The Park Has A Little Something For Everyone

San Sebastian Skatepark is nestled into a brand new community center in the city of San Sebastian. The complex boasts things like a zip line, in-door basketball courts, tennis courts, and of course the brand new skatepark that takes center stage.  The skatepark contains a solid array of features that keep the skate rats coming back for more. Standout features include the 2 bowls, an A-frame rail, multiple ledges, and a gnarly 9-stair section to make your legs quiver. This park’s solid nature was sure to entice competitors from near and far to test their mental and physical fortitude. The time had now come to see who would accept the challenge and reign supreme.

The 10 & Under And Girls Competitors Ready To Get The Day Going

Grabs, Drop Ins, And High Fashion Setting The Tone

The 14 & Under Division grabbed their skates and gathered around our MC Fico handing out a couple high fives before these rippers started to stir the pot.  These young guns pulled out the heavy artillery with a massive fs 180 down the 9 set in zone 1, fs boardslides on the A-frame in zone 2, and a variety of combo variations in the tech section of zone 3. 11-year-old Jomar Ortiz-Garcia has been a long time WITP competitor working himself up the ranks throughout the years.  With the help of a little self prayer, Jomar boosted a perfect kickflip down the 9 set in zone 1 helping him to claim 1st place in the division.  Right behind him, 9-year-old Carlos “Goldo” Puigdollers popped his tricks like a man getting everyone’s attention as he took home 2nd place.  Yariel Caban kept up with the pack running through the obstacles and capturing the remaining spot in the top 3.  Everyone in the division was on fire and the crowd let them know they were stoked the entire way.

The 15 – 21 Division was next to put down a no holds barred performance. Things started nice and friendly with a display of technical tenacity on the A-frame rail in zone 2 and the ledges in zone 3.  We saw a solid bs tailside pop out, a bs feeble up to 50-50 combo on the A-Frame, and a bs 180 nosegrind to name a few hammers in these sections.  The boys then converged on the big section that includes the massive 9 set down rail…did we mention that this rail has an over hip high exit and a small kink at the end? This did not faze these guys as we saw a solid bag of tricks including a bs feeble on the rail, fs boardslide on the rail, and a heelflip down the set for those taking notes.  Ariel Rios had the goods and impressed the judges to get 1st, Steven Rodriguez kept things tight to take 2nd, and Hector Ortiz once again found himself on another WITP podium with a 3rd place finish.

The Open Division was ready to strike the park and get the crowd roaring. The spectators on hand gathered around feverishly anticipating what was going to happen in front of their very eyes.  Without disappointment the Open constituents dominated the zones with speedy fs bluntslides across the ledges in zone 3, kickflip fs boardslids on the A-frame, and a ridiculous hardflip down the 9 stair that had people going bananas.   As time went on, Fito Dumeng pulled away from the pack ending his day with a fs feeble and fs bluntslide to fakie down the 9 rail to push his scores above the rest of the pack.  Jose Angel Colon cracked the top 3 with a solid performance that included a board breaking, but landed, fs salad down the rail for 2nd place.  Mike Alvarez came to show he knows the ins and outs of his hometown park by landing a very clean and impressive 360 flip down the 9 that contributed to his 3rd place position in the end.

From The Beach To The Country, Nate Tyler in "To The Land"
Besides doing massive frontside airs with his long blond trademark locks, and working on helping produce his own video edits (like this one), Nate Tyler keeps relatively quiet at his home in Central California with an array of things to keep him busy. With a large piece of land occupied by farm animals, solar energy, and a flourishing nature presence, Nate lives off his land as much as he can. A sort of hippy-living surfer if you will. "To The Land" tracks Nate surfing near his home, near his life, near his land.   Also check out Nate Tyler's recent trip to Costa Rica w/ the rest of the Volcom Surf team!

Volcom X Anti-Hero Collection
Volcom team rider and Anti-Hero pro skater Grant Taylor calls this collaboration “ a no brainer.” His teammate on both brands, Chris Pfanner agrees: “ These two companies are well known for their love for the open road and venturing into the unknown, so it just makes sense that they combine their experience to put out solid gear that can withstand the miles we cover on our adventures.” And so the process began, to create a collection of co-branded Volcom X Anti-Hero apparel and accessories true to this ideal. With the plan in place and the Anti-Hero crew on board, Grant and Pfanner started feeding their input and ideas to the Volcom design team. You should know that Anti-Hero is a skateboard company founded in 1995 by legendary skaters Julien Stranger and John Cardiel. Since day one, Anti-Hero has existed to offer the anti-establishment alternative, waging an affront on skate industry norms in support of 100% raw shredding. From their team to their videos to their boards graphics and ads, Anti-Hero has remained an influential force in skateboarding for twenty years. And we believe that legacy lines up perfectly with our own. With a shared vision for the desired outcome of this collection, the directives from all involved were straightforward: it was imperative that the gear be built for long-lasting abuse with understated styling that does right by the Stone and the Eagle. Pfanner again, “ I just wanted to make stuff that we really wear, to stay true to what we really back and secondly to create stuff that we can use on the road, meaning that we can pack light and won't need to wash it too much!” To hit that target, we created a collection of tough, road-worthy gear: sturdy flannels and heavy-duty stretch twill pants with anti-microbial properties engineered into the weave at the fiber level, heavy-weight hooded sweatshirts and long sleeve t-shirts and a range of proper accessories “ an essential for every road adventure with the bros!” Check out the collection below and click the images for more info!

