Stop #4 of North American WITP Tour

Wild In The Parks loaded up the van and traveled to Greenwood Skatepark in American Fork, UT for stop #4

Over the past 5 years the WITP tour has found itself in the skate rich city of American Fork, Utah. The Greenwood Skatepark has become a solid training facility for the entire Salt Lake City skate community. It is amazing to see the progression that is happening here. With each passing year the youth continues to go from the basics, to mind blowing maneuvers. Through the combination of great skateparks, dedication, and the local skate veterans paving the way for the next generation, it’s easy to see why Utah is boasting some of the best up and coming ams in the industry.

The 14 & Under Division was standing on the front lines to get the contest started. They had a mission and the objective was total destruction of all three zones that were indicated during the contest debriefing. Tanner Oliver had his orders and followed through with precision. He started things off with a bs tailslide big spin out in zone 3, then took care of zone 2 with the combination of a tre flip up the euro to smith 180 out on the end ledge, and shook the ground with a huge bs big spin down the 8 stair to receive 1st place. Marcus Helmer took 2nd wowing the judges with a tweaked out air walk down the stairs and a nosepick style nose grind on the flat ledge to name a few. Deng Tear tore though the pack with solid lipslides and grinds to find his way into 3rd.

The 15 & Over Division was the next line of defense to step into the drop zone and handle business. Trevor Mason pulled out the tools of his trade and dropped the hammer from the start. He had a plan and followed through with a fs smith kickflip out in zone 3, a fs smith 360 flip out in zone 2, and smoothed out the edges with a bs tail biggie out down the zone 1 handrail to capture 1st place. Aiden Chamberlain was hot on his heels with a bs 180 nosegrind, 360 flip down the set and a fs 5-0 to sw bs crooks locking in a 2nd place standing. Jake Johnson handled the style side of things landing a striking fs feeble bs 180 out on the down rail in zone 1 standing 3rd place as the dust cleared from the skatepark.

It was now time for the Open Division to pick up the pieces left behind and really tear though the park. Brodie Penrod had set his goal to continue domination in the Utah region. It is hard to deny his talents that were on full display as the crowd cheered him on. He started the finals off with a bs 180 kickflip nosegrind to regular, then handled a kickflip bs tail kickflip to fakie on the down rail and finished things out with a half Cab noseslide to bs tailslide kickflip to fakie just as the overtime seconds expired. Needless to say, Brodie’s video game caliber tricks landed him in 1st place for the second year in a row. Tyson Bowerbank battled to the end with a kickflip bs 5-0 fs 1, a bs smith bs 180 sw crooked to regs and a last second bs 360 big flip that had judges scratching their heads in disbelief. Tyson missed the win by only a point to receive a well deserved 2nd place. Jordan Brown followed their lead and put down a kickflip bs tailslide and took flight down the set as flicked a perfect varial heelflip to round out the Open Division’s top 3.

elooa GIRLS CAMP BALANCE – Successful start for the girls!
Last weekend 20 motivated girls came to the Kitzsteinhorn for the elooa GIRLS BALANCE CAMP presented by VOLCOM. Also present were next to the elooa crew, a yoga teacher, a professional photographer as well as a filmmaker and the pro riders Mary Luggen & Ana Rumiha. After check-in the camp started with a yoga session into the weekend. Super motivated and well equipped with new Nitro Snowboards everbody went to the glacier on Saturday. After an extensive warm up and a few runs through the resort the girls practiced freestyle basics first before a perfectly shaped snowpark was waiting. Together with the coaches and the pro girls everybody practiced intensively all day and learned new tricks. In the afternoon we went back to our hotel, the Active by Leitner ́s 4* hotel that had all lot to offer: holiday galore! After coffee and cake a one hour yoga session with Anna Kathalina followed and before dinner everyone could recover in the spa area. After a very delicious and healthy dinner the day ended with an intense video coaching for all participants. On the final Sunday all campers went back to the Snowpark Kitzsteinhorn to implement the new tips of the pros and elooa coaches directly. The weather was still kind of inconsistant but we had sunshine all day. After numerous runs and a lot of new tricks in the bag an eventful weekend came to an end. The elooa crew would like to thank all participants, the sponsors, the hotel Active by Leitner ́s and the Kitzsteinhorn for an amazing camp. We are looking forward to more elooa GIRLS CAMPS in 2017. We still have a couple of spots for our GIRLS SPLITBOARD and GIRLS BACKCOUNTRY FREERIDE CAMP available. Find more infos on www.elooa.com

