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.

Live Like Sion Gromfest
The 6th annual Live Like Sion Gromfest went down this year at PKs in Poipu Beach on the south side of Kauai to celebrate the life of big wave surfer and Pipeline specialist Sion Milosky. PKs is a special place for Sion as he grew up surfing here with his family, spending countless hours on the beach and in the water. To hold the event at this stop strengthens his legacy and continues to keep his spirit thriving. The Live Like Sion Gromfest is a grassroots event which brings together countless friends and families to help preserve his memory and his love for the ocean while giving back to the future generations of surfers on Kauai. Spear-headed by Milo Mirguia, Sion's best friend and pillar of the Kauai surf community, the event garners hundreds of entries each year with handfuls of volunteers, friends and family, contest surfers, and donations to the Live Like Sion Foundation. Saying a prayer for Sion at Poipu Beach Park. Photo: Tai Vandyke The morning of this year's Live Like Sion Gromfest kicked off to herds of excited groms from all over the island. First heat of the day paddled out at 7am to perfect head-high swell, trading off waves one after another, which continued throughout the day. One of our Volcom Little Buddies, 10-year-old Tiger Abubo, won the boys 14 and Under Groms division while taking out the national champion in the process. After tons of heats, great waves, and sunburnt-and-tired surfers, we relocated to Poipu Beach Park and gathered in a huge circle to say a prayer for Sion. We were blessed with a huge spread of delicious food and beautiful surroundings, while fond memories of Sion were being shared amongst the crowds. It was an epic day full of surfing and smiles, but in the end, it was all about celebrating the life of a beloved waterman, husband, and father. LIVE LIKE SION. "Did you see that!?" Good vibes only! People from all over Kauai volunteered their time and effort. Dropping in! Tiger for the win! Thanks to everyone who came out and supported the event!   More on Sion Sion Milosky was a big wave surfer from Hawaii, and a premiere Pipeline specialist, who tragically lost his life in a surfing accident at Mavericks in Half Moon, Bay, CA in 2011. He was survived by Suzi and his two young daughters, Awakea and Saraiah, as well as countless friends and family.

