Spitfire X Volcom Launch Party at the Vert Jungle

In celebration of the new Spitfire X Volcom collection we went out to our friend Rob Beaudoin's "Vert Jungle" in Pismo Beach, CA for a sesh on the ramp, BBQ with the bros and bands to keep the party going. We met up with our friends from Spitfire Wheels and Thrasher Magazine on a Friday and planned on camping on our friend Rob's property Friday and Saturday night. Day of the party the kids and vets got to the ramp early before most even woke up, but as soon as everyone made it out of their tents and to the ramp, it was on. Bad Shit and Ratt Black came out to play, but it was a little too loud for the neighbors. Everyone skated the ramp all day and the pig was roasted on the vert ramp. After the sesh most hung around, partied and camped before we headed out on Sunday. Check out some photos below from Joe Brook, Daniel Cabral and Chris Martinez and watch the recap video from Schmitty and P-Stone from Thrasher. You can also see more photos over on the Thrasher site. Big thanks to Rob and crew for making it all happen!

Week 19: The Oil Pans “Creepy Tales” | Volcom Cyber Singles Club
Burger Records x Volcom present Cyber Singles Club, features music from the newest breed of Burger Records stars in the making, recorded exclusively at Volcom Studio, and will be released for free download & streaming every Monday for 20 weeks beginning April 17th. Week 19: The Oil Pans - "Creepy Tales"   Grab the free download Born from the toxic runoff of Disneyland, The Oil Pans bring their foggy vibes to the Volcom studio for their first-ever recording of "Creepy Tales." "The concept behind The Oil Pans is that we're the sludge that collects in the oil,” says vocalist Squelch. "We're the discarded filth that slips through the cracks and stains the countless driveways and roadways. We're that imprint that never goes away." The Oil Pans formed in 2001. "We came together with the idea of playing bluesy, melancholic punk rock," says Squelch. Joining the frontman is guitarist Daniel Bush, bassist Marquies Kharinval, drummer Damian "Chocolate" Edwards, and organist Tony Santos. Together, these musicians have displayed a rigorous focus on live performance. "We have always been a theatrical band," explains Squelch. "Our hope is that the audience captures our presence with the absurd antics and leaves the venue with unanswered questions that may be fulfilled in times of turmoil and strife. Life is theatrics. We all play roles. The Oil Pans tend to portray the sadistic nature of everyday life through dense fog and shadow play." The relationship between Burger Records and The Oil Pans goes back to the mid-to-late '90s when Lee from Burger would hang out with the Four Letter Words. The Four Letter Words would play with The Noise which was Lee and Sean's band. Later, they would form The Make Out Party with Dan, and Burger would release their 1st 7-inch back in the primal stages of the record label. The lineage runs deeps between The Oil Pans and Burger Records. The Oil Pans conjure timeless dread on this song. "'Creepy Tales' is about war stories," Squelch tells us. "It's the way that men talk to each other with their over-inflated egos and far-fetched stories. It's the pounding of the chest, look-at-me scenario that rifles through the song." With this initial recording under their belts, The Oil Pans are primed for more recordings. According to Squelch, "The Oil Pans definitely want to go back into the recording studio with the intentions of releasing an EP or even a full-length LP."

