VOLCOM 2012 EUROPEAN WILD IN THE PARKS CHAMPIONSHIPS

Volcom Stone 2012 European Wild In the Parks Championships Sevilla, Spain

On Saturday, October 6th, after the summer tour all over Europe, Volcom Stone’s Wild In The Parks celebrated its European Championships in Sevilla, Spain at the Plaza de Armas skatepark. This skateboarding contest has become a European benchmark over the years and once again was stocked full of action under the bright sun of Sevilla.

Around 90 competitors made the trip from all around Europe (Czech Republic, Finland, Germany and even Greece to name a few countries) to find themselves competing for the European WITP champion title. The contestants were greeted by summer weather, a really fun skatepark and tons of locals coming to check the action.

Roberto Aleman, Mark Appleyard, Aaron Suski, Javier Sarmiento and Axel Cruysbergs were our special guests to judge all the tricks that went down on the 3 areas of the skatepark. They also were seen signing autographs and destroying the course in between heats to the delight of the audience.

In the 14 and Under division, the kids did not disappoint. Little Oskar from Norway had millions of tricks in his bag and took the 3rd place while Ville Wester represented Copenhagen in good style finishing up in second place. Who won? Tiago Lopes from Portugal, he killed it all day, had a bunch of groupies and fan club, landing almost all his tricks first try (double flip down the blocks or boardslide flip out on the down rail as example). He went home with a huge travel bag full of stuff and 500€ prize money….

The 15 and Over division final was a war with loads of tricks going down on the three areas. Bruno Senra (last year 14- winner) was a standout in the qualifications with such tricks as kickflip crooks down the hubba, but he didn’t end up making it to the podium, as well as other kids killing it such as George Poole. In the end, Matisse Blanc from France took second place, landing full speed treflips over the big gap. Belgium skaters were fully represented with Jonathan Vlerick taking the second place and Simon Duprez taking the win killing it all day. He is now 500€ richer and won so much Volcom gear that he had to ask for some help to carry it all away.

Then the open division was the icing on the cake, so much action went down that you had to be there to experience it. There are so many talented skaters in Europe, mad props to all of you. From full speed noseblunt slides of Frenchman Pierre Hoarau to massive hardflips from Portuguese Jorge Simoens, bs 360 on demand from Gard Hvaara, just to name a few. The skatepark got destroyed properly during the finals. We need to mention here local Carlos Neira was on fire, getting the support of the audience. Back to back on a broken board, he landed a boardslide, a nollie flip down the stairs and a back lip ! He was awarded the Electric hype of the day, hyping also all the locals! Thaynan Costa from Portugal took the 3rd place and 500€ in style (switch heelflips down the gap, hardflip backlip on the rail etc…); Christian Estrada from Spain was tech and gnar at the same time and destroyed everything in his path into the 2nd place on the podium and 600€. The Open division 2012 Champion is Octavio Trinidade from Austria who impressed the most the judges.

Prizes were given, product toss went mad, and almost everyone went home with something. Special thanks a lot to all the skaters and parents who made the trip, sometimes pretty far (driving all the way from Germany as for example). And also we need to thank to everyone that help run this event smoothly: the staff, SVQ Sevilla Skate Club, Impact Sea, Electric and Jart for the extra prizes and Burn for the free drinks and the PA system. Thanks also to everyone who helped run this 9th European WITP season all over Europe ! See you all next year !

