Volcom Stone's Wild In The Parks Championships 2013

Volcom’s 2013 Wild in the Parks tour came to a climactic end at the company’s headquarters Saturday, October 19, 2013!

The 2013 series has scoured the globe to find the best young prospects that skateboarding has to offer.  After six months and 11 tour stops, more then 140 highly talented competitors made their way to Costa Mesa, California in pursuit of Volcom’s $15,000 cash purse and the title of 2013 ‘WITP’ champion. With the stage set, the action was underway!

A packed crowd of professional skateboarders, industry heavyweights, and skateboarding enthusiasts set the scene, as the 14 & Under Division got down to business. Alex Midler was a force to be reckoned with as he destroyed everything in his path with technical perfection.  Alex landed both bs and fs 270 lips on the handrail in zone 1, kickflip bs lip from the euro gap to rail in zone 3, nollie fs feeble on the rainbow rail in zone 2, and many more throughout.  If that wasn’t enough to claim 1st, Alex secured the win by landing a buzzer-beating bs 270 kickflip lipslide on the handrail as the crowd erupted in disbelief.  Tanner Oliver was right behind Alex impressing the judges with a clean bs smith bs 180 out on the zone 2 rainbow rail, bs kickflip over the euro gap to flat in zone 3, and finished things out with a redeeming bs tail shuv out on the zone 1 hubba to lock down 2nd place.   Gilbert Estrada rounded out the top 3 by ripping a sw 360 flip down the stair set in zone 1, a bs bigger flip up the zone 3 euro, and put down a crowd-wowing hardflip late fs 180 on the zone 2 pyramid. These young guns all displayed why skateboarding has a bright future.

The 15 & Over Division was next to attack the zones like a wolf stalking a lone sheep that had lost its herd.  Mason Coletti made his presence known immediately by landing 5 heavy tricks that traversed all 3 zones in less than a minute.  This was extra impressive since Mason had recently recovered from a broken kneecap that left him sidelined for over 6 weeks. Mason pulled many noteworthy tricks including an impossible lipslide on the zone 2 rainbow rail, alley oop fs 180 sw bs crook on the hubba in zone 1, and a gnarly kickflip fs 50-50 from bank to rail in zone 3 for the win.  Tanner Van Vark didn’t waste any time getting the juices flowing before putting on a show.  He stomped out a hardflip across the pyramid in zone 2, a fakie ollie sw bs crooked to regs on the hubba in zone 1, and finished his performance with a perfect lipslide transfer into the jersey barrier in zone 3. His performance was very impressive as he secured the 2nd place position.  Nathan Hammond also mixed it up as he blasted a powerful bs kickflip over the down rail in zone 1, a fakie full cab down the stairs, and hammered out a huge ollie late fs shuv down the euro gap to flat. Nathan proved that you “don’t mess with Texas” and placed 3rd as time expired.

The Open Division was now ready to finish things off as a full moon cast its rays onto the skatepark from above. Dashawn Jordan dropped the gloves immediately by landing a bs bigger flip over the euro gap to flat in zone 3, a hard flip fs board on the zone 1 handrail, a next try bs bigger flip fs board on the handrail, a huge fakie fs kickflip over the hip in zone 2, and many more to take the title of 2013 WITP Open Division Champion! Tyson Bowerbank was trading punches with Dashawn the entire way.  Tyson rattled off many technical tricks including a kickflip fs nosegrind pop out off the creeper ledge in zone 3, a fs 360 kickflip over the hip in zone 2, and a perfect over the bolts bs 360 bigflip down the stairset in zone 1 for a well deserved 2nd place finish.  Chris Gregson was next to show his presence by stepping into the ring. Chris is always a crowd favorite by skating fast and destroying everything in his path.  He laid down a stylish bs noseblunt to fakie on the jersey barrier in zone 3, blasted a 15 stair-sized fs flip down the 7 stair in zone 1, and capped it all off with  a massive fs 360 across the pyramid in zone 2. Chris performed very well and took home the bronze podium position.  These guys truly raised the level of skateboarding and set the bar even higher than expected.

