Big opening for Volcom store

ONE of Australia's leading surf brands, Volcom, opened its largest store in Australia yesterday with a celebration of skateboarding, giveaways and live music.

Volcom's new store at Coolangatta's Airport Central will feature one of the Tweed's best collections of surfboards with over 500 premium boards on display by shapers such as Channel Islands, Firewire, Chilli, Mayhem, Stacey, LSD and Vampirate Surfboards.

The official opening saw Sydney surf punk band the Goons of Doom and local band Pirates Alive take to the stage while professional surfer, Volcom team rider and lead singer of the Goons of Doom Ozzie Wright joined Volcom CEO Dougall Walker, and super grommet, Volcom surf rider and Volcom Skateboard team member Quinn Bruce addressed the crowd and introduced the new store's board lab.

The Volcom board lab will set a new standard in service and board stores with expert staff ensuring customers get the right equipment under their feet.

The new store will have the largest range of Volcom products in Australia and include skateboards, accessories, board bags, wet suits and luggage.

The massive store is sure to become a landmark once its four-metre- high Volcom stone is erected in the coming weeks.

The store will feature demonstrations, test rides and a service centre and will become the place to go for surfers, skateboard riders and fans of Volcom clothing.
