Here’s a brand new flick from the crew at Volcom & Wasted Talent, documenting a trip from Lisbon to Paris, via Ericeira, San Sebastian and Hossegor.
“We would call it Eurothrash and it would be our vehicle to drive however we wanted.” explains Obi from Wasted Talent who set the initial wheels in motion.
“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.”