By Roberto Aleman Sometimes you have to pay to play; the price of sharing a once-in-a-lifetime journey through the mystical land of Oman was enduring temperatures hot enough to fry an egg on the pavement – literally. Eniz Fazliov, Daan Van Der Linden, Harry Lintell and Ben Raemers stepped up to the plate and traded sweat for experience during a week cruising the sultanate. With practically every country from north to south and east to west already explored, Oman continued to be one of those countries which for some reason no skate team has ever visited – until now. We arrived late at night and already the scorching heat was a system shock. We knew that during the night the temperature was as good as it would get, so we didn‘t even want to guess how it would be during the day. Come morning, we awoke to 45ºC heat that was much more intense than we could have imagined. It was hard to leave the hotel and even breathing outside proved challenging, it was like inhaling fire! That said, we were all excited to be in a country we had never been to before, and felt honoured to be the first ones with the privilege of exploring it. Soon a decision was made; we would rent a generator and skate at night. To be honest, in the end it didn't really matter. The days were too long, the nights were too short and the burning heat was everywhere, all the time. In the end we decided to skate all day with breaks in between to go to the beach or to an oasis in the desert! Check back on Thursday, August 28, for the second chapter of Searching For The Shade, Volcom in Oman. Thanks Red Bull for the support. The Crew Daan Van Der Linden, Gap 50-50 © Roberto Alegria Eniz Fazliov, Frontside Flip © Roberto Alegria Even though Ben got injured on the first few days of the tour, he enjoyed the whole trip like a kid. Daan bet he could frontside noseslide this rail first go. Word is bond and he collected some Omani Rials. In a little shopping centre we found these perfect black marble ledges to film lines on. Despite the heat, Eniz Fazliov skated the ledges non-stop until he was exhausted and locked this fakie nosegrind mid-line. Eniz skated every spot we went to. This hubba at the city's main stadium was perfect for this gnarly noseblunt. I do not know who bought the plastic guns, but at any time of the day you could end up with an arrow to the forehead. Just like Eniz. At every spot we went to in Muscat, a big crowd of people would gather to watch. I guess it's not a particularly common sight to have a bunch of Westerners jumping down handrails. Harry can adapt to all kinds of terrain, from the most technical spots to the gnarliest ones. He didn't want to leave this spot without leaving his mark on it, so after a few tries he stomped this flip crooks. Harry was one of the riders who skated the most during the tour. He filmed moves at every single spot we went to, and refused to leave this handrail without making this nosegrind. Like a big oasis in the desert, this is like the Central Park of Muscat. Thankfully, it is full of spots and Harry put down this switch flip on one such gem. Roberto came but had an injured ankle the whole time. He still managed to walk on water, however.