CJ Collins' first time to Spain for the La Kantera Pro
Cj Collins isn't your normal 14 year old boy. Not only does he absolutely rip on a skateboard, but he has more stamps in his passport than a most other kids his age. In June we took him to Getxo located in the Basque Country region of Spain for the 2017 La Kantera Pro. While he's been to Malmo, Sweden and Florianópolis, Brazil for the Vans Park Series, it was his first time to Spain and he was pretty excited. Before he hopped on a 14 hour flight to Bilbao, Spain he stopped by the Volcom HQ store to pick up some new clothes for the trip. CJ with a little wallride in the Volcom U.S. HQ store before picking up some clothes for his trip. Packing for his first time to Spain! Grabbing a drink at Volcom U.S. HQ in his new "Supply Stone" Pullover Hoodie In the Volcom HQ store CJ was really digging the 'Stone Supply' pullover hoodie, 'Lino Stone' Tee and a new pair of dark green 'Frickin Modern' stretch pants. Still with some time to kill before he had to head to the airport, he decided to hit the Volcom HQ skatepark for a quick sesh. CJ Collins dropping in, in his new Frickin Modern stretch pants. CJ Stalefish at Volcom HQ With his bags packed and and passport in hand CJ hopped in the van and headed to the airport. The flight was delayed a half an hour but with the in the grand scheme of things what's another half an hour when you're waiting to get on a 14 hour flight? CJ taking his bags out of the van at the airport. Just waiting to get on the plane in the Lino Stone tee When he arrived in Bilbao, Spain he met up with the rest of the team including Grant Taylor, Collin Provost, Axel Cruysberghs, Omar Hassan and others at the airport as they were all flying in from various places at the same time. Once all together, the crew made it to the Moana Surf and Skate Hostel where they were staying. Complete with a mini ramp, little street course and all sorts of other stuff to get into, CJ was in heaven! After a solid nights rest the next day we headed down to La Kantera, an old skatepark with prime real estate on the beach where the contest was held, to get some practice in. The bowl the contest was in is more reminiscent of a backyard pool with a steep shallow end and 10 foot deep end. This made it a little difficult for the heavy hitters like Grant and Omar but for little CJ it was just his size. CJ wasted no time as he was frothing to skate, blasting airs in practice and figuring out his line for the contest. CJ blasting a stalefish in his 'Supply Stone' pullover hoodie The next day was the contest and CJ was put straight int the finals. While waiting for his heat him and Grant Taylor would stay warmed up on the old crusty halfpipe behind the stands. In his heats he would land trick after trick, really impressing the locals who've skated the bowl their entire life and the spectators who have never seen CJ skate in person. Every wall he would do a trick and the crowd would collectively wonder 'how did he just land that?!?' While the pros would blast huge airs and do difficult tricks, most of them had a hard time staying on their board for the entire time. The 'Frickin Modern' stretch pants were basically made for boneless' like this! Stalefish in the deep end as the entire crowd watches. In the end CJ took home FIRST place! First time to Spain and skating the notoriously difficult La Kantera bowl, he came out on top! CJ was just as surprised as everyone else and the crew was extremely proud of our little guy. With CJ taking the top spot at the 2017 La Kantera Pro, everyone in the crew wanted to celebrate CJ's epic win, but how to you party with a 14 year old? While most of the crew enjoyed drinks by the beach with the rest of the skaters in the contest, CJ eventually made it back to the Hostel to rest up. Grant Taylor stoked for CJ after the contest! Next day we tried to get in the streets to hit some spots, but the rain wasn't letting that happen. Collin Provost was trying to explain '10% parties' to CJ, basically meaning that when you win a big contest prize you immediately spend 10% of the winnings celebrating. The question arose again of 'how do you celebrate with a 14 year old? Well if you're CJ Collins you spend it on a soccer ball to kick around with your bros, go souvenir bracelet shopping with Grant Taylor and of course, hit the arcade! First purchase with your contest winnings, a soccer ball! Just about 10 minutes later Grant accidentally kicked it to the water by where we were eating. (We eventually got it back though) Grant negotiating deals for souvenir bracelets for the entire crew. What better way to spend a rainy day then hitting the arcade with your buds. After some quality time at the Arcade we headed down to the beach for a mellow La Kantera Pro wrap party right next to the skatepark. With a decent amount of candy in his system, CJ had plenty of energy to spare so he played soccer with some of the locals on the beach for a few hours while the rest of the crew enjoyed drinks and food at the party. All that running on the sand got CJ tuckered out while the rain started to fall. By the end of the weekend it was unfortunately time to head home. Everyone flew out around the same time but still had plenty of time to kill in the airport while we waited. To pass the time CJ likes to draw in a sketchbook he carries around in his backpack. He likes to draw portraits of people and this was one of our video director Lannie Rhodes. Remy Stratton also pointed out that Grant Taylor used to do the same thing when he was that age too. CJ in the 'Base' tee with his portrait of Lannie while waiting for his flight home. Check out more new Volcom boys clothing online now.

