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.

Unsound Pro Day Two!

Day 2 of the Volcom Unsound Pro was a slam dunk! We made a 7 am call for a 10 am start, working around the high tide.  Waves were in the 2-3 Ft. range with a light onshore breeze, and the weather was beautiful with highs in the upper 70's and a large crowd in attendance.  By the time we started the first horn we already had over a thousand people on the beach cheering after every high score, the beach and boardwalk were packed!. We finished round 2 and 3 and will finish with the quarterfinals, semis, and final tomorrow.  Some highlights of the day were Kilian Garland's 9.0 and Noah Schweizer's on fire round 3 performance. Additional standouts  from the day included Benny B, Michael Dunphy, Rob Kelly, and Jairo Perez from Costa Rica all putting in solid performances.  Past event champion and local favorite Balaram Stack , and event standout Noah Schwiezer are still going strong and are both looking solid for a potential event win. Surfline Forecast is looking a little better tomorrow, with lights winds, and slightly bigger surf.  We Looking forward to finishing with a bang! We will have a 9am call on-site with a 10am start. Highlight of the day was the Spy Optics X Stoked Mentoring Expression Session. Eight inner city kids came out and got the 100% VIP Treatment. They spent a couple hours hanging out on the beach, touring the event site, getting a solid grip of Volcom Unsound event promo, spy sunglasses and meeting all the athletes in our VIP section.   We sent the kids out for an action packed 30 min expression session not to be forgotten alongside, Balaram Stack, Quincy Davis, Pat Schmidt, Noah Schweizer, Mike Gleason and Blake Jones. Other competitors joined the fun, including Cody Thomson, Jake Kelley, and Killian Garland.  Some pretty magical moments went down, and our competitors probably had more fun and felt more reward than the Stoked Mentoring kids.  It was the best part the day, and the whole beach felt the love.

Unsound Pro Day One!

Day one of the 2014 Volcom Unsound Pro kicked off Thursday, September 18th in Long Beach, NY in fine form. Tropical Storm Edouard delivered some solid head high surf with favorable conditions for most of the day. Round of 96 started promptly at 8AM with competitors from the Caribbean, Hawaii, East and West Coasts battling it out getting one step closer to the prestigious Unsound Pro Trophy and 10,000.00 prize purse. With solid surf we were able to run a full day of competition finishing the round of 96 and 3 heats of round 2. There were very few upsets with all Volcom Team riders including Noah Schweizer making their marks in round 1. Stand outs of the day were Jeremy Johnston, with his crazy airs and fluid style, posting the highest heat total of the day. Leif Engstrom earned himself the highest wave score with an 8.83 for a single full rotation frontside air reverse. Jairo Perez, Balaram Stack, Benny B, Killian Garland and Michael Dunphy were on absolute fire and will continue their campaigns over the weekend. Volcom’s Retail tent was in full effect and set up on the newly built boardwalk at Lincoln Ave. We have the official #VolcomUnsoundPro Tee’s, Hoodies, hats and MIZU x Volcom water bottles for sale during each run day of the event as well as at Unsound Surf Shop in Long Beach, NY and the Volcom Store on Broadway in NYC. Today (Friday, September 19th) is a Lay Day and with the weather and swell looking good for the next few days, we’ll be looking for a Weekend finish. We are also excited to bring the Stoked Mentoring X Spy Optic expression session to the event on Saturday where we will pair up Volcom Team Riders including Alex Gray with 12 Kids from the stoked mentoring program in NYC. The kids will compete in a 30 min surf off alongside a talented group of professional surfers for what should be a rewarding and entertaining addition to the Volcom Unsound Pro. There’s nothing but good vibes here at the Volcom Unsound Pro! Hope you can join us over the weekend!

High above L.A. with Death Valley Girls and Jennifer Herrema

Death Valley Girls are Bonnie, Rachel, Laura and Larry. Tommy is the studio dog :) They are all super easy going laid back types, so getting them in Volcom swag was a breeze. The sun was bright and hot but the beer was cold and we moved forward with the shoot like "pros". They played I shot. They drank I shot. Tommy ran around as if he were a big dog, but he probably only weighs 5 pounds. Larry decorated the walls with old girl gang posters and I played with the flash and shutter speeds while the girls organized their gear to start the jam. It was totally fun. I got my own private show and a few good pics for the road. The view was incredible…we were totally high above Los Angeles. - Jennifer Herrema Bonnie and Rachel get ready to rock.

