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 us for the storm we were so unwittingly brewing.
And oh how we drove. With a flagrant disregard for personal preservation. 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, Planes. Hysterical Laughter. Sad Mornings, Hangovers bad enough to make grown men cry. 15 man surf checks. 15 man bar crawls. Dinners. Breakfasts. 3 hour lunches. Suspicious bottles of water. Petrol Stations. Ryan’s Boards. “Where’s my wetsuit”. Noa’s purchases. The eternal fin key hunt. Red Wine. White Wine. All time.
Eurothrash has been a hell of a trip but it’s all in perspective. Long may thrashing around Europe continue, in the same way that many greater figures then us have done before. (Notably Napoleon and Julius Cesar) – we’re not the first. We’re here right now and we fucking hope we’re not the last.
We’re a little tired but wearing a wry smile, a nod of the head and a knowing look under baggy eyes. Give us a moment to rest up and we’d do it all again tomorrow.
Starring: Noa Deane, Ryan Burch, William Aliotti, Alex Botelho, Charly Quivront and Gony Zubizarreta.
Thanks to Volcom for letting us do fun things.
