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 Snow's The Launch - Watch Now!
Last month our Volcom Snow ams, better known as the Stone Army crew, loaded up the RV and charged up to Bear Mountain for Snowboarder Magazine’s ninth annual The Launch 2016 presented by Volcom. The Launch is an assembly of age 21 and under riders handpicked by the Snowboarder Magazine crew for a 4 day media shred frenzy, and this year it was brought back to the San Bernadino mountains and constructed by the Bear Mountain crew full of endless rails, transition and kicker possibilities. Despite some windy, blizzard, and sometimes great conditions the boys were on fire with non-stop bell-to-bell action! When it was all said and done, Brock Crouch was awarded Standout and 10 yr old Aussie Valentino Guseli took home the Super Grom award for charging almost every feature in the park!

Austrian Rider Roli Tschoder stretches his back leg over the Kaunertal access road
  Here’s a short edit showing how amazing the conditions are up at Kaunertal Glacier right now, only 40 minutes from the Volcom Snow Team house. There’s hardly anyone around, aside from the like-minded, the park is in mint condition, you can ride from 3200 to 2000m and there’s even pow on offer. Way better conditions now  than in December/January.  Roli from Ischgl certainly has his priorities straight.. But unless you can ride like Roli, the we recommend you spare the stretching until you’re safely back on the ground again.  Now run to the hills… Pic and edit by Flo Achenrainer

Retrospection video by Olivier Gittler and Arthur Longo
If you plan on only seeing ONE snowboard video this year, then here you have it. Volcom lifer Olivier Gittler and his trusty collaborator Arthur Longo just put together a full length edit of all their Instagram short clips from the winter past.. In it you’ll see their unique take on snowboarding. And as you’ll watch you’ll slowly realise that “higher and further”’ isn’t always the goal. That it is just as much about the right turn at the right place at the right time. Or a backflip? And another backflip.. Backflips are never wrong. At times it might even look like the boys are bored with their day job (?!?) as they seem to be surfing more than snowboarding. But why not? Therein lies the beauty of this edit.. Get out off the park and look at what’s hidden behind it.  Or even IN it, as you follow our friends and their friends, finding park lines yet to be thought of.. Or making their own park outside of the park.. This is truly beautiful Olivier .. Please do even more of what you’re already doing.  Filmed on location in Les Des Alpes, Kitzsteinhorn, Chamonix, US Open, Arlberg and more Music: Leopard Ale IG: @leopard_ale
