2014 Volcom European Wild In The Parks Championships in Sevilla

Norway took it all at the 2014 Volcom European Wild In The Parks Championships in Sevilla!
Gard Hvaara, Øyvind Svensen and Oscar Hjellegjerde are the 2014 European Wild In The Parks Champions!
Some rainy weather was forecasted on the day of the event, which is very unusual for Sevilla, and forced organizers to change location. The original outdoor skatepark of Plaza de Armas is perfectly located downtown Sevilla, just next to the river, fun to ride, great to chill and watch the action but was soaked in the middle of the afternoon. Luckily, an indoor skatepark, the « Wild House », opened just a few weeks ago and lent us their facility for the event.

Why Blister? Why Anything? - Noa Deane gets "deep"
Don't call it surf rock! When Noa Deane isn’t surfin’ he can usually be found with a guitar in his hands channeling his alt-rock heroes Mudhoney and Melvins. Last September Noa recorded his first EP entitled barbie69 entirely by himself at his parents house in their kitchen and put it up on Bandcamp. Jamming the album for a while now, the more we listened, the more we wanted to know. So over the course of a few txt msgs we got Noa shine a little light on his music background. When did you first start playing music? What was the first instrument you learned on? When I was about 12, I had a red Fender Squire Stratocaster. You recorded the album in your parents house, what did you record on? Yeah it was in the downstairs kitchen using Garageband. You play guitar left-handed, but drum right-handed. Which hand do you write with? I write with my right hand. I guess I have a few wires crossed in my brain.Heard you own a cello, do you play that one regular or goofy? Bought one and never play it, haha.Any Aussie musicians you look up to or have influenced you? Inxs is sick and I like Silverchair too. Why Blister? Why anything? haha How’s the album doing? You only need to sell 35,000 to get a gold record in Australia, do you already know where you are going to hang yours? It's going alright. Sold $400 bucks worth, but I'll never sell that many. Haha Below's a little taste of Blister live last week in Manly, Australia during Volcom's epic week long takeover of the Hotel Steyne during Riders Week. Give Noa and Blister a follow on Instagram for more.

Interview with Alec Majerus on Cancel History
About a month or so ago we had an idea to have a skateboarder, surfer and snowboarder do all 3 board sports in the same day to celebrate the release of our Cancel History collection. Southern California is one of the few places where we could actually pull this off, so we enlisted skateboarders Alec Majerus, Omar Hassan, legendary snowboarder Jamie Lynn and surfer Noa Deane to hit the slopes of Mt. High, waves of Newport Beach and our very own skatepark here at Volcom HQ. Outfitted in original Volcom tee designs from the 90's it was just like the old days, 20 plus years later, but the vibe and true Volcom spirit was still the same. Snowboarding, surfing and skateboarding in the same day is no easy task, so we decided to have a brief chat with Alec Majerus, who he was actually snowboarding up in Big Sky, Montana with his family, to get his take on the day. Hey Alec, how is it going what you been up to? Good man, just been skating and snowboarding a lot lately. We know your rip on a skateboard, but how long have you been snowboarding and surfing? I've been snowboarding since I was like 8. I've only surfed a few times though Alec spraying powder at Mt. High I heard you and your friends were psyched on snowboarding, surfing and skating in the same day, have you ever tried to do that before? Nah I haven't done that before. It's always been a goal of mine. What was the hardest part? The snowboarding, surfing or skating? The surfing was so hard because the waves were pretty big and I was getting smoked Noa Deane and Alec getting ready to surf. How much did you snowboard back home in Minnesota? I used to do a lot of backyard snowboarding growing up because I couldn't skate. A lot of people say snowboarding and skateboarding are very similar but still different, what are your thoughts? Do you find snowboarding easier since you rip so hard on a skateboard? Yea I think if you can skate you can easily learn to snowboard and vice versa You’ve skated some pretty monster rails but have you ever hit one on a snowboard? Yea I lipslid and 5050 on a 16 when I was younger Noa, Alec and Omar post surf sesh I remember you were living in a studio apartment in Huntington Beach with all your Minnesota homies for a minute. Did you ever surf when you were living by the beach? Nah, I didn't surf until I moved to Costa Mesa. Wish I would have took advantage of that though! Between the dudes you did this epic day with, Jamie Lynne, Noa Deane and Omar Hassan, who were you more impressed with as far watching them do a board sport they’re not known for? Noa said he had never snowboarded before and we took him to the top and he did it without falling. I was tripping on that. After snowboarding and surfing Alec still had enough fuel in the tank to pop off the walls. Lastly, what do you got planned for the rest of 2017? Aren’t you putting working on a homie video? I don't know man, the homie bailed back to Minnesota and is over filming so that's botched. Filming a part with Ant Travis though.

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.

