Wild In The Parks - San Sebastian, Puerto Rico 2014

Stop #2 of The Wild In The Parks pushed into the summer heat igniting San Sebastian Skatepark in Puerto Rico Saturday May 31, 2014.


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.


Jan Javier Velez Locked Into A Bs Crooked Grind And Rocking His Shades The Whole Time


Sw 50-50 On A Skinny Round Bar Can Be Tricky, But Steven Rodriguez Has The Balance Of A Cat

50 Giovanni's Pizza Pies Devoured In No Time Flat!

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.

Rain Closed Out The Day, Lots And Lots Of Rain


Until, Alexis Rivera Busted Out A Full Blown Pool Sesh That Had Everyone Stoked Again

Alexis Rivera also handed out a special "Alexis Award" that boasted a $300 Electric California Watch, a $100 Gift Card From The Room Board Shop, and a Volcom x Toy Machine LTD skate deck donated by his gracious sponsors.  Alexis is a true inspiration to the people of Puerto Rico and everyone in his community.

Our local Volcom dude, Ken ‘Skindog’ Collins, gave out shirts, stickers, coozies, pins, skates, hats, shoes and more… Psyched groms went into a frenzy over all the stuff. It was a quality time with our local surf crews, young-up and-comers to old school legends and everyone in between! Photos: Yvonne Falk SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA - September 24, 2015 Our San Luis Obispo premiere of Psychic Migrations was held at the historical Fremont Theatre and it surely did not disappoint. Two stars of the movie, Nate Tyler and Ryan Burch, were happy to make the trip to this premiere and had a ton of goodies to throw out to the crowd. One stoked grom even scored a surfboard from Nate! We are happy to report that grom safely made it out of the theatre without getting mobbed by his peers. In all, it was an excellent evening, coupled by an aesthetically-creative theatre setting and a great crew of folks.

The line wrapped around the block, filled with young grommets, teenage youth, moms and pops, and just flat out salty surfers. Hometown hero, Ryan Burch, introduced the film with Director Ryan Thomas and threw out lots of Volcom product into the rowdy crowd. A great way to end the California leg of the Psychic Migrations premiere tour.

Daniel Norton and Kelly Scroggs Earn Their Spots at Lowers During the Annual TCT Bushfish in Texas!
The Volcom Totally Crustaceous Tour’s Bushfish Surf Series went off last weekend at Bob Hall Pier in Corpus Christi, and it was nothing short of a good ole Texas time. This event is always one of our favorite venues on the whole tour. The good people of Texas always welcome the crew in with open arms and an amp level that is off the meter. This year was nothing short of the same, and we were stoked to be back in town. Corpus and Bob Hall Pier provided us with a very own swimming pool in our front yard. Friday we set up at Benjamin’s Surf n Skate for the pre-event sign up party and premier of Volcom’s new surf film Psychic Migrations. The kids and families were there fired up ready to help get the fun going. There were games, laughs, high fives, Wienerschnitzel hot dogs, and smiles all around. We signed up a bushel of competitors, gave out some free Volcom gear, then Mother Nature said “Oh Hey, Hello.”  With bolts of lightning shaking down the thunder from the sky we decided to postpone the movie until after the Bushfish contest and awards ceremony. Everyone retreated back to their humble abodes to get ready for Saturday’s contest. The surf was a little small but the crew made the best of it! Come morning time we reassembled at Bob Hall Pier with fun little waves to get the contest going, and you could already smell the BBQ cooking before the sun was even all the way up. We got the event kicked off with an amazing live performance of the Star Spangled Banner from Rob Henson and the always-impressive Ian Appling. True Texas style. Ian and TCT workhorse Rob Henson played us the greatest National Anthem I've heard in years. The surf was contestable all day and the Texas Bushfishers took full advantage. We got the event rolling with the Juniors division and the American flag speedo rocking Ian Appling ended up stealing the show for the second time that day to take home the win. The Girls division in Texas is always a highly contested group, and at the end of the day Olive Smith took home the hardware for 1st place. The Groms in Texas are no push over either, after battling it out all day Dallas Cunningham took the win, and with a name like Dallas, in Texas, it wasn’t surprising. Then there was the Squids, always the crowd favorite, and Kason Wells stole the show with a winning performance. The Pro guys were up next, true Texan and local ripper Daniel Norton ran the table here and was rewarded with $500 worth of biscuits and another one of the spots filled for the TCT Global Championships at Lower Trestles! Bubba Gainnon smoother then Texas Toast! Texas is a unique place and for that we run one extra division true only to the region, we call it the Round Up. These guys are great and compete like no other. At the end of the day well established and known Texas ripper Morgan Faulkner stole the show and took home $250 for his efforts. I'm concerned for those hand prints? When it was all said and done we had another great Bushfish event and moved upstairs to the pier restaurant, Mikel Mays Beach Side Bar & Grill, where they invited us in for our awards ceremony, and to show the much-anticipated premier of Psychic Migrations. Needless to say there was hoots, hollers, and yew’s a plenty! Thank you so much from all of us at the Volcom TCT to everyone that made this event possible once again. We may be on to the next stop but keep the brisket and biscuits warm for us Texas, we can’t wait to come back!!! Morgan Faulkner has competed in almost every single Bushfish and has taken home a pretty penny with a handful of wins. Kids enjoying the Pool. Kelly Scroggs is going to Lower Trestles! He Is one of the first four Pro-Am to be qualified. There is that darn Texas Unicorn again! Squids was the biggest division of the day with 36 little dudes and dudetts looking for their Lowers glory! The winners of the largest division of the day! Your Watermelon award winner! This young lady did not stop all day! Morgan and the young Watermelon victor Grace show off the winnings! Daniel Norton is just a good ole boy from Texas, no Instagram, no Facebook, no nothing! Hopefully we can find him for Lowers Kids getting excited for the awards! Bubba Gainon staying busy out there. The winners and all their amazing prizes! Ian Appling talented beyond his year in and out of the water.
