Volcom Hot Spot // Toulouse

Toulouse, the pink city, is nicknamed after the beautiful red brick that makes the people of the city see life in pink! Ranked on top for its quality of life, vitality and youth, it combines the advantages of a big city but in a more town like athmosphere. The particularity of Toulouse is to have several neighborhoods that each one attracts different communities. This week, Luc and his team, from the Toulouse’ Volcom Store, serves us with the must-go places in the area.

 

Where to have a drink?

All students cluster around St. Peter's Square, along the Garonne. This is the perfect place to start your night in a bar or just chill on the afternoon.

Chez Tonton (Pastis ô maitre) is the landmark of the students and athletes where the atmosphere is always lively and friendly. Prices are inexpensive both daytime and evening and the terrace overlooking the square is very nice.

Trendy people will gather at La Couleur de la Culotte , which means the color of the pants. If you want to find out what color this is, you’ll have to go to that place in the evening. This bar is open all day, giving you the opportunity to eat lunch, have a drink at any time and prepare for the evening when DJ’s will make you dance. The interior is original and you will easily feel at home.

For a decidedly more rock'n'roll atmosphere, the place to go is Le Saint des Seins. Here plaid shirt are rigor, the speaker volume is at maximum, you don’t talk but shout and that’s why people love it.

Gabriel Peri Street is the spot where you can meet board sport lovers. Many of the bars on this street are reproducing a similar vibe to all the surfy ones that you can find on the Atlantic coast in the summer months. This is the case of Connexion-Café, which scene attracts different groups of music.

Where to eat something?

Place de la Bourse, where the Volcom Store is located, is a historical place. Tour guides always visit it and for your interest, it’s best known for all its side streets where hipsters and other streetwear friendly shoppers come.

 

In the district, many bars and restaurants offer original concepts as the Point d’Ogre. In this restaurant, not ogre, but only greedy gourmets. The Point d’Ogre, is the ideal place for feasting: you’ll love it for its sausages and its Southwest’ gourmet specialties.

 

Le Picotin is another restaurant with an original concept. At this place there’s actually no need for knives or forks: it’s all about eating with your fingers! The principle is friendly and recreational: get strapped with a large bib to avoid catastrophes, then choose at your convenience out of the great dishes brought to your table. From appetizers to dessert, you will not need cutlery.

A classic, l’Entrecôte opened in 1962 and still offers the same concept: a single dish consisting of a sirloin 250g piece accompanied by homemade chips served at will. Located in one of the main street of Toulouse city center, this restaurant offers a nice summer terrace.

 

Where to be True To This?

Regarding skate spots, you will not be outdone. The Skatepark of Ponts Jumeaux is the closest to the city center. Recently redone, both beginners and experienced enjoy it. In case you don’t have enough space to express yourself, many cities in the periphery will allow you to do it such as Saint-Orens, Tournefeuille, Balma or even Esqualcens.

Before hitting the streets of Toulouse you might want to pop in at the Volcom Store and update your wardrobe with some of the season’s new arrivals.