CJ Collins' first time to Spain for the La Kantera Pro
Cj Collins isn't your normal 14 year old boy. Not only does he absolutely rip on a skateboard, but he has more stamps in his passport than a most other kids his age. In June we took him to Getxo located in the Basque Country region of Spain for the 2017 La Kantera Pro. While he's been to Malmo, Sweden and Florianópolis, Brazil for the Vans Park Series, it was his first time to Spain and he was pretty excited. Before he hopped on a 14 hour flight to Bilbao, Spain he stopped by the Volcom HQ store to pick up some new clothes for the trip. CJ with a little wallride in the Volcom HQ store before picking up some clothes for his trip. Packing for his first time to Spain! Grabbing a drink at Volcom HQ in his new "Supply Stone" Pullover Hoodie In the Volcom HQ store CJ was really digging the 'Stone Supply' pullover hoodie, and a new pair of 'Frickin Modern' stretch chinos. Still with some time to kill before he had to head to the airport, he decided to hit the Volcom U.S. HQ skatepark for a quick sesh. CJ Collins dropping in, in his new Frickin Modern stretch chinos. CJ Stalefish at Volcom U.S. HQ With his bags packed and and passport in hand CJ hopped in the van and headed to the airport. The flight was delayed a half an hour but with the in the grand scheme of things what's another half an hour when you're waiting to get on a 14 hour flight? CJ taking his bags out of the van at the airport. Just waiting to get on the plane in the Lino Stone tee When he arrived in Bilbao, Spain he met up with the rest of the team including Grant Taylor, Collin Provost, Axel Cruysberghs, Omar Hassan and others at the airport as they were all flying in from various places at the same time. Once all together, the crew made it to the Moana Surf and Skate Hostel where they were staying. Complete with a mini ramp, little street course and all sorts of other stuff to get into, CJ was in heaven! After a solid nights rest the next day we headed down to La Kantera, an old skatepark with prime real estate on the beach where the contest was held, to get some practice in. The bowl the contest was in is more reminiscent of a backyard pool with a steep shallow end and 10 foot deep end. This made it a little difficult for the heavy hitters like Grant and Omar but for little CJ it was just his size. CJ wasted no time as he was frothing to skate, blasting airs in practice and figuring out his line for the contest. CJ blasting a stalefish in his 'Supply Stone' pullover hoodie The next day was the contest and CJ was put straight int the finals. While waiting for his heat him and Grant Taylor would stay warmed up on the old crusty halfpipe behind the stands. In his heats he would land trick after trick, really impressing the locals who've skated the bowl their entire life and the spectators who have never seen CJ skate in person. Every wall he would do a trick and the crowd would collectively wonder 'how did he just land that?!?' While the pros would blast huge airs and do difficult tricks, most of them had a hard time staying on their board for the entire time. The 'Frickin Modern' stretch chinos were basically made for boneless' like this! Stalefish in the deep end as the entire crowd watches. In the end CJ took home FIRST place! First time to Spain and skating the notoriously difficult La Kantera bowl, he came out on top! CJ was just as surprised as everyone else and the crew was extremely proud of our little guy. With CJ taking the top spot at the 2017 La Kantera Pro, everyone in the crew wanted to celebrate CJ's epic win, but how to you party with a 14 year old? While most of the crew enjoyed drinks by the beach with the rest of the skaters in the contest, CJ eventually made it back to the Hostel to rest up. Grant Taylor stoked for CJ after the contest! Next day we tried to get in the streets to hit some spots, but the rain wasn't letting that happen. Collin Provost was trying to explain '10% parties' to CJ, basically meaning that when you win a big contest prize you immediately spend 10% of the winnings celebrating. The question arose again of 'how do you celebrate with a 14 year old? Well if you're CJ Collins you spend it on a soccer ball to kick around with your bros, go souvenir bracelet shopping with Grant Taylor and of course, hit the arcade! First purchase with your contest winnings, a soccer ball! Just about 10 minutes later Grant accidentally kicked it to the water by where we were eating. (We eventually got it back though) Grant negotiating deals for souvenir bracelets for the entire crew. What better way to spend a rainy day then hitting the arcade with your buds. After some quality time at the Arcade we headed down to the beach for a mellow La Kantera Pro wrap party right next to the skatepark. With a decent amount of candy in his system, CJ had plenty of energy to spare so he played soccer with some of the locals on the beach for a few hours while the rest of the crew enjoyed drinks and food at the party. All that running on the sand got CJ tuckered out while the rain started to fall. By the end of the weekend it was unfortunately time to head home. Everyone flew out around the same time but still had plenty of time to kill in the airport while we waited. To pass the time CJ likes to draw in a sketchbook he carries around in his backpack. He likes to draw portraits of people and this was one of our video director Lannie Rhodes. Remy Stratton also pointed out that Grant Taylor used to do the same thing when he was that age too. CJ in the 'Base' tee with his portrait of Lannie while waiting for his flight home.

Week 18: Fatal Jamz "Heavenly Choir" | Volcom Cyber Singles Club
Burger Records x Volcom present Cyber Singles Club, features music from the newest breed of Burger Records stars in the making, recorded exclusively at Volcom Studio, and will be released for free download & streaming every Monday for 20 weeks beginning April 17th. Week 18: Fatal Jamz - "Heavenly Choir"   Grab the free download Fatal Jamz formed during a busy summer for singer Marion Belle. "I formed the project in 2013 in the middle of recording a record with Dan Horne (The Lilys + Beachwood Sparks) and a bunch of my favorite L.A. players," he says. "I had a group going at the time called Bowery Beasts and this record we were recording was going to be our second full length. It came out as something very different and it went from there into Fatal Jamz." The newly christened Fatal Jamz received some positive attention early on with a single. "I started producing singles with my friend Nic and we dropped 'Rookie' on the bandcamp and it immediately got a lot of love online," recounts Marion. "From that one song we got asked to tour with Sky Ferreira and Smith Westerns." Burger Records and Gnar Tapes released the debut Fatal Jamz album, Vol. 1 in 2013. "I met Sean and Lee initially through my friends at Gnar and The Memories," recalled Marion. "They have been very supportive, setting up shows and DJ nights. They are really the first people to give the music a platform which I've always appreciated. It's been easy and cool to be apart of what Burger's been doing, which is obviously historic." "Heavenly Choir" is the first new Fatal Jamz song since releasing Coverboy in 2016 on Lollipop Records. If you are picking up a dark romantic vibe, you aren't misled. "In my songs I'm the lord of the dark garden of dreams," explains Marion. "I live for romance and the danger of love." "Heavenly Choir" may in fact signal the direction for future Fatal Jamz. "I wanted to write something very blood, red and gothic," says Marion. "It ended up being a new kind of anthem for us and maybe unlocking a new direction for the next record."

