Wild In The Parks - L.E.S. Skatepark, New York City 2014

Stop #10 of Volcom Stone’s Wild In The Parks fortified the Northeast skate scene beneath the Manhattan Bridge at L.E.S. Skatepark in New York City on Saturday Sept. 13, 2014. Planes, trains, and automobiles carry a mass of the skaters to the Big Apple’s go to spot of L.E.S. Skatepark each and everyday.  From sun up and beyond, the park is packed with a ton of East Coast legends and the legends to come.  This place breads a type of skateboarder that can masters the art of intersecting lines and weaving through the crowds of the big city.  Learn the ropes here and you’re on the way to becoming a professional navigator. This normal day-to-day activity served competitors well as they would have to zigzag though nearly 200 of their peers to take the 2014 L.E.S. WITP top spots. L.E.S. Skatepark Was Packed To The Brim With People All Day For The Wild In The Parks After a quick riders meeting, the 14 & Under Division took to their ready positions and kicked off the day’s action.  It was a mad scramble throughout as we witnessed a perfect 360 flip bank-to-bank over the pyramid in zone 2, a popped heelflip down the 5 set in zone 3, and a last second bs kickflip over the apple gap in zone 1.  Jonathan Santos knew the keys to success as he skated fast and confidently.  He landed a kickflip fs boardside on the down rail in zone 3, a locked fs feeble on the ledge/rail in zone 2, and caught a solid kickflip over the apple gap in zone 1 that sealed in the 1st place goodness.  Hal Scarborough came in from Florida to make some waves with his solid trick selection and long slide/grind combinations to take home 2nd place. While Bill Zhang left it on the table with tricks like his bs big flip down the stairs and a bs kickflip over the apple to snatch a 3rd place nomination. Billy Zhang Throws A Big Flip Down The 5 Set In Zone 3 Hal Scarbrough Mid Tailslide In Zone 1 Jonathan Santos Hits A Back Lip In Zone 2 The 15 – 21 Division continues to be the bread and butter of the events as of late.  We had over 75 competitors putting it out on the table to see who could shine though in this talented group of rippers.  There was no shortage of radness as we saw a 50-50 kickflip out on the ledge/rail in zone 2, a kickflip fastplant over the apple gap in zone 1, and a stylish kickflip bs boardslide to fakie on the rail in zone 3.   Blain Partridge was on the scene from Jacksonville, FL to make a statement in the northeast.  He put down a bundle of tricks including a bs bigspin to fs boardslide in zone 3, a quintessential gap to bs lipslide in zone 2, and a fs bigspin over the apple gap that landed him in 1st place for his efforts.  Brett Ross had his name echoing throughout downtown NYC with tricks like a bs overcrooks down the rail in zone 3 and a gap lip to fakie in zone 2 for 2nd place.  Duron Simons kept things super tech with a first try fs shuv-it bs crooked grind on the zone 2 ledge/rail and an absurd variel heel bs crooked grind down the hubba in zone 3 that helped him into the top 3. Dan Robbins Speeds Into Zone 1 For A Lofty Ollie Over The Out Ledge Christian Henry Locks Into A Bs Feeble Fs 180 Out On The Ledge/Rail In Zone 2 Mustafa Abrams Plants His Foot On The Apple's Core For This Kickflip Fastplant In Zone 1 Blain Partridge Impressed All Day Long With Tricks Like This Bs 180 Nosegrind To Regular In Zone 2 The 10 & Under Division Took Center Stage During Lunch To Land Some New Tricks Before The Rain Started To Fall What's Better Than NYC Pizza For Lunch And Some Gatorade To Wash It All Down? The Open/Am Division was now set to finish off the afternoon with a final bang, bang, bang.  They say that the “shade is better when it’s cast by a money tree” and all these guys wanted their fair share of the green backs.  With a $500 cash purse on the line, these guys handled business by landing a bs 360 bigflip over the pyramid in zone 2, a kickflip bs 50-50 fs 180 off the out ledge in zone 1, and cast a gap melon grab to boardslide from the quarter pipe to the down rail in zone 3 that had the crowd slapping their boards in delight.  Dylan Nieves is a seasoned veteran on a skateboard and landed a slew of dastardly maneuvers in his heat.  He ran away with 1st place as he landed tricks that included an over the bolts fs big heelflip over the apple gap in zone 1 and a memory searing hardflip to flat over the pyramid in zone 2.  Leo Heinert has to be one of the nicest and funniest dudes on a skateboard.  The guy ripped the entire day and landed a 3 flip lip in zone 3 and a nollie big heel over the apple gap in zone 1 to help him into 2nd place.  While Derek Holms took his mastery to the finish line for 3rd place before the rain came in and shut things down…kind of. Dave Bohack Blast A Quick Melon To Flat Silhouetted By A Bs Tailslide In Zone 2 Justin Healey Pulls Some Beef Out Of This Kickflip Over The Apple Christopher Pierre-Jacques Kickflips Into A Bs Noseslide Fs 270 Shuv-It Out In Zone 2 Leo Heinert Floats A Fs Nosegrind To The End Of The Out Ledge In Zone 1 Carlo Carezzano Flips Into The Ledge/Rail In Zone 2 Jake Keenan Does The Unthinkable With A Gap Melon To Boardslide From The Outside Quarterpipe In Zone 3 Piro Seirra Showing Some Serious Style On This Perfect Bs Smith Grind In Zone 2 Rain began to fall and the crowd moved underneath the shelter of the bridge above. Almost instinctively, an impromptu L.E.S. double set jam began to go off on its own as if a landing strip from above was sent down from heaven.  In the spirit of keeping things going, we through in $100 and a Kicker Audio system for the handful of guys that were going for it.  Many tried to pull it all together, but only 2 tricks were accomplished.  Dylan Neives ripped a hardflip over the set to get $100 and the Rev’d Skater award and Dave Bohack rolled away with a 360 flip and a new sound system for his room.  Props to everyone that had the stones to even try that set. Dylan Nieves Falls From The Sky With A Huge Hardflip Down The Infamous L.E.S. Double Set To Walk Away With An Extra $100 And The Rev'd Skater Award We would like to extend a big thank you to Steve Rodriguez, KCDC’s Amy Gunther, and the city of NY for their help and having us back at L.E.S.

