Burnout: 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.


Burnout: Family Stone
Yep, nailed it.


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


Burnout: Family Stone
But some familiar faces never hurt - the Provosts party on.


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


Burnout: Family Stone
Mad heads in the VIP area.

A crush of thirsty humanity.


Burnout: Family Stone
The Dunc plows through. The place was PACKED!


Burnout: Family Stone
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
