Scoring in Coxos, Portugal, Euro Thrash continues...

Words and photos by Volcom staff photographer, Tom Carey. Check out additional Euro Thrash coverage from our friends Wasted Talent and Surfline who joined us on the trip.

The second day of the trip was one of the best days of surf we've ever seen. We scored firing Coxos, The Cave and Crazy Left. The wind cooperated, the swell pumped and we took advantage of what Portugal was delivering. Coxos was going loony as our cavalry pulled up to the carpark. Charly Quivront, Alex Botelho and Willy Alioti wasted no time trading off eight foot tubes out the back while Noa Deane jumped in shortly after. Everyone seemed to get spit out of a barrel. It was crazy. But in the distance, we could see The Cave trying to do its thing. The tide just needed to drop. Gony Zubizaretta and myself were getting antsy to give it a whirl, so we waited. And we're glad we did.

Gony put on an absolute amazing display of surfing at The Cave when it started to turn on. Gony is somewhat of a new residenta of Ericeira, but he surfed the wave like he grew up there. For anyone that doesn't know the place, it's as heavy as it gets. Boils pop up out of nowhere, rocks are visible just feet from the lip and a nasty shelf sits just feet away from a wipeout. Tiago Pires once broke his back out there. It's usually empty as no one wants a piece of it. But Gony lit the place up. He got three of the best waves we've ever seen out there. His first wave was a standup barrel wide enough for him to comfortably stretch his arms out in. Noa was also frothing to surf The Cave more than anyone and it showed as he got a few insane slabs to himself along with Gony.

Ryan Burch was also amongst the crew and surfed six-to-eight-foot crazy left by himself for a few hours, carving the wave to hell on his handshaped asymmetrical masterpiece. It's seriously a sight to see him on those boards and it's safe to say he's carved out a nice little niche for himself.

Even after a terribly long day of surfing, we still managed to find the strength to put a few beers back. The days are quite long in Europe. We didn’t even eat dinner until 10:30pm that night. The Americans were getting hangry and all the Euros were having a good laugh at it.

The following day was back to the beach break. And again, we were greeted with playful three-foot surf rolling off this amazing sand bar. It was icing on the cake after the extravaganza we had the day before. We could die happy. The forecast looked pretty grim after that run of swell, so we decided to pack up our gear and hightail it 10 hours to Hossegor. We went like 90mph and made it in seven hours. Not an easy task with three cars. We strolled into the Volcom France House around 10pm and called it a day.

Charly was the only guy not to wear boots out there at Coxos. The rocks are psycho out there especially at high tide. People get tweaked coming in over the reef.

Noa was absolutely freaking out at the idea of us getting to surf The Cave. The wind cooperated for an hour or so and we lucked into some absolute gems.

Willy gave it a go on his backhand. Probably the worst wave ever to surf backside. He ate shit on a few but came out unscathed.

The biggest, meanest set came in right when we were paddling out. It was insane. If we had just gotten out there an hour earlier. Damn!!

Traveling with 12-15 people can be tough at times but somehow we pulled it off with laser like precision. The vibes were amazing on that trip.

