie Wright jammed together to get the crowd off their feet. Check these dudes in the front. They're living it! Blister, Noa Deane's band, kicked off right after Ozzie. Lighting is A+ here. Noa Deane + his band Blister. Read more on Noa and Blister HERE. The crowd got so hyped off the tunes that the place nearly got shut down. Luckily, they were able to be tamed (the crowd, not the management) and the night continued long into the wee hours. Battle dance? Noa tuning his guitar before jamming to the rowdy and alcohol-infused crowd. How's that Volcom 90's tee?! Get yourself one HERE! Done-zo. Noa Deane. Droid's band Power Lunch was going on after Blister. Here's Droid gettin' some assistance from buddy Noa. Face paint, check. Not everyone naturally looked like this by Day 6 of the event, but some did. The boys. Christian Fletcher, Noa Deane, Greyson Fletcher, Ozzie Wright. Frontman for Power Lunch, Droid, gettin' into rhythm. Ozzie, front row at the Droid Power Lunch show! Droid 1 Droid 2 Little bit of that old school rock 'n rock channeling through Droid.

A 100% in the moment with Austin Amelio
A fixture on the Austin, TX skate scene for years, and longtime friend of Volcom, Austin Amelio is making a name for himself in the acting world, playing Dwight on The Walking Dead and starring in a host of independent films, including this year's Everybody Wants Some, Richard Linklater's spiritual sequel to Dazed and Confused. Having recently relocated to Atlanta, GA from Austin, TX we caught up with Austin at his home with his girlfriend and son as he painted us a picture and shared how he got into acting and the parallels he draws between acting and skateboarding. Filmed and edited by, Calvin Millar, the two go back a ways in the Austin, TX skate scene, with Millar including Austin's part in his 2011 video, The Devil's Toy. Watch it below. Before making the move to Atlanta, Volcom's creative director, Mike Aho, shot Austin for the Volcom Holiday '16 lookbook that can be seen below. You can check out more of Austin's work on his IMDB page and give him a follow on Instagram.
