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.

T.J. Robinson Locking Into A Bs Bluntslide In Zone 1

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.

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.
