Lance won the Legends. The trophy was a hand giving the finger; Lance put more of a “piss off!” type of vibe to it. Till next year….

Surprisingly, this is SLS Headquarters. Like the Bat Cave, you’ll never find it on any map and I can’t show you any pictures of anything that happened there. Just kidding, I could, I just didn’t shoot any.

Volcom used to have its own record label, and while we were there we’d come across a Double Platinum (or I suppose it could have been plastic) record of an artist we’d never heard of, Cerebral Ballzy, so we queued them up and it became the soundtrack of the trip. You need to give them a try because, well because it’s cool to listen to a band that has such a great band name.

This is Remy Stratton. He was a 90s vert pro and also the guy who built the Volcom skate program from nothing. Here he is holding a photo of Rune and Matt Dove, if you look closely you’ll see Remy in the photo too, hanging from a trapeze mount like a Flying Wallenda while filming Chichigof.
