A 100% In The Moment With Austin Amelio

A fixture on the Austin, TX skate scene for years, and longtime friend of Volcom, Austin Amelio is making a name for himself in the acting world, playing Dwight on The Walking Dead and starring in a host of independent films, including this year’s Everybody Wants Some, Richard Linklater’s spiritual sequel to Dazed and Confused.

Having recently relocated to Atlanta, GA from Austin, TX we caught up with Austin at his home with his girlfriend and son as he painted us a picture and shared how he got into acting and the parallels he draws between acting and skateboarding. Filmed and edited by, Calvin Millar, the two go back a ways in the Austin, TX skate scene, with Millar including Austin’s part in his 2011 video, The Devil’s Toy. Watch it below.

Before making the move to Atlanta, Volcom’s creative director, Mike Aho, shot Austin for the Volcom Holiday ’16 lookbook that can be seen below.
