Wild In The Parks - Denver, CO 2014

Stop #4 of Volcom Stone’s Wild in The Parks took to the mile high city of Denver, Colorado Saturday June 14, 2014.

There is no denying the insane amount of great skateparks that are popping up all over the Denver metropolitan. Some would say this area has some of the most amazing and creative parks anywhere in the world. Located in the middle of the skatepark madness lies the undeniable red monstrosity of “D-Park”. Denver Skatepark has been home base to the community since its inception in 2001 and continues to stake claim of one of the largest facilities in the entire country. You can ride this park everyday and still find a new way of skating it as time rolls by. It is no wonder these Colorado cohorts continue to get incredibly talented so quickly.

The 14 & Under Division stood at their starting positions ready to take over the skatepark at the crack of noon. This division is always great to witness as they represent skateboarding’s foundation for years to come. The boys showed serious skill as we saw a couple of them step to the big rail in zone 1 with solid boardslides, a blasted bs 180 to flat over the pyramid in zone 2, and a popped fs bigspin past the bank to flat in zone 3. T.J. Robinson captured the attention of everyone as someone said they wanted to “kidnap” him for his skate prowess… interesting thought? He also impressed the judges with a nice bs tail revert out in zone 3, a hardflip over the hip in zone 2, and a beautiful bs bluntslide in zone 1 to claim 1st place. Kyler Garrison had a solid bs flip over the hip, a proper late back foot kick flip down the bank to flat in zone 3, and large kick flip off the big drop in zone 1 for 2nd place. Justin Gallegos had a solid hardflip down the set in zone 1, a kickflip over the pyramid in zone 2, and a 360 flip down the bank to flat in zone 3 that solidified the 3rd place position.

The 15 - 21 Division came on strong with high speed skating and some heart stopping close calls.  The park has a few intersecting lines that can lead to some interesting scenarios to say the least.  As the heat progressed the competitors figured out the flow, which led into some rad maneuvers in all 3 zones.  We witnessed a rarely seen bs sugarcane on the bank to parking block in zone 2, a crowd-pleasing fs bluntslide down the big rail in zone 1, and a super nice bs 360 past the bank to flat in zone 3 to name a few.  Nick Kiery was determined to walk away with the win as he pulled a first try lipslide on the big rail in zone 1, a 360 flip past the bank to flat in zone 3, and capped it off with a gap to bs bluntslide over the pyramidS in zone 2 for the win.  15-year-old style king Dorian Dietrich greased his hair and greased all three zones for a 2nd place ending to his first year entering this older division.  While Devin Villanueba poked himself into the 3rd place spot with things like his deeply dipped fs feeble grinds.

A Huge Group Of 10 & Under Competitors Took Over The Park For A Halftime Lunch Performance

The Open/AM Division here in Colorado is somewhat indescribable since you have to witness it first hand to believe what just happened.  These guys know exactly how to manipulate any nuances of the challenging features in this park.  Weaving in and out of the zones we saw them pull a huge bs 360 melon from the roller section into the bank in zone 2, a massive benihana from the quarter pipe into the planter in zone 3, and a killer fs nosegrind down the big rail in zone 1 that had everyone jumping.  Once again, the unstoppable Julian Christianson laid down the heavy with many notable tricks including a ridiculous nollie bs 540 heelflip over the hip with only seconds to spare.  Top qualifier Phil Hansen kept it close with his own rendition of insanity and tricks like a bs wallride feeble stall pop-in in zone 3, a gap bs taillside on the pyramid in zone 2, and a 360 flip lipslide shuv-it out in zone 1 for 2nd place.  Dan Hunter captured the 3rd place spot with his unique style of skating that included a mind boggling slappy fs-5-0 kickflip out on the hip in zone 2 and a 360 finger flip variation down the stairs in zone 1 to name a couple.

Lava Rock Soap DIY
For our latest collection, Lava Rock, we were inspired to give our soap making skills a try with this rad DIY. This was by far the most time consuming DIY we have done, but the end results were worth the wait! What you need: - Shea Butter Soap - Clear Glycerin Soap - Food coloring (multiple colors) - Clear plastic cups - 2 oz cups - Measuring cup   Start by cutting your soap into little cubes and placing them in your measuring cup. If you get the large soap molds like I did, you're going to cut it in fours and grab one block and cut that into cubes. You're going to melt some clear soap and some white soap in separate batches.   Microwave the cup for about 15 seconds until completely melted. If you still have some lumps, microwave it just a bit longer.   Pour your melted soap into the 2 oz cups.   Next add your food coloring. Choose whichever colors you want for this particular soap mold. We chose blacks and blues with reds and oranges for our Lava Rock inspiration. 1 drop makes a light color while 2-4 make darker colors. You get to choose how light or dark you want your colors. Stir the color in well. This step gets a little messy so make sure to have some paper towels on hand.   Once you're done with all of your colors, you can sit and wait for them to cool or you can be impatient like me and stick them in the frreezer to speed up the process.   When your soap molds have cooled, place 2 thumbs on the bottom of the cup and push the mold out of the cup.   Start slicing your molds into thin shards and different shapes to give them a natural look.   Put your shards into the plastic cup.   Grab some of the clear soap that hasn't been used yet, cut it into cubes, place the cubes in your measuring cup and microwave them for 15-20 seconds until completely melted. Pour the melted soap into the plastic cup with all of your shards.   Repeat this step with the white glycerin soap. Pour over the shards again.   The point of this is to mend these pieces together and slightly melt them to give a milky effect. If they don't seem to be melting, pop the cup in the microwave for about 10 seconds.   Once your soap has cooled, make a small incision towards the top of the cup and peel it away.   Here is where you get creative. We went for a gemstone / mineral look. Cut down the sides at an angle. Once you've cut around the whole mold, get started on the top.   Once you get to the top, cut at a deeper angle to make a point. This will give you the look of a gemstone or mineral rock.   There you go! One lava rock soap mold!   These gorgeous soap molds make the best gifts and look so cute in your home!

Volcom Snow's The Launch - Watch Now!
Last month our Volcom Snow ams, better known as the Stone Army crew, loaded up the RV and charged up to Bear Mountain for Snowboarder Magazine’s ninth annual The Launch 2016 presented by Volcom. The Launch is an assembly of age 21 and under riders handpicked by the Snowboarder Magazine crew for a 4 day media shred frenzy, and this year it was brought back to the San Bernadino mountains and constructed by the Bear Mountain crew full of endless rails, transition and kicker possibilities. Despite some windy, blizzard, and sometimes great conditions the boys were on fire with non-stop bell-to-bell action! When it was all said and done, Brock Crouch was awarded Standout and 10 yr old Aussie Valentino Guseli took home the Super Grom award for charging almost every feature in the park!