Volcom Presents The Unsound Pro!

http://www.unsoundsurf.com/ New York’s premier surf store, is proud to announce that professional surfing is alive and well in the Empire State. UnsOund Surf Shop, New York’s premier surf store, is proud to announce that professional surfing is alive and well in the Empire State. This fall, the 2014 UnsOund Surf Pro NY presented by Volcom will storm the shores of Long Beach, Long Island, offering the same unrivaled display of postmodern shredding that’s made this event an East Coast staple for 17 years now. From September 18-21st, the hallowed beachbreak of Lincoln Blvd. will be the hottest place in the world to be for anyone who froths over solid waves, remarkable surfing and enigmatic characters. UnsOund Surf Shop co-owner and professional surf photographer Mike Nelson and longtime partner and resident ripper Dave Juan have fought tooth-and-nail to keep the UnsOund Pro alive for nearly two decades. Now, with Volcom’s support, they’ll bring some of the best surfers in the world to compete in New York during the peak of the Atlantic Hurricane Season. Past winners of this illustrious event in its many incarnations include: Volcom alumni Balaram Stack, Blake Jones and Kyle Garson; current or former WCT competitors Kolohe Andino, Danny Melhado and Timmy Reyes; current WQS scrappers Brian Toth, Keanu Asing and Jeremy Johnston; New Jersey superpowers Randy Townsend and Sam Hammer; Californian pros Dustin Ray (R.I.P.) and Tommy Acosta; Floridian veteran Asher Nolan and his hometown buddy, defending 2013 champion Ryan Briggs.” As it stands, Briggs, Nolan, Stack, Jones and Johnston are already confirmed entrants. They will be joined by former WCT veterans Ben Bourgeois and Gabe Kling, as well as talented East Coast pros Rob Kelly, Michael Dunphy and Noah Schweizer. Hawaiian pros Dylan Goodale and Kalani Robb will make the trip to Long Beach, as well. The timing couldn’t be better for local export-turned-international sensation Balaram Stack, who just signed with Volcom last year. The 21-year-old has been a treasured UnsOund teamrider since he was 9 and would like nothing more than to grab another victory right here at Lincoln Blvd. in front of his friends, family, childhood mentors and his main sponsor. To show his appreciation, Balaram will once again throw up a four-figure cash prize for whoever throws up the biggest punt in the “Balaram Stack Strong Island Big Air.” “Hell yeah, can’t wait!” Balaram exclaims. “Every year, the UnsOund Surf Pro is one of my favorite contests. Not only is it in my backyard, it’s the most fun week of the year — maybe even better than the U.S. Open of Surfing, which I thought would be impossible. It’s just a good time with great friends — pretty much all I could ask for in a contest.” The first day will ignite the “Strong Island Lifeguard Challenge,” where West End local Balaram Stack will lead an East End lifesaving team against TJ Gumiela’s West End squad in a 30-minute team-style surf-off/ jetty sprint. The winning team will receive a $500 check benefiting the local charity of their choice. In addition, longtime shop and event supporter Spy will lend their distinctly “happy” element to the event in the way of myriad festivities and attractions including retail tents, activity booths and a surf photography art show — all of which are certain to send this stoked crowd into a frenzy. And speaking of which, Spy’s “STOKED Expression Session” goes down on Saturday. This mentoring session where beach interaction and water assistance go hand-in-hand will pair a dozen kids ages 14-18 from youth-focused nonprofit STOKED with a dozen pros including Cody Thompson, Pat Schmidt, Balaram Stack, Quincy Davis and Alex Gray for a lighthearted team competition where feel-good criteria include “best soul arch” and “best maneuver.” Official “Volcom UnsOund Pro” product from hoodies to tees to hats to re-useable water bottles will also be available for purchase on site at Volcom’s retail pop-up shop, on the Lincoln Blvd. boardwalk, as well as UnsOund Surf Shop up the street and at Wednesday’s Event Kick-Off Party at the store, 4-7pm. Free food and drinks will be provided by Swingbelly’s BBQ, and Montauk Brewing Co., respectively, as partygoers will be treated to a showing of Volcom’s new movie, True To This, as well as a Volcom Surf Team Meet & Greet and a Prize Raffle from the event sponsors to benefit “The Long Beach Christmas Angel.” Other gracious sponsors include MIZU, Drop Global, Rev’d, Mamma Chia, Skull Candy, The Inn at Long Beach, Gentle Brew Coffee. In other words, if you’re craving it, it will be here at the UnsOund Surf Pro NY presented by Volcom. As for the surf, the groin-gutted beachbreaks of Long Beach are strategically positioned to go off — facing south to welcome any long-range energy that may be stirring up in the tropics this time of year, the historic peak of Hurricane Season. In other words, Long Beach is a wave magnet, a tube lab, and therefore the ideal stage for what could be the most captivating show of high-performance surfing the East Coast has seen since the first, and last, time the ASP World Tour landed here in 2011 (the Quiksilver Pro New York). In fact, given the potential this place has to blow cannonballs of spit and break surfboards like parking ordinances — the 2014 UnsOund Surf Pro NY presented by Volcom could be even more exciting.

It all comes from backyard pool skating though. La Kantera is one of the closest skatepark bowls in the world to what it feels like to ride an actual backyard pool. Being able to hold BOWL-A-RAMA in such a spot feels like we’re honouring all those who came before and created what we’re all taking part in now. Having SAlba, who won the first professional bowl competition and Brad Bowman and Eddie Elguara all dropping in just makes it that more special. Also, with such a wide international field making up the pro division we couldn’t ask for a better first year. Looking forward to seeing you all at the beach for Volcom BOWL-A-RAMA Getxo”. Says Chad Ford, Director of Frontside Events. BOWL-A-RAMA™ was born on Bondi Beach – Sydney, Australia in 2005 and is the biggest professional concrete series in the World.
