True To This Video Premier

by Administrator 30. March 2014 14:23

We are teaming up with The Red Carpet Night Club and Volcom for the premier of Volcom's latest video "True To This".  A motion picture celebrating America's First Boarding Company. When Volcom was founded in 1991, it was the first company to combine surfing, skateboarding and snowboarding under one brand from its inception. This way of life influenced the anti-establishment style and attitude that defined a generation. The cultural phenomenon was best captured when Volcom released "Alive We Ride" in 1993: a film documenting the raw excitement and spontaneous creativity inherent to the lifestyle. Twenty years later, with the release of "True To This", Volcom again captures the energy and artistry of board-riding in its purest forms. 


Doors open at 9pm on Friday at The Red Carpet, and we will be starting the video right at 10pm.  See you there!
