Family Stone

Saturday night was the premiere of Volcom's True To This video showcasing the finest achievement among all of their top 'boarders.

Caught up with Louie and Ben in front of the photo wall, checking clips with our very own Ewan Bowman.

The tables get turned on World's Best Dad. Totally natural.

Yep, nailed it.

As stated, this was a video featuring skateboarding, surfing and snowboarding, so there were many new friends to be made at this premier.

But some familiar faces never hurt - the Provosts party on.

Sure, they might look a bit stiff, but that's what being a dad does to you.

Mad heads in the VIP area.

Rowley hooks me up on this Kane/Patterson poach.

Rousing speech by founder Wooly.

Inspirational stuff.

Despite the rain, crowds converging.

Who wore it better?

WBD gets to work. As Volcom's oldest rider, Caswell was primed for a sound bite.

World's Best Premiere, watch it here.

Everyone was there. These bros!

These shutterbugs.

The Duff brothers made it!

I was out in the Ibiza Love Parade tent.

A crush of thirsty humanity.

The Dunc plows through. The place was PACKED!

From here it was all sort of a blur. I think the spirit of the Stone must have overwhelmed me 'cause all I can remember was a swirling melange of high air, high fives and that Stone, that cosmic fuckin' Stone! Needless to say, I came up short on my photo duties. Pretty bummed. But then it hit me: Why don't I just do what my bros in the social media biz do every day and just steal (share?) photos that other people shot? That's a thing, right? Why hadn't I thought of this before???!!!

From there I went straight for the #truetothis #hashtags. Before I knew it, my work was done! No wonder CNN fired all their photojournalists. This is way easier. #sharingisnotstealing #foshofoshofosho

What? I didn't even see these dudes! Naawwsty!


Steve Black knows a thing or two about a night out in the OC.


The first of many Sheckler shots. Nice to see he still has time for the bros.



So THAT'S what it looked like in there.


There was a photo booth?? Where was I?


Dr Dave, about to give Greyson a beard adjustment.


I heard it was more like 5000!


Babes, everywhere.


Don't remember seeing these bros there, but the hashtags don't lie.


Hardflip Carlos met up with the Berrics' Josiah Gatlyn, lookin' burl!


The ocean halfpipe stuff is AMAZING.


I should just hire @windowseatpictures next time. He nailed it.


That's why we hired him, @guanmu.


OMG, me too!


All the photos from the event are for sale up on @aikacollective, jus sayin'

Sheckler was the must-have photo of the night, for sure.

@desireemoore takes a break from emailing to cut loose with the #PNW crew. Nice!


Sick shot @joelmontecalvo!

Killer smiles!

These bros!


You can always count on @doubledunc to get to the meat of the matter.

Unorthodox aerialists Greyson and C Blair.


Whatever, pervert.


The group shot I missed. Thanks @response_dist!


Wait a second, maybe this one is better.


Yep, good times indeed! Sorry I zorched out. Congrats Volcom bros! Thanks #hashtaggers! You saved my life!

Two covers heating it up this month: Raven Tershy nose grabbing a back tail way over vert at FDR and Figgy getting crooked down a 24-stair monster. Tons more Stay Flared tour highlights inside, 20 pages if you're counting. Other travel tales include an epic Dubai mission for We Are Blood and the Asphalt Yacht Club voyages to Hawaii. Tom K and Frank Shaw both get the Heads treatment and music-wise we got interviews with Morrissey and Slayer, so that's worth the admission price alone.
Add this one to your collection.
