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 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.

Week 6: Hammered Satin "Upward Spiral" | Volcom Cyber Singles Club
Burger Records x Volcom present Cyber Singles Club, features music from the newest breed of Burger Records stars in the making, recorded exclusively at Volcom Studio, and will be released for free download & streaming every Monday for 20 weeks beginning April 17th. Week 6: Hammered Satin - "Upward Spiral" Grab the free download Sometimes things you’ve done in the past lead to another entirely different thing years later. Such is the case with Noah Wallace, lead singer of Hammered Satin. Formed in 2010 with Noah, Dan Sandvick (bassist), and Conor Berle (guitarist), Hammered Satin released their first cassette with Burger Records in 2012. "Sean and Lee from Burger Records had a band called Thee Makeout Party and my old band S'cool Girls played with them once in like 2005," remembers Noah. Sean adds, "We've been idolizing Hammered Satin for years in their many incarnations as the forever-young bubblegum glam pop gods of LA. First we knew them as Teachers Pet out of San Diego, and a few years later Noah blew minds with his amazing band S'Cool Girls. Now, they've evolved to their most perfect form, Hammered Satin! Signing Hammered Satin was kind of a no-brainer. We didn’t have to pitch ourselves. We were already buddies and good friends, and playing music with each other from back in the day created that natural affinity that we like to associate ourselves with." An interest in obscure records was always a common bond. Noa notes, "They’re like record collector guys. We’re all record collectors. There is a weird understanding among the record collector community if you know what I mean, so you know where the influences are coming from whereas most people don't." So where did the influence for "Upward Spiral" come from? "It's a motivational song," says Noah, "meant to inspire the listener into believing in themselves. Artists these days seem to be quite negative and down on themselves. It's like some sort of epidemic. I think of this song as an antidote to negative thinking. I first heard the phrase 'upward spiral' said by the character Jack Donaghy on the TV show 30 Rock. Thought it was funny, so I used it. And in the spirit of glam rock, it's slightly braggadocious proclaiming that you are on an 'upward spiral' rather than a downward one!" You can also own the 7" vinyl record for Upward Spiral which also includes the song Lavender Lightning Lady. Catch up on previous week's releases: Week 1: The Side Eyes "Cat Call" Week 2: The High Curbs "Empty Bottles" Week 3: VAJJ "Honey Pie" Week 4: Wyatt Blair "Pop Your Heart Out" Week 5: The Flytraps "Female of the Species" Like this?

My City - Santiago, Chile - Jesus Munoz
My City is a Volcom video series showcasing the Latin American Skate Team as they take us through their hometowns, showing us where they grew up skating and what struggles they had to overcome along the way. In this second episode we welcome 18-year-old Jesus Munoz from Santiago, Chile. Being the capital and largest city in Chile (over 5M people), Santiago doesn't offer much breathing room for skaters like Jesus, although the city is recognizing the progression of skateboarding and impact it has on its youth since it first appeared in the capital in the late 70s. In addition to the crowds, since most of the downtown area is filled with 19th century neoclassical architecture (and susceptible to earthquakes), with archaic, meandering side-streets, it's difficult to find a smooth ground and contemporary street-skating spots, although there are some hidden gems. But it's not just the skating that keeps Jesus loving Santiago, he notes the culture is great with amazing food, architecture, and music. Piccolo de Italia is frequented by Jesus and friends as a delicious restaurant, which you can easily find in all shopping centers. As for his artsier side, one of his favorite spots in the city is the Sculpture Park of Providencia, an open air museum park showcasing more than 30 renowned Chilean artists, including five award-winning sculptors. And if you're into live music, Santiago has a burgeoning rock 'n' roll scene, along with some good punk rock concerts happening downtown in the city. His favorite Chilean bands are Devil Presley, BBS Paranoicos, and Los Fiskales. Watch Episode 1 of My City with Jhancarlos Gonzalez Jesus is as hungry as they come, and everyday is an all-day-skate-day for him. Waking up at the crack of dawn every morning, Jesus ventures to the market with his mother to grab things for lunch before quickly peddling off to the legendary Bustamante Skatepark to meet up with friends. After spending a solid amount of time working on his next bag of tricks, he finishes the day skating through his city on his way back home where he's destined to stumble upon some generous street-skating venues. Jammed with pedestrians, small squares, plazas, and even subway stations offer a wide variety of city structures and people-dodging for the local skaters. Jesus Munoz (photo: Andres Navarro) Among the handful of skating spots that Jesus and his friends hit within Santiago's cityscape, are the beautiful mountains, hills, and rivers which are in very close proximity, such as the Mapocho River, Parque Forestal, and the high-towering, grandiose Andes Mountains. With a vantage point of the Andes from anywhere in the city, it's nice to know you're in arm's reach of a completely different terrain whether in the mountains or getting lost in many of the ripe vineyards along the way. Jesus says he's lucky to be surrounded by a rich culture of wines and a variety of tastes, and recommends trying Gato or Casillero del Diable which are his favorites.

