Volcom Hot Spot // Bordeaux

According to many surveys, Bordeaux’s in the top 3 favorite cities of French people. At sixty miles from the ocean, the capital of Aquitaine has retained its theatrical, secret atmosphere; it’s pride and often-rebellious nature.  Cultivated as the city is, it’s not shy of outside influences and especially Southern ones. The Spanish trend of outside areas can now be seen clearly outside most cafés and restaurants on the oh-so-many windy roads of Bordeaux. The evenings become alive in tapas bars and continue into the hot night. Our Volcom Store Manager Mathieu and his team have prepared this 24h or more hour program to help you navigate through their city.

 

To start the day with a few activities, or just mellow cruising, there’s two choices available for you: the Darwin hangar or the skate park of Bordeaux.

The Darwin Hangar is a result of the ambitions to bring together: artists, musicians, painters, skateboarders, all in one place... Achieving a beautiful utopia, allowing urban actors to enjoy a magical place which combines unusual projects, unique spaces and warmth. The hangar is in all simplicity an eco-designed indoor skate park, dedicated to urban culture. Thanks to the patronage of the Endowment Fund, it has gradually been converted into a hangar, largely with the help of recycled materials.

The skate park of Bordeaux, on the Quai des Chartrons, is one of the largest open spaces of its kind in France. It’s a massive 2350 m2 and 110 meters long.

If you spent a lot of energy in the morning, you'll probably be really hungry at lunch. To satisfy your hunger, we advise you to go to Edmond. The burgers are homemade with a guaranteed quality (meat born, raised and slaughtered in France, soft bread prepared on site every morning, cheese from a Bordeaux refiner).

Similarly, West Coast offers homemade burgers and they even have a Food Truck (please go to the website to check the location).

Finally, in a vintage and industrial style, Catering Bagels offers in its two restaurants, an entire universe built around the Bagel and rock music.

In the afternoon, you can have a ride to “Les vivres de l’art”. A space dedicated to art, mainly street art or music. The large surface area of the site allows for fragmented areas so that the space can be divided between different practices and artists.

To start the evening, A cantina, a tapas bar / restaurant from Corsica will do nicely. The place comes from a concept created some years ago in Calvi in Corsica. Imported in the early summer of 2011 to Bordeaux, A Cantina will offer traditional and modern Corsican food, all in a warm and friendly atmosphere.

You’ll have two options: the tapas bar on the ground floor and/or the traditional restaurant upstairs.

If you want a more Street Food friendly atmosphere, go to the cozy little place called Fernand Lafargue in the heart of Bordeaux, there Santosha offers inventive and exotic cuisine described as "Asian Street Food", mostly made ​​from Asian recipes from various influences (Bali, Thailand, Indonesia, etc ...).

You can eat here or take away the very large portions. Even tea, coffee and lassis can be taken away. However, don’t arrive too late or you’ll most likely be greeted by a very long queue.

For background music, the Café Brun is the place that suits you. For several years, this traditional pub in Bordeaux has attracted a very eclectic clientele of regulars, students, revelers but also tourists and businessmen, all in a fun atmosphere. This pub bar conveys a cool but warm atmosphere thanks to its design created from objects and antique furniture.

Feeling funk and soul? Go to the Apollo. The name "Apollo" returns directly to the Apollo Theater in Harlem, NY. James Brown, the sacred monster of funk, music and African American culture. Its style, values, spirit and soul are all passed onto the people at Apollo!

 

For the late hours, there’s several choices available for you to continue the night.

L’entrepôt is a new concert venue opened since early September with a nice program.

On a docked ferry, iBoat unfolds on three levels: a concert venue and electro clubbing; a restaurant with creative cuisine with two terrace bars; an event and exhibition space. The place can be seen as a cultural center for electronic music and digital arts thanks to its on-point program.

If you like rock, Hereticclub is neither a trade nor a club, members of the crew who work in bars, entrances, programming, and promotion are part of the 8 million of French who are below the poverty line go here. The space was created to be a little freer, to let people live their independent scenes and alternative networks more or less all with the same motto: passion, independence & love for music.

 

Finally, if you start feeling hungry around sunrise, go to the “marché des Capucins”, this is the perfect spot for a good meal after all the partying.

 

Then last but not least – Don’t miss the Volcom Store of Bordeaux. Located on Rue St Catherine, on one of the main streets of Bordeaux. Take a ride through the Store and update your wardrobe with some of the season’s new arrivals.

Week 18: Fatal Jamz "Heavenly Choir" | Volcom Cyber Singles Club
Burger Records x Volcom present Cyber Singles Club, features music from the newest breed of Burger Records stars in the making, recorded exclusively at Volcom Studio, and will be released for free download & streaming every Monday for 20 weeks beginning April 17th. Week 18: Fatal Jamz - "Heavenly Choir"   Grab the free download Fatal Jamz formed during a busy summer for singer Marion Belle. "I formed the project in 2013 in the middle of recording a record with Dan Horne (The Lilys + Beachwood Sparks) and a bunch of my favorite L.A. players," he says. "I had a group going at the time called Bowery Beasts and this record we were recording was going to be our second full length. It came out as something very different and it went from there into Fatal Jamz." The newly christened Fatal Jamz received some positive attention early on with a single. "I started producing singles with my friend Nic and we dropped 'Rookie' on the bandcamp and it immediately got a lot of love online," recounts Marion. "From that one song we got asked to tour with Sky Ferreira and Smith Westerns." Burger Records and Gnar Tapes released the debut Fatal Jamz album, Vol. 1 in 2013. "I met Sean and Lee initially through my friends at Gnar and The Memories," recalled Marion. "They have been very supportive, setting up shows and DJ nights. They are really the first people to give the music a platform which I've always appreciated. It's been easy and cool to be apart of what Burger's been doing, which is obviously historic." "Heavenly Choir" is the first new Fatal Jamz song since releasing Coverboy in 2016 on Lollipop Records. If you are picking up a dark romantic vibe, you aren't misled. "In my songs I'm the lord of the dark garden of dreams," explains Marion. "I live for romance and the danger of love." "Heavenly Choir" may in fact signal the direction for future Fatal Jamz. "I wanted to write something very blood, red and gothic," says Marion. "It ended up being a new kind of anthem for us and maybe unlocking a new direction for the next record."