Week 17: Part Time "Que Vida" | Volcom Cyber Singles Club
Burger Records x Volcom present Cyber Singles Club, features music from the newest breed of Burger Records stars in the making, recorded exclusively at Volcom Studio, and will be released for free download & streaming every Monday for 20 weeks beginning April 17th. Week 17: Part Time - "Que Vida"   Grab the free download Part Time was created by the band's mastermind, David Speck, in 2009. Already a veteran of bands in Austin and Oakland, David explains that Part Time was formed "simply by the grace of its substance." Since then, Part Time has released a string of full-length albums on several different labels starting with the 2009 self-titled release on Voice Academy Records, followed by two albums for Mexican Summer, What Would You Say? and PDA. They made their Burger Records debut in 2014 with Late Night with David Loca followed by Return To Cherry on Mother of Pearl. The last Part Time album, Virgos Maze, was released by Burger in 2015. "Burger Records is great," says David. "They believe in artists' dreams, which in turn realizes their own." Over the years, Part Time has seen several lineup changes. The "Regular Part Time Joes," as David describes it, "these days include: guitarist and keyboardist Billy Trujillo, bass barbarian Tony Leal, and our dear friend, the original atomic blonde on vocals, Kristin Caballero." Together, this group brings us a unique take on a '60s classic. As David puts it, "simply a silly punky / new wave cover of a song by Arthur Lee's 'Love' off of the Da Capo album.""

Post Heat Interviews – Day 2 US Open of Surfing Huntington Beach
The US Open of Surfing has landed in Huntington Beach, CA, and the waves are firing! The Volcom crew, including Team Manager and Coach, Matt "Bemmy" Bemrose, has been down on the beach every day watching our team riders surf their way through heats and rooting them on from the stands. Yesterday, we sat down with Bemmy to get some insight on what it takes to work with some of the world's top female surfers, differences between coaching women's surfing vs. men's surfing, and more. With Maud Le Car's big win yesterday against 6x World Champ, Stephanie Gilmore, and Coco Ho advancing to the quarterfinals (beating current World Champ, Tyler Wright), it's safe say Bemmy's on a good roll! How long have you been with Volcom I started surfing for Volcom when I was 17, then started working for Volcom full-time at 28. I’m 39 now, so about 23 years haha! When did you start working with Coco Ho and Maud Le Car? The first trip I did with Coco was in 2007 to Fiji. I wasn’t working directly with her then, but earmarked her as a future star. Actually, working directly with Coco, that began in 2012. Working with Maud has been on and off over the last two years, but if I get an opportunity to work with her at an event I’m all over it. Maud, Bemmy, and Coco celebrating after Maud's huge win over Steph Gilmore. Who was the first female surfer to ever impress you? Lisa Anderson. She really brought style into women's surfing. Is there a different approach you take when working with female surfers? A little more attention to detail. Things like: where to paddle out, setting lineups, holding priority, etc. More technical things, but women's surfing has come a long way and I've been really impressed with how Coco and Maud have handled the pressure of competition in and out of the water. Coco Ho How do you recognize a potential star athlete and what are some signs of a true competitor? A never-give-up attitude is the biggest telltale sign. Also, a true competitor shows signs of composure under pressure at an early age. Coco Ho mentally preparing before her heat. Outside competition, what are some signs of true surf talent vs. what can be taught in the water? A willingness to think outside the box and apply new maneuvers to your repertoire in a short amount of time shows true surf talent. How much of your job is life coach vs. surf coach? 50/50 for sure. Probably more life coach though haha! Maud Le Car greeted by boyfriend, Joan Duru, after her win against Steph. The US Open is a mad house full of people, competitors, fans, and brands to name a few. What can an event like this do for an up-and-coming surfer? Compete well and it can make you. For Maud, I guarantee this heat win against Steph Gilmore is the biggest confidence boost she’s ever had. With confidence comes self-belief. That’s all someone needs to take their surfing to the next level. Coco Ho has made her name on the scene and has done well at the US Open in past years, and she's just getting fired up! Maud Le Car qualified for this event through the trials, only to take out 6x World Champ Steph Gilmore in her Round 2 heat. How does that happen? What does it take, and do you think she'll be taking down bigger names in the future? What Maud just accomplished was outstanding. Beating one of the best female surfers ever in a CT event as a wildcard is hard to describe. It’s totally amazing in saying that Maud had the ability and firepower to beat Steph. We spoke all day long before her heat and worked out a tight heat strategy. We had Maud focus on her strengths with the mindset that any heat would be hers to win. When she matched up with Steph, it was business as usual. We spoke about controlling the heat from the start and sticking to her game plan, and that's exactly what she did. This win is life-changing and now Maud knows she has what it takes to mix it with the very best in the world. Coco Ho after her win this morning against current World Champ, Tyler Wright. All smiles!
