The Volcom Road Rager Tour, French West Coast

It has been long awaited the chance to come back and visit Bretagne and enjoy the beautiful landscapes, the delicious crepes and the tasty cider. Unfortunately, we cannot say that we found good waves … it was mostly small and on-shore and as everyone told us “You should have been here yesterday, it was pumping !”

Bad timing ? Maybe … but the guys prefer to surf on-shore waves anyway !

We took a big camping car, asked William Aliotti, Charly Quivront and Baptiste Gaud to jump in, and drove all the way from Hossegor to Brest, our first stop of the tour with Side Shore Surfshop. We could enjoy some great surf movies at the Brest Surf Film Festival before heading south to visit Absolute Surfshop and surf in Crozon with the local kids that were ripping on their home spot !

No time to rest, the next day we had to be in Guidel to visit Action Line Surfshop, surf & skate on schedule ! The micro ramp is right in front of the shop and the kids were super keen so we decided to throw a Best trick Session ! Baptiste had a few tricks but the local groms took it home. We were very impress by their levels of skateboarding, hat down Guidel !

Next stop was Keepcool in Carnac where we had the best session of the trip at La Cote Sauvage, Quiberon. A super funny left where Charly and Baptiste had a blast on a sunny day. BTW, it was pissing rain in the South West of France !

Everyone was very excited about the next one in the Volcom Store Nantes, a student city where we heard the night life can be pretty epic. The surf team did some DIY Road Rager tshirts for the customers and we played a big darts tournament before visiting the museums and libraries of the city ... yeah maybe we only visited pubs and clubs …

On a big hangover, we drove to Ile de Ré and had a beautiful evening at Reves D’Iles Surfshop where we skated in front of the shop and gave a skate lesson to the local groms. The day after we drove to Charly’s home town, Royan, to visit his dad’s shop Maracuja. A big crowd was waiting for Charly, the first surfer of the town who succeed in becoming a pro surfer. You can see that the kids are inspired by his achievements, that was nice and we had a blast, thanks Yannick !

To finish with fireworks we had plan a big one in Biscarosse at La Vigieon the same days that the Junior Qualifying Series were running. Art expo by Roch Tortuga, live music by Cheaap, surf test by Firewire Surfboards, all these on tape for free. A big day to celebrate a great shop while the JQS was called OFF for a lay day.

This tour was great, we shared some good times with our best surfshops, discovered a beautiful coast line and experimented the camper life. We will be back next year, one day in advance, so we should get more waves

Noa Deane's "Head Noise" is a Cinematic Surf Movie from Filmmaker Mikey Mallalieu
Demystifying the noise within his own head and destroying the noise of the stereotype which surrounds him. Yes, Noa Deane is a freakish aerialist, but he also charges tubes of consequence. Yes, he is one of the most innovative surfers in the world today, but he is also steeped in a deep respect for his heritage. Yes, he has been characterized as a punk kid, but he is thoughtful and down to earth. Yes, his life might look like an easy dream ride, but he has demons to slay! This movie is a direct reflection of Noa Deane. It's a candid look at one of surfing's most exciting characters through high-action, heavy-charging, avant-garde surfing for the new age, documented unmistakably through the lens of filmmaker Mikey Mallalieu. Head Noise Soundtrack: Dinosaur Jr. - "Raisans" Al Lover - "Partial Paradigm" The LINE - "System Deceptive" The LINE - "Happy Hangover" Wash - "Pipe Bomb" Blistar - "123_1"   Download The LINE's songs from Head Noise, along with their entire album:   NOA DEANE COLLECTION Check out the all-new head-to-toe Noa Deane collection, Noise Noise Noise, available now!

WÖRGL DIY OPENING PRESENTED BY VOLCOM
In a small town called Wörgl, located in the tyrol alps between the riptide of the Inn and landscapes that spreads subtle vibes as soon as you cross the border, you will find a handcrafted skatepark being one of the best in its field. A DIY project that got triggered by Roman “Asti” Astleitner & Marco owner of the local skate shop Pilotto and which is now – after 13 years of construction – one of the most stunning, fun and beastly skateparks you will find in all over Europe. Not least because of that, Skateboarders from all over Europe visit Wörgl year after year for a mandatory stop while crossing the Alps. So after the last part of the skatepark was being finished this year, we decided that it was finally time to unleash the concrete beast with an opening party that worships the hard work. The mixture was as easy as it could get – 2000€ cash for tricks, custom made Volcom X Wörgl X Independent truck trophies, a pigling BBQ, live music and cold austrian refreshments.

VOLCOM RAPID JAM MUNICH
What an insane weekend we all just experienced at the Volcom Rapid Jam going down on the infamous Eisbach wave in Munich! Starting at the local surf shop Santo Loco (Eisenmannstraße 4, 80331 München) we invited the munich locals for a get together with the Volcom Surf Team including Leon Glatzer, Gony Zubizarreta, Willi Aliotti and Charly Quivront. The beers were flowing and the boys even printed some limited Volcom X Santo Loco shirts for the mob. As the motivation increased and the sun set down, we took the crowd for a walk towards the Eisbach to heat everything up for the Rapid Jam. From flames & inflatable turtles on the wave, 1000 bucks for tricks, to loads of shotgun beers and the best guys to ever surf the static wave made the perfect combo for the rad atmosphere we enjoyed. It was a huge pleasure to see such a strong scene, getting rad and pushing the energy to the next level. Special thanks to Quirin Rohleder who made all of this happen and of course to all the other sponsors and helpers such as Globe, Totally Rad!, Goldene Bar, Wolfrik „den Flammenwerfer“ Kirkflow Fischer, Toby Haseloff und natürlich die FUS Crew. Don‘t worry, it‘s only Rapid Surfing! #TrueToThis Photos by: Benson Photography, Luke Wolfgarten, Timo Kavermann, Grande Jenzonelli Video Edit: David Herbst Volcom surf gang Beers and good times at the santo loco shop William aliotti presenting his handprinted shirt to the boys Eli Christ Leon&Gony - photo Luke_Wolfgarten Germanys most crowded river The Anti Bad Vibe Shield was mandatory Leon,Gony, Lani

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.