They made their Burger Records debut in 2014 with Late Night with David Loca followed by Return To Cherry on Mother of Pearl. The last Part Time album, Virgos Maze, was released by Burger in 2015. "Burger Records is great," says David. "They believe in artists' dreams, which in turn realizes their own." Over the years, Part Time has seen several lineup changes. The "Regular Part Time Joes," as David describes it, "these days include: guitarist and keyboardist Billy Trujillo, bass barbarian Tony Leal, and our dear friend, the original atomic blonde on vocals, Kristin Caballero." Together, this group brings us a unique take on a '60s classic. As David puts it, "simply a silly punky / new wave cover of a song by Arthur Lee's 'Love' off of the Da Capo album.""

Post Heat Interviews – Day 2 US Open of Surfing Huntington Beach
The US Open of Surfing has landed in Huntington Beach, CA, and the waves are firing! The Volcom crew, including Team Manager and Coach, Matt "Bemmy" Bemrose, has been down on the beach every day watching our team riders surf their way through heats and rooting them on from the stands. Yesterday, we sat down with Bemmy to get some insight on what it takes to work with some of the world's top female surfers, differences between coaching women's surfing vs. men's surfing, and more. With Maud Le Car's big win yesterday against 6x World Champ, Stephanie Gilmore, and Coco Ho advancing to the quarterfinals (beating current World Champ, Tyler Wright), it's safe say Bemmy's on a good roll! How long have you been with Volcom I started surfing for Volcom when I was 17, then started working for Volcom full-time at 28. I’m 39 now, so about 23 years haha! When did you start working with Coco Ho and Maud Le Car? The first trip I did with Coco was in 2007 to Fiji. I wasn’t working directly with her then, but earmarked her as a future star. Actually, working directly with Coco, that began in 2012. Working with Maud has been on and off over the last two years, but if I get an opportunity to work with her at an event I’m all over it. Maud, Bemmy, and Coco celebrating after Maud's huge win over Steph Gilmore. Who was the first female surfer to ever impress you? Lisa Anderson. She really brought style into women's surfing. Is there a different approach you take when working with female surfers? A little more attention to detail. Things like: where to paddle out, setting lineups, holding priority, etc. More technical things, but women's surfing has come a long way and I've been really impressed with how Coco and Maud have handled the pressure of competition in and out of the water. Coco Ho How do you recognize a potential star athlete and what are some signs of a true competitor? A never-give-up attitude is the biggest telltale sign. Also, a true competitor shows signs of composure under pressure at an early age. Coco Ho mentally preparing before her heat. Outside competition, what are some signs of true surf talent vs. what can be taught in the water? A willingness to think outside the box and apply new maneuvers to your repertoire in a short amount of time shows true surf talent. How much of your job is life coach vs. surf coach? 50/50 for sure. Probably more life coach though haha! Maud Le Car greeted by boyfriend, Joan Duru, after her win against Steph. The US Open is a mad house full of people, competitors, fans, and brands to name a few. What can an event like this do for an up-and-coming surfer? Compete well and it can make you. For Maud, I guarantee this heat win against Steph Gilmore is the biggest confidence boost she’s ever had. With confidence comes self-belief. That’s all someone needs to take their surfing to the next level. Coco Ho has made her name on the scene and has done well at the US Open in past years, and she's just getting fired up! Maud Le Car qualified for this event through the trials, only to take out 6x World Champ Steph Gilmore in her Round 2 heat. How does that happen? What does it take, and do you think she'll be taking down bigger names in the future? What Maud just accomplished was outstanding. Beating one of the best female surfers ever in a CT event as a wildcard is hard to describe. It’s totally amazing in saying that Maud had the ability and firepower to beat Steph. We spoke all day long before her heat and worked out a tight heat strategy. We had Maud focus on her strengths with the mindset that any heat would be hers to win. When she matched up with Steph, it was business as usual. We spoke about controlling the heat from the start and sticking to her game plan, and that's exactly what she did. This win is life-changing and now Maud knows she has what it takes to mix it with the very best in the world. Coco Ho after her win this morning against current World Champ, Tyler Wright. All smiles!

Kelly Slater, nearly 4 decades of putting ThisFirst
Insecurity, sobriety, the feeling of filling a void in one's heart, are universal themes that have just as great of a potential to be destructive as they do to be the motivating factor in success. Sharing what drove him at a young age and what still drives him today, Kelly opens up about his family, relationships and how he stays focused on winning. As both the youngest and oldest surfer to ever win a world title, Kelly Slater's career successes stack up against the greatest in any sport; as an 11-time world champion, Kelly is one of the winningest athletes in history, more than Tiger Woods, more than Wayne Gretzky, more than Muhammad Ali. This rare glimpse into the psyche of the sport of surfing's most enduring competitor and innovator can be appreciated by anyone, surfer or not.