The weather forecasts are firing, your crew is blowing you up, and the weekend shred getaway is dialed in! Now the serious question: what are you going to pack?! Some of the biggest things that can make or break that perfect day of shredding is how you prepare for the conditions and a little knowledge into what to expect. As we all know, you aren’t going to last long nuking pow day showing up to the chairlift in just a hoodie, or getting stuck sweating it out in that heavy down jacket during warm spring conditions. Making good outerwear decisions is crucial! So, to help you out, we had a few of the Volcom Snow team riders breakdown their favorite gear to wear during their hometown weekend shred sessions! "If you were to take a trip to Les 2 Alpes in December, you know you could encounter some of the coldest days of the winter and hopefully big snow falls. The bottom of the resort is at 1600 meters and rises up to 3200 meters where some of the best off-post runs are already in good conditions. To make sure I spend a long day out, I usually pick a combo of Gore-Tex Overall and Jacket. Also, the best option if you want to go straight from the snow to the après ski is dry underwear!" - Arthur Longo Shop Arthur's Winter Weekend Essentials Stone GORE-TEX® Jacket Rain GORE-TEX® Overall Base Layer Crew Base Layer Pant SFD Powder Mitt Sweep Lined Beanie More Winter Weekend Essentials Scott Blum Bryan Iguchi Pat Moore Arthur Longo Elena Hight Marcus Kleveland Shop All Snow Outerwear

# VolcomRepublique Celebration!
    Last Saturday our boys Axel Cruysberghs and Victor Pellegrin cruised to Place de La Republique in Paris with a good portion of the scene, from the local kids to national heavy hitters such as Charles Collet, Joseph Garbaccio, Ben Garcia and more. The purpose was to celebrate the return of the Volcom granite skate setup in the heart of the French capital. The sun was shining - a perfect to start the afternoon which led to a fun and busy skate session in between the regular Republique weekend folks such as activists demonstrating about Cote–D’Ivoire new government (with a solid PA blasting african rhythms) or the "Nuit Debout" activists... A bunch of tricks got landed, high fives exchanged, and some giveaways were flown to the kids, and it was time to move to the Fluctuat Nec Mergitur cafe, right in the middle of the plaza for some after session beers, music and to announce the results of #VolcomRepublique best line skate contest. Tons of prizes got awarded to some of the many entrants and top 3 got to split the 1500€ prize purse of the contest. The judge panel consisting of David ‘Tura’ Turakiewicz (A Propos Magazine), Fred ‘D’ Demard (Soma skate medicine) and Christian Vankelst (Volcom Team manager) had a tough job picking the winners and in the end Joseph Garbaccio from Le Havre took the win (and the biggest check). Good times! Check the photos and the winning entries below (all photos by Vincent Coupeau) 1st place : Joseph Garbaccio (1000€) 2nd place : Benjamin Garcia (300€) 3rd place : Jonathan Jean-Philippe (200€) Axel fs flip the session was on in the afternoon #volcomrepublique winners Jonathan Jean-Philippe, Benjamin Garcia and Joseph Garbaccio CHECK OUT ALL  #VOLCOMREPUBLIQUE VIDEOS ENTRIES HERE celebration time gearing up Joseph Garbaccio hardflip Axel Cruysberghs bs180 sw five o party on with Vincent Perrin Volcom Jeans and Chinos raffle!

Glaciers opening meat and greet tour!
The Volcom gang was beyond ready for the snow season to start. So they embarked on a 4 stop mission to Glacier openings in the area with some simple goals; shred and get together with all our snowboarding friends and share some good times. Gang Partnering with long time friends Go-Shred, they started with Hintertux on October 1st, following with Kaunertal on October 8, Kitzsteinhorn on the next day then finishing up with Stubai on October 22, setting up on the parking lots with games, music and free BBQs with refreshments after each session to extend the the stoke of the first rides. We met Gigi in STUBAI Hintertux was sunny and felt so good with mellow vibes, Kaunertal was maniac with tons of shredders from all over Europe, and a miniramp was added to the parking lot setup. Fort that last one, Go Shred organized a rad shuttle service from Innnsbruck to Kaunertal including coffee, croissant and a Volcom surprise bag Kitzsteinhorn, which happens to be Volcom partner resort, was absolutely packed.. It was madness in the park, with almost as many riders hiking the park as there were on the T-bar. You can now ride mor than 1200 vertical meters.. Check Kitzsteinhorn.at for live updates Stubai Then the tour finished with the Stubai Glacier opening with a good session on the Friday, and Saturday afternoon we set up at the bottom of the new multi million € Gondola and prepared everything for the smiling guests. With some drinks provided from our partner Jimmy’s bar, music,  finger food, and a big raffle, everyone enjoyed themselves.

Volcom Zip Tech® Jacket-to-Pant System Keeps Snow Out
It's no secret, being cold and wet is the easiest way to ruin a good day on the hill. And let's face it, everyone falls down, slides out, sits on a icy/wet chairlift and so on. It is snowboarding after all, and snow is going to try to find a way up your jacket and down your pants, soaking your base layers making it difficult to regulate your body temperature and in general cause you discomfort. Which is why over a decade ago the design team at Volcom developed the innovative Zip Tech® "zip your jacket to your pants" system for Volcom Outerwear as the first line of defense in keeping your body dry and your stoke high.
