Volcom Hot Spot // Lyon

Beyond its international reputation as the capital of gastronomy, Lyon is one of the most attractive cities in Europe for its quality of life and economic dynamism. The geographical position of Lyon makes it a particularly popular town for French people: a few hours from the sea, mountains or even Paris, the capital. Some even say that it is a small Paris without the inconvenience, and they are probably right. This week, Olivier our Volcom Store Manager and his team share their best spots of the city. We’re sure you are going to love these places!

 

Where to have a drink?

The Bicycletterie welcomes you for a warm coffee and to pause, repair your bike or just to enjoy Wi-Fi, with a selection of original, quality product.

On the menu, delicious handcrafted fruit juices, coconut juice and some of the best iced coffee and tea in the world. They also offer breakfast and snack options.

Voxx is a place in three steps. At 8 am, take your first coffee, the one that you need to wake up. Cars rushing past the terrace are also there to pull you out of your sleep. At 12 am, lunch break, where you can swallow one delicious oriental burger while your friend will be struggling to finish her gigantic salad. At 6 pm, after work, you can meet more friends and spend time listening to the varied music.

 

In French, the name "Poule au pot" might be that of a neighborhood bar. Location: a quite festive one. Cocktails: trendy as hell. Prices: more reasonable than you’d think. Might perhaps sound quite spread out, but with its on-point music program, which isn’t too elitist, everything is mixed perfectly.

As soon as the weather is good, La Barge is one of the nicest places to enjoy a cocktail or glass of wine on a barge, as the name suggests, in the middle of the palm trees. All wrapped in a very good musical atmosphere.

Where to eat something?

On Croix-Rousse square, at daybreak, there’s a unusual silence in the area. Then gradually hundred traders pile egg baskets and heaps of fresh vegetables. Stretching almost a kilometer, the huge market wakes up and soon, the place is crowded and the ruckus is noteworthy as people turn up to spend a perfect Saturday morning, devoted to organic products.

 

The "Bistrot de St Jean" is typically a "Bouchon Lyonnais " in one of the oldest streets in the city. They serve the most prestigious Lyon cuisine around.

More meat!!!!! This is the motto of Butcher.

A selection of meats that regularly changes with the chef, paired with a bourbon or a classic cocktail from the Butcher's Team which is always motivated and ready to welcome you from Tuesday to Sunday for lunch and dinner.

Are you hungry ... or just downright greedy? In all cases, the "Bistrot des Voraces" in the area of Croix-Rousse will please you! With its beautiful terrace and stonewalls, be ready to enjoy your meal in a warm and friendly atmosphere. The food is 100% authentic, made ​​from fresh and seasonal ingredients.

 

Where to party?

Switching between concert stage, club, and café/ bar with terrace, La Marquise day and night is characterized by diversity. It’s a place with good humour where you easily can meet new people any time of the clock.

Then to one of the latest additions to the Lyonnaise night, everyone was talking about this rooftop project in Lyon, and they didn’t have to be disappointed: Le Sucre. Less than two years after opening, the place has practically traveled the world posing as one of the coolest places of the moment. Appearing first as a place of culture, it is alive with events, whether music, graphics or even private.

What is the Maison Mère? It is primarily an artistic and festive room of its own kind in the very center of Lyon. It is also a cozy bar and a melting pot open to all the public. It’s the best place to have a drink with friends or lovers, see a live concert in the evening, or sweat until the morning dancing away to great music.

Established in 2003, Les Nuits Sonores is a festival dedicated to electronic music culture. It takes place every year around May. It now includes more than 100,000 spectators each year and invites 250 artists from around the world and takes place in nearly 50 locations in the city. The festival is now known in Europe for its size (an urban event, very invested in public spaces and heritage sites, including brownfields) and for the quality and the intransigence of its programming.

Where to experience something different?

If you’re an art lover, take a turn at the Contemporary Art Museum and the Museum of Les beaux arts. One feature of the city of Lyon that doesn’t cost and is worth experiencing is all the alleyways. If you have time just go and get lost and find yourself in places you’d never thought of going. There are about 500 alleyways in the city so good luck. They are mainly located in the neighborhoods of Vieux Lyon and Croix-Rousse.

Where to be True To This?

Except the City Hall, the Skatepark of Lyon Gerland offers a covered and secure area of 1500m ² with two unique amenities offered, a big ramp (height 3.80m + 4.20m extension) and a mini dual spine (18m length x width 9m).

