    VOLCOM ROAD RAGER - "LARRY VS. THE KID"

    OVER THE COURSE OF THREE TRIPS AND WELL OVER 3,000 MILES the Volcom Road Rager went across the entire coast of Florida, from Vancouver down to Boise, ID and Montreal to Chicago, IL. With a star-studded cast of shredders including Axel Cruysberghs, Grant Taylor, Collin Provost, Jackson Pilz, Arto Saari, Omar Hassan, Milton Martinez, CJ Collins, Simon Bannerot, Chris Pfanner, Alec Majerus, Louie Lopez and Henry Gartland, there was plenty of footage logged! Watch the video above and check the photos below, don't forget to check the article from the January 2019 issue of Thrasher Magazine as well! WHO’S LARRY? AND WHO’S THE KID? After a long day of skating Omar Hassan turns into his alter ego, Larry who is somehow even more fun to be around then Omar. The kid is CJ Collins, because well, he’s literally a kid. They’ve known each other since Omar first met CJ back at the Vans Skatepark in Orange, CJ’s memory is foggy, but we’ve narrowed it down to sometime around when he was 8 years old. Since then they’ve been on multiple trips together and has created a very unique relationship. Imagine when you were 14 years old, you had so much energy and it all needed to go into something. For CJ, it goes into torturing Omar, especially on those long drives in the bus. Everything you could imagine from wet willies to a soccer ball to the head, CJ doesn’t hold back! Omar, or Larry, doesn’t let it go either, he’s gotten back at CJ just as bad. A friendly headlock would put CJ back in line anytime! Shop Volcom Brand Jeans Shop Skateboarding Collection

    VOLCOM'S COOKED KIWI CAM

    SKATEBOARDING. SNOW. NEW ZEALAND. WHAT MORE IS THERE TO SAY? All combined made a recipe for an epic trip. Somewhere deep inside the walls of the Volcom HQ the idea was born to think of a place where Skateboarding, Snowboarding, and Surfing can all come together. With that in mind, we set off for two weeks to head to Auckland, NZ to hit the streets and meet up with our fellow board brethren for a little pow pow action. Featuring Axel Cruysberghs, CJ Collins, Jackson Pilz, Jesse “Red” Noonan, and Arto Saari. CJ Collins setting up a board for the trip We got in around 7 in the morning after a long 13 hour flight and as soon as we walked through the doors our Ozzie mates were up and at em ready to explore. Skateboarders up at 7am ready to go? A very strange phenomena but luckily the time change played in our favor and we were out and about bright and early every morning. Downtown Auckland was loaded with spots. The boys were all amped from their flat whites and long blacks (NZ for “coffee”) and were on an all-out rampage through the bustling metropolis. Axel managed to swing a nice little wallie 180 while dodging cars and some, let’s just say, interesting people. Quickly after, Red got gnarly and barged through with a fs wallride yank out. The session was immediately followed with the obligatory meat pie stop. After hitting a few spots we arrived at an undisclosed backyard pool. We were super lucky to skate it according to a couple of the local bros. You know who you are and thanks for letting us come! The session started heating up after a few cold beverages and next thing you know the jacuzzi cover was getting taken out. Our OZ legend, Red, was brave enough to step to the jacuzzi grind. “I’m more of an Evil Kinevil kind of skater”, although the steezy crail among other tricks begged to differ. First to take a dip: the board. Then a shoe. Then Red. Soaking wet he pulled it off with a nose yank-in to boot. Little CJ took advantage of the photo op and blasted a couple FSO’s. He got a little brave with a front feeble poked out and came inches away from Red’s face while he was enjoying a soak and a beverage (not pictured). Huge props to our Kiwi friends and their hospitality. After stacking clips for almost week it was time to meet our bros in the mountain town of Wanaka. It’s very rare that all three teams come together as one. We had everyone from an Olympian: Torgeir Bergrem, a Skate Legend: Arto Saari, and Life Legend: Red. Jackson touched snow for the first time at 27 years old and even took a few laps. Ozzy Wright was handling some smooth layback carves and Axel was ripping the half pipe like he was there with the snow team – kid is good at everything. All in and all one for the books. Our nice little mid-summer / Kiwi winter getaway was a nice break from the Southern California heat. SHOP Volcom Skateboarding Collection SHOP Volcom Snow Outerwear

