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.

Searching For Shade Chapter 2: Skating in Oman

brightcove.createExperiences(); Words by Roberto Aleman Photos by Roberto Alegria Spots abound in Oman, and most of them are gleaming marble. I think we got kicked out only once in a fortnight. All of the Omani people were very friendly and surprisingly accommodating when we were skating in front of their businesses or homes -- they just enjoyed watching something they had never seen before. The city of Muscat is blooming and the skate spots pop up at a similar pace. The old town by the harbour is an incredible cluster of narrow streets and local shops with scents, colours and an atmosphere that I will never forget. The food was incredible, and the beer appeared just at the right time. In Islamic countries you must respect the rules and two such rules were not to drink in public or to remove your shirt. It is seen as a lack of respect. We wished that we could have had the time to skate more spots, but we had to leave many unconquered due to the extreme heat and the consequent lack of energy! See more photos below from Roberto Alegria Ben Raemers got hurt early on the trip but he did get this boardslide down a triple set hubba The crew rarely got kicked out and the locals really embraced what they were doing out there!

#MusicMonday || Goldroom

We are such huge fans of Goldroom's album "Embrace"! It sounds like a shimmery slice of laptop disco that isn't quite a dance ballad nor a full-on pop song. Instead, "Embrace" registers somewhere in between those two poles, with stereo beats amply orchestrated by tom-tom flourishes and well-placed synth ripples.    Listen Here :: http://bit.ly/1t6bMJe

SEARCHING FOR THE SHADE - CHAPTER 1: SKATING IN OMAN

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.

Eli Hannemen, Dylan Lehmann, and Jackson Bunch lead the charge at the 1st Pufferfish stop of the year!

The first stop of the Pufferfish Surf Series once again landed on the beautiful Hawaiian Island of Maui at Lahaina Harbor. There was plenty of sunshine and perfect little waves for the frothing Groms. We gave the competitors free lunch and showered them with tons of free giveaways just for coming down and hanging on the beach. The pros surfed their little brains off and when it was all said and done, Dylan Lehmann took the $500.00 first place prize and the coveted Golden Ticket solidifying his spot at TCT Champs in April. Check below for full contest details and all the winners. This girl is two! Take a second and think about what your were doing when you were two, because I bet it wasn't this! Eli Hannemen surfed on another level all day and went on to win the Groms division. @revdsurf is a new supporter of the TCT and we are pumped to have them on board! Dante Silva laying one down during the semis. Borg on the grill means the kids fall in line and mind their manners. Jackson on a fun left hander with the famous "Trinity" sailing vessel in the background. Jadeo showing his apprentice the ropes of calling a perfect event. Monte Grant on a fun Lahaina set. Monte would take 4th in the Juniors! Bringing the Mayonnaise and Flour to the Islands. Jackson Bunch took over the squids division, which in Hawaii is quite a feat now a days. We had so many Squids that we had to break it down into two divisions. Flour face smash for the win! Dylan Lehmann letting the tail fly in the earlier heats. The winners with all their goodies. Kail Daly and Tai Van Dyke linked up on this little gem in the early morning light of the Harbor. The Squids talent at the Pufferfish is second to none here is another shot of 4 year old Squid Justin Roberson.
