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 2: The High Curbs "Empty Bottles" | Volcom Cyber Singles Club
The High Curbs hit the Volcom Studio to record a brand new song for the Cyber Singles Club. Entitled "Empty Bottles", the song's about being on tour and is a full blast of garage-punk rock and roll that shows why the band are ready to hit the road every chance they get.
New Future
Shaping Sustainable Surfboards with Volcom, Entropy Resins, and Shaper Studios
Words by Entropy Resins’ Adam Fischer IDEA The idea of creating Mindful Makings came about from The Underswell’s Derek Sabori and me sitting down and talking about sustainability and how we can help spread the message, especially in the surf industry. During this time, Volcom was hosting the 2016 TCT Global Champs at Trestles and Nate Peracciny, Volcom's sustainability filmmaker, was there producing a True To Trestles series for the event. Derek sat down with Nate and told him the idea of producing a short film about making an eco-friendly surfboard with Entropy products. I had already been building a relationship with Chris and Trevor over at Shaper Studios, so it made perfect sense to wrangle everyone together to see how we could possibly make today’s most sustainable surfboard. PREP Derek wrangled Volcom’s EVP of Marketing Ryan Immegart to take place in the shaping, and organized Nathan Peracciny and Kyle Toth to shoot and edit the footage. I put in some calls to Marko Foam to donate a couple of Recycled EPS Blanks, along with JPS cloth to donate the fiberglass, and we at Entropy Resins threw in whatever resin was needed for the project. And the rad thing is, Shaper Studios was previously using a standard epoxy resin, so this was a great trial run for them to sample out some sustainable Entropy Resins and really put it to the test (which they loved and are now exclusively using Entropy Resins for all their production and classes). So, there it was, everyone was in and we were ready to shape some sustainable boards! PROCESS We all met down in San Diego at Shaper Studios one afternoon and got started. After I gave the guys a quick overview of the benefits of Entropy Resins, Chris and Trevor jumped in and got Derek and Ryan right into the process, who were the two guys shaping boards. First, they had to decide what style of boards they wanted to shape and pick out the appropriate templates to create the base outline on the blank. Then, Derek and Ryan were methodically guided step-by-step (allowing Derek and Ryan to do 98% of the work) to their finished-shaped boards. Next step was getting them into the glassing room to begin the lamination. While the boys were very hands-on with their creation from the beginning, Chris and Trevor guided them in the right direction and were there to help them along the way. Once the lamination was done, all that was left to do was to wait for the boards to be fully cured, and meet up for a surf to test out their creations. The result? Two fully-customized and sustainable-friendly surfboards which both Derek and Ryan are extremely proud of.   The Takeaways: 1. Seeing truly how much work goes into building a sustainable surfboard, this gave both Derek and Ryan a new perspective and appreciation for the craftsmen who do this for a profession. While the prices of these environmentally-friendly surfboards typically have a higher price point than your standard polyester board (given the work involved and cost of materials), they are longer-lasting and safer for the environment. Healthy ingredients for a New Future! 2. Knowing what you created and what you're using is a sustainable product. There are alternative materials available to tons of different industries that can not only bring a more sustainable solution to manufacturing products, but can also outperform the standard materials currently used in the market. Speaking to the surf industry, this can be applied from manufacturing surfboards, clothing, and hard goods to operating retail spaces, events, and businesses, for example. 3. There is something special about paddling out and catching waves on your own creation. Every detail, every line, every ounce of material under your feet was meticulously placed and is ridden with pride. When you take your surfboard from concept to completion, and are apart of the journey in every step of the way, the appreciation level is unparalleled to any other board you have ever surfed. Photos by Nate Peracciny Obligatory beers after a hard day of shaping at Shaper Studios with the crew. Ryan measuring twice before he cuts under the watchful eye of Chris Clark, founding partner at Shaper Studios. What Mindful Makings means to me is to be aware of your impact on the greater cycle of life, then apply that awareness to make better decisions on how you create and consume. -Ryan Immegart, EVP of Global Marketing at Volcom Once you shape it yourself, you’ll never look at curves the same. Learn your fractions, kids, you’ll need ‘em! Derek learning the ropes from Trevor Wells, marketing manager at Shaper Studios. Surfing with my custom ecoboard from Shaper Studios is like driving a hybrid or electric car, it is a great conversation starter about sustainable products in surfing. People are like, “Oh cool, gosh your car is so quiet. Yeah, I’ve been thinking about getting one.” It’s the same philosophy with these boards. -Derek Sabori, Founder of The Underswell Lighting is your guide, highlighting and accentuating your board’s curves. The finished products! Ready for their maiden voyage. The anticipation was killing the guys, but obviously waxing is a must. Enjoying the feeling of dropping in on a self-shaped board. There's nothing like it! We'd like to thank everyone involved in the project! Derek Sabori from The Underswell, Ryan Immegart from Volcom, Chris Clark and Trevor Wells from Shaper Studios, Nathan Peracciny and Kyle Toth for helping to tell the story with their camera and editing wizardry, Matt Shuster for last minute surf sesh documentation, Ty Peterson from Marko Foam for the blanks, Torrey Utterback from JPS composites for the fiberglass, and Entropy Resins for allowing me to work for an unbelievable company, pushing the boundaries of sustainable composites and resins.   LEARN MORE: Volcom Sustainability Entropy Resins Shaper Studios

