Volcom Super Collider Returns to Fun Fun Fun Fest
Volcom and Fun Fun Fun Fest are proud to announce that with the help of local ramp builder, Ryan Corrigan of HOLDONHEREWEGO and the Austin-based nonprofit, Project Loop, we will again lead the charge in building the Volcom Super Collider for the FFF Fest skate event this year. The super ramp, designed by legendary skateboarder Remy Stratton, debuted last year to rave reviews from athletes and spectators alike and has now become an integral part of the action-sports experience at FFF Fest. "The supercollider, like a music stage, is also fun to look at even when no one’s on it. And then, there is that moment when the team jumps on deck with their boards in hand and the skate session explodes into some of the nastiest shredding ever, combined with the Fun Fun Fun Festival sights and sounds all around, I just can’t wipe the smile off my face," says Volcom VP of Skateboarding Remy Stratton. Volcom will also welcome back its renowned skate team for a series of demos throughout the Festival weekend. This years lineup includes: • Axel Cruysberghs • Ben Raemers • Caswell Berry • Chris Pfanner • CJ Collins • Collin Provost • David Gonzalez • Dustin Dollin • Grant Taylor • Louie Lopez • Ryan Sheckler • Rune Glifberg Tickets for the 10 annual Fun Fun Fun Fest set to take place November 6-8 in Austin, TX are now available at funfunfunfest.com and check out last years action from Fun Fun Fun Fest

Stop #6 of Volcom’s Wild in the Parks – Legacy Skatepark - Ottawa, ON Canada
Before the contest we went to the Legacy Skatepark with Collin Provost, Daan van der Linden, Grant Taylor and Arto Saari. Stop #6 of Volcom’s Wild In The Parks tour pushed north of the boarder to Canada’s Legacy Skatepark in Ottawa, ON on Saturday August 8, 2015. Legacy skatepark is a 15-minute drive from the downtown sector of Canada’s capital city of Ottawa. The park’s rad history and grunge feel is something that cannot be replicated. The freewheeling spirit of that park allows a sense of “anarchy” back into skateboarding, which sometimes gets lost. Above all else, this is a super fun spot to rip and the locals do just that. On any given day you will see tranny guys blasting, tech guys melting minds, or even the occasional “large guy” game of skate. All these antics made for another impactful Wild In The Parks with our Canadian brethren. This frontside boardslide in the 14 & Under Division prelims was the first one Ben Pearson ever landed on the rail. Ben then made good on a promise to shuv out in finals later that day. Bailey Seager took 1st in the 14 & Under Division with tricks like this crook to backlip in zone 3. Taking home 1st in the 15-21 Division, Matt Racine slid this front blunt down the rail with ease. Brandon Brilliant finished 7th in the 15-21 Division with tricks like this crowd pleasing back tail down the hubba. Placing 2nd in the 15-21 Division, Nico Labbé pulled this back lip shove 2nd try in finals. Caswell's Choice, Kirk Roach, kept it calm and collected during the contest. He made this clean kickflip on the double set in prelims and landed a 6th place finish in the 15-21 Division. Earning himself 3rd in the Open/AM Division, Nolan Saumure pulled this coast-to-coast nose manual nollie flip out no more than 1 minute into finals. Local ripper and the skate teams guide through Ottawa, Mitch Barrette, killed it with this salad grind across and down to place 4th in the Open/AM Division. Riley Cronin dropped this laser flip banger on the double set and placed 5th in the Open/AM Division. Jayden Bono was ripping all day with killer tricks like this 180 switch crook to regs down the rail. He took home 2nd in the Open/AM Division. Jamie Bennett took the top spot for the Open/AM Division with a grip of tech tricks. He battled this full cab flip down the double set in prelims and proved he could get it again during finals.

