Bryan Iguchi was born and raised in Southern California. He grew up riding Snow Summit in the heat of snowboarding’s up rise, and was a key element to the progression of man made snowboard parks. Soon after, he packed up shop and escaped for the mountains, landing in Wyoming. Two decades later, Guch is now the Godfather of the Jackson Hole snowboard community. He’s 38 years old, but snowboards twice as much as your average 18-year-old, and continues to push the level of his riding every time he straps in. In 2012, Bryan shared a video part with long time friend and team member, Jamie Lynn, in Volcom’s film, IP2. This winter Guch will be staring in the newest Veeco Production, True To This, a feature film celebrating America's first boarding company. Bryan was one of the first snowboarders added to the Volcom Stone team roster in 1991, and has become the foundation of what Volcom Snowboarding is today. Bryan Iguchi is Volcom Snowboarding…

VOLCOM ZIP TECH® JACKET-TO-PANT SYSTEM KEEPS SNOW OUT
  CONNECT FROM THE LEFT, ZIP TO THE RIGHT, COVER & SHRED!   Volcom has officially patented Zip Tech®, our originally designed and heavily imitated jacket-to-pant interface. Zip Tech® enables you to zip the powder skirt of virtually any Volcom snow jacket to any Volcom snow pant, keeping the snow out and the heat in, without restricting movement. Falling has never been more enjoyable. It's no secret, being cold and wet is the easiest way to ruin a good day on the hill. And let's face it, everyone falls down, slides out, sits on an icy/wet chairlift and so on. It is snowboarding after all, and snow is going to try to find a way up your jacket and down your pants, soaking your base layers making it difficult to regulate your body temperature and in general cause you discomfort. Which is why over a decade ago the design team at Volcom developed the innovative Zip Tech® "zip your jacket to your pants" system for Volcom Outerwear as the first line of defence in keeping your body dry and your stoke high. Volcom Outerwear Zip Tech®   Inside and around the bottom of Volcom Outerwear Zip Tech® jackets is an inner powder skirt with a zipper running around the skirt that connects to a corresponding zipper track that sits just below the belt line of Volcom Outerwear Zip Tech® pants. Once connected, this hidden interface is the best barrier against snow finding its way into your outerwear. No other method of attaching a powder skirt or waist gator to your pants, be it through use of a series of buttons and clips, is as impenetrable to snow or offers the freedom of easy layering underneath as the patented Volcom Zip Tech® system does. Cross compatible between Volcom Outerwear jacket and pants styles as long as both feature Zip Tech®, the system also works across sizes, so that a small Zip Tech® jacket will work with a large Zip Tech® pant.

Scotty James Half Pipe Jam
On Wednesday Scotty James and Torgeir Bergrem brought to life an epic Half Pipe jam at Perisher. The weather turned on us but that didn’t stop the good times! The team consisted of Scotty James, Torgier Bergrem, Joss Mcalpin, Super grom Valentino Gusseli and pro skater Reece Warren. Torgeir soaring through this Method. We had loads of prizes being awarded for stylish methods, handplants and even the oldest competitor in the pipe. The turn out was amazing with the crowd ranging from kids as young as 5 to people in their 50’s. Scotty James airborne with Torgeir high on his heels. Young guns were sending themselves down the pipe all day. Winners are grinners. Scotty and Torgeir spent the day awarding the prizes and hanging with their fans. A big thank you to Perisher resort and their Terrain Parks team for getting the pipe ready.