Wild In The Parks - Ashbridges Bay Skate Plaza, Toronto, Canada 2014

Stop #9 of Volcom Stone’s Wild In The Parks crossed the boarder to witness some ice cold ripping at Ashbridges Bay Skate Plaza in Toronto, Ontario Canada. It has been a few years since the WITP tour has had the opportunity to hold a stop at Ashbridges Bay Skate Plaza. The TO skate scene is heavy with riders that have made it to the “major leagues” of the skateboard industry. It’s not hard to tell why as you roll though the city filled with spot after spot in all shapes and sizes. This vast array of skate opportunity translates into a skater that can handle anything in their path. Competitors showed up at the plaza early to warm up on the zones defined for the day’s action ahead. The Plaza holds a little bit of everything that would test the competitor’s skills gathered in the city. Zone 1 would be the A-frame pyramid with a grass gap and manual pad, zone 2 was the standard 8 stair set with a round rail and hubba ledges, and zone 3 was a double set with a rounded hubba ledge and square rail. Competitors And Spectators Gather For The Contest Breakdown And Secure Their Viewing Positions The day’s events started with the 14 & Under Division and the threat of some inclement weather in the forecast.  This meant that the competitors would have to go for the gusto from the very beginning. These young rippers to got into the thick of things with a 50-50 body varial out down the 8 stair hubba in zone 2, a bs feeble fs 180 out in zone 3, and a solid half cab heelflip over the A-frame in zone 1. Jonah Melnyk was a force to be reckoned with as he skated away from the competition.  He landed a kickflip fs boardslide down the 8 stair rail in zone 2, a first try bs kickflip over the grass gap in zone 1, and a bs tailslide bs bigspin out in zone 3 to mention a few of the many tricks he landed for 1st place in his division. William Cohen had his name echoing throughout the park as he landed a popped kickflip down the 8 in zone 2 and a fs boardslide shuv-it out on the square rail in zone 3 for 2nd place. Bailey Seager took his own line with a big ollie late shuv to flat off the A-frame in zone 1, a solid lipslide down the rail in zone 2, and a 360 inward heel down the double set in zone 3 to capture 3rd place. Bailey Seager In The Middle Of A 360 Inward Heelflip Down the Double Set In Zone 3 William Cohen Lands A Fs Boardslide Shuv Out In Zone 3 As He Points Out The CN Tower Jonah Melnyk Lands A Kickflip Fs Boardslide On The Round Rail In Zone 2 The 15 – 21 Division now gathered their boards to make a bid for the top spots in a sea of stacked competitors.  There was a sense of urgency in the air as these riders rattled off tricks the entire way through. We saw a kickflip fs 50-50 on the square rail in zone 3, a hippy hop down the 8 set in zone 2, and a gap out to backside tail slide on the chunked flat ledge in zone 1 to name a few of the many.   Noah Cleroux battled through the masses with tricks like a huge hardflip to flat over the A-frame in zone 1 and Fs Hurricane In Zone 3 that helped set him apart to gain the 1st place nod.  Chris Shannon kept up with tricks like his nollie bs feeble grind down the 8 rail in zone 2 and flip trick technicality that had the judges posting solid scores in approval and awarding him with 2nd place. Dylan Campbell kept TO proud with his solid trick selection in all zones for the remaining 3rd place podium position. Chad Gagnon Pops A Massive Bs Kickflip To Flat Off The A-frame Pyramid In Zone 1 Jagger Bond Lofts A Bs 180 Over The Hubba Ledge In Zone 2 For the Crowd In The Background Dylan Campbell Locks Into A Proper Fs Bluntslide In Zone 2 Mother Nature Had A Little Moisture In Her Plans As WITP Patrons Gather For The BBQ Lunch Break 10-Year-Old Jesse Bittle (Left) Sticks A Fs Boardslide Down The Rail In Zone 2 And 8-Year-Old Cayde McKinstray (Right) Kickflips Into The Bank During The 10 & Under Jam The Open Division was now set to finish things off as ominous clouds stacked up in the distance.  This was an indicator that we were going to see rain and this was going to be their time to shine.  The crowd of spectators jostled for their viewing locations in anticipation of what was about to go down. As time rattled off we saw these “top dogs” land a huge 360 flip to flat off the A-frame pyramid in zone 1, a perfect fs kickflip over the hubba in zone 2, and a bs feeble fs 360 out on the square rail in zone 3 that had everyone going bananas.  Jamie Bennet was the man landing tricks throughout and blowing minds with a cab 270 kickflip fs boardslide to fakie on the 8 rail in zone 1.  One spectator said “I can die happy now that I have seen that in person.”  Needless to say, Jamie took home the top spot for his efforts.  16-year-old Jayden Bono had a ton of tricks on lock, landing a kickflip fs lipslide on the 8 rail, a fs 180 to sw over crooks on the 8 rail, and a variety of flip trick variations that boosted him into 2nd place.  Royce Plourde stomped a sw fs bigspin over the rail in zone 2 amongst other raw maneuvers that had the crowd slapping down their boards and sending him into the clutch position of 3rd place overall.

Dew Tour 2014 - Portland

Ryan Sheckler and Alec Majerus cruised up to Portland, OR for the Dew Tour contest this past weekend. There were two contests held, one was a best trick contest down the 10 stair rail and the second was the downhill "streetstyle" contest. Alec dominated the Best Trick contest with a barrage of gnarly tricks so there was no surprise that he was awarded first place! Watch the edit from Thrasher Magazine below for proof. The next day was the "Streetstyle" competition which was a gnarly downhill course set up on the gritty streets of Portland. Still sore after a the best trick contest the day before, Alec still entered as well as teammate Ryan Sheckler, who just started skating again after a recent knee injury. Both were neck and neck going into the 3rd runs and the only thing holding Sheckler back was the backside tailslide on the shipping container at the end of his run. On the very last run, Alec was in first and Ryan dropped in and nailed the backside tailslide to fakie for the win! Check out some photos below and head to for more photos and a full recap of the event. Photos: Chris Ortiz Watch both of Ryan's and Alec's runs below!