The day began in the dark as volunteers gathered to help set-up for the 3rd Annual LIVE LIKE SION GROMFEST. The contest venue was at PKS on the south side of the island of Kauai, a place where Sion and his family had surfed countless hours together. Even in the dark you could already hear the surf as the tail end of a south swell pounded the shore. The island was buzzing as they knew that the day of the contest had finally arrived after being postponed a month before due to a close call from two hurricanes. With over a 150 entries, the beach was packed as everyone posted up and got ready for a long day of family fun, while remembering SION MILOSKY, and his way of life. The LIVE LIKE SION GROMFEST was designed around SION's belief of family first, friends, and surfing all combined into one event. Aunty Nalani Taylor opened the event with a prayer and a Hawaiian chant asking for safe passage and reminding everyone why we were here. The first heat paddled out at 6:45 as the buzzer started the first heat a little after 7:00. The diviSIONs were all full, ranging from keiki push-in all the way up to 16-under Longboarding. This year was a little different as a 14-under open diviSION was added for rated kids and o fcourse the "PILI" diviSION was in there too. Keiki push-in had 50 Keiki alone which was the most entries so far to date. In the "PILI", which was a team diviSION, a adult teamed up with a Keiki under-12. Some of the names in the "PILI" were Dustin Barca, and Evan Valiere, long time friends of SION and his family. Families and friends cheered the Keiki on all day and smiles and laughter echoed the beach. It was nice to see so much happiness and good vibes everywhere you looked. Waves were firing coming in at 3-4 foot and light offshore wind. The Keiki push-in stole the show again with the youngest competitors coming in at 3 years of age. People lined the waters edge as they cheered on their favorite. As the competition continued, Raffles were called out over and over with awesome prizes thanks to all the sponsors, supporters and the community itself. It was once again so great to see everyone come together and support such a great human being. The proceeds from the raffles went back to the LIVE LIKE SION foundation and will be allocated to different organizations and further the work of the foundation itself. As the day wrapped up, and the final wave surfed, the celebration continued as the awards ceremony moved over to Poipu Beach. Families and friends once again gathered together and cheered on all the finalist as the prizes and trophies were passed out. The Keiki's were glowing and wore smiles on their faces, as they walked up to get their awards. We're not sure who had more fun the Keiki or their parents! All and all, the 3rd Annual LIVE LIKE SION GROMFEST was a huge success and would not have been possible without the help of our sponsors, friends, families and volunteers. We would like to thank Volcom for their continued support, for making the shirts and hats, giving tons of prizes, and for always supporting the Keiki and of course SION MILOSKY! Also Oakley for their continued support and for all the glasses for the keiki, KonaRed and Poipu surf for the awesome trophies and always supporting the LIVE LIKE SION GROMFEST. A big thank you t oother surf sponsors, Kawika Carvalho, the community, the volunteers, the Beach house, and countless others that helped make this event a big success! Without you all this would not be possible. A sincere Mahalo and aloha to you all! See you all next year! The LIVE LIKE SION GROMFEST staff

210 competitors pack Pleasure Point for the TCT Greatwhite Surf Contest!

The 2015 TCT is in full effect and with 3 events under our belt its time to get to the meat of the tour. We rolled into Santa Cruz on Friday afternoon and pulled right into Freeline Surf Shop for the pre event parking lot party. We set up the grill, rolled in the quarter pipe, cranked the music and before we could blink there were just about 200 people screaming and yelling to get in the contest the following morning. The next morning we rolled up just as the sun rolled over the mountains and we got our first look at the pumping Pleasure Point. I mean it was pumping. The kids were frothing so we signed up the last of the 210 competitors and threw the Juniors into the line of fire first. The day rolled along perfect and before we knew it, it was time to crown a champion! Check below for a full recap of the pre event party and the Greatwhite surf contest! We signed up 150 kids at the biggest pre party in history. Tubes where rare, but there were certainly a few good ones. This is Trevor he entertained the pre party patrons all night. Eithan would go on to take 2nd place in the Juniors and earn his Golden Ticket to TCT Champs. Mini ramp at the Pre Party kept the crowd entertained. Nick HDez letting the tail fly late in the day. Skin Dog was in his element at the Pre Party. Collin Deveze is always one of the front runners to take the win, as you can plainly see. The crowd was thick all day with Pleasure Point delivering on her promise of great waves. Pleasure Point was offering up some amazing waves for the event and kids were taking full advantage. Champagne (sparkling cider) showered the winners and the Squids! 1st peak and Sewers were firing all day with non stop south swell. Liam Osborne dressed to impress for the awards ceremony. Willie Eagleton was in the zone the entire day and would go on to win the Pro Am division, earning him $500.00. The awards ceremony at Pleasure Point is second to none. Eithan was off to a great start getting one of the highest heat scores of the morning rounds.   The winners and all their goodies!