Stop #5 of Volcom’s Wild in the Parks – Grant Park Skatepark - Chicago, IL
Prior to the contest we rolled through Grant Skatepark in Chicago pretty late with Alec Majerus, Axel Cruysberghs and Alex Midler to show the zones! Check back tomorrow for the recap. Stop #5 of Volcom’s Wild In The Parks tour hit the famed Grant Park Skatepark in Chicago on Saturday July 25, 2015. Grant Park is a massive city park that spans a vast majority of Chicago’s metropolis area.  Last December the city council and the Grant Park Conservancy’s efforts to bring a world-class skateboard facility to downtown Chicago came to fruition.   The skatepark is huge with limitless variety of obstacles to keep the good times rolling on and on.  The park was a perfect fit to host the 1st Wild In The Parks in Chicago and skaters from all over the Midwest brought the fire to set it off. The 14 & Under Division was no joke and this frontside tailslide on the 8 stair rail by Cole Hosman was just one of the many tricks that earned him 1st in the division. Giovanni Alvarez killed it all day and earned his way into 2nd in the 14 & Under Division. Perfectly level back tail in zone 3. Ty Stigney cruised down from Minnesota with his homies. He took home 1st in the 15 - 21 division with impressive hammers like this kickflip crook. Austin Bland took 4th in the 15 - 21 Division. Bluntslide on the 8 stair in zone 1. Chase Domeier back smith 180 out in zone 3. He earned himself 6th in the 15 -21 Division. Taking home 1st in the Open/Am Division Cole Wayka consistantly landed bangers in all three zones. This 360 flip lipslide in Zone 2 was no exception. No stranger to the contest series, Tanner VanVark came in hot stomping all sorts of tricks like this 180 switch nosegrind to fakie in zone 1. He earned himself 2nd in the Open/Am Division Taking home 3rd in the Open/Am Division, Marcus Sarsycki did this frontside feeble 180 out on the A-frame. Brad Hay was another competitor that came down from Minnesota and ended up getting 5th in the Open/Am Division. Back 180 nosegrind to regular in zone 1. Joe Milazzo didn't place in the contest but did kill it hitting everything with speed and style. This back tail shove out on the bank to ledge in zone 2 was one of the many tricks that impressed Caswell enough to throw him in the van the next day! Results: 14 & Under Division: 1st: Cole Hosman 2nd: Giovanni Alvarez 3rd: Jasper Hrusovsky 4th: Lawsen Miller 5th: Nolan Kaiser 6th: Sean Robertson 7th: Rashaad Wells 15 – 21 Division: 1st: Ty Stigney 2nd: Andrew Glaspy 3rd: Benny Milam 4th: Austin Bland 5th: Matt Demaster 6th: Chase Domeier 7th: Henry Wollever Open/AM Division: 1st: Cole Wayka - $250 2nd: Tanner VanVark - $150 3rd: Marcus Sarsycki - $100 4th: Malik Jones 5th: Brad Hay 6th: Greyson Beal 7th: Brad Bedolla Caswell's Choice – presented by The Skateboard Mag:  Caswell Berry will award his favorite competitor from each stop of the 2015 Wild in the Parks tour to jump in the van with the Volcom team and shoot a photo to be featured in The Skateboard Mag with the footage to be featured on The Berrics!

Stop #4 of Volcom’s Wild in the Parks – Mayfair Skatepark / "Red Park" San Jose, CA
As always, the van rolled into San Jose the day before to feel out the park and show the zones. This stop we had Milton Martinez and Axel Cruysberghs show the zones with a cameo from San Jose local Peter Raffin! Stop #4 of Volcom’s Wild In The Parks brought the heat to east San Jose, CA at Mayfair Skatepark on Saturday July 11, 2015. San Jose has always been a hot spot for skateboarding, especially since the inception of the Tiltmode Army back in the early 2000’s. It was fitting for us to make a stop here since Volcom’s Caswell Berry, a Tiltmode Army aficionado, calls San Jose home. Caswell has been at every WITP stop searching for talented skateboarders to jump in the van with the Volcom team after each event. His history along with the rest of the Volcom team pushed a highly talented group of skaters to put down a memorable performance. Luis Perez made this frontside flip down the 7 look easy. He earned 2nd place in the 14 & Under Division. Eddie Gonzalez perfectly executed this backside nosegrind on the hubba in the 14 & Under Division. Driving out with his family all the way from Arizona, Austin Salzman earned sixth place in the 15-21 Division with rad tricks like this perfect hardflip down the 7 stair. Andrew Lopez 360 flip in zone 1, earning his way into third place of the 15-21 Division. Gio Georgallis got creative in zone 2 with this kickflip foot plant on the rail during the Open/Am Division. An injured arm couldn't stop Adam Emery from ripping. This smith down the hubba helped him take 6th in the Open/Am Division. There were only a few to hop on or over the rail in zone 3. Dylan Hilton popped up to 50-50 flat and down. He took home 2nd in the Open/Am Division. Walking away with 3rd in the Open/Am Division, Jesse Perez also took this massive heelflip over the pyramid to flat. Taking first place in the Open/Am Division, PA to CA transplant Mike Berdis slept in the skatepark with his homies the night before the contest. He killed the zones with a barrage of technical tricks like this big spin front blunt. Not only did Pero Simic take home fourth in the 15-21 Division on his 18th birthday, he was also "Caswell's Choice" and got to hop in the van with the team the next day. Tailslide on the rail in zone 3. Results: 14 & Under Division: 1st: Dylan Sullivan 2nd: Luis Perez 3rd: Kevin Castillo 4th: Victor Alcazar 5th: Eddy Gonzalez 6th: Taj Falconer 7th: Axel Vargas 15 – 21 Division: 1st: Alex Chung 2nd: Jake Kottke 3rd: Andrew Lopez 4th: Pero Simic 5th: Isaiah Gohan Estrada 6th: Austin Salzman 7th: Saul Lopez Open/AM Division: 1st: Mike Berdis - $250 2nd: Dylan Hilton - $150 3rd: Jesse Perez - $100 4th: Angel Ortega 5th: Brandon Reboja 6th: Adam Emery 7th: Gio Georgallis Caswell's Choice – presented by The Skateboard Mag: Caswell Berry will award his favorite competitor from each stop of the 2015 Wild in the Parks tour to jump in the van with the Volcom team and shoot a photo to be featured in The Skateboard Mag with the footage to be featured on The Berrics!