THREE STREETS TO BERLIN
From June 27 to June 29, skaters had three days to skate three Berlin spots and post a clip of their best trick at each spot on Instagram, tagging #Volcom3Streets2Berlin. Deadline for posts was Thursday 29 June, 4pm and the 8000€ winner was announced on that day at a Boat Party right next to the Bright tradeshow. Needless to say, the new concept surprised a bit the skaters involved who had to adapt their game, with no one-minute-run stress or jam session hassle, but also no one on their back to get the tricks done, to post before deadline, not get caught inside of the endless free beer parties, improvising themselves filmers for their buddies or struggling to find some Wifi or a power socket… In the end Eniz Fazliov took the win after an hectic day of skateboarding (rushing to the last spot before deadline), and the celebration party on the Volcom boat that followed is in the books. The spots saw plenty new tricks and some good friendly sessions went down, check out the top clips that were posted below, special mention to Andy Welther, Kris Vile, Karsten Kleppan, Jarne Verbruggen, Phil Zwijsen, Jelle Maatman, Daniel Spängs, Nils Ingemarsson, Bart Buikman and all the other skaters that entered ! Photographer Dennis Mac Grath was in town and wrote some lines about him documenting the three days « contest », enjoy his photos below : Flashbacks to the Life I’ve Lived Spending the Summer in Europe has always been a treat for American skaters. Whether it be traveling around to contests or in my case 13-14 years ago (yeah I’m old) it was living in Barcelona and sometimes not just for the Summer months.... This year I decided to come to Berlin, on a whim. I was moving out of my house in Los Angeles and a friend of mine offered me his flat here for a few months since LA life was starting to drag me down a bit. Once I arrived I connected with some people and was asked to document a free- form skate contest called Three Streets to Berlin. My career (if you can call it that) shooting skate photos lasted from 1995-2005 although I still work in and around the skateboarding world quite a bit....these days I am more focused on documentary projects, etc so it was a pleasure to get to document skaters once again for a few days out skating in the streets. I still skate a lot but don’t have my camera with me as much as I used to when out skating and I mostly skate with my old fart friends back home so I’m not around the kids much anymore. All I can say is things haven’t changed much other than the level of skating....skateboarders are the realest, rawest individuals I’ve ever known and I am so glad to have been apart of this culture for the past 30 years. All I can say is I met some cool ass talented kids this week. Skateboarders rule the world.... Thanks to Julien and Bemo at BLAM, Volcom, and especially Lucas Fiederling for bringing me out in the streets for the past 3 days. Please enjoy.... - Dennis McGrath Volkspark "the tit" session in full swing.... Patrick Rogalski Neu National Galerie "ledge to drop" Eniz Fazliov and Denny Pham In the mix...

"I Nearly Drowned From One Of The Waves In This Video" -Parker Coffin
Parker Coffin, straight outta Santa Barbara, CA, has been as busy as a presidential campaign manager these past couple months. He just released a stellar edit (watch above), has been actively training for his Championship Tour campaign, and is prepping for the US Open in Huntington Beach next week. In short, we've missed Parker, so we caught up with him recently to talk about this new edit, see where his head's at, and find out what the rest of 2016 has in store for him. How long you been riding for the Volcom family? I believe it's coming up on about nine years this January. What is Young Wise Tails? Youngwisetails.com is a website that my brother and I started to basically be a platform for what we liked and it slowly has transitioned from a blog into a production company. Now we make surf videos and use our website to promote them. When did you start filming for this new edit and where’d ya go? This particular video is actually left over footage from Volcom's surf movie Psychic Migrations. The footage in here is from Indonesia, Hawaii, and Mexico. Why did you decide to add the mirrored bonus section in this edit? I have always switched around my favorite surfers that were regularfoots to make them goofyfoots, so I could understand the way that they surfed in a way that was more relatable for me. I thought that it would be cool to release a part that was me as a regularfoot for the same reason, so some regularfoot kid could watch me surf and relate to it more. Any good stories from any of the trips? Well, I nearly drowned from one of the waves in this video. It was at a wave called Kandui in Indonesia and I jumped off and got sucked over the falls and landed on the reef head first and blacked out. It was, to this day, the scariest experience of my life. I'm very lucky to still be here and every time I watch that one wave I remember just how lucky I am. The wave: What’s upcoming for young Mr. Parker Coffin? I'm gonna put my head down and get on the WCT. I'm still trying to find my feet on the WQS as this is my first full year, but I want on that tour really badly and that's my only focus these days. It's a lot of work and a really big goal but that's what I want. What’s your favorite Volcom product? Where I live is a little on the colder side, so I love my Volcom jeans. The all black Vorta jeans are the shit!   *Check out our all-new Volcom Stone Made Jeans and Chinos, available now at volcom.com/vsm   Watch Parker in our new Welcome To Water Episode 3 edit: More Welcome To Water episodes Episode 1 Episode 2   Parker Coffin: @parkercoffin Volcom Surf: @volcomsurf Volcom: @volcom