Yago Dora Defeats Three World Champs at the Oi Rio Pro in Brazil!
Yago Dora, entering the 2017 Oi Rio Pro in Brazil as a wildcard, eliminated the 2013, 2014 and 2016 World Champs, Mick Fanning, Gabriel Medina, John John Florence respectively, on his way to the semifinals where he eventually fell short to another World Champ (2015) and fellow Brazilian, Adriano de Souza. After qualifying into this event by winning the contest's Trials (preliminaries), Yago had an amazing run, bagging excellent scores and huge air rotations on his way to the semis where he faced-off with Adriano. Yago was unfortunately left searching for a backup score to Adriano's impressive two-wave total as time ran out, which put Adriano into the finals where he ended up narrowly defeating Adrian Buchan. In an interesting coincidence, Adriano just happens to be staying with Yago and his father Leandro Dora, who coaches them both. Giant killer @yagodora has eliminated, @john_john_florence, @gabrielmedina & @mfanno from the #OiRioPro Yago will face World Champion @adrianodesouza in Semifinal 1.

Photographer Mike Nelson shares his favorite things about Long Beach, NY
Born and raised just across the way in nearby East Rockaway, surf and real estate photographer Mike Nelson has since lived in Long Beach, New York for the better part of a decade. From freezing beach blizzards to summer days with whales breaching, Mike has seen it all. On our recent New York City trip with Balaram Stack, Chris Pfanner and crew, we got a taste of fun in Long Beach, but wanted to know more so we decided to reach out to a long-time resident and homie for the full scoop! What makes Long Beach such a good place? Mike Nelson: Long Beach is a big city with a small town feel. Throw in the beach and NYC a short drive away, it's only dull if you want it to be. Best way to get around town in Long Beach? MN: During summer, a bike is the only way to go... In winter, a 4X4 will help you not get stuck in the snow. Recommended stop if you’re new to Long Beach? MN: I would have to recommend to stop by Unsound Surf Shop, they are loaded up with a great selection of everything surf, including all the latest and greatest from Volcom. If you're lucky you might just bump into frequent visitors Balaram Stack, Mike Gleason, Sam Hammer or other local legends. Favorite spot in Long Beach during the warmer months? MN: Favorite LB summer time spot would be any East End beach. Favorite spot to eat lunch near the beach? MN: This is a tough one, Long Beach is jam packed with great restaurants. So it depends on what I'm feeling, for example if pizza is on the menu, Gino's is the spot. BBQ then SwingBellies is the must have. If a quick sandwich is on the menu, then Brand's Deli is the go too and on those occasions that I'm on a health kick I have to hit the NY Acai truck. Favorite spot to grab a beer after a surf? MN: Best spot to hit for a cold one is The Beach House. They have like 20-30 TV's with all the major sporting events including surfing and if no sporting events are on there's always some talent to check out. Any significant changes you've noticed in Long Beach since you've been shooting it? MN: Changes in surfer? Beach go-ers? Styles? Well I've been shooting for a long time, so I've seen boardshorts that were way too short, then boardshorts that were way too long and now it's just about way too short again. The surf scene here has always been strong, but these days Long Beach is on a meteoric rise. Guys like Balaram Stack, Will Skudin and Tj Gumiela are not only taking Long Beach surfing to the next level, but the whole east coast. Do you plan on living there forever? MN: The dream would be to spend a month down in Central America or the Caribbean in the winter just to get a break from the cold, but I don't foresee moving away from here permanently, it's a great place to live. Long Beach in color. Mike's a big fan of evenings like this. Long Beach doing it's best California impression. Mike found this guy busting up a bait ball right up on the beach... Is seeing whales and other large ocean life common? MN: The past few years we have been seeing more and more whales right up on the beach. These days in the spring and fall when the water temps are right and the menhaden (whale food) are around, it's quite common to see multiple whales as well as pods of dolphins on any given day. I hope this is a good sign that our coastal waters are cleaning up and reaching an equilibrium. Fun waves in the city by the sea. Pat Schmidt is always up here surfing with Bal and frequenting local nighttime hotspots along side of Bal... Spectacular view during the end of a storm swell. One of Mike's favorite weekend spots. Mike Gleason's home of Long Branch is actually only about 15 miles from Long Beach (by boat )... The Jersey/NY connection has never been stronger anchored by Mike and Balaram. Best winter blizzard story? MN: My most memorable blizzard story, would be from Blizzard Jonas a few years back. Jonas dumped a rather large amount of snow on us overnight. I woke up at like 5am (the sun doesn't come up till about 6:45 that time of year) and spent 2 solid hours digging my car out and getting down to the beach (normally this is a 5 minute drive). I got down there and it was absolutely going off, no one around, no surfers, no humans nothing. It was a very strange sensation in such a crowded place. After about an hour, local-ripper, Joe Parrino, showed up and I finally had someone to shoot. Balaram embracing the storm. Balaram blizzard commute from his house to the surf spot. Balaram, this is pretty standard for this kid... Long Beach loves goofy footers and goofy footers love Long Beach. NYC morning glow. For more from Mike Nelson, give him a follow him on Instagram at @fullnelson_photo and check out the latest issue of Surfer Magazine (May '17) where Mike nabbed the cover shot of Balaram stuck on the lip in the moment when two waves converged into one another. Read more about that moment and the conditions that produced it on Surfer's website. No joke, that's @_balaram going sky high in the middle of the ocean and scoring the new cover of @surfer_magazine An insane capture from @fullnelson_photo #WelcomeToWater #TrueToThis A post shared by volcomsurf (@volcomsurf) on Apr 1, 2017 at 8:16am PDT