Sustainability at the Volcom Pipe Pro
We are proud to announce that for the past five years, the Volcom Pipe Pro on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii, has been certified a Deep Blue Surfing Event! This means we have ran a more “Ocean Friendly” event that sets a clear path for reducing environmental and community impacts of a professional surfing contest. The sustainability report is a transparent description of the sustainability performance of the event, and includes measured data, photos and videos, and suggestions for improvement. Deep Blue Surfing Events address impacts directly related to the local contest area, including waste reduction, protection of natural resources, and the building of stronger communities. They also reduce direct threats to the global sport of surfing itself, such as: sea level rise, ocean acidification, and the loss of the world’s living coral reefs, which leading scientific institutions warn are already harming our oceans, waves and beaches. To receive a Deep Blue Surfing Event designation, an event is required to reduce environmental and social impacts of the event, and develop a data collection plan to measure performance on impact reduction. This data must show that it has met minimum goals for at least two of the five major categories of environmental and social impacts, and the 2017 Volcom Pipe Pro has exceeded the minimum requirements of all five categories measured! Sustainability Performance Summary Waste Diversion: 66% of waste diverted from landfill   Renewable Energy: Contest powered by 100% renewable biodiesel fuel and solar electricity   Climate Change: 100% of CO2 footprint mitigated   Community Support: Supported local community organizations with more than $100,000 in donations   Transportation: Promoted alternative transportation for athletes, staff, and spectators The 2017 Volcom Pipe Pro has exceeded the minimum goal for Waste Diversion with a total diversion ratio of 66%. We have shown a strong commitment to waste diversion, maintaining a high ratio of waste diversion as per previous years. 2017 saw a decrease in the total waste diversion throughout the event (down from 74% in 2016). Also noteworthy was that the total volume of waste produced was up significantly from 1,365 lbs to 3,559 lbs. *Full report on Waste @ the Volcom Pipe Pro The 2017 Volcom Pipe Pro has exceeded the minimum goal for sourcing Renewable Energy by sourcing bio-diesel for renewable energy used to power the event and webcast, and powering two of the event HQ houses with solar energy. The VPP sourced B100 biodiesel from Pacific Biodiesel, making the event the first professional surfing event in the world to use a 100% bio-derived fuel. This is the fifth year of using biodiesel to power the Viking Generators for the event and the first year the 100% bio-derived fuel has been utilized. Volcom also now has solar photovoltaic energy systems on both of the two Volcom houses in front of Pipeline. These houses form a key component of the infrastructure of the contest, with solar electric energy helping to reduce the fossil fuel energy needed for the houses. Solar panels sitting atop one of the Volcom Pipe Houses. *Full report on Energy @ the Volcom Pipe Pro The 2017 Volcom Pipe Pro has exceeded the minimum goal for Community Support by providing significant financial support and visibility for several community group partners. The event supported three charitable organizations with more than $100,000! Funds are generated by the sales of Volcom Pipe Pro merchandise at the contest and through sales of specialty items throughout the year. Supported charities included: Boys & Girls Club of Hawaii, Live Like Sion Memorial Fund, Sunset Elementary School, and Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii. Boys & Girls of Club Hawaii. Sion Milosky Memorial Fund. *Full report on Community Support @ the Volcom Pipe Pro The 2017 Volcom Pipe Pro has exceeded the minimum goal for Climate Impact through offsetting 100% of the measured CO2 footprint of the event. The total estimated footprint for the event is 359.7 tons CO2e. The event has offset 100% of these carbon emissions with verified carbon credits from the Wildlife Works Carbon Kasigau Corridor, Kenya REDD+ Project. See the registry certificate for the purchased offsets. photo: Brian Bielmann *Full report on Climate Change @ the Volcom Pipe Pro The 2017 Volcom Pipe Pro has met the minimum goal for providing greener transportation options with shuttle services for event staff, athletes, and media personnel. In partnership with the VPP, Turtle Bay Resort, a major resort on the North Shore of Hawaii, provided daily shuttles to the event. This effort reduces individual car trips, traffic congestion, and CO2 emissions. The event also promoted alternative methods of transportation such as carpooling, riding bikes, and walking.
