On top of it, the Marseille bowl contest was on the same weekend so it was a no brainer to go on a mission.

    “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.

Located right next to the infamous Place de la République, we set up a pop up store inside the shop for a week and celebrated the collection with a party the next day. Skate team riders Jorge Simoes and Ben Raemers came to shred the city for the occasion with young local Tom Belot, and some best tricks were organized on the plaza using abandoned objects on the Tuesday afternoon. After a good time skateboarding everybody moved to the shop to celebrate with free drinks, Volcom prizes and Joel Aubrée putting on a great tunes selection. Everyone had a blast and we want to thanks everyone who showed up ! Special thanks to Tonton Reddah and Snoop for making all this possible. Photos below by Thibault Lenours.

    Episode 2: "Arizona, Utah, And..." Northern AZ to Utah On Motorcycles With A Stop At The Grand Canyon | Speak Two The Wind

    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.

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.

COSMIC CONCRETE CARVE
We took the chance to support the DIY ethos by joining the approach of local skateboard enthusiasts in Chemnitz Germany to finish the work on the microbowl at AJZ Chemnitz. AJZ is one of the most recognized concert locations within the east of Germany. The spirit sorounding this place reaches beyond music and culture. The AJZ Chemnitz sees itself as an open space and a retreat, in which alternative forms of social and cultural life can be debated, tested and realized by an anti-fascist, anti-racist and antisexist claim. The Ramps in it’s garden tell the story of many years of skateboard, rock, rap and graffiti culture. We helped the project by providing clothing for a limited line of gear which proceeds went 100% into the project. Supporting the scene straight on the root, helping to create something that lasts and can be used beyond events. Of course we celebrated the opening of the bowl together with the scene, open mi need visitors and international guests from the United by Skate Camp, listing to the dark tunes of the one and only Church of Mental Enlightment. Thank you to the local scene for your enthusiasm, our local retailers Titus Chemnitz and Pauls Boutique for the support, Peter Rossner for the design, AJZ Chemnitz for having a space that allows dreams to become concrete reality.

Not least because of that, Skateboarders from all over Europe visit Wörgl year after year for a mandatory stop while crossing the Alps.

Skate Invadors - GQ x Volcom
Last June, Volcom introduced a new skate sculpture in Paris, France, at Place de la Republique. The project was in collaboration with the city of Paris, Sterling Project, some of the most iconic Parisian skateboarders, and Volcom. Going further than building a functional skatepark, Sterling Project developed an aesthetic sculpture which respects the local architecture of the plaza and helps to contribute to increasing the social experience of the skateboarders and the non-skateboarders who live in the surrounding areas. The result is an impressive 40-foot-long piece of granite, concrete, and metal in the shape of a Volcom Stone to serve as a skate spot for the local skateboarding community. GQ Magazine France documented this process and gave us a moving visual eye to the storytelling. This video is the behind the scenes look at the Place de la Republique project this past June.
