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.

Everyone Was Hyped To Get Some Free Food And Gatorade At D-Park


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.

Our local Volcom dude, Ken ‘Skindog’ Collins, gave out shirts, stickers, coozies, pins, skates, hats, shoes and more… Psyched groms went into a frenzy over all the stuff. It was a quality time with our local surf crews, young-up and-comers to old school legends and everyone in between! Photos: Yvonne Falk SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA - September 24, 2015 Our San Luis Obispo premiere of Psychic Migrations was held at the historical Fremont Theatre and it surely did not disappoint. Two stars of the movie, Nate Tyler and Ryan Burch, were happy to make the trip to this premiere and had a ton of goodies to throw out to the crowd. One stoked grom even scored a surfboard from Nate! We are happy to report that grom safely made it out of the theatre without getting mobbed by his peers. In all, it was an excellent evening, coupled by an aesthetically-creative theatre setting and a great crew of folks.

The line wrapped around the block, filled with young grommets, teenage youth, moms and pops, and just flat out salty surfers. Hometown hero, Ryan Burch, introduced the film with Director Ryan Thomas and threw out lots of Volcom product into the rowdy crowd. A great way to end the California leg of the Psychic Migrations premiere tour.

Daniel Norton and Kelly Scroggs Earn Their Spots at Lowers During the Annual TCT Bushfish in Texas!
The Volcom Totally Crustaceous Tour’s Bushfish Surf Series went off last weekend at Bob Hall Pier in Corpus Christi, and it was nothing short of a good ole Texas time. This event is always one of our favorite venues on the whole tour. The good people of Texas always welcome the crew in with open arms and an amp level that is off the meter. This year was nothing short of the same, and we were stoked to be back in town. Corpus and Bob Hall Pier provided us with a very own swimming pool in our front yard. Friday we set up at Benjamin’s Surf n Skate for the pre-event sign up party and premier of Volcom’s new surf film Psychic Migrations. The kids and families were there fired up ready to help get the fun going. There were games, laughs, high fives, Wienerschnitzel hot dogs, and smiles all around. We signed up a bushel of competitors, gave out some free Volcom gear, then Mother Nature said “Oh Hey, Hello.”  With bolts of lightning shaking down the thunder from the sky we decided to postpone the movie until after the Bushfish contest and awards ceremony. Everyone retreated back to their humble abodes to get ready for Saturday’s contest. The surf was a little small but the crew made the best of it! Come morning time we reassembled at Bob Hall Pier with fun little waves to get the contest going, and you could already smell the BBQ cooking before the sun was even all the way up. We got the event kicked off with an amazing live performance of the Star Spangled Banner from Rob Henson and the always-impressive Ian Appling. True Texas style. Ian and TCT workhorse Rob Henson played us the greatest National Anthem I've heard in years. The surf was contestable all day and the Texas Bushfishers took full advantage. We got the event rolling with the Juniors division and the American flag speedo rocking Ian Appling ended up stealing the show for the second time that day to take home the win. The Girls division in Texas is always a highly contested group, and at the end of the day Olive Smith took home the hardware for 1st place. The Groms in Texas are no push over either, after battling it out all day Dallas Cunningham took the win, and with a name like Dallas, in Texas, it wasn’t surprising. Then there was the Squids, always the crowd favorite, and Kason Wells stole the show with a winning performance. The Pro guys were up next, true Texan and local ripper Daniel Norton ran the table here and was rewarded with $500 worth of biscuits and another one of the spots filled for the TCT Global Championships at Lower Trestles! Bubba Gainnon smoother then Texas Toast! Texas is a unique place and for that we run one extra division true only to the region, we call it the Round Up. These guys are great and compete like no other. At the end of the day well established and known Texas ripper Morgan Faulkner stole the show and took home $250 for his efforts. I'm concerned for those hand prints? When it was all said and done we had another great Bushfish event and moved upstairs to the pier restaurant, Mikel Mays Beach Side Bar & Grill, where they invited us in for our awards ceremony, and to show the much-anticipated premier of Psychic Migrations. Needless to say there was hoots, hollers, and yew’s a plenty! Thank you so much from all of us at the Volcom TCT to everyone that made this event possible once again. We may be on to the next stop but keep the brisket and biscuits warm for us Texas, we can’t wait to come back!!! Morgan Faulkner has competed in almost every single Bushfish and has taken home a pretty penny with a handful of wins. Kids enjoying the Pool. Kelly Scroggs is going to Lower Trestles! He Is one of the first four Pro-Am to be qualified. There is that darn Texas Unicorn again! Squids was the biggest division of the day with 36 little dudes and dudetts looking for their Lowers glory! The winners of the largest division of the day! Your Watermelon award winner! This young lady did not stop all day! Morgan and the young Watermelon victor Grace show off the winnings! Daniel Norton is just a good ole boy from Texas, no Instagram, no Facebook, no nothing! Hopefully we can find him for Lowers Kids getting excited for the awards! Bubba Gainon staying busy out there. The winners and all their amazing prizes! Ian Appling talented beyond his year in and out of the water.
