Searching for Surf & Shaping Surfboards in Morocco

In Morocco, 30 kilometers south of Casablanca lies the small town of Dar Bouazza, home to fisherman, farmers and the country's best left-hand break. Drawing surfers from around the globe in search of exotic empty waves, Dar Bouazza is also home to a sizable lot of surfers who have been drawn to it's wave that on a good day will run for over 500 meters.

On his recent trip to Morocco, our friend Carson Myers, who can usually be found shaping boards in Hawaii, was himself lured to Dar Bouazza where he could spend a couple weeks surfing, shaping and exploring.

"Going there I was thinking that I could bust out a board in one or two days just like back home. Little did I know that it would be like building a board in your back yard..."

Kai Shapes, the only local surf shop in Morocco that is shaping boards were generous hosts that turned their shaping room over to Carson where he quickly realized that there would be some challenges to his normal process.

"I had all my tools to shape the board but none for the other steps that go into completing a finished board. For example when we laid up some fiberglass to make some glass ons we didn't have a clean piece of glass but instead a piece of plexiglass. So when it came time to remove the panel from the glass, we had to use a metal spike to pry it off. And instead of cutting the fin templates out with a jig saw all we had was a metal disc grinder."

Over the course of the ten days it took to completely finish his board (normally a two-day process back home), Carson spent the rest of his time surfing and discovering the town and local culture.

"Unfortunately for us the waves weren't ever really going off. The beach break right in front of our house was usually our go to spot. Most of the time it was a little bit over head, glassy and peeling for 50 meters left and right."

While he may not have scored the best waves, journeying to a far-off place with a solid group of friends and the new found appreciation for those who facing the challenge of bringing the craft of shaping to foreign lands and making surfing accessible for the community, made for a trip that will not be soon forgotten.

"I am really appreciative of everyone who blessed me with their time and expertise on this trip. Kai Shapes, especially Scott and the guys at the shop. Zach Trein for the fins and my whole connection to Morocco and of course Josh Cohen for the photos and being an above par travel companion."

Week 11: Cowgirl Clue "Utopia" | 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 11: Cowgirl Clue - "Utopia"   Grab the free download Ashley Calhoun, aka Wu-Wu, aka Cowgirl Clue, made her Burger debut with one of the rarest and most sought-after Burger Records releases, the limited-edition Halloween split with The Garden from 2014. Since then she's expanded her excellent experimental pop sound into this wild one-woman project and released her debut EP, Limelite, on Burger Records cassette. Cowgirl Clue first experienced the Burger Records phenomenon from her hometown of Austin, Texas during SXSW. "My cousin owns a venue there called Hotel Vegas. They host Burgermania every year, so I started going and getting to know them," say Ashley. "Then I moved to Orange County and I happened to live down the street from them, so I kept seeing them at shows." Life in Orange County soon provided a new perspective into Burger's operations and influence. "It's just been growing for years. It's very developed now and there's an aesthetic that's prominent," she explains, "I think my perception of Burger Records changed as it grew." Like a lot of people on the scene, Burgerama was at the center of this experiential perception. "It’s all ages, so there are tons of kids going crazy throwing flips off the stage. I think that whoever is experiencing that for this time period is pretty lucky. Unlike shows I went to when I was younger, going to punk shows, I see so many women and so many girls and people of all ages. It gives people an opportunity to connect with like-minded creative, young individuals... just the community. It's really cool to see people come together for music and art." We are happy to premiere Cowgirl Clue’s latest song, "Utopia", an inspiring tune about keeping your passion true. "As far as Utopia goes, I wrote it to connect my life to the industry," she notes, "The lyrics are implying that money may or may not buy happiness, but in the end, the industry is expensive and tries to get the best of you and your utopia. I feel it's important to stay true to yourself in life and you can be who you want to be. That's why I wrote Utopia ;)."

