Finals Day Highlights - 2017 Volcom Pipe Pro

Congratulations to Soli Bailey,

2017 Volcom Pipe Pro Champion!

Finals Day at the Volcom Pipe Pro was unpredictable! We kicked off the morning early with the two remaining heats of Round 3, then we immediately got into Round 4 competition. Waves started off slow as the sun rose over Sunset Elementary, but it wasn’t long before sets started rolling in and guys started dropping some big scores. The first 9-point ride went to Brazil’s Adriano De Souza on a heavy Backdoor wave in his first heat of the competition to secure himself into Round 4. Along with Adriano, Ian Crane, Benji Brand, and Luke Shepardson advanced to the next round.

Round 4 saw similar off-beat scores from the inconsistent, yet improving sets, but boys made it happen. Brian Toth kicked off Heat 2 with a solid 6-point ride, while in the last minute of the heat, Kiron Jabour dropped to third place after Soli Bailey secured solid 6.13 score. Heat 3 we saw Mitch Coleborn bag a solid Pipe wave earning himself a 6.17 to push himself into the lead, and right behind him, Koa Smith took off on a similar Pipe wave, although not as deep as Coleborn, and earned himself a 5-point ride. John John Florence once again delivered, dropping a 7.5 score right off the bat, then following it up with a 5.17 and 6.83 to hold the heat. Also getting through Heat 4 was Hawaii’s Hank Gaskell. Heat 5 saw Brazil’s David do Carmo pull off a rocky bottom turn on a Pipe wave and miraculously got spit out with his hands in his air to earn a well-deserved 6.83, while crowd-favorite Mason Ho surprisingly went down due to lack of waves in the heat. The next heat saw more upsets with Makuakai Rothman being knocked out, as well as Yago Dora, who has been in-form the whole event. But it was Bruce Irons, Aritz Aranburu, Lucas Silveira, Luke Shepardson, Adriano De Souza, and Makai McNamara who all coupled good enough scores to move into the Quarterfinals.

During the Quarterfinals, the side wind had slightly picked up and turned things a bit messier in the lineup, but there were still some gems to be had. Soli Bailey nabbed a 6.17 on a clean Backdoor right, to add to his previous 4.0, and an on-fire Leandro Usuna from Argentina grabbed a couple mid-range scores, both enough to advance them into the Semifinals. Heat 2 saw slower wave conditions and increased wind as John John Florence, Griffin Colapinto, Mitch Coleborn, and Brian Toth tried battling through the conditions in any way possible. While they were hoping for barrels, it turned out to be turns that prevailed as John John and Griffin each found a Backdoor wave which delivered their advancement. Quarterfinal Heat 3 went nearly 15 minutes before anyone had caught a decent wave, and it was Bruce Irons who delivered the first punch on a smaller Backdoor barrel to receive a well-earned 6.33 score. Along with Bruce, it was David do Carmo to roll into the already-stacked Semifinal heats. Heat 4 was another one for turns, with a sneaky tube seen by Artiz Aranburu. While it was another low-scoring heat with the winds affecting the conditions, Aranburu dropped some heavy turns and advanced with a 11.34 and Adriano De Souza advanced with a 7.50. And there it was, the Semifinals were set!

Semifinal 1 saw Australia's Soli Bailey, Argentina's Leandro Usuna, Hawaii's John John Florence, and USA's Griffin Colapinto. John John drew first blood with a couple playful hooks on a Backdoor right, but it was Soli Bailey to find a barrel at Pipe to get the early lead with a 5.0. Things went relatively quiet, and towards the end of the heat, John John was sitting in fourth position and grabbed a one-turn Backdoor right, but it wasn't enough. Soli Bailey dropped a huge 8.17 score near the five-minute mark, and in the dying seconds of the heat, Griffin Colapinto found a clean Backdoor barrel, barely sneaking out the doggy dog, to earn a 7.37, securing his spot in the finals. Semifinal 2 competitors picked up the heat and competition went fierce. An in-rhythm Bruce Irons wowed the fans with a 6.77 barrel, and David do Carmo dropped two solid turns on a Backdoor set wave to receive a 5.83. While Aritz Aranburu and David do Carmo were able to get some solid scores, it was Adriano De Souza who advanced to the Finals, along with Bruce Irons who managed to drop a near-perfect 8.93 score.

