EVENT: 10th Annual Fun Fun Fun Fest Announces Return of Volcom Partnership for Skate + Ride Program
August 27, 2015
Fun Fun Fun Fest (FFF Fest) is proud to once again partner with Volcom, the leading modern lifestyle brand that embodies the creative spirit of today's youth culture, to help redesign and build this year's skate ramp, ride course, and curate the Fest's 2015 action sports program. Single-day and weekend passes to the 10th annual event, set to take place November 6-8 in Austin, Texas, can be purchased at funfunfunfest.com.
Volcom, with the help of local ramp builder Ryan Corrigan of HOLDONHEREWEGO and the Austin-based nonprofit Project Loop, will lead the charge in building the FFF Fest skate & ride events this year, including the return of the Volcom Super Collider. The super ramp, designed by legendary skateboarder Remy Stratton, debuted last year to rave reviews from athletes and spectators alike, and it has now become an integral part of the action-sports experience at FFF Fest.
"The Super Collider, like a music stage, is also fun to look at even when no one's on it. And then, there is that moment when the team jumps on deck with their boards in hand and the skate session explodes into some of the nastiest shredding ever, combined with the Fun Fun Fun Fest sights and sounds all around. I just can't wipe the smile off my face," says Volcom VP of Skateboarding Remy Stratton.
Volcom will also welcome back its renowned skate team for a series of demos throughout the Festival weekend, in addition to a variety of BMX riders that Project Loop is bringing to the 2015 Fest. Fans will have the opportunity to interact with their favorite athletes at special meet-and-greets and see some of today's top skateboarders and BMX riders compete up close and personal in a truly unique environment.
With Volcom's brand vision of 'True to This', the company continues to build on the foundation of board riding and their tradition of supporting self-expression in sports, art, music and film to connect with the millennial consumer, driven and determined to build a better future. The unique Fun Fun Fun Fest experience of alternative sports, music, comedy, and lifestyle makes it an ideal event for a Volcom partnership.
