As always, the van rolled into San Jose the day before to feel out the park and show the zones. This stop we had Milton Martinez and Axel Cruysberghs show the zones with a cameo from San Jose local Peter Raffin!
Stop #4 of Volcom’s Wild In The Parks brought the heat to east San Jose, CA at Mayfair Skatepark on Saturday July 11, 2015.
San Jose has always been a hot spot for skateboarding, especially since the inception of the Tiltmode Army back in the early 2000’s. It was fitting for us to make a stop here since Volcom’s Caswell Berry, a Tiltmode Army aficionado, calls San Jose home. Caswell has been at every WITP stop searching for talented skateboarders to jump in the van with the Volcom team after each event. His history along with the rest of the Volcom team pushed a highly talented group of skaters to put down a memorable performance.
Luis Perez made this frontside flip down the 7 look easy. He earned 2nd place in the 14 & Under Division.
Eddie Gonzalez perfectly executed this backside nosegrind on the hubba in the 14 & Under Division.
Driving out with his family all the way from Arizona, Austin Salzman earned sixth place in the 15-21 Division with rad tricks like this perfect hardflip down the 7 stair.
Andrew Lopez 360 flip in zone 1, earning his way into third place of the 15-21 Division.
Gio Georgallis got creative in zone 2 with this kickflip foot plant on the rail during the Open/Am Division.
An injured arm couldn't stop Adam Emery from ripping. This smith down the hubba helped him take 6th in the Open/Am Division.
There were only a few to hop on or over the rail in zone 3. Dylan Hilton popped up to 50-50 flat and down. He took home 2nd in the Open/Am Division.
Walking away with 3rd in the Open/Am Division, Jesse Perez also took this massive heelflip over the pyramid to flat.
Taking first place in the Open/Am Division, PA to CA transplant Mike Berdis slept in the skatepark with his homies the night before the contest. He killed the zones with a barrage of technical tricks like this big spin front blunt.
Not only did Pero Simic take home fourth in the 15-21 Division on his 18th birthday, he was also "Caswell's Choice" and got to hop in the van with the team the next day. Tailslide on the rail in zone 3.
