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.

Wild In The Parks - St. Cloud Skate Plaza, MN 2014

Stop #6 of Volcom Stone’s Wild In The Parks delivered some hard knocks to the Granite City of St. Cloud Minnesota and their Skate Plaza Saturday July 19, 2014. The St. Cloud Skate Plaza was built on the premise of delivering a massive concrete platform for the youth of central MN to call home. Anyone that has had the opportunity to skate here has seen that it’s locals skate sun up to sun down each and everyday. This has lead to an explosion of new faces on the scene that are now battling the neighboring Metro area skaters for the top spots in the Midwest. The 14 & Under Division was first to take over the plaza just before the crack of 12:00 pm. These next generation rippers live in the now, not holding back for anything or anyone. Within the first opening moments of their heat we saw a nollie bs kickflip past the rock gap in zone 3, a proper kickflip to flat from the kicker in zone 2, and a super good 270 shuv-it lipslide to fakie down the double set rail in zone 1. Evan Schmitt was handling business all over the park, but notably he was working on a sizable hardflip to flat in zone 2 that had everyone crossing their fingers. Within the last 5 seconds of the heat Evan pushed through the wind to stomp his hardflip electrifying the crowd on hand and pushing him into the top spot. Ty Stigney followed his own path as he landed a body varial past the zone 1 double set, 360 flipped the rock gap in zone 3, and handled a bs bigspin to flat in zone 2 for 2nd place. Henry Gartland always puts together a solid performance with tricks like his impossible flip to flat in zone 2, kickflip over the rail and into the bank in zone 3, and a solid bs 180 nosegrind on the round rail in zone 1 capping off the top 3 in his division. 12-Year-Old Sean Robertson Sending A Kickflip Into The Flat From The Kicker In Zone 2 Henry Gartland Locks In A Bs 180 Nosegrind Down The Double Set Rail In Zone 1 Even Schmitt Caught And Landed This Hardflip To The Deep Flat In Zone 2 In The Last 5 Seconds Of The Finals The 15 - 21 Division had some heavy hitters ready to take over putting together a show for the mass of spectators on hand.  The guys really heated things up in all zones with tricks like a smith grind kickflip out on the flat ledge in zone 2, a backside 180 up the rock gap in zone 3, and a fs hurricane to regular down the double set rail in zone 1 to name a few.  Ryan LaRue had a solid game plan and stuck to it throughout his heat.  He landed a kickflip fs 5-0 on the flat ledge in zone 2, a hardflip bs 50-50 on the down hubba in zone 3, and a 360 flip lipslide on the double set rail in zone 1 to capture 1st place.  Jesse Johnson rattled off his own rendition of tricks like a high speed fs noseblunt on the flat ledge in zone 2, a 360 flip over the rock gap in zone 3, and a squared up kickflip bs lipslide down the rail in zone 1 for 2nd place honors.  Jake Braun had the jitters going into final only to shake the cobwebs off and turn it up to awesome.  He put down a fs kickflip over the rock gap in zone 3, a hardflip to flat in zone 2, and a solid bs bigspin fs boardslide down the rail in zone 1 to round out the top 3 in the division. Brad Hay Fully Locked Into This Bs Tailslide...And Threw A Bs Big Spin Out For Good Measure Jake Braun Floats A Nice Fs Kickflip Down The Rock Gap In Zone 3 Ryan LaRue Gathering A 360 Flip To Lipslide Down The Zone 1 Double Set Our BBQ Specialist, Emmet Klocker, Handing Out Some Signature WITP Style Hotdogs For A Long Line Of Hungry Competitors These 10 & Under Dudes Where Hyped To Get Their Turn As They Showed Off For The Crowd During Lunch The Open Division was now ready to put an exclamation point on the day and send it into overdrive.  There was no shortage of bangers throughout the entire division with the top spots up for grabs.  We saw a tail slapping bs bigger flip down the double set in zone 1, a massive ollie over the kicker to the flat in zone 2, and a bs kickflip over the rail in zone 3 and that was just a drop in the bucket.  Jonathan Reese was rousted out of his bed in the morning barely awake to jump in the car and get to the STC WITP.  It was a good thing that he made it because he absolutely destroyed finals.  He put down a kickflip fs boardslide shuv out down the rail in zone 1, fs feeble to fs 180 out on the rail in zone 3, and one of the biggest hardflips to flat in zone 2 right over the bolts capturing 1st place.  Corey Millett took himself and his mustache up to the top 3 by doing things like a shut down nollie heelflip bs lipslide on the rail in zone 1 to take 2nd place honors.  Tanner Van Vark continued his rein of top 3 honors with tricks like his high speed bs smith bs 180 out into the bank in zone 2 and his show stopping bs 180 fakie 5-0 to regular in zone 3 to end the day in 3rd place.

The amazing location of the new Parque das Geraçoes skatepark was the perfect fit for the event, overseeing the ocean, sunshine and a great skatepark with plenty of fun features. The skatepark of Tampa crew rocked the show with DJ Wade on the music commands and an international field of skaters that didn’t disappoint the crowd with stylish lines and so many tricks that went down.
