Volcom’s Wild In The Parks tour took over The Berrics in Los Angeles, CA for the 2015 Global Championships on Saturday October 17th with over 220 competitors traversing the globe for their shot at the $15,000 cash purse.
Over 15 countries spanning 6 continents were in representation and making a bid to stand out at The Berrics. This skateboarding haven has been the premiere proving ground for top tier pros and up and coming ams. This set the bar so high that good tricks only received a golf clap, the massive crowd fiending for the incredible. This call to action was answered in a big way as competitors threw down some NBD’s that left everyone reeling and wondering who would take the Global Championship title.
Petter Brunnatne cruised out with the Norway posse and earned 4th place in the 14 & Under Division.
Hailing all the way from Portugal, Gustavo Ribeiro laid down some hammers like this 360 flip lipslide and took home 2nd in the 14 & Under Division!
With a barrage of tricks in every zone, Daisuke Ikeda surprised everyone with an NBD mctwist in The Berrics! He placed 1st in the 14 & Under Division.
Ty Stigney from the Chicago stop placed 4th in the 15-21 Division. Kickflip bs lipslide on the A-Frame.
Caswell's Choice from Stop 1 Mateo Rael throwing down a kickflip front blunt on the A-Frame rail.
Tim Casey travelled across the country after taking the top spot in the 15-21 Division in Taunton, MA. Solid tricks like this 360 flip down the 7 stair contributed to yet another victory in the 15-21 Division.
Also coming all the way out from Japan, Yuto Horigome unleashed this backside noseblunt on the gap out rail. He placed 2nd in the Open/Am Division.