    “Mexico City to San Miguel de Allende” on Motorcycles Visiting Ancient Structures + Skateboarding | Speak Two The Wind

    This bonus episode of Speak Two The Wind finds CJ Collins, Collin Provost, Jackson Pilz, and others wandering through Mexico on motorcycles, embracing the ancient colonial architectures, 2,000-year-old pyramids, and various skate spots as they make their way from Mexico City to San Miguel de Allende. After the U.S. and Europe tours were finished, we all agreed we had one more trip left in our reserve tanks, so we devised a plan to visit San Miguel de Allende, a colonial-era city 170 miles northwest of Mexico City. We took off from Mexico’s capital on motorcycles with a solid crew and ended up discovering a place called Tula, populated with 2,000-year-old pyramids and structures, it was quite a sight to see. Continuing our journey, we finally made it to San Miguel de Allende where we stayed at our friend Luka Barrena’s house who coincidentally has a skate bowl in his backyard. The bowl was perfect and his backyard was full of tents and motorcycles. A local chef even volunteered to cook the local cuisine for us. We shared good laughs and good food with the local crew, skating and sharing stories before it was time to head back to Mexico City. Once we arrived in the capital, our friends Los Viejos, who are a local metal band, played a show for us to give us a proper send off.

    Episode 2 of Speak Two The Wind continues with the Volcom Skate Team as they find themselves motorcycling and skateboarding through Arizona and Utah, with stops at Glen Canyon Dam, Horseshoe Bend, Saint George, Valley of Fire and back to the Grand Canyon. After hitting spots in Arizona the crew hit the road heading north. As Chris Pfanner describes it, "it was like riding though a postcard for two weeks." Between the rides, spots were hit and tricks were documented. Towards the end of their two week journey the bond between crew only grew stronger and there was a yearning for more rides and open roads. With such a diverse group of international visitors on U.S. soil, there was no way they weren't going experience the crown jewel of U.S. Natural Park System. So with two weeks of grease and sweat in their jeans, they rode the south rim of the Grand Canyon to explore and take in its beauty. A perfect way to end and epic journey.

    Episode 3: "Belgium to Germany" The Skate Team Arrives in Germany with The Picturebooks | Speak Two The Wind

    Episode 3 of Speak Two The Wind finds the crew still riding high from the American leg of their two-wheeled journey. The second leg of this journey picks up with the Volcom Skate Team as they arrive in Belgium and battle the elements on their way to meeting up with The Picturebooks for a private performance at their home studio. There's little protection from the elements on a motorcycle and when the crew started their journey through Europe, mother nature decided to throw them a curve ball. Riding hundred sixty kilometers in the rain through Belgium to Germany they rendezvoused with The Picturebooks who accompanied them to their studio in Gütersloh, Germany. Son of legendary skateboarder Claus Grabke, Fynn and his buddy Philipp Mirtschink are the duo that make up The Picturebooks. Having both skateboarding and life on the road in common, the guys had no problem fitting in with the crew as they took them in from the rain and showed them the finer side of the local scene as they made their way to Germany. Local skateboarder and motorcycle enthusiast, Jonathan Thijs, also tagged along for the ride. After many miles on the road they finally reached their destination, the DIY skatepark in Hanover, Germany where a proper session went down before the rain crept back in. After the passing shower the crew saddled up and continued the journey further into the European countryside.

On the way they stop in Berlin to pick up Arto Saari and Collin Provost. Known as one of the 'happiest places on earth' Copenhagen, Denmark was a much needed stop. Luckily, Kasper Krogh, one of the owners of Motorius, a vintage motorcycle shop in Copenhagen, was kind enough to give them a warm and dry place to sellep for a few nights. Located in the heart of downtown and close to Copenhagens many skate spots the crew was eternally gratefull for Kasper's hospitality. After a few days in the city on four wheels, and two, it was time to hit the road to the next, and final, destination.

