Wild In The Parks - St. Cloud Skate Plaza, MN 2014

Stop #6 of Volcom Stone’s Wild In The Parks delivered some hard knocks to the Granite City of St. Cloud Minnesota and their Skate Plaza Saturday July 19, 2014. The St. Cloud Skate Plaza was built on the premise of delivering a massive concrete platform for the youth of central MN to call home. Anyone that has had the opportunity to skate here has seen that it’s locals skate sun up to sun down each and everyday. This has lead to an explosion of new faces on the scene that are now battling the neighboring Metro area skaters for the top spots in the Midwest. The 14 & Under Division was first to take over the plaza just before the crack of 12:00 pm. These next generation rippers live in the now, not holding back for anything or anyone. Within the first opening moments of their heat we saw a nollie bs kickflip past the rock gap in zone 3, a proper kickflip to flat from the kicker in zone 2, and a super good 270 shuv-it lipslide to fakie down the double set rail in zone 1. Evan Schmitt was handling business all over the park, but notably he was working on a sizable hardflip to flat in zone 2 that had everyone crossing their fingers. Within the last 5 seconds of the heat Evan pushed through the wind to stomp his hardflip electrifying the crowd on hand and pushing him into the top spot. Ty Stigney followed his own path as he landed a body varial past the zone 1 double set, 360 flipped the rock gap in zone 3, and handled a bs bigspin to flat in zone 2 for 2nd place. Henry Gartland always puts together a solid performance with tricks like his impossible flip to flat in zone 2, kickflip over the rail and into the bank in zone 3, and a solid bs 180 nosegrind on the round rail in zone 1 capping off the top 3 in his division. 12-Year-Old Sean Robertson Sending A Kickflip Into The Flat From The Kicker In Zone 2 Henry Gartland Locks In A Bs 180 Nosegrind Down The Double Set Rail In Zone 1 Even Schmitt Caught And Landed This Hardflip To The Deep Flat In Zone 2 In The Last 5 Seconds Of The Finals The 15 - 21 Division had some heavy hitters ready to take over putting together a show for the mass of spectators on hand.  The guys really heated things up in all zones with tricks like a smith grind kickflip out on the flat ledge in zone 2, a backside 180 up the rock gap in zone 3, and a fs hurricane to regular down the double set rail in zone 1 to name a few.  Ryan LaRue had a solid game plan and stuck to it throughout his heat.  He landed a kickflip fs 5-0 on the flat ledge in zone 2, a hardflip bs 50-50 on the down hubba in zone 3, and a 360 flip lipslide on the double set rail in zone 1 to capture 1st place.  Jesse Johnson rattled off his own rendition of tricks like a high speed fs noseblunt on the flat ledge in zone 2, a 360 flip over the rock gap in zone 3, and a squared up kickflip bs lipslide down the rail in zone 1 for 2nd place honors.  Jake Braun had the jitters going into final only to shake the cobwebs off and turn it up to awesome.  He put down a fs kickflip over the rock gap in zone 3, a hardflip to flat in zone 2, and a solid bs bigspin fs boardslide down the rail in zone 1 to round out the top 3 in the division. Brad Hay Fully Locked Into This Bs Tailslide...And Threw A Bs Big Spin Out For Good Measure Jake Braun Floats A Nice Fs Kickflip Down The Rock Gap In Zone 3 Ryan LaRue Gathering A 360 Flip To Lipslide Down The Zone 1 Double Set Our BBQ Specialist, Emmet Klocker, Handing Out Some Signature WITP Style Hotdogs For A Long Line Of Hungry Competitors These 10 & Under Dudes Where Hyped To Get Their Turn As They Showed Off For The Crowd During Lunch The Open Division was now ready to put an exclamation point on the day and send it into overdrive.  There was no shortage of bangers throughout the entire division with the top spots up for grabs.  We saw a tail slapping bs bigger flip down the double set in zone 1, a massive ollie over the kicker to the flat in zone 2, and a bs kickflip over the rail in zone 3 and that was just a drop in the bucket.  Jonathan Reese was rousted out of his bed in the morning barely awake to jump in the car and get to the STC WITP.  It was a good thing that he made it because he absolutely destroyed finals.  He put down a kickflip fs boardslide shuv out down the rail in zone 1, fs feeble to fs 180 out on the rail in zone 3, and one of the biggest hardflips to flat in zone 2 right over the bolts capturing 1st place.  Corey Millett took himself and his mustache up to the top 3 by doing things like a shut down nollie heelflip bs lipslide on the rail in zone 1 to take 2nd place honors.  Tanner Van Vark continued his rein of top 3 honors with tricks like his high speed bs smith bs 180 out into the bank in zone 2 and his show stopping bs 180 fakie 5-0 to regular in zone 3 to end the day in 3rd place.