THE FINALS

1 2017 volcom pipe pro finals heat draw pipeline

With the resurgence of Bruce, the competitive spirit of Adriano, the rookie-hunger of Griffin, and the underdog-hopes of Soli, the final was truly exciting to watch. It started off with a strong paddle battle between Bruce and Adriano for priority, then saw Soli snag a mid-range 5.67 Backdoor tube. With the wind magically switching to slight offshore during the final, it had seemed luck was on their side, but the boys had to wait as a lack of waves keep them searching for a score. A clean-up set caught Soli inside and breaking his leash off causing him to retrieve a backup board from the beach. With nine minutes left, Bruce and Griffin were put in a combo situation when Soli dropped the highest single-wave score of the heat of a 7.33. For the remainder of the final, the waves didn't produce any additional high-scoring potential, which left Soli eagerly counting down the clock to the final second, which he did. Congratulations to all the finalists, and Soli Bailey for being crowned the 2017 Volcom Pipe Pro Champion!

Burger Invasion in Spain
We had a blast this weekend at the Burger Invasion festival with back to back concerts in Barcelona and Madrid! Burger Records, the Californian music label set up an eclectic line up that pumped the audience crescendo. The shows started with the delicacy of Younghusband, following with Cotillon, then some psychedelic sounds from The Molochs. At the time Wand took over the stage with their trippy progressive sounds, spirits were already high, but when The Garden started their show, it completely exploded (go check their stage act when you’ve got the chance). The show ended with The Dwarves, turning the front rows into a mosh pit, with some “punk rock (that) is good for you” . To top that up, the venues were legendary (Apolo in Barcelona and Joy Eslava in Madrid), and there was plenty of Volcom surprises for everyone including a year of Volcom Jeans supply to two lucky winners. No needs to say, good times were had by all. Don’t miss next one when those shows hit your town!

BEHIND THE SCENES: ATTUNGA - A VEECO FILMS PRODUCTION
THIS IS THE FORGOTTEN STORY OF ATTUNGA Attunga - The Aboriginals used the term to define "a high place." And that was the exact place our group was searching for. Or was it a feeling? To navigate the globe, to harness the spirit of a single moment in time created by a collective of individuals, to find a higher place for an elevated state of being – Attunga. Without hesitation, we jumped into action and began our journey. A daily diary was written. Each day’s adventure noted, madness scribed. The crew documents in an attempt to record what would be known to Attunga as the most influential group to ever occupy its presence. Then, the diary was lost. Mishandled. Hours of line-by-line transcribing of pure gold vanished as if nothing ever happened. Left in the fresh Australian Alps. A page ripped out of a larger story only to be known to a select few. It was said to contain their unapologetic quest for a higher place. This was the chapter of Attunga.   Not since Attunga's early days had a group of 15 men troubled the grounds with musical instruments and a thirst of 100% Victorian hops and malt which goes by the name of Furphy. This beer, the Volcom Snow Family longed-for. It was their weakness, but it didn’t hold them back. Not at all. It only fueled their true passion for living. Snowboarding. Music. Skating. There were no downtimes. Those outwardly disturbed neighbors, rattled from their foreign beds and thundered by group chants with overwrought behavior, only marveled the next day as the team soared high above their heads. Finding side-hits where previously thought impossible, approaching jumps at unprecedented speeds, riding down the mountain together all in a consistent, but unique way. They were on the search for a higher place. A place which previously occupied a state of mind unbeknownst to their fellow man. This place was the pinnacle of their search. And it was mesmerizing. This was the long-forgotten story of Attunga, only briefly told. A temporary remembrance of what once was. An anecdote. It seems archaic to draw a timeline from memory and not tangible proof. But, then again, that’s the story of Attunga. Did it really happen? We must digress. Continue on. The story is out there. In a higher place that's joined with its unparalleled state of mind. Lost in a diary that doesn’t want to be found. Buried beneath, somewhere deep in Falls Creek. Photos by Vernon Deck + E-Stone:

