Wild In The Parks - Southside Skatepark, TX 2014

Stop #7 of Volcom Stone’s Wild In The Parks had the masses of the Lone Star State gather under Southside Skatepark’s roof on Sunday August 3, 2014

They say “everything’s bigger in Texas.”  While we don’t know who “they” are and what they are talking about, we can only assume that the topic is about the heartland’s skateboard community.  Crews from everywhere seemed to be squeezing out of the woodwork as they created a line at registration that continued out the door.  Things heated up quickly as the practice session began to look like less of a warm up turning into a complete domination of the obstacles in front of them.  After an elongated practice, due to the shear numbers of riders, the competitors were ready to get after it and put their stamp on the 2014 WITP tour.

The 14 & Under Division was first to drop in and deliver a wallop on the zones that lay ahead.  We saw a bs 360 down the 6 stair in zone 1, a popped kickflip over the pyramid in zone 3, and a speedy bs crooked grind on the flat bar in zone 2 for a sliver of the activity in this heat.  Santino Fernandez was back from 2013 and trying to take over his division’s top honors. After a harsh body-jarring slam, Santino powered out tricks in all zones and shut down the finials with a double 360 flip over the rail in zone 1. His overall performance secured his place atop the podium. Nathan Pacheco had his own rendition of tricks like his kickflip bs lipslide on the flat bar in zone 2 and a nollie hardflip past the stairs in zone 1 that landed him in 2nd place.  Nick Aquilino kept up with the pack as he landed a bs 5-0 down the A-frame ledge in zone 3 and a solid sw bs board slide to regular on the down rail in zone 1 for the remaining 3rd place spot.

Santino Fernandez Shut Down The 14 & Under Finals With This Last Second Double 360 Kickflip Over The Rail In Zone 1

The 15 – 21 Division was stacked up to the brim as competitors had to battle through 70+ of their peers just to make it to the finals.   This division was a mad scramble of action throughout as we saw a fs bluntslide shuv-it out on the A-frame rail in zone 3, a 180 to sw overcrook on the flat bar in zone 2, and even the ever illusive 720 shuv-it down the 6 stair in zone 1.  Fan favorite Julio Cruz, was all over everything landing a bs big flip up the euro gap in zone 2, a bs 270 lipslide on the A-frame rail in zone 3, and capped off his winning performance with a nollie hardflip over the rail in zone 1 that had everyone jumping out of their seats.  Zach Godlewski was blasting through the park landing a nollie bs bigspin bs lip on the flat bar in zone 2, a sw fs bigspin down the 6 set in zone 1, and a first to him cab 270 bs lipslide to fakie on the A-frame rail in zone 3 to take 2nd place.  Maui Francis got his cheering section excited with tricks like his sw bs boardslide shiv-it out on the 6 rail and bs big spin front board on the A-frame to capture the final podium position walking away in 3rd place.

It was now time for the Open/AM Division to finish off the day by showing us that the word impossible does not exist in skateboarding. Almost any flip, spin, and grind combination was landed throughout the day’s Open/AM action.  We saw a bs bigger flip fs boardslide to fakie on the flat bar in zone 2, an absolutely perfect fs flip from the pyramid into the A-frame in zone 3, and a bs feeble to 50-50 combo on the flat down rail over the 6 stair in zone 1.  Mason Coletti has now moved into this division after his 2013 WITP 15-21 Division Global Championships win.  He made an exclamation point in the day’s action by landing a fs sugarcane to regular on the flat rail in zone 2, a bs 360 kick flip over the pyramid in zone 3, and capped off his inaugural Open/AM performance with a hard flip bs lipslide shuv-it out on the down rail in zone 1.  Needless to say that Mason took home the win on this day.  Genesis Delagarza was next on the list with tricks like his nollie noseblunt on the A-frame rail in zone 3, a nollie 360 big spin up the euro, and a contest ending full cab late back foot kickflip past the stair set in zone 1.  John Bastien rounded out the top 3 with tricks like his mollie bs big heel bs lip slide on the flat bar in zone 2 and a huge bs 360 nose grab  to flat in zone 3 to name a few of his many bangers.

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