Episode 5: "Denmark to Sweden" The Journey Comes to an End at Fücker Fest | Speak Two The Wind
Episode 5 of Speak Two The Wind joins the Volcom Skate Team on motorcycles through Denmark and Sweden to camp and hang at Fücker Fest, a vintage motorcycle festival in Sweden. The crew took a ferry from Denmark to Sweden, trying to escape the rain that had followed them all the way from Belgium, but as they got off the ferry in Sweeden, it was apparent that the situation had gotten even worse. At high speeds on the motorcycles the drops of rain would turn into bullets of ice as they headed up the western coast of Sweden. After some parks and spots on the way, their destination was Fücker Fest just north of Gothenberg. Invited by the Jokers Motercycle Family, it was a warm welcome of familiar souls to such a foreign land.

My City - Mar del Plata, Argentina - Milton Martinez | Volcom Skate
My City is a Volcom Skate video series showcasing the Latin American Skate Team as they take us through their hometowns, showing us where they grew up skating and what struggles they had to overcome along the way. In episode nine of My City we visit 27-year old Milton Martinez from Mar del Plata, Argentina. Mar del Plata, Argentina is a very warm, crowded place during the summers, and typically a lonely and cold place during the winters. Also known as the surf capital in Argentina, Mar del Plata is one of the most visited towns in Argentina during the summer for tourists. With this influx of tourism every year, there is new infrastructure in the city, and thus, new skate spots. You would find most of the spots near the coast, however, there are some spots farther inland that are worth the drive. As we know surf and skate go hand-in-hand, and it’s because of that, skateboarding in Mar del Plata has a lot of heritage, and that’s why most of the best skaters of Argentina, such as Milton Martinez, come from this city. A few years ago, the government learned skateboarding is a growing sport in the city and built skate parks throughout the area to support the activity, and the growth has been exponential and well-received among the locals. Milton Martinez in his hometown of Mar del Plata, Argentina Shop Volcom Stone Made Jeans & Chinos » Milton Martinez and his family have true skateboarding roots, starting with his parents. His dad was a well-known skateboarder in his prime, and his mom owns a local skate shop in Mar del Plata called Social Skate Shop, which has been in the family for years. We could fairly say it’s impossible for you to walk around the city and not see a skateboarder rolling around on his board. Milton’s two younger brothers also skate, and rip, and definitely tear up the local skate scene in Mar del Plata Between the skate-friendly city and authorities, the lively beach scene, and amazing food, for some, it’s a dream place to live. Given the city’s proximity to the ocean, the port is a great place to find good seafood restaurants. But, without a doubt, if you’re visiting Argentina, you must have an “asado” which is an outdoor Argentinian grill with your friends, similar to barbecues in the United States. Milton Martinez Summer in Mar del Plata, Argentina is the best time if you want to let loose and party a bit. The day has more daylight and the new bars zone next to the beach is the best if you want to dance, drink and watch the sunset (or sunrise) on the beach. With all this action, the police are usually respectful and don't get too aggressive unless something crazy happens. They understand the city and understand skateboarders, and skateboarders understand them. If skaters are caught trespassing by the police, the skaters are typically just told to leave with no serious tickets or repercussions. Growing up as a skateboarder in Mar del Plata, Argentina is not so bad. Plenty of skateparks and city structures, and a welcoming society. With guys like Milton Martinez going pro and inspiring a new wave of up-and-coming skateboarders from the area, you can be sure this isn't the last time you'll hear of Mar del Plata.   MUSIC: Horcas - "Punto Final" Horcas - "En La Jaula" PRODUCED BY: Diego Espinoza FILMED BY: Leonardo Mercado, Ivan Kavaliauskas, Jonatan Luna, Salvador D' elia, Facundo Bertelli, Lucio Sandoval EDITED BY: Doceseis   Watch Episode 1 with Jhancarlos Gonzalez Watch Episode 2 with Jesus Munoz Watch Episode 3 with Kervin Miranda Watch Episode 4 with Giovanni Vianna   FOLLOW THE STONE...