Charly Quivront Lets Loose in Hawaii
Charly Quivront, aka The Cat, is not new to this whole Hawaii thing. The young French surfer has spent many winter seasons at the Volcom Hawaii Houses surfing his brains out, hanging with the house crew dudes like Tai Vandyke and Kaimana Henry, and scoring tons of photos and video clips along the way. This season, Charly met Gabriel Novis, one of Brazil's hottest surf filmmakers, and they instantly clicked. Gabriel was itching to work on a new project, and Charly was eager to get some fresh clips online. So the boys got to work in Hawaii and turned out this killer edit. We asked Gabriel what it was like working with Charly: I have been wanting to do a raw video part for a while. Inspired on those old skateboard films that we all grew up watching, and when I heard about this Volcom kid Charly Quivront staying in Hawaii for the winter, I jumped on the opportunity. It was the perfect fit. It was super fun filming with Charly and have the opportunity to stay at the Volcom House. The vibe is just insane over there, pretty cool place to be. Charly is a raw talent. The kid is true and surf needs more people like this. He knows how to mix high perfomance surfing with real fun sessions and Hawaii was the perfect set up for this rad sunny clip! photo: Tom Carey photo: Tom Carey Get To Know Charly Quivront Age: 21 Currently living: Hossegor Years surfing: 16 Sponsors: Volcom, ABC, FCS, Gorilla Grip, Maracuja Surf Shop Favorite spot: Lower Trestles (California) or Seignosse (France) Favorite country: Hawaii, but I need to go back to Indo Goals: Chasing good waves, having fun, and getting the best results on the QS tour! First board: BOUL surfboard made by my uncle for my third birthday Warm-ups: Listening to music when I get changed What gets you motivated to surf? Watching a good surf movie Side tracks: Party Music: PHFAT, "Light Out" Videos: Modern Collective and Lost Atlas Best style: No hipster Random information: I like brunettes Favorite Volcom Pants: Chinos Favorite Boardshorts: Mod-Tech One thing you can't leave home without: My Phone Special thanks: Specially to my parents, family, and my sponsors Fill in the blank: Hello. My name is Charly Quivront, some people call me le Chat. I would best describe my hometown as a good place to rest and see friends. I've traveled quite a bit, but by far the best place I've been is Hawaii because it's warm and there are fun waves everyday. But, by far the worse trip ever was to Canaries a couples years ago!

See Indonesia Like Never Before with Muklis Anwar and Bol
Surfing has long been synonymous with road trips. Before tide charts and surf cams, surfers trailed the coastlines in search of treasures. Treasures full of epic waves and empty lineups. Road trips were journeys of discovery, but also of adventure. Uncharted roads that were traveled 50 years ago by surf pioneers are still being traveled today, yet harder to keep secret from the herd. Time and technology has seen the perfect swell reduced to an alert on your phone, thus missing the road to discovery, and that first moment you feast your eyes on glory once known only by a few salty dogs. Captured by discovery, adventure, and waves, Volcom Indonesia team riders Muklis Anwar and Made Winada Adi Putra (“Bol”) packed their bags and boards and hit the open roads to Indonesia’s exotic eastern island of Sumbawa. For nine epic days of hopping ferries and cruising coastal roads, they reignited their love in the journey of finding waves, their appreciation for Indonesia, and the joy of discovering land and waves firsthand. Along their journey, the people they met, the cultures they witnessed, and the breaks they encountered could only be experienced through a rugged, rudimental road trip with an unfeathered sense of destination. It’s fair to say Eastern Roads is no ordinary surf video. It’s an epic travelogue of two surfers remembering that the journey itself is the destination. Reignite your desire for adventure, freedom and a surf-life long forgotten. Roadside break with a view. Shooting some behind the scenes. Muklis prepping his board. Bol, pre-shred. Muklis and Bol waiting until the swell picks up a bit before paddling out. Bol with a lofty punt, "Garuda" style. Couple fun ones at Cobbles. Muklis Anwar Like a postcard, right? Lakeys gives more than awesome waves. Stuck on an island. Waiting for the boat ride out. Muklis snags the first barrel of the morning. There were some fast drainers that morning. Bol layin' it down! It's not too often you see full-rail carves like these. Every wave party wave. Muklis in tube city. Muklis demonstrates your typical roundhouse, which seems like an antiquated maneuver these days. Nonetheless, it's a fundamental one which should be learned by every surfer. A lot of the time, this wave gave them a ton of speed so they could hit this end section and try lots of different tricks. Muklis goes for broke! Sunset happy hour. These are the days. Campfire fun. This is Lakey's iconic surf tower. Barrel #34 of the day for Muklis. It wasn't too crowded this day, so they were able to catch a ton of waves and just have fun. No worries for Muklis! Deeper you go, the more rewarding the barrel. Side-trekking by foot! Muklis taking a break from the journey and soaking it all in. Sunset view at Lakey Peak. Somewhere in Sumbawa. Crimson sunset with Bol and Muklis. Muklis resorting to primitive ways of cooking. West Sumbawa with Mt. Renjani in the background. Tons of exploring, not enough time!