Wild In The Parks - Bellevue Skatepark, WA 2014

Stop #5 of Volcom Stone’s Wild in the parks tour scorched Bellevue Washington’s Skate Plaza on Saturday July 12, 2014. Bombing Into The Venue For The 2nd Wild In The Parks At Bellevue Skate Plaza For a second consecutive year the WITP tour took to the Skate Plaza section of Bellevue Washington’s Skatepark faculties. Over the past year the city has made some great improvements to the outdoor plaza that keeps the flow and fun at an all time high. Competitors showed up early trying to beat the heat as they warmed up in the early hours of the morning. It didn’t take long for the session to be in full effect as the riders sized up their peers to see what it would take to get into the top spots. The Crowd Was In Full Force Finding Their Spot And Sticking To It The 14 & Under Division took to their positions at high noon ready to spit some hot fire. The young riders are always great to watch as they have yet to fall into the trap of the conventional thinking skateboarder. The rules of what tricks are cool have yet to be ingrained in their minds, which leads to some interesting lines and maneuvers throughout. 14-year-old Alex Lobasyuk and has progressed ten fold over the past year’s time since his 1st place WITP performance last year. He landed a sw fs kickflip past the double set in zone 2, a hardflip over the extended 6 stair in zone 3, and a hardflip bs lipslide to regular for his first time at the end of the heat to capture a back to back win in his division. Keala Cole kept it a bit more “outside the box” with things like his boneless fs 360 over the double set for 2nd place. Saunjay Stocker had solid style. Surprising himself with a first time fs boardslide shuv-it out on the down rail in zone 1 that helped him into 3rd place for the day. Aidam Kelly Getting After A 360 Flip In Zone 2 Keala Cole Stepping Into A Boneless Bs Boardslide In Zone 1 Alex Lobasyuk Was On Fire All Afternoon Kickflipping To Backlip In Zone 1 Here The 15 -21 Division now took over the plaza making it apparent they were holding nothing back the very first moment of their heat.  We saw a bigflip fs boardslide down the rail in zone 1, a high speed fs feeble grind down the long rail in zone 3, and a 360 hardflip in zone 2…and that was only in the first minute or so of the heat.  Austin Visintainer was working hard to make things happen as he really turned it on for finals.  He made everything count with tricks like his 360 flip over the double set in zone 2 and 360 flip lipslide down the rail in zone 1 landing bolts to take home 1st place.  Tameron Eaglehorse made his way from Portland, OR to stomp a variety of dastardly deeds that included one of the cleanest bs 360 kickflips past the zone 2 double set for the 2nd place nod. Reece Clayson rounded out the top 3 with an insane technical performance over the double set including full cab kickflip, hardflip late 180 (ghetto bird), and many more throughout the zones before time expired. David Lobasyuk Showing His Whole Family Has Serious Skate Skills With A Solid Fs Over Krook Destin Watts Was In Town From Vegas Rolling The Dice With This 360 Hardflip In Zone 2 Austin Visintainer Bringing In A Perfect 360 Flip For The Days Catch In Zone 2 Senior Grill Master Clint Graham Putting On A Clinic Of BBQ Skill For All In Attendence The 10 & Under Competitors Took Over The Park For A Lunch Time Show Lots Of Cheering Happened As The Youth Put On A Demonstration The Open/AM Division put their clutch players in the game ready to swing for the fences.  When finials came upon us, this field of competitors was so stacked that anyone in the division was poised to take home the win.  Spectators were treated to a ripping performance that included a bs sugarcane to regular on the rail in zone 1, a switch hardflip past the extended 6 set in zone 3, and a super cool looking bs 5-0 to bluntslide combination on the steep pyramid in zone 2.  Canada’s Ryan Lepore infiltrated the US and delivered an unstoppable performance.  He left no stone unturned as he landed fs big heel down the double set in zone 2, a nollie kickflip boardslide down the rail in zone 1, and a bs crooked grind nollie flip out on the long rail in zone 3 to take home the title of 1st place in the Northwest.  Ben Campbell was in the thick of it with a bs 270 lipslide down the rail in zone 1, a fs 180 up the double set in zone 2, and a 360 flip 5-0 fs 180 out on the hubba ledge in zone 3 taking 2nd place for his efforts.  Bellevue’s hometown boy John Matarazzo rolled the dice with a kickflip fs nosegrind on the rail in zone 1, sw 360 flip over the double set in zone 2, and a high speed bs noseblunt on the long rail in zone 3 as he collected 3rd place.   Jimmy Humphryes Kept Things Unconventional With This Sw Boneless Fs 540 Amongst Other Tricks To Receive The Rev'd Skater Award For $100 Bobby Snowden Leaked A Top Secret Sw Hardflip Pasted The Double Set In Zone 2 Ben Sauer Can Hardflip Bs Lipslide Any Rail In His Path Utah's Shylio Sweat Killing The Game With A Bs Sugarcane To Regular In Zone 1 Bellevue's John Matarazzo Eyeing Up A Kickflip Fs Nosegrind In Zone 1 Ben Campbell Handling The Double Set The Wrong Way With A Fs 180 Up In Zone 2 Canada's Ryan Le Pore Killed It All Day Long Starting His Domination With This Casual Bs 5-0 To Bluntslide Down The Corner In Zone 1 Thank you to Joe Moorman, Josh Anderson, Rogue, Nate, and the entire crew at Bellevue Skatepark for all their WITP diligence.