The Skatepark of Sergent Blandan covers 1230m ² and the paths in the park are raised, bend and turn, to fit perfectly into the natural environment allowing all from young kids (from 8 years), to the more experienced ones, to explore a number of original obstacles. Not to forget the bowls at Berges du Rhone…

The people are great, the food is delicious and I had a great time here!  The waves have been amazing every day and that's the reason why I do these events. I was trying to build my scores throughout the event and I finally did that with the 10 at the end. I drove up here from Santiago and have been surfing the whole way. Those days in France when it was massive helped me a lot to feel confident in this kind of waves and I’m now over the moon with this victory! »    Photos Credit : Sebzanella Congrats again William!

Volcom Launches 'Volcom Stone Made' With Release of FW16 Jeans and Chinos Collection
Today, Volcom introduces the Volcom Stone Made design philosophy with the launch of their FW16 Jeans and Chinos collection. Meticulously engineered for life on the road, Volcom Stone Made products feature the highest quality materials with groundbreaking technology integrated at the fiber level and an unparalleled attention to detail resulting in some of the most profound products in the market today. Designed in collaboration with Volcom's world-renown skate team and working with America’s foremost manufacturer of high quality denim, Cone Denim®, Volcom Stone Made jeans feature one or more of the following attributes; "Superior Stretch" with Cone's S GENE® technology, "Anti-Microbial" for stopping the stench of odor-causing bacteria, "Durability" for enhanced resistance to tears and abrasions, and "Water Resistance" for increased liquid and stain repellency. With 2016 marking Volcom's 25th year as America's first boarding company and Cone Denim® celebrating their 125th year milestone as America's premiere denim maker, the timing was right for the two companies to come together to bring to market first an unprecedented collection of performance stretch denim jeans. Included in the Volcom Stone Made collection is Volcom's exclusive introduction of "Anti-Microbial" stretch denim woven by Cone, as well as enhanced "Durability" through the use of CONESTRONG™, and "Water Resistance" via the application of CONEgard™. Staying true to this philosophy, Volcom's venerable chinos program also received the Volcom Stone Made treatment with the introduction of two new styles: the Gritter and the Stranger. Boasting similar "Anti-Microbial," "Durability" and "Water Resistance" attributes as Volcom jeans, these chinos are built to wear easier and last longer. Designed for Skateboarding, Recommended for Life. Taking a cleaner approach to the brand's timeless style of jeans and chinos, Volcom has streamlined their fits across the entire pants category and elevated the performance features on every pair of jeans. With their deep roots in skateboarding and using history as a guide, Volcom has taken the last 25 years of designing pants and scrutinized and modernized every last detail to create a line of jeans and chinos made from high quality materials and construction methods while maintaining the key signature details they've become known for. Every pair of Volcom jeans features felled interior stitching and clean finished pocket bags for added comfort and less chafing, nearly indestructible buckle button closure and upgraded dual finish hardware for increased durability, a hidden phone pocket and double belt loops for convenient utility, while the asymmetrical detail of the offset back yoke and the "V" belt loop remain uniquely Volcom.

Costa Rica's Gold - Surf Team Goes South!
So we took a trip to Costa Rica to shoot our all-new Fall boardshorts & swimwear collections, and instead of ending the story right now with "and the rest is history," we'd like to give you a little insight into our majestic journey to the rugged Central American country. Enter Balaram Stack, Coco Ho, Nate Tyler, Maud Le Car, Ryan Burch, Quincy Davis, and Andrew "Droid" Doheny. Picture a desolate rainforest and narrow unstructured dirt roads echoed by a variety of bird chips and animal calls only to be triumphed by thoughts racing through your head of "where's the beach and how fast can we get there." 3,400+ miles from the nearest home in California, obvious transplants (no help from Balaram & Droid's bleached hair), and a crew full of expensive surfboards and camera equipment is your scene. photos by Tom Carey Quickly finding the way to our newly-found two-week home w/ an epic pool inside a quaint little village, we linked up with local legend Tony Roberts who is a mastermind that paved the way for the community down here by designing skateparks and running various surf tours. After ripping through some fun spots inside the village, and getting weird in the neighboring jungle, we hopped on a friend's boat and made our voyage to the famous Witch's Rock. For any surfer, Witch's is a bucket list mission and our journey there was one for the books! Witch's Rock Our goal was to shoot the team in our new boardshorts and swimwear collections, get some rad action shots, explore the land, and simply have a good time on this journey through a quest for spiritual intoxication. And we got that. But we got more, a lot more. Take a ride with us through a captivating feel-good photo book from our Costa Rican adventure: Droid: pro surfer, pro model.  Maud Le Car (left)Coco Ho (center)Quincy Davis (right) Coco Ho Ryan Burch w/ one of his hand-shaped mystical twin fins Quincy Davis (left)Coco Ho (middle)Maud Le Car (right) Quincy Davis       Buddies Oh hey, Quincy Droid rips!