Week 10: White Night "Dirty Water" | 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 10: White Night - "Dirty Water"   Grab the free download When attempting to describe the Fullerton / Anaheim, CA quintet, White Night (to those who have yet to give them a listen), one may face a challenge. Are they punk? Are they psychedelic? Are they attempting to go back to the days when pop or even pop-punk weren’t insulting things to be compared to? Or are they just plain ol' good time, hard-nosed rock and roll? The truth of the matter is that White Night is all of these things and more. While more bands are working to blur the traditional boundaries of nearly every genre, White Night fully embodies that melting pot sound which is reinvigorating rock and roll and its many sub-genres today. Like many bands that came before them, White Night was conceived as a way to meet girls. Guitarist and vocalist Frank Agnew, bassist and vocalist Jon Raines and drummer Mike Gonzales had previously played in bands embedded in the Orange County hardcore scene. But it wasn’t the best scene within which to reach girls, so they switched things up. "White Night started playing in mid-2008," says Jon. "Two of us had been playing together for a few years before that in Pterodacdudes and the Frank-fronted Shred Savage for about the same amount of time. Both bands were on the heavier side and we thought it would be cool to play stuff more pop-influenced and maybe more girls would come to the shows. The new sound soon found a home with their friends at Burger Records. "Sean and Lee are friends from way back," explains Jon. "Mike played in Thee Makeout Party for a bit and we've all been roommates at one point or another." The label would release White Night’s debut cassette Tour EP in 2009 which was followed by Immortal cassette in 2010, and most recently their full length album Weird Night in 2016. The band including Troy Rounsevllie on keyboard and Kevin Carle on guitar are working on their next record. They are also anticipating their first tour in Japan. Tour starts on July 20 and all Japanese dates are with Lenguas Largas from Tucson, Arizona. July 21 - Yokosuka Fuck Yeah w/ Mule Team, EXTRA PLANTS July 22 - Shimokitazawa Basement Bar (daytime show) w/ Number Two July 23 - Ashikaga Soundhouse Pico w/ Broken Mountain July 24 - Waseda ZONE-B July 27 - Tokushima w/ Silver Wigs July 28 - Osaka w/ Sanhose July 29 - Kyoto w/ Sanhose Catch up on previous week's releases: Week 1: The Side Eyes "Cat Call" Week 2: The High Curbs "Empty Bottles" Week 3: VAJJ "Honey Pie" Week 4: Wyatt Blair "Pop Your Heart Out" Week 5: The Flytraps "Female of the Species" Week 6: Hammered Satin "Upward Spiral" Week 7: Death Valley Girls "Born Again and Again" Week 8: Vision "Light" Week 9: Meow Twins "Ratchet Witch"

Week 9: Meow Twins "Ratchet Witch" | 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 9: Meow Twins - "Ratchet Witch"   Grab the free download Meow Twins are another great young band to emerge from the early days of Burger Records. Formed with two singers, aka Meow Twins, Candra Edwards and Lily Stretz linked together when they were freshman and sophomores in high school. Today, they are creating some of the most refreshingly unique and individually-sounding punk rock. The band was originally formed with the two singers, calling themselves "Twins" a la Meow Twins, though they are not actual twin sisters... more like cosmic, spiritual twins. Lily has put down the microphone and picked up the bass while Candra continues to hold down the lead vocals. They are joined by Ez Kramer on drums and Zaine Drayton on guitar, and currently call Long Beach, CA home. "In 2010 we started just going to shows at their record shop and then kinda met them I guess," says Lily. "We had friends that got on the label first and then kinda hooked us up," says Candra. "We were playing there too and setting up shows with our bands," explains Lily. "Most of the shows we went to there were shows we set up," adds Candra. Those who experienced Burger shop shows know what type of scene would gather. Zaine adds, "They had shows about twice a week. FREE shows twice a week!" Sean from Burger tells it like this: "Meow Twins were regulars at our record shop shows during the early years of our Fullerton store. They started as fans and before long started their own band and released their debut cassette (sold out, stream it on Spotify) on Burger Records! Double female punk vocals with a punk pedigree featuring the daughter of Corey Stretz of J.F.A.! Loud, fast and out of control, this band has been and will always be one of our favorites around here." They were also playing bigger shows at Burger events. There is one favorite show that sticks out. "Burger a Go-Go because you get free burgers," says Lily. "Best Coast played too," adds Ez. In February 2016, Meow Twins released their second Burger full length, Skin, and the band plans to hit the U.S. on tour this July, so keep an eye out for tour dates coming soon!

TOP 5 TOKYO TRAVEL TIPS!
Top Tokyo tips from our mates Fashion Stylist Jana Bartolo and Photographer Jason Henley who just visited the Volcom Tokyo store and ran wild Tokyo style..kawaiiiiii!   TOKYO TIPS! 1. Tokyo people are the best dressed and most open people in the world in terms of fashion, so don't be afraid to wear your best, weirdest or craziest things. 2. If you’re wanting to explore monuments/landmarks but still keen to shop the morning is generally best, a lot of Tokyo starts at 11am (shops don't open until then) you will also beat crowds by visiting monuments & landmarks early and still have time to cover the multitude of amazing stores after 11am! 3. As everything starts late, there aren't a lot of breakfast options in Tokyo, however unlike Australia their convenience store options are legit. Our personal favourite has to be family mart (their bakery goods are the bomb, try maple syrup stuffed pancakes and cheesecake bread are amazing, as is surprisingly their fried chicken and katsu!) 4. Definitely visit Tokyo Disney…Get there an hour before opening time and do not get distracted, head straight in to get a fast pass to beat ques! 5. Don't be a rude tourist. Try and learn hellos, say thank you and be warm, Japanese people are the loveliest most respectful people so try and be the same and they will appreciate the effort.  Visit the Volcom Store Tokyo!!  Jana Wears the Fox Tail Palm SS

Dedicated To Everyone That Cares About The Human Race | Cancel History. Stop Hatred.
On May 4th, 2017 a small group gathered at the Volcom office in Costa Mesa to listen to each other talk about their hopes, thoughts, fears and feelings on the myriad of issues facing the human race. It was truly an inspiring night on so many levels. So often we find ourselves talking, but not really listening, making it easy to forget that it’s love, acceptance and an understanding of the past that will give us the power to change our future.
