The Psychic Migrations premiere in Asbury, New Jersey was an absolute blast. Located right on the beach at the historic (and haunted-feeling) Paramount Theatre, the evening began with the TCT Jellyfish early sign-up party at the theater from 4-6pm, ending right before we opened the doors to the eager crowd for the premiere.

Our VIPs: Farias, Brave New World, Spellbinders, Island Style, Inlet Outlet; and our athletes: Balaram Stack, Mike Gleason, Pat Schmidt, who are all from around this area, showed up early and were instrumental in the success of this premiere, especially Mike Gleason. We haven’t seen that kind of community love and support in a long time, if ever. The surf community is alive and well in NJ, and the Volcom Stone is as strong as ever!

After about an hour of letting the patrons drink, socialize around the bar, eat some tacos (catered by Surf Taco), we had everyone take their seats and did a short introduction on the stage preceding the movie. Volcom's Billy Hume introduced Mike Gleason, Balaram Stack, and Pat Schmidt, and then passed the mic on to Gleason for an enduring, heartfelt speech. And what a speech it was.

After the speeches it was time to watch Director Ryan Thomas's masterpiece, Psychic Migrations. The theater was packed with well over one-thousand spectators in attendance, and the enthusiasm was high. Thank you to everyone who came out and we hope you enjoyed Psychic Migrations!