FIRST SESH IN CJ COLLINS' BACKYARD
Like any 14 year-old skater, having a backyard bowl to skate anytime you want seem like an absolute dream! The skatepark itself was a 3 year journey, CJ and his dad started digging up their backyard when he was only 10 years old. After catching wind of it's completion we decided to get a small crew together and head over there to check it out. Pedro Barros was in town and hanging out with Omar Hassan hitting all sorts of parks around town, so it was a no brainer to get them on the sesh. Fellow Toy Machine teammate, Collin Provost is always down to shred, so he met us at CJ's too. We also hear that the park had a built in grill too so picking up some grillables was a must. Our Sunday sesh at CJ's was shaping quite nicely! We called CJ up to get more on the process. He was in the middle of doing his homework, so he wasn't too bummed on chatting with us for a few minutes. Watch the video above and read more below for the full scoop: When did you decide to make a skatepark in your backyard? We started digging up the backyard like 3 years ago. We didn't really know what we were going to do, but then, not too long ago, we were just like fuck it! We're going to build it. Did you have a design? or did they design it for you? What did you want in it? Well yeah, we like didn't even design it. We drew it on a piece of napkin or something like that. Then we ended up having Remy hook us up with his guy (Dug Ketterman of DugOut Design Studios, who also helped design the Volcom HQ skatepark) to do the 3D render or whatever it's called. How long has it been in the backyard now? It's been in the backyard for like 3 or 4 months now. What was your first reaction to seeing it and skating it? Dude, I was so stoked! I couldn't frickin' believe it, I was so hyped! Who else has skated it beside yourself? Any other skaters stop by yet? All of the builders have skated it. We had a little BBQ when it was done and had a few people over, but not a lot of people have skated it yet really. So it's not too blown out yet? No, not yet. Were Collin, Pedro and Omar kind of the first pro's to skate it? Pretty much, yeah they were the first ones to really skate it, besides me. How often do you use that BBQ? It was looking pretty clean when we rolled through... We only used it like once before you guys did. That was on New Years. How stoked were you to drive the van? Dude! I was so stoked! I was ready to ram anything and everything! We should have had you do more than one take... (laughs) Yeah! I would have too much fun. I feel like it would have gotten dangerous pretty quick. You're coming to Florida on the next Volcom 'Road Rager' trip right? Yeah, it's like the end of February, beginning of March right? Yup! We have a good crew. Have you ever been to Florida before? I've been once like 4 years ago for Tampa Am. I think that was the first time Volcom ever flew me out to a contest. Oh yeah, damn, 4 years ago, you were like 10 years old. Did you enter last year? I didn't go last year, but I think I'm going this year, it's going to be rad. I just watched that Transworld Skateboarding video of you and the Toy Machine dudes in China, looks like you got some epic footage. That wasn't your first time to China though, right? You've been there for the Vans Park Series before right? Yeah, but the Toy Machine trip was before I went there for the Vans Park Series, So yeah, the Toy Machine trip was my first time to China. Oh rad! What was that like? It was sick, but we were in the middle of nowhere, just going to random spots in China. It was brutal, I was sick for like the first 2 weeks! I don't know what what was wrong, My eyes felt so dry that I felt like I just needed to sleep, I also had a gnarly fever. Did Collin take care of you? They would just go skate spots, I would just chill at the hotel. They were like "Oh you'll be fine, just stay in bed." When I was feeling better, I would go out and skate in the morning but by the end of the sesh I would just be dusted! What else do you have going on? Um, not much right now, just a lot of homework. might meet up with a couple homies this weekend. Not sure what we're doing yet. So if you're homeschooled, what grade are you in? how does that work? Well, I'm in 9th grade, I don't know if that's different than regular school. Sound about right... Yeah, I'm in 9th grade but really suck at school. I only have one F. That's in Biology. What pants you running these days? Right now, I'm wearing just the Frickin' Modern Chinos, I've been trying out some denim, I think the Solvers, but I usually just run the chinos. What would your dream sesh be in you park? If you could have any 3 dudes, who would it be? Um... I would say Grant Taylor, Collin's already been here, that was my dream! (laughs) I'd like to see Dustin here too, I would like to see what he could do, he'd just fly around and bail alot, that would be rad. (laughs). What's the deal with that drainage grate you have in there too? That thing is sick! Yeah! That was me and my dad's idea. One of my dad’s friends does metal work and he did it for us. It's pretty sick, we wanted to do one for the BBQ grill too. All right, well I'll let you get back to your homework, don't want anymore F's. Thanks for your time bud! For sure dude! Later!

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.
