Ryan Burch puts the pedal to the metal on the walls of Bangko-Bangko and pulls into some heavy ones at Grajagan Bay after sharing a few thoughts on self-expression, how surfing and the asymmetrical boards he shapes fit into that, and what it is about being on a wave that excites him.

While mixing and matching colors and patterns is starting to wear out a bit, no one's been talking about mixing sexy, style and function. We'll that's what we've done in our new swim line and Maud put's it to the test as she surfs her way through the French Caribbean.
In the first episode of Follow The Maud we see her in the Call Me Wild group where bright pink meets leopard and strapless one pieces and bandeau tops turn out to be surprisingly good surf partners.

A Feature Film Celebrating America's First Boarding Company.
When Volcom was founded in 1991, it was the first company to combine
skateboarding, surfing and snowboarding under one brand from its
inception. This way of life influenced the anti-establishment style and
attitude that defined a generation. The cultural phenomenon was best
captured when Volcom released "Alive We Ride" in 1993: a film documenting
the raw excitement and spontaneous creativity inherent to the lifestyle.
Twenty-one years later, with the release of "True To This", Volcom again
captures the energy and artistry of board-riding in its purest forms.
Shot all around the world and showcasing iconic athletes, "True To This"
is a tribute to the movement that inspired a generation and the people
and places that embody that spirit today.
There is just one way of premiering a big film like "True To This" in a big city like Barcelona: Go Big.
For accomplishing this mission the perfect place is the Apolo venue, which were packed last March 18th. Nobody wanted to miss the opportunity of watching the video exclusively in Spain, so 30 minutes before "doors open" time a huge queue could be seen rounding the block.
At the entrance, everyone wanted to get a photo on the original miniramp-photocall built by our friend Txomin Pardiñas. Around a thousand people enjoyed the best Surf, Skate and Snowboard in the world featured on the film while having some drinks with friends. Some riders like Javier Sarmiento, Alain Goikoetxea and Rune Glifberg showed up apart from many characters from the Barcelona scene.
"The Mentals" rocked the place after the movie and a happy winner took home the YAE leather jacket. During the Mentals, the quintessential Veeco movie Alive we Ride was played in the background.
We all end up partying at the classics "Crappy Tuesdays" from Apolo. Thanks to everyone who showed up, had fun and shared good times with all of us. Stay TTT.
