Burnout: Twenty Years Stoned

The OC and ATL’s finest converge to celebrate Grant Taylor’s 20 years on Volcom with a skate jam, killer bands, bros, babes, Big Hongry and the premier of Lannie Rhoades’ epic GT documentary. Cheers, Stoners!

Sponsoring a six-year-old is a gamble, but when Volcom signed Grant Taylor as a mere tot there’s no way they could’ve known just how much their investment would pay off in pure stoke-a-tude 20 years later.
