Wild In The Parks - Hazard County Skatepark, GA 2014

Stop #8 of Volcom Stone’s Wild In The Parks stormed into the dirty south at Hazard County Skatepark in McDonough, GA on Saturday August 9, 2014

It has been a few years since the WITP tour has had the pleasure of hosting a stop at Hazard County Skatepark located just outside of the ATL metropolitan area. If you are familiar with this region, you know that Georgia boasts some of the rawest skate culture that exists on the planet. These guys know what lies at the core of skateboarding and its importance to the future of what we love to do. They take this passion and translate that straight back into their local scene through hard work and dedication. Their relentless efforts showed as hungry competitors greeted us at the skatepark over an hour before registration even began. Registration lines grew quickly and competitors pressed up to the door waiting for their chance to enter. Just after 10am riders were released into HCSP with nonstop action proceeding from that point on.

The Lines At Registration Formed Early As The Bib Numbers And Free T-Shirts Were Handed Out

The 14 & Under Division was now set to take over after a quick contest meeting breaking down the format.  After a few minutes, these young rippers settled into a rotation to blast through everything in sight.  We saw a double kickflip down the stairs in zone 2, a high speed fs smith grind on the long flat bar in zone 1, and a perfect fs feeble on the tall flat cart corral rail in zone 3 that made fellow competitors bang their boards on the coping in appreciation.  Grant Stavas put together a memorable performance with tricks like his impossible down the stairs in zone 2, a bs feeble to bs lipslide combo on the flat rail in zone 1, and a fs boardslide kickflip out on the flat rail in zone 3 that secured his 1st place podium position.  Lachlan Yarbrough was narrowly behind with his rendition of a kickflip bs 50-50 fs 180 out on the ledge in zone 1, a sw fs bigspin down the set in zone 2, and a clean bs lipslide on the tall flat rail in zone 3 for 2nd place.  Daniel Reid kept his name in the top 3 with a bs 180 nosegrind on the hubba in zone 1, a fs 180 nosegrind on the hubba in zone 2, and a bs bluntslide on the tall rail in zone 3 for a solid 3rd place finish.

The 15 - 21 Division was now primed and ready to go the extra mile.  Competitors definitely had to show up in this division based on the fact that over 70+ of their peers were gunning for the top spots along side of them.  Quick off the draw we witnessed to a sw fs kickflip over the hubba ledge in zone 2, a smith grind kickflip out on the ledge over the pyramid in zone 1, and an incredible fs boardslide on the big rail in zone 3 perking up the eyes of everyone in attendance.  Nick Lee had his own “pit crew” of water and towel management pushing him throughout his heats.  They pumped him up for a winning effort as he landed a bs kickflip over the hubba in zone 2, a fs boardslide 180 to lipslide combo on the flat ledge in zone 1, and a huge bs crooked grind down the loading dock rail in zone 3. Andre Tarasov kept things a little less traditional with tricks like his nose grab finger flip and a fast plant impossible that helped him into 2nd place overall.  Jeremy Turner traveled from Raleigh, NC to put down a stand out fs feeble down the big loading dock rail in zone 3 that helped him into the remaining 3rd place position in this highly contested division.

The 10 & Under Competitors Showing Their Skateboard Skills During Lunch

The Open/Am Division took over like the crafty veterans they are and completely shut down the park.  These guys know where to find the speed, pop, or push to get through any trick that comes to mind.  We saw an incredible gap from the pyramid to bs 5-0 grind down the stair set hubba in zone 2, a kickflip over the long pyramid in zone 1, and a ridiculous bs tailslide down the big loading dock rail in zone 3 that melted faces.  John Pankus came in hot from South Carolina to land almost every trick that he tried right away and over the bolts.  He landed a bs 180 sw 50-50 fake ollie out in zone 1, a nollie bs kickflip down the stairs in zone 2, and a bs lipslide on the big rail in zone 3 to name a few that landed him in 1st place.  Long time competitor and true gentleman Michael Manion also had the juices flowing.  He landed a lipslide 5-0 fs 180 out combo on the flat ledge in zone 1, a 360 kickflip down the set in zone 2, and a contest ending fs noseblunt on the big zone 3 rail that sent him into 2nd place.  Dalton Oklesson had the eye of the tiger with a smirk on his face throughout the day.  He had good reason to feel good as he landed a bs 50-50 360 flip out in zone 1, a ollie body varial over the hubba ledge in zone 2, and a massive bs kickflip to flat from the box ledge in zone 3 that capped off his 3rd place overall finish.

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!
