Slightly Removed – Capturing the memories with Chris Pfanner

The “Slightly Removed” story follows skateboarders Chris Pfanner and Axel Cruysberghs as they immerse themselves into Vancouver, Canada. A busy urban city surrounded by conifer rainforests. The close proximity of both urban and natural landscapes represents a duality, a yin-yang… their combined energy provides balance to those that embrace and inhabit both of these starkly contrasting environments. Pfanner, not only a skater, but also a skilled, inquisitive photographer, documents their journey for balance as they alternate between conifer and concrete activities.

MACBA BACK TO THE 4

Volcom joined forces with @macbalife to help its vision become reality: putting back the 4th block at MACBA’s legendary Big4 spot for an event celebrating skateboarding history, and giving the opportunity to the new generation to add some tricks to the already long ABD list.

For only a couple hours, the party gathered some of the travelling pros, Europe finest ams, the eclectic Macba local scene and a horde of skateboarding enthusiasts shaking the museum and university walls with their cheers.

Just to name a few, Justin Sommer, Carlos Neira, Jorge Simoes, Adrien Bulard, Jordan Maxham and Robert Neal put on a great show, but Frenchmen Aurelien Giraud was the crowds favorite landing hammer after hammer. He won most of the cash claiming top 2 best NBD’s, the MVP award, and shut down the session after time with a perfect bs 360 kickflip.

Milion thanks to Alex Braza’s @macbalife, Ungravity, Javier Menéndez, Snipes, Transworld Skatebaording, ETN, Roberto Aleman, Alain Goikoetxea, Rufus, all the Macba locals and everyone who came enjoy the party with us.

Stone Made Product Test – Volcom

Last May 2016 a solid crew formed by Alain Goikoetxea, David Sánchez and Alain Saavedra flew to California on a pool mission. The plan was to wear test the Volcom Stone Made product attributes (Superior Stretch, Durability, Water Resistance and AntiMicrobial) so we limited the crew to one pair for the whole week. Shredding ten pools along with all of the other damage seven days on the road brings is a lot to ask so it was killer to see how the pant stood up to the test especially without a single wash. Test: Approved! Watch the video!
