European team rider Alain Goikoetxea / Volcom Stone Age

Alain Goikoetxea Full Part from Volcom on Vimeo.
“Alain Goikoetxea has been skating for Volcom since ’98. In order to celebrate these 15 years of loyalty, he put together a full online video part with footage he’s been gathering over the last few years. For those who don’t know Alain, he is born and raised in the Basque Country and lives right up the hill from the famous La Kantera skatepark in Algorta, where he shreds almost every day and after all these years of skating it, still finds new lines and tricks that have never been done before. Alain is one of those guys where age doesn’t affect his progression, style and control. Skateboarding is a natural thing for him. Alain’s gnarboots never stop amazing us.” words by