Volcom Skate Team’s Favorite Pieces from the Holiday 2017 Collection
Abandoned pools, rent-a-cops, real cops and more fences than we ever cared to deal with! For the release of our Holiday 2017 Collection, we grabbed a few of our skate dudes and asked them to pick out their favorite pieces. CJ Collins, Dane Burman, Milton Martinez, and Alec Majerus each handpicked their go-tos and we headed off to some skate spots to film them in the gear. Dive in below to watch these mini edits and explore the Holiday '17 Collection. CJ COLLINS We met up with CJ and legendary Steve "Salba" Alba to check out a couple of Salba's secret backyard pools scattered throughout the inland empire. The first pool was small and steep, but CJ is so small that he had no problem putting down some difficult tricks. In the last pool we visited, there was a massive love seat that seemed daunting to say the least. Our anticipation would have been much higher, but with someone like CJ who can spring his way over almost anything, he had no trouble boosting a backside ollie over it. Salba joined in on the action and was seriously impressed with what he saw go down throughout the day. After the two exhausted themselves trying to master the deep end, the crew packed up and had a rewarding early dinner at none other than Chilis. Frickin Modern Chino CJ Collins, grom trash duty DANE BURMAN We picked up Dane at Black Box Distribution in San Diego (where he's currently living on the couch), and kicked around spots to check out. We were trying to film a trick a few weeks with him before the second Wanderlodge trip, and he got hurt, so this session was his first time back. The first spot we found was a gap to rail, but we got kicked out so we decided to come back later when the place was closed. We drove around for awhile and checked out more spots, but they were either too big or there was another obstacle in our way. Eventually, we made it to a school where there were a few solid handrails, but fences plagued the areas so we moved on. He hopped a fence and found these cool trees that he could ollie through, but thought the gap was too long. Luckily, there was a grate in front of one that he could prop up with a skateboard and launch off of. He attempted the tree ollie a few times, but came up short. He was motivated to conquer the trick, so he kept trying, again and again, and even with the tight squeeze between the branches, he ended up stomping the trick with ease just before we were to head off to another spot. Frickin Regular Chino Pants Dane Burman strategizing his tree ollie MILTON MARTINEZ Milton wanted to skate the first spot we found because he said he wanted to "go fast and fly." Alex, part of the Volcom crew, brought his Harley to tow him in to a huge gap jump, but we ended up having the cops called on us and Milton couldn't get the trick down before we got told to leave. Although, he did get a kickflip melon pretty quick while the cops were in route. That spot was fun, but illegal, so we went to another spot Milton could get towed in to by the Harley. The route to tow in at this new spot was narrow and not really enough room to completely stop, so he had to ride through the grass to make it work. Milton ollied off the bump all the way to the street in under an hour, and when we were filming all the b-roll stuff, Alex caught a patch of soft grass and crashed his motorcycle. Luckily, he wasn't hurt and his bike wasn't too busted, so we ended up fitting it in the back of the van and headed out. Kneon Nights T-shirt Milton Martinez taking a breather ALEC MAJERUS We rolled up on a spot w/ Alec, saw some huge stairs, and knew someone had to do it, and that someone was Alec. The photographer, Swainston, wasn't too familiar with Alec, so he wasn't expecting anything gnarly, but that's exactly what he got. When he realized Alec was going for an ally-oop backside flip over the stair rail, he knew he had to buckle down and be ready to nail the shot. Alec took some beatings, but kept a determined and motivated vibe alive. He nailed it, and so did Swanston. Frickin Modern Chino Pants Alec eyeing up a rail

LONGO, HAAKONSEN AND FRIENDS IN OLIVIER GITTLER’S INTROSPECTION
OLIVIER IS A MAN OF MANY TALENTS. AT RIDING HIS SNOWBOARD, FILMING, EDITING, MAKING MUSIC, OR CELEBRATING LIFE, HE CONSTANTLY EXCELS. Oh, Oli's also the reigning Quarter Pipe World Champion, although he'll never admit to it. It’s no secret that a 30-second Instagram clip is usually a condensed version of a week-long trip around the world to document a specific goal. Whether it's a trick for a video part, a photo for the mags, field testing product, or any other reason to chase a winter storm. But, what about all the shenanigans in between? From airplanes to rental cars, hotel rooms to summits, and everything in between, sometimes the moments that define these trips are caught in-between takes. Volcom ambassador Olivier Gittler, with his strong appreciation for behind-the-scenes footage, put together this unique look at a season untold with Arthur Longo, Terje Haakonsen and friends.  "IT’S WHAT WE LOVE TO DO. ALL THE THINGS THAT HAPPEN WHEN WE TRAVEL FOR SNOWBOARDING. THE SPONTANEOUS PART OF TRAVELING AROUND THAT NO ONE ELSE SEES." – OLIVIER GITTLER Oli double exposure photo by Adailton Oli Mike and Jeff shot by Vernon Deck Oli Mike and Jeff shot by Vernon Deck music recording setup iphone Oli and Arthur iphone Oli close up shot by Arthur Oli forest iphone Oli Mt Blanc iphone Oli photo by Adailton Oli setup iphone Oli shot by Longo - Crater Lake Super 8 Paulina Lake iphone
