With the build of Volcom 1986 Toyota 4Runner complete they set out to skate obscure spots off the beaten path in California’s high desert which is true to the terrain that shaped who CJ is today. Conceived in support of the drop of CJ’s Volcom “Liberation Cont’d” clothing collection, the build and ensuing film trip truly captured spirit of liberation.

In celebration of Jackson Pilz first curated Skateboard Collection for Volcom, we visit his home and dug deeper into why he chose this particular collection.
Living in a beautiful and quiet part of Australia’s Sunshine Coast with his fiancé Alana and daughter Olive, where they’ve created a lifestyle one could easily envy.
Jackson tells us that he created this collection to suit whatever a day Skating… or his daughter might throw at him.

Volcom has been supporting Asian skateboarders for quite some time now. Some of them have recently made a name in the skateboarding community through bigger media contests. Sanggoe, for example, took home silver at the 2018 Asian Games, as well as Ju-Won who made a huge comeback in the same contest, which earned him the bronze medal. Taihou is another rising star, qualifying for major international contests, as well as receiving street creds for his best trick showdown at the 2018 Tampa Am. Featuring Taihou Tokura, Tatsuma Masuda, Ju-Won Eun, Sanggoe Tanjung, Mario Palandeng, Pan Jia Jie and Bank Nattapo.
Invited skaters had to battle during 9 days for the VolcomTriple Quest in Paris in collaboration with Free Skate magazine, from September 11-19, 2019 to get a trick on each on the three chosen spots.
Heated sessions with skate buddies, sweat, beers and good times were had by all, as there was no one-minute-run stress or jam session hassle from “regular” skate comps.
Tons of tricks, including a couple NBDs, went down at the three spots: Creteil Ledges – The Volcom Stone place de la République – a two trick line at Le Dôme including the double set.
In the end only four winners claimed their bite at the 1000€ prize money under beer showers during the award party last Friday night…
Happy birthday Mechelen DIY ! May this day always be a special one to remember.
To celebrate the 10 years of a skatepark built by so many passionate people, a heavy crew gathered to clean every dusty coping corner on that day with their trucks.
