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.

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!

Slasher Film Countdown
It's Friday the 13th, guys. You know what that means? It means it's time for a SLASHER FILM COUNTDOWN! Squad up, grab some popcorn, turn off the lights and pop in some seriously scary movies. You'll probably be too frightened to be by yourself for the rest of the night so it's best to turn this hangout into a sleepover sesh. If you're not sure which movies to watch, take some time to read our list of 5 must-see slasher films. 1. Halloween - 1978 The one that started it all. Released in 1978 and directed by John Carpenter, Halloween proved that with barely a budget, and some serious suspense, you could make a fortune at the box office. The next 10 years saw countless rip-offs (and it's own sub-par sequels) but none could replicate the frights and thrills of the true classic. 2. Friday the 13th - 1980 A bunch of teens getting frisky when there not suppose to? Someone starts picking them off one by one? If Halloween opened the door for the slasher genre, Friday The 13th proved it wasn't going away anytime soon. The deaths got more gruesome and audiences seem to love it. Although Jason Voorhees and his hockey mask aren't actually in this one (we won't spoil the real killer here) the iconic villain would arrive in it's 2nd installment and star in over 10 more sequels and spin offs making him the most lucrative bad guy of all time. 3. A Nightmare on Elm Street - 1984 From the other master of 80's horror, Wes Craven, came this 1984 game changer. The concept was brilliant and we were introduced to, arguably, the most well known horror baddie of all time, Freddy Krueger. A Nightmare On Elm Street did for falling asleep what Jaws did for going in the water. 4. Scream - 1996 After a good decade and half of cheap sequels and lost interest from audiences, the slasher genre was wearing thin. Horror master Wes Craven returned to breathe new life into it with 1996's self-referential and wildly entertaining Scream. By playing into the genre's gimmicks and stereotypes, but also twisting it on it's head, Scream ushered in the second wave of the slasher phenomenon in the late 90's and early 2000's and launched the careers of many future stars. 5. It Follows - 2015 The newest film on the list by nearly 20 years, It Follows is a welcomed addition the the genre's legacy. It looks back the genre's classics as inspiration but offers new and unique ideas for our time. It's a bit of everything all rolled into one and still remains completely original. It uses edge of your seat suspense and suggested horror over cheap gross out violence. You won't get this one out of your head easily. Pair our Smokin' Haute Dress with a Jason mask and you're all set to go for the night ;)
