La Kantera Invitational 2018 Recap

Winners got decided last Saturday 23 of June under a perfect summer day at La Kantera Invitational 2018!

The legendary pool of Algorta got shredded into pieces by an international field of skateboarders, and besides a few injuries and a destroyed pool ladder, the action didn’t stop.

Congratulations to Jordyn Barratt (USA) who took top honors in Women division, Nicky Guerrero (Denmark) for winning the Masters division and to Vincent Matheron (France) for his first place in the Pro/Am division.

On top of all the action we also celebrated Alain Goikoetxea’s 20 years with Volcom in his hometown, surprising him with a giant Volcom Stone cake and an Eagletone guitar customized by his sister and artist Naiara.

The warm up day (Friday) ended with a giant Barbecue at the beach on the evening, and with the local psychedelic band Purple Vellocet playing at Sunset. With the beers flowing, the party peaked with Pizza Knife taking over the stage with a killer punk show.

It was all about good vibes on the contest day (Saturday), the public coming in numbers as the day advanced to watch the action in the grandstand around the pool or in the grass fields surrounding playa Arrigunaga.

The action continued after the prize ceremony with Woody Woodcutters and FAVX playing a live free show under a stunning sunset. Then it was time to crack more cold ones down the beach for the annual Sanjuanada celebrating the longest day of the year with fires everywhere.

Thanks to Euskaltel, the city of Getxo, Confusion magazine, Thanks Skateboarding, @guretxoskatepark, Eagletone guitars, Alain Goikoetxea, Javier Mendizabal  and Etienne Pinon for judging, Naiara Goikoetxea for this year artwork drawing and the custom Eagletone Guitars trophies, Don Grego and Edu for MCing, DJ Judas for the good tunes, Daniel Pelow and his webcast crew, Marc Churchill and Dani Lozano for hosting the webcast, Vincent Coupeau and Borja from the skate club for the photos, Jeremy and Alex for the video and everyone else who made this event a success!

WATCH 'CABOOSTA GONDOLA' STARRING ARTHUR LONGO, MIKE RAVELSON & OLIVIER GITTLER
CABOOSTA GONDOLA… A short, documented, derailed track through the Alps following Volcom family Arthur Longo, Mike Ravelson and Olivier Gittler as they slide through the cities and mountain ranges of Switzerland and Austria, letting the railroad dictate the roadmap. Filmed on and offboard Zurich, Innsbruck, St. Anton am Arlberg, Ischgl, Kaunertel & Kitzsteinhorn. Documented, chopped up and served by Seth Huot. Would you travel across the Atlantic to jump on the train with your buds and enjoy this view? Rhetorical… Ok, ok, we get it! Arthur likes to be high! Arthur and Rav with the 6-wheel stroll prior to boarding the train It takes 2 people to capture 1 shot. Rav with a European plant as documented by the one and only, Seth Huot. It wasn’t all snowboarding on this trip. As you can see, Arthur decided to pass on flying the drone and took to the sky himself. Mike Ravelson throwing down some tricks in the bowl

RUMBLE FISH
There is snow on the hills of Portugal. The drive to Portugal is long and usually uneventful. But the destination is always worth it. Returning to places you’ve been before can be a hard act to follow. However with the teamsheet assembled we had little doubt we’d be on for a good one. We would rent a house that anywhere outside of Portugal would be out of our budgets and we would live there for the best part of a month as a happy, yet highly dysfunctional family. We would go between wedges in the Algarve, the scary side of surfing in Nazare, 6am finishes in Lisbon and the glorious points of Ericeria. We would call it Rumblefish. Filmed and edited by : Guillem Cruells Starring Alex Bothelo, Gony Zubizaretta, William Aliotti, Joao Moreira, Charly Quivront, Maud Lecar, Bapiste Gaud and Harry Timson.

Abandoned Playground launch at Bud Skateshop
After a first event in Paris, Volcom celebrated again its new “Abandoned Playground” collection in Marseille last Thursday. Bud Skateshop was the perfect spot for it, located in the North area of the city, right in the middle of a center called “La Friche” that includes a fun concrete skatepark and various activities for multicultural blend of the area. On top of it, the Marseille bowl contest was on the same weekend so it was a no brainer to go on a mission. Bud skateshop miniramp got fixed for the occasion and some prizes got given away to the good tricks, while the DJ played some good tunes and drinks served. Most locals showed up together with some visiting skateboarders and the spirits were high. Thanks a ton to everyone who came, to Laurent “Momo” Molinier for running the shop and keeping the kids amped, DJ Raf for the sound and  Brian Bunting for the photos Get the “Abandoned Playground” Volcom collection at Bud Skateshop Fares is a young local from “La Friche” who started skateboarding a couple month back, right when he arrived in France from Algeria, he skates everyday since Local Julien Benoliel now works at a Tattoo shop but still shreds hard on a skateboard  The miniramp got inaugurated and annihilated by Vincent Matheron, Sam and the local kids DJ Raf Photo by Nicolas Jacquemin The day after the Volcom event, we went to the bowl check out the action, refresh the troups and support the heavy field of Volcom team riders:  Vincent Matheron, Pedro Barros, Luis Francisco, Vi Kakinho, Marcel Cama, Tom Bellot and Greg Ruhoff Luis on flight mode on the hip Vincent got his Jocker face on for the finals Pedro Barros with a Bs nosepick on the biggest extension Congrats to Pedro Barros for destroying the bowl and taking first place, Chris Russel 2nd and Luis Francisco 3rd

“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.

Abandoned Playground launch with DayOff Skateshop
On Monday 20th of August, Volcom officially launched the Abandoned Playground collection at DayOff Skateshop in Paris. 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.