Volcom Welcomes Hailey Langland to Global Snow Team
Hailey Langland has been making a name for herself since she started snowboarding at age five. She exists in changing time zones, her passport stamped with groomer laps, take-offs and landings. She's got a front three that floats for days and radiates a style that's beyond her years. She grew up paddling into waves and pushing down streets in beachside San Clemente, CA. She first made turns at Bear Mountain and now calls Mammoth’s Main Park home, both proving grounds for sovereign snowboarders. She's fluid and explosive. She has a method that turns heads. It's the kind of kick-out that can't be learned. It's built-in from birth, harkening the past that's built for the future. We can't be more excited to welcome Hailey to the Volcom Family. She brings an impressive past, a promising future, and an unmatched personality which radiates passion and perseverance. While she joins us now, she has always been destined to the Stone. It was only a matter of time for the stars to align, and that time is now. Hailey Langland. Photo: Mike Pham // @phamuel "I'm psyched to be joining the Volcom Family! It's a dream come true to be part of a family that's much bigger than just snowboarding. I can't wait to see where this journey takes me." Hailey’s collection of heavy medals is already plush, though she’s truly just getting started. She landed a first-ever cab double ten in the 2017 X Games and earned her first Aspen gold. See? Just getting started. She’s logged time on podiums around the world. Slopestyle? Check. Big Air? Check. Three years in a row, she’s won the Drink Water Rat Race—a banked slalom where just getting to the bottom is a victory. And Hailey’s been the fastest. Three times. She’s the future of women’s slopestyle, yet her ease and authority with which she puts down tricks stretches far beyond contest boundaries. She’s the future of women’s snowboarding. Scratch that. She’s the future of snowboarding. Hailey wearing the Taylor Jacket (available in 3 colorways). Photo: Vernon Deck // @vernondeck Hailey's energy and style are pure Volcom. I’m super hyped on what she brings to the program. She's got full approval from the team. It's on!!!" -Remy Stratton, SVP Global Skate & Snow Hailey is serious about style and truly loves to ride. It's visible in every turn she makes, every slash, and every air she attempts. It's not fabricated. It's natural. Established at a very young age. At only seventeen, she's both a beacon to snowboarding's roots and a flare to the future, lighting up what's possible when talent, grit, and creativity are fused together. She says, "I cannot stress it enough how much style matters. We're all becoming robots out there, it's driving me freakin' nuts." Hailey on a recent trip in Saas'Fee, a resort village in the Swiss Alps. She has been True To This since she first stood sideways, but now, with the nourishment of the Stone, she can further feed her freedom of expression, and we are so stoked to welcome her to the family.

SouthBank - There's always something different going on Where was the first place you skated? Mile End Skate park. I remember passing the skate park and bare wanted to skate so my dad got me one of them Argos decks and I went with him and taught myself. Where is the last place you skated? Bay 66. But I didnt really skate it because on the way I tried bombing some fat steep hill and ate the most shit, that's the same day  broke my leg. How many bones have you broken? I broke like 3 bones in my leg but I cant remember which ones. Tell us about your injury... I dont remember how I broke them because I was drunk. I ended up going to a friends house and sleeping it off but in the morning it was soooo swollen. I couldnt move it so was time for hospital. Best thing about skating... You can have fun without having to pay for anything Worst thing about skating... There's nothing really bad about skating except when guards try and stop you from skating a spot and when it rains.

LONDON PHOTOGRAPHER LEILA AFGHAN IN NYC WITH SKATE GIRLS BRIANA AND YASMEEN
We were fortunate enough to sit with the 3 coolest chicks we know and ask them about everything skate. If you don’t know them already, you will. London based photographer (@leilaafghan), New York skater and model Briana King (@brianaking_) and Brooklyn babe Yasmeen Wilkerson (@yaz.so.mean) strutted their stuff in front of the camera and gave us some insight into their world. Leila, what's your favorite type of photography style and atmosphere to shoot? LEILA: I like weird and surreal - I shoot digital and film, but prefer the dreamy effect with film. When did you start taking skate pics and what took you there? LEILA: I started in fashion styling and photography, but am now progressing and combining documentary style, hence, taking pictures of me and my friends. Where is your favorite spot to shoot skate? LEILA: New York. Favorite spot to skate? YASMEEN: My favorite spot to skate is something new I've been fucking with called Delancey spot or BOCA LES spot. Its a walkway near the Willy B Bridge in Manhattan with a cement block, benches, curbs and other diy stuff. BRIANA: Coleman skate park. Where is the first place you skated? YASMEEN: The first place I skated was an empty parking lot by my house. I was too intimidated to skate in the open as I do now, and I barely knew how to push so I would take my board out there and try to ollie and get comfortable. BRIANA: Out front of the apartment. Where was the last place you skated? YASMEEN: LES skate park is the last place I skated. BRIANA: Blue Park Brooklyn. How many bones have you broken? BRIANA: 1 ankle. I attempted to ollie over 4 decks in front of a four stair, rolled my ankle, broke it, and couldn't trick or treat that night with my newly broken ankle. YASMEEN: My wrist (Smith fracture). Best thing about skating? YASMEEN: Best thing about skating is everything about it. The little lessons it gives you in humility, confidence, and persistence. Skateboarding taught me that strength isn't always physical. BRIANA: The homies! If I didn't skateboard I would be a lonely bub in NYC. And the worst thing about skating? BRIANA: There is no worst thing. YASMEEN: The fuck boys. ALL PHOTOS BY LEILA AFGHAN