Week 11: Cowgirl Clue "Utopia" | Volcom Cyber Singles Club
Burger Records x Volcom present Cyber Singles Club, features music from the newest breed of Burger Records stars in the making, recorded exclusively at Volcom Studio, and will be released for free download & streaming every Monday for 20 weeks beginning April 17th. Week 11: Cowgirl Clue - "Utopia"   Grab the free download Ashley Calhoun, aka Wu-Wu, aka Cowgirl Clue, made her Burger debut with one of the rarest and most sought-after Burger Records releases, the limited-edition Halloween split with The Garden from 2014. Since then she's expanded her excellent experimental pop sound into this wild one-woman project and released her debut EP, Limelite, on Burger Records cassette. Cowgirl Clue first experienced the Burger Records phenomenon from her hometown of Austin, Texas during SXSW. "My cousin owns a venue there called Hotel Vegas. They host Burgermania every year, so I started going and getting to know them," say Ashley. "Then I moved to Orange County and I happened to live down the street from them, so I kept seeing them at shows." Life in Orange County soon provided a new perspective into Burger's operations and influence. "It's just been growing for years. It's very developed now and there's an aesthetic that's prominent," she explains, "I think my perception of Burger Records changed as it grew." Like a lot of people on the scene, Burgerama was at the center of this experiential perception. "It’s all ages, so there are tons of kids going crazy throwing flips off the stage. I think that whoever is experiencing that for this time period is pretty lucky. Unlike shows I went to when I was younger, going to punk shows, I see so many women and so many girls and people of all ages. It gives people an opportunity to connect with like-minded creative, young individuals... just the community. It's really cool to see people come together for music and art." We are happy to premiere Cowgirl Clue’s latest song, "Utopia", an inspiring tune about keeping your passion true. "As far as Utopia goes, I wrote it to connect my life to the industry," she notes, "The lyrics are implying that money may or may not buy happiness, but in the end, the industry is expensive and tries to get the best of you and your utopia. I feel it's important to stay true to yourself in life and you can be who you want to be. That's why I wrote Utopia ;)." Catch up on previous week's releases: Week 1: The Side Eyes "Cat Call" Week 2: The High Curbs "Empty Bottles" Week 3: VAJJ "Honey Pie" Week 4: Wyatt Blair "Pop Your Heart Out" Week 5: The Flytraps "Female of the Species" Week 6: Hammered Satin "Upward Spiral" Week 7: Death Valley Girls "Born Again and Again" Week 8: Vision "Light" Week 9: Meow Twins "Ratchet Witch" Week 10: White Night "Dirty Water"

Week 10: White Night "Dirty Water" | Volcom Cyber Singles Club
Burger Records x Volcom present Cyber Singles Club, features music from the newest breed of Burger Records stars in the making, recorded exclusively at Volcom Studio, and will be released for free download & streaming every Monday for 20 weeks beginning April 17th. Week 10: White Night - "Dirty Water"   Grab the free download When attempting to describe the Fullerton / Anaheim, CA quintet, White Night (to those who have yet to give them a listen), one may face a challenge. Are they punk? Are they psychedelic? Are they attempting to go back to the days when pop or even pop-punk weren’t insulting things to be compared to? Or are they just plain ol' good time, hard-nosed rock and roll? The truth of the matter is that White Night is all of these things and more. While more bands are working to blur the traditional boundaries of nearly every genre, White Night fully embodies that melting pot sound which is reinvigorating rock and roll and its many sub-genres today. Like many bands that came before them, White Night was conceived as a way to meet girls. Guitarist and vocalist Frank Agnew, bassist and vocalist Jon Raines and drummer Mike Gonzales had previously played in bands embedded in the Orange County hardcore scene. But it wasn’t the best scene within which to reach girls, so they switched things up. "White Night started playing in mid-2008," says Jon. "Two of us had been playing together for a few years before that in Pterodacdudes and the Frank-fronted Shred Savage for about the same amount of time. Both bands were on the heavier side and we thought it would be cool to play stuff more pop-influenced and maybe more girls would come to the shows. The new sound soon found a home with their friends at Burger Records. "Sean and Lee are friends from way back," explains Jon. "Mike played in Thee Makeout Party for a bit and we've all been roommates at one point or another." The label would release White Night’s debut cassette Tour EP in 2009 which was followed by Immortal cassette in 2010, and most recently their full length album Weird Night in 2016. The band including Troy Rounsevllie on keyboard and Kevin Carle on guitar are working on their next record. They are also anticipating their first tour in Japan. Tour starts on July 20 and all Japanese dates are with Lenguas Largas from Tucson, Arizona.