SCOTTY JAMES OLYMPIC PODIUM PARTY
If you were in Australia over the past few weeks and you happened to turn on the TV or pick up a newspaper, no doubt you would have heard the name Scotty James more than a few times. Whilst you were enjoying the Aussie Summer, Scotty was in a very cold Korea representing Australia at the highest level in the 2018 Winter Olympics. Holding the Aussie flag and leading out the rest of the Australian team, Scotty made Australia proud. Most of Australia tuned in to support Scotty, embracing all those emotions as he competed in the Pipe, giving Australian’s the feeling of being right there on the slopes amongst the Korean snow. Scotty left Australia, a bloke from Warrandyte, VIC and came home a hero, becoming an Aussie legend to all those Australians that followed his journey to Korea, where he snagged Bronze in Men’s Pipe. To Volcom, Scotty has always been a hero and to show their gratitude to Scotty, whether they are Aussie, American or from anywhere in this extreme sports world - Volcom OZ and Easey Street Group put on a party to welcome back and congratulate Scotty in a way like no other. With Scotty’s family and friends on the guest list, along with Volcom family, you would have wished you were in Melbourne that night. As you enter the Easey Street venue, you were greeted with a glass of celebratory champagne from a bar that didn’t go dry the whole night. Tasty local beers were supplied by Goose Island and even tastier burgers from Easyes, accompanied by the best potato gems I have ever sampled. Our senses were being treated. At this stage, Scotty was definitely the most popular man in the house, with everyone there wanting to get a hold of that Olympic Bronze medal. I can tell you it was more than impressive, it’s the real deal with some solid weight behind it.  As the night went on and those attending got merrier and merrier, Volcom’s Shane Azar had a few surprises in store for Scotty. DJ - Sean James put the music on hold and all turned to the big screen where a mix of absolute legends across all sports congratulated Scotty on his Bronze from abroad. Just watching Scotty’s reactions to the video showed you just how special it was to him, a very touching piece indeed. To keep the emotions going, Shane presented Scotty with a one of a kind custom ring, crafted right here in Melbourne by Adam from Broken Lock. Unlike the Bronze medal, it could be worn everyday as a memento of Scotty’s achievement. A toast was had in the form of a “Garry Ablett”, a popular drink with the Volcom Snow Team (shot of coffee slammed into a beer then skulled in one hit). And then the madness began. The madness that is Barbarian... A metal band not from this century. Smoke, fire, blood sweat and some tears, a Barbarian show is like no other. If you were not Metal before the show, you are Metal now! The crowd participation was incredible, on what capped off an amazing night to celebrate an outstanding achievement by Scotty James.

SCOTTY JAMES SNOWBOARDING WITH TUNNEL VISION
Scotty James on snowboarding with a focused energy, a tunnel vision that stems from his addiction and love of the sport. Scotty James in an Australian-born snowboarder that has been hitting the slopes since his childhood. First competing on the international circuit when he was 13-years old, Scotty obtained a liking to halfpipe snowboarding and slopestyle events where over the years he has proven himself time and time again as a top contender and serious threat to the competition. Already a multi-time world champion of the sport and considered as one of the best snowboarders in the world, at 23-years old, Scotty James is just getting started. While Scotty primarily focuses on snowboard tricks that can relate to the halfpipe and slopestyle events, he is happiest when he is simply snowboarding, in any capacity. For Scotty James, being true to something is being true to your passion, and that passion is snowboarding. It's an addiction. It's his happiness. And he's damn good at it! What was the very first snowboard video you watched that got you hooked? SJ: I can't remember the first video I ever watched, but one that pops up in my head is JP Solberg's part from Transcendence in 2002 I believe. I was about eight-years old and watched that movie over and over again! What was it that made you like that video so much? SJ: I've always loved his style of riding and the bunny suit he wears through most of his part was pretty entertaining, especially for an eight-year old! How does that video still inspire you today? SJ: Transcendence and the riders in that movie still inspire me today because it was all about style and how good you could make tricks look without going upside down a thousand times. Riders like Gigi, Romain deMarchi, and Wolle Nyvelt all showed that style, above everything else, is gold. What activities are you into other than Snowboarding? SJ: I spend a lot of time surfing whenever I can. It's the only thing I can really do that relates to snowboarding. I've tried to skate, but I just end up in pain someway or another! Do those activities translate or influence your snowboarding in anyway? SJ: The fluidity and power that you see when watching surfers is definitely something that I think influences my riding. Working the board and enjoying the ride is what it's all about.
