Volcom NYC Game of S.K.A.T.E.
Spring came a little early this year in NYC courtesy of the Volcom NYC store. With another record cold winter and snowfall amounts that had the streets covered and wet for what seems like forever having a warm dry place to skate and $1000 CASH on the line made for a packed house! Free pizza and drinks greeted everyone as last minute signups and brackets were filled. Steve Rodriguez set things off and the brackets went up on the big screen. Special guest judges Rodney Torres, Rob Campbell and Danny Supa kept the games going(and on point) as more and more kids showed up to see the skating go down. Those who were rusty quicky were weeded out and even last years winner Ash Nimer got taken out by Nate Rojas which was probably the best game of the night. Nate really had to dig deep and by the end of the game I think they were just trying tricks that neither of them had on lock. It was epic and set up the final battle between Nate Rojas and Chris Pierre Jacques for the CASH! One last game with the whole place watching and it was Chris who took Nate out with a bigger flip. Special thanks to Ray and the Volcom NYC Store staff who helped make everything run smoothly and all the came out to skate and watch. Honorable mention to the guys who almost got to the finals, Diego Fuentes and Ricky Lara for killing it all night as well.

Spitfire X Volcom Launch Party at the Vert Jungle
In celebration of the new Spitfire X Volcom collection we went out to our friend Rob Beaudoin's "Vert Jungle" in Pismo Beach, CA for a sesh on the ramp, BBQ with the bros and bands to keep the party going. We met up with our friends from Spitfire Wheels and Thrasher Magazine on a Friday and planned on camping on our friend Rob's property Friday and Saturday night. Day of the party the kids and vets got to the ramp early before most even woke up, but as soon as everyone made it out of their tents and to the ramp, it was on. Bad Shit and Ratt Black came out to play, but it was a little too loud for the neighbors. Everyone skated the ramp all day and the pig was roasted on the vert ramp. After the sesh most hung around, partied and camped before we headed out on Sunday. Check out some photos below from Joe Brook, Daniel Cabral and Chris Martinez and watch the recap video from Schmitty and P-Stone from Thrasher. You can also see more photos over on the Thrasher site.