The Volcom Cham Shack Womens Invasion !
Volcom womens took over the Volcom Cham Shack beginning of February, in Chamonix, France. The ladies that joined us were: Camille, Fanny,  Lili,  Kicki,  Alba,  Silvia,  Jess,  and  @maudlecar Some of the coolest girls from Paris, Berlin, Barcelona and London together with our brand ambassador Maud Le car, flew to the Volcom Chamonix House in Chamonix to be part of a unique experience. Jess Gavigan, aka Juice  describes her journey ! ‘A couple of weeks ago I headed out to  Chamonix for a snow adventure with Volcom. I left Bali to do the trip and then return to Asia straight after because the trip sounded so amazing and I really wanted to work with Volcom! The long journey was made up for it by the first night accommodation. COZY SETTINGS LEVEL 100. The hotel was amazing, and I had the most amazing room with a view, and was greeted with a bed full of amazing gifts from Volcom, clarins and electric. GASSEDDDD. That was a great start to the whole trip, but I won't  go into it loads cos there's too many sick parts... We went to the Volcom store to pick out some stuff, which was totally unexpected - if the gifts on the bed weren't enough we got free reign inside the store (like kids in a candy shop). We got to try snow shoeing, which was a new experience for me! And I loved it. It was sick doing a mini trek up the mountain, perfect weather conditions and the icing on the cake was the house we went to for dinner. It was unreal. Everything hand made, hand cooked. The food was WOWOW, and we each got given a quartz crystal which was all found on the mountains by the husband. It was such a special night and I've been keeping the crystal in my pocket everyday (travelling through Asia) The bit I was most excited about was snowboarding in our new gear. I was stoked to ride with lucie, vernon, olivier, Maude Alba and Silvia. We got to go and ride around and take some sick shots. IT WAS SO MUCH FUN. I loved everyone we all got on so well. And then we did a couple all girl runs GIRL POWER haha The clarins spa was next level. Getting pampered was heavenly and the outdoor swimming pool/jacuzzi was a really nice end to the day. The whole trip was sick. The group got on so well and everyone was like a big family at the end. I was sad to leave. It was an amazing and magical few days in the mountains. My only regret is that it didn't last longer!! I met so many cool people and its an experience I won't forget, and even better I've got sick volcom snow and lifestyle apparel for lifeeeee. ‘ THE WHOLE TRIP WAS JUST WOW. (Haha inside group joke) Big love to emilie, Lucie and the volcom gang. Credit photos : Vernon Deck video : Olivier Gittler Special thanks to Electric, Clarins,Vernon deck and Olivier Gittler

Attunga world premier, P1 Munich, Sunday the 28th of January
Last Sunday on the first night of ISPO, Attunga was shown to the general public for the first time. We teamed up with longtime friends, media partner, and snowboard magazine extraordinary - Pleasure, because when it comes to throwing parties in Munich, nobody does it better. By the times doors opened at the P1 club, the line to get in was over a hundred meters long. Come 11 o’clock, Terje Haakonsen introduced the movie to the overenthusiastic spastic snowboard crowd. At 12:30, the boy wonder, aka the not so petit prince with his magic fingers and slightly less magic amplifier came on stage and introduced his band LEOPARD Ale. Within seconds, yours truly was violently pushed into the back corners of the venue by a lynch mob of, hmmm… let’s just call them female fans (we do live in #metoo times after all). It was close to Beatles mania all over again. After LEOPARD Ale’s historical gig, Nasty Mondays took over, and it was around this time our beloved Seth Huot (Attunga movie director) was kicked out for letting off too much steam. Not an easy task to accomplish, kudos Seth. The rest is as they say, staying on tour. We’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. Thank you to everyone that came out, Chris Heubl and Pleasure Magazine, Martin Herrmann for photos, and Jeff and Seth for coming all the way from the US.