Week 18: Fatal Jamz "Heavenly Choir" | Volcom Cyber Singles Club
Burger Records x Volcom present Cyber Singles Club, features music from the newest breed of Burger Records stars in the making, recorded exclusively at Volcom Studio, and will be released for free download & streaming every Monday for 20 weeks beginning April 17th. Week 18: Fatal Jamz - "Heavenly Choir"   Grab the free download Fatal Jamz formed during a busy summer for singer Marion Belle. "I formed the project in 2013 in the middle of recording a record with Dan Horne (The Lilys + Beachwood Sparks) and a bunch of my favorite L.A. players," he says. "I had a group going at the time called Bowery Beasts and this record we were recording was going to be our second full length. It came out as something very different and it went from there into Fatal Jamz." The newly christened Fatal Jamz received some positive attention early on with a single. "I started producing singles with my friend Nic and we dropped 'Rookie' on the bandcamp and it immediately got a lot of love online," recounts Marion. "From that one song we got asked to tour with Sky Ferreira and Smith Westerns." Burger Records and Gnar Tapes released the debut Fatal Jamz album, Vol. 1 in 2013. "I met Sean and Lee initially through my friends at Gnar and The Memories," recalled Marion. "They have been very supportive, setting up shows and DJ nights. They are really the first people to give the music a platform which I've always appreciated. It's been easy and cool to be apart of what Burger's been doing, which is obviously historic." "Heavenly Choir" is the first new Fatal Jamz song since releasing Coverboy in 2016 on Lollipop Records. If you are picking up a dark romantic vibe, you aren't misled. "In my songs I'm the lord of the dark garden of dreams," explains Marion. "I live for romance and the danger of love." "Heavenly Choir" may in fact signal the direction for future Fatal Jamz. "I wanted to write something very blood, red and gothic," says Marion. "It ended up being a new kind of anthem for us and maybe unlocking a new direction for the next record."

Behind the Scenes with Georgia May Jagger & friends at Volcom Women's Fall '17 shoot
Our fall '17 photoshoot was a huge reminder of why we, at Volcom Women's, love doing what we do. To be able to bring together such strong, inspiring women from all over the world and bring them to our skatepark was a huge accomplishment for us. The energy was buzzing and the creativity, contagious. It was one of those perfect days that we knew we could never replicate again because the timing and the people involved are what made it so special. Hailing all the way from London, Georgia May Jagger brought her effortless, fashion forward style to the mix along with her cool, down-to-earth personality.   Our favorite Los Angeles rock duo, Deep Vally, played an intimate show for our models and rocked the skate park.   The New York based Skate Kitchen babes showed us their skills, skateboarding along side the mens skate team and dominating throughout the photo shoot.   LA model & artist, Cameron Rose, showed us her artistic skills as she did a live art installation.   Models Ella Weisskamp and Tina Kunakey, chatting behind the scenes.   Special guest photographer, Olivia Jaffe, came from Los Angeles to shoot some behind the scenes shots and film with her amazing VHS camera to capture the old school vibes of the shoot.

My City - Heredia, Costa Rica - Kervin Miranda
My City is a Volcom video series showcasing the Latin American Skate Team as they take us through their hometowns, showing us where they grew up skating and what struggles they had to overcome along the way. In episode three of My City we visit 21-year-old Kervin Miranda in his relaxed, quaint hometown of Heredia, Costa Rica, located just north of the country's capital of San Jose. Surrounded by superb colonial architecture and beautiful gardens, Heredia might not have the ideal grounds to grow up skating, but nothing great comes with an easy start. While the capital is more developed and urban to resemble a metropolitan area, flourishing with a variety of ideal skate spots, Heredia lies among one of the many rural landscapes of central Costa Rica, primitive in city streets and structures. So rural, that according to Kervin, some places don't even have established streets, and if they do, they are not constructed properly and the sidewalks are burdened with cracks and gravel. While that seems tough to find a decent spot, the police have been cracking down in recent years on skateboarding throughout the city, which leaves skateboarders questioning their options. Watch Episode 1 of My City with Jhancarlos Gonzalez Watch Episode 2 of My City with Jesus Munoz So, what do skaters do when they're not allowed to skate freely throughout their city streets? They are relegated to skateparks. More and more skateparks have been populating the surrounding areas of Heredia due to the higher volume of interest in the activity, but skating in the streets versus in a skatepark is just not the same. Kervin and his friends realize that's just a part of skateboarding in Costa Rica, but that's what makes it all worth it. The challenge. The payoff. The irrational pursuit of it all, and they wouldn't have it any other way. Kervin, frontside boardslide in Heredia.
