Going on a tour during January in France is not a good idea but it's for
that reason that we and the Soma-boys thought it would be a good challenge
and an opportunity to get an original article for the magazine.
Well the worst you can imagine, happened, France and Belgium where covered
with snow and we lost 4 days of the trip waiting for the weather to get
better, but it just didn't happen.
Last option was to drive to the Mediterranean side of France where it's
always nice weather and where Volcom family-rider Victor Pellegrin
(injured) knows all the spots.
Like you'll see in this little edit, we only skated for about 2 days and a
half and what happened for the rest of the trip, I would say, go get the
latest Soma issue with Axel Cruysberghs on the cover and discover the rest
of our little adventure from the south to the north of France with Nassim
Guammaz, Axel Cruysberghs, Victor Pellegrin and tour-guest "Petit Ju"

Volcom Stone-Age. Inspired and Designed for Skateboarding.
Once, upon a time there was a place well known as a shelter to Stuttgart’s Skateboard riding community when winters were dark, cold and wet. This place surely witnessed uncountable, remarkable and unique sessions amongst friends, and was well known as a place with a very special vibe and character. Though, as time was leaking away the ramp could not withstand the moist air and its physical condition began to decrease steadily. Soon it became impossible to skate and people began to forget about it.
On Saturday, 23.03.2013; Volcom and Telum put on their mining gear and made their way into the basements of the Reinsburgstraße 52 determined to revitalise; a. the ramp, b. the location, and c. the vibe. Did it work out? Sure, with musical support from the band Gossenhauer, they carried double armloads of Landjäger Sausages, Wulle Bier & Michelberger Schnaps down the alley to the basement. Add a fair number of 130 friends and you’ll have a blast. However, there is no need to go into further detail, but why don’t you experience it for yourself?

Trying to get out on the streets in February in England can be a hard task. some days, it just won't happen and to get a skate you need to go undercover.
Harry Lintell spent a couple of hours at Bay Sixty6 working on some tricks new and old.
