The conception of a plan is a beautiful thing. The execution is a different thing all together. Conceived on a autumn afternoon in a placid office setting. The whirring of fans and tapping of keys providing a monotonal backdrop. But no morning, lunch, afternoon or Skype meetings could have pre-pared them for the storm they were so unwittingly brewing. From Lisbon to Paris with the Volcom team, via Ericeira, San Sebastian and Hossegor. They would call it Eurothrash and it would be their vehicle to drive however they wanted.
Three countries. Four surfers. Special Guests. Planes, Trains and Automobiles. Late nights. Early starts. From all time Cave, to fine dining in Paris to turning it up San Sebastian and everything in-between. Super Bocks. Toll Roads. Trains. Vans. Pintxos, Hysterical Laughter. Hangovers bad enough to make grown men cry. 15 man surf checks. 15 man bar crawls. 3 hour lunches. Suspicious bottles of water. “Where’s my wetsuit”. The eternal fin key hunt. Red Wine. White Wine. But somehow they kept it together. Became a functioning machine. Kept the wheels on the road.
“A well-orchestrated shit show”. Eurothrash became a part of them as they became a part of it.
As finished in the European cradle of civilisation - Paris , they couldn’t help but feel humbled. A City whose streets gave birth or played host to; De Gaulle, Chopin, Bardot, Hemingway, Baudelaire, Napoleon, Debussy, Monet, Orwell, Edith Piaf.
They may not be the first to thrash their way around Europe, but we sincerely hope they are not the last.
Long live Eurothrash!
