The pink carpet (yes, pink, not red) laid the ground outside the theater as announcer-extraordinaire Chris Cote kicked off the Periscope live show at 6:45pm with none-other-than Mr. Richard Woolcott giving us some background into past Volcom movies and what we were to expect of Psychic Migrations.

SANTA CRUZ, CA - September 19, 2015

Tons of people showed up at the Rio Theatre in Santa Cruz for another stop on the Psychic Migrations premiere tour. Our local Volcom dude, Ken ‘Skindog’ Collins, gave out shirts, stickers, coozies, pins, skates, hats, shoes and more… Psyched groms went into a frenzy over all the stuff. It was a quality time with our local surf crews, young-up and-comers to old school legends and everyone in between!

SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA - September 24, 2015

Our San Luis Obispo premiere of Psychic Migrations was held at the historical Fremont Theatre and it surely did not disappoint. Two stars of the movie, Nate Tyler and Ryan Burch, were happy to make the trip to this premiere and had a ton of goodies to throw out to the crowd. One stoked grom even scored a surfboard from Nate! We are happy to report that grom safely made it out of the theatre without getting mobbed by his peers. In all, it was an excellent evening, coupled by an aesthetically-creative theatre setting and a great crew of folks.

ENCINITAS, CA - September 26, 2015

The Psychic Migrations premiere in Encinitas parked itself at the lovely La Paloma Theatre and opened its doors to a full line of enthusiastic movie-goers. The line wrapped around the block, filled with young grommets, teenage youth, moms and pops, and just flat out salty surfers. Hometown hero, Ryan Burch, introduced the film with Director Ryan Thomas and threw out lots of Volcom product into the rowdy crowd. A great way to end the California leg of the Psychic Migrations premiere tour.
