The Sprocking Cat is still sprocking! What is there to be said about him that you don't already know? Giving Terje a snowboard at the ripe young age of 13 was like passing a basket ball to Michael Jordan for the first time.. The rest is history.. With more titles, movie parts, trophies and "Perfect lines" under his belt than a retired porn star, Terje keeps spending his days doing what he's always done, circumnavigating the globe in search of the best snow, waves and coconuts. Then there's the running of his own event, The Arctic Challenge, being a gardening dad or a distinctly skilled soccer player.. His highest air record from 2007 still stands proud to this day and if you haven't seen Terje's seminal signature movie "Subjekt Haakonsen" then go do your homework. Next year you can see him in Veeco's upcoming film "True To This".

What was your first snowboard? Burton Elite 150

What was your first snowboard movie that got you hooked? Snow shredders! Sims freestyle flick

Besides snowboarding? Parenting, Football, chess, gardening and cooking

Future plans? Yes, gone make a dream garden while I'm flipping

Volcom at Visions Festival | London, England
This past Saturday Dustin Dollin, Ben Raemers, Harry Lintell, Eniz Fazliov and Lois Pendlebury spent some time in the UK at Visions Festival – a Real Life Happening spread across several venues in Hackney, London. Following on from two critically acclaimed and sold out years, the festival hosted a whole range of happenings from the East London Print Makers screening onto our shirts to the Fat White Family band, The Hinds and more playing killer shows in this third year sold out event making the whole thing a blast from start to finish. Volcom also took along our two prize winners who hung out with the crew for the day after winning Volcom Brand Jeans, travel, hotels, guest list tickets and plenty of beers. Matthew Rutherford -­‐ Prize Winner: “Festival tickets, travel, hotel, jeans. I’ve been looking forward to the bands, the food and the beer. You can’t beat this can you, really?" The Fat White Family smashed through a killer set with their frontman Lias getting well amongst it all with the crowd. Our Finnish connection, Eniz Fazliov enjoying the Visions outdoor space… …With our Aussie connection Dustin. The Visions blimp flew high and mighty all day above the festival. Our contest winners Matt Rutherford and Joe Seager sank a few beers with Dustin and lurked heavily with us throughout the festival. Good times! Lois Pendlebury and Harry Lintell. A couple of teeth short. Dustin sees downtime, Lois sees playtime. No caption required Our pal and PR master, Leanne trying to work out what trouble Harry’s hijinks will land them in next. The party crew outside the Oval Space venue. Low key Raemers. Quietly fuelling the fire… Theres something out there. Claw Marks really, really know how to put on a show. Hanging from the rafters. Literally. London Fields in between shows. Dustin & Eniz take five… Always on. Dustin kept everyone entertained – especially our two new mates. The face of a man with a plan REDDOS! Stretching before hitting the next show. That’s some serious knowledge! Ben Raemers. Taxi service in full swing.

Ben Raemers is one of skateboarding's best dudes. He is a riot to be around and is amazing to watch on his skateboard.

You may not be able to understand what he is saying, but you will be in awe of him nonetheless...and you might just be impressed by his talents on his board as well.
